Mike Liu - Our Experienced China Travel Consultant

If you can open this article, you must want to know me. Thank you for your support. The Chinese have an old saying "Meeting is fate." After this instant, we are friends. Dear friends, I am honored to meet you at China Discovery. I'm from the south of China. Although young, I've been to many places in China. Up to Qingdao, Shandong, China, and down to Sanya, Hainan, all left my footprints. Travel makes me understand that if I only use books to understand the traditional culture of a country, it is always the tip of the iceberg.

China is one of the four ancient civilizations with a history of 5,000 years. It is also the most populous country in the world. The land area is also among the highest in the world. China has 34 provinces and 56 ethnic groups, and each province and city has a unique local dialect and unique dietary habits.

Influenced by my grandpa, I have been interested in Chinese history and culture since I was a child. During my studies, I studied Chinese Go and Chinese traditional musical instrument Erhu, and achieved good results. Before working in the tourism industry, I used to work for Go educational institutions for a while.

Under these experiences, I am better at the line arrangement with strong Chinese characteristics, such as Zhangjiajie, Phoenix Ancient City, and so on. Whether you are interested in travel or want to discuss Chinese history and culture with me, you are welcome to contact me at any time. Mike is waiting for you at China Discovery.

Thanks Mike;

Our hearts go out to the people of China. We sincerely hope that the situation in China, and the rest of the world gets back to normal soon.

We sent a package of N95 masks to one our tour guides several weeks ago, as a small token to show our appreciation for her efforts while we were in China, and to show our concern for the well-being of her family.

Thanks very much for sending the information and suggestions about dealing with the virus. We are starting to experience many of the same problems that the Chinese people faced when the virus first started to spread, and your suggestions will be most helpful.

Best Wishes,

Dear Mike,

Thank you for your lovely mail. This epidemic was badly managed by some countries, they thought just like SARs only Asian were affected. However due to their complacency whole world faces lock down.

Good news is in China the epidemic is under control. However due to continue epidemic tourism business are badly affected for indefinite period.

I am aware personally you are affected. How do you manage your situation.

We over here experience drop in business but not as bad as during SARs.

We manage somehow through experiences to overcome this epidemic through reducing expenditure prudently.

Lets us all pray for Divine intervention for mankind to globally overcome this terrible situation soon.

Many thanks for your mail.

Dear Mike,

Merry Christmas and Compliment of the Seasons.

Due to our busy schedule and family commitment we were unable to provide you our testimonial as appreciation early.

If my comment on this email can be considered as our testimonial.

Here it is.

Reason why I choose Bamboo Tour to book our Yangtze Cruise was due to Mike Liu prompt respond when I log into Bamboo Tour website.

Bamboo Tour quotation was slightly cheaper, payment was into proper channel as well.

Mike professionalism gave me piece of mind when some members in our group had to change passport.

We did not face any difficult issue due to clear instruction received.

Mike and his team were helpful when I asked for additional info and quote several time for our land excursion.

Thank you Mike for your valuable services.

Sincerely,

Juana

Hello Mike:

I will send some sceneries pics from each place we have been to, without the participants, since I need to get others to give me permissions In order to release their pictures.  (Under separate email).

1)  How do you like our tour arrangements and are you willing to recommend our service to your friends?

Your tour arrangements were seamless and perfect. We couldn’t ask for better arrangements.  Everything went very smoothly.

Our very special thanks to Rita and Mike.  You guys made our trip a very memorable experience traveling through the Chengdu and Yangtze regions.  

All of our Tour Guides were great - Cherry, May, Nancy, Susan, and Jack were the best. They all could speak perfect English, and Jack was able to speak to us in Cantonese too!  

We have a “Special Thank You” to Kathy and her team on the Yangtze gold 5 cruise ship.  She was most caring and helpful to us from the time we arrived on the cruise and throughout our stay. Upon her recommendation, we had opted for the better accommodation category and dining, and she made sure we understood the various tour options etc. When Jack (our brother in law) inadvertently scraped his leg and it started to bleed, she and one of the Captain’s Assistant came to his aid.  Since the cruise ship’s First Aid station was not adequately equipped with bandages, etc, Kathy and her staff made sure he received the proper first aid care needed.  The Captain Assistant accompanied him to the nearby hospital once the boat docked, and they made sure he was ok.  We could not have asked for more. He is doing fine.

Also, thank you so much for sending one of your tour guide, Frank, and driver to pick us up at midnight when we arrived in Guangzhou Airport that first night. That was greatly appreciated.

The added bonus of the Pearl River Night Cruise was a very nice gesture of China Discovery.  It was a last minute surprise, and we all enjoyed the lovely lights and beautiful sceneries of Guangzhou from the river perspective.  Thank you very much.

(2)  If you come to China again, would you like to use our service again?

Definitely. The quality of your service is commendable, your Tour Consultant, Mike Liu, did a great job in helping us to plan, formulate and worked out all the details of our trip.  All of  your tour guides were great, genuine individuals who were more than willing to go a second mile to make sure the customers are satisfied.  I have nothing bad/ or undesirable to say really.

On our next trip to China, we will be sure to contact you again. Thanks for all you have done, you have six very satisfied customers. We will recommend you without any hesitations to all of our friends and associates.  Keep up the good work!

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Ho

Hi Mike,

Here are my answers below.

1. Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?

Mike was excellent with communications through out the whole process of deciding and finally accepting the proposed tour. He was very good with the questions we asked and provided excellent and thorough information at all times. Very quick at answering our questions.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

Tour arrangements were excellent. Everything was as expected from the confirmation letter. Guides were there to meet us at the correct places and times. Drivers were fantastic to cope with the amount of traffic on the roads. Hotels were top class and in areas that were easily accessible to what we wanted to do at nights or in spare time. Flights and trains were very good. The service that the guides provided was excellent. All guides communicated clearly and were easily understood and they understood our questions. Their knowledge of subjects on the tour and on China was outstanding and they were willing and able to give us a personal view of China as well. Drivers were very safe and provided us with safe transport where ever we went.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Would have no hesitation in recommending your service to any body who is contemplating a visit or visits to China. Your service is outstanding.

4. Your general opinion on us?

Very professional, easy to communicate with, exceptional guides and drivers, travel consultant provided us with first class service. Booking a service online sometimes comes with thoughts of what if things go wrong or do not work as easily as they should, especially with a language barrier. However, we had no worries with your service as it was very professional even down to communication with us and the guides when something needed changed. We were fully informed.

5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

From a personal point of view, we would suggest that train rides are all booked with first class seats as the added costs would not be great in the overall cost. We believe that most Western travels would appreciate the little bit extra comfort and room. With your guide evaluations, you could easily email forms prior to tour starting so that we can fill them in and return email at completion of each segment of the tour. Sometimes getting the form just before you finish with the guide does not give you much time to fully think about the feedback especially if it was only for transfers from train/ plane to next boat.

6. Can we use your comments of our service, the photos or other images that you took on the tour for our websites, brochures, marketing and publicity? If yes, could you please send us some of your photos by E-mail?

We have no problem with you using our comments or images if they suit your needs.

7. We sometimes have requests from potential customers who would like to inquire from or our ex-customers. May they contact you for advices?

We would be happy to offer our advice if needed.
