Hi there,

We are writing to thank Mr Wang for working with us from the planning phase to the final reality. He responded to my emails quickly, listened to me and answered my questions patiently and clearly. He even suggested altering our trip plan to avoid the huge crowd due to the May Day holiday, and thank goodness, we did change our plans.

During this 23-day trip, we were taken care of from the moment we arrived in Kunming airport to the last minute we were dropped off at Beijing Train Station. All tour guides and private drivers were professional and personal. All made our travel life so much easier.

We highly recommend Chinadiscovery, especially Mr Wang, to our friends and anyone that is interested in visiting China.

Thank you, Mr Wang, for all your hard work and patience helping me planning this grand trip that will last a lifetime. Hopefully we will talk to you in 4 years when we plan a trip to visit northwest part of China.

Sincerely,

Phyllis and Larry

Dear Amber,

Thank you for your kind assistance in planning our ZhangJIajie and Fenghuang Ancient Town family tour. In general, we had a great time.

The booking process is fast and easy, our enquiries were replied promptly.

Our tour guide Ms Liuli is very friendly and responsible. With her help, we didn't have to wait very long even though many attractions were crowded.

A very enjoyable trip, we had already recommended China Discovery to our friend who's planning to visit China this month.

Regards

Hi Jack,

First of all we would like to thank you whole heartedly for planning such an amazing trip to China for us! We have had a truly magical time - our tour far surpassed our expectations in every way. The itinerary that you put together completely met our needs and encompassed everything that we wanted and more.

The guides (and drivers) were all brilliant and we have very much enjoyed talking with them. The guides were all fun, knowledgeable and fluent in English. We were initially concerned that having guides with us all the time would be stifling, but that was not the case at all!

We would like to give a special mention to our visit to Yunnan where our guides William, Sofia, Lee, Amy and Aten looked after us. We loved Yunnan - one of our favourite parts of the trip was our cruise down the Li River, our stay at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat and the hike in the Longji Rice Terraces. Thank you to William who helped to make this so special.

We have also loved seeing the Pandas in Chengdu, the Terracotta Army in Xi’an and of course the Great Wall at Jinshanling. Please pass on our thanks to Peter for hiking the 6k with us - another highlight of our trip!

We have been amazed that we have been able to see so much of your beautiful country without it feeling too rushed or overwhelming. The places that we visited were all incredible and there is nothing we would want to change.

The accommodation for the most part was excellent; we did feel that the e-outfitting hotels in Lijiang and Shangri-La were not so great but this is an observation and not a complaint. We were not staying long enough to complain but if we were doing the trip again this is one thing we would consider changing.

The transport worked really well. All of our drivers were great and the transfers by domestic flight and high speed train were well timed and easy to navigate. Some of the transport hubs are HUGE and it would be very easy to get a little lost! Having a clear meeting point at each station could be helpful.

Thank you once again, it really was the trip of a lifetime! I am very happy for you to use all or some of my comments.

Thank you so much,

Mary & Steve
