We had a really wonderful trip - thank you for all of your arrangements. I really appreciate all of your efforts to accommodate our group’s many requests leading up to the tour.
The best single aspect during the tour was the quality of the guides in each city. Each was excellent at flexibly accommodating our group’s requests, and in tailoring to the wide needs of our group, from my 74-year-old father down to my 11.5-month-old niece.
If I had to choose one detail of the tour to improve, it would be the hotel in Hangzhou, which compared relatively poorly to the great hotels in Beijing, Huangshan, and Suzhou in terms of room quality. Even so, the breakfast at the Hangzhou hotel was excellent, as was the location.
Overall, we had an extremely memorable trip, and are so happy that three generations could share such a wonderful experience together. My parents have already recommended China Discovery to friends, and I will also be in touch again the next time we visit China and need guide services.
Thank you again for all of your efforts on our behalf for this tour!
