Hi Jack

Took us a couple of days to get back to normal here

Both tours were amazing

We all agreed that Zhangjiajie is one of the most amazing places we have ever been

Beautiful scenery, unbelievable landscapes and basically incredible sights and attractions

Disappointed we missed the Fairy Fox show, but that was just timing

Xian was equally as interesting and to spend our Christmas Day with the Terracotta Warriors was a Christmas to remember

Both guides were brilliant and very knowledgeable

Thanks again for arranging this for us and I have already been passing China Discovery details on to others and will continue to do so

Vivien,

It was a great trip. Candy was a wonderful guide. The van was extremely comfortable and made the one day trip very easy for my family. We would definitely use her again in the future and recommend her to others.

Thank you once again for helping set up a memorable trip.

Dear Riley,

We just arrived in Manila. Thank you again for sending us a gift. We really appreciate it. Also, thank you for organizing our wonderful trip. This trip is one of our unforgettable and great trips. Will surely recommend you and will surely book another trip with you. Martin and Mary is very insightful and detailed in every area where we head to. They really know what to share with us. Hotels and Foods are all fit with us. Our tummies and body were happy. haha! Also the roadtrip was smooth. But the van in Chengdu gives me a little headache due to the smell of smoke inside the car quite strong. But everything is OK. Thank You again. 

Kind Regards,

Monica

Hello Riley, 

Happy new year to you! We had a great time in China. Everything was very well organised and the tour went very smoothly. The guides Tom in Kunming, Carey (?) in Dali and Jack in Lijiang were excellent. Very knowledgeable and went out of their way to make us comfortable.  Aten in Shangri La was ok but not to the standard of the other three. The only negative would be that the heating in the hotels were slightly inadequate so we were cold! Otherwise we had a great trip and would definitely recommend your company to others. 

Thanks and regards.
