Hello Vivien,

I am back home in Sydney. I gave some feedback directly to Celina before I left Harbin. The trip was great. Celina and the driver (Maquan) were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Several of my Chinese friends are jealous that I have been there. Many of my Australian friends have never heard of the place. They are hearing from me now.

Of course it was freezing, but no ice or snow carvings without that of course. I was not expecting a lot about Harbin, but it turned out to be a city well above my expectations. People were pleasant and I have lots of great memories. I especially liked the scatter of ice and snow sculptures scattered around the inner city, and I liked learning about the development of the city, and Celina's knowledge on this satisfied all my questions and curiosity. 

I will be returning to China for 3-4 months in April. Sometime in that period I will want to organize a trip to somewhere in China. Not sure where yet but I will be in touch.

Best wishes, and many thanks

Dear Vivien,

On return from China, my student, Justin Ullman, told me about the excellent tour of Beijing that you had organized for him and his parents. He was full of praise for all the guides as well the way in which you and your company took care of their needs.

I just wanted to let you know how deeply I appreciate you and your company's handling of all the arrangements for their visit. I had recommended them to use your services based on my own family's experience last summer (2018), and I was so pleased to hear that you organized their trip with the same efficiency and courtesy, and to their entire satisfaction.

Many thanks and warm regards

Sincerely

Dear Ariel

I have been wanting to write to you since I came back to Cape Town in order to let you know that thanks to your company and ESPECIALLY thanks to my trip organiser, Vivien Li, I had the very best time in China. It was my first time to China, I am a woman of 58 traveling solo, and it was the beginning of winter, I had to pay so much more because I was traveling on my own, I was a little anxious and I was getting quotes from many different travel companies … I had a feeling that I should go with Vivien and I am so happy I did. She delivered on everything she promised me and more!

Every advice that Vivien Li offered me was the very best advice. For example to include transportation to and from airport and train stations and making sure drivers came into the stations to get my ticket, using 3 or 4 star hotels which were good enough and mostly more than comfortable and luxurious with usually great breakfast, booking for tours alone mostly and some with other people.

The guides were amazing and super reliable and punctual. The drivers who met me at the airports or stations were also punctual and communicated with me with the translator. If there were at any time any confusion I would contact Vivien and she would communicate with the guides and drivers to confirm that all was in order.

Vivien even had to act as a friend and calm me down when I thought I had lost my passport or when I received an email from the airline that my  flight was delayed and not mentioning that the date of that flight .

My guide in Xian came back to the hotel with her husband at 8pm to take me to a chemist as I had a problem with a colon and they anticipated that the chemist would not understand me.  My guide in Tibet ensured I rested the day of my arrival to prepare me for 2 days of high altitude. All my other guides were knowledgeable and we shared some fun times together. My guide in Shangai called Vivien to tell her I was dying to visit the Shanghai Jewish museum and the next day it was done so that I could join an organised Jewish Museum tour at 9.30am. The stories are endless!

I was blow away by all these act of kindness and great organisation.

You are welcome to give my contact details to anyone from South Africa or anywhere else in the world. Vivien truly organised a first class trip for me.

Vivien is an absolute asset to your company. I will forever remain grateful to her and to all the staff involved in making this trip so unforgettable.

Kind regards
