Hi Tracy,

We are safely back in the UK having had a wonderful trip to parts of China, organised by your company, and also your extended care of us as we tried to get to Hong Kong during Typhoon Mangkhut!  We enjoyed our shortened visit to HK despite missing our son due to the typhoon delays.

You asked for comments of our trip and the organisation by your company, but first I apologise for not giving a comments sheet back re our visit to Guilin. This was because we did not see our fantastic guide "Smiley" later in our stay whilst waiting for the typhoon to move away.  Please let her know she was great - we did leave some money for her and the driver with our stand-in guide Stephen. I hope she and the driver got it.

First of all you, Tracy, have been an excellent organizer and responder to my questions and when things got difficult with onward travel and extra hotel nights in Guilin the team in Chengdu and Guilin worked well together.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Xian, Chengdu and Guilin.

I am not sure the train from Beijing to Xian was the best choice after a long flight from UK via Amsterdam and into Beijing.  It made for a very long journey time and a flight to Xian might have been better as we were already at Beijing airport.

All the guides and drivers were excellent in each city.  We learnt a lot from the guides and they all had good English and good personalities.

We did have one problem on arrival in Chengdu by train from Xian as the guide was not waiting where we had expected to be met. We were lucky that a train/station employee was able to help us and contact you and for you to alert the guide. Chengdu station has multiple exits and we should have been met at the platform arrival exit or told which other exit to go to.

In general everything worked smoothly and the quality of hotels was also good. My only negative would be the hotel in Guilin, which did not offer food one night because they had a conference and a wedding, although they had promised us food after 8pm.  At 8:10pm we were told we could not after all have food and were told to go out into town!

The hotels in Xian and especially Chengdu were very good.

Overall we were very happy with chinadiscovery.com and we would certainly recommend the company and its ability to organise a private tour with excellent guides.

Lastly the final thing you organised was the transfer from Shenzhen to my son's house in Stanley on Hong Kong Island. Mr Liu was waiting with a very nice van at the right exit from the train station and we were soon on our way dodging the fallen trees and the clear-up vehicles.  We arrived quickly and safely.

Thank you for organising this great trip for us.
