On behalf of Natasha, Namita, Lata and myself, I want to thank you and your team for giving us such a wondrful trip of your country, The arrangements were very good, the guides were very helpful. Emily and Linda are outstanding, please extend our thanks and compliments to them.They were both knowledgeable and very helpful.
Timo is extremely good too and his English is the best of the four . Michelle was also very helpful and sincere though her English is a little limited.The only improvement could be the quality and variety of the vegetarian food - howevere,, I know this is difficult and appreciate the care you took..
Overall, everyone including the drivers was very kind and helpful.
Thank you for your help and cooperation, Lyn.
Of course I will give a note to Tripadvisor. Both for your company and for your very good service. I have already told several people back home about your company, and I think at least one couple are planning to visit China next year. We are going to invite them for dinner, and then we will tell about our experience, and about your company. I just wondered why is it important not to mention your company’s website or email address? I thought that could be good...
One thing I want to tell you is that it is very important that the guides can speak good English. Most of the guides did speak very fine English, especially good in Chengdu. Both Jessie and David were doing very good in explanation and in speaking English, and the same for nearly all the other guides. But it was a bit harder in Beijing with Cici. She was a wonderful person, but her English was not that good. We struggled a bit for understanding what she was telling. I’m telling this to you now because I want to advise you to not only trust the evaluation form given by the guide herself. It might be difficult for the guest to give negative feedback in front of the same person. So evaluation related to the guide should be asked for in a mail like this. That is my opinion anyway.
As tourist we are very different, I can imagine. Some people like this and others like something else. For us we will rate Guilin as the most spectacular place and Shanghai as the city with lowest interest. We loved the stay in Guilin, and we would advise tourists to spend as many days there as we had. Not less. Shanghai was mostly concrete and steel, buildings and modern city. But of course also gardens and temples. Maria did a very good job there.
And I liked to visit you and your company in Chengdu. It was nice. I love to meet people more than watching buildings and temples. And you confirmed that you were just as nice and clever as my first impression after mailing with you. And thanks for the gifts. I will definitely wear the tie. I’m enclosing some pictures. Hope you like them. And you can use our name and mail if you need someone to be a reference for you or your company.
Hope to see you again, one day. Take care.

Thank you for organizing our trip and the gifts you gave us. We had a great time. Your service was punctual and addressed our questions with clear explanations and efficiently. The arrangements we made all occurred as we had planned and there were no delays to our schedule, even despite some heavy traffic conditions. We changed one of our organized excursions and that went smoothly, it was not an issue for our driver or our guide. We would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to others. It was the first time we had engaged in our own group holiday and would certain strongly consider this again. It proved to be comfortable, relaxed and most informative. We completed our holiday with a very positive opinion of the history, culture and the friendly and welcoming Chinese people. There were 3 in our group and we had excellent guides and drivers who were free with their views and knowledge which greatly enhanced our overall China experience. Thank you for your outstanding organization and your friendly amicable attitude.
We all thought the trip was good value. Will forward photos in another email.

Hi dear Mrs. Stephanie,
I'm home now and everything was smoothly yesterday during the panda tour and at the airport.
I would like to thank you for all support before and during our wonderful journey in China!
I will recommend you and China discovery to all my friend who would like to visit your beautiful country.
Thank you so much again!
We are having a wonderful time. It is all going at a good pace for my husband and the guides and drivers are very good. I already recommended your company to someone we met today who was here on business so he took your details and will contact you with his wife as he wants to do the same as us. Thank you so much for planning this. The hotels have been in good locations too.
We are back from our 31 days visit to China. It was wonderful and we are very impressed with the progress made since I was last in China (about 20 years ago). The cruise was wonderful in all respects. The room was very beautiful and we were surprised that the executive suite included the VIP treatment. The excursions were very well organized and interesting. Also, you coordinated well with the guide that was picking us up in Chongqing. I can recommend this cruise wholeheartedly.
All the best,
Jan and Pierre
Just a word of thanks having got back from our 3 Gorges river trip. Thankfully my health had improved enough to go and I had a wonderful time and even felt strong enough to do all those 300 step excursions from the boat every day! My friend Wayne had some back trouble on the penultimate day but the treatment Dr Liu gave him seems to have put him right. A good example of Chinese medicine!
The tour was great fun! Here are some comments:
1) Kunming: hotel was fine, lots to see while walking around. Our guide, E for the Stone Forrest and Dragon Gate was excellent. Dinner at Laofengzi and the optional add-in of the theatre show Dynamic Yunnan were great too! We did not go to the Sani Village.
2) Xi’an: hotel was fine, location was excellent – very close to markets! We were disappointed that the International Marathon forced us to do all the activities in one day – which was really too much to do in one day. We really wanted to ride bicycles on the city wall, but could not since the marathon blocked off the roads. Kimi, our guide, was pretty good – but not as good as E in Kunming. Wild Goose Pagoda – we had another ‘local’ guide, Frank, he was great too!
3) Beijing: hotel was fine, location was excellent. Group tours – did not like the included shopping (Pearl Market, Chinese Traditional Medicine Clinic, Tea shop), and the group members were older and slower so we did not get to spend as much time at the Great Wall or at the Ming Tombs as we would have liked at Mutianyu. Simatai Wall was FANTASTIC!
4) In general -- We would have liked to have one large bed in all hotels instead of two small beds. There were also a lot of time changes that made it so that we had less free time to explore on our own.
