The tour today for great wall was fantastic!!!
Justin, our guide, is excellent!
I'm loving China!
Thanks for the follow up. Overall, we enjoyed the trip and below are some of my feedback.
Guides and driver
All the guides and driver are very professional and knowledgeable about the area we visited. Their level of English is very good and they make the trip very enjoyable. We highly recommend all the three guides to other future guests of you.
In Kunming, the stone forest was interesting. Dali was a quite rush and deserve two nights stay, in our opinion. Quite an interesting town and its surrounding. LiJiang is the highlight and definitely worth a second trip again. The itinerary was quite tight as we were quite exhausted from seeing so many towns and villages within the 1.5 days. Shuhe is probably a better place for foreign tourist to based in and stay (eg banyan tree resort) as it is less crowded with local tourist and able to enjoy the ancient town. There were just too many local tourists at Lijiang, even at night.
Highly recommended and especially I have to make so many changes. Really thankful for your service and promptness in your response. Will contact you again in our future visit/trips to china.
Again, thank you for everything.
I have just got back from KL, Beijing and KL after the most wonderful holiday, and wanted to say a big thank you for all your work and organizing my trip to Beijing, which was perfect.
I want to complement you and your company on the organization and quality of the service. I found everything worked without a hitch. Randy, the courier was well informed and handled everything excellently. I was impressed at his knowledge of the subject, as I studied Chinese history for my first degree and know he was correct and precise in what he said. He was friendly without being intrusive and explained things well.
Randy was also well versed in how to take care of clients, which he said was your company’s training. I must complement you on your comprehensive approach, it was superb.
In addition, I felt confident with your driver, I think his name was Mr Tin (I know his name translates into the word ‘Candy’ so you can confirm that). Even in all the traffic I felt impressed by his ability and skills as a professional chauffeur.
As a woman travelling alone it can be difficult, therefore I must complement you all on your service and will be pleased to recommend your company to anyone travelling to China, and I hope to go to Shanghai next year.
Thank you again.
The tour was great. The tour guide was engaging and very efficient. He even took us toe get traditional Hot pot which was a highlight! The pandas were great and we loved People’s square and all of the chaos. All in all it was a good tour.
We had a great time! Thank you for the arrangement. I would definitely recommend you to others. Thank you.
"I want to thank you for arranging a very good guide & driver in Shanghai. Both Rocky & Siao Ma are very efficient & caring, Rocky is very knowledgeable and very well verse about our Chinese history, very impressive. I highly recommend both of them."
"We had a wonderful time in Huangshan, we were brave to climb that mountain, even my husband did it, slowly, but we did it. The Huangshan guide was excellent, the hotel you booked us was beautiful and people there were very friendly. Love the food too, especially bamboo shoot."
"What a pleasure to finally met you!! Meeting you was the highlight of my visit to China!! And thank you for taking us to dinner and given us such wonderful experience! The food was so tasty, the ambience was wonderful, my husband liked it very much! But the best part of all was having it with you! We enjoyed it enormously! This is such a memorable journey, and you helped made it happened Thank you for being so detail oriented; it is incredible for you being so young yet so thorough!
Yesterday we saw the Big Buddha at Ling Yun Mt, the weather was perfect and no crowd. We did not go down the stairs to the foot of the Buddha cause it really is too high and steep. Later we went to the Ebony Museum, what an amazing & massive collection! In the evening we went to see a show, it was the 4th show we saw, one in Shanghai, one in Huangshan, one in Yangshou, and the best one here on Sichuan. It was almost 10:30 pm my time we got back to the hotel.
And this morning we had to wake up early for our 8 o'clock journey to Mt.Emei. We climbed the steeped & very wet steps, it was a little hard today because it was so cloudy and cold and the air is so thin on top! We did not walk down the mountain, instead, we rode the Sedan Chair! What an experience! We loved it. Those guys are so strong and fast!! "

The tour was exactly what we wanted. It met every expectation.
The car was excellent.
The driver was excellent.
The guide was excellent.
The guide and driver shared information which was terrific so between them they knew all the right spots to take us. The outline of the trip was very good and we covered everything plus more. The café’s selected for lunch and dinner were excellent for local food. The guide gave us information and spoke with respect to the local people. And taught us to show the same respect which was good.
The tour moved at our pace and we were never hurried if we wanted to stay longer at one site. Always offered toilet breaks and asked if we required a rest break. I also sat in the front of the car so I could see more. When sites were very busy with tourists we went to the smaller sites first then the larger sites when less tourists were there. Guide was excellent and you should use him every time. The experience of being able to go to the top level of an earthen building was amazing. One has to go up the stairs early before many tourists arrive or late after the tourists had left. This was an extra small cost 15Y but really worth it. The local lady that took us up was terrific. And the guide was excellent at interpreting for us.
The tour went smoothly with no problems. We would be happy to email any other western clients to talk to them about this Fujian Tulou trip, in the future.
We are not making a web page of our trip. We can send you some photos in a week or so.
Thank you for all your service and prompt replies to our emails.
