Johnson,

We had a good time in Kunming and Chongqing. The guides and drivers were very good. By the time I contacted you, it was just before the trip and one area was not covered regarding Chongqing but all went well no matter what. The guides were able to accommodate us all the way. We took probably 1,000 pictures but have not loaded them yet and cannot do so now as all we have is an IPad, and we used a camera for almost everything. 

I do not have many immediate suggestions and we would be happy to recommend your services to anyone else. We found a restaurant on Green Lake in Kunming which was superior to the one recommended by your company. We showed Flavie, our guide and she should be able to inform you. Again regarding food, when we went to lunch, the quantity of food was usually 2X what we could have eaten. For a large group, there is no problem, I am sure but for 2 or 3 people, I suggest, the guides ask what and how much people would prefer. We personally would like to eat with the guides as that is a good time to get to know them better. As so few people, even in the hotels, speak reasonably good English, a guide is essential though certainly one could travel to the sights by oneself, it would be challenging so services like yours are needed most of the time.

You may use my comments as you wish. Ask me in a month and we should have photos uploaded when we are home to send you. Flavie took several of us in various places which she may be willing to share as well.
