We had a good tour and here are my replies:
Everything was just fine. Our guide, Barry, was superb and even went out of his way to arrange our evening visit to the Sichuan Opera. He was excellent. The driver we had was also very good today. You, Ian, were very quick to respond and very helpful in planning our tour. Very impressive.
Thanks for your help.
Thank you very much for your concern on our trip!
Everything is fine, I will keep contact with you on my trip to china!
I am back home now after my holiday in China.
Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to you for your patience, your prompt response to my enquiries and help with all the arrangements to make this trip possible for me and my friend.
Secondly the tour arrangements went well and the tour guides that were assigned to us were friendly, informative and helpful. In Xian, we had a delightful surprise. We was booked into the Mecure at Renmin Square, a 3.5 star hotel but your associate arranged for us to be upgraded to the Grand Mecure, a 5 star hotel. Please say a big thank you to Mary for us.
Thirdly I was very impressed by the intregity of your Company. In Zhengzhou I had to make a last minute cancellation of a tour and much to my surprise I got a refund back for the cancelled tour which was unexpected.
I am satisfied with the services you and your Company has rendered to me and my friend and I would be happy to recommend your services to those who would like to travel to China. I will also personally be please to answer any queries your customers may have by email if they want confirmation by previous clients who have used your services.
I look forward to using your Company's services again.

We all had a wonderful time in China with some very good memories. Wonder Wang was excellent with organizing our China holiday and accommodated our every need promptly without any problems. The Holiday to China went extremely well.
Beijing - Johnny - He did a good job, but didn't do any more than he had to. He produced the Feed Back Form just before we were to catch the train, leaving us no time to fill it in, so we signed a blank form and he filled it in himself.
Xian - Donna - She was very good, friendly and helpful and catered to all our needs.
Jiuzhaigou - Frank (Dong Dong) - Very good, extremely knowledgeable and easy going.
Chengdu - Berry Panda - He did a good job and helpful.
Guilin/Yangshou - Jenny - The best guide of the trip. Excellent with a great personality.
Chongqing - David - We were only with him for half a day, but didn't seem to interested and not overly flexible.
Shanghai - Shirley - She was OK but after reviewing the weather forecast she decided to change the tour schedule and visit the Water Town the first day when the weather was fine and clear.
We would definitely recommend China Discovery. A private tour of China allows you to visit and see the sights that we are interested in without following the same tourist path as many of the other tour companies.
Back home safely. It was a great trip over all. Here are some observations. There were so many places we visited I may have some of them mixed up.
Dorsett Hotel in Shanghai was excellent. ($75/night)Well located across from Park where we spent a nice afternoon on bike and boat, saw some weddings, and in the evening a great fireworks show for the National holiday. Our visit during the holiday period made everything more crowded, particularly traffic and attractions.
Next day we took subway to town, very clean and easy for tourists and inexpensive. Visited shopping street, Museum ( good explanation of Chinese cultural history). Dined at local restaurant.
Next day tour started. Anna was very good and informative, but rain made outdoor sights and Bund stroll poor. Liked the Museum of Shanghai history in the tower and the tea ceremony very much. Also visit to Pearl factory.
Next day good flight to Chongqing. Boarding vessel delayed till 9pm so had a very good tour of the city and museums and a nice dinner ashore. Oliver was an outstanding tour guide. Best of all of them. River cruise was great in all respects.
In Yichang Fay met us . Flight was scheduled late at night so all lot of time to fill. Yet another Museum visit and another silk embroidery shop were not very interesting but the luncheon was the best. Helga had a nice massage. Fay was a good informative guide. Arrival in Beijing our driver to the hotel arrived about 45 minutes late...we nearly hired a taxi.
The group tours in Beijing were only average. There were big crowds everywhere because of the holidays so we missed Tianamen Square and did not see as much of the Forbidden City as I had seen previously. Also the best parts of the Summer Palace were missed on the short stop there. We liked the visit to the Great Wall which was at a more distant location than on my previous visit. I have a walking problem so the Cab!e Car was helpful. More visits to a Jade factory and a Herbal Medicine pharmacy made it seem that all the tours were designed to try to sell us something. The heavy air pollution made it difficult to see much of the taller towers.
We had more fun in the last two days after the tour was over when we went to the Walking Street near the hotel, watched the line dancing on the street, ate at the nighttime food stalls and spent time meeting people and talking about how they lived. Took the subway to Summer Palace for a second and much better visit than on the tour.j
Be sure to warn foreign visitors that the weight limit on domestic flights is 20 kg while on international flights it is 23kg.
Visitors have an impression of China that is probably not realistic and I would like a tour to spend more time introducing us to what it is like to live day to day in China with a different form of Government than in the West and a different lifestyle. Thus I would have enjoyed spending a quiet day with you learning what you believe and experience as a citizen of China compared to my life. That was my tour guide offered on my previous visit many years ago.
I think I would like my children to visit China when they can afford it in time and money. ( perhaps their Inheritance from me). I hope you will try to stay in touch with them as future customers (but they may not respond).
Thanks. I hope this feedback is helpful.
We had a good trip to Guangzhou and Dongguan last week. We did not take many pictures. We are so happy to locate the old house of my Dad in Foshan which surprisingly was in a street listed for preservation by the municipal government.
We were impressed by the lady driver who was has good driving skills and is patient and kind in helping us to look for the old house in Foshan ( even though the name of the street had changed). Our guide Wang Jie had done a good job too by including extra sight seeing spots for us in Guangzhou. He was willing to go the extra mile to look for my Dad's old house in the old district.
Thanks again to you and your company for arranging this successful trip for root searching for us.
