Good morning Selina!
My week end went really well. Thank you. What about your?
Tour arrangements was great! Where else I could find travel agent bring me the permit directly. I am very really satisfied with your service. Thank you so much. Next time will be in town I will let you know.
Will send you couple of photos went back from Paris.
PS: in case you would like to travel abroad please remember to come here and you will be my host!
Thank you for organizing our trip in China; this was a great experience and we enjoyed the trip very much. My overall impression of the services provided is excellent. We had no issues with hotel reservations, flights, guides, etc.
All our guides, especially those who we had a chance to spend more time with (Guilin, Chengdu, Lijiang, Zhangjiajie) were great. Always very accommodating, punctual and attentive. The drivers were good. The hotels in the big cities (Chengdu, Chongqing, Shanghai) were excellent.
Chongqing - Dazu Rock Carvings were a great suggestion. It was a little far, but well worth the trip.The Yangtze River Cruise accommodations, cruise and tours were great. The only letdown was that we passed one of the gorges in complete darkness so could not see anything at all. I am still glad I chose this cruise and got to see the Three Lesser Gorges. Also, on the cruise we paid extra to dine at a smaller dining room and based on what we heard from other travelers, this was a good option. The tours in Chengdu were great. We did not get to see the sunrise on Mt Emei, but the night we got there, it was crystal clear and no people. It was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. Lijiang tours were great. I highly suggest Tiger Leaping Gorge for those that want a more active vacation - it's beautiful and peaceful. In Zhangjiajie we were able to visit Tianzi Mountain and Huangshi Village on the same day. We had enough time, but I suspect it was because we did not have to wait in long lines anywhere.
I also appreciate your prompt e-mails and your answers to all my questions during the entire time you were planning this trip and I appreciate you checking in with us a couple of times during our trip. It's been a pleasure working with you and I look forward using your services again some day when we visit China. I hope you find my comments useful. Please let me know if you would like me to go into more detail about any part of my trip.
Thank you and take care,
Sorry for the late reply.
We really enjoyed the China tour, unfortunately, didn't get to meet you.
The arrangements we superb, Autumn and Mike we found very pleasant and accommodating and always punctual.
As a matter of fact, we are planning another tour of China with the family and this time we will visit Guilin. Beijing and anywhere interesting in between these two cities.
Will be in contact with you when the time approaches.
Here's wishing you a prosperous and happy New Year.
This is what I wrote on TripAdvisor. "I am only addressing the organizing of a customized tour of the Hunan province of China.
I totally lucked out as I found the most astonishingly responsive, capable and so nice travel agent I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. Rita Jiang of China Discovery out of Chengdu. I sent out the same email to 3 companies who arrange custom tours to China.
I wrote them where I had been on my previous 2 trips to China, my age and my physical condition - which is excellent. I wrote I wanted to travel alone seeing the great sight of Hunan and listed a number of places I wanted included and that I wanted to spend approximately 17-19 days on this tour.
The very next day I got a fully described day by day itinerary along with hotels, type of transportation and guides and the complete price for this 15 day trip. Rita made suggestions as to what other sights I might want to include to bring the trip up to 19 days. I looked up all the places she described on line as well as the 5 star hotels she included.
I wrote back that evening asking how much I would save staying in 4 star hotels, and information on including the places she recommended seeing outside of Hunan. Next day again got all the details including travel arrangements getting there. Next I asked her to arrange my domestic and international air as well. Again the next day an email from Rita with the Domestic flights & their costs. She urged me to get my own International flights she said I'd do better with the price than she could arrange.
I then asked she detail the length of getting from one sight to the next for each day. Again next day all info furnished. When I saw that the train travel involved in seeing those sights outside of Hunan were 14 & another 21 hours long and they involved sharing a 4 person sleeping compartment, I wrote back saying I would skip those sights and just go to Shanghai & stay there for 3 days. Would she please inform me what the new price would be. The only time I did not hear the next day is over a weekend. Her responses were unfailingly complete very friendly and I am looking forward to the trip of a lifetime.
Re the other 2 companies I had sent the original email request - one wrote back about 4 days later and said they were trying to get information from their Chinese vendor. Never heard from them again. The other sent me a totally incomplete itinerary about a week after I sent out my request. It came without no hotels, no prices or info on transportation etc. I wrote back saying I found their response was inadequate. They said I needed to supply more details.
As I said I feel I completely lucked out. My next post will be to let you know if the trip measures up to the marvelous agent who has put it all together."
NYC is very grey today but my windows face Central Park and the leaves of the trees are very colorful.
I am going to give you a great write up on Trip Advisor as I think you are the best travel agent I have ever dealt with. And dealing with you has been a pleasure.
I have such an amazing trip to look forward to.
Sorry for late reply as in tough schedule in work and preparation for our Christmas and New Year trip back to Australia (also visit some universities for my daughter’s study).
Beside the exceptional excellent sunny weather and fresh air in Beijing during our visit, we are very happy with your coordination and tour arrangements. You are prompt with courtesy and detail-minded. We have no worry on the trip and save lots of time as no need for self-preparing and concern in traffic condition; you guys did it for us. Also we are impressed with your good English writing/communications standard. The tour guide and driver provided excellent services and always planned ahead and made good alteration to the schedule in order to cope with the special condition due to APEC.
We plan to visit Panda in Chengdu and Xian for scenery in future and surely would take your service again.

I have written feedback about my trip with China Discovery, but when I submitted it they want me to put too many information about me to join TripAdvisor. Here is what I have written:
My wife and I took a 6
day trip private starting at the Wulingyuan National Park and ending at the
ancient town of Fenghuang. The tour was arranged by China Discovery. It was a
great trip: well arranged and managed, excellent local guide who is a native of
the area and spoke good English. We are glad to have Wonder Wang of China
Discovery managed our trip. We are already planning our next trip (to Guangxi)
with Wonder. We have used other China-based travel agencies arranged our
previous trips and this one is one of the best. I highly recommend China
Wonder, thank you for the excellent job!
I am very happy with your services and with the trip.
The experience in Guilin and Yangshuo was enjoyable, affordable, professional, and well organized. The guides and drivers were always prompt and friendly for pick-up and drop off at attractions. Guides imparted knowledge of attractions and history of sites. You are good value travel agency/tour operator.
I look forward to another trip to China perhaps within the year and will contact you for your services.
