We are finally recovered from jet lag and back to our normal routine! Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! We loved every minute of it and all your plans worked smoothly and beautifully. China is a wonderful country to visit and we are pleased with the choices we made in the locations we went to. Our drivers and guides were all wonderful, personable, knowledgeable, and attentive. But we feel the need to mention Kevin (Guilin), specifically, as a guide who went above and beyond our expectations. He was a delight! Truly enjoyable.
Thank you also for the gifts you sent to us via Jenna and Alicia. They enjoyed meeting you. Gary and I are disappointed that we were not able to meet you but maybe on a future trip we will be able to do so!
We will not hesitate to contact you again for any future trips we plan to China. China is a very big country and there is a lot more for us to see! We will gladly recommend your services to any of our friends who may think about a trip of their own.

Hello again Judy,
I forgot to mention in my last note about how much we enjoyed the Red Wall Garden Hotel. All of our accommodations on the trip were good but the Red Wall Garden was exceptional. It was quiet, peaceful, and charming with its old-world feel. As it was tucked away in a hutong it was certainly difficult for taxi drivers to find! But that is part of what made it so special; an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. Morning coffee in the court yard was such a pleasure and breakfast was always delicious. The staff was so gracious, friendly, and helpful. We will definitely want to stay there when we return to Beijing someday. Move this hotel to the top of your list when recommending a hotel in Beijing to your future clients!

We are now in Foshan with Nicko. We had an amazing trip and we both wish to thank you and your team so very much. The quality of Professional Service offered by all the guides is excellent. We both felt cared for and extremely safe and amongst friends. I would most definitely recommend China Discovery to all my friends. The amount and breadth of knowledge the guides have is amazing.
I can’t thank you enough.
I hope to send some photos to you when I get back home and have better internet. Thanks again.
Create a great day & enjoy it
I've recommended you to a friend who is dealing with someone in South Africa and is looking for a reliable travel agent in China. I also intend to refer another friend of mine from Shanghai to you as he wants to do some travel in China with his family. I'll make sure he mentions me when he contacts you.
Thank you so much for planning such a lovely itinerary. Tom He was a fantastic guide. He was so knowledgable and easy to get along with. I learned so much from him. He was also incredibly flexible and tailored the tour to my interests. You are lucky to have such a great guide working for your company.
All the best,
Our itinerary was to fly from Hong Kong to Chengdu where we would be met at the airport by our guide (Tom) and driver (Mr. Den). From there we were taken to our hotel. As soon as we got into our transport Tom presented my wife with a huge bouquet of flowers and basket of fruit which I thought was a lovely touch and completely unexpected.
The next morning we set off bright and early to begin time with the giant pandas....We had been told that it would be a "Once in a lifetime experience" and it certainly lived up to it's billing. Normally you would be straining to get a view of these wonderful animals but here we were within touching distance. The work itself was quite physical (lots of sweeping and cleaning is involved when mucking out pandas) The staff at the sanctuary don't speak much English but, Tom, who was excellent throughout, was always on hand to assist with translations. Our supervisors seemed impressed that we were both happy to get our hands dirty for the privilege of being so close to the animals. Our duties in the sanctuary included cleaning the pandas enclosures and sleeping accommodation and also helping to feed them. We were also advised that we might be asked to help with other tasks that might crop up during our time there...In our case I was asked to assist with some heavy lifting to assist in transporting one panda from Bifeng to another sanctuary.
At the Bifeng Sanctuary visitors can have photos taken with young pandas which costs £100. They can also interact (play) with young pandas which costs £200 for a few minutes....We were told that the reason why this is so expensive is because although they want the money (it all goes towards the costs of running the sanctuary)....They don't want to encourage too much interaction between humans and the young pandas which one day they might be able to release into the wild....I can understand this and we decided not pay the extra....We were more than delighted with the level of contact we had already experienced.
Our adventure lasted four days...Two days travelling to and from Hong Kong and two days at the sanctuary....We both rated it as a fantastic adventure with good food and accommodation. As regards the organisation...I can't really fault it....Everything was as described and the trip ran like clockwork....On the basis of this trip I would have no hesitation in recommending China Discovery Tours to anyone travelling in that area and if we ever return, I would certainly use them again.
Happy Journey in Beijing
