Sorry it has taken so long to reply but my email has been blocked and I could not open any files. I had a great time in Tibet and the guide Tassi (You said Zhaki but I think that is the Chinese spelling and no one here understood that!) was great, very helpful. A great tour.

Many thanks for organising a wonderful holiday. All the guides were kind and friendly especially Lingzy in Beijing, David in Lhasa, Yuti in Chongqing and Zhou Fei in Yichang. Tours and activities were well organised. Flights went fine and hotels were good although wifi was terrible in all places.
Airport collection and drop off at Lhasa should be better and it would have been helpful if you had emailed Airport Hotel in Beijing with Chinese characters.
Dear Riley Guo,
Thank you for your message and sorry for my late reply. Empty cell phone and holiday spirit..
Yes, we have made it to Kathmandu. We had a really good time in Tibet together with our super-guide Dhorye (I hope I spell his name right)
Also walking the border at Girong went really well. Someone from the company guided us to our driver in Nepal and also through customs and immigration.
So far all went really well - thank you for your good service!
I will contact you again next week, when we are back in Amsterdam, and send you a more detailed mail with some nice pictures.
Check the answers to your questions:
1. Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions? – Yes. Very prompt indeed.
2. How do you comment your tour arrangements? – Excellent with one exception.
The D312 overnight train has recently been replaced with newer carriages. This means that there are no longer Soft Sleeper compartments. This meant that we had Hard Sleeper berths which were very uncomfortable. Also the rail tracks are not always of good quality resulting in a very bumpy and noisy ride between 2:30am and 3:30am. However we fully appreciate that this was totally beyond your control. On the positive side, we greatly appreciated being right at the back of the train with one empty berth so that we were not disturbed unduly by other passengers.
The G25 high speed train, on the other hand was very comfortable and we very much appreciated being right at the front of the carriage so were in a good location.
The domestic flight HU7841 was also good as was our seating allocation.
All three hotels were first class and very conveniently located.
The tour guides and drivers were also very good, looked after us very well and we greatly appreciated the information given to us by Kai and Darcy. The historical information that Kai gave us in Beijing made our entire visit to China much more interesting and enjoyable. Mr Wang is an excellent driver.
3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China? – Yes. Definitely.
4. Your general opinion on us? – If we return to China, we would definitely choose to arrange it with China Discovery.
5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services? – The China Tea Ceremony was more of a tea tasting so was a bit disappointing. The other visits were great. Apart from that we can’t think of anything else.
6. Can we use your comments of our service, the photos or other images that you took on the tour for our websites, brochures, marketing and publicity? If yes, could you please send us some of your photos by E-mail? – Yes. You may.
We sometimes have requests from potential customers who would like to inquire from or our ex-customers.
May they contact you for advices? – Certainly.

Jack met us at Luoyang Train station. He was friendly and very professional. His knowledge of Chinese history was extensive and interesting. He suggested places to eat near to the hotel which was The hotel was good and comfortable.
Jack dropped us at the station with directions for getting through security and which gate to go to. Gin met us at Xian. She was also friendly and professional (it was nice to have a female guide too!). She explained the history of Xian and was very attentive to our needs. She too told us where we could get dinner. The hotel was a little disappointing, the shared room was small and the breakfast food was cold. However, it was in an excellent location. Gin to us to the training station and entered with us to make sure we knew which gate to take.

All in all, we had a very enjoyable time and I would definitely look at further tours with your company and recommend you to others. We really liked China, the people were friendly, the scenery stunning, and the arts and crafts were amazing, as is your history.
Yesterday's tour was good. Ge Sang is very knowledgeable and patient with my questions. He made sure we didn't walk too fast and adjusted to the altitude. Carey has a bad head cold and Ge Sang helped him find medicines. We lunched at a small Tibetan cafe and the food was good.
The driver and car was good.
Hotel is fine, with plenty of hot water and warmth. Being in the old city makes it handy to explore the area.
