It is DONE!
Thank you for all your help. Here is what I wrote:
Awesome! China Discovery, mostly our rep Vivien Li, did an amazing job setting up our tour for our trip to Beijing. Ms Vivien was responsive, helpful and easily answered all our questions. The hotel was great...very nice. Tours and private guide made the city come alive. My only change would be to make the Great Wall a full day...do NOT try to do it in an afternoon.
The cruise was nice. Beautiful scenery. Good boat, good staff, OK food. We were a bit disappointed by the proposed excursions (the one included in the package and the one we had to pay. Not very interesting).
Anyway thanks a lot for your help
What a wonderful trip! I have been singing the praises of China Discovery and Riley Guo all over the place! Thank you for your excellent planning. All the details were worked out so well that it made the trip stress-free for us. The local guides and drivers were all excellent. A couple of them really stand out: Bailey in Shanghai went way beyond the requirements and did an extra special job researching the places that were part of my family’s history, and she suggested a couple of others as well. She and her driver worked long hours – she was determined that we would see everything, and we did! And Timo and Mrs. Lio were so caring and considerate in Xian. We couldn’t have asked for more. All the teams (Shanghai, Yantai, Tianjin, Beijing, Xian, Chongqing, Yichang and Shanghai) were very knowledgeable about the sites in their locations and most helpful in helping us make connections and get settled in our lodgings. We feel we saw some of the most important sites in China, were able to revisit family history; and learned many new things from our knowledgeable guides.
Regarding the refund of the train ticket, is there a way we could get the funds sent to Bailey (RMB 500 and her driver 288)? I learned later that I was not tipping what seemed to be the practice of 200 RMB a day for the guide and 100 RMB for the driver). They were so good I would like to get the additional funds to them.
Many thanks for everything, Riley, you did so many nice things for us and we will always appreciate how you made this such a memorable trip.

Answers to your questions:
My tour arrangements were handled very well. Your help in making my schedule fit the tour worked perfectly. We were able to see Xiam and Chengdu at a good pace and not feel rushed. We arrived back in perfect time to board our cruise ship in Shanghai.
2. Are you willing to recommend our service to those who would like to come to China ?
I would be willing to serve as a reference for anyone considering using your services.
3. Your general opinion on us?
I was pleased and very satisfied.
4. What will be your suggestions regarding how to improve our services?
5. Do you plan to write (or have already written) a travelogue or a story to share with your friends? Would you like to share it with us and our clients? We would be happy to publish it on our website. Photos often tell more than words and we would appreciate if you share some of them with us.
I normally do a photo book travelogue, but I am very far behind. It may be several years before the China trip is ready for sharing.Frankly, our company can also provide online the whole China travel services, I hope we have chance to serve you again!
I will certainly be in touch when our plans call for another visit to China. We were pleased with your services.
Thank you very much.
Many thanks, Zoe.
I waited to reply to your last two emails until I had finished the cruise.
I had a great visit in Chongqing with Liao Jun who was an excellent friendly guide. I’m so glad you recommend Wulong and Da Zu which were different but very worthwhile visits.
The Yangtze trip went very well and I managed to do the Ship Lift this morning even though the Yangtze Explorer cancelled their proposed trip. I managed to persuade them to let 3 of us do it alone and then caught a taxi to the Banshan hotel.
Thank you for your consideration in calling the hotel to assist with arranging a taxi to the airport. I plan to leave the hotel around 8 o’clock as my flight departs at 10:25.
When I said my wife will like the Panda tea set I meant we would share it. We have tea first thing every morning and late afternoon, so it will get much use.
Thank you again for assisting me with my visit which has been most interesting and informative. I have recommended your services to other travellers. Could I ask which company do you work for or are you independent? I notice you have more than one e-mail address.
Sorry that it took me a while to answer you. The cruise is great and we are having a great time. Thanks for your excellent work. Be happy.
Clients are very happy with the services provided by you. Hotels, Guides, vehicles, assistance all were good
Thank you very much for providing excellent service.
We will get back to you shortly with another group enquiry.
We are back in Shanghai now. Thank you so much for all of your help with our trip. We had a perfect weekend! Once we go through all of our photos we can send you some highlights :)
