Hello Lyn !

I returned to Canada just yesterday after a wonderful 3 week journey through China and Mongolia.

I must say that the highlight of the whole trip was the 4-day-3-night cruise down the Yangtze !  The 'Century Sun' is a very modern cruise ship that provides an excellent level of service and comfort for a relatively modest cost.  There was a good mix of western travelers, tour groups and Chinese passengers on board the ship so it was also a very good 'multi-cultural' travel experience as well.  All the officers and crew on the ship worked very hard to make sure that every passenger enjoyed their 4 days on the Yangtse: the cabins were extremely comfortable and well appointed, the ship was kept spotlessly clean, the buffet meals were really exceptional and the shore excursions and side-trips only added to the overall excellence of the cruise.  It was an outstanding travel experience and I would have no hesitation in recommending you, Tibet Discovery or Yangtse-River-Cruises to anyone.

It was unfortunate that my original plan to travel to Tibet had to be cancelled but the cruise down the Yangtse more than made up for that initial disappointment. 

I would like to record my appreciation for the very efficient and professional manner in which (you) have handled all aspects of my booking and ticketing.  You are a fine ambassador for your company and deserve every credit for providing a first-class level of service and complete customer satisfaction.  I am very grateful. 

With all good wishes

Dear Vivien,

Thank you for your email.

We had the most wonderful time on board Century Sky, in fact it was my favourite part of our tour. Everything about the cruise was just brilliant and the cruise staff were superb.

However, I must also thank you for helping me arrange the cruise and all the extra information you gave us before travelling to China. It was a little daunting planning the trip ourselves but with your help made it so much easier and for that we can’t thank you enough.

With kind regards,

Hi Lyn,

The tour went very well but I am still in China.  (Visiting my son in Guangzhou). We will be going to Guilin for four days and I might not be able to use my gmail account.  I would prefer to go through pictures after I get home anyway.  All our guides were very good and I could only say good things about all of them. 

I will forward pictures in about two weeks.

Dear Lyn,

On behalf of Natasha, Namita, Lata and myself, I want to thank you and your team for giving us such a wondrful trip of your country, The arrangements were very good, the guides were very helpful. Emily and Linda are outstanding, please extend our thanks and compliments to them.They were both knowledgeable and very helpful.

Timo is extremely good too and his English is the best of the four . Michelle was also very helpful and sincere  though her English is a little limited.The only improvement could be the quality and variety of the vegetarian food - howevere,, I know this is difficult and appreciate the care you took..

Overall, everyone including the drivers was very kind and helpful.

Thank you for your help and cooperation, Lyn.

Xie xie!

Best wishes

Hi Rita,

Of course I will give a note to Tripadvisor. Both for your company and for your very good service. I have already told several people back home about your company, and I think at least one couple are planning to visit China next year. We are going to invite them for dinner, and then we will tell about our experience, and about your company. I just wondered why is it important not to mention your company’s website or email address? I thought that could be good...

One thing I want to tell you is that it is very important that the guides can speak good English. Most of the guides did speak very fine English, especially good in Chengdu. Both Jessie and David were doing very good in explanation and in speaking English, and the same for nearly all the other guides. But it was a bit harder in Beijing with Cici. She was a wonderful person, but her English was not that good. We struggled a bit for understanding what she was telling. I’m telling this to you now because I want to advise you to not only trust the evaluation form given by the guide herself. It might be difficult for the guest to give negative feedback in front of the same person. So evaluation related to the guide should be asked for in a mail like this. That is my opinion anyway.

As tourist we are very different, I can imagine. Some people like this and others like something else. For us we will rate Guilin as the most spectacular place and Shanghai as the city with lowest interest. We loved the stay in Guilin, and we would advise tourists to spend as many days there as we had. Not less. Shanghai was mostly concrete and steel, buildings and modern city. But of course also gardens and temples. Maria did a very good job there.

And I liked to visit you and your company in Chengdu. It was nice. I love to meet people more than watching buildings and temples. And you confirmed that you were just as nice and clever as my first impression after mailing with you. And thanks for the gifts. I will definitely wear the tie. I’m enclosing some pictures. Hope you like them. And you can use our name and mail if you need someone to be a reference for you or your company.

Hope to see you again, one day. Take care.

Best from Rune
