Hi, Wonder.

Ok, my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise - we upgraded the room which we thot was very good and very well maintained. Even the bath towels are of good quality!

Special mention to our guide Lawrence from the ship - he was assigned to assist us since he could speak English - he was very good and made sure we understood the detailed itinerary. We’re very glad that he was there to help us all along the trip!

We think the pace of the tours were good, and the processes and organisation for embarkation etc were very well thought out, planned and executed. We also enjoyed the narration when the ship cruised through the gorges, I think it was also Lawrence who read out the English descriptions of the cruise and the features that we were passing.

If there was one complaint, perhaps it was that there are not enough lifts in the ship and they didn’t go to the top floor. I think this is especially for older tourists like me!

Thanks, I will certainly recommend your services to my friends and relatives.

Hi Rita,

Thank you for your kind assistance in organising the private tour for my group.

Firstly, I must said you are very responsible and trustworthy. As this was the first time we got China Discovery to arrange the above tour,

Highly Recommended for your reliability and the excellent service provided.

It was unfortunate that our trip coincided with China May Day holiday as most places of interests were crowded.

My personal opinion, the program could have been better spaced out especially for seniors.

The train from Chongqing to Xian arrived almost at midnight and we reached hotel about 1am. The departure from hotel to see the Terracotta the next morning was 06:30am. Too tight, we barely had 4hrs of sleep. It would be better if the visit to the Terracotta is in late morning or early afternoon. Unfortunately, my wife and I were unable to join the visit to see the terracotta as we find it very tiring after the long train journey from Chongqing. Had to give it a miss.

However, we did enjoy the Beijing tour very much especially with your guide Mr Jackson Liu. He was very cheerful and knowledgeable. Also very helpful.

Overall it was a very enjoyable trip and will definitely recommend my friends to seek your assistance if they are planning a China trip, My wife and myself will definitely engage your services in the near future for our next China tour.

Thank you again.

Hello Rita,

the cruise was wonderful and perfectly organized. The best things were:

- perfect organization,

- nice Amie, who made me feel welcome,

- very good food; there were enough healthy things for me f.e. salad, fruits, vegetables,

- cappuccino in the bar

- perfect organized (optional) tours

There are some things I would change if I were you:

- Cappuccino should be included and available for breakfast ( I had to ask twice and then they brought it (for € 5, what is very expensive; the other days I went to the bar myself);

- my neighbours (cabin 408) were strong smokers and were smoking on the balcony all the time. The smoke came over to me (when the boat moves), so I couldnt sit on the balcony. Non-smoking should mean, that it is not for smokers. In Germany smoking is out and the people think very much about health. Moreover they were talking at 4.30 h, so I couldnt sleep anymore.

- the announcements in the cabin are annoying. I dont need it. The schedule is enough. I asked them to turn off the announcements and they did :-)

So, it was a wonderful experience and everything worked well.

In respect to the questions you asked me to respond, I would say :

a/ All the drivers were good. The vans (Toyota ?) were a little old. But the Van (new Chinese made) that took us to the Airport the last day before we left was very good and new.

b/ The Tour-guides, they are all very friendly and helpful. David's English can be better. Fiona was excellent .

c/ The hotel in Beijing and Chongqing can be a little bit better. Grand Hyatt at Chengdu was good and excellent location.

Overall it was a great trip for us. We like to thank you for your good works.

Hi Jack,

Sorry for this late reply. I had a very busy day today running errands here and there, so many things to attend to after my return from China!

The Dazu tour was great! David was a great English speaking guide and he took care to go through with us the history of Dazu Rock & The Beishan Carvings. He was very knowledgeable, nice and friendly. Then he took us to a nearby Restaurant for our lunch, the food was good and the price was reasonable. Unfortunately we couldn't converse much with the driver as he can't speak english and our Chinese was quite limited but he was very pleasant and nice. The car was nice, clean and comfortable. All in all, we had a great day!

Oh, we enjoyed the Yangtze Cruise too ... there were a lot of activities to do on board if we chose not to join in the excursions. 4 days 3 nights just flew by so fast, which meant, we had a great time. The Officers and Staff on board the cruise were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, which made our stay very nice and comfortable.

The transfer from Yichang Three Gorges Dam Centre to Yichang East Railway Station went smoothly and without any problem. With the help of the Cruise Manager Allan and Vivian from your side, we were able to finalise the final details of the transfer. We arrived at the Yichang East Railway Station at about 13:30, with plenty of time to spare before our train left for Chongqing at 14:45.

As for the train tickets, thank you very much for your patience and your time in getting us the train tickets back to Chongqing on the 30 April, at no extra costs. It was a very great relief when we heard that!

All in all, we were very happy with your services! Both you and Jason were very professional and were there to help us with our itinerary along the way and everything went well as planned. I would definitely be in touch again when I plan my next trip to China.

Thank you again and may you have a great day!

If we really want to nitpick, maybe the hotel better be a newer building like hampton. Wanyou building is a bit too old and not so well cleaned (for dust). And I regret not staying in Chengdu for 1 free day.

She adapted quickly and changed the plans according to our needs, which was really nice. She was a great guide with lots of knowledge, good English and she even took care of Ruby some times.

o Hotel: The Pullman, breakfast was ok not really good and as there were a lot of Chinese groups it was crowded. Room was ok but a bit outdated. The baby bed was not good, it was for really small babies (who cannot walk or stand) and one wheel was broken. We adapted it and it was ok for the 2 nights.

o Attractions: These two days were amazing, the glass bridge and the river tour was nice even the walk along the river was great. The national park (with avatar mountains) on second day was also really cool and Lilly also guided us through less crowded places. We were quite tired in the end but it was really worth it.

o Restaurants: Both were fine, we liked the second one better. The first one all dishes were cooked with lots of Oil. And actually for us it was way too much food. but maybe other people eat more.

o Car and Driver: Both were good and nice

Feedback for Chongqing

o Guide: Jim was always a bit stressful and hectic. His English was good. We think he really tried hard to satisfy us, but for us it sometimes felt too much, on the first night he arranged a hotpot for us which was great.

o Attractions: Houses in the Hill at the riverfront is really nice and actually I think lots of people would enjoy to walk down the stairs instead of taking the elevator. It would be nice to spend a little more time there and let people wander around. Monorail inside the building we think is ok to see but not really special, could maybe be skipped depending on the group speed. Old town was really nice, I think western people would enjoy to wander around, try food and drinks or buy souvenirs and not just rush through it. Museum is nice to hear and see something about the culture, but as this was our last stop in the city we were tired and had enough after the first floor with the information about the 3 Georges. We asked Jim if we can go to the boat now and he agreed which was great for us.

o Car and Driver: both were good

Feedback for Yangtze River Cruise

We spend a nice time on the boat, the food was good and the rooms were nice. First they just prepared a foldable chair for Ruby as bed, but after we asked for a real baby bed they put one in our room. That was great.

o Trips general: for us it was great that there were mostly two trips a day one in the morning and one in the afternoon. So Ruby was able to do her nap in the room. The service staff on the boat was great too, they always helped and suggested us if we should go on the additional trip or if it is better for us to walk around on our own.

o First day trip morning: We actually left the guide at the temple because the speed was also not suitable for us. And obviously the other part of the group was quicker than us with Ruby. But it was fine for us like this. We were able to look at all the things in our speed.

o First day trip evening (optional): We didn´t go to the show, because Ruby goes to bed around 7:30pm and someone had to stay with her. But we enjoyed the dinner and drinks and music in the bar.

o Second Day morning (optional): White Emperor city was not recommended to us, so we didn´t participate. We still left the boat and just walked around the harbor, there was also and old city wall and a white tower, which was nice to explore for 1-2 hours. Then we went back on the boat

o Second Day afternoon Boat trip: that was really nice and great to see. Ruby also enjoyed the ride a lot. The tour guide spoke great English.

o Third Day: Checkout, it was a bit surprising that we should give all our big luggage’s already the evening before we left the boat to the boat staff. Which was not possible for us, with having a kid. You have to pack in the morning. But we managed to keep one and give the other one already to the boat staff. Another surprise was that the room cards didn´t work after the breakfast on the last days, they just locked everyone out, so you had to get a staff member to open the door again. Would be nice to inform the people about it or have the room cards work at least until the time when everyone should leave the boat. least

- Dam: It is for sure impressive why they build it and to get to know some information about height and relocation of cities just for this. But to get to the top and walking around there was not really nice, way to many people, it felt like all ships had the same timing so it was super crowded. I think I would maybe skip that but also because we have a small kid and it was a bit overwhelming for her with all the people.

- Guide: Nancy spoke very good English. She was nice but not as friendly and helpful as Lilly

- Restaurant: Good and nice food. But we had to pay for water, but two bottles of beer were included. Which is a bit strange, as we were 4 people and especially one pregnant woman and a kid.

- Attraction: Cave and path around half island, that was nice to see and the good part was most of it was shady.

- Car: it was a fancy car, but too small to fit our luggage (4 Suitcases and a stroller) we had no issues with the other cars. So it was a bit uncomfortable to sit, as one luggage and the stroller had to fit in the area we were sitting

- Driver: Nice and friendly

- If there would have been a flight in the afternoon or earlier in the evening around 6pm that would have been better for us. So it was a really long day.

Whole trip: it was very nice and we would do it again, maybe with some small adaptions. Thanks for organizing it we took a lot of great pictures and created some really nice memories.

Best regards,

Dear Wonder,

Thank you so much for your assistance with our recent trip to Harbin! Please see our written feedback below:

Our family had the pleasure of working with Mr. Wonder, who assisted us in a trip to Harbin from Dec.26-29, 2022. Mr. Wonder helped generate an attractive itinerary the same day we requested and even made alterations to it so that it aligned with our requests.

Having never traveled to NE China before, Mr. Wonder made sure we had lots to do and explore during our 3 nights-2 days trip. It was the perfect amount of time to explore a variety of activities with our young family, including the following: Central Street, a traditional Harbin lunch, Songhua Ice Activities, Sun Island Ice Sculptures, Cable Car over the Songhua River, and last but not least, the Ice and Snow World! Due to the pandemic, there were a couple attractions that were closed, including the Volga Manor and Siberian Tiger Park, but Mr. Wonder made sure we had plenty to do and advised us as to what alternative activities could fill our time and be just as meaningful.

Throughout our initial booking, travel experience, and arrival back home, Mr. Wonder was consistently available and responsive to any questions or requests that we had and always gave timely responses. We look forward to working with him again in the near future as he helps us explore the many sites and wonders of China.

Hi Tracy:

Here is my evaluation of the cruise on Century Glory:

Ship and facilities: Overall I was impressed with the design. Unlike almost all of the other Yangtze cruise ships, the interiors are clean and modern, reflecting a fusion of modern Chinese and European aesthetics. The different coloured carpets on each floor were a nice touch. Overall, the ship has modern, but warm, feel to it with well-thought-out spaces such as the Panorama Cafe at the front of the ship, which had full-height wrap-around glass walls and an inviting open deck at the font of the ship which is protected by high glass walls. The open spaces at the top and rear of the ship are also notable. Unlike other ships on the river, the Century Glory was designed to maximize open spaces with generous and comfortable seating. Even when it was raining, the large outdoor sofas (note these are not cheap plastic white chairs, but rather quite comfortable rattan-style sofas with fabric cushions) on the Sun Deck could still be used thanks to the canopies that covered the deck. The VIP Panorama restaurant offered an impressive array of local Chinese and Western dishes of high quality, with various seating options and floor-to-ceiling windows offering excellent scenic views. The cabin, on Deck 6, was quite large and the bathroom had two sinks, which is unusual even on ocean-going cruise ships. Bedding, excellent.

Service: I had no problems with the service, in fact, it was far better than I had expected. As one of 20 foreigners on the ship (out of 500), we were well taken care of and all senior staff knew our names. Although I speak Chinese, English was widely spoken amongst the senior hotel staff of the ship. The Cruise Director had previously worked for Royal Caribbean, and it was evident that the high attention to guest relations--which that company is known for--was something he brought back to Century Cruise Lines. Any problem was solved very quickly.

Shore excursions: I am not a person who does many shore excursions, but the ones I did do were well-organized and efficient. The guides spoke good English and had deep historical knowledge of the sites. Embarkation/disembarkation was smooth.

Overall I would rate the experience on the ship as excellent. I have been on many ocean cruises before, and Century Glory certainly ranks near the top in terms of service, comfort and attention to detail. I highly recommend it.

My only suggestion would be that there be some sort of room service menu available, so you can order food to your cabin in case you don't feel like going to the restaurant or are hungry between meals.

Tracy - do you think you could send me an e-fapiao for the trip? Thanks!

Hi Johnson,

Our five families had a superb trip! The incredible sites we visited such as the 'Great wall' and the 'Terracotta warriors' will stay in our memories forever! Our guides took us to some superb restaurants where we really enjoyed the local food. The Peking duck for me was a favourite. Your organization and that of our local guides was excellent! Our guides knowledge of the places we visited was in-depth and really added to the interest in what we were seeing. I will highly recommend your tour to other teachers at my school and friends and family back in New Zealand.

Things to improve upon:

I think when travelling with younger children we found it's better sometimes to do 1 or 2 things a day rather than try and fit everything in on the itinerary especially when it was hot and there was lot's of walking to do. I think the guides were good at realizing this and were flexible when there were things we cut out of the daily itinerary. Having a pool at the end of the day was great for tired kids.

Perhaps next time with families try and have them stay not underneath the bar on the boat as it got a bit noisy. Although the people on the boat were really good when we said something about this on the first night. We also thought there could have been a bit more for children to do on the boat and we put that in our comments at the end of the trip.

That's all I can really think of as there was not really anything wrong with the trip. Thanks again Johnson, let me know if you want me to add any more detail in recommending the trip to others.

Regards.

The even arranged for a private rout guide for the two of us at one of the sites.

I don't know about the other cruise companies, but the staff on the Victoria Sabrina speak very good to fluent English, which made it very easy for us.

I have also attached a copy of the survey you requested.

Hello Tracy!

Thank you for the good arrangement on our trip.

Let see your questions:

  • Guide (Chongqing and Yichang):
    • The guides was good and hade good knowledge about the subject/area.
    • The food was really good (Lunch).
  • Cruise.
    • The ship standard ok.
    • The included restaurant to crowded and the food was “little too much Chines”.
      • But this was easy solved, we upgrade to the “wester restaurant” to get our own table and less people.
      • I think you shall recommend western people to go for that from the beginning
    • The included sighting was good and the guides was good, had good knowledge about the subject/area.
    • Over all good cruise.
  • Hotels.
    • Both hotels really good standard.
    • Good location on both hotels.

Overall we are really satisfied with the trip you have arranged for us also this time.

It’s so convenient when you have arranged the trip with pic up from air port and deliver to the next destination with some interesting things to look on between.

So now the big question is where to go next time?

I have at least one more year in China (hopefully more)

Hi Riley,

Great, you guys run a great operation Riley. I am very impressed with the Bamboo company and how long has the company been around? A long time right?

Steven in Guilin was reliable and gave great information and insight about the history of the place and the tourist attractions. I feel like they were there to help me and very kind. The driver was also kind and I like the 7-passenger vans.

Sandy in Chengdu was just as helpful and kind, awesome and knew a lot about the area as well. Gave a ton of information and the driver was helpful too. more driving there in Chengdu for sure. That giant Buddha is massive and so amazing. crazy that humans actually built that, doesn't seem possible, they were so clever with building it.

Hi! Yanny, I am fine. My family is also fine. Glad to hear from you. I hope everything is fine with you and your family.

Thanks for the sharing of the information on the prevention of Covid-19 virus. It is definitely good information to follow. I am glad to know China is able to control the spread of Covid-19 and things are getting better day by day. Many other countries are facing challenging time include Malaysia where the number of new cases are increasing quickly daily. My government has to impose Movement Restriction Order (a bit like the lockdown in China but people still able to go out to buy things during the day but police have road blocks every where to check) to control the spread which I believe is the right thing to do. I look forward to the day where nobody will be infected by this virus and hopefully the vaccine will be make available soon so we can get protection from this virus.

Hopefully in a few more months’ time, the Covid-19 will be a thing of the past and we can travel again and definitely I will go to China again as it has so many nice places to visit.

If you do come to Kuala Lumpur, please let me know and I will be most happy to meet up.

Take care and stay healthy.

Hi Yanny,

Thank you for your email and for having taken the trouble to prepare the very useful advice note to share what you have learnt in dealing with the virus in China.

It has now spread around the world and in the UK we are just about to start to experience the worst of it as the numbers infected are beginning to rise dramatically. It seems the whole of Europe and much of the rest of the world is going into lock down with borders being closed and curfews against people gathering together being imposed. Here in the UK, all schools are to be shut from tomorrow and summer examinations cancelled, all sporting events, music and theatre shows etc. have been cancelled, travel is restricted, everyone is being asked to work from home wherever possible, airlines are grounding most of their planes and every person over 70 years old is about to be told to go into total isolation for at least the next 12 weeks.  Our hospitals and health service have cancelled all non-emergency procedures and engineering companies are being asked to change their production and to immediately start manufacturing oxygen ventilators for the hospitals as fast as possible. We have never seen anything like this before but when something like this happens, it shows that it doesn’t matter what country we are from as we are all just citizens of the world.

It is very encouraging to see that China now seems to be over the worst and is slowly getting back to normal. My daughter Sarah is still in Shanghai having spent most of the last 8 weeks in isolation in her apartment, so she is very happy that things are getting better in China. But she will now have the problem of how to get home to the UK as her contract and work visa will expire soon.

I hope you and your family and colleagues have all survived unscathed and your life and business will soon get back to normal.

Thank you so much for your consideration for our well-being. 

We are glad to hear, and very reassured, that you are well and that life is starting to return to normal. It gives us hope, when we are at the early stages, that we can get through this. My partner and I are retired so it is not difficult for us to stay at home and we are well just now. But it is more difficult for people who are losing jobs and are struggling financially.

Thank you for the information. China has learnt so much and it helps to share information. We are following the guidance to prevent transmission and can only hope that everyone else is, too. So far there are only a few known cases in Scotland. Most are in London but I expect that will change over the coming days.

Keep well and safe and thanks again for your kind consideration.

Many thanks for organising the tour for us. Even though we have not ended the tour, i would like to provide feedback.

1. Thank you Catherine for being so prompt in the reply and your excellent organisation and planning. You are also very patient and accommodating towards the many requests and incessant enquiries from all of us.

2. Pick up and transfers at each destinations has been very prompt and smooth. There was never a time when we have to wait for the tour guides and this is very commendable.

3. At YiChang, i must commend Faye for her fast response. She has been very impressive and quick witted to get the tickets changed when my husband's passport was the wrong one. I must apologise for not checking that he has a new passport. Pls help me extend my most heartfelt thanks to Faye because it was too rush then.

4. Zhangjiajie's tour guide Wendy and driver Tang has been very accomodating towards the group's demands. She has been extremely patient with all of us , making our trip so peaceful. She also went beyond her duties to bring some of the members to the hair salon and shopping and kept us company till very late at night.

She has been very thoughtful in all her little actions, including packing our breakfast when we were catching an early flight.

She was able to integrate very quickly into the group and at the same time be quick to make all arrangements n command our attention. 

Her knowledge of Zhangjiajie has helped us to understand the locals, the cultures and she is also creative to describe the different caves n peaks in the mountains so that enjoying the scenery became even more menaningful.

We are enjoying ourselves and hope that the last part of our tour will help us bring back great memories of China.

I would thoroughly recommend this trip to my friends.

The only problem we had (and this is not your fault) was that the taxi from our hotel to the dock dropped us a long way from pier 5 and we had to pay Y100 to the porter to have our bags carried.  Perhaps in the future you could explain exactly how to get to pier 5.

We had a lovely time on the Yangtze River, especially in viewing the three gorges and the lesser three gorges.  The views were splendid.

Would like to update you that the Wanda Orange hotel goes by a different name now and somehow the reception took some time to find our booking.

However, once that was sorted out, everything was fine. We had a good view from our room window.

We were pleasantly surprised with the development and lights in Yichang city too and the lively activities along the riverside park in the evening and morning.

Hello Tracy,

The cruise was very good, and we thank you for your advices;
just you gave us a wrong information about the presence of a fridge in the cabin we have booked: there is no fridge in these cabins: but it's not so worse.

Otherwise the crew, the boat, the food and the attractions and spectacles were good, and we spent a good time during the cruise.
We enjoyed the cruise very much in general.

I would say also that the time to visit the shibao pagoda was really too short (less than 2 hours), because we wanted to spend more time on shore to visit the shops, or to make more pictures.

So we hope that our remarks will help to make the cruise better;

1.  My travel consultant was excellent. She was very patient and thorough in answer my many questions. She always replied promptly and courteously. She was a real pleasure to deal with.

2.  The staff of the ship treated us very well.  I think we were the only English speakers aboard, but they made sure that we always had an English-speaking guide when we went on the excursions.  We really appreciated that. The staff were quite pleasant and many spoke excellent English. They were also very well organized.

3.  Yes, I would definitely recommend your company!

Minor point:  When we docked for the White Emperor City excursion, there were several other cruise ships next to us. The Yangtze Gold was the prettiest ship there!  It was also really easy to identify thanks to the gold on the top deck.

Question for you.  After we left Fengdu, we docked for the night at a city that had a beautiful red bridge that was lit up at night. The entire area put on a light show that night, with the town next to the bridge lighting up in colored lights that kept changing:  green, blue, red, purple.  It was beautiful to see. We were lucky that our cabin was on the side of the ship next to this, or we would have missed it. Can you tell me what town this was?

I am not sure I have good photos. It was quite rainy most of the time. It didn't cause any problems, but even when it wasn't raining, the days were very gray and overcast. The shore excursions and trip through the gorges were great, but because of the weather, I don't think any of the photos will look good enough to use. I am still uploading them, so if I find a particularly nice one, I will send it along. Is there anything you are particularly interested in seeing?

Thank you again for all your help, Ashley!  I can truly say that the cruise was the highlight of our trip to China.

Best regards,

Hi Wonder,

I hope you are well.

We are having a fantastic time in China so far & are very excited for our Yangtze River cruise starting today. Can you tell us exactly where to find the Victoria Katarina please? We will be arriving at Chongqing North by bullet train from Chengdu & plan to take a taxi to the ship.

Many thanks,

Hi, Laura,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work that you had done for us in organising the holiday.

We all had a fantastic time and the guides at Chongqing, Yichang and Zhangjiajie are all excellent. The cruise was great and sceneries at Zhangjiajie are just breathtaking.

The transition from cruise to train and also to plane went smoothly. The train ride from Yichang to Zhangjiajie is an interesting experience for us as we are not use to bunker beds on train. We probably should have pick seat only. Anyway, an excellent tour and I will certainly recommend your company to any of my friend who maybe heading that way.

I also attached a group photo so that you can remember us.

Thanks again and have a happy national day holiday.

Thanks & regards,

Sin Poh

Good Morning Wonder,

Sorry it took so long to say Thank You for your follow up. You had been so gracious to call me this morning, we were in route to the 3 Gorges when you called, unfortunately we got disconnected before I could even say Thank You for your being so concerned about us on your day off from work. 

Everything went so smoothly from Yichang to Zhangjiajie, Fe from Yichang waited and made sure we were situated in our cabin before she said goodbye, she even got us a porter to help us with the luggages.

When we arrived in Zhangjiajie, Lily was already standing by the train looking for us. She even helped with our luggages by herself. Both guides from these 2 places did absolutely wonderful. But I knew it is all because of you being on top of everything.

What ever happened is in the past, I am the kind of person that never look back, I only look forward. The reason I brought them to your attention was for the sole purpose of just updating.

To me, you are still the person I knew , you made our trip wonderful and I truly appreciate everything you did to make this happened.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Rosy

Hi Ian,

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,

Zane
