We have been wondering how the wonderful people we met are getting through this crisis. We are glad to hear that you are well. We hope that you and your family and friends can stay healthy.
We are well and are living near our son and his family who can help us. My sister in California said that no one is allowed out of the house except for food shopping or something necessary in order to live. Last week 3.3 million people applied for unemployment benefits in our country. So many businesses are closed.
We hope to travel again and will contact you when it is again possible to see other countries.

First my wife and i are very concerned about you & family plus our guides and their families due to the coronavirus.
We had a fantastic time in China just a few months ago.
1. Our travel arrangements were PERFECT! It was an affordable vacation yet for only a few dollars over base cost we were able to upgrade to Hainan airlines and 1st class high speed trains,
Plus our hotels (when the front desk is an actual luxury desk you sit at checking in - you relax and know your stay will be so nice!)
We were met on time by friendly staff in each city.
Our local tour guides were great! Each different but good.
We have recommended your tour company many times as we discuss our trip and show our pictures. Everything went very smoothly. As we exchanged emails our perfect vacation developed so easily.
Improvements? Not many. The tour locations, transportation, lunches, drivers & guides etc... were great!
2 things- our guide in Shanghai wanted to tell us so much. She was worried about the time too much. For her, the other guides, and the travellers - please send a simple intro guide lesson for us fo read and take with. So many dynasties, rivers, canals, rocks, pagodas etc...to learn.
Also, the shopping stops were very nice and also affordable.
But, if wasn't until our last morning that i discovered a souvenir shop. To buy tshirts, key chains, refrigerator magnets, etc.. This is an important part of travel as the "themed" location shops dont carry items forg all the friends and family back home.
Also in Xian we had expected fo visit the ancient mosque along with the muslim street.
Thank you for a wonderful trip.

I have returned and am back to my normal busy work and school schedule, sorry for the delay in response. You are more than welcome to use the review on your website!
We had a wonderful time on our day trip to Suzhou and Zhouzhuang! Both our guide and driver were knowledgeable and fantastic. The car was nice and clean and very comfortable. Our pick up was on time, and the entire trip was planned out perfectly. You made planning our ideal trip extremely easy and it ended up being a great experience. I would most definitely recommend both China discovery and our guide & driver to friends and family. I will definitely be emailing you on our next trip to China!
Thank you for everything!
All the best,

Hope this email find you well.
My family and I have returned to Sydney after 6 weeks of travelling! I want to thank you for arranging our 25 days China tour which we have really enjoyed. The itinerary was good although a bit tiring!
China was amazing and your service in organizing and trouble shooting while we were there was greatly appreciated.
On reflection, we realized the highlights during our tours were the cities where we had a good guide and driver.
FYI the guides in SuZhou (Sarah), Guilin (Summer), Kunming (Jessie) and Lijiang ( Susan) and Chengdu (Jane) were all amazing. Their English and knowledge were very good. They made these cities/ places come alive for us.
Alan in Hangzhou took us to the best restaurant and ordered the best lunch we had in 25 days. Again a memorable city for us
On the flip side, Dali which was a beautiful city but we did not enjoy mostly because our guide ( Shirley) does not speak English well. We could not understand her narrative or explanation most of the time. The guide in Wuhan ( Jennifer) was very unhelpful, was on her phone most of the time unless we asked her questions. For e.g. The highlight of Wuhan to us was the yellow crane tower but she did not even bother to walk up with us ( and gave us 20 min to go up and come down) As we all could not read Chinese , it made all the beautiful artworks, poems and historical significance a complete loss to us! At the Eastlake, again a beautiful area she rushed us in and out because she said we did not have enough time but we ended finishing the day around 4 ! As you know she also ignore us during lunch so I had to send you the complaint myself! So Wuhan to use was the least enjoyable day.
For your reference, I think you have to ensure the guides you provide to any group you organize speak good English and are experience and helpful.
Overall, I think it was a great tour and your service is excellent from start to finish. I will certainly recommend you to my friends and hope to organize a Silk Road tour with you in the near future !

I am Sarala from Chennai, India
I am one of 3 visitors from India who visited China tour recently. It was wonderful experience visiting these places. After the whole trip I felt we could have skipped Nanjing and suzou.
Lee from Zhangjiajie and Jessy from Kunming are the best guide come translator during our trip.
On the whole the trip was wonderful and will look to see rest of china in future. Thank you.

We had a really wonderful trip - thank you for all of your arrangements. I really appreciate all of your efforts to accommodate our group’s many requests leading up to the tour.
The best single aspect during the tour was the quality of the guides in each city. Each was excellent at flexibly accommodating our group’s requests, and in tailoring to the wide needs of our group, from my 74-year-old father down to my 11.5-month-old niece.
If I had to choose one detail of the tour to improve, it would be the hotel in Hangzhou, which compared relatively poorly to the great hotels in Beijing, Huangshan, and Suzhou in terms of room quality. Even so, the breakfast at the Hangzhou hotel was excellent, as was the location.
Overall, we had an extremely memorable trip, and are so happy that three generations could share such a wonderful experience together. My parents have already recommended China Discovery to friends, and I will also be in touch again the next time we visit China and need guide services.
Thank you again for all of your efforts on our behalf for this tour!

The China Water-towns Photography Tour was very great. Everything went very smoothly and the tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The communication with China Discovery was great and emails were answered very quickly. Overall I’d say that the tour was 5-star and great value.
I am happy for you to use the above comments and pictures on your website.
