I love Xiamen. I think it's underrated. You did really excellent. Tulou coverage. I appreciated not getting wiped out by tour bus crowds. The first hotel was wonderful, I loved that it had a gym and you could set your own room temp RE heat/ac. The second hotel was fine, I know it's what is available that's hotel level I think in the long-term you may look at a different hotel near the Tulous as more are built and once the highway comes in, you may look for others to avoid crowding. For the Tulou part, our lunches were amazing, while dinner situation was less so , the hotel restaurant had closed by the time we got there, one of few small foibles. I really liked our guide, he was knowledgeable and adaptable, and I liked that he was willing to take us to food places we enjoyed. Our driver was excellent too, brave and fast. It was a wonderful trip and a true escape.

Hotels good, driver good (very professional and nice), and also the guide was great. It was a nice relaxing and beautiful long weekend, and we both want to go back to Xiamen again soon. Such great food (Chinese and western) available, and great scenery to relax or do outdoor activities. We both had a great time this weekend.
I would say the only weakness was the dinner in the small town, but we understand this is the slow season for tourism, and we had otherwise really great food! It was a great trip though, we are even more excited for Harbin!

Thanks. My answers are below:
Mr. Wonder Wang has been very responsive and knowledgeable in answering our questions and inquiries. He has patience in helping us revise the itineraries to meet your needs.
Both the tour guides (Roland of Xiamen and Cherry of Wuyishan) were very good in getting us around. They were helpful, very knowledgeable and patient in explaining to us the important points of the area.
I highly recommend China Discovery to everyone who are looking for quality services.

Our tour at Xiamen and Tulou villages was very nice, we really enjoyed our time there!
Our guide was really interesting, speaking very good English and had good knowledge on the Hakka villages. The driver was very nice also and the car very comfortable! My parents and I were really satisfied with your service.
I will recommend your agency in the future if people I know are interested in visiting Hakka villages!
Thank you again for this tour.

"We had a wonderful time in Huangshan, we were brave to climb that mountain, even my husband did it, slowly, but we did it. The Huangshan guide was excellent, the hotel you booked us was beautiful and people there were very friendly. Love the food too, especially bamboo shoot."
"What a pleasure to finally met you!! Meeting you was the highlight of my visit to China!! And thank you for taking us to dinner and given us such wonderful experience! The food was so tasty, the ambience was wonderful, my husband liked it very much! But the best part of all was having it with you! We enjoyed it enormously! This is such a memorable journey, and you helped made it happened Thank you for being so detail oriented; it is incredible for you being so young yet so thorough!
Yesterday we saw the Big Buddha at Ling Yun Mt, the weather was perfect and no crowd. We did not go down the stairs to the foot of the Buddha cause it really is too high and steep. Later we went to the Ebony Museum, what an amazing & massive collection! In the evening we went to see a show, it was the 4th show we saw, one in Shanghai, one in Huangshan, one in Yangshou, and the best one here on Sichuan. It was almost 10:30 pm my time we got back to the hotel.
And this morning we had to wake up early for our 8 o'clock journey to Mt.Emei. We climbed the steeped & very wet steps, it was a little hard today because it was so cloudy and cold and the air is so thin on top! We did not walk down the mountain, instead, we rode the Sedan Chair! What an experience! We loved it. Those guys are so strong and fast!! "

The tour was exactly what we wanted. It met every expectation.
The car was excellent.
The driver was excellent.
The guide was excellent.
The guide and driver shared information which was terrific so between them they knew all the right spots to take us. The outline of the trip was very good and we covered everything plus more. The café’s selected for lunch and dinner were excellent for local food. The guide gave us information and spoke with respect to the local people. And taught us to show the same respect which was good.
The tour moved at our pace and we were never hurried if we wanted to stay longer at one site. Always offered toilet breaks and asked if we required a rest break. I also sat in the front of the car so I could see more. When sites were very busy with tourists we went to the smaller sites first then the larger sites when less tourists were there. Guide was excellent and you should use him every time. The experience of being able to go to the top level of an earthen building was amazing. One has to go up the stairs early before many tourists arrive or late after the tourists had left. This was an extra small cost 15Y but really worth it. The local lady that took us up was terrific. And the guide was excellent at interpreting for us.
The tour went smoothly with no problems. We would be happy to email any other western clients to talk to them about this Fujian Tulou trip, in the future.
We are not making a web page of our trip. We can send you some photos in a week or so.
Thank you for all your service and prompt replies to our emails.
