Hello Wonder!

This email is a bit late, but it is the review email!  I just posted a review to tripadvisor.  I think it takes a day or two load (I think it gets reviewed), but this is what it says: 

"This is the second trip that my husband and I have taken with China Discovery, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Our first experience with China Discovery was a trip to Yunan Provice. This time, we went to Zhangjiajie in Hunan Provice.  Each time, our thoughtful travel consultant, Wonder, kept us informed about the process.  When we had questions, he answered them. If it required him to reach out to a tourist site to confirm information, he did. He kept us informed of various travel requirements, weather conditions, etc. I feel very comfortable and confident planning my trips through Wonder, and my husband and I are planning additional trips with him as our travel consultant in the future.

Each time we have gone on a trip, we have loved the itinerary, the food, and the experience. In addition, our guides' English has always been superb, and we enjoyed chatting with them to gain more cultural understanding of our environment.


In Yunan, Tom was our guide.  We went to the Yuanyang Rice terraces and surrounding areas of Kunming. He was great!  Great conversationalist, great enthusiast for history and culture, and great guide. he even always made sure we had extra bottles of water.  We would highly recommend Tom.

As for Zhangjiajie specifically, it was great fun!  Our local guide, David, was fantastic.  At one point, when he realized we really did not like the crowds, he made a point to find quieter and more solitary locations that would still show us the splendor of Zhangjiajie.  Food choices were great.  He kept us to a schedule, but in a comfortable and appropriate way.  We really, thoroughly, enjoyed ourselves.  We would highly recommend David.

As you can tell, we had two totally different trips and both were highly successful.  Our experience with China Discovery has thus far been a completely wonderful experience and we hope to have more in the future." 

As for the China Discovery website, you are free to use the above review, or for variety, you can use the following.

"We recently went to Zhangjiajie and it was an amazing experience!  Wonder was our travel agent again -- I was so happy with my first trip with Wonder that I reached out to him again for this second trip!  Wonder took the time to answer questions, inform us about travel requirements, and ensure we had a wonderful time.  He patiently answered questions and gave us different quotes as the number of people and days of the trip changed.  The fact our second trip planned by Wonder was so great, that it gave me confidence and comfort to plan a third trip with Wonder, which will happen later this year.

In addition, our guide in Zhangjiajie, David, was fantastic. He made a point to ensure that in each event, we had every opportunity to enjoy ourselves.  At one point, he realized we did not like the crowds associated with the most popular lookout points in Zhangjiajie, so he made a point to take us to more quiet, solitary locations that still provided us with the splendor of the park. He took care of every entrance and made sure everything was as seamless as possible. It was amazing. His english was fantastic and he took the time to ask questions and listen to answers. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were very happy to have had David as our guide!" 

Also, I have some pictures for you!  They should be attached. You are free to use these on your website.  (They might have gone to the bottom of the email chain)

Thanks, Wonder!  We are looking forward to our upcoming Yunan trip also.  

 

take care
