Hi Jack

Took us a couple of days to get back to normal here

Both tours were amazing

We all agreed that Zhangjiajie is one of the most amazing places we have ever been

Beautiful scenery, unbelievable landscapes and basically incredible sights and attractions

Disappointed we missed the Fairy Fox show, but that was just timing

Xian was equally as interesting and to spend our Christmas Day with the Terracotta Warriors was a Christmas to remember

Both guides were brilliant and very knowledgeable

Thanks again for arranging this for us and I have already been passing China Discovery details on to others and will continue to do so

Vivien,

It was a great trip. Candy was a wonderful guide. The van was extremely comfortable and made the one day trip very easy for my family. We would definitely use her again in the future and recommend her to others.

Thank you once again for helping set up a memorable trip.
