Good morning Rita,

We have very good time in China from 01/06/24 to 19/06/24. But it is a little bit exhausted after hiking through ZhangJiaJie. The best of all tour guides are Linda and Peter. These two tour guides show their ability to communicate with us. They care and respect us. In overall I would recommend China Discovery to relatives and friends for any upcoming China tour. We are happy for China Discovery to use our photos.

Hi there, feedback as below:

Wonder Wang was great to work with. All emails and questions were answered very quickly. We booked this a little bit late and provided a list of things that we would like to do and quickly got a detailed itinerary that covered everything we wanted to do. The itinerary was very detailed and we were well taken care of throughout the whole trip. During our trip we wanted to change something and this was done effortlessly. Five star service all the way!

Everything worked out great. All of our guides and drivers were extremely helpful and always on time and where they said they would be. The guides were local to the places we went so they provided us with a ton of information about everything we were seeing. The hotels were great, the trains were all great, we really enjoyed everything and it was easy thanks to the work of Wonder Wang.

I would 100% recommend this company. Everything was top notch and communication was smooth. We were never in doubt about anything to do with the trip. Again 5 stars!
