Thank your for all your organizing and help with our trip.  Cici in Beijing, Wendy in Xian and Lee in Quilin were all fantastic tour guides.  It was wonderful to see Lee again.  She was our guide in 2014 when we visited Guilin and Yangshuo.   Your agency helped us with our trip that time too.

Thanks for the lovely tea cups - they will always be reminders of a special time our family had on our holiday in China.

If there are any websites you would like us to post reviews, we will be happy to do so.

Let me thank you for organizing once again a great tour. All went really well with Kevin the Tour guide - his command of English was really good. Xi’an is an amazing city. We had a great time.

Good morning,

Hope all is well.

I am sorry for the late email but it has been very busy on this side :-)

I must commend your team as well as our guide and driver for their excellent service and job done. We were very satisfied with the arrangements.

Thank you for your follow-up email. I must commend your team as well as our guide and driver for their excellent service and job done.

My young son felt at home with her, and she went out of her way to take care of him and entertain him during the trip. She was also very knowledgeable about most things that we had questions about. We were very satisfied with the arrangements.

I've attached a few photos of us having a great time. We were lucky to experience good weather in Nanjing as well during our travels, with no rain and warm temperatures.

  

Will definitely contact you when we next return to China.

Best Regards,
Yuyi

Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin.
Yinchuan tour
Thank you for organizing the trip, we had a great time.

1. Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive.

2. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. Only problem was that the seatbelt in the van did not work properly.

3. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin. Lots of companies seem to quote ridiculous prices for non-Chinese travelers.

Thank you very much and if we plan to visit somewhere unusual like this again I will get in touch with your company.

Thanks
Martin

Tour in Beijing
Thank you so much for organizing the Tour for us - my Boss loved it!!!

All went well - actually much better than I thought it would be.

The tour guide Lucy (Ling Ling) was simply amazing - what a wonderful lovable and knowledgeable person!!!!

She took care of us in the most perfect way. 

If there's a tourist guide that can work really well with foreigners, it's Lucy.

Her command of English was simply great.

Thank you again for arranging everything.

Enjoy the rest of the day.
