Comment on our service from Juliana & Joe, USA
We are back home and I just wanted to send you a note and let you know again how pleased we were with the tour package that you put together for us. It was last minute and I realize this made things more difficult for you. Everything worked out so very well!

We are back home and I just wanted to send you a note and let you know again how pleased we were with the tour package that you put together for us.  It was last minute and I realize this made things more difficult for you.  Everything worked out so very well!

All of our guides were wonderful.  We wanted to send a special letter to let you know that we were most impressed with our last guide, Mr. Yak (Tserang).  He was with us for the Tiger Leaping Gorge hike and then in Shangri La.  He was the high light of our trip!  Mr. Yak was so very helpful, knowledgable about the culture and the area and he was tremendously thoughtful and professional.  Joe and I have traveled the world quite extensively and can say that Mr. Yak was one of the best guides we have ever experienced. 

We certainly will reach out to you again when we are ready for our next trip to China.

Thank you,

Juliana Jamail

I really enjoyed my tour in Xian despite of the high temperature. The information provided by the guide was relevant from a historical point of view. She was kind and she tried to answer all my questions.

Thank you very much for your letter, I really enjoyed my tour in Xian despite of the high temperature. In this context, it was helpful to have a transportation with air conditioning, thanks you also for the bottle of water, I suggest you to have the bottle of water cold and to keep them in an ice box.

Just wanted to thank you for making our trip such an enjoyable experience. My family and I had a great time. Our guide, David, in Huangshan is very knowledgeable and most accommodating. He takes pride in his work and his cultural heritage. We learned a lot from him. 

I will certainly seek out your services 
again and recommend your tour company to my family and friends.

Have a great day!

All our tours in Shanghai were great and the service was fantastic. And our Beijing tours was hit and miss a little bit.

Just a little feedback of our recent tours with you.

All our tours in Shanghai were great and the service was fantastic.

And our Beijing tours was hit and miss a little bit.

The guide we had for the tour of Tiananmen Square and Summer Place along with Forbidden City she was fantastic forgot her name, sorry.

I think you supplied the guide name Rocky what a blast we had with him number one guy.

So our top guides were Miss Keely or Ping along with Rocky and Miss Zhang.

I’ve been sick since we returned so that's why late feed back.


Best wishes,
David Steele
