Comment on our service from Martin McMulkin, UK
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

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.


Cheers,
Sandra

The tour operator is very helpful and prompt in making arrangements for us, and the guide is good and helpful.
Family tour in Yunnan
Please see my comments as follows:
1. What do you think of our guide service? 
Good and helpful.

2. What do you think of our driver service? 
Good, but not particularly cheerful.

3. What do you think of the hotel service and their breakfast? 
These International hotels' services and quality are as good as they usually are. The only comment I wish to make is that on top of the guests request for the types of rooms, they should consider to allocate ground level or easy access rooms for elderly and/or handicapped guests.

4. Which meal makes you memorable? 
Aside from the hotel being rather old the Chinese restaurant food was excellent in Dali. Good variety and tasty.

5. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday? 
Because of you, Sandy! You were very helpful and prompt in making arrangements for us. Thank you!

Best regards,
Barton
