All the guides you proposed us were excellent! Very kind and nice, we have been very happy to meet them.

The same as the guides, excellent drivers, we had no problems and we felt safe on the road.

5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?
Many parts, from the terraces of Guilin to the old part of Lijiang to the Potala Palace, everything was very interesting! As I told you this third tour was the best one for us: the weather was fine and not foggy, many interesting things to see and people is more kind in this south part of China, also the guides. We think we will do the fourth tour in the next two years :-)

No other suggestion, everything was OK

I wish you a nice day,

A very big hug from Manuela

Longji Rice Terraces Guilin tour
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.

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
