Bring a jacket and layer- although it is breezy, the climbing is tough. So be in a good shape!

Comment on our service from Wolfgang Ernst Kasper, Australia
I want to to thank you again for your good services. Everything worked out as expected ––or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable.

Dear Sandy,

now that we have returned home after a marvellous trip through China, I want to to thank you again for your good services.

Everything worked out as expected –– or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable. In particular, the guide at Huangshan – I called her ciao Xue (Little Snow) – was attentive and intelligent, great company!


After the hike up and down on Huangshan, we felt great: we can still do that at our age in the high seventies!


Hakka Country


Finally, it was a pleasant surprise to get your call. That was unexpected, but much appreciated.

Keep selling China to the world!

Best wishes

I am so pleased we had a chance to stay in the other location as we were able to see and learn so much.


I cannot praise our guide Jason enough. He was so knowledgeable, kind and fun. He was still helping today when Lisa left money in the safe at the other hotel. It has been a fantastic trip.


Thank you so much,

Comment on our service from Reinhard Bührer, Switzerland

Good experience from the past years. I think we booked already more than eight times through you.

Hi Sandy,


Please find my comments and Feedback to our Beijing tour as follows:


1. What do you think of our guide service?

Holly was a lovely tour guide. Always very punctual.


2. What do you think of our driver service?

Good driver. We felt quite safe.


3. Which meal makes you memorable? Please name the reason why you like or dislike it?

The day on the way to Great Wall (Mutanyu) we went to a nice restaurant which was built like a garden house. Here we got good food and good service.


4. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday?

Good experience from the past years. I think we booked already more than eight times through you.


5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?

We visited the Great Wall in the afternoon. That was a good choice as there were not many people anymore and we were almost alone on the Great Wall, with fantastic weather it felt great.

Comment on our service from Helen, Graham Knott, UK

The trip that you arranged for us was amazing from start to finish, thank you for your patience with arranging everything we asked for.

           

Dear Sandy


Thank you for your email and the photos from our trip.


I must apologise for not emailing you before now, but we have been busy and time just flies by.


     


The trip that you arranged for us was amazing from start to finish, thank you for your patience with arranging everything we asked for, we were tired out at the end but wanted to see as much as our time allowed.  Each place was different but we enjoyed everything. The organisation of everything was excellent, the guides were always on time, the drivers friendly and their cars clean with plenty of bottled water. The hotels were in great locations and the rooms were comfortable, the breakfasts could have been better especially at the King Parkview in Beijing (but having said that we did not go hungry). The lunches were great too, we enjoyed tasting all the different dishes.


       


It was really nice to be able to meet you in Guilin, it was a lovely meal (sorry we couldn’t eat more) and we hope that you enjoyed the shortbread biscuits. The Chinese knot you gave us is hanging in our car for good luck  If you would like to use any of the photographs from our trip on your website please feel free do so.


I will also leave a review on Tripadvisor.


We would have no hesitation to recommend you and your company to our friends thinking of visiting China, but most are not as independent at travelling as we are 


Please pass on our best regards to Kai, Samantha and Hannah


Sending our best wishes to you from a sunny UK


Best regards


Helen and Graham Knott

Jiayuguan Fort

The tour you organized for us went very well, excellent timing and communication, even the restaurant where we stopped for lunch was very good. I want to give a special compliment to the guide Jenny, who was very well prepared, a vast vocabulary, very helpful (she also solved some small problems in our organization), nice and pleasant company. She also helped us book a show and get to the theater in Dunhuang.

Even the transport in the car was very pleasant, spacious car and comfortable driving, another compliment also to the driver.
