Comment on our service from Gloria Rabanal, Mexico
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.

Comment on our service from David Steele, Australia

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,
