Thanks for the photo. We are settled back in at home now.
We really had a great trip, thank you for making all the arrangements.
Everything went smoothly and we really saw a lot. All of the hotels were quite comfortable and our guides were very helpful & accommodating.
In Beijing I was glad we had lunch at Courtyard 7 (and I would recommend it to others) because that gave us a much better picture of the Hutongs than the rickshaw ride did - we really just rode around the perimeter.
We loved the views at the Mountain Retreat. However, we did have a problem with moisture on the floors in the gound floor rooms in the newer building & the windows were not well sealed. If you have other clients who request that hotel, you might want to only book upper floor rooms. Once we switched we were very happy because the views really were beautiful.
I also wanted to mention that Maggie was really a fantastic guide. She was great with the children, she kept everything moving right on schedule but we never felt rushed, her English was excellent and she was fun to be with. I would highly recommend her to any of your other clients. Kathy was good too but Maggie just exceeded our expectations.
