Hello Wendy,

We really enjoyed our experiences through Beijing, Xian, Lhasa, Yangtze River and Shanghai. The trip was generally well organized and gave us the chance to experience some real highlights of these cities.

We were really impressed by our guides, particularly Sara in Beijing, Wang Dui in Lhasa and Ocean in Shanghai. They were not only very knowledgeable but also lots of fun. They responded well to our needs and interests to ensure what we want to see. Besides, the meals that were included in the tour were generally very good. Mostly these were lunches, and were of a high standard which give us a good chance to experience Chinese food. What's more, the itineraries for each of the main places we visited were well designed. We enjoyed seeing a lot of historical and cultural highlights.

Overall, the communication before the trip was very good and we generally felt well supported by our travel consultant. We all have fun throughout the days and will surely use your company to design our China trip again in the future.

Regards,

Hi Wendy,

How are you?

It was our pleasure to tell you that we had a wonderful time during our holiday in China. We had a nice group of people and we are all getting along really well, that made our tour more enjoyable.

We are satisfied with the guides, drivers, meals, cars and hotels, except one hotel that we stayed in Beijing; the room smells smoke every time we walked into the room.

The guides gave us the feedback questionnaire to fill out during our private time.

We want to say thank you for organising a nice trip and a nice group of people.

Regards

Sorry for the slow reply - we've been busy catching up since our return to Sydney last Friday.

We were on the whole happy with our tour around China with your group. The guides were always pleasant helpful and punctual, and managed to keep our group together and in good spirits. We enjoyed the tourist places we visited - and when it was not possible to visit the actual planned place a good alternative was negotiated. The accommodation was up to standard, and likewise the meals. The main problem with our travel was not the fault of your company - the flight from Beijing to Xian was cancelled - and a satisfactory alternative was negotiated by the company which meant we only lost 1/2 day of the planned trips, which was pretty remarkable given the circumstances.

One aspect I think could be useful is if approximate times of air flights between centres is given in the itinerary. And given the general unreliability of Chinese internal flights, may be the High Speed Train could be used as an alternative on occasions.

Best regards

Hello Angela,

All the guides worked hard to make sure we had a very good and rewarding experience in China.

For our recent trip to Chengdu, I would certainly like to commend Emily for her great guiding. I hope that I conveyed that on my form. She was thoughtful and knowledgeable and her English was excellent.

I have been very pleased with both trips that your agency has organized and I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends.

Kind regards,

Dear Wendy:

This is my second visit to Beijing -the first visit was 2004 ,at that time, My wife Tewen and My youngest son came with me through one Japanese travel agency through my California agent Ann, [before Summer Olympics]. China changes dramatically during these 13 years, more developed in all infrastructures, people are very friendly, with a continued booming economy.

I am very happy with this trip. Linda in Beijing, especially, we call us Linda's family -she is very professional, kind, she taught all of us about history and culture of China, the norms, the traditional ways, distinctive difference between East and West. Her English is fluent, just like we are in a family - feeling at home. On a score of 10/10, I will give her 12 and beyond. Our group of 17 is satisfied, happy, blissful, joy with her presence even among the extreme humidity, unbearable heat, climbing the great wall at Badaling.

The hotel Novotel is not as impressive compared to Sheraton Xian, or Pullman jing An in Shanghai. It is kind of old hotel, it's advantage is location, wishing Accor group can remodel the hotel, one at a time, otherwise, they will lose customers, the front desk receptionists do not communicate in fluent English or French, Korean or Japanese. I will give this hotel 3.5 stars. All locations are well chosen in Beijing. Wished to spend one more day in Beijing to enjoy gourmet food, the gardens, Chinese book store.

Tracy in Xian is fantastic, full of energy, knowledgeable, a good match for Linda, a younger version of Linda, very kind and affectionate just as Linda does, to be congratulated for her fine work and hospitality.

Xian Sheraton is definitely 5 stars; I have been in many Starwood hotels [Sheraton] before it was incorporated in the Marriott family in Hawaii, other major cities of US. , this one is one of the best with service, food and room, impeccable

All bus drivers are great both in Shanghai, Beijing and Xian

The dancing and performance from the Tang dynasty is a highlight. The tour of the old Xian city walls with its well preserved walkway, easy for bike riding -home visit with family well done. Terracotta to me is a good trip. I just cannot say any good things about the first king of Qin who is a tyrant.

In Shanghai, Jacob is a wonderful guide ,his English is not as fluent as Linda and Tracy, he has a very warm heart working also as interpreter for Volkswagen ,Shanghai hotel Pullman is very modern , one of the best Accor hotel [sofitel ] far better than its sister hotel, Novotel, Xinqiao in Beijing, a star of 4, well deserved every one of the group wishes to have a chance to try the high speed rail in China. Hope one more day in Shanghai - including a trip to Hang Zhou by HSR [the Chinese Bullet train]

I have given my card, e-mail address and telephone to all member of our group [Linda family] so that we can connect, expand family of Linda-Tracy -Jacob
