Hi Tom,

First of all thanks for arranging everything. Our tour went flawless and the services were excellent! We had an unforgettable time in Beijing and Chengde.

All of our tour guides were very accommodating and warm! We never experienced a dull moment with them. Everything in the tour gave us value for money. The hotel was great, you were right, the location better. Our Beijing guide, Iris showed true knowledge of the City so as did Helen, our Chengde guide. Even though we spend only a few hours at the Hutongs, our guide there, Janet gave us a thorough tour of the area. Suffice to say, all tour guides did an excellent job. I can say the same for our drivers. They did everything to avoid traffic and was careful in their driving. Good job.

All in all, thanks to China Travel Depot for making our trip relaxing, breathtaking and fun!

Looking forward to our next tour, maybe next year same time to Hongkong and Guilin. :)

Of course, with CTD again. I am even endorsing CTD to others considering a China Trip.

Thanks again,

Keep in touch!

Hi Carol,

We got home yesterday after a very nice trip to China. I wanted to send you this special note of Thank you - for doing such a great job in arranging our trip...everything went without any problems – both in Beijing and Chengde--all the local guide showed up on time every day like they promised and they were all very helpful and flexible...
In Beijing, we visited the famous Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Great Wall, Summer Palace, as well as enjoyed the Beijing Opera and a Roast Duck Dinner…everything with Chinese character.

In Chengde, we visited the Mountain Resort and its Outlying Temples, and had a general understanding of Chinese loyal gardens.

Our experience in China was amazing and we were so impressed with the clean and beautifully kept cities, the transport systems and the people. We really hope to do a trip in China again because there is still so much that we need to see in China.

Please keep in touch!

Good luck to you,

Jayant Wasudeo
