Hello Julia, We just got back Friday night and are slowly recovering from the jet lag (it actually takes a day per hour for full recovery). I am happy to say that our experience in Beijing and Xian and the service provided by your agency was excellent. In your country, we got the opportunity to get in touch with three most popular and important cities to see real China, in Beijing and Xian we visited the legendary, historical and cultural sites to get close to Chinese civilization, in shanghai we walked on Xintiandi Bar Area and enjoy modern communications between east and west, really a fantastic journey. My only suggestion is with respect to the evaluation form that the guides asked us to complete for them at the end of the service. The evaluation should be confidential and should be mailed or emailed directly to you. This change in the process will provide you with a more accurate evaluation.

Dear Joanna, We are pleased to forward the following comments on our China experience. "We recently holidayed in China, with all our arrangements organised by China Travel Depot.This holiday was arranged over the internet and our consultant, James Li, ensured that the holiday went without hiccup from arrival to departure.We basically used one of China Travel Depot's itineraries and made changes and additions to suit our own requirements.He provided us with the best possible price and any questions we had before departure were quickly answered by email. We were met at every airport by a qualified english speaking tour guide, taken to our hotel and our guide ensured that all was satisfactory before leaving. The guides were punctual and their knowledge of the history of China and the attractions we visited made our tour that much more enjoyable.At the completion of each leg of our trip we were driven to the airport and the guide checked us in for the next leg. We would like to thank Paula, Sophia, Michael, Harry and Andy for their expertise and professionalism. The tour was wonderful and exceeded our expectations.The personal attention of all the tour guides took all the worry out of travelling in China and ensured our experience was memorable."
