Overall Satisfaction:
I went to China with my girl friend. She said it was one of the best trips she ever had. As long as she enjoyed it, I would never regret. Personally, I was not that kind of people who love traveling so much. But this tour changed me a lot. I think I should save more money for traveling in the remaining of my life. Go out to see a world different from ours is really a magic thing. All in all, this tour left me an unforgettable memory and I shouldn’t be too thankful to you for you made such a wonderful journey for me and my darling and made me find a new myself inside. I know I will go back to china again, as my first step to explore the world. And you certainly can wait for me from now on.

Overall Satisfaction:
This was my first trip to China, and I had such a good time! The service provided by China Travel Depot was quite satisfactory. The guides were all lovely young girls, who can spoke excellently good English. They were really helpful and nice. During the 8 days, I visited Beijing and had a cruise along Yangtze River. Everything was so interesting for me. I took a lot of pictures and made several videos. Can’t wait to show them off to my friends!

Hi Luis,

Just writing to thank you for the fantastic time I spent in China, I hope I filled your form in to your satisfaction..

I was really happy with all aspects of my holiday. I couldn't pick a fault in any of the plans or arrangements or execution of them. All the guides were well prepared, punctual, courteous and helpful (quick thank you to Andy in Beijing for going out his way to get me a plug adaptor that I callously forgot to bring), and a special mention to Ellie in who made my time Chongqing the highlight of my trip. I am now seriously considering visiting China again, keep up the good work guys!

As to the tour itself, all I can say is that it was wonderful. I have fallen in love with China and now must think about visiting other places in your country in the future.

I've still got to finalize my pictures and download them to my computer and when I have done so I will send you a couple.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you!

Best Regards,

Andy Cheyne
