Luis:

we arrived home Friday night. After getting on the flight to Beijing, everything went very smoothly! Thank you again for working so hard to re-arrange our flights and for making sure we were okay! As i think I mentioned to you, many foreigners were stranded because of the delays and dealing with the airline people was very exasperating for them. We feel so lucky to have had your assistance through it all.

The trip to Chengdu and Guangzhou was an incredible experience for us! We learned SO MUCH information in Chengdu and feel that we understand China's history and culture significantly much better than before we went. The time in Guangzhou was "food for the soul". Michael, our guide, was delightful. And we were blown away by the spectacular beauty of the city!

Thank you for arranging this great trip for us! And thank you for the lovely CD of music - we listened to it today and it is beautiful music!

Next week, we are headed back to the states for 8 months. We will be back in China next March (spring semester), so we will probably be contacting you again to arrange another trip or two a year from now.

Thanks again!

Hello Luis,
The overall impression of the organisation is quite good. You didn't deceive my first impression, that you were serious and concerned about the well-being of your clients. You help me a lot. During my eight days trip, I enjoyed many yummy foods. The three cities are also great with many tour attractions. The Sanxingdui Museum houses an impressive display of artifacts from Sichuan's Bronze Age (ca. 1300-300 BC), most excavated from the Sanxingdui site itself. The material is striking for its radical difference from other Bronze Age cultures found in the region we now call China. This was really a history book to me. In this trip, I had much time to enjoy my own way.

You can publish my comments on your website and include my email address, I will be very happy to share our great experience with future travelers. Thank you for your excellent arrangement.

Best regards,
The Simons
