Hello Julia,
Many thanks to you travel agency for your professional attitude. We appreciate that you always tried to do your best for the best of your customer - to make us feel comfortable. We had a full and memorable China tour that we will always remember.

We enjoyed the meals at all. Also all restaurants chosen for us were nice and the services meet Chinese good standard. All guides were great and helpful. They possessed good knowledge of English and all have been talkative.

Once again thank you for everything and we will definitely recommend your services to all our family and friends and if we were to visit China again we will use your services.

Dear Tom,

We have now returned home and just wanted to express our thanks for all the hard work you put into our short tour. We had a wonderful time and have come away with some very good memories of Tibet.

If we ever come again to China and are looking for another tour we will certainly come back to China travel depot. We will also not hesitate to recommend your agency to friends and everybody else who asks us.

And especially I like to thank you again for the nice birthday presents. I was totally surprised because I did not expect this at all.

Thank you very much again,

Overall Satisfaction:
Dear Tom,
Thanks for your note. We enjoyed the trip very much. We were very pleased with your service and I'd highly recommend it to others. In fact, I've recommended your service to a couple people already.

Tibet was an amazing place to travel, and this time you organized a group to the two famous lakes. I chose this tour, and I think it is wise. The lake on Tibet Plateau was different from these we saw before.

The bus driver and the guide were all good. The water in the lake was pure. All the arrangements were good, and you really did a good job.

All the best,
Sarah Ann Benedict
