Hello Julia,
Our guide was GREAT! Her English was perfect! She was easy going and always willing to answer any and all of our questions. She provided a great deal of history and detail on the customs, the culture, and the society of China both from an historical as well as a modern perspective. Sara met us at the airport, came into the hotel and stood with us while we registered. When we were dropped off at the airport for our return flight home, Sara came into the terminal with us, made sure we found our airline check in and stood on line with us until our bags were checked in and our seat assignments provided. She stayed with us until we had to pass through security. We were so pleased with her skills and her attitude, and her warmth!

All the best,
Sara Blair, UK

Hello Tom,
First of all I would like to thank your organization very much for our wonderful tour guides. We had a fine young man as our guide in Pingyao. He and the driver were very pleasant and very informed. We even asked for a minor change in itinerary and they were happy to comply. We were very pleased with them.

This tour is a must see if you want to know more about the culture of China. Pingyao was a silent place, but there were too many tourists when I visited. It was a pity. It was a pleasant journey in all.

Regards,
Alexandra Schmitt, U.S.A

Dear Julia,
We had a wonderful tour of China and I have already recommended your company to several people. The food was excellent throughout - we enjoyed the variety of dishes offered at the many beautiful restaurants we visited.

This was the first time for me to visit Pingyao. The ancient architectures was not built for emperors, but the ordinary people. I thought these are more sensible. The people there are friendly, and the streets there is not crowed or noisy. I hope you can tell that we were very please with out trip and I think that your company should be proud of the excellent services they offer.

Sincerely,
Damien Henderson
