Hi Choury and Sara,

I just wanted to send a little email to thank you both so much for helping us with the tour. We had an amazing time in Beijing, even though we were there for just two and half days. We could not believe what we managed to squeeze into our time there thanks to all your excellent planning.

Our guides ‘Tina’ and ‘Andy’ were wonderful and the drive out to and walk along the JinShan Ling section of the Great Wall were as wonderful as I had dreamed of. The visit and tour around the Hutong was wonderful, the Acrobatics concert in the city was incredible and world class entertainment, the tea tasting was fun, the Temple of Heaven and Price Gong’s Palace both beautiful to visit, Tianamen Square and the Emporer’s Palace and surrounds were breathtaking in scale.

The motel was better than I had hoped for and close to city food and entertainment for walking in our free time in the evenings. I would recommend your company to anyone and everyone who is interested to go to China Many, many thanks again,

Dear Michelle, I have just arrived home and I want to thank you sincerely for organizing such a wonderful tour for our party of four adults and three children. Your friendly guides and drivers were all excellent. We were always met on arrival and assisted on each departure for every stage of the tour, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the marvelous sights we were shown and the interesting commentary presented. The accommodation was always four star as promised, and the meals were tasty and satisfying. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to any of our friends and acquaintances.
