Dear Nancy,

The tour was good and Guides were very nice and transportation was also good. But we are Indians and difficult for to eat traditional Chinese food though both the guides took special consideration in ordering “ Likeable” food for us. In future , we will opt for Indian restaurants only. We will be in touch
