Dear Choury,
Please forgive our delay in sending you, the tour guides and your company a very big thank you for our most memorial vacation. We are currently in Myanmar and will arrive home on May 6th. We plan to write a more detailed letter to you then expressing our gratitude for our extraordinary Tour of China. Our only regret was not meeting you!

Dear Sara, We are up in Shangri La now and really enjoying the trip.The driver has been excellent and all the guides too have been very good looking after us well. China is an amazing country so much to see and we are having a great time really enjoying it. Your organisation is excellent. We just wonder if we can change one thing. We are a little worried about the overnight train trip at the end and wonder if you can change it to a flight to Kunming instead of the train. This would be on the same day Wednesday 28th November. We would need a hotel overnight in Kunming the same night as well as transfer from and to airport.
