Thanks for reaching out. We had a wonderful time on the trip and all the guides were excellent. Everyone was very professional and flexible to our needs and made the experience very personal. We were really pleasantly surprised by the photo gift you gave us and the T-shirts and bags. That was very nice of you. Thank you also for making arrangements for the birthday cake. It made my mom very happy.
All the guides were very helpful with sharing knowledge about day-to-day life in China and they were very accommodating because of the heat. They made sure we saw as much highlights of China as possible given the time we had.
Each guide made each city special. Selina helped me try to locate lost luggage in Beijing and made sure we did everything on the itinerary. Tracy was very accommodating helping us find bathing suits for the kids and suggesting we drive to the Small Goose Pagoda because a lot of us were very hot and tired after visiting the Terra Cotta Warriors in Xian. Abby was great in Chengdu and gave us great recommendations for hot pot lunch and the local theater show. Lily on the Yangtze Gold was excellent. She helped answer any questions no matter what time of day or night. Even the few hours we spent with our guides in Chongqing and Yichang were very helpful and entertaining. I felt they were really looking out for me and my family getting to the boat and ship. Ocean was great in Shanghai. We would have enjoyed an extra few days there if we had more time.
All of the hotels were excellent. The food was very good at the hotels and all the restaurant arrangements were very good.
For the river cruise, I'm sure it was the best accommodations but it was not the cleanest and most of the on-board activities (mini-golf, arcade) were unavailable.
We loved all the activities and site-seeing and we appreciated the shopping opportunities. No one was pushy about it. The family lunch and visit to the family were some of the favorites. We really enjoyed getting to know some people personally. Also, it was extremely helpful that you gave me the tip guideline before the trip. I had prepared the money beforehand and it made the expenses much more manageable.
If we decide on another international trip in Asia, I will definitely reach out to you again!
