    Posted on November 07, 2018
    A big thank you for such a wonderful vacation. I was quite pleased with Angela's arrangements, particularly with the guides and drivers. The only thing I would change is that I would not take the meals as part of the group tour so I could have a larger choice of places to eat, particularly the local places. However, I am probably not the typical traveler in that regard.

    The guides in Guilin (David) and Xian (Jessie) were both outstanding. Their English was excellent (and easy for me to understand) and they spent a lot of time telling me about Chinese culture, etc. which made my visit much richer and my understanding of China much greater. I was also shocked AND deeply impressed by the remains of Angkor in Cambodia.

    I was very impressed with your agency and will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends. I was particularly impressed that our consultant took the time to meet me and with all of the information available from your web site. I now have wonderful memories and pictures that I have been sharing with my friends. Thank you very much.
