    The daily itinerary went smoothly according to the schedule visitors had booked. The guide was professional and provided very considerate service. We visited many grottoes in the Mogao Grottoes and had a big feast for the eyes. We also appreciated a lot of historical relics in the Mogao Museum. A wonderful Dunhuang tour!

    I was pleased with the Dunhuang tour! Echoing-sand Dune and Crescent Lake were very beautiful and camel-ride was really interesting! The Yumenguan Pass and Great Wall of the Han Dynasty had been destroyed by wind and sand or human activities, but their historic stories attracted me. The Mogao Grottoes was the most anticipated scenic spot of my trip. The stunning murals and statues didn't disappoint me. That’s so great! I left unforgettable memories on the Dunhuang tour.

    A great 3 days Silk Road Dunhuang Trip. This was my first time to Dunhuang. The itinerary was reasonable. Everything was arranged well. The attractions were wonderful and I liked them all. I’d like to travel to Dunhuang with my family if I had a chance.

    It was a good Dunhuang Grottoes tour! There were many people in the Mogao Grottoes and the staff of the scenic area was very friendly. I spent a good time there.

    The Dunhuang tour was my family trip. The view of Echoing-sand Dune was excellent. It was not far from Crescent Lake. My child was so happy when he was told that we were going to Crescent Lake by riding camels. Crescent Lake was beautiful!! There were ancient buildings and plants beside the lake. We took a break and enjoyed the scenery. That’s awesome!

    The itinerary of the Dunhuang tour was very good! The guide was responsible and dedicated. The Echoing-sand Dune and Crescent Lake impressed me most. It was a wonderful experience when I rode a camel to cross through the Echoing-sand Dune and reached the Crescent Lake. I heard different sounds while crossing, some liked a roar and some liked a whisper. The beautiful Crescent Lake was a moon-like and the Oasis in the desert. It was amazing that it had not been covered by the sand!
