    I was pleased with the Dunhuang tour. The itinerary and attractions were of high quality. The Mogao Grottoes was my favorite.

    I remembered those exquisite murals and statues clearly. Taking photos was prohibited in the grottoes but there were equal scale replica grottoes of 45 Mogao Grottoes in the Dunhuang Museum where photography was allowed.

    The driver was enthusiastic and kind and picked us up on time. Dunhuang was small but clean, especially with well-planned tourism. Several scenic spots could be visited in an orderly manner. I wanted to travel to Dunhuang next time!
