    We were satisfied with the accommodations and it was a pity that we climbed the Mt. Laoshan on a rainy day (drizzle). But our explorations of other attractions were not bad. Special thanks to the tour guide for the vivid and interesting explanations and attentive services throughout the trip.

    On this Qingdao tour, private packages to Mt. Laoshan, the service of restaurant, accommodation, tour guide and driver were rated as five-star. The guide was humorous and knowledgeable. Our driver supplied the best service. He was also considerate and gave us much assistance. Well, although they had changed cars for us twice due to emergencies, we all thought it was not a problem, and they sincerely apologized to us! Giving them my thumb-up for their rigorous and modest work attitude!
