Dear Molly,

My husband got the cold too, but we're almost 100% recovered now :)

I wanted to meet you but the Gary told us you are at the Guillin office.

Thank you very much for arrange everything perfectly for us. We enjoyed and liked every place we've visit in China.
Gary is an excellent guide, he has a nice vibe, it was a fun trip.

Thanks for the pictures.

Best regards
Rosangela

Dear Candy,

Once again I would like to thank you for your effort in putting together a truly wonderful tour of China for the seven of us.  We enjoyed every minute of it, were impressed with how smoothly everything went, and enjoyed each of the guides who  were right there at the gate to greet us at every city.
 
Gary, in Beijing, was very helpful and knowledgeable and has a strong interest in history.  He was interested in our grandfather's story so I plan to send him a copy of our grandfather's book.  He also went out of his way to help us with the bank.

 

Guilin was extraordinary and Joe made sure everything went smoothly!  We so loved the trip down the Li River looking at an "ocean of mountains" all around us.  Joe spent several extra hours that evening walking us around the lake, making sure we were surprised by the largest man-made waterfall.   The next day, he  led us on long walks among the rice terraces, right up until dinner time, and then showed us several movies about the Japanese atrocities that evening.

 
In Shanghai, Darren strongly encouraged us to get tickets to the acrobatic show.  He worked very hard to convince us by describing it as "jaw dropping."  We relented and every one of us was thrilled with the show.  It was like nothing we had ever seen before--truly remarkable.  Darren was exceptionally helpful in Shanghai when we were trying to locate family buildings.  We found the Hongde Church which had been built in memory of our great grandfather after he had died.  The volunteers at the church welcomed us so warmly and called the pastor who came right over to meet us.  It turns out she was doing a thesis on the history of the church and on our great grandfather!  She brought us copies of papers she had found which were about his work in China.  It was a wonderful moment for all of us.  Darren also accompanied us to the airport for our departure and stayed with us until the three of us had checked in.

And in Huangshan, truly the highlight of the entire two weeks, Gerry was tireless in making sure that we saw the best of everything.  He spent hours guiding us along the magnificent paths after we had checked into the hotel, even waking up at 5am to make sure all of us took the 40 minute hike to see the sunrise.  Morning, noon, and night, all of the guides in every one of the cities we were in, took good care of us and were informative about the sights. 

 


The hotels were exceptional and all of the meals delicious.  Thank you so much for that delightful dinner we shared with you in Guilin.  I felt badly that you left your family and shortened your vacation in order to dine with us.  We certainly enjoyed meeting you.  

Thank you, Candy, for working so easily to meet our varying needs.  You responded immediately to each of our requests, customizing the trip so that we could spend most of our days together.  The group who went to Lushan thoroughly enjoyed their time there, and again, especially enjoyed their guide.  And I want to say once again how touched we were when Gary hopped out of the car to run into the bakery to pick up the birthday cake you had ordered for Paul.  You thought of everything!!

 

My only suggestion is to ask if there is any way of avoiding some of the factory sights where we assume the guides might get a commission if we make purchases?  I think all of us would prefer to be able to choose which ones we might be interested in and perhaps give the guide an extra tip if we choose not to go to a certain factory.  None of us wanted to buy jade--way too expensive.  The "tea ceremony" was no ceremony, just a chance to taste the tea and then pressure to buy it.  The silk factory was indeed interesting and I think most of us were interested in and could afford to buy something in silk.  The problem with these visits is that the guides end up rushing us through something we came to China to see in order to spend one and one half hours seeing something that we don't really want to see.  I think all of us would have preferred to have had some time to shop on our own in the markets in the various cities and villages.  I would love to hear your thoughts about this.

Can you send me your supervisor's email so I can let him know how happy we were with your help?  

In great appreciation,
Janet Butler

Following is Janet Butler wrote to our manager Mr. Tan:


Dear Tan Qiuxin,

I wanted to let you know what a fantastic job Candy did organizing our tour.  I worked with Candy for a couple of months to organize the trip for 7 of us.  She did a phenomenal job and her trip was considerably cheaper than one of your competitor's, China Highlights.  Candy responded promptly, she listened carefully to what we wanted as the group needed  to go in two different directions at one point.  She noticed that we would be arriving in Beijing on my husband's birthday and asked our tour guide to have a cake from the bakery for us.  He did and we enjoyed it immensely.  She found wonderful guides for us at all of our stops.  When she found out some of our family history (our grandfather had been instrumental in helping to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of  Chinese during the Japanese invasion of Nanjing), she contacted the director of the Museum of the Japanese Atrocities in Nanjing and he personally escorted us around the museum.  Candy shortened her vacation with her parents in order to have dinner with us in Guilin right before we flew to Nanjing.  
We had the trip of a lifetime and I cannot thank Candy and Discover  China Tours enough for such a wonderful trip.  We will write strong recommendations for the company on our US Trip Advisor which a lot of people use when planning a trip.

Thank you,
Janet Butler

Dear Candy,

I am sorry I haven’t written you sooner. After getting backfrom our two-weeks in China and one week in Japan trip, I have been busypreparing for my open studio art exhibit.  I had a problem trying to retrieve my China pictures on my digital SD card. I was finally able to download my pictures of the trip including your picture.

When my husband and I chose the Discover China Tours on the web, we were hoping it would be the right choice. But as soon as we started our correspondence with you, we knew we had made the right choice. You provideda thoughtful and detailed schedule base on our requests, and your very quick responses to our requests were very helpful. We were glad to choose a customized tour. The hotels we stayed in were very nice with contemporary ambience and good service,and the transportation went smoothly.  We also want to thank you for providing us with very friendly professional guides at each city. They paid attention to details for our safety and they were flexible to our requests. They even tried to help us choose alunch menu to satisfy our eating taste. Over all, we enjoyed our trip very much and we came back with good memories and a thousand photographs. Our primary purpose of this trip was visiting ancient cities to observe arts, historicaltemples, and museums. But we also briefly experienced the contrasts between arapidly changing modern urban life style and the traditional old culture inChina. People we met were very friendly, especially young people. We were gladto have some chances to talk with them. Unfortunately, the air pollution in Beijing and Shanghai was rather strong.

We were very happy to see you in person at Guilin. We congratulate you on your excellent work and the staff you work with. Thank you very much again for arranging a memorable China trip.

Dear Molly

We had a wonderful visit and now, I am genuinely happy to write a letter on behalf of our group.I rarely find myself wanting to sit down and writing a letter of recommendation for a guide, but Nancy is exceptional.

We are experienced travelers and happily use local guides, but even with that,Nancy exceeded our expectations!

She communicates constantly with you and answers any questions you might have regarding the trip, she is honest a decent lady.

Nancy has brought China’s rich history and culture to life for our group carefully designing programs to meet our interests and needs.
Nancy brings her country’s rich story to life, through her warm personality and her broad knowledge of China’s history, archeology, varied religious traditions past and current natural wonders, and simply of the way people live in this vibrant and diverse nation.
Her lively narration is enriched by stories from her own life, which mirrors the development of the country she loves.

She was extraordinarily personable, very knowledgeable and informative and spoke excellent English. Our limited time in Shanghai was very pleasant and productive because of her help. I recommend her and would be happy to answer any questions.

Best Regards
Ady Shani

Dear Candy,

The three of us from California all arrived home safely and without major delays.  I haven't heard yet from my cousins back east but I trust they are now home, after staying in China a little longer than we did to visit Suzhou.

Thank you so much for a wonderful China experience and such helpful, knowledgable guides.  we had so many beautiful and historic places to visit in such a short period of time.  

We were so pleased to be able to meet you for lunch in Guilin, and thank you so much for the lovely fan and silk bag (for my Ipad mini!).  Although I enjoyed every city and historical site, I think my favorite places were Guilin and Longshen, Lushan/Kuling ( memories of my mother) and Huangshan.

I will be sure to recommend you and Discover China Tours to anyone I know considering a trip to China.

Zai jian and thank you,

Aleda Lella
