Hi, Wenny,

We've been home now for a week and a half, and I have had the surgery which I was not looking forward to. But, now I would like to write that trip report for you.  Yes, indeed Tracey and I had a lovely time in China. We are the type of people who will make the best of a situation and after planning for over a year, we were certainly going to enjoy it. I am not a complainer by nature, so I do hope you take seriously what I have to say. Perhaps other travelers would be writing a scathing report, but I will keep to the facts and the resulting damages to our trip.

Upon arriving in Beijing we were greeted by our driver Mr. Wong, and taken to the car to load up the luggage. Ms. Lina shortly arrived (having been held up in traffic) and we were on our way. Mr. Wong knew exactly how to get to our hotel in the hutong. We passed impressive skyscrapers and admired the architecture. Already it was very pleasent. We came into the city by the North Gate and saw that beautiful  site. And, before we knew it we were at the hotel. Ms. Lina and Mr. Wong stayed with us until we checked in. She translated a bit for me and they took our luggage to the room. We planned on what time to meet in the morning. We were already liking our trip!

The next morning the driver and guide were there, even a little early, and we started off. We had already discussed what a long day it would be and therefore put off the Kung Fu show to another day.  No problem. I will say that I did expect someone who could speak English a bit better.  Ms. Lina was an English major, but many of her words were indeciferable. At first she spoke only to me, but after my repeating everything to Tracey and putting Tracey between us, she made a nice connection with her. Ms. Lina ia a very nice girl and very understanding, very professional. Sometimes she thought she was giving us too little information, but I assured her she was giving us enough to absorb. Everyday, we saw more beautiful things than the day before, the food was good, too, and Ms. Lina always looked after us. She loved to tell us Chinese folk stories and we loved hearing them.  Mr. Wong connected with us too. And, showed us pictures of his children. Everyday there was water in the car for us, and we did need it as the weather was warmer than we thought it would be.

So, everything in Beijing was going well. One thing that wasn't terrific was the dumpling lesson. We all thought it would be more, but the people at the house were too busy and expecting  300 people that day, so all we got to do was practice a bit with a rolled round of dough and pinching. For Tracey being a chef that was disappointing. Ms. Lina showed us pictures of dough making etc. etc., but we didn't experience that. The lady also told us to hurry with our lunches. We adjusted and it was an ''oh, well'' in our trip. (In raising my children sometimes we have an ''oh,no!'' and sometimes an''oh, well.'' so that is where that comes from).

  Sorry to say that on one day,my back hurt so much we called Mr. Wong to get us a little early, so we could go rest.  Just a little blip.  I think it is not a good idea to go to the glass plant house for lunch (near the wall) on really hot days.It was even too hot to eat in there. Another thing, for older folks ,is the walk up the mountain for the great wall. The walk to the shuttle, and then again to the cable car took over an hour and we hardly had any  energy to be on the Great Wall of China! It was magnificent though for the time we were on it!  (perhaps a car could take older peole to the base of the cable car...that would make it more bearable) We shopped a little and Ms. Lina made it a lot of fun with the bargaining.  We got pretty good at it.  Our free day was good, too. We had acquired enough confidence to venture out on our own.  We rented a boat on the lake, rode in an electric 3 wheeled vehicle, took a rickshaw ride, did some exploring, I got a

'street' massage, and we shopped. At the end of our time in Beijing we had a girl name Mary  escort us to the train station, since Ms. Lina had to get other people at the airport. No problem. Some of our favorite times in Bejing were hearing the folks singing their Mongolian song near the temple of heaven, and at the summer palace, a man letting Tracey use his big brush to make her caligraphy on the walkway. We will always fondly remember our trip to Beijing.

I am going to send you this part, and write about the Xian part later.

Sincerely, Pat Newhart😊

I was about to write you that we had amazing holiday. Yellow mountain was spectacular, but mt.Wudang was the top. We loved Mountain willa 33 and winderful housts Joe and Helena.
I know, we were a bit difficult customers, but you did a great job. You are the Dragon Tour Operator!
So you can tell your supervisor. I will send a pictures when we will be back home.
Thank you,

Hello Wenny,

Just a note to thank you again for all of the arrangements made, so that my husband and I could have a wonderful tour of China.  We enjoyed all of the cities on the tour, and appreciated having responsive and friendly guides and drivers.

Again, it was a trip of a lifetime to see and learn more about Chinese culture, landmarks, and people.  We left with a better understanding, respect and appreciation for all that China has to offer.

Best regards,
Elaine Nicol

Hi Wenny,
 
We arrived home safely yesterday.
 
I would like to thank you for your help in organising the trip. We really liked everything we saw and you have done a great job organising everything for us.
 
The tour guides were all very friendly and helpful. Mey was the best, she knows a lot and taught us a great deal about China's history.
The only thing we believe China Tours needs to take a look are the Hotels which are being used. It is not about lux or facilities, it's about having a clean room and clean toilet.
 
The hotels in Shanghai, Pingiao and Guilin were very good and we recommend.

Thanks again for showing us your beautiful country.
 
Cheers,
Daniel


Hi Wenny,
The tour is very nice, all of us are enjoying a lot. The change of the hotel in Xiang was essencial, because the other hotel was very bad and the New hotel is much better.
Since we still have 4 more hotels in the upcoming days, we would like to ask for your help to ensure that the quality of the future hotels is the same of this current one. Can you let us know if this can be done?

We are waiting for your reply.

Thank you,
Armando

Hi Wenny,
We wanted to tell you what a great trip we had.  Everything was absolutely perfect.  We got upgraded on the cruise to the suite wit a private balcony.  Felicia and William got upgraded also so we had the whole front of the ship to ourselves.  It was wonderful.  All of the tour guides were absolutely great except Morris in Shanghai.  He was a disappointment but the lady who took his place was fabulous.  One thing I would change is don't recommend the Holiday inn Airport.  We had to get up very early to get the shuttle and the planes flew all night keeping my husband awake.  It is better to stay at original hotel in luxury and plenty of time to get to the airport.  I understand why you did it but for future reference it was no comfortable because of the planes.  If you need me to write a review on the Internet please send me the link.  I will highly recommend you and your staff.  Everyone was great and everywhere we went was great.
 
We are going to Spain in December. If you can get us a discount on airfare we would use you we want to fly business class.
 
Thank you so much for making it a perfect holiday
