We are back home and recovering. Carmen went down with flu after we got back from Johannesburg, but is getting better.
Firstly, let us say many, many thanks for organising our holiday trip through China. It was fantastic and really interesting because everyone was there for us providing us with support, information and assistance. Your guides were wonderful and in particular Zoe in Xian.
We will happily endorse your company for clients who need a reference or comment.
All of the best for the future.

Good Morning Molly,
I had a great time thank you and will give you feedback on all the various aspects of the trip for future clients.
...The Hotel was great, in a wonderful location and the staff were as helpful as they could be with their limited English.
The day tours were also good and the English speaking guides very informative.I just loved The Great Wall which we visited in the pouring rain!! Climbed the 900 steps...but the wonderful thing was that there were no people at the top!
The only disappointment was that I never got to even see Tianammen Square.I could have visited on the day I arrived but was told it was on the tour. I asked both my guides if we could drive past, but they both ignored me. It also didn't even feature on my City map which I thought was a little strange.I know it is sensitive to the Chinese, but it is part of your history.
I have to say I was a little surprised to be sharing with 3 others, both men and women! Their was no food on the train either, so it was all quite an experience for me.
The Hotel was fantastic, they even gave me breakfast when I arrived early..it was modern and very central.Both guides Sally and Alisha was terrific.Visiting the Terracotta soldiers was one of the highlights of my trip.This part of the trip was without fault.
I was met at the Station by Maggie who was a delight. I then did a day tour of Shanghai that was also terrific. The second day I had Wang, but Maggie also came too!! So there was just me and the two young guides! They were lovely, brilliant English and such fun they were the best guides I had all trip. I actually loved the Water Town best as I love the old way of life in China. Just a point that I said to the Agency there. I had to insist on going to the French concessions (the small side streets,, not just the Bund) as apparently it isn't included on their itinerary. Although China has every right to be proud of what they have achieved in the past 10 years, they should not forget the past. European people are usually very interested in history of a country.
The biggest disappointment with Shanghai was the Hotel. There was nothing wrong with it of course, just that it was so far out of the city it made it impossible for me to go out and walk about after my tours.There was nothing nearby, just a small shopping centre. So I could do nothing in the evening. Maybe you should change this for future people.
Thank you for all your help Molly. I really did enjoy the trip. I am now back to winter in Australia which is rather cold after the lovely weather I had in China.

My son and I arrived home from China this morning and what a memorable time we had there thanks to the wonderful organisation provided by your company. The sites and sights were in all instances better than we had anticipated and the scale on which things are built and organised in your country is simply mind-boggling. The tour itself gave us a very good idea of what conditions would have been like for those who lived in the far-flung towns along the route as well as how difficult it would have been for the traders who made the hazardous journey to the west. We encountered sandstorms, rain in areas that were supposed to be dry throughout the year, winds of incredible strength, beautiful sunny days and were amazed at how people survived in the hostile Gobi Desert. We did the trip staying in superb 4 and 5 star hotels. Goodness knows what it must have been like for the pioneers along the Silk Road.
We were always met on time wherever we changed guides, the drivers were expert in the often chaotic traffic of China, our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming, our accommodation was well chosen, the meals were fantastic and the ambience created by the combination of all these factors made for an unforgettable and relaxed experience. Even the overnight train trips were an added adventure, a look at life in China on a different level.
Thank you for organising it all so expertly. To say that one recommends something wholeheartedly has become a bit of a cliché but my son and I unreservedly do so for this trip we have just enjoyed. The organisation and cooperation with you in the months prior to the trip were prompt and cheerfully efficient and nothing was left to chance on the journey. Thank you for all your help and should you wish to use this letter as a recommendation for your organisation please feel free to do so.
I will be back in China again at some stage, health willing. Your country fascinates me. If and when plans are hatched for the next trip you will be the first to know.
Thanks once again.
All the best,

We just arrived home after 19 days in China of which 13 days were a pleasure trip with DCT.
It was a long and hectic tour, and it was not easy for us, but it was worth every dollar and every moment of it.
I wanted to write my customer’s feedback in DCT’s website but I did not find the way how to do it.
I am attaching a word document with the text of my thank you review, that I wish will appear in DCT’s website/ customers’ feedback, under your name.
I also added all the hotels’ reviews, same text as I published in TripAdvisor (as I do for the last 3 years).
The first 2 reviews are the hotels I booked by myself, all the rest are the hotels you booked for us.
The best ones were Yangzhou resort and Capital Beijing hotel, the last in line to my opinion, was the Culture Plaza Hangzhou.
This way you can see my detailed opinion on each hotel.
Thank you again for everything you have done for us, we appreciate it very much!
I wish some day you will come to Israel and I will be able to help you out here!
Best regards, from our heart!

Dear Candy, or should say Dear Tong Li Xiang??
Thank you so much for your assistance in organising such a fantastic trip for Tina and myself. we just arrived home and we were just talking about how sensational our trip and experiences were.
All the guides, and drivers were all very professional and made out trip most enjoyable. We actually saw a lot more of China than what we expected, due to the recommendations of the guides.
I have attached a few pictures, and feel free to pass my email on to any prospective customers if you require any testimonial for your services, or place my testimonial on you website if you wish.
Again, thanks so much Candy, as you were my first contact in organising my trip and I always felt very comfortable dealing with you.

Dear Candy, we are back in Chile again. We stayed a few days in Santiago and arrived a few days ago in Pucon. We want to thank you very much for this magnificient tour trogh china, which you organized for us. Everything went well and I congratulate your company to this performance which you did in organizing the whole journey. The guides and the drivers did in all cities a very good job. We have been excepcionally happy with the services of the guide in Guilin, Joe who managed everythin very well despite the day when we had bad weather. I would recommend you to send him with some Chinese tourists to Europe. He can get on very well with foreigners!
We have been happy to travel trough China accompanied by your companies services.We will recommend you to friends, which in fact I have done already to a few, to whom I sent my travel report and fotos.
Attached I send you a foto which we took when we met you briefly.
