Thank you for your mail. First of all, I would like to congratulate you with the smooth organization of the tour, everything went smoothly according to planning. I can imagine this is not an easy task to organize from Guilin, considering the distance and complexity of the trip we made. I also appreciate your flexibility in putting together the program entirely according to our desires.
For the different parts of the trip:
- Xian: we had a good balance between the scheduled sights and free time to spend. The location of the hotel was good, so it was possible to go to the center by ourselves. One remark, we were transferred to the train station at 6am for a train leaving at 8am. The station was less than 15 minutes away from the hotel. We should have had 45 minutes more to take breakfast (which was served from 6:00am on) rather than having to take a package from the hotel. I understand you do not want to take any risk of missing the train, but 2 hours seems to be a bit too much…
- Tianshui to Lanzhou: our guide managed very well to reschedule the visits a bit, putting all visits in Labrang and Bingling Si in the same day. This way we had no negative impact from the traffic accidents we saw on the way, which blocked to road for some time. Lanzhou is a very difficult city to drive into. Maybe a hotel in another city would have been better? We spent a nice morning in Lanzhou visiting the hillside pagoda, but unfortunately the museum was closed so we ended up in the railway station again 2 hours before departure… In Xiahe, the grasslands were not very interesting (probably due to the season). Maybe there would have been more interest to visit another monastery or temple in Xiahe or in the neighborhood.
- Jiayuguan – Dunhuang: nice schedule, the addition of the Yulin grottoes was a very good idea from your part, even if we had to wait for over one hour before they opened (and it was very cold). After the visit to the Mogao caves, we left to the railway station quite early, again having to wait for over 2 hours in the station before the train left. Given the site of the railway, a flight to Turpan could have been a better alternative maybe?
- Turpan-Urumqi: this was the only part where the guide service was disappointing. The general attitude of the guide was one of obvious disinterest for his guests, as he was spending more time looking at his cellphone than looking at us. We only started visiting in the afternoon of the first day in Turpan and then had very little time, especially at the Gaochang site. The attitude of the local staff with the electric carts was quite impolite. We would strongly have preferred to go around by bicycle to explore this nice site. We especially enjoyed the marvelous landscape around Bezeklik and the flaming mountains. Maybe a more extended programme around Turpan would have been better. The hotel in Urumqi gave the real “end of China” experience on the silk road, as did the Grand bazaar, we really felt like being in central asia.
- Yinchuan: our guide there was really very good, caring and very attentive to his clients. We really appreciated the rock carvings and Western Xia tombs site, they are really worth while. The 108 pagodas were nice, but the long trip to Shapotou was not so interesting. As we had already seen the sand desert scene in Dunhuang, this was not worth the long journey. Maybe a site closer to Yinchuan (like the Ming great wall) would have been a better suggestion.
Overall, it was a very good trip and we really had a comprehensive Silk Road experience. As it was a great journey, it is clear that some travel efforts are inevitable in such trip. I will certainly recommend your services to other people and contact you again if I plan another holiday in China.

We had a very enjoyable holiday in China and saw a lot of very interesting places. It really was a journey of life time in a part of China that not everybody gets the opportunity to see. We travelled by car, bus , overnight train, motorbike, camel and horse ! - so it was a bit of an adventure. We saw deserts in Gansu and Alpine pastures in Yunan and the grasslands of the Tibetan Plateau. We saw some amazing sights and scenery. It was all very memorable.
You organized our trip very well - and everything worked like clockwork. The appointed guide was there to meet us at each stop be it an Airport or Railway station. The hotels varied - some were excellent some not so good like the one at Labrang (Labulang Civil Aviation Hotel).
The guides were generally very good good - Noor ( Urumqi), Peter (Lanzhou/Xiahe) and Thup Ten (Shangri La) were particularly excellent and outstanding.
Overall it was a great experience and we would recommend others to use your company and we too would use your company again.
What you promised - you delivered and everything worked very smoothly.
Thanks & Best regards,

We returned safely home yesterday. We have really enjoyed this exceptional travel to Silk Road in China, discovering a lot of marvelous monuments, but also the Chinese culture.
This will be an unforgettable travel for us, which has been perfect due to your fundamental assistance and the competence of the guides. Definitely, we will travel again with you in the future to Tibet, Sichuan or other parts of China and Asia. Some colleagues and friends have asked me about your contact, so, may be in the future you have new Spanish tourists!
Once again, many thanks for your help
See you in the near future

Hi Jossie, I enjoyed my trip very much. Thank you so much for arranging everything. I will use your company in the future for any organized trip I might need! :)
The guide Mandy was very friendly and very knowledgeable. She called my hotel the night before to arrange the pick up time the next morning, just like you said she would. She seems to genuinely enjoy showing off her city to travelers. And it was very interesting when she shared some glimpses of her day to day life in Dunhuang as well.
The driver was also very friendly and polite.
All in all, I must say your tour exceeded all of my expectations.
Thank you again! :)
Much love, Julia Smith

I am fine, how are you? Yes, I am back home already. The trip to Xinjiang was great, thank you very much for helping with everything.
Everything on the tour was great, from the hotels to the meals. The tour guide and driver were really great too. Overall, the trip was really fun and a great
learning and cultural experience and I also liked the fact that the chosen restaurants allowed me to have a taste of Uygur cuisine. I have no complaints at all.
Thank you very much for all your help and time, they were also immensely helpful. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to check in during the tour.
thank you again.

We had a memorable time in your country. The organization of the entire trip was excellent. The guides like Sara, Phoebe, and Feifei are great assets for your company. They did a wonderful job.
A small area to improve. As my wife was/is vegetarian it would have been great when making the booking for the domestic flights you could advise the airline that the passenger requires vegetarian food.
The hotels, breakfast, lunch and dinner were good. The cruise was nice and relaxing. Overall I would rate the experience 9/10.

We're home! We're also exhausted, so I will not write the "real" letter now. I just want you to know that we arrived home safely.
The trip was WONDERFUL! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The hotel in Lhasa was just perfect for us as it was in the Xinjiang section; the upgrade hotel that you arranged for us in Xi'an was Paradise. We feel so fortunate that we connected with you to make arrangements for our trip.
I will write more after some sleep!
