Dear Nancy, I am so glad that I chose you as my travel advisor to plan our Guizhou trip. I really enjoy all interesting things happened in Guizhou. The miao people there were very kind to us. Kaili is a great window to see minority culture, and the Alex was very helpful for our trip.

I’ll come again to visit Tibet in future. Thank you for your great help.

Dear Sara, For my fantastic Guizhou tour I’d like to say a huge thank-you here. I want to tell all my friend about this tour, the sister festival was very interesting and I have seen many many exotic things that attract me a lot. And I have been to Beijng and Shanghai before, but I would say Guizhou is a more charming destination. Also I made friend with Ben and Jack from Canada through the trip, LOL, I have uploaded lots of amazing photos in my facebook. You wanna see?

The tour was totally worth the price and your service even went beyond my expectation. Million thanks!
