Regarding our trip in China, I want to say that it was very successful on all scales. It was very well organized from your side and all the people (drivers, tour guides) were very helpful and nice. You all did great job.

Tour guides: they were all very nice and friendly. We liked them all.

Drivers: the same. they are nice and friendly.

Accommodation: in general, they were also fine. there are some very small issues but they do not matter. In the end they are all 3 stars hotels.
