Hi Sara!

Thank you for everything! We had a wonderful time in your 'Beautiful China'. I am sending a few pictures from our stay in Hangzhou and Suzhou. That's me with Daniel in Hangzhou at the Ling Yin Buddhist Temple site, the Impression West Lake Show:-) and Suzhou photos of Sebastian and me at the beautiful and serene Lingering Garden. I wish I could have met you during our trip but I feel that I know you.

The coordination and efficiency of China Tour Guide was excellent. The local guides were prompt and took care of us from start to finish. We didn't experience any problems with the China Tour Guide travel plans. Our only problem was with Air China and our luggage. Our bags were delayed in Beijing and didn't connect with us on our flight to Shanghai. We had to spend our first 2 days in the same clothes we wore on the flight from NY and we were hot. Our bags arrived before we left Shanghai so it all turned out okay.

Here are a few comments about the services you provided: Tour guides and drivers were excellent! All tour guides were very knowledgeable about their locations. We loved meeting people, our tour guides, from the cities we toured.

Hangzhou--Daniel was exceptional, really smart and sweet. Restaurant for lunch wasn't very good and we ordered extra food from the menu. Dinner restaurant was better since we were allowed to order from the menu. Hotel (West Lake Golden Plaza) was nice but the location was not convenient and took a long time in traffic.

Suzhou--Mike was extremely knowledgeable and taught us a lot about Suzhou. We had lunch at the silk factory and didn't enjoy the food. We ate in a separate room and Mike helped us order but the restaurant staff wasn't very friendly or helpful.

The train transportation went smoothly and it was a pleasant experience to ride with local people. The most important thing is that we visited the main attractions which was the purpose of our trip. My favorites were the Ling Yin Buddhist Temple park, the Impression West Lake Show and the Lingering Garden.

It's nice to have friends in China now. I am on facebook and have visited your account. I added a LIKE and viewed the beautiful photos. I'm not sure how to add you as a friend on the company account but will try to send you a friend request. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends who plan to visit China.

Thank you again!
