Dear Nancy, I’m back in America yet my thoughts are all about the pretty good tour guides, hotels, restaurants and spots of the tour. I think I really enjoyed every moment with them.

I’d like to clap my hands more for the cute exotic restaurants you recommended. Every inch of them came with Xinjiang tone. Besides, I had great luck to have all those enthusiastic tour guides all along my path in Xinjiang. They were terrific.

I’ll come again to taste more adorable Xinjiang in future. Thank you for your great organization and help.

Dear Sara, For my fantastic Xinjiang tour I’d like to say a huge thank-you here.The travellings went so smooth around Kashgar, Urumqi and Turpan. Though sometimes we got to face bumpy situations, our drivers never let us down. The same it was with our thoughtful guides. My little girl didn’t feel that well at first in sweltering outskirts of Turpan, but with the caring guides and the protective tools they brought along, she was fine then.

I love most spots in my tour. They showed me bulks of knowledge about Xinjiang that I’d never known before. By the way, I enjoyed Turpan grapes particularly. The tour was totally worth the price and your service even went beyond my expectation. Million thanks!
