Your Add On:


Dear Choury and Billy,

Thank you soooooooooo much for the wonderful planning you have done for us. We have not had any problems with our trip, and we have been so grateful to you both for your kindness to us throughout the tour. We appreciated the messages your sent, and the way you responded so quickly to all the emails and texts.

When we arrived in Shanghai, we were upgraded to an executive suite. That was a real luxury for us, and a big surprise. We have enjoyed looking around this vibrant city and had a lovely meal on our second to last night at a place called M Restaurant on the Bund, with the spectacular views you can see below.

I do hope that we can keep in touch. You seem more like a friend to us than a guide planner! Bruce and I wish you and Billy all the best with your work, and we hope lots of other people get to hear of your thoughtfulness and care of people.

Goodbye for now, and thank you again, dear Choury and Billy. We will be off to New Zealand tomorrow, but will think of you often. This has been an amazing trip.
