Hi, Michelle,

thank you very much for considerate arrangement for me and my wife. The bus tour saves us lots of money and time in Chengdu, cause I found few people in Chengdu could speak English. The guide Tracy is very nice, she took us to taste very local food of Chengdu, it was so pity that I can not eat spicy food. Panda, leshan buddha, face performance...is very interesting and exotic to us. We had great time in China, thanks again.
