Dear Nancy,

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. 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!
