Hello Allan,

The Li River Cruise was so exciting. The Li An Lodge was excellent, and its rooms were so individual and elegant-looking. From the room my family and I enjoyed a spectacular view of the minority celebrating their harvest with torches all over the mountain. Plus, I love the Ancient Zhuang Village so much. It was a fairyland every inch. We would sure come next spring to see the glossy ponding rice terraces.

Million thanks.

Hi Sara,

I have appreciated a great deal you professionnalism since November 2011 while preparing the extension part of our trip in China. I was very pleased about the fact that you did all you could to contact us for the Shanghai/Guilin flight time change. Also I was happy talking to you in Yangshuo when we asked for a "western style" meal !!!

Concerning the whole package you organized for us I can say that we were very satisfied about eveything. In Guilin and Yangshuo, Jennifer was very nice with us. She did all she could to please us. In spite of the bad temperature the day of our arrival and the next one, we found Guilin, the Li river, Yangshuo and its countryside wonderful, and the show absolutely extraordinary.

Be sure Sara that I will stay in contact with you and, as a matter of fact, I might do it soon for some friends who would like to visit China in 2013.

Best regards,
