Hi Elaine! We just got back home from our fantastic China trip! It exceeded any expectations we had. The tours, arrangements, hotels and guides were all great. I would like to pass on special thanks to a few of the standout people we met or had contact with regarding this trip. Firstly, Vivi Chen, she was excellent at taking care of us during the booking of the trip. She answered all our questions, built up my trust, and arranged a trip that we will never forget. Finally, Sophie in Shanghai! Wow, she was a real standout, we were both impressed by her knowledge and love of her city. Please let her know we had a great time with her and would request her services any time we are in Shanghai. Thank you again for your excellent services, we were unsure about booking a trip on the internet.
