Thanks for all your hard work putting our trip together. We did a lot, and were really tired when we returned home, but were able to really see a lot of southern China is a short amount of time. Li River Cruise and Jade Mountain were the most memorable attraction we visited.
All five guides were excellent, but Jenny (Guilin) and Li (Lijiang) really stood out. We would enthusiastically recommend China Highlights based entirely on the quality of your guides. We were interested in culture rather than shopping (which we made clear before the start of the trip), and all guides were informative, told us a lot about daily life, and never pushed shopping or steered us to any areas.
All hotels were fine, but all beds were hard. (We graded the Xishuanbanna hotel hard because of the beds, but then found out they were all hard). We also did not realize that a standard bed would be two single beds and not a queen. Meals were all excellent, and we never got sick.
It was nice of Lisa to bring the arc-welding glass so that we could view the annular eclipse in Dali. All of the guides were right there at the airport to meet us, logistics were perfect. The markets (Steve took us to Jinghong, and Lisa to a country market outside Dali). The flexibility of our guides (Lin worked around a traffic jam to allow us to see sights despite congestion and several guides asked us if there were anything in particular we would like to do extra). All these are surprises for us.
The tour was great in the winter, weather was mild and there were no crowds. We can’t imagine how noisy, crowded, and touristy Lijiang would be in the summer!
