Hi Grace,

We have just returned to Brisbane Tuesday of this week after a fantastic trip.  Please see my detailed comments below.  In summary, we are very pleased with the China Highlights package that you put together for us – everything happened as planned and without any problems at all. Thank you particularly for arranging our 2-berth compartments on the Beijing-Xian overnight train, which we much enjoyed. We were the envy of other travellers we met on the train, who simply couldn’t get such a compartment.

Great Wall at Mutianyu; Forbidden City are the most memorable attractiond we visited. Wallace in Xian was the most outstanding tour guide. Wallace has excellent English and really went beyond what might be expected to provide a very high level of professional service. He is in our view the best of your guides that we experienced. We also most enjoyed the Xian Citylion International.

There are lots of WOWs in our tour. The Great Wall (of course!); The Lesser Three Gorges tour (transfer to smaller vessel from Yangtze Cruise ship) – the river here is much cleaner and the scenery more spectacular than on the Yangtze itself.

An evening at the Beijing Opera is not to be missed. The Xian City Wall tour was a complete and pleasant surprise for its size and construction features. A tour of the Forbidden City is not to be missed (Western clients should first see the movie “The Last Emperor” for a useful background).

Thank you very much. I would be pleased to recommend you and China Highlights as a reliable and professional tour operator.
