I just wanted to touch base with you, now that we are back from our trip. I can't thank you enough! You guys really did an amazing job. Of course any trip like this is expensive, but as I look at the accommodations, the huge amount of transportation, and all the meals and entry fees included in the package, I think it was an incredible value. I never stay in hotels that nice when traveling on my own!
I don't know if you are in contact with any of the guides, but they were all excellent, especially in Beijing, Xi'an, and Guilin. I think our guide, Eva (Ma Chien) in Beijing deserves special recognition, as she was just wonderful. She also took us to eat at places where the food was excellent, but mostly with locals rather than places full of westerners.
Also, I don't know how much discussion you have with your customers before they choose a package, but knowing what I know now, Guilin is a must! Probably most Americans know nothing about it, and we chose the package that included it almost as an afterthought, but it may have been the highlight of the whole trip. So it may be worth recommending to anyone who will listen.
Thank you so much! I will highly recommend you to anyone who is thinking about a trip to China.

It's Pam here, Baird Eaton's wife. We had such a spectacular adventure, and so enjoyed our China Discovery Tour. We saw so much and were so well taken care of. You all did a wonderful job setting up this fabulous tour.
You asked for some photographs with "us" in them. We do have some and you certainly have our permission to use them in your China Discovery promotions. Although it was my camera, it was our wonderful guides who took the photos of us together. The ones of Baird by himself, I took. I won't send them all in one e-mail so as NOT to overload your in-box. As you can see, some are "better" than others. Alas, there are no decent photos of us in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Also, you may certainly use our positive remarks on this trip. The best way we describe it ... "an epic adventure!"
Thanks Gloria ... and now to settle down here and get back to normal!

Hi Tselo, WOW!!! Tibet was a wonderful country. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into making our journey there great. Our stay in Lhasa was relaxing, very interesting and informative. Our guide, Li Dong and driver Mr. Mimi were excellent. We visited Potala Palace, Jang Monastery and Sera Monastery and saw a cultural folk dancing show with dinner on the last evening there. The return trip from Nepal to Chengdu, China was a good idea. The Crown Plaza Hotel was very nice and quite elegant. We were pleasantly surprised that Chengdu was such a clean, modern, westernized city. We took the opportunity to visit the panda exhibit before our flight to Beijing. It was a clear, beautiful day and the park like facilities enclosing the pandas, plus the rose garden, were another pleasant surprise. Again, thank you for all the work you did to make this Tibetan trip happen.
Appreciatively, David & Carolyn Coughran

Lilian Darling Holt - Hidden Springs, CA
"We just returned from our China trip on July 2nd. I must tell you the experience was memorable. Each individual of our group shares the same feelings. Upon arrival in Beijing, we had no idea of what to expect as to accommodations. I have stayed in many hotels, but few if any could compare. My expectations were exceeded many fold. I want to extend a special thanks to our Tour Guides in Beijing and Shanghai. They certainly made the trip interesting and exciting, and deserve more than our thanks."
Daniel Carlburg - Anaheim, CA

"Our tour of 23 members just returned on Saturday from a 15-Day Tour, which was booked with your office. All of our questions were answered in a timely manner, which, I believe, is important. On behalf of Dr. T. K. Lin and the members of this tour, "thank you" for a well-planned and memorable trip to China. Our accommodations were first-class, the local sight-seeing tours and guides in China were very informative, and mainly, your tour cost was affordable. It was a good thing that we were fortunate to book with you. Everyone has expressed a desire to return. If we do so, we will certainly utilize your company."
Mary Albao - Harbor City, CA
"This was our first travel tour and it could not have been a more pleasant experience. The CDT staff provided prompt responses to all of our nervous questions and worries. Jeff Adkins provided updates and assurances that our tour would be enjoyable (he was right). CDT will have a part in any future travel tours we plan. Thank you CDT for a fantastic China tour."
- P. Enriquez, Rancho Cordova, CA
"I just returned from a trip with China Discovery Tours based in Torrance, CA and had a fantastic time. The positive aspects of the trip were the company's responsiveness to questions we had pre-departure and the organization of guides. Hotels were great and meals were excellent! I would highly recommend CDT."
- V. Rhodes, San Diego, CA
China Discovery Tours, from the beginning, was the best tour company with whom I have ever planned a trip.
My contact with CDT was with a young man named Steven Ravine....the best!!! He was always available and eager to make my trip planning a fun and exciting experience. He never hesitated to go the extra mile. I strongly recommend Steven as your representative from CDT...you won't be disappointed. My CDT trip to China and Vietnam was great from the planning with Steven to the accomodations, sightseeing and the funloving, knowledgeable guides within both countries. They all put forth every effort in trying to accomodate any special wishes. CDT has much to offer and they are very reasonably priced. I STRONGLY recommend this company.

As far as the service in the different hotels, it surpassed what I expected. Tibet is a different world, however, the people are very friendly and we did not encounter any problems. Service at the hotel was great and the guide was excellent. We are very pleased by the way that the tour was conducted."
