The trip was incredible!!! Everything was wonderful. Our guides in Beijing and Xian were wonderful, very eager to please, and went above and beyond the call of duty to do things for us. It was definitely a trip I will tell others to go on. You had everything organized perfect (too bad you don't organize trips for everywhere in the world)!

Speaking for myself, and my wife (and everyone else) we want to thank you for arranging such a fabulous trip. We had a wonderful time, and learned a lot. Everyone is very excited about the trip, and we appreciate all of the logistics that you put together.

Again, I want to thank you for your great work. You can be sure that we will recommend your services to other friends who want to head to Asia.

From beginning to end, the trip was flawless. Hotels were good 4-star or 5-star, clean, excellent restaurants and even entertainment. English-speaking guides ranged from good to incredible. Cars were comfortable and air conditioned. All restaurants were clean, service-oriented toward tourists and provided a good selection. We were just two of us and we really felt pampered by everyone we met.
Austin Zhu, with whom I had been dealing, was so remarkably responsive to my many, many e-mail questions that I marveled at his patience.

Our trip was a trip of a lifetime. And climbing the Great Wall is an experience never to be forgotten. I can highly recommend the three cities we visited - Guilin, Xian and Beijing - and I have no doubt that any other cities that we might have chosen to visit would have been equally fascinating. Unfortunately, our time was limited.

In closing let me assure you that I do not have shares in Asia Voyages. I just believe in giving credit where it is due. I do hope you enjoy your trip. If you choose to go through Asia Voyages, just sit back and enjoy!

Just want to say thank you for the work you did to make our China trip so memorable. It was even better than we expected. We saw so many inspiring sights that it’s hard to say which one we liked the best because many of them were very thought-provoking. What a marvelous country China is.

Everything was terrific - the guides, the food, the cities and sights, even the weather was perfect. Now how did you arrange that?! Thank you so much.

Dale and Diane Ebben (Sunfish Lake, MN)

Thank you for your professionalism and help. Our trip was fantastic. We enjoyed everything and everything went as we planned. I would not mind if you use us as a reference. We will contact you again for our next Asian voyage.

I just wanted to thank you for your work in setting up our China trip. We had a wonderful experience and now have wonderful memories.

Patti Louie (Beverly Hills, CA)

We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our tour of Beijing and Xian that we arranged with you. Everything was exactly as we hoped it would be. The hotels were very good, and we especially liked our guides and drivers. In particular, Wang Li, our guide in Beijing, was knowledgeable, personable, reliable and very friendly. He even checked to see how we were doing on the days we were on our own and not using his services. We felt very well taken care of.

Wenda Trevathan (Las Cruces, NM)

Greg and I just wanted to extend our thanks for what was the most incredible vacation of our lives. Everything went absolutely perfectly and all was wonderful. We arrived home two days ago and can not stop talking about it.

Sigrid Close (Boston, MA)

I meant to write sooner to say thanks! This is the first moment I had to write!

Dawn and I want to thank you for such a great trip in China! The whole trip was wonderful and the people we met were very special. I shot over 15 hours of video in China! I may even make a few 30-minute programs for our station on China. Everything was really great and each of our guides was knowledgeable and fun!

We had so many great adventures in China! The Great Wall beat any expectations by leaps and bounds. I had no idea that The Forbidden City is made up of so many courtyards! I always thought it was just one or two!

We were lucky enough to see a Panda eating at the Chongqing Zoo and to "go Native" (non-tourist restaurant or activity) at a Hot Pot restaurant. I don't know if you have ever eaten this style of food or if you grew up with it, so I apologize if I am being too basic and explaining something you have all the time. A Hot Pot is a table with a large-oil filled pot in the center (with two sections – Hot and Mild) and diners pick uncooked foods of their choice and add it to the pots. Our Gang of 7 drank far too much (not really that much) and laughed even more.

I could not list all the great adventures we had! Our drivers were excellent and brave!

I do not know if you have traveled very much in China. It is a very beautiful country. If you are able to see the Three Gorges area it is quite spectacular. The Xian Terra-cotta warriors are indeed the 8th Wonder of the World. As cities go, Shanghai is probably the most futuristic city I have ever been in. It is cleaner and newer than most I have ever been lucky enough to visit. They have the best architecture. I would move there in a minute if they didn't have such a hot climate. I really do not do all that well in humidity. It is very Western or European in feel, yet distinctively Chinese which is great! Beijing is marvelous! Linda Lihong in Beijing was almost (part of the) family by the end of the trip. She was so sweet and knowledgeable. All the others were great as well.

I may have mentioned, Dawn and I have been to Egypt. I think that China beats Egypt hands down in all respects (though the pyramids are very cool).

Thank you again for such a great trip! We will give your name to every one we meet who might want to go to China! I am recommending it to all my friends. I do not rave about all the trips I have been on.

David and Dawn Grunwell (Columbus, OH)

China was GREAT, AMAZING and really tremendous experience. It was more modern and westernized than we expected. WE also all enjoyed the villages and farming communities. The tour guides were all great and took good care of us, Especially Mr. Choo in Shanghai.

Austin, you did a GREAT job and we will be happy to refer friends to you. We have lots of stories and pictures. Seeing the history and ancient China was interesting, but Joel and I particularly enjoyed the China today. Riding the subways was real fun for us. This may be an option for people on tours. Of course, we were the only ones who did this, but we love cities. Take care.
