I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for organising an excellent tour for my family and me. We enjoyed our holiday tremendously.
We found our guides, Vivian and Cindy to be excellent. They were very friendly, polite and had an excellent command of English. They were very knowledgeable on the history of the sites and provided added value by also providing us a perspective of the culture and lifestyle of the local people. They both went out of their way to take care of our needs during the trip. They were very helpful in answering our questions and also assisted us tremendously during our meals by ensuring the staff of the restaurants adhered to our dietary requirements. As I had my 80 year old mother with me, they were very considerate of her requirements, encouraging her to rest and making sure she was safe during the trip.
All in all we had a very pleasurable time in Beijing and Xian. We will definitely be visiting China again. On our next trip we hope to visit some scenic sites. I would also like to see either the Yang Tze Kiang or Hwang Ho river!
I also would like to thank you for acting very fast in making the late changes I requested to the itinerary at Xian. All in I found LilySunTours to be very professional and efficient. I will certainly use your services on my next trip and will definitely recommend you to my friends and relatives.
Once again, thanks very much for making my familys holiday such a pleasurable and memorable experience!!!!!
And thank you so much for your thoughtful gift for us. We are enjoying the tea very much!
We liked Jackie a lot. He was honest, open minded, entertaining, attentive, high spirited, and talkative (knowledgeable) in terms of history.
We also liked Vivian in the different way. She was straight forward about the condition of the location as well as the history/knowledge in general aspect. She was also very creative in taking memorable photo poses. She was helpful and patient when she had to accommodate our requests.”
