|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 its 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,
|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
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.

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
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
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
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,
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.
