|Tamar and I would like
to also thank you for arranging a most interesting and
rewarding trip for us. I would say that the arrangements
worked out just fine.
The exceptional experiences included: The Palace Hotel
in Beijing, the Imperial Lunch in Beijing, the Great
Wall, Shanghai and our guide there, Zhu, and especially
the cruise down the Li River and the stay in Yangshuo.
Again our thanks for all your efforts on our behalf,
and we would be most wiling to recommend you to others.

|Things we liked most:
Group Size: small group of nine turned out to be splendid.
Also we were very lucky to have the 4 young men who
were sophisticated travelers and whose taste was similar
to ours. Sometime we could even change our itinerary
with the local guide.
Local Guides: for the most part, all were excellent.
Most were open and very informative. All spoke English
well. Being picked up and the airport dropped off,
etc, spoils you. Checking in to the airports was hassle
Hotels and Food: Excellent hotels, very good food
for the most part. We had heard many stories how bad
the food is in China--not so for us (we had a meal
here and there that was not up to par--but only a
Air Travel: Air travel in China was much better than
anticipated. Airports were new, planes were new, and
only one flight was delayed.
River cruise--I liked the 3 little gorges especially.
The cruise was the high point for our children.
Hotel Breakfast: The breakfast at the hotels was
superior to anything in US with a lot more variety
Everything considered, was a splendid trip. You arranged
everything very well. The information you gave us
in our packages was excellent. Thank you again.
Amos Stoll and family (Miami, FL)
We had a great time on our recent trip. Everything
went like clockwork. Thanks for your help in the preparations.
Dave. Greene (Somerset, PA)
Thank you very much for arranging everything so nicely.
We thoroughly enjoyed it all. I'm still amazed we
finally got there.
Sandra Brown (Los Angeles, CA)
Everything ran like clockwork. The guides were waiting
for us at each airport with signs; checked us into
the hotel; were extremely punctual meeting us to go
sightseeing; reconfirmed our outbound flights; and
assisted with check-in. The flights were all on time;
the planes were modern and clean; many of the airports
were almost brand new; and there were signs everywhere
Vaughan and Solange Shalson (Oakland,
I want to tell you with all my sincerity that the
whole trip has far exceeded my expectation. I want
to congratulate CITS for all the high quality services
weve received and enjoyed during our entire
trip. All the guides are very helpful and attentive
of our needs, very informative of the history and
points of interest of each place we visited. Al the
transportations were excellent. All our accommodations
were certainly world-class, including all the restaurants
we stopped by for lunch. The cruise along the Yangtze
is simply awesome!
I intend to tell all our friends to book with Asia
Voyages, because we had a wonderful time on this trip,
and everything you booked for us is well worth the
Ed Low (Visalia, CA)
I just want to take a moment to thank you for the
wonderful trip Mrs. Tyrrell and I enjoyed to China.
It was GREAT!!! For the most part the hotels and food
were very good. China is amazing. I cant wait
to go back.
The purpose of my writing is to tell you what a wonderful
holiday my wife and I had in China.
Starting with Shanghai and the history and elegance
of the Peace Hotel right on through to Beijing, we
thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Our time on the Yangtze River aboard the M/S East
Queen was something that will be in our memories forever.
The whole Yangtze River experience was superb.
Thank you for your help arranging the journey. When
we travel in that direction again, which I hope will
happen someday, we will again seek your assistance.
We are most grateful,
Yours very truly,
Ben Newlander (Beverly Hill, CA)
Our trip to China went beautifully. Our only regret
is that we didnt have even more days.

My husband and I would like to thank you for the
excellent trip arrangements that you made for our
trip through China, Mongolia and Russia. We were extremely
pleased with all of our arrangements. One of your
contacts who was most helpful was Terry Tong at Unicorn
Travel in Hong Kong.
Unfortunately, my passport with the entry visa was
accidentally chopped while the Sky Princess ship was
in Shanghai even though our party of four had told
the ships immigration officer that we would
stay on board ship while we were in Shanghai. Upon
arrival at the Hong Kong Airport for our flight to
Xian, I discovered what had happened. We got in touch
with the Unicorn Travel, and Terry was able to locate
a hotel room for my husband and me. Terry began working
on our situation immediately. She was able to tell
us what we needed to do to apply for an emergency
visa for entry into China.
She faxed us directions to our hotel for our travel
to the Chinese Embassy. As soon as receiving my new
visa, we went to her travel agency where she helped
us make arrangements for a flight to Beijing. Terry
put in a lot of extra time after hours assisting us
when we were at loss as what to do. Unfortunately
my husband and I missed Xian which was the place I
wanted to visit. However, my brother and sister-in-law
had a wonderful time and were very pleased with your
arrangements there. Also, as soon as our guide for
Beijing, Sun Ya Xu, learned that my husband and I
were in Beijing, he made contact with us offering
any assistance as necessary. We were very appreciative
of him contacting us so quickly.
Needless to say all of our experiences on this section
of our trip through China, Mongolia and Russia were
very positive. All of our guides at our stops in Xian,
Beijing, Ulan Baatar, Irkutsk, Moscow, and St. Petersburg
were extremely friendly and caring. We enjoyed our
tours and time spent with them. Our trip into the
Gobi Desert and overnight stay in the traditional
ger was a great experience. So was our home stay in
Listvyanka village on Lake Baikal. We have brought
home many wonderful memories. We will certainly recommend
your company to all of our traveling friends, and
we will be in contact with Asia Voyages again in the
future as we plan on returning to China.
Thank you again for organizing such a wonderful trip.
Sherri and Gary Knight (Durango, CO)
We had great expectations when we left for our China
trip. Our expectations were more than exceeded! It
was a fantastic experience of which we will always
have fond memories.

Just a few lines to let you know that the trip was
outstanding, and to convey our thanks for your help
Bill & Irene Gyetvay
De Ivett and I returned yesterday after three great
weeks on your Best of China trip. The
small group size gave us a closer, more comfortable
environment for viewing. I feel very fortunate in
choosing Asia Voyages for this trip of a lifetime.
