  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    L, Poulin

    I just would like to let you know that I am really, really enjoying China so much that I do not want to go back to Canada. My tour guide (a very beautiful lady) is so nice and so thoughtful all the time. My driver ( I want to take him home with me) is so professional looking and handsome. He wears a suit and a hat and I like a man in a suit. He speaks very softly and he resembles “Gangnam Style”.

    Thank you, thank you and many more thank you for the trip of my dream.
