  • Yes, Renee we are back home. The tour was so well organised, we are most appreciative. All the arrangements were truly seamless. We never had to worry about tickets. The driver was always punctual and reliable. We always felt we were in safe hands. Our guides were all extremely professional and knowledgeable. Joe was very personable and a good sport with the kids. He even went to the trouble of printing a souvenir photo of us at Stone Forest! Danny was super passionate about local Tibetan culture and this made the tour more enjoyable. At times I felt there was a little too much information for us, but the kids were fully engaged so it was worthwhile. There was just the right amount of time spent travelling each day. We covered a lot but not too much. All the places we visited were interesting and we learnt a lot. There was just the right amount of walking for us. It was not too rushed.

  • Perfetta organizzazione! Siamo 12 amici ed abbiamo organizzato il nostro viaggio fra Sichuan e Yunnan con questa agenzia cinese trovata navigando su Internet, Ottimi autisti e brave guide, organizzazione perfetta. Molto bravi tutti, un piccola preferenza però per la nostra guida, Doyle, nella zona Kumming, foresta di pietra e terrazze di campi di riso, con il quale abbiamo avuto una particolare sintonia. Ma in verità tutte le guide sono state attente e simpatiche. La nostra refente Renee, ha organizzato il viaggio perfettamente, ci siamo scritti varie mail, noi in italiano, lei rispondeva in inglese, sempre puntualissima e chiara. Ci ha aiutato anche in un piccolo contrattempo a fine viaggio, anche se non era sua competenza. Affidatevi a questa agenzia!

  • Travel around Yunnan, represented by Renne, proposed a 1st draft of the trip that we, then, amended. The program was fine tuned together with Renee. She finally assigned a driver and different guides, arranged train tickets when necessary and booked the hotels we chose. We paid 70% in advance and the balance during the trip, which seems totally fair. We visited Shangri-la, Lijiang, Shaxi, Dali, Kunming. One week is short but we got a great overview of Yunnan. The selection of restaurants is at 90% spot on, the guides were super competent and friendly. Hiking, visits of Temples, cities old towns, grottos, monasteries... all that was fantastic! Yunnan has an astonishing nature, marvellous landscapes, and overwhelming cultural elements of the so called minorities (Tibetan, Bai, Nahki,...). Don't miss it. We had a great time there.
