China Tour

Comment from Mr and Mrs Boreham

23 Day Russia Waterways and China Silk Road, 27 August 2018

Dear Sarah,

We would like to tell you that the tour was excellent.

We liked the two in one organization for China then Russia.  A lot of tours are just 10 days which are too short for overseas travel. We could do linking up but often its tricky and we prefer not to. So we particularly like 3 to 4 weeks tours.

Although the Xinjiang province was difficult due to high police presence and checking we knew that would happen before we went so for us it was worth it to visit those amazing sites.

Also have to say all the guides were excellent. We didn’t spot any redcaps at the railway stations but the guides were more than helpful with the Urumqi guide even buying a ticket to take us on board.

We hadn’t previously visited Russia and thought it amazing. The Volga river trip was most interesting and very well organized. In fact all was well organized.

Thanks again for getting us past the typhoon and safely home.

You can take it as a compliment that we have agreed we would do that tour again/travel with your company again.

Kind regards

Maria and Bruce Boreham

13 Day China Yangtze River Cruise Tour, April 2017

Hi Sarah

My wife, Sonia and I recently returned from a 13 day ADT China tour and would like to thank ADT for the tour. We had a wonderful time and thanks to the ADT tour guides were able to see all of the major sites with very informative narrative.

We were part of a small group of 11 which was great because we got to know all of our group well and were always able to eat our meals together around one table. Great meals.

We are still amazed at how much we saw in a short time. 

Regards

Kevin and Sonia Fraser

Well, we are back in Melbourne from our China tour.  First of all, we would like to thank you for your assistance in the organization of this tour and making sure that we had a stress free holiday.

China is an amazing country proud of it's heritage and customs.  Tina, we were in awe of everything we saw, Tieneman Square, the Great Wall, the Terracotta soldiers and many more breathtaking wonders.

Our tour guides were all exceptional, flexible and sensitive to our needs.  A special mention and a big thank you must go to the tour guide we had in Xian and Beijing.  In Xian we had Kevin.  Kevin became more like a friend than a guide. His expertise and knowledge of the area was second to none, his personality and flexibility and concern for our needs not only made him an exceptional tour guide, but also a great person.

In Beijing we had Lili.  Lili also assisted us in every way possible.  She has a never say no attitude that compliments her personality.  Her knowledge of the area was also very good, taking time to always answer our questions.

15 Day China Tour with Majestic Yangtze, September 2015

To whom it may concern,

We have just returned from your 15 day ‘China Tour with Majestic Yangtze’ which left Australia 10 September (confirmation 15CYT0910).

We would like to say that the tour far exceeded our expectations and we would have no hesitation in recommending your tours to anyone thinking of travelling overseas.

The guides were thoroughly professional lovely people.  We had the most time with Kevin in Xian and Iris in Beijing as we had several days in each of these cities. They were both just lovely people. They kept us up-to-date with where we were going, times to meet, what to expect and we were particularly impressed with the consideration they gave to the older members of our trip.

Our accommodation, modes of travel and food were first class and the Yangtze cruise introduced us to China in a way we could not have imagined.

We were not only impressed with the trip, but any queries of ours and our travel agents were followed up promptly and thoroughly.

We look forward to travelling with your company again.

Thank you,

Yours sincerely

Doug and Rhyll Maloney.

My partner (Lovell) and I have recently experienced your tour of China and the Yangtze . We want you to know that we had a marvellous time and will not hesitate to use your company again.

 

The tour guides were excellent and were flexible, which meant they were able to avoid crowds, squeeze in a few extra sights and make the days suit our group.  Food was plentiful and meals were fun, intinerary such that I feel we didn't miss anything we should have seen and hotels very comfortable. Thank you for our holiday!

Comment from Maggie Grey

13 Ethnic Tour of Southern China, 17 Feb. 2013

Without hesitation I am pleased to tell you that the hotels chosen were all excellent. The guides were superb. The drivers were very impressive. I guess we were very fortunate just being a group of two, which meant we were chauffeured around in 8 seater vehicles, and on those high winding roads, these vehicles clung nicely to the roads. I would have been a little petrified in large buses.

The itinerary was great. We saw so much. It was a surprise to find we were usually the only Europeans travelling in the area. We spoke to a New Zealander, and a young couple of England. That's all. At Dali there were some Europeans in the Breakfast room.

It was commented to us that Yunnan is not getting many tourists apart from the Chinese themselves. Seems a pity, the scenery is superb, and the clothing, etc. so colourful. The old sections of the cities are wonderful to walk in and dine in. Must admit as we were only two, we could get our guides to take us to some really genuine local restaurants and we feel as though we have been on a 'gourmet' tour. We hardly had any dish twice. The vegetables, just everything was delicious.

Once we reached Shangrila, we felt the impact of the height, but took it easy and never had to resort to oxygen.

If there is anything else you would like to know, don't hesitate to ask. Never once were we left in limbo. The guides were always there to meet us at the airports, and were always on time collecting us.     

Thank you so much.

Maggie Grey

Comment from Michael Manuel

23 Day Russia Waterways and China Silk Road Tour, August 2012

Just to say that I had a wonderful China (Yangtze) and Russia Waterways tour.  Monica Chow was excellent in China and David Hui in Russia -  catering to our every need and making sure we did not wander or get lost.  Both are great assets to ADT. 

The English speaking local Tour Guides in China were also excellent, in particular are Ms Jasmine, Lucy and Katherine. They knew their stuff and we learned a lot on the history and items of local interest and shopping.  The food and entertainment were excellent (Beijing duck and Kung Fu to name a few).  As mentioned below to Monica, I bought 4 silk comforters in Beijing.  My family is very happy with them. 

I will definitely go on another ADT Tour and will contact you.  I do think that your tour is well planned and executed and is good value for money. I now have friends also interested in your tours.

All the Best to you, Allan Huang and ADT. 

Many thanks for your assistance to me.

Hi Allan, Thank you for taking us to China on your 13 day China Ethnic Adventure Tour. On the day of arrival at Shangrila, Jeffrey Zhou called us through our guide and welcomed us to China. That was really nice. The tour went very smoothly, even though there were two rescheduled flights. All the guides and drivers were very professional and helpful. Jeffrey even arranged for a half-day tour for us in Shanghai as our flight arrived earlier than scheduled. Super efficient Lina looked after us very well there. Even had dinner at Quandjude for Peking Duck!

So, thanks again for a wonderful trip. Will be recommending my friends for your tours.

Subject: 15 Day China Tour

We arrived home on 6th Oct 09 from a very exciting trip to China. six of us went and had absolute ball. The food was far too generous, hotels were way better than we expected and guides were excellent. We were blown away by what we saw and how many places we visited each day. Your tour company sure caters for everything, we did not need to buy anything but souvenirs. Would travel with your company again, it was so cheap for all the things that were included.

23 November 2009

Dear Allan,

I apologise to be so late with my 'Thankyou note'. Let me say at the very beginning that both Australian - Slovenian Community Group tours of China were a great success. Your service from our initial contact to the very end was excellent and most professional. Despite the fact that the program on both tours was the same, there was a noted difference in the execution of the program on the ground in China. This was due to change of the local service provider and the Tour escorts. Hotels 4* plus were excellent, the Food was good and plentiful, top service in every respect. Both local Tour Escorts, Richard on the first tour in May and Jeffrey on second tour in October were most helpful and obliging, their command of English language was very good and their sense of humour contributed to the pleasant atmosphere throughout the tour. The local guides were extremely obliging and courteous. All members of the group felt comfortable and safe. I would have no hesitation recommending your company and naturally you personally to any prospective tour organiser.

Dear Allan,

Here we are, back home safe and sound. Our visit to China was a great success, credit to your excellent arrangements and your follow up during our touring around China. Also our huge thanks to Richard our escort throughout our trip. Everyone in the group was happy and satisfied.

As I have already indicated that a repeat of last tour to China may be possible. The positive reports from the last group may result in a second tour, sometime in October. Could you please let me know what departure and return dates would be available in October with Air China (Departure after the 3rd and return before 25th of October).

Please confirm costing for the same program as the last tour for 30 people and over.

We want to thank you for being so helpful and taking the trouble out of all the arrangements. The boat trip down the Yangtze was so good and the ship was excellent.

We have just returned from our tour of China travelling with Tony and Bev Connor's group. We would like to tell you how much we enjoyed the tour and thank you for your organisation. We loved the whole trip China was amazing. Everything went well. Our tour guides looked after us well and some were exceptionally good. I would like to particularly mention Ellen in Guilin, Nancy in Dali, Jessie in Lijiang, David in Chongqin and Danny in Shanghai. They were the best. Our Driver from Lijiang to Dali and Shangrila and back to Lijiang was the best driver we have ever had, so careful, courteous and obliging. I think his name was Mr. He. Thank you once again for a wonderful trip which we have many great memories of.

China Wonder Tour, 21 March 2008

Details: many many compliments to all at A.D.T.

I have travelled quite a bit and I was absolutely satisfied with the Service! Very helpful before the trip on the phone,and Wendy and Alan tried to get the very best deal for me. The Guides in China were unbelievable! They looked after us every step of the way and knew when to give us space. The customs help was unexpected and when I told my family back home they couldn'nt believe it. It made the stressful custom saga an absolute breeze. Obviously I am booking with them again, this time to go to Turkey!

Thank you everyone from a single traveller.

Comment from Georgina and Phil May

Dear Wendy,

We had a wonderful holiday in China. Everything was very well organised and the whole tour went smoothly. Our guide, Stephanie was a very pleasant lady, helpful and informative and in fact most of the local guides did a great job. It was a fantastic experience to see all the sights that we had heard about and to climb the Great Wall. Shanghai was a very exciting city and very clean as were all the cities. Hangzhou was very beautiful around the lake with the lovely gardens. Our Yangtze River cruise was so relaxing and the scenery stunning. To visit the Three Gorges dam sight was amazing. Another highlight was to visit the Hutong area, ride in the rickshaw and have a wonderful lunch with a local family. It would have been very unfortunate to have missed this experience. All the hotels were excellent and the food was very good. We enjoyed the variety of dishes. The Tang Dynasty show and dinner was a most enjoyable night, we had great seats. The acrobatics show was also excellent. We had a wonderful experience and thank you for the quality of the tour.

Kind Regards,

Comment from Ms Dinh Ngo

China Comprehensive Tour, December 2006

Hi Wendy,

I really enjoyed my trip. I was really glad I got the guide to pick me up in Beijing because when I went the new hotel in Beijing (which I found out through you email) they didn't have a booking for me at all and he was able to sort it out for me. Also I wish we had seen more of Shanghai, as the only thing we saw on the itinerary was The Bund, but I understand this was because of the late flight from Guilin. I think if they can get an earlier flight for future tourists it would be much better. Other than that it was a very well run tour and the guides were very knowledgable so I was very impressed and really enjoyed myself in China. I have recommended your tour to other people and am considering other trips hence that's the why the request for the new brochure. ...

Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time my father and I had on our trip to China, just got back on Sunday. Everything was great. All the guides spoke good English, the hotels were First Class and the restaurants were very good and varied. Loved the shows. Having 14 on the tour was an ideal number.

Bonny our guide in Beijing was great and I would like you to tell her boss what a good job she did. I have recommend your agency to my friends and some of them want to go on the trip. Thanks again for all your help and I my be going to China again in the future.

China Wonder Tour, October 2006

Hi Allan, Just a short note to say that my husband and I and the rest of the family enjoyed our recent Wonder Tour to China. The accomodation was very comfortable and the food was good. Thanks for everything and you never know we may book again in the not too distant future. My brother Mark, his wife Ratana and Ray and myself are pretty keen on doing the Silk Road next. You can keep us in mind. I would not do the same cities again mainly because it would not hold the same enchantment as when I first visited the Forbidden City, Great Wall, Temple of Heaven and the Warriors on this tour. It would not be the same seeing it a second time if you know what I mean. I was in awe with the history of the country and am very proud of my heritage!

Take care,

Maria Cheung

Re: China Silk Road Train Tour departing on 06/09/06

Have just completed your Silk Road Train tour and had a wonderful experience.

One comment though, is 3 meals a day of Chinese food was too much for Westerners. If a simple breakfast of bread, fruit, yoghurt etc. had been provided each day, we all would have appreciated that much better than a 12 course Chinese meal! We actually cancelled 2 of our meals and did something different.

But it was a wonderfully-led and guided tour and everyone enjoyed it immensely!

We had a very good time. We learnt much about China. Your guides were excellent and they were always there to collect us at the airports and show us around the cities. The accommodation was excellent and we enjoyed the wide ranges of food.

In particular I also want to say that the Yangtze Cruise was one of the most interesting things I have done in my life.

Re: Silk Road Explorer Tour departing May 2006

Nihao Allan,

Thank you and your company for giving me the opportunity to experience the Silk Road Explorer Tour. My partner and I have previously visited China, three times including Shanghai and Beijing. So we found Urumqi and Kashgar very interesting and much better than we expected. Some general comments: 1.All hotels were of a good standard and satisfactory. 2.All meals were good. 3.All guides were excellent. 4.Tours were good. Due to rain on one day, as an alternative, we visited the Urumqi Museum, which was excellent and has a good modern display of items relevant to the Silk Road. 5.Thank you for your assistance with the lost Air China ticket (Shanghai´┐ŻSydney). Eventually we received the new ticket in Shanghai. Once again thank you for your services.

Yours faithfully

... After returning home from 15-Day Best of China Tour, only one sentence can deeply express my grateful feelings -- "Thank you Asia Discovery Tours!" Without your thoughtful arrangement, we wouldn't have such a magnificent experience in China. People we met, places we went and the unique natural scenery we saw are all still in our memories. Everything was well organised, everything was well unforgetable. We are looking forward to the next trip again with you, and we will definately recommend all our friends to share the experiences as we had before...

Good morning ladies.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all of the stsff at Asia Discovery Tours for arranging my recent holiday in China.  I returned to Sydney on the 5th of June and have been meaning to get in touch with you.  The tour was just fantastic, I thorougly enjoyed every moment of my time away.  The hotels were excellent and the food was first class.  We had a tour guide Cindy for the first 3 days we had away and we then joined the main tour group where our tour guide was Iris.  Both these ladies were extremely good.  Iris worked so hard and made this tour something everyone will remember for a long time to come.  She is a first class guide and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who asked.  Again thank you for a great holiday.  I would recommend your company to anyone who asks.

Thanking you

Thanks for a great trip and looking forward to travelling again with you.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our many thanks for a wonderful tour of China. Every day was well planned and the organization was excellent. We would be very grateful if you could pass on a very special thank you to Jeffery who travelled with us on our two internal flights. Also to his local guides who were knowledgeable, helpful and keen in answering many questions about ancient history and modern times.

Yours sincerely,
Jose and Magda Slavec

12 Day China Insight Tour from 12 May to 22 May 09

Dear Allan,

Here we are, back home safe and sound. Our visit to China was a great success, credit to your excellent arrangements and your follow up during our touring around China. Also our huge thanks to Richard our escort throughout our trip. Everyone in the group was happy and satisfied.

As I have already indicated that a repeat of last tour to China may be possible. The positive reports from the last group may result in a second tour, sometime in October. Could you please let me know what departure and return dates would be available in October with Air China (Departure after the 3rd and return before 25th of October).

Please confirm costing for the same program as the last tour for 30 people and over.

Kind regards,

Stan Prosenak

34 day China Tour from 16th April 09We have just returned from our tour of China travelling with Tony and Bev Connor's group. We would like to tell you how much we enjoyed the tour and thank you for your organisation. We loved the whole trip China was amazing. Everything went well. Our tour guides looked after us well and some were exceptionally good. I would like to particularly mention Ellen in Guilin, Nancy in Dali, Jessie in Lijiang, David in Chongqin and Danny in Shanghai. They were the best. Our Driver from Lijiang to Dali and Shangrila and back to Lijiang was the best driver we have ever had, so careful, courteous and obliging. I think his name was Mr. He. Thank you once again for a wonderful trip which we have many great memories of.

34 Day China tour (16 April - 19 May 2009)

Dear Allan,

We are home safe and sound from our China Tour. Thank You!! It was all arranged very well and every one had a great time. We want to thank you for being so helpful and taking the trouble out of all the arrangements. The boat trip down the Yangtze was so good and the ship was excellent. All our guides were good and most helpful. It was really good to have the larger bus. All the hotels were up to the standard...........

Many Thanks

Tony and Bev Connor and Group

We were a small group who had lots of fun times and laughs. I have made some more friends.

Thank you

I would like to get in contact with one of your tour guides we had in Beijing. His name was BAT, either an email address or post address would be fine.

We look forward to hearing from you

The tour was well organised, the food superb and our tour guides made us feel welcome and provided us with such interesting history of your wonderful country. I would like to make a special mention of our national guide Walter, he made our tour so enjoyable, taking care of our welfare and nothing was too much trouble.

Many thanks,

China Wonder Tour 21 March 08

Details: many many compliments to all at A.D.T. I have travelled quite a bit and I was absolutely satisfied with the Service! Very helpful before the trip on the phone,and Wendy and Alan tried to get the very best deal for me. The Guides in China were unbelievable! They looked after us every step of the way and knew when to give us space. The customs help was unexpected and when I told my family back home they couldn'nt believe it. It made the stressful custom saga an absolute breeze. Obviously I am booking with them again, this time to go to Turkey!Thank you everyone from a single traveller.

Dear Wendy,

We had a wonderful holiday in China. Everything was very well organised and
the whole tour went smoothly. Our guide, Stephanie was a very pleasant lady,
helpful and informative and in fact most of the local guides did a great job.
It was a fantastic experience to see all the sights that we had heard about
and to climb the Great Wall. Shanghai was a very exciting city and very
clean as were all the cities. Hangzhou was very beautiful around the lake
with the lovely gardens. Our Yangtze River cruise was so relaxing and the
scenery stunning. To visit the Three Gorges dam sight was amazing.
Another highlight was to visit the Hutong area, ride in the rickshaw and have
a wonderful lunch with a local family. It would have been very unfortunate
to have missed this experience.

All the hotels were excellent and the food was very good. We enjoyed the
variety of dishes. The Tang Dynasty show and dinner was a most enjoyable
night, we had great seats. The acrobatics show was also excellent.

We had a wonderful experience and thank you for the quality of the
tour.

Kind Regards,

Georgina and Phil May

Re: China Comprehensive Tour departing in December 2006

Hi Wendy,

I really enjoyed my trip. I was really glad I got the guide to pick me up in Beijing because when I went the new hotel in Beijing (which I found out through you email) they didn't have a booking for me at all and he was able to sort it out for me.

Also I wish we had seen more of Shanghai, as the only thing we saw on the itinerary was The Bund, but I understand this was because of the late flight from Guilin. I think if they can get an earlier flight for future tourists it would be much better.

Other than that it was a very well run tour and the guides were very knowledgable so I was very impressed and really enjoyed myself in China.

I have recommended your tour to other people and am considering other trips hence that's the why the request for the new brochure. ...

Re: China Wonder Tour departing in October 2006

Dear Allan,

Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time my father and I had on our trip to China, just got back on Sunday. Everything was great. All the guides spoke good English, the hotels were First Class and the restaurants were very good and varied. Loved the shows. Having 14 on the tour was an ideal number.

Bonny our guide in Beijing was great and I would like you to tell her boss what a good job she did. I have recommend your agency to my friends and some of them want to go on the trip. Thanks again for all your help and I my be going to China again in the future.

Kind regards

Natalie

Re: China Wonder Tour departing October 2006Hi Allan,

Just a short note to say that my husband and I and the rest of the family enjoyed our recent Wonder Tour to China.

The accomodation was very comfortable and the food was good. Thanks for everything and you never know we may book again in the not too distant future. My brother Mark, his wife Ratana and Ray and myself are pretty keen on doing the Silk Road next. You can keep us in mind.

I would not do the same cities again mainly because it would not hold the same enchantment as when I first visited the Forbidden City, Great Wall, Temple of Heaven and the Warriors on this tour. It would not be the same seeing it a second time if you know what I mean. I was in awe with the history of the country and am very proud of my heritage!

Take care,

Maria Cheung

Re: Silk Road Explorer Tour departing May 2006

Nihao Allan,

Thank you and your company for giving me the opportunity to experience the Silk Road Explorer Tour.

My partner and I have previously visited China, three times including Shanghai and Beijing. So we found Urumqi and Kashgar very interesting and much better than we expected. Some general comments:

All hotels were of a good standard and satisfactory.All meals were good.All guides were excellent.Tours were good. Due to rain on one day, as an alternative, we visited the Urumqi Museum, which was excellent and has a good modern display of items relevant to the Silk Road.Thank you for your assistance with the lost Air China ticket (Shanghai´┐ŻSydney). Eventually we received the new ticket in Shanghai.

Once again thank you for your services.

Yours faithfully

Robert R. Woods

Re: China Silk Road Train Tour departing on 06/09/06Have just completed your Silk Road Train tour and had a wonderful experience.

One comment though, is 3 meals a day of Chinese food was too much for Westerners. If a simple breakfast of bread, fruit, yoghurt etc. had been provided each day, we all would have appreciated that much better than a 12 course Chinese meal! We actually cancelled 2 of our meals and did something different.

But it was a wonderfully-led and guided tour and everyone enjoyed it immensely!

Re: China Yangtze Deluxe Tour Departing on 17/09/06

Dear Allan,

Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for arranging the China tour which Barbara and myself have just returned, and to add, apart from some minor variances, was simply excellent and one of the best tours we have been on.

Thank you again and remember to send me details of any Canadian and east coast USA tours you have, around this time of the year, in 2007.

Ciao

Re: 15-Day China Special with Majestic Yangtze - May 2006 to June 2006

Dear Allan,

You may recall I travelled on this trip with Fran Herd.

We want to say thank you very much for everything you did for us with this tour.

We had a very good time. We learnt much about China. Your guides were excellent and they were always there to collect us at the airports and show us around the cities. The accommodation was excellent and we enjoyed the wide ranges of food.

In particular I also want to say that the Yangtze Cruise was one of the most interesting things I have done in my life.

We appreciate all the work you did - and we thank Asia Discovery Tours for a great job.

Yours sincerely,

Peter EJ Murray

... After returning home from 15-Day Best of China Tour, only one sentence can deeply express my grateful feelings -- "Thank you Asia Discovery Tours!" Without your thoughtful arrangement, we wouldn't have such a magnificent experience in China.

People we met, places we went and the unique natural scenery we saw are all still in our memories. Everything was well organised, everything was well unforgetable. We are looking forward to the next trip again with you, and we will definately recommend all our friends to share the experiences as we had before...
