China Tour

Commeng from Helen

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

Kind regards

Helen Halling

20/05/13   19-Day A Real Taste of China and Japan Tour


Hi Allan


Four of us have recently returned (7/4/13) from the China and Japan tour. Just letting you know what a fantastic trip it was and I think it is fair to say that all (19) of us on the tour enjoyed it immensely. No major hiccups or criticisms.


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


Could you please confirm if you intend running the 25 day Turkey and Russian waterways cruise in 2015? There are at least 4 of us, already who would be definite starters if it runs.

Comment from Yen Lee

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.

18th May 2010 Deluxe China Tour With Majestic Yangtze River

Dear Allan,

My husband and I travelled on the Majestic Yangtze tour. We travelled together with our friends as a small group of 10 of us, visiting wonderful sights and exceeding all our expectations with the excellent hotels and lovely banquets. We had excellent national tour guides Eric and Frank and wonderful local guides especially Tom. Without a doubt this was one of the most enjoyable tours we've done. We are also highly impressed by the professionalism of your company we will certainly recommend your tour company to other friends.

Thank you for a fantastic tour.

Hi Wendy,

I recently had some clients, Mr and Mrs Cooper, on the 15 Day Yangtze River Cruise Deluxe Tour. They had a wonderful time and were wondering if there was any way of getting an email address for one of their guides Gabriel as they found him very helpful.

Thanks you.

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 ADT,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good morning Allan

I am just writing to you to thank you very much for a well planned and organised holiday we returned home yesterday and we all had a wonderful time. The service was very good and the hotels were excellent. We will keep in touch when we decide to travel to Asia again.

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

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

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!

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.

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...
