We are really glad to hear you're fine, I hope all of your guides and your fellows are safe and healty too.
We are very concerned with this pandemia, in the north of our country the situation is really critic, in our places we are quite safe, everybody, but we take everything very seriously, we don't exit home but to collect food and what we need, a few people is allowed to work....everything is in lockdown.
Let's hope this will go better soon!
We would thank you so much for your kind thought, and for these useful informations you've sent us, we appreciate so much and we will tell friends and family.
Thank you again, we will come back to China as soon as possible, your Country is great!
Stay safe, you too

I am having trouble with my internet provider. Last week I wrote a fantastic review of you and your guides. It took me an hour.
I sent it off but the whole email just disappeared.
I will write as soon as I change my provider next week.
All the best,

Dear Wendy Dan,
Your Arrangement was perfect. Thank you again. I will give my opinion to Trip Advisor.
Soon there will be Chinese New Year. I wish you a prosperous New Year with good success for you. Best regards, U.B. Haberthuer.

I have submitted a review to Trip Advisor via our Australian site.
"Wendy Dan organised our Yangtze river Cruise for our group of 6 Australians. From our initial contact all emails were promptly answered in a timely and professional manner. Wendy also organised transfers, tickets to the amazing Han Show and train tickets from Yichang to Wuhan. The ladies that carried out the transfers were excellent and accommodated our needs. Our cruise ship, the Century Sky was very good - reasonably priced alcohol (for a cruise boat) and very good variety of food. The ship crew were very helpful and really looked after us. There were only about 130 people on board including 20 westerners. I would not hesitate to recommend Wendy and the Yangtze River Cruise agency to travellers.”

Thank you for the mail received, I’ve meant to reply some time ago already, but unfortunately the days since our return from China has just been flying by.
Our trip was truly an unforgettable and amazing experience.
Needless to say, to anyone living in China, that we have chosen one of the worst weeks in October to travel as it was rainy, cloudy, cold and just plain miserable but, this said, we still had an amazing time onboard the President No 8. We were fortunate to be upgraded to two suites and this just made everything perfect... The suites are amazing, we even had a sky light, right over the most comfortable king size bed. This really did not make getting out of bed in the mornings an easy task.
We have decided to take the exclusive dining package as this allows a little more privacy. We could indulge in the most fabulous meals and allow meaningful and lengthy discussions with the best Changyu champagne till late in the evenings. Something we don’t always get to do due to our busy schedules back home.
We have managed to go on all the excursions on offer, an excellent decision as the guides were all equally friendly and knowledgeable and the tours truly very memorable. I can really not single out a single individual.
I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Kind regards and greetings from a warm and sunny South Africa.

Hi Ms. Dan,
Please find the copies of my review.
Thank you very much for your help to assist us to have a great China experience.
Hope you will have more success in your professional future.

Dear Mrs Wendy,
I would be delighted to write a review about our stay on Glory Century but unfortunately 'Tripadvisor' will not let me.
Thank you very much for your efficiency and your kindness in helping us to prepare this cruise which was a very nice and too short experience.
SpainOct 29, 2019
Thanks. We all got back home safely in one whole piece!.
We are happy with the services provided. You are a response person. You communicated with us frequently and made sure our requirements are met. The quotations provided are clear & reasonable, the payment instructions are clear.
Overall, we are happy with the services arranged. Because it was a lot easier to get to the faraway places with the organised driver and guide, rather than we have to organise it ourselves at the risk of being ripped off, or given a bum steer.
We are happy to provide you our group photo so that you can publish it into your website.
On behalf of our group, I thank you once again for your dedicated effort so that we have a great holiday in China.

I posted a review of our time in China on tripadvisor.com. It’s titled “Zhangjiajie—Better than Avatar” if you want to read it.
Thank you for all you did to make our time in China so wonderful. Everything was so perfectly organized, we were free to just enjoy ourselves. We met interesting people, made some new friends, and ate some interesting food. Eating salamander dumplings was a new experience for us, and so was jellyfish. These were unforgettable experiences for us. If we know people who want to travel to China, we will surely send them to you.
Aug 04, 2019
You were super helpful. You were enthusiastic helping to arrange all little details I requested and got everything all organized. The tour was very good. All the guides were waiting for us at the transfer points. They were knowledgeable and helpful.
Jun 11, 2019
You were very prompt in replying to our questions, even while in China through WeChat.
The tour was excellent. All of our guides made the visits to each location enjoyable and memorable.
We absolutely loved our tour and all our guides. Wendy, you organised a great tour and we would definitely recommend you and your services to our friends and family.
The Great Wall was definitely our highlight, especially as it has been a childhood dream. So happy we went to Jinshanling section. Absolutely glorious day!!!
Thank you so much for organising this fantastic holiday. We look forward to coming back someday.
May 31, 2019
You tried her best to answer my questions as quickly as possible. It’s sometimes hard because of the time difference in the 2 countries. I was impressed with your English knowledge.
The tour was ok. We upgraded and was happy we did; as the room was much bigger and the food better. The cruise shop staff are very polite and tried their best.
Overall I was happy with your service, thank you!
May 18, 2019
Thank you yes, we arrived home safely. Both Jacqui and I returned to work the following Monday so life has been very busy in the two weeks since our return. You are welcome to use my feedback on your website.
We were more than happy with our Yangtze cruise and enjoyed every minute on the "Victoria Anna". The ship was only at half capacity for passengers so we took the option and upgraded our cabin. The staff were always pleasant and helpful and the evening entertainments enabled them to display some of their other talents while we learned some of the local culture and history. The food was excellent and no request was too much trouble for the restaurant or bar staff.
The optional excursions were wonderful, especially the small boats in Shennv Stream. The highlight however was definitely the Ship Lift and the Three Gorges Dam. There were two American couples, who were also travelling independently, so we spent a great deal of time with them, both on and off the ship. By the end of the cruise we were firm friends. All in all a wonderful cruise.
Booking the cruise and train tickets to Suzhou with Wendy was trouble free and went off without a hitch. The email correspondence was always prompt and the arrangements perfect.
We had originally booked a tour with Sinorama who went into liquidation in October 2018 so we lost our money. We decided to travel independently so that we could have greater control over where we went and how long we spent in each place. Neither of us are shoppers and we like to get outside the cities and go on hikes. We did have private guides for some of our chosen activities but by the time we arrived in Chonqing we wanted to do something as part of a group - it was not important that they spoke English. We found a tour company two doors from our hotel and they booked us on a full day tour to Wulong Karst where we hiked as part of a large group - none of whom spoke English and the tour guide spoke only a little English. That is fine - we are after all in China - and we were hiking, we actually went on two hikes that day. The total cost of the day, including lunch, was 420rmb for both of us. This does not compare well with the quote of 5352rmb for the a private tour to Wulong Karst and Dazu the following day.
I would suggest that China Discovery offer group tours, as well as private tours, before the Yangtze cruises.
I will certainly recommend China Discovery and Wendy Dan to any friends who decide to travel independently in China.

We had a very lovely cruise, thank you. The food and service was excellent. Amanda has already dropped us at Yichang East station snd we are awaiting our train yo Zhangjiajie.
Again, thank you so much for your terrific support.
Nov 02, 2018
It was a relaxing and calm cruise ride on the Yangtze River. The service was good and the personnel working on the cruise was very attentive of its customers.
The food offered on the cruise was medium good and the rooms were spacey enough.
It was a bit unfortunate that there were so many add-ons like Wifi and the drinking plans forcing us to pay extra on a cruise ride which was already quite pricey itself.
In regards to photos, you have our approval to post photos taken by the cruise ship on your website.
Sep 27, 2018
Yes, safely back in Australia now. The cruise was very relaxing. It would have been nice to be able to get off the boat when you didn't want to participate in the optional excursions. I also think that the use of facilities, such as the pool, should be inclusive in the price. Staff and service were good. I have attached a few photos.

The trip was Ok, but very disappointed that wifi was impossible for the whole trip-- terrible for such an expensive trip.
Also, charging fees for the pool is unsatisfactory , as is no shade on the top deck ,especially at 30-38C temperatures
Porter charges 25rmb /bag to put on and take off were exorbitant.
Sorry , but CHINA is too expensive versus the rest of ASIA and most of the world, which is very hard to believe , as Chinese goods are inexpensive overseas.

We are back home after this great well-organized trip. We would like to thank you for your great work. All the arrangments you worked on coordinating were on time and in place. The guides were helpful and drivers brought us safely to our destination. I would like to thank you personally for the special effort you put into making right the glitch caused by the flight delay. I'm sorry it ruined your Sunday afternoon. Please let me know if there is an unsettled bill for the hotel in Kunming airport in case the airline didn't reimburse you for it (usually they do because it's their fault).
Again, thanks for your efforts who made this trip to China such a great one.

Know we are back to France for a few weeks.
Our trip was so nice, but, as you will easily understand, a little bit tiring ... since after China we added a two weeks trip to Burma ...
I had time to update our personal internet site, and I give you the internet address of it.
Please select the China chapter ...
You will find inside all our pictures (about 3000) and video clips, which you can easily download..
But I also added a chapter named "itinéraires" including
- the map of the trip
- the description of it, day by day
- our advice on each visit (quoted from 0 to ***)
You'll understand we are very glad with this journey, and with your company's help !
Know, if you wish any other detail, I shall try to help you.
In addition, I am going to complete our opinion on Trip Advisor
Have a happy Christmas,

My wife and I arrived back in the UK today following our holiday in China.
I just thought I would send you an email thanking you for the arrangements you made on our behalf.
All the arrangements worked out extremely well particularly the transfer arrangements in Yichang. Fay actually met us on the boat and escorted us to the waiting car. She also arranged a very nice restaurant for us to have some lunch and took us to the local museum. Fay was really pleasant and helpful and being met at the boat was in valuable given the lack of taxis and local transport.
The arrangement got our holiday of to an excellent start.
Many thanks once again.

indeed, we did arrive well back home. Our holidays have been just great! Thanks to your support.
Your travel consultant (the guide in Zhangjiajie) has been so nice, kind, funny, talkative, flexible and supportive. We were really happy having him. The program has been just awesome!
The cruise was very nice and the daily tours very nice as well. We enjoyed it a lot. The help to get the luggage on/off board might have been better as I had to carry the luggage myself.
The service and especially your support and flexibility was just perfect! I also placed the comment on TripAdvisor.
Have a great time,
Oct 17, 2017
You have already done the Chongqing tour we arranged and the Yangtze cruise , so how was this trip overall ? Excellent but it would be good to alert all clients ahead of time regarding the various upgrades and additional tours. Pushing for it at the registration can be quite hassling and uncomfortable.
Here below are the questions for you:
1. Was your travel consultant of our company polite and patient to answer your questions? Yes, they are polite and professional
2. How was your tour? The tour was well organised and the schedule was excellent in terms of timing and breaks in between items.
4. Do you have any suggestions on improving our service? Do try to improve your selection of wines.
The Program Director, Dick and River Guide Steven were great.
With best wishes...

I am writing to let yo know that both my husband and I enjoyed our trip to Zhangjiajie. We realized without the Zhangjiajie guide Linda who helped us to navigate the city of Zhangjiajie and has years of experience and expertise not only knowing the parks well, but the taste of the foreign visitors, it would be impossible for us to figure everything out on our own. She made our trip wonderful in a limited days that we had. Pullman Hotel was a great accommodation for us and we did not expect that we could have a such up scale hotel in Zhanjiajie.

my apologies for not doing this sooner but I have been really sick & basically stuck in bed...
but I have actually got up & written my review in TripAdvisor this morning... I wanted to send you a link after submitting my review but TripAdvisor is not letting me do so at this moment. I guess it is going through the process of submitting written text first & then will be uploaded.
Wendy, you were such a great help & fantastic to deal with... and you are such a lovely intelligent person - it was an absolute pleasure to work with you on my trip to the Yangtse and that's why I wanted to come & speak with you personally about further travel arrangements.
I hope you don't mind but I put your photo on my facebook page - hope that is OK.. please let me know if it is not OK... if you can, check it out at facebook******
Ok once again thankyou for your excellent assistance - you are great :-)

I am writing to say thank you for such a wonderful tour. We had a great time and your organization and your suggestions were perfect.
I am sorry we didn’t meet. Your guides were all excellent, Andie and Zack, in particular.
We particularly loved Chengdu and Shanghai though were exhausted by Shanghai, too many late nights and early mornings.
Thank you for adapting to our needs through the journey.
We are keen to go Guilin and Tibet at some stage perhaps later this year or next year so would be keen for you to arrange this when the time comes.
Again thank you.

We did find the bus to board to travel to the cruise.
Our room was very comfortable with lots of room.
The food at all meals was very good.
We got wifi which was nice and VIP service.
The shore excursions to the Three Gorges Dam, the ferry on the river and the walk to the red pagoda were all very good and interesting.
Overall, it was an excellent trip.

Back home we are enjoying long hours of Bernadette’s video and wondering at the thousands of photo’s shot during our wonderful tour.
It was indeed a wonderful tour. Wendy and her senior management are to be congratulated.
The development stage was perfect and during the tour Wendy duly followed us up. When a flight was cancelled you rebooked the hotel and guide.
All the guides were far above standard.
• We like to mention that Jason not only brought us to the Beijing station but arranged to come with us in the wagon, taking care of our luggage.
• When the available time to visit Dazu was reduced to one day only, Charlie helped us to enjoy the rock sculptures. At the end of that day be came with us on the cruise boat making sure that checking in was going smoothly.
• Ellen picked us up in Hangzhou and was there all the time to meet all our questions and needs. At the end Bernadette called her no longer Ellen but “Chi May” with her real and Chinese name!
All the planes and trains were booked, not a single problem when boarding. Just showing our passport … and please proceed, hurry up!
We stayed in two very special hotels. The Imperial Palace in Chengde is a jewel with rosewood furniture. An exceptional design. The JR suite in Pingyao was like living in heaven on earth.
It was good that we booked the Shangri La’s and Hyatt’s ourselves. You understood. We were indeed most of the time upgraded and enjoyed an “imperial service” in the Shangri La, well in Shangri La! That was helpful when the flight was cancelled.
We are very sorry not being able to help you with Trip Advisor. We are in a circle of friends travelling a lot but none of us ever speaks to Trip Advisor. In Belgium it is imperative to keep private things indeed private. We are not to be found on Facebook either.
We remain however available to your senior management to clarify all questions they might want to formulate. Please pass them a copy of this e mail. They should know they are running a solid organisation yielding satisfied tourists.
It was sheer perfection!
Many lastings thanks from
Johan and Bernadette

you have been a pleasure to deal with. All your responses were accurate, informative and quick.
I will definitely recommend your services to my friends.
We enjoyed our Cruise thoroughly. We were upgraded to a suite, if you influenced this, thanks very much. The scenery was stunning, the accommodation excellent, the excursions well designed & delivered, and the service first class.
You have my permission to use my response.
May 25, 2016
You're too fast for me,
I wanted to write you a little word to thank you for your kind help, But you were first.
We DID have a very good time during this cruise, And your advises were helpful
For real, I read guides before our departure, and some talked about low level boats, And I was a little afraid about what we will find
I made white hairs for nothing:
Comfortable cabin, and even good fellows at our table (you choose them for us?)
I am not sure to do the same cruise again another year, but be quiet about me: if some of my friend ask me for a reliable person to organize a cruise, I will give him your name,
And if I can help you to become the boss of the Yang tse river Cruises, you can give my mail to your boss or ask him to write me to have confirmation (for free, no need to promise upgrading ha ha ha)
We don't have your WeChat id, but if you give it to me, I will send you a few photos of the cruise, for technical reasons, it is easier than by mail

My husband is planning to provide feedback soon but he has been very busy with his job after returning to Canada.
We had a wonderful trip in China for Beijing, Xian & Yangtze River cruise Tours and enjoy the culture very much. The guides and drivers were all very professional. You in particular were very responsive to changing needs, such as the inclusion of the two extra Chinese scholars who returned to Canada with us. Thanks again for everything.

Thank you for your work and I look forward to further contact.
