Now that the jet lag has dissipated, we want to thank you again for the wonderful tour you organized for us during our recent visit to China. I must say that when planning this tour with me, you showed the utmost in patience with my many questions, suggestions, and changes. You responded to all questions and requests in a timely manner. Using your first hand knowledge of the many available sites, you helped us to utilize the time we had wisely. I also appreciated the clear breakdown of the costs involved in the tour.
We very much enjoyed the many places we visited, and were impressed by your knowledge and the stories you shared. All of the hotels you chose were terrific, but we will always remember the stay at the Pingyao Yide Hotel. I was amazed that a traditional brick and stone bed could be so comfortable. Also, staying in an almost 300 year old banker’s home added much to our appreciation and enjoyment of the history of Pingyao. Our tour of Pingyao covered many amazing buildings and museums, and with your experience, the history came alive. We also very much enjoyed our visits to the Jinci Temple, the Wang Family Compound, and the Zhangbi Fortress, and have recommended visits to these sites to our Chinese friends.
The time spent driving and riding the train in Shanxi showed us how beautiful the province is, and how rich the area is in coal resources. I doubt I have ever seen such a high concentration of coal trucks, coal piles, and coal-fueled power plants. Fortunately, we had blue-sky days during our trip and we got to see Shanxi at its best.
The Shanxi Museum in Taiyuan was excellent. Our experience with the various provincial museums we have seen has always been very good, and I highly recommend them during China visits.
Finally, thank you for encouraging me to include Datong in our itinerary. The Datong Garden Hotel is an excellent international hotel with 5-star service. The Hanging Monastery was an experience that we will never forget. These old buildings, hanging off the face of an almost vertical side of a mountain, are a true tribute to the engineering skills and the perseverance of construction personnel of that era. Equally memorable was our visit to the Yungang Grotto site to visit some of the 51,000 stone carvings. The carvings we saw were amazing, and even more so when you consider their age. Fortunately the construction did not complicate our visit, but it made us anxious to return in the future to see the new museum.
Many of our Chinese friends were astounded that we visited Shanxi, but with your guidance, we had no problems getting around. We have shared your contact information with them, in case they, or other visitors, wish to find a tour guide. Your English skills allowed us to learn much more about the sites than if we had attempted to tour on our own. You were highly professional in every interaction. Thank you for suggesting picture locations and taking pictures of us, as we now have many good pictures with both of us in them. Thank you for choosing professional and friendly drivers, with whom we felt comfortable. Most of all, thank you for the many memories we will carry for the rest of our lives.
I am attaching one of the pictures that we took at the end of the tour. It's not perfect, but the best I have of the three of us. Enjoy!
We hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in future visits.
