    Hotel was decent and comfortable, but location wise is very far from city. We are fortunate to have a tour guide (Jason Xie) who is consistently bilingual in sharing cities fact, but he is not too clear when pointing out directions to go some places, resulted us in losing time and getting lost. Overall tour experience was good but the tour more suitable for mandarin speaking tourist.

    Tour schedule is good. Cover all important attraction. Hotels are great and comfort, even though a little far from city. Fortunately the our tour guide is Jason. He is very well take care of all people in his group even tough we are only 2 people who do not understand mandarin. By the way, 2 other girl guides which I met on the date of arrival and on last date of departure are very bad tour guide. They always care only people who speak mandarin. Totally don't care people who speak english. Many times they speak something important only in Mandarin and not translate to English. Be careful if you want to join this tour and you can not listening Mandarin.
