An incredible time……

WOW!!!…..

Just had Evelyn on the phone for over an hour and they had an incredible time……

“Very impressed with China and learned a lot! We loved our experience in Tibet. The people are lovely and scenery magnificent. We had very accommodating and thoughtful guides. Very helpful.”

Flights in China were great and no delays, hotels were awesome, guides were wonderful, tours were perfect and even the train worked out. The 8th person on the train was a young Tibetan woman and they felt safe with her in the compartment.

Once again, a total success and very happy clients….
