Your company is very professional as are your tour guides and drivers in China. We had a fabulous trip. Lilly the tour guide in Beijing looked after us exceptionally. We would thoroughly recommend your CBT to all who made our trip so memorable.

Hi Eric

Just to let you know we have returned from our trip to China. It was a very enjoyable trip with lots to see and experience. The trip went well, the guides were courteous, knowledgeable, experienced and very helpful. Those who were exceptionally good were Rocky in Beijing, Stephen in Lijiang and Jack in Kunming.

Paul and Rosa, our fellow travellers for part of the trip were great company and we enjoyed our joint participation…..

Overall it was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed it very much. We would be happy to recommend it to others who may be interested in a similar trip to China.

Also thank you for all your assistance in organising the trip for us.

 

Kind Regards

Hi Carmen,

Yes, I'm back! It felt like the right amount of time to be away, on the final day I felt ready to be home. Had an amazing time overall. The group was one older couple and another couple in their 70's with their daughter and grandson. By the end of the tour we were like a little family, they all looked out for me but I had time to myself too which great…..Some other unexpected highlights were the dumpling banquet dinner in Xi'an with the cultural show, didn't know what to expect and I was blown away with quality food and an outstanding show of music and dance. Also the calligraphy class in the art museum was so informative and fun, we got to keep our rice paper and the teacher said my characters were the best of the group haha!

Thank you for organising the trip for me in a hurry, it was more than I could have every asked for. I've come back so inspired and much more informed about Chinese culture. Also empowered after travelling alone.

Thinking about what I will be booking next...

 

Kind regards,

Dear Jimmy and Staff at CBT,

This is just a short note to express our appreciation to you in regard to our recent trip to Siem Reap. Having had you (with the export guidance of our travel consultant Susan Wade, who always understands what we want) organize four customized tours in the past for us, two in China and two in Vietnam, we never doubted this would come together perfectly.

We realize it was short notice and our dates were fairly definite but nothing phased you and your staff. We were very impressed with our hotel and will return there again. we have already written a very favorable review on Trip Advisor for it and have recommended your company and the itinerary we had to quite a few friends…..

Thank you once again and we look forward to the next time we are able to use CBT.

 

Kindest regards

Dear Andrea

I would like to express my appreciation for your outstanding assistance and recommendations for the excellent China holiday we have just completed.

The trip was one of the best we have experienced in many years of travel to a wide range of destinations throughout the world.

All arrangements you made in conjunction with China Bestours were satisfactory and enjoyable. Our guides in each of the four cities in China we visited were professional and reliable, always on time and provided every assistance required in a very friendly manner. The Yangtze river cruise aboard Century Legend exceeded expectations and I would recommend this cruise to anyone. The ship is in as new condition (3 years old) and provided just about every comfort imaginable for this type of cruise……

Thank you again for your patience and wonderful assistance with all our travel arrangements related to this holiday. As usual we will recommend you and the services of BLT to all our friends.

I will send a few photos in a separate email.

 

Kind regards

Hi CBT

I am writing to say how much my friends and I enjoyed the recent tour of south west China. We found the guides and the drivers were excellent and extremely helpful….

The hotels were also very good and we enjoyed the mix of the traditional Chinese style hotel and the modern versions.

I understand the U3A group are about to start a tour of the major cities of China.  I hope all goes well and they enjoy China as much as we did.

Dear Jimmy,

Well, my dear friend, you have done it again! Our holidays into South Africa was a great success. Accommodation, transport and the guides were all excellent. The animals in the parks all performed for us including 23  lions in one group.

 

Thanks again, Julie and Barry.

I would just like to let you know how much we enjoyed our China Trip with your agency last week.

Everything was very well planned and we did not have to worry about anything which was such a relief when travelling. Oliver Lin our guide was particularly informative and everyone loved his company and his input.  He was also very patient and deserves no end of praise from his company. 

My husband, George, and myself enjoyed all of the trip (except for crossing the road which was chancy to say the least) so thanks again and we hope to travel with you again.

Hello CBT staff,

My wife and I have recently returned from our Luxury China 9 day tour. We would both like to thank you very much for organising a superb holiday. We had a wonderful time and our eyes have been truly opened to the magic of China.

The hotel accommodation ranged from very good to excellent, in particular the Crowne Plaza - Fudan in Shanghai. Well done on the hotel selection.

We were also very much impressed with China Eastern Airlines. The flight attendants were friendly and courteous and their level of service could not be faulted. 

My wife and I have already recommended this tour to family and friends. We are also looking at taking another holiday to China in the not-to-distant future.

 

Thank you

Hello there

My wife & I have recently returned from a month in Asia. The first couple of weeks were with CBT’s “China Wonder” tour. We’d like to congratulate you on the excellence of the tour itself and on the service CBT, thru’ the guides, provided us.

We’ve travelled quite a bit and this experience ranks right up there with the best.

 

Thanks

Accommodation was “A1” plus. Tour leader Grant Zhang was way and above his general duties his assistance during the whole tour was magnificent and his knowledge excellent.

I certainly had a great two weeks in China. My expectations before departing on the trip were certainly met and in fact surpassed once we arrived. The experience has certainly changed my perceptions and understanding of China and its people.

The role that Lewis and Michael played during the trip played a very strong part in this. Their knowledge, friendly manner and willingness to do whatever was needed to assist us was outstanding.  Their efficiency in dealing with the issue of the cancelled flight was outstanding. The same can also be said of the tour guides who joined us at each location. 

Thank you for putting together such a great itinerary that certainly provided an insight into the country as a whole rather than just a few large cities. The itinerary was busy but that was fine as it has allowed me to see parts of the country that I will probably not visit again. 

I hope to return to China in the future as there is obviously so much to see.

Thank you again for putting this trip together for us.

 

Regards

Hi Linh

What a fabulous holiday this has been, it's our last day today so that's a bit sad. Everyone has kept well, and has thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We have seen two amazing countries, with a history and culture which the local people are very proud of. The hotels have been first class and the food has been a true extravaganza with so many courses to get through, we'll all have to watch our weight when we get home.

The tour guides we have had have been excellent, both of them in Cambodia and here in Vietnam have been a wealth of knowledge and we found them extremely interesting. So we separate and go our different ways tomorrow, some are going home, others to Singapore and others including myself are off to Hong Kong. So we are looking forward to our next leg of our journey.

Take care and we'll catch up when we get back to Sydney.

Hi Sophie,

We're back from our holiday to Vietnam and just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time and the tour was a great success. Every aspect of it, the hotels, restaurants, transportation and in particular our guide Thanh Tran was exceptional and all contributed to the success of our tour. We are recommending it to our friends and would not hesitate to take any of your tours in the future.

Thanks for everything and regards.

Hello all,

On behalf of the four ladies, Lynette Laing, Dianne Quinn, Noelene Mildren, Roslyn Chirnside who have recently returned from this amazing trip, we just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the very different cultural experience of Vietnam.

The tour was everything we hoped for and more & will certainly recommend it to all our friends.  The attention to detail & the great service provided by the guides & drivers was amazing & the places of interest & their knowledge & excellent English. In particular the two ladies, Hung in Hanoi & Van in Hue who were just lovely…..

The very much enjoyed the local food & the five star hotels were excellent.  Well done, & hope to do another tour with CBT in the future.

I have passed these comments onto the local tour agent we used, Julie Gigliotti from Travel Managers, and I’m sure she will be directing potential travellers to your great tours.

 

Regards Lynn
