Anne is very professional and very well organized and made sure everyone understood and had what they needed on this trip. I would recommend Anne to anyone travelling in China.

Dear Deng Lan & Gin,

I just want to thank you both for your recommendations & tour arrangement. Both Kirk & I enjoyed ourselves tremendously today. The tea plantation was a great experience. What made it more special was that the owner of the tea plantation actually lived in a Tulou. So it was nice to see the 3 generations living together, and having a real life experience of people living in it & able to see their neighbors doing just ordinary things like cooking, cleaning, etc. The teas were good & the walk in the plantation was excellent. Beautiful views of the countryside & plantation. Was fun too, to be able to interact with the owner & family while having tea. Please thank them for their hospitality for us. When we drink their tea in Seattle, we will definitely remember our time with them fondly. :-)

 

Lunch place was good. Thank you Gin & the driver for taking hygiene into consideration. :-)

 

The Chuxi Tulou visit was awesome too, learnt a bit of history & even saw & took a picture of my surname, Gao, 高, on the 2nd level of the tulou where they displayed the origin of surnames. So that made my trip here to find out about my heritage more worthwhile. :-)

 

So all in all, it was a fantastic trip. Thank you so much again. We will definitely share this experience with our family & friends.

 

Lastly Gin, hope you will feel better soon. Take care.

Cheers,
