    The trip was amazing and we had a great tour guide Wei Ying, who was so knowledgeable and we loved her. She was very friendly and planned a ton of stuff for us. I highly recommend her for any trip.

    I enjoyed the trip a great deal, good group. Mostly visited city\'s, would had prefered more rural / local trips, maybe walking through bamboo forests or waling in the Wudan Mountains. or visited some local crafting.
