Heaven on the way to Paradise
What an amazing private tour. From the first moment our guide Berlin greeted us at the hotel to the last minute that she made sure we arrived back safely, everything about this experience was top notch. The communication beforehand. The sights we saw. The food / restaurant that was picked for lunch (seriously. the best meal we had!). The seemless operation of travel logistics. Simply cannot beat this level of service. Worth every penny. Well, every Yuan. HIGHLY recommend!
