“We were on the Cruise to Panda tour in May. Just wanted to let you know we had a great time and the tour far exceeded our expectations. We were blown away by China and its people, didn’t realize it was such a clean and modern country now. Our tour guide Christina was wonderful and friendly and was definately organised even down to a birthday cake for Ray. She is also very knowledgeable. As were the local guides we had for various excursions. Once again thank you for your assistance.

“It was the trip of a lifetime for us, Everything was perfect, all 18 of us got on so well even though the age stretched from 25 to 83, Archie and I being the oldies, We all LOVED our guides, everyone of them treated us so kindly and they were so informed with their area. We were able to see sights we thought we would never see in our lifetime, what a joy, what a thrill, the photos are amazing, Thank you again, and lets have more of the world offered to us at the great prices your able to offer,and the care given.

I just wanted to say that I had a fantastic time on the 10 day trip to Tibet. What a beautiful place and I found the whole trip very enlightening.

Thank you so much for offering such a great experience. I thought the trip was great value,well planned, and adapted slightly along the way to make everything work in so well for our group of 13.

I felt it was really beneficial to have a local Tibetan guide and Pamir was brilliant with our group. He really knew his stuff and had a great way with everyone of all ages. I learnt a lot about this lovely place, it’s history and culture from him. I would love to return one day to see other areas of Tibet. Maybe a kora around Mt Kailash to help wash my sins away!(Might need to go around a few times!).

Thank you again and keep me in mind for future trips that come up!

“Last Friday evening (27th) we returned from the most wonderful tour of Vietnam. We enjoyed everything about the trip and feel this has been the best value for money holiday we have been on. The tour, food, accommodation and flights were excellent.

The people in our tour group added to the experience and were a wonderful mix of personalities. Everyone got on very well and I am sure some life time friendships have been made.

Kevin, in particular was absolutely fantastic. He took care of everything for us and without him I am sure the trip would not have been as successful. He answered many questions for us and was always there to help with luggage, airports, photos, and anything else we needed. I would not hesitate to travel with Kevin in the future.

Once again thank you for your help and giving us this wonderful opportunity to tour Vietnam through your company and look forward to travel again with you sometime in the future.

Kind Regards

“Hi Kevin, I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed the 18-28 October China Delights tour – as did the whole tour group- we are keen to meet for a trip reunion!

The flights on China Southern airlines were comfortable and well serviced as were the hotels and coaches in China.  It was great having our own driver for several days at a time. They were very professional and friendly as were the CTS tour guides, Wyman and Cindy. The CTS guides, like the local guides were also very knowledgeable and supportive and really made us feel at home in China.  The other people we met in China were almost without exception courteous,  friendly and helpful too. Overall, a great experience and above and beyond my expectations.

Thankyou for being easy to keep in touch with for the booking process, and for keeping me informed in a timely way.
