Dear Ryan,

My son Mike and i are now back from China for an excellent holiday of a life-time thanks to On the Go Tours - Mike enjoyed his 14th birthday bargaining for his presents in local shops in Shanghai! (Don't worry he will get his main present now he is back in Birmingham!).

Your organisation was excellent in arranging everything for us and i feel it's important to thank you for this with excellent service in everything from visas to on the ground help in China. You probably get loads of moaning emails - so it's important to give you some good emails back!

I took loads of photos on our holiday including some of the eclipse we saw on the beach at Shanghai - unfortunately the morning was cloudy and we didn't see the full total eclipse, but that wasn't your fault! I did manage some photos through the thin clouds of the approaching eclipse and also the full darkness was awesome.

I must also congratulate you on the help you gave us on the ground in China where communication can be difficult for us non-Chinese speaking people. Both hotels were good in Beijing (the Rainbow) and Shanghai (Jyulong) and particularly good were your local guides in China - Jackie who was our guide on the eclipse tour in Shanghai must be congratulated. Also in Beijing we met up with Andrew & Carmel and their family from Britain and Harry and Lee from Hawaii (who were on the eclipse tour with us) - so we joined them for a day going to the Great Wall with your excellent guide Geoff. In addition your English speaking guides that escorted us to and from railway stations and airports must be congratulated - that's your guide in Shanghai (sorry i didn't catch his name) and the excellent Michelle in Beijing.

So thanks again for all the On the Go help,

Best wishes ”

A note of thanks for the super tour to Shanghai for the eclipse!! Even though we had cloudiness, there was enough sun viewing and the darkness to make me happy. The site for viewing was just right.

Of course, we were coming off the previous 2 days of superb touring with our great group of 33 English and Americans guided by Jackie, a wonderful guide. We all seemed to have a great 5 day run in China(I know I did!). All arrangements were handled by Jackie very well. He was a joy to be with; with his orange flag we could always find him. He handled the last minute change by 3 passengers to the airport, when they had told him they would get there themselves, well. I feel he is in the right business!

Again, thank you for arranging a wonderful, smoothly running 5 day tour for this Eclipse. It has made me think positively about the 2010 or 2011, 2012 eclipse tours. Keep me in touch, please. ”

Guilin would have to be one of the most inspiring places I have visited and the Dragon's backbone is not far behind that. I would recommend this tour to anyone, especially those interested in painting as this is an artists dream.

I look forward to returning to see more of this incredible landscape.

It was a brilliant tour, with a super guide and lovely like-minded travelling companions.”
