Asked by Carl** Date Added:
Question: Dear Sirs,I am presently living in Jiangmen. I am interested in some of your tours, including this one, but I am on my own (alone), so the private tours are not attractive to me, due to the high price to be paid for only one person,Do you have this and other tours in an English speaking group? I have a two-week vacation in May,Any advice will be most welcome,Regards,Carlos Souza
Answer:

Dear Carlos Souza,

But I am sorry to tell you that we just had Private Tours available in Yunnan in the travel peak season. If not possible, you may think about group tours in Beijing, Xi'an, or Guilin, how do you think?
