We live in Nanjing.
We took your tour on Tuesday, May 28th to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs. The van arrived on time to pick us up and it was clean and comfortable. The driver drove safely. Christina was our tour guide and we are happy to say that she did a wonderful job. She spoke very good English and had a good knowledge about the Great Wall and Ming tombs. In addition, she was able to give us some information on Chinese culture and the Chinese people. She had a very positive attitude and was personable.
Our only complaint about this tour was the imposed time requirements at the jade silk factories. Although we found the factories interesting we were not happy that at both places we were not allowed to leave, even after we had purchased an item. We had to remain in the showroom for a specific amount of time that this tour company required. This was very inconvenient for us. We had a long day visiting many sites and we didn't want to sit an extra 15 minutes in any show rooms just to satisfy your company's requirements.
You might think about changing this rule. As tourists, we like to see things of interest but not be forced to stay somewhere for a certain amount of time. Especially when it is not a tourist attraction but a big store where all the sales people keep pressuring us to buy things---even after we already bought.
This part of your tour left us disappointed and actually angry towards the end of the day because we were tired!
We are happy to recommend your company to other tourists if you consider changing this policy. We are definitely happy to recommend Christina to any of our friends who may be looking for a tour guide.
