Vivi presents an attitude of being personally involved and concerned. She was willing to make adjustments and honor requests, large or small. We are now looking forward to a great trip experience. this trip by Lily Huang of China Highlights, which I understand your firms are connected. Let me respond to your questions: 1. First of all, this was a tour so highly recommended by all of our friends in the USA and Taiwan, that we knew we had to take. And we were extremely glad to have taken this trip. Your meticulous planning coupled by Lily's detailed follow through on every aspect made it a joy throughout each day. 2. The major highlights of the Li River cruise, including the spectacular scenery pointed out at every turn of the river by Lily was extremely helpful. We also had reasonably good weather to go along each day. I am sending you one photo from the river cruise. 3. Our trip up the mountain to see the old terraced rice fields was very memorable as well. Elizabeth took sedan chair, and I walked up with Lily. The climb was not too bad, and the hotel at the top, Li-An Lodge, was another favorite. Not only were we treated to the spectacular views of these terraced fields, we had a detailed tour about the makeup of this interesting lodge, each room with its own theme related to China. 4. Just as planned, our relatives from Chengdu met us at the Waterfall Hotel on the evening of the 4th day, and we had a lovely day spent together the next one. The cave and elephant trunk hill were indeed highlights of this day, but the very active panda deserved praise as well. It was more activity by those pandas than all we had seen in Chengdu before. Thank you for planning the details of this trip for us. BTW, we are both over 65.
