China Highlights, May 2014
Bottom line - whole thing worked well, no drama, good group, good leader and Chinese (mostly!) very nice. 'Gina' was a good leader - she suffered a little by having a couple of 'groupies' from the previous tour who seemed to hang around with her whenever the group was left to explore an area. Not her fault but something for her perhaps to be aware of. But really only a minor comment.
