A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day with Qinqin. Tongli was absolutely beautiful. Qinqin is very knowledgeable and fun to travel with. She really made life in Tongli come alive and exposed us to experiences we would never have had on our own. Her English is excellent. I would highly recommend her as a guide!
