    "The trip was fantastic, a good combination of north and south of Yunnan. I had many chances to meet locals and eat locally. The markets at Yuanyang were fascinating."

    "Our guide Tony and driver Zhang were excellent. They did whatever they could to make a fantastic holiday for us. This part of China was not visited by many foreigners and we enjoyed being taken photos with. Tiger Leaping Gorge was a wonderful place to trek, I wished we had more time to explore more of Yunnan."
