The Chinese people we met were very friendly. Most of the places we visited were good choices.
I appreciate that we were not taken to a lot of shopping venues.
Because the group was small, we were able to go some interesting places.
We were able to go to local restaurants, which were good.
Boat was beautiful, entertainment was good, the river guide was great, very knowledgeable.
The dinner food on the boat was not as good as I had expected. Except for the last night, the amount of meat in dishes was pretty thin. Breakfast was ok.

The part of the trip from Xian to Guilin was difficult because of having to get up very early, travel extensively and get to the hotel late. Having to do that twice in a few days was not fun and made everyone very tired.
