    “Glimpse of China tour”

    Just returned from China tour booked with Lumle holidays, at a really reasonable price. I have to say that from the time I booked until the end of our trip nothing was too much trouble, Narayan dealt with me personally and would return my emails almost instantly even at night. Everything was planned meticulously so we didn’t have to worry about anything. The guides were very friendly and extremely knowledgable. We stayed in two different hotels, one in Beijing and one in X’ian, the hotel in Beijing could’ve been better but the hotel in X’ian was spot on and in a great location… All in all we had a fantastic and stress free trip… I would highly recommend Lumle holidays.
