Roger Phillips review 9 May 2017
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Walking wall on long empty stretches.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Make sure you don't mind short scrambles.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Supported local business. Disappointed that guide told us it was good to use bottled water as they were recycled other places we went in China hotels had large water bottles where you could fill your own bottles.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Very good but would not say it was more sustainable than any other holiday company.
Read the operator's response here:
Firstly, thank you for your comments, we are delighted that overall you had a great trip.
We would like to thank you for raising the issue of bottled water. We are actually in the process of starting a new initiative whereby all trips in China will provide clients with drinking water from a large receptacle. 20ltr bottles will be employed and clients will be able to fill up throughout the trip. We are currently trialling this approach in India and South East Asia and it has been a great sense. We regret that this wasn't quite ready for your trip but please rest assured that it is to happen soon as we take the reduction of our environmental impacts very seriously.
We do hope that this explanation provides an adequate response to your review and offers you reassurance that we are continuously working on ensuring our trips are as responsible as possible. We hope to welcome you back to China one day.
