Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the trip. We spent a few more days in Hong Kong before we flew home, including… a visit to Macau. It was nice to spend a few days in one place before heading home. It was a pleasure to visit with you again. I appreciate all that you do to make our tours run so smoothly. “A smooth trip”
