Jessica & Nanae Warren-Hart  July 2014

A long overdue email to you.
My girls had a really tremendous trip.  All down to you for incredible planning, great flexibility and astonishing action at short notice.  This trip went from dream to execution in the space of 3 weeks.Your support in collecting Visas as the girls passports became available for days and hours was second to none.
I have a forensic attitude towards service and product delivery and I rate you amongst the best I’ve encountered.
It is without reservation that I recommend your product – you being an intrinsic part of it.
Kind regards,
Lynda Warren

I am now at the end of my incredible trip, travelling in two continents, traversing 8 or 9 time zones on land, meeting different races, various cultures and many incomprehensible tongues and scripts. It has been a wonderful experience and education. Trip has been very well organised. I must admit I was a bit apprehensive at the start of my journey but as I went on, I became more confident. Tomorrow, I take 7.30 am train to Beijing. Now when people stop me in market place in Gt. Yarmouth and ask me if I had done this trip or not, I know what answer to give. They all know about this trip. At my age of 71yrs. I have managed to do it, for which I feel very proud, physically in excellent shape to undertake the stress and strain of 9500 km train journey.

Best wishes from Ulan Bataar.
