    Thank you very much for all of your work setting our Xinjiang tour.
    It was great to be there! All of the places we were such great places I never expected.
    We'd like to be there again but there are so many places we'd like to be in China.
    If we are going to go back, I will contact you again and also if our friends will go
     there I will recomend your company.
    Thank you again.
