Dear Fish

I have been back in Australia a week and catching up on all my emails and like here.

I wanted to let you know I enjoyed the Tolou tour and Nick was a wonderful guide, very patient as we took lots longer I am sure than others because of our photography.  I think we have done a bit more walking than others as well.

I found it all so interesting and especially staying in the tolou, although very cold at night.  

A suggestion - in the future, advise customers that is much colder in the mountains compared to Xiamen.

Kind regards.
