    Dear Killian O, Thanks for your kindness to share your authentic China tour feedback online. It is nice to know that you had a great tour with us and were mostly satisfied with our guide Linda's service. We really appreciate your kind support on our company. Meanwhile, we agree with you that tipping should be voluntary and anonymous. Tipping is becoming more and more customary in China and it represents the guests' recognition on the service they received from their guides and drivers. However, it is not proper for guides to discuss tipping issues with their guests. We will remind our guides in case of the recurrence of these kind of issue. We treasure this chance to serve you and wish there will be another chance to meet you soon. Have a good day!
