“Incredible! An experience that I will remember all my life!  The trip went far beyond what I expected!
The places we visited were a dream come true...the level of the personalized TaiJi and Qigong were
worth the price of the trip alone...adding in the delicious meals that Rebecca personally ordered.
I recommend this trip to anyone who wants a  memorable journey...one that goes
far beyond any ordinary tour.!   R. Whitehall

I really enjoyed EVERY MINUTE. It’s true! I loved the whole thing.
There were high points every single day.
Amazing agenda. So rich...so full. I was mesmerized at each turn,
so many cultural norms to observe, besides all the exquisite locations we visited.
Thank you so much for ALL you did to make this fantastic trip happen.”   K. Kunkel
