* A traveler said: "The Mogao Grottoes are amazing. The dunes for a hike is also great. So much history. The tour can be done by yourself as long as you get tickets ahead of time. For English speakers I had to wait for an hour to gather other ex pats, but the tour was great with only a few people. The guide for the caves was very knowledgeable. I chose the 8 caves option."

* A traveler said: "As it was a private tour for one I was treated so nicely and full of caring from hotel to hotel service ... especially all in my control of timing and every detail. Visiting dunhuang in low season is great and there is no line up to visit the caves and English speaking on site guide is more relaxingly to answer all my questions impossible in high season as they told me tourists spendat least one hour more to enter and see only people s heads instead of Budda's head weather is cool but nice .... tour guide and driver are excellent humerous and taking care of me all the way the late lunch they brought me to is Fantastic - local personal hotpot !!"

* A traveler said: "A truly excellent day out and a lovely memory. The desert is well worth visiting - really splendid - fresh air, clean environment, blue skies, interesting rock formations and historical ruins. The day was well planned and allowed for flexibility. Decided to add a jeep ride to the tour. A great idea. The driver took us through desert routes not covered on the standard route. Cathy, the guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Her stories brought The Gobi Desert and its ruins to life! I live in a busy city so this was a completely different and memorable day out. Would recommend it."
