I have come back from my holiday and found that my sightseeing was very good and I really enjoyed spending time exploring Beijing with my sister and tour guide. I found that my tour guide Hannah was excellent, easy to talk to and spoke great English. She always explained the tour in a lot of detail and went out of her way to help us.  The driver was also fantastic.
I found that the lunch meals were also good, but the buffet at Golden palace restaurant was very poor. 
The only problem I had with my holiday was the hotel location. The hotel was located in a very quiet, remote and isolated area. Once we were back at our hotel (roughly 5PM ) we had nothing to do and no-where to go. We only had the same restaurants to go to for dinner every day which was a shame as we did not get to explore the night life of Beijing. The hotel was also located in an area where no-body could speak English, both in the hotel and the restaurant next to the hotel. This we also found very difficult. Lastly, the breakfast at the hotel was very very poor. We always skipped breakfast because of this.
In future, I would love to book with IslamiChina again, but the location of the hotel has put me off. I would prefer for my hotel to be located in a busy, central area. 
Thank you for arranging my travels for me. 
Kind regards,

Thanks for the feedback and for your kind suggestion. The Great Wall of China is located 85km away from Beijing. So far the Golden Palace restaurant is the only Halal restaurant in that area. This restaurant also offers a prayer room with the help of Yusof Ma, the founder of IslamiChina Travel. Anyway we have talked to the boss of this restaurant to make their lunch more dilicious. 
As for the hotel in Beijing, we will remove the hotel from our hotel list for FIT travelers and we will not use this hotel in the future for other FIT travelers. We will use more conveniently located 3-star hotels for future private travelers.
We are looking forward to your next China trip.

Wa alaikum assalaam Hanna,
The tour was excellent, it was very well planned. It was great to be able to see so many sights within just 7 days. I would suggest not including Urumqi Meiyu Hotel in the itinerary - it was an awful hotel. It was dirty (there were leftover French fries and some type of food on the floor when I walked in to the hotel room). The Sunworld Hotel is also a difficult hotel to stay at - it took 30  - 40 min to check in and check out both nights that we stayed in Beijing. Otherwise, it is in a good location as it allows one to do some shopping. The hotel in Kashgar was the best of them all - an excellent hotel. I only wish we had had a little more time in Kashgar. The tour guides in each city were great, especially Abdul Wahab in Kashgar and Shan Lei in Urumqi/Turpan.

Thanks for the feedback and for your suggestion. We will remove Urumqi Meiyu Hotel from our list and we will not use hotel in the future for other travelers. As for the Sunworld Hotel Beijing, we have sent your message to their sales manager and hopefully they will improve their service. Beijing Sunworld Hotel is located right in the heart of Beijing and quite close to Dongsi Mosque and it is a super value hotel in terms of location and price.
We are looking forward to your next China trip.

To our Dear Friend Valon,  It gives us great pleasure to write to you Valin. A month ago we did not know you existed and you too did not know us. It was our great fortune to visit your great country, with its rich civilization dating back to more than 5000 years. You were always our brother, now a brother in faith too, that makes us closer. As you step into the new way of life and learning about faith, you will be surprised and enriched by it. Take it easy, and take care. The stories you told us of the kings and queens who ruled over your country are no different from other kings and queens of other countries. Every single one of us loved the people of China,their simplicity, smartness and sheer beauty of their hearts and easy manner. You stole our hearts with your straightforwardness. Much to learn from you. Our journey has just started, may it be a long journey of happiness and fulfillment.
We look forward to meeting you in America, InshaAllah.  
Amanath Jalal

As-salam Johan,
Apologies for the late reply as I was too preoccupied with the existing workload.
To sum up, my friends and I are very pleased and contented with the services provided by your good office. Ms. Lulu,  the tour guide was very much of an assistance. Not only she rendered all the serviced required, she was also willing to help us out accommodating to our needs. For instance, she had accompanied us to the Fake Market at the Muslim Quarter vicinity and helped us out to bargain the goods at a very fair price. Ms. Lulu’s vast knowledge on Xi’an’s history and environment are very impressive. She has a good command of English as well. During our stay in Xi’an, we have developed a form of friendship with Ms. Lulu as she has taken care and concerned of us quite well.
As for our driver, we have no complaints nor qualms at all against him. As he is generally a quiet and reserved person, we still feel comfortable with his presence. Like Ms. Lulu, he has also catered to our needs even it was outside his job scope. This is evident by the trip to the Tang Dynasty show.  Nevertheless, the massive traffic and “skillful” driving styles of the Xi’an people has a resemblance of Beijing’s. But I guess that is somehow normal in China.
As for Xi’an City Hotel, its strategic and convenient location has really eased our trip especially our never ending back and forth to the Muslim Quarter. The room is spacious and beds are comfy. However, the breakfast spread didn’t provide us with much choice as it was not entirely of halal meals. We just settled down with drinks and bread/mantou and fruits just to keep us going until lunch.
Lucky for us, during our entire tour, we were brought to an exclusive/high end Halal restaurants for lunches and dinners. The meals were ordered by Ms. Lulu and we really enjoyed them until every last bite with the exception of the Sichuan pepper meals.  We feel that the package of USD288 per pax was worth and value for money.
As for you Mr. Johan, we would like to thank you for arranging this wonderful trip for us. We have gained plenty of knowledge and impressed by the ancient history and civilization. The whole experience is mesmerizing and valuable. We have recommended to our family and friends and looking forward to visiting Xi’an again. Insya Allah.
