“We are going to be able to go back home and let everyone know what an incredible experience it was. The students will be able to let their parents know this is an opportunity of a lifetime, and we are all extremely glad that we were able to make it happen.

It has been fantastic. James, the president of Tianjiao, the operations, the tour directors have been very organized. They helped us every step on the way and solved all the issues and problems that came up. They have been caring and kind to our students and our guests on our trip. They have been more than accommodating when it comes to solving individual people’s questions, or problems, or dealing with the entire group and finding out the best solution to make all these aspects of the trip come together. I look forward to the future experience with the company - Tianjiao.”

“ How can one describe when they see one of the wonders of the world and to be able to make the music well-looking at one of those wonders of the world? I think it was one of the most exhilarating experiences that I have ever had in my entire life, and to look at the students’ eyes as they performed, and look at me, and look at the wall behind me. It was an incredible joy. I think the students’ performance was inspired. I think it is something that we will remember for the rest of our lives.”

“ I’ve never felt so strange, yet so at home in a country before, as I did in China. I would love to go back to Beijing sometime. Thanks for sharing it with us.”
