I would like to thank Arthur Frommer for "In Search of Tourists, China Is Launching Remarkable Deals" [Aug. 17]. I took his recommendation (as did almost everyone in our 24-person group) and took a 12-day tour to China offered by China Focus. It was a great vacation at an unbelievably low price.
China was the No. 1 country I had wanted to visit, and the tour prices (only $1,000 with everything included -- air travel, hotels, in-country travel, entrance fees and all meals) made it possible.
The hotels and the food exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide always had the answers to any questions or problems.
Climbing the Great Wall was the highlight for me, but seeing the other locations we visited continually impressed me. I have also never traveled with a group that was so satisfied with a tour and had so few complaints.
