    Hello, your travel company was recommended to me by my friend Sally Blakemore, who spoke very highly of you, especially your representative Linda.
    I have time from Sept 7 - 20 and would like to see as much of the Guilin area as possible. I am interested in river and biking tours - I am fit so any amount of biking/walking is fine.
    Could you help me with an itinerary? I can leave Hangzhou in the eventing of Sept 7, and need to catch a flight back to the US at 15:55 in Shanghai (PVG) on Sept 20. I can book my own air travel to Guilin if that is easier.
    Please let me know what the options are, and I look forward to working with you!
    Best, Kate
