The trip to the countryside around Dali, organized by Henriëtte Buist from China Minority Travel, provided an interesting change after having spent a day in Dali’s bustling old town. Henriëtte has been living in Yunnan for a long time. She knows China, its culture and its language very well, and understands exactly what her customers are looking for. We walked through a small village and visited the local temple where some elderly people were busy preparing a ceremony. A great lunched followed after strolling around a village market and the trip concluded with a visit to a beautiful, quiet temple. I can recommend this trip to anybody who would like to learn more about China ‘off the beaten track’. Henriëtte's background information provides a real added value and an additional dimension for a tour like this.

After having decided Yunnan would be the destination of our next holiday, we came across an online Yunnan trip report from a Dutch couple which had been organised by China Minority Travel. Once we had made a rough itinerary, we inquired with both China Minority Travel and a larger Dutch tour operator (who had organised another Asia trip for us a few years ago). From the start our contact with Henriëtte was very pleasant, and her first response to our inquiry showed that she (unlike the other organisation) understood us and our wishes completely. When shortly before our departure to China my partner was diagnosed with a mobility problem, Henriëtte quickly adjusted a few details of our trip so we could still do the two week journey across Yunnan. During the trip everything was organised to perfection (transport, accommodation), and our guide Rick turned out to be the best guide we could ever have wished for. We enjoyed our Yunnan trip and the way everything was arranged so much, we have already decided to return to China next year to tour some of the adjacent provinces. Needless to say we wouldn’t consider anyone other than Henriëtte/China Minority Travel to organise this trip for us again. Thank you so much, Henriëtte!!

We had a very nice daytrip to the countryside with a visit of a tempel and a market. We learned a lot about daily life in China, about the minorities and we had lunch in a local restaurant. We were in China for 4 weeks and Henriette (from China Minority Travel) has put together a really nice trip were we have seen some beautiful places in China. She was our guide for the daytrip and it was nice to meet her. We have had a very intensive email contact a Henriette answered all our questions about the trip and about China

A day trip with Henriette and a driver, We did visit a small town. Best part was visit with one of the habitants, a older lady we called "grandma". We went to her home and had a nice talk with her. She offered us wallnuts and water. Henriette speaks Chinese. From the small town we went to a market a litte bit down the road. We saw mainly vegetables. Lunch was somewhere else, a muslim lunch with one beef dish and many vegetable dishes, very nice. Highlight 2 (grandma was highlight 1) was a visit to a Buddhist temple. Henriette told us a lot here. All in all, a great day. We saw a lot of things we would not have found on ourselves.

Our guide Henriette Buist from China Minority Travel organised a nice tour for our family. Henriette is a dutch expat living in China for 20 years now and it was very interesting to listen to her. Also our 3 teenage daughters were very enthousiastic about the trip.
