Nikky and I were both delighted with the services we received from Canton Business Trips on our recent trip to the Canton Fair. Everything regarding our comfort was thought of. Before we went they helped sort out our Visas, then when we arrived in Hong Kong a car was sent to transport us to China. We were given Chinese mobiles to help us keep in touch with our offices and also with the staff in Canton who accompanied us to the Fair each day and were there to help with translations and negotiations. Our hotel was very comfortable. Evenings were fun.  We dined each night in a different restaurant. We had a very interesting mix of people. As well as people from the gift trade, we had a gentleman from Scotland who was building houses in Nairobi and was looking for flat packed kitchens, a young South African who was looking for smoking requisites, a Welsh man who was sourcing pet products & agricultural machinery,  to mention a few.

We had been to Hong Kong many times and apart from taxi drivers, language was never an issue. This is definitely not the case in China. Even the English spoken by the staff in our hotel was not brilliant. Both Nikky and I were so pleased we had gone with Canton Business Trips for this reason alone. If we had been on our own, we would undoubtedly have dined in the hotel each evening, communication outside the hotel being such an issue.. The other big plus were the Chinese Staff with Canton Business Trips. It was great to have them to talk to and to learn a bit about Chinese culture.

One day we even managed to get in some shopping and again Canton Business Trips were there to help. We went to a Walmart – hard to believe but true! It was very interesting to see Oreo cookies for sale alongside dried chicken feet!

We will definitely be using this company in the future and would not hesitate to recommend them to other companies. What more can we say except they are BRILLIANT!

Thanks very much for a brilliant visit. I felt like I was on holiday apart from having to get up in the morning. My every whim was catered for.

I'm definitely coming back – I think the HK fair sounds good and so please can you look into that for April – assume it runs at the same time as Canton Fair?

You business comprises a wonderful team and it really feels like a family unit – something I aspire to at my company. Annette Lees Managing Director

I have been on many many journeys overseas and I can honestly say the way in which I have been received by you and helped in every way has been exceptional and exceeded my hopes and needs by a long way and also met so many nice business people along the way and will have many nice memories of our hours together.

I now would like to consider you as " friends " and besides wanting to do some business together I can and will recommend you to anyone who is looking to do business in China and wants to have the very best help and service.

My deepest thanks and warmest regards to you all.
