Just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful trip. Mother and I had so much fun. I came home and told my friends about our trip and they want to go. We absolutely loved Chinatown. We took 907 pictures!! You and Dina were wonderful!! The both of you made our New York trip a great experience. I can't tell you how much this trip meant to both of us. The restaurants the two of you took us to were out of this world. We just wanted to say thanks so much for making it so great. Lissa C. - Texas
