Guizhou is a province of the People's Republic of China located in the southwestern part of the country. Its capital city is Guiyang. Guizhou is a relatively poor and economically undeveloped province, but rich in natural, cultural and environmental resources. Demographically it is one of China's most diverse provinces.

My boyfriend and I were on a time constraint to see the rice villages. We only had a day and needed to get to the airport by 230 for a flight. I set it up about a month prior with Andy to pick us up in our hotel in yangshou, visit the rice terraces for a few hours, and drop us off at the airport. Andy was able to answer a lot of questions for us and pointed out things at the terraces we would have previously not noticed by ourselves! Thanks for a great and easy day, Andy!

Delicious and delicate. The food in Guangzhou is the best. The old town is worth visiting if you want to know history and cultures of Guangzhou. Travelling in Guangzhou is not so difficult except for some language problems until recently the GZ government has had an interpretation hotline(+8620960169), which can provide great service for public affairs and government services. I used several times taking taxi and asking for directions, the interpreters are quite professional.

DO NOT use this tour company if you are not from China. Our experience was nothing but a huge disaster. We ended up paying to literally experience the land on our own and get completely lost and we were not able to enjoy the beauty the rice terraces had to offer. The tour company only gave back half our money after all the struggles we went through and many many emails later.

Sophia was a delight. She was an excellent guide in trying to make the day not only Informative but also fun. She and the driver, Mr. Wu, took very good care of me through a very long (because of traffic) day.

Private city tour of Hong Kong exceeded my expectations in every way! Having a local guide was immensely helpful in seeing all of the city highlights in a day. My guide was so kind, knowledgeable and tailored the tour to my interest. We hit all the major tourist sights AND got to see how Hong Kong locals live and, most importantly, eat! Such a delight and I will DEFINITELY use them again when I return to see Big Buddha and the few other spots I missed. Do yourself a favor and get a guide. Made the vacation unforgettable.

If you are planning a trip to Guilin + surroundings, Andy is your Guy. I know Andy since 2015 and booked all my four trips to Guilin through him. This included trips where I only needed assistance to book the Li River Cruise and an airport transport but also fully customized private luxury tours with my family. Andy (or members of his team) were always on time, always friendly and helpful, always driving safely and always interested to make the most out of your trip. Professional, trustworthy, perfect English and always a great experience.
