Description: Lijiang Guides is the region's leading eco-tourism and cultural-tourism...
Lijiang Guides is the region's leading eco-tourism and cultural-tourism operation, specialising in taking visitors to non-touristy places. We can help you explore Yunnan's diversity, its 26 different minorities, and the wonders of nature - mountains, lakes, glaciers, forests and blue skies. With experience in the area since 1996, we will take you away from the tourists to the REAL China, where you can experience the place and its people. With knowledgeable guides, who speak English and local languages, you can visit villages, markets, monasteries, mountains, farms, and grasslands. We visit families, enjoy the company of locals and share meals with Naxi, Yi and Tibetan families. Plus, if you like dogs, we have Lassie the guide dog to accompany you. Lijiang Guides offers native-English speaking guides as well as local Tibetan, Lisu, Yi and Naxi guides who speak English. Welcome to south-west China.

We spent a two days tour in Lijiang surroundings with our guide Pema. The tour was well organized in each detail, very interesting and amazing. Pema knows a perfect english, experienced and professional, together we saw Tiger Leaping Gorge, Shaxi village and a beautiful tibethan monastery near Lijiang. It was a great and unforgettable experience with her!

Our family did a trip with Lijiang Guides in early 2015, and as an expat family living in Asia, it was among the best adventures we have been on during our 8 years in this part of the world. Good clear communication and planning, personal friendly touch and understanding our needs meant we had an enjoyable time around LIjiang.

We were lucky to come across Lijiang Guides for our first trip to southwest China and we were impressed by the quality service, great communications, and personal touch, plus the fact they saved us quite a lot of money on flights and hotels. Keith is the expert on Lijiang and surrounds, and his team of local guides are equally good... More

Having had several quotes from tour companies both in the U.K. and China which, to my mind, were very expensive and did not offer the tour that we wanted, I found Lijiang guides on Trip Advisor. Having read the reviews, I contacted Keith who put together just the sort tour we were looking for at a much cheaper price. He... More

My husband and I spent 2 very enjoyable days in Lijiang in January 2015, courtesy of Pema, a local Naxi guide from Lijiang Guides. We were lucky enough to find this company on TripAdvisor and, as owner Keith was out of town when we were in Lijiang, he put us in touch with his colleague, Pema. We couldn't have been... More

We had never been to China before and had very little knowledge about Lijiang and the Yunnan Province before travelling to the area. We were looking for something different and this is exactly what we got. After a few communication difficulties hindering the planning process we finally met our guide Pema at our accommodation. She quickly put together an itinerary... More

It is really worth hiring a guide when in China, and at Lijiang Guides we found extraordinary service giving us real insight into north-west Yunnan. On our trip we used guides in Beijing and Guilin, but nothing compares to the value we got from Keith and the team. We liked his prompt replies to our emails and wise advice about... More

Had a brilliant guided tour of the Old Town followed by surrounding villages with Keith who was very knowledgable of the history of this area. We highly recommend him as a guide along with his adorable dog Lassie

We've been living in Asia for 5 years with a young family, and after some very average experiences visiting China we've come back from Yunnan buzzing after an amazing trip put together by Lijiang Guides. Very professional services, and in depth knowledge about the place meant Keith and his guides really impressed. The local minority guides Pema and Apple were... More
