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. « less

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

We can only say good things about our time with Lijiang Guides, from the moment I got in touch with Keith through to the communication after the trip, everything was great. He helped with our itinerary, flights, hotels, and also some other requirements for our trip, and we liked his service which was both personal and professional. With Keith we... More

Having decided to explore Yunnan by ourselves, by the time we got to Lijiang we realised we wanted to have less of a touristy experience, so we contacted Keith at Lijiang Guides and he helped put together a nice package starting Lijiang then going to Tiger Leaping Gorge and Shangrila. With Keith and his team -including Jing in Shangrila -we... More

This is the only negative review we've had, and there is some important information we need to say as the main reasons for the guests' dissatisfaction relates to their personal circumstances. We checked with the guide in Lijiang and the transport co-ordinator for the Dali-Kunming trip and their reports are quite different from the views given by the guest in... More

As a Westerner living for 7 years in Li jiang speaking Chinese and a bit of local Naxi dialect Keith provided us with great insight into the history and culture... More

Great expereince through Keith...he was on visa run, but there was no shortage of great experiences with his guide buddies. They showed us the local cuisine, gave us insights into the people and ethnicities, arranged a lunch with a lovely lady, Ms. Liu at her house, showed us around the old town and Baisha, and pointed us in the direction...
