          Tour with a private driver rather than a guide, disappointing
          We booked a private custom tour for 6 people with Andy who assigned another guide for our tour. The guide had a good level of English, however: 1) he was more of a driver than a guide since he explained close to nothing in all the places we visited (including the Guilin romance Park: he just brought us to the theater and out, without showing us the park which is actually decently big), 2) we finished 3 hours earlier than planned due to weather conditions so we did fewer activities and the guide had to spend less time with us, but we got no discount, 3) we provided our feedback to Andy and we literally only received a "Oh" as response.

          Amazing Views with a Great Guide!
          Andy was a fantastic guide! His English is superb and he is fun and easy to be around. We went to places we never would have known to find otherwise - and they were incredible. We also had a couple of instances of group members leaving items behind and both times Andy went to coordinate and get the items back. We enjoyed our time with Andy and wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with him in the future.

          Individualised day trip
          We had a lovely day, the guide adapted the tour to our wishes and needs - for example taking another hiking route that is less frequented and making a stop at a tea farm

          A perfect day in Yangshuo
          We arranged a private tour with Michelle, and the experience was beyond words. Michelle spoke flawless English, provided abundant information, and guided us through the main sights. We enjoyed both a scenic boat cruise and a bike tour, with Michelle patiently snapping countless photos for us. We savored a delightful traditional meal at a charming café. Our day couldn't have been more perfect. Additionally, Michelle went above and beyond to assist us in booking tickets for the Beijing hidden city, handling every request with utmost helpfulness. We can't thank her enough and highly recommend both the tour and Michelle as an exceptional guide.

          Great day out in Yangshuo
          Jackie spoke good English and was very flexible. He knew exactly where to go and which photos to take. He made all of the ticketing and admin seamless. He even bought our ice cream when we couldn’t get Weixin to work!

          Avoid crowds - late afternoon Ruyi Peak experience
          We thought we had run out of time to visit Ruyi Peak, but at 4pm we decided to make a dash for it. We booked a Didi and arrived at the Ruyi Peak ticket office 35mins later. Thankfully there was no queue and 2 mins later we were in the cable car..amazing! In an hour we were able to reach the peak, walk to and across the suspension bridge, stroll along the bridge with the glass floor, take photos and catch a cable car back to the carpark. A 2 hour round trip would probably be needed if we'd attempted to visit earlier in the day but at 430pm all tour groups had left 😁. We weren't able to find a Didi at 530pm, but there were several cars available to negotiate with for the trip back to our hotel.

          GO with Andy
          Andy was an amazing tour guide. Always on time and always smiling. Full of energy and enthusiasm. He is knowledgeable about the places, but he never inundates you with too much information. He lets you enjoy the sites silently and only adds great relevant points to the conversation. He took a few very good pictures of us with his camera and shared them. Thoroughly enjoyed time with him.

          A definite must go!
          Wished we had spent more time there, allow for at least half a day. The view from the peak was beautiful. Buying charms and hanging along the bridge was a novelty but the red charms make photographs beautiful. Highly recommended.

          Excellent private tour in Yangshuo
          I visited Yangshuo region with Andy Lee. First stop was at the unique Xianggong Hill viewpoint, a mustsee place in China. Then we went to Xingping old town and 20 RMB viewpoint, made the bamboo boat cruise in the Yulong and, in the evening, went to the Impression Sanjie Liu show in Yangshuo. All these places are magnificent and worth the visit. Andy is an excellent guide, I had a great day. Highly recommended!

          A great day in Yangshuo thanks to Andy
          I was a solo traveller who would like to visit Yangshuo just in one day after my business meeting in Chine. I found Andy from Trip Advisor. He was not available but he helped me in planning my visit. He assigned to me his colleague Peter who was excellent guide as well. If i did’t have them, i could never see so many places in Yangshuo in one day. Andy also was taking care of me in every step of my trip . I was feeling very confident. I am grateful. If you need a guide in that area, do not hesitate to contact him. He is a very professional person who does his job seriously.

          Excellent Tour and Tour guide Andy
          I had a great evening tour with Andy taking a road trip from Guilin city to Xingping fishing village. Andy was punctual, personable, and knowledgeable. He explained about the local culture and customs and we had enjoyable conversation on various topics as well. His planning was impeccable and thoughtful in that the fisherman he arranged for the evening was in a convenient and clear location away from the crowd and in clear view of the background mountains and sunset. He even looked up and gave me directions to a delicious Xinjiang restaurant in Guilin for supper after the trip. I highly recommend Andy and the fisherman tour.

          an intimate touch of China
          Magic for the off roads location. Imagine full nights without a sound... the little montains offer a stronger isolation feeling... except for the tour operators favorite spots. Food is excellent with a farming all around. And ***** for the Tea Cosy Hotel all together for his ancient chinese style covering very comfortable facilities. Staff make you at home at the first step in. Food is at the top for foreign and asian hungry people. Lotus garden keeping the back of the hotel away from sound and smell pollution...

          Made My Bucket List Trip Come True
          Cannot recommend Andy highly enough. He made my bucket list trip one of the most memorable weekends for myself and my friends. He allowed me to fully customise my trip, while also offering flexibility on the day. His prices were fair and honest, he paid for tickets/small things throughout the few days, allowing me to just pay him directly at the end to settle up. Andy was knowledgeable, well-connected, friendly, fun, safe… everything I could ask for in a guide! If you are debating whether you need a guide or not - go with Andy and you will not regret your decision! Book with him and know your time will be well organised, he will prioritise the best stuff to show you in the time you have.
