A perfect day in Xi'an
Sep 2019
We only had a very short stay in Xi'an and therefore booked a private guided tour for one day. Kathy showed us all the sights and told us a lot about the area and China. In the evening she got us tickets for a very nice dinner show and even organized the transfer. All in all a perfect day - thank you Kathy!

Best tour of Xi'an for a family of 5! Try this one!
Jul 2019 • Family
Kathy was super well spoken and provided a great deal of information about all of the monuments we saw on our whirlwind tour of Xi'an and the Terra Cotta Warriors. She has been giving these tours for 15 years and it shows! She was VERY helpful walking us through Muslim street and the rest of Xi'an and was patient with our group the whole time. Definitely recommended!

Best tour I have taken
Jun 2019 • Couples
Our tour guide Kathy was the best guide I have had on a trip anywhere. She met us at our hotel with a private van and driver promptly at 8am. We visited the Terracotta Warriors, had a wonderful lunch at a local restaurant, viewed the city wall, the bell and drum towers, the Muslim Quarter, and Big Wild Goose Pagoda. At every stop we made Kathy gave us accurate and interesting facts about the site. Her knowledge of the history of Xi'an and all of the sites we visited was extensive. She could give you as much or as little about the place as you wanted to hear. With her as our guide, we went to the best spots to view various sites. She led us to vantage points instead of just pointing us at a door and giving us a time to meet up. It was truly a guided private tour. Having been on tours in China before, I must say that Kathy is the most professional guide I have ever had, and she made the experience extremely enjoyable. She went at our pace, which was important because my wife and I were traveling with my parents on this trip, both of who are in their 70's.

One week holiday in Xi'an
Jun 2019 • Family
We went to Xi'an during the fasting month of Ramadhan and celebrated Eid at Xi'an. Kathy was very helpful and made necessary arrangements for us to find the best food vendors in the Muslim Street and showed us the location of mosques we could visit. Kathy is efficient, friendly and very accommodating. She connected us with Lisa in Luoyang where we visited the Longmen Grottoes and the Shaolin Temple. Lisa was also an excellent tour guide who went out of her way to assist us and made the trip very memorable. Overall, the trip to Xi'an and Luoyang was great and we extremely enjoyed the visits and more importantly the delicious halal food in Xi'an and Luoyang.

2 full day visits of Xian
May 2019 • Family
We have Kathy set up our 2 days tour of Xian, besides arranging for pick up from the airport and going to the airport at departure, for our family of 6. 5 adults and 1 teenager. 4 of us have been in Xian before. Kathy took us to the Teracotta museum, a shop with good artifacts, lunch at a nice local restaurant with many local dishes, the pagoda, drum tower, bell tower and the city walls. She explained things to the family. The vehicle arranged was comfortable. Kathy was always pleasant and professional We all thoroughly enjoyed her services.

Very informative and meaningful visit to the historical sites, Xi’an
Apr 2019 • Couples
Miss Kathy was very knowledgeable with the historical facts of the history in Xi’an far back 2000 years ago. This is my first hand knowledge of the ancient China Emperors and the warriors livelihood especially the Terra-cotta army, Pagoda, Drum Tower.
Worth the trip to the city where the Silk Road eastern end, and the home to various dynasties of china’s Emperors. The friendly Kathy and the driver are helpful and friendly.

amazing xi'an tour and awesome kathy!
Dec 2018 • Couples
this is our first trip in China and I was travelling together with my old parents. kathy is a super host and not your ordinary tour guide. she has a great knowledge on xi'an history and explained to us about the Chinese culture in detail. all of us including myself walked very slowly but she patiently waited and walked together with us and even hold my mother's hands. though my parents don't speak English or understand her, but they really like the way that she took care of us, explaining about the food and attended to our request. highly recommend her for whoever wants to visit xi'an anytime soon

Retracing the footsteps of Emperors and Concubines
Oct 2018 • Friends
From the word go at Xian train station bubbly Kathy breezed us thru 4 days of enchanting adventure of food, culture, history, palace scandals and concubine intriques to usurp power and glory. Being a Xian native her knowledge was intimate and comprehensive and listening to her narration in English was following a historical novel peppered with courtly grandeur, political skull duggery, bedroom intrigues and mammoth monuments for the afterlife.

We, 3 elderly couples from Singapore, were unanimously impressed by Kathy's eloquence and care for our personal needs for 5 relaxing and most enjoyable days.
Only Kathy's energy, personal care and knowledge could deliver such indelible memories of 2500 years history and myths of China's rich and grandious past.

Our personal gratitude to a new friend who vowed to visit Singapore to taste our very own Emperor, of fruits, DURIAN. The taste of which can secure idelible memories too.
