    An excellent late evening food tour
    We arrived late to Xian, but Kathy was still willing to meet us for a food tour, and what a food tour it was. She made sure we tried all the customary local foods, and took us to only the best and freshest restaurants in the Muslim district! It was raining quite heavily, but Kathy’s energy and excitement was contagious and irrepressible. What could have been a miserable experience, was in fact a very enjoyable gastronomic evening! Kathy knows her town, and loves to see everybody enjoy it as well. Can’t say enough about Kathy and her tours! We highly recommend them!

    Xi'an 2 days
    We took a 2 days tour with Kathy. She speaks good English and was very accommodating. She sent a driver to pick us from the airport at 2am. Her driver though not able to communicate in English, was a pleasant guy..very helpful and always smiling. Transport was clean and comfy too. Kathy provided services way above expectations. She gave us lavish lunches too. She went up to Mount Hua with us and walked in the Muslim Quarters to explain the varieties of dishes. Overall, we are happy with her services and her kind personality.

    Tour in Xian
    Kathy was a good and knowledgeable English and mandarin tour guide for our trip at Xi’an. She is very informative and friendly, and was able to attend to our needs. She is also very interactive and went out of her way to help us to make our trip more enjoyable and fun. I would highly recommend her to any tourists visiting Xi’an. :)

    Kathy is Xi'an
    We found Kathy on Trip advisor and the excellent reviews given about her made us choose her straight away. It's exactly what we wanted - someone who would tailor the programme according to our interests ( mainly history and Chinese culture). She did just that. Without telling her anything she quickly realised what we were after and gave us as much information as possible. My son wanted to revisit Pit 1at the end of the Warriors tour and she waited patiently for us to do just that I was fascinated by the Muslim street food and she kept buying me one delicacy after another. It was heaven! I wanted to visit the Grand Mosque and she took us there even though it was not on the official itinerary. But the epitome of her caring nature was during the Tang Dynasty show. She didn't leave until she made sure we had great seats with an excellent view. If you want to do a Xi'an private tour do it with Kathy!

    Xian & Luoyang private tour
    This is our first trip in China with private tour guides. Kathy our guide in Xian is very experienced and gave us great suggestions when putting together the itinerary. She also helped organised our excursion to Luoyang. Michelle our guide in Luoyang was very knowledgeable and organised. Both drivers were excellent and we felt very well looked after. We are so glad to have found Kathy on TripAdvisor and had a thoroughly enjoyable trip. Private tour is a great way to visit China, we love the comfort, flexibility and access to local knowledge (food especially) which you don’t get with group tours.

    Personalised tour
    I came across Kathy’s services in trip advisor and connected with her via email and later wechat to plan for my Xi’an trip. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about Xi’an and around. She was very patient with me as we planned out our itinerary. She is also generous with tips of what to do and eat on my final day in Xi’an. Strongly recommended.

    2nd time just as good
    We first met Kathy as a guide in September 2017. We recommended her to friends who came back to us saying how great she was. We have now used Kathy for a second time with family new to the Xi’an tour. Like the first time she is everything you need in a guide - knowledgeable, caring, patient and professional. Her recommendation of local food is excellent and she always takes time to check with you that everyone is safe and happy. Nothing is too much for her. I fully recommend Kathy as a guide. Second time round she is just as kind and just as good as before. She is also very funny!

    Xian 2 days trip to Terracotta Warrior and Huashan
    My elderly parents , my husband and i took the tour from Kathy's company during our recent visit to Xian. we are extremely satisfied with our guide Wendy and the driver. We were also mesmerized by the beauty of Huashan, the tour that Kathy recommended which were not in our itinerary. Hua shan tour is the best in this first trip to Xian. Overall Xian is a very charming, clean city. i will definately visit Xian again.

    Top quality tour in Xi'an!
    Our tour in Xi'an with Kathy was excellent! My partner and I carefully researched tour options prior to our travel and after our experience yesterday, I know we made the right choice to book with Kathy. She was prompt, flexible, easy to understand and above all, was a kind and honest tour guide. While the tour was scheduled to finish at 5pm she went ABOVE AND BEYOND, taking us for a personalised tour down Muslim Street and accompanying us for a traditional Chinese massage and dumpling banquet. Kathy met and exceeded our very high expectations! If you are trying to decide what tour guide to choose in Xi'an, skip the confusion and book with Kathy. You will not be disappointed!

    Kathy a true friend
    Hi folks. We have just returned home from a couple of wonderful weeks in China. Just by chance I contacted Kathy Chen to be our guide while staying in Xian. Maybe I found Kathy through TripAdvisor, however I did, Kathy fulfilled the high reviews she receives. Kathy knows her way around. She knows how to bypass the Warrior queue so her guests are well and truly inside before the mad rush. Her expert knowledge on the local history is mind blowing. Kathy was our personal friend from the moment she met us at our hotel. The driver and vehicle at used were of a high standard. Airport pick up and delivery left us with high regard for Kathy's skills in looking after her customers. Many thanks Kathy for looking after we three so well.

    We spent the day with Kathy and had a wonderful time. She is very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our day especially visiting the Terracotta Warriors and Muslim Street.Nothing is too much trouble for this lovely lady and she also had a fantastic birthday cake delivered to our hotel for my wifes birthday.

    Awesome Tour of Xi'an with Kathy
    Kathy took my husband and I on an awesome tour of Xi'an. It was tailored to exactly what we wanted to do. Kathy is very knowledgeable when it comes to the history behind Xi'an which is exactly what we wanted. Highlight of our tour was the Terracotta Warriors and finding out the Wild Goose Pagoda is Tripitaka's Temple (Monkey Magic). She took us to a restaurant where we had the best noodles we have ever tasted. I highly recommend Kathy as a tour guide for Xi'an as she went above and beyond to make our tour in Xi'an history filled and enjoyable.

Kathy provided an enjoyable 1.5 day tour of Xi'an. She catered the tour to our needs including visiting restaurants for some delicious local food. She provided excellent insight into the history of Xi'an which made the tour more meaningful. We felt completely at ease with her and the driver and highly recommend their services.Thanks Kathy!

Kathy organized a great trip for us in Xi'An. We contacted Kathy because she had excellent reviews on tripadvisor and she did not disappoint. Kathy was very responsive over email. She arranged a custom made tour for our group of 6 including three adults and three kids (7,9, and 14) at a very reasonable rate. She made it possible for us to visit XiAn and see the museum and some main sites in a day. Kathy's driver was waiting for us at the train station when we arrived and brought us to our hotel which was selected by Kathy. The next day Kathy and the driver picked us up from the hotel and brought us to the TerraCotta Museum where we spent 2-3 hours. While we were visiting the museum the driver stayed with the car and loked after our luggage so that we did not have to take it into the museum. Afterwards, she dropped us of at the train station and made sure that we got on our train to Beijing on time. During the car ride Kathy gave us a lot of information about her city. She is knowledgable and her english is good so we learned a lot. She also has a good sense of humor. All in all, Kathy was a great tour guide and we are really happy that we found her. She is extremely efficient, reliable, on time, and trustworthy.

I found Kathy on the internet a year before we actually went to China. We were traveling with a group of 8 adults from Vancouver, Canada and had a 10 day tour booked with someone else in Beijing and Shanghai but wanted to add in the Terra Cotta Warriors and Guilin. When the time got closer I emailed Kathy again, she was delightful and extremely helpful. She picked us up at the airport with a van and driver and accompanied us to our hotel which we had arranged. The next day was a full day of activity which was highlighted by the Terra Cotta Warriors and the surrounding area. Day two was the city sites which included biking the city wall and taking us to a fabulous local restaurant for lunch! It is truly the best way to go having a local guide that you trust and can speak the language. She was professional, takes her job seriously and is thorough, right to making sure that your check in at the airport is smooth. Kathy knows when to talk and when to allow her clients to rest and absorb the sights. Feel free to ask her anything, if she can help she will, if she can't she'll help find a way to accommodate your request. Be sure to take a rain coat just in case and casual clothes! Kathy's English is very good and is easily understandable. Her rates are fare and above all she is honest. She also had a contact in Guilin and arranged our trip/guide there. Kathy helped to make every aspect of our vacation a success. I would highly recommend her :-)

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!

We spent 2 days in Xi`an with Kathy. We were 2 adults with our 3 young children.
Kathy is very knowledgeable, she speaks good English and the tour with her was interesting and pleasant. She took us to lunch in a local restaurant which was a great experience. She also insisted on giving us detailed instruction for our "free evening" as it was important for her to ensure that we will enjoy our free evening as well. She was also very sensitive to our children needs (as well as ours) and managed to build the perfect mix in her plan and was flexible to update the plan according to the changing circumstances (due to the kids' needs).
The van that was provided was spacious, clean, modern with good air condition and cold bottled water. The driver was nice and helpful as well. There were no delays or any other inconveniences.

I highly recommend her and I am sure that we will hire her again in our next visit to Xi`an.
Thank You Kathy!

We had great time with Kathy. She managed time well, knowledgeable, pleasant and very helpful. She took us to the terracotta warriors, big goose pagoda, ancient wall, and muslim street. The whole experience was very good. She was with us from 8am to 7pm. We saw a lot different places, but we did not feel rush by her at all. We definitely recommend her service.

My elderly parents and I are from Australia and we had the pleasure of using Kathy as our private tour guide and for airport pickups during our 2 night stay in Xian in mid June 2015. As previous reviewers have posted, the best thing you can do when in Xian is use Kathy and her driver because you will get top quality customer service and professionalism (that Western tourists expect) at a reasonable price, excellent timely communication in English and really get a great experience with a local who knows everything about her city.

Kathy also helped my mum bargain at local markets so we paid what the locals do, and took us to the best local restaurants (the handmade local noodles and spiced lamb in handmade flat bread were highlights). She also made arrangements so that my elderly father, with mobility limitations, could see everything with minimum effort including a wheelchair to see the Terracotta warriors. The driver was also always on time and drove carefully (which takes a lot of skill in China) so that U.S. Australians felt safe and relaxed in the busy traffic and our airport pickup and drop off was smooth. Thanks Kathy for a great time and we will definitely contact you when we visit Xian with the rest of our extended family. Best wishes to your family!

We found Kathy over Tripadvisor and booked a one day tour to the terracotta warriors and the city wall of Xi An. She replied quickly to our questions via email and so we decided to do the tour with her. Unfortunately, she had to take care of one of her family members, who was brought to hospital on the day of our tour. But she sent a colleague to guide us and he was there right at time with a driver and a very modern car. The colleague was very kind and polite, but we were a little disappointed in the beginning, as we looked forward to spend the day with Kathy according to her good reviews here.

Anyway, the colleague told us a lot about Xi An an the terracotta army and let us know, that Kathy even arranged a free lunch for us at the museum to excuse her absence. The food was really delightful and we really appreciated this nice touch. After we finished the city wall tour, Kathy called her colleague and told us, that she was free now and would like to show us around in the muslim quarter, as she knew, that we didn't see the mosque jet. Of course we aggreed. It was really nice to meet her and she took a lot of time for this extra-tour, even ate dinner with us in a local restaurant. We were absolutely satisfied with the way she handled the situation (s*** happens, sometimes you just can't help it) and how kindly she treated us. Kathy is very sympathetic, her english is excellent and she is very well informed about sights, history and news around the town. Highly recommended!! :-)

I travelled to China for business and had limited time. I'd planned to travel from Guangzhou to Xian, do a quick tour and then travel to Beijing. I had trouble booking everything from home and was led to believe it would be easier once in China. This didn't end up being the case and a day before my flight from Guangzhou to Xian I realised I had no idea how I was going to get from the airport to see the Terracotta warriors and then get to the train station and buy a ticket to Beijing.
I ended up emailing Kathy after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, told her of my dilemma and asked if she was free.
Kathy was so helpful from beginning to end, she picked me up from the airport and helped me buy my train ticket for the trip to Beijing that night, she had a private car with a driver who took us to see the Terracotta warriors, Xian city and Muslim Street. Kathy speaks excellent english and is extremely knowledgeable and also a really friendly person. We had lunch at the Terracotta warriors and Kathy went off and got lots of different things for me to try and really looked after me.
At the end of the day the driver took us to the train station and Kathy took me all the way in past security and made sure I knew were my train was leaving from.
I highly recommend doing a tour with Kathy, she went well and truly out of her way and at extremely short notice and really made my one day in Xian a memorable one.
