We found Steven through a colleague who recently took a similar trip. We are a group of 6 people and we are very happy with the itinerary and service that Steven provided for us. He has been very professional, patient and proactive to our needs. He also has a wealth of knowledge about the region, so we learned a lot from him. The hotels we stayed in and the restaurants we dined in all met or exceeded our expectations. Steven is a trustworthy guide and you can definitely rely on his experience and professionalism to make your trip a memorable one.

Steven has been a travel agent with plenty of experience in this region. During the 8-day-trip, he was not only arranged the intereting sites of visitings, but also took good care of clients needs. Therefore, we have learnt from him about Chinese history and culture. etc. We had tried delicious foods and beverages.

The entire tour was well planned with experienced guides. Hotel accommodation is possibly best in location and buses are clean & comfortable. The meals are also very good with various variety offered. If anyone considering a tour to Dunhaung, this tour is a good option to choose for.

It seems difficult to find a better tour operator and guide in Gansu Province than Kang Jinxin (or Steven, if you have trouble pronouncing Chinese names). Do you need a vehicle? A place to sleep? Do you need advice what to see? Steven has all the answers ready for you and in case he hasn't, he will move Heaven and Earth to find one. And by the way, he knows the best places to eat all around Gansu! Our group of 10 peoples and friends from Switzerland really appreciated his services and we warmly recommend him.

We are an American family that visited China in 2015 and this company did a fantastic private tour for us! They listened to our concerns and desires, were always prepared and organized, and had informative and friendly guides. There is no way we would have seen nearly as much stuff without them! We recommend it to all our friends!

I went on this trip through CIEE Shanghai with other foreign exchange students. I was a little nervous because of the pressure of visiting a new place, but our tour guides, Steven and Peter, were very sociable. During our bus rides, I would sit next to them and discuss where I came from, ask them questions, etc. Both tour guides are extremely familiar with the area and its history. They helped us keep track of how many of us there were, always counting our large group whenever we were about to leave. Because of their preparations, I was able to enjoy my time here and leave the place with plenty of knowledge on Gansu/Dunhuang culture.

Steven is a professional guide. Easy to communicate with, prompt, pro-active and trust-worthy. We had a great time exploring this part of the Silk Road, Steven knew the best way to maximize our visit, he prepared us well about what to expect on each stop and listened intently to what our preferences were. All in all, a great way to explore the less travelled places in China. When we do this part of China again, I will surely get in touch with Steven!

My students (from a U.S. private University) and I had a study tour of the Silk road. Steven, our soft-spoken tour guide, did a fantastic job!! Thank you very much, Steven!!! He provided great information about each location we visited, and he managed the group (over 30 people) so well that we had adequate time for every place we visited, and for every activity we engaged in.
Steven was very punctual, paid attention to details, and engaged well with the group. The accommodations he arranged, and the restaurants were we ate, were simply the best! During our overnight train from Lanzhou to Dunhuang, he somehow made it happen that the group members stayed together in the cabins. This was awesome and relaxing! Steven recommended great local snacks for the group to experience in the night market in Zhangye; and he gave souvenirs to all the group members. That was pretty cool of him, and very well appreciated!!
Steven is very knowledgeable about the Gansu province, and he provided solid answers to my many questions about the province, including questions about random observations I had, while we were on the train back to Lanzhou.
In a nutshell, Steven was great!!! Thank you Steven again for a wonderful experience.
