          Outstanding food tour experience
          Lily arranged a fantastic food tour for us with Michael. He was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and great with our children. The food was outstanding and there was so much! I would do this tour every day if I could. Though I’d probably need a whole tuktuk to myself after a while!!

          Great Experience in XiAn
          We had Cathy as our tour guide for 2 days in Xi’An. She was really patient with telling us stories on ancient Chinese history and how Xi’an was an important capital city for many dynasties. She also recommended us some really good local cuisines over the 2 days. We had a really good time overall!

          Definitely best tour in town
          Cathy did a spectacular job at showing us around the Terracotta army and Xi'An. Very knowledgeable, engaging and helpful - her style is excellent for getting a real understanding of the area, history, people and culture.

          Too much too offer, too slow to absorb
          Overall, China has too much too offer and we just can't absorb so much with such little time. Depends on individual, Lily Private Tours is slightly cheaper and worth every cent of the tour. A bit different from the other tours, the tour guide Jack (English speaking tour guide) guided us every second and explain every inch of the place we go (normally tour guide will introductory explain and you are ask to roam around). Apart from over-crowded and over-whelming knowledge input and the city jam, it was a good healthy tour, For the agency, believes the owners very attentive and ensure all your target are fulfils. We only miss our Panda tour (due to gov sudden closure) and the day tour was a bit abrupt, apart from that, the tour was great

          Day in Xi'an
          I had an excellent day with Jackie on this amazing tour. He was very informative and able to speak to with ease as there was a driver. Jackie was very knowledgeable about the sites visited, and also about life in Xi'an . The Hangyaling museum was very interesting and very evocative and not at all busy. In contrast, the visit to the terracotta warriors was very crowded, but Jackie was extremely helpful in helping me negotiate the crowds and deal with tickets, gates etc. The lunch and cave house were also both enjoyable. Thank you Jackie for an excellent day!

          Terracotta Army site & museum, Ancient City Walls, Great Wild Goose Pagoda, Muslim Quarter and shopping for a camera
          Lily is an extraordinary guide, her deep knowledge of Xian and surroundings, their history and their landmarks, her excellent English and friendly personality made the tour very enjoyable ... in addition Lily went way beyond her duty to help me solve problems unrelated to her tour ... I had broken my main camera in Taipei and wanted find a possible replacement ... Lily found a well stocked photography store (not easy in a country where most people think cell phones are cameras) which carried the brand I wanted and also shipped a couple of museum guide books back to me in Canada (which involved packaging the books and handling the post office/customs forms) ... this was a BIG contribution to make my visit to Xian a very special trip that I will always remember ... Lily also has a very good driver with a clean and modern vehicle ... Josef Hochleitner, Toronto

          Ride the Tuktuk and taste Xi’an food
          This is my second food tour in Xi’an and Buren, our tour guide took me to many places and tasted many dishes. All is good. It’s one of the best way to try the Xi’n tastes on Tuktuk.

          Historical trip and great experience
          Xi'an Tour with Michael was a great moment and educative time. Michael was very friendly and elaborated and clearly explain the History regarding the city of Xi'an. He gave us detailled information and interresting background stories. He was comfortably able to answer all our questions regarding the rich History of China. I would recommend this tour in order to have the background History behind the city of Xi'an !

          Excellent experience, highly recommend!
          Michael is a walking encyclopaedia. Throughout the tour, he did not miss a beat to provide us with the most precious details behind every artefact, site or monument. The rich knowledge of history as well as the convenient transportation made this tour one that I can recommend to anyone visiting Xi’an.

          Extremely fascinating tour
          Extremely fascinating and well organized tour. The explanations of our guide Michael were very interesting, he speaks very good English and is familiar with thousends of years of Chinese history. He's also a very nice person. The Terracotta Army is one of the most impressive things you can ever see and experience, but without Michael's explanations the experience would not have been half as deep. The museum is also worth seeing (and one of the few sightseeing spots in China where you don't have to fight your way through crowds). And the lunch with the freshly prepared noodles tasted good, too. We can only recommend this tour.

          Excellent, fun, efficient, food tour. Would definitely do it again.
          I did a wonderful evening food tour with Michel Chang. I highly recommend doing this and I would definitely do it again. We tried so many delicious dishes and Michael did an excellent job of explaining the food and the history and answered lots of questions I had about everything!! We went to places that I would not have known to go, or been able to efficiently go all around town, and had dishes I would not have known to try!!! Thank you Michael and thank you Lilys tours

          Amazing day with an excellent guide and I unique experience
          Michael was AMAZING! We started with the Hanyangling museum- a perfect opening for understanding the time period of the terra-cotta warriors. Frankly, I found them much more interesting (though not as awe-inspiringly amazing) than the warriors. There, you see everything in the tomb. Also, there was hardly anyone there, so we could easily take our time. Michael is a great storyteller and gave rich information on life at that time period. We went on to have a marvelous lunch. I have celiac disease and was amazed that Michael took such great care to find a place where I could eat gluten free food! I almost cried with happiness to be able to try the famous food from Xi’an! Something I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own. He even took the time after the tour to help me find more food I could eat. From there we went to the warriors, which are remarkable on their own, but once again Michael brought things to life. Stopping by a yangdong afterwards gave an interesting view into a unique and ancient lifestyle. Since leaving Xi’an I have passed several other yangdong and it was cool to have a sense of what they’re like inside. I highly recommend this tour, and Michael in particular for his care, his storytelling, his knowledge and his overall great company! His English is excellent- certainly one of the best guides I’ve had in China. Thank you Michael for the special day!

          Amazing Historical Sites and Excellent Tour Guide
          The highlight of this tour was the historical sites of the two terracotta armies. There is so much history in Xi’an and our tour guide was professional and provided very good explanation. Our tour guide and the drive provided excellent services. Our group totally enjoyed this two-day tour. The only improvement I want to suggest would be more timely response from the tour operator. I was asked to communicate via WhatsApp. I sent a couple of messages to the tour operator and noticed after 24+ hours that the messages were still not being read. Eventually, I asked the tour guide to relate my messages to the tour operator and obtained the answers through the tour guide.

          A trip to Mt. Huashan
          I went hiking to Mt.Huashan. I really loved it, the views are spectacular. It is really a once in a lifetime experience. I went there with tour guide Michael Chang from Xi’an. He really made the experience a lot better. He is a great tour guide. I would really recommend booking with him.

        I learned about this tour while browsing tours to see in Xian on the TA website. I elected to arrange the tour with Lily's help. I was very pleased by the promptness of all replies and her willingness to fine tune the itinerary to our interests. Note that while the tour was not personally given by Lily, she arranged all aspects of the tour in a flawless fashion. We were picked up from our hotel and from the train station on time. The vehicles used were comfortable and the drivers all courteous. Our guide in Xian, Frank, was outstanding. I would recommend that anyone request his services when arranging a tour. Frank had a solid knowledge of the history of the area and excellent working knowledge of the sites we visited. I had requested that the tour, that normally is only the Shaolin Temple site and Longman Grottoes include a stop at Guanlin Temple. Lily was hesitant, fearing that we would not have enough time to adequately see the Shaolin and Longman Grotto sites. However she was willing to try and accommodate my request. Our train arrived a little late due to inclement weather and Frank hurried to get us to the Shaolin Temple, our first stop, on time. He was able to contact a friend to allow us to enter through a back entrance so as to be able to see the morning show on time (had we not been able to see that particular show we would have been unable to stop at Guanlin). In the end, we were able to see all of the sites. Both my partner and I ranked the Grottoes as the best site, the Guanlin Temple second, and the Shaolin Temple third and we were very happy to have had the opportunity to see everything we wanted thanks to Frank. I would definitely recommend using Lily, Frank, and the rest of the team
