About Jeff Private Tour-Day Tour
Hello, this is Jeff, I am a private professional English speaking tour guide with more than 10 years experience in Xi’an. I am still doing it, simply because that I just love this job. For most of the westerners who plan to visit China, it is very important to have a reliable guide because of the language barrier. As a local citizen of Xi’an city, I deeply love this city and the people, I will try my best to assist anyone who desire to discover the time-honored culture and authentic local people’s lifestyle during you visit Xi’an. You are welcome to contact me!

I feel i need to mention this up front. When hiring a private guide, we generally prefer to hire an individual with positive Tripadvisor feedback. In contrast to travel companies, this guarantees that you hire the person who has been reviewed. Now, you need to realize that this is *not* a one man operation. I am just saying that looking at the Tripadvisor reviews, one might form this impression. Now - I know how negative this might sound, and yes, we did not feel warm and fuzzy when we were picked up at the train station not by someone we had expected to see based on Tripadvisor pictures. HOWEVER - note my ultimate 5 star rating, and please read on. Yes, every guide in this small outfit (it appears they have about half a dozen gents there) is named Jeff. They all are getting five star reviews; and our case was not an exception. In the end "our" Jeff turned out to be the very competent, most caring, kind, hard-working guy imaginable. Our comfort and our traveling wishes were his highest priority in the two days together. It is important to mention that this company was the only one that took up our - admittedly unusual - itinerary around Xi'an. Because some places we traveled to were obscure and off the beaten path, we had some adventures along the way. Jeff deserves absolutely the highest marks for perseverance, thinking on his feet, pushing through, and commitment to our success. Highest marks.

My family and I used Jeff's services for a day tour of the Terrecota Warriors and the wall.He was very easy to work with while setting up the day via email. We were picked up promptly from our hotel at 8am to start our day. Jeff was professional, spoke great English, and was very knowledgeable. We were entertained during our entire hour drive to the warriors. He was flexible to our needs during the entire day and had some great suggestions for what to do after he left us. I would definitely recommend Jeff for a day in Xi'an.

In October 2014, we, two senior citizen ladies, spent a day with Jeff as our guide for a visit from Xian to the small pottery village of Chenlu. The village being remote and not on the regular tourist circuit, he went out of his way to make enquiries and made our visit really interesting and enjoyable. He speaks good English, was punctual, well organised, friendly and patient! Thank you Jeff for a memorable day.

For anyone looking to see the Terracotta warriors and Xian, I highly highly recommend Jeff. 1) He was amazing to work with when setting up the tour. 2) Incredibly understanding and flexible when I missed my morning flight into Xian 3) Very knowledgeable about the sites and attractions - I learned alot 4) But most of all - he's very considerate. Once the tour was over, he walked with me into the terminal to make sure I got onto the flight safely. I have only 2 regrets: 1) That my time in Xian was so short and 2) I realized that I did not tip Jeff and the driver an amount that showed my true gratitude for a great day.
