I contacted Travel China Guide to help me arrange a private airport to train station transfer, train tickets between Kunming and Dali, and a 3-day solo custom private tour that included Lijiang, Xizhou, Shihgu, Yuhu, Shuhe, Baisha, Shaxi, and Tiger Leaping Gorge. Doris Chang was my contact and she was a star from the get-go: responsive, patient, professional, and thorough. Our pre-trip planning email communication was seamless. Once in China, we communicated by WeChat. Mike, my English-speaking airport to train transfer guide in Kunming was also great. Mike was friendly, professional, and made sure I got on the right train. Kevin was my Dali-based guide who took me around Xizhuo, Shaxi, and the Shizhonshan Grottoes. Alice, my Lijiang-based guide, took me around Lijiang, Yuhu, Shuhe, Shigu, and Tiger Leaping Gorge. Kevin and Alice were friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. My private driver was also excellent. Travel China Guide delivered excellent, trouble-free service. I look forward to arranging future trips with Travel China Guide. Thank you!

We have arrived to Lijiang directly from raw and grey landscape of Tibet. Our guide, Daniel from travelchinaguide.com welcomed us at the airport with big and warm smile, and in excellent English gave us the general info about Yunnan province and took us to the hotel in the middle of the old town. It looked a bit commercial nowadays, but still you can smell the atmosphere of old trading towns. Silver, fruits, jade, the art next to the junk... Just beautiful. And next day we went to visit traditional Naxi people embroidery school. This is a must for anybody sensitive to the beauty of hand made art. Two pieces of the embroidery art are now hanging on the wall of our Warsaw apartment. And the Lijiang adventure was coronated by a nature trip to Jade Dragon Mountain. After visiting the emerald meadow, Daniel lead us along the river for a nice stroll. On top, after we were already back to Poland it turn out that we needed an extra document from China to clear our embroidery at the customs. We asked Daniel to help us to solve the problem and Daniel acted immediately. Thanks for your help Daniel, thank you travelchinaguide.com!

I can't say enough about how wonderful our trip was. Linda who organized the trip was on top of every detail. We went back and forth on a couple of details but really relied on her top-notch expertise to guide us. Traveling during Spring Festival had some challenges because some things were closed yet all of our three guides were always able to find us a good resturant for meals. Ivy met us at the airport and showed us around for 2 days in Lijang and area. Knowledgable, fun and energetic she was just a joy to be with. When I expressed an interest in the embrodiery schools, we stopped for an extra visit. Ivy also arranged for us to get tickets to a cultural show in Lijang and ran and got the tickets while we were eating lunch! She went well beyond any expectations. Jennifer met us to bring us to Tiger Leaping Gorge and gave us some wonderful history and information on ethnic minorities.Tashie met us at Tiger Leaping Gorge to continue our trip toward Shang ri La. As a Tibetan, he had amazing knowledge concerning Buddhism and Tibetan culture and we learned so much. He even invited us to visit with his family for the Lunar New Year- what an amazing experience. OUr flight out was cancelled and Tashie waited outside the airport for nearly 8 hours to ensure we got out. Mr. Ho our driver was excellent on some particularly challenging, winding roads. Hotels were great- Ivy Garden in Lijang and Shang ri La Resort. Meals were varied and really good restaurants. It was a pricey trip particularly because it was Spring Festival but worth every penny.
