We had a great hike day along Jade's snow mountain glacier proposed by Apple. She is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. It was a pleasure to be hiking with her. I would also definitely recommend this hike, which is a relatively easy (though very rocky--take good shoes!) path to enjoy Lijiang's beautiful mountain scenery.

We had a wonderful time on a recent (August 2020) visit to the Lijiang and Shangrila region. We were very fortunate to have Apple as our guide… She knows the area so well, and also tailored our schedule to activities we’d like. For example, when we first reached Tiger Leaping Gorge we were disappointed to see huge lines of people. But Apple steered us quickly out of these lines and down to a beautiful area of the middle gorge where we had a great lunch and hike into the gorge without any other tourists. The rest of our tour was also filled with memorable and really interesting activities. We will come back and definitely use Lijiang Guides again!

Thank you Keith for organizing one of the most amazing trips of my life and I have had scores of them. Right from the start the communication was professional and all my concerns were addressed promptly. Keith runs a very exceptional guide service. I had had a fairly flexible schedule and I was taken to Tiger Leaping Gorge where we met only 4 people in our 6 hour journey through the heart of the Gorge. What a thrill! Stayed at a Government hotel in Liming drove to Shaxi Went to see the park and climbed Turtle Mountain I cant say enough about this adventure I highly recommend that you connect with Keith and he will ensure you a wonderful experience you will never forget!

Me and my wife had a 15 days tour in Yunnan with the Lijiang Guides in last november. The tour was complete, satisfying and the help, the professionality and last but dont lest the friendship of Keith and Apple (our special guide) was perfect and consented us to know Yunnan also in special and not too turistic way. We absolutely suggest Lijiang Guides, they can organize every tailor made trip also with reasonable prices.

Our trip to Yunnan included tiger leaping gorge hike as well as many day hikes. The hikes were beautiful and well organized. Our guide, Apple, was excellent and very flexible. We were surprised how hospitable the local people were, inviting us often to their house for tea. Yunnan is a beautiful and diverse region and offers some of the best hiking in the world. Highly recommended.
