Lijiang Guides is the region's leading eco-tourism and cultural-tourism operation, specialising in taking visitors to non-touristy places. We can help you explore Yunnan's diversity, its 26 different minorities, and the wonders of nature - mountains, lakes, glaciers, forests and blue skies. With experience in the area since 1996, we will take you away from the tourists to the REAL China, where you can experience the place and its people. With knowledgeable guides, who speak English and local languages, you can visit villages, markets, monasteries, mountains, farms, and grasslands. We visit families, enjoy the company of locals and share meals with Naxi, Yi and Tibetan families. Plus, if you like dogs, we have Lassie the guide dog to accompany you. Lijiang Guides offers native-English speaking guides as well as local Tibetan, Lisu, Yi and Naxi guides who speak English. Welcome to south-west China.

As always, we had to plan our vacation very short notice within 14 days. This time it should go to China. Friends had invited us to Beijing. Very exciting. But we also want to see some of the countryside. How to do that in a country where only few people speak English and where we can not read a word?... More

Lijiang Guides and their tours were excellent in our experience over several weeks in March 2015 and would be happy to recommend. We would never have found and enjoyed the local experiences on our own with just a guide book and felt we were scratching well below the surface Yunnan.

She is one of the best guides we have had, anywhere in the world - pleasant, knowledgeable, chatty, energetic - a total pleasure to be with. Our days in Lijiang were the highlight of our China trip.

We had 2 days with Apple. Words are not enough to describe our impression of her in all aspects from a tourist's point of view. She has an excellent English, very good diction, she is clever and highly skilled as a guide and as a person, we had opportunities to chat almost about everything and had fun. We cannot praise...

We spent a two days tour in Lijiang surroundings with our guide Pema. The tour was well organized in each detail, very interesting and amazing. Pema knows a perfect english, experienced and professional, together we saw Tiger Leaping Gorge, Shaxi village and a beautiful tibethan monastery near Lijiang. It was a great and unforgettable experience with her!
