We had a great experience with the trip Lily organized with us. We visited, Lijiang, Shaxi, Shangrila and Tiger Leaping Gorge. We just told her what we wanted to see, how much hiking we wanted to do and at which level, and she organized the trip accordingly. We stayed in very nice and clean guesthouses, some of which were in traditional Tibetan and Naxi homes, where we also had the chance to try homecooked food. We had an amazing and skilled driver, and for me it was really important because the mountain roads are quite dangerous and there were a lot of landslides on the road. We wanted a guide for our tour, and we had two in total. I was really disappointed with the first one. He was not able to explain us almost anything about the history or the culture of the places we visited, and he was mostly just dealing with tickets and hotel check-in (thing that we could have done by ourselves). He would tell us that places that we wanted to visit were closed, and when we forced him to take us there it was actually open. In one city, Shaxi, he took us on a tour that he arranged too late, and all the main attractions were already closed. I was so angry that I decided to dismiss him for the rest of the afternoon and the evening. On the opposite side, for the last day we had an amazing Naxi guide that told us a lot about the history and the culture of the Naxi people and of Lijiang area, and took us on a wonderful hike to a Yi village. Overall, the organization of the trip was perfect, we didn’t have any issue with it, and when because of rain and landslide our itinerary was changed, the organizer was very quick to arrange another activity, even though I would have liked to have more options to choose from. I absolutely recommend a trip organized with them. Not only we visited beautiful places, but we also learned a lot about ethnic minorities in Yunnan. I am giving 4 stars just for the bad experience with the guide.

We stayed with a family of five ( kids 8,5,3 ) in Lily’s guesthouse at the beginning and end of our 14 days Yunnan trip. The guesthouse is cosy, inviting, with a beautiful courtyard and spacious and clean rooms. We loved spending time in the yard and Lily’s kitchen. Our kids played with her son and there were heaps of nice toys. We had nice food with fresh cooked vegetables prepared by Lily’s husband and the breakfast was a good treat and a mix of western and Naxi food. Lily is very helpful and caring. We stayed a night with them before we headed back to Beijing and it felt like coming home. Our kids loved the place too.

Great experience. The best-organised hiking tour that I have done. Lily helped organise a bespoke itinerary for our group of four over five days. We visited Tiger Leaping Gorge, Yack Meadow, and villages in the surrounding area. The accommodation and food surpassed my expectations. Our tour guide, Mr Mu, was knowledgeable, caring and extremely pleasant. Also, our driver, Mr Ho, was fantastic, at all times I felt safe, comfortable and well looked after. I thoroughly recommend Lijiang Xintou Ecotourism.

After a very last minute decision me and my girlfriend decided to go to Lijiang. I messaged Lily and explained what we wanted to do and if foreigners were allowed into Lijiang at this time because of the pandemic. Lily could not have been a better host, she checked with every tourist destination to see if foreigners were allowed in. We stayed at her fabulous, cozy and traditional guesthouse for a very reasonable price. She provided a tasty breakfast every morning, ranging from western to traditional Naxi breakfast. She also sat down with us and helped us plan out our itinerary for the week we stayed there. She rang all the tourist spots up, booked tickets for us and sorted transport and accommodation for our tiger leaping gorge trek. The warmth and kindness Lily showed us, along with the beautiful scenery made this a trip I won’t forget!

We contacted Lily through WeChat and she helped us organize a two day hiking trip through Tiger Leaping Gorge. We left from Lijiang and were taken to Shangri-la afterwards. The scenery was stunning. Lily was helpful and professional and we all loved our guide - Joey. He was friendly and knowledgeable and completely adapted to our needs. He even made a video compilation of photos from our trip. They took care of our luggage and ensured that one member of our group who couldn't hike was fully taken care of. Cannot recommend highly enough!
