Guide recommendation for Bryan Bai Chen

I recently completed a business trip to Beijing and made a quick side trip to Xi'an. It never occurred to me to look here for a guide. Instead I got a recommendation from work colleagues. When I saw his website

http://www.xianhistorytourguide.com/ I could tell he was high quality. Bryan responded very promptly to my inquiry and all pre-trip contact and organization was smooth. I had a special request to change his suggested itinerary for the day, and he was willing to be flexible. He and his driver were early to pick me up, and he immediately began providing lots of information about the history and culture of Xi'an. We spent a full day sight-seeing and he made all the logistics like ticket-buying and souvenir shopping seamless. Lunch at the noodle shop outside the usual tourist scene was delicious. Bryan's English and knowledge are excellent and he is very friendly and sincere. I have a much deeper understanding of Chinese history, culture, and religion than I would have if I were simply reading signs or a guidebook. It was a great experience. I can highly recommend Bryan to anyone.
