My wife and I were delighted when we had the opportunity in visiting China and our highest priority was to visit beautiful Guilin. To maximise our cultural and social experience, Wendi Wei stood out as the guide to go with. From the first of many emails, she instilled a sense of confidence through her excellent English, extensive knowledge, prompt response to emails and her commitment to customising a tour exclusively for us. All this combined with Wendy’s bubbly, friendly personality, and her enthusiasm made it a memorable holiday!
Wendy is very professional, plans thoroughly, pays a attention to detail but, at the same time is flexible. She adjusted our itinerary with minimum fuss when the Li Jiang River was closed to small boats when we were due to explore it. No problem. The following afternoon, when the river was again open to boats, we completed the cruise on a larger vessel, and the scenery was wonderful! Also on the Li Jiang River at Yangshou, we enjoyed the most spectacular event: Impression – Third sister Liu show with a magnificent backdrop of 12 mountains framing the massive stage. This not-to-be-missed, world-class, show with an audience of 2,000 people each at 3 shows per night, featured a cast of 700 local villagers in colourful costumes with spectacular lighting of the surrounding landscape, was conceived by the Director of the Beijing Olympic opening and closing ceremonies, so we got to experience some of that Olympics magic!
Other highlights included visits to minority villages, and a meal with a village family in their home, in the Long Ji rice terraces. The scenery was spectacular!
Wendy gave us a good insight into beautiful, clean and friendly Guilin where the river and lakes are lined with extensive landscaping, manicured gardens and adventurous walkways leading to secluded spaces where people congregate in the early morning to practice tai chi, play music and dance and to the spectacular twin (sun and moon) pergodas that complement to fairyland lighting of the Guilin waterways at night.
To experience the best of China, we strongly recommend Wonderful Wendy Wei.
