“A great day in Xian with Kathy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Having only one full day to see the sights of Xian seemed a daunting task. Thank goodness for Kathy! From the moment she picked us up at the hotel I new we had made the right call. Kathy had the knowledge and the personality we needed to make the day a huge success. From the Terra-cotta soldiers to a local food stall in the Muslim quarter, Kathy takes time to explain in detail the sights and sounds you are experiencing. I am not normally a "tour guide" kind of traveller, but I can honestly say that Kathy was the best choice I made during my trip to China!!

“Great trip to Xi'An”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Kathy organized a great trip for us in Xi'An. We contacted Kathy because she had excellent reviews on tripadvisor and she did not disappoint. Kathy was very responsive over email. She arranged a custom made tour for our group of 6 including three adults and three kids (7,9, and 14) at a very reasonable rate. She made it possible for us to visit XiAn and see the museum and some main sites in a day. Kathy's driver was waiting for us at the train station when we arrived and brought us to our hotel which was selected by Kathy. The next day Kathy and the driver picked us up from the hotel and brought us to the TerraCotta Museum where we spent 2-3 hours. While we were visiting the museum the driver stayed with the car and loked after our luggage so that we did not have to take it into the museum. Afterwards, she dropped us of at the train station and made sure that we got on our train to Beijing on time. During the car ride Kathy gave us a lot of information about her city. She is knowledgable and her english is good so we learned a lot. She also has a good sense of humor. All in all, Kathy was a great tour guide and we are really happy that we found her. She is extremely efficient, reliable, on time, and trustworthy.

“Xi'an in a day with Kathy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

I have to say how wonderful Kathy was. We only had a day in Xi'an so we had her pick us up at the airport and pack our day full. She did a great job of that making it fit our wants. We got to see all the main attractions, the Terra Cotta Warrior, City Wall, Bell Tower, and Wild Goose Pagoda. Kathy's English is excellent and she is very personable. She could answer all our questions and gave us wonderful details. I am so glad we had her, she made are time there great. It was well worth it.

“2 days in Xian with Kathy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

I found Kathy on the internet a year before we actually went to China. We were traveling with a group of 8 adults from Vancouver, Canada and had a 10 day tour booked with someone else in Beijing and Shanghai but wanted to add in the Terra Cotta Warriors and Guilin. When the time got closer I emailed Kathy again, she was delightful and extremely helpful. She picked us up at the airport with a van and driver and accompanied us to our hotel which we had arranged. The next day was a full day of activity which was highlighted by the Terra Cotta Warriors and the surrounding area. Day two was the city sites which included biking the city wall and taking us to a fabulous local restaurant for lunch! It is truly the best way to go having a local guide that you trust and can speak the language. She was professional, takes her job seriously and is thorough, right to making sure that your check in at the airport is smooth. Kathy knows when to talk and when to allow her clients to rest and absorb the sights. Feel free to ask her anything, if she can help she will, if she can't she'll help find a way to accommodate your request. Be sure to take a rain coat just in case and casual clothes! Kathy's English is very good and is easily understandable. Her rates are fare and above all she is honest. She also had a contact in Guilin and arranged our trip/guide there. Kathy helped to make every aspect of our vacation a success. I would highly recommend her :-)
