Theodorus Mar. 21, 2014 - Apr. 15, 2014

I was very much impressed with your tour guide in Beijing-Lili. She is knowledgable on the history, culture, traditions, etc. She was a great assistance in making my visit to Beijing more enjoyable. Lili has gone that extra mile with recommendations, suggestion and assistance that change a "good time" in Beijing into a "great time".

Pui Mar. 20, 2014 - Mar. 29, 2014

Robert Mar. 22, 2014 - Apr. 5, 2014

We were very satisfied with the itinerary and guide we had in Beijing last week. Gerry An is an excellent guide who exceeded all of our expectations. He is very personable, knowledgeable, and speaks English very well. He explained the sights and also Chinese culture and customs. We learned more from Gerry in three days than from all of our preparation prior to the trip. We felt very comfortable with Gerry and appreciate the way he watched over us. We feel we have made a new friend halfway around the world.

Robert Mar. 16, 2014 - Mar. 21, 2014

Jerry, our tour guide, was very helpful and very knowledgeable. We could not have asked for a better tour guide. He saw to our every need. Jerry even ordered for us at the two restaurants that we visited. The food was marvelous and there was more than enough to feed all of us. Jerry watched over us like a shepherd tending his sheep. Never once were we out of his sight. We cannot say enough about his attentiveness, his mastery of English, and his general knowledge of everything.

Robert Mar. 22, 2014 - Apr. 5, 2014

While we were in Xian Paul took excellent care of us. He is very personable, knowledgeable and patient. We had many questions and Paul was able to answer all of them. I will highly recommend China Highlights and Paul as a guide to all of my friends and family that intend to visit Xian.
