Check What our Customers Say...

Hi Lyn,

Thanks. We really liked the tour. The itinerary and timing was perfect for us. The hotels were reasonable, especially the one on the mountain, which had great food in the restaurant.

I think maybe this hike was quite difficult for the guide, since our group likes to hike and we are all physically fit. I think maybe it has been a long time since he climbed the mountain, because of Covid-19 and no foreign tourists. And I think most people probably take the cable car up, but we like to use our own legs. Anyway, he did his best and was nice and helpful.

Regards,

Curtis

One day tour of Xi’an China

Having had a great experience using Chengdu Bamboo International Tours to explore the Yunnan province, we only felt it was right to do so a second time when touring Xi’an.

Our organizer Riley was extremely efficient and accommodating, linking us with Waldner, our tour guide in Xi’an. With an effortless decorum and compelling attitude, he took me to visit the Great Wall and the Muslim quarter on a half day expedition.

Then, one the second day, my husband and I went to see Emperor Qin’s Terracota warriors, the highlight of our trip!  An absolute must-see.

We enjoyed the explanations and funny antidotes Waldner shared along the way. He was timely and communicative, spoke excellent English and had a deep understanding of a history and culture so unique to our own.

We would definitely recommend this service to anyone looking to explore China.
