Jane is very helpful, knowledgable and friendly. Every aspect of her tour was professional, organised and also very friendly and fun. I will her ask for her guidance again when I return to Xi'an!

This tour is a must-do if you are in Xi'an. We were able to see all of the highlights, and we just loved our guide Jane. She picked us up and transported us in a private car, which was very enjoyable. Jane is extremely knowledgeable about all of the sites in Xi'an, the history, etc. Highly recommend this tour!

When you find a guide that has that smile and inner spirit of kindness you know you are going to have a good day. From the first moment we met Yan (Jane), she treated us like family. It was one of the best days we had in China on our 11 day family vacation. I highly recommend Yan as a guide. She made sure she spent time individually with each family member. She made sure we had all the info needed to enjoy our time after the tour ended. Best to you Jane!!! Thank You for your kindness!!!

Jane (Yan Gao) was a great tour guide! She took all of our requests in stride and accommodated whatever we needed. She knew the best ways to go and which line to wait in to make our visits the most time efficient. Her English is great, and she is professional and personable. We highly recommend her. I should note that although it was a longish drive and crazy lines to get up to Huashan, it was one of the most amazing sights in China. The cable car ride is unlike any other in the world, I'm sure.

Yan (Jane) was an excellent guide for us in Xi'an. Jane spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable in Chinese history and why each site was so significant. What differentiated her from other tour guides is that she went above and beyond to accommodate us. Her choice of lunch was great, ensuring that we all can enjoy the food, while meeting all of our dietary concerns (one member of the group was vegan). Definitely recommend her for any visitors.

Our guide, Jane was perfect��and her English pretty good. We were picked up 9am and driven to the Terra Cotta warriors museum for a tour of all 3 pits and an excellent lunch nearby. Afternoon we visited the Buddhist pagoda and beautiful park grounds. Jane suggested we watch the Tang music-dance show; and kindly arranged two tickets and drove us to the theatre. It was an excellent experience! Jane was knowledgable, professional and considerate at all times. And I highly recommend her services in Xi'an.
Jack NewellUnited States
Our day with Jane was wonderful! We had very little time in Xi'an but feel like we learned so much about the city and the sightseeing highlights. Jane communicated incredibly well leading up to our tour day, and we had so much fun during the tour. Her English is terrific and she has a great sense of humor. The benefit of her driving us (including pick up and drop off), and her knowledge of tickets, where to eat and good souvenir options were all great appreciated. We highly recommend Jane!!

Jane really adjusted our tour to meet our schedule. We were arriving early in the morning and couldn't check into our hotel. So she picked us up at the train station, stored our luggage in her car, and after the tour was finished, dropped us and our luggage at the hotel. She even helped us negotiate a price for a new piece of luggage from a street vendor. Given we only had 1 single day in our schedule to see Xi'an and the Terracotta Warriors, it really would not have been possible without her.
Charles ViersUnited States
Jane led a very informative, enlightening tour of the Terracotta Warriors, and sites around Xi'an city! She knows the history and culture of this area and provided a great lesson in the car on the way to the Terracotta Warriors. We even had time for a foodie tour through the markets in the city. I highly recommend connecting with Jane! Thanks for a great day Jane, and going out of your way to accommodate some spur of the moment requests! See you again!!
David RuheUnited States
Jan was an excellent guide. Great personality, knowledgeable about the area and the sites and always concerned with our welfare and safety. She is perfectly suited for her role and any one that uses her services will be highly pleased.
Calvin WongUnited States
Our group of 8 very much appreciated Yan's guide. Yan was fluent in English and provided interesting relevant commentary of the terra cotta exhibit while driving there. Once inside the buildings, Yan explained the significance of what we observed. She was also a great help locating someone in our group who was separated. She walked purposely in search; Our missing member was spotted by a wheel chair aide. Yan helped us select menu choices at a restaurant gave insights about other sites to visit.

Glenn de CaussinChatsworth, CA, United States
Jane was great. We enjoyed seeing the Terracotta warriors in Xi'an. We learned a lot about them and why they were there. It was interesting to finally see this wonder and all the history behind the discovery and the warriors themselves.
Philip ShatliffUnited Kingdom
Jane was excellent and extremely flexible. Her knowledge was first class and helped us have a really great time in Xi'an. If you're in Xi'an I would recommmend a tour with Jane without hesitation.

Jane is very knowledgeable in the history of Xian and the dynasty that ruled that part of China. Very pleasant person to be with. Also witnessed some of the local charm of Xian which was very interesting.
Beth AngeloPonte Vedra Beach, FL, United States
We had a fabulous day visiting the Terra-cotta Army. Jane picked us up at our hotel and gave us great background on our car ride. She is very pleasant and flexible on the tour. We had a nice lunch and after, she took us to the Muslim Quarter / Market and Drum and Bell Towers. She is very knowledgeable and I would certainly recommend her to friends traveling in Xi'an.
Marvin CouchUnited States
Our guide, Jane, was superb. Her English was great and her knowledge was impeccable. She went above and beyond in so many ways. My daughter and I both agreed the money spent was well worth it. I couldn't imagine taking the tour to the Terra-cotta Warriors without someone who knows where to park, where to eat, and the most important sights to see. It was time well spent and a new friend was made. When I go back I will be requesting Jane again.
Carlos NovoaUnited States
I just had a last minute opportunity to tour Xian, so I was hooked up with Jane (Yan). I only can express my gratitude toward Jane and her services offered. She guided me very well thru all the activities I wanted to see. Her patient, her attitude and her English are excellent. She was excellent. thanks Jane, hope see you in the future. Un abrazo, Carlos
Murali SampathUnited States
Jane (Yan) is very knowledgable about such a variety of details on the history of Xian, and she really took time to explain many unique aspects that we certainly would have missed otherwise. She introduced us to some of the best food we had in China holiday, and the day visiting Xian was really memorable. Probably the highlight of our China trip. Thank you again Jane for an awesome tour. :)
Judith BrownUnited States

Jane took excellent care of my family and I: on-time arrival, nice car and driver, useful guidance with tickets, flexible, ... Her tour insights and knowledge really helped to make our trip an unforgettable experience. We highly recommend her as a tour guide.
Jennifer EliseUnited States
Outstanding tour! Best private guide because 1)she listens and customizes your tour to what you want to see , 2) she has the actual knowledge about what you are seeing, 3) no sneaky shopping trips! We asked to end with authentic Chinese massage after a hike in Beijing 2 days before... best plan ever! I will use her again.
We visited terracotta army, xian city wall, bell and drum towers. Jane picked us up from train station, took us to see all that time would allow, and returned us to the train at the end. Jane was very knowlegeable and spoke very good english. I would book Jane again if I ever return to Xian
Jan RihaCzech Republic

James M.Hong Kong
Jane is a fantastic guide and I highly recommend her. She is friendly, knowledgable, and her English is excellent. She showed our family of 5 the Terra Cotta Warriors, City Wall and Muslim street. In between, she recommended a great local Chinese restaurant. She made the most of our short time in this amazing city.
Robert TrioSai Ying Pun, Hong Kong
Jane provided a nice car to take us to all the places we wanted. We were especially impressed with the Terra Cotta Warriors Museum tour. She also found a nice place for us to try some local food.

Stephen FreyaldenhovenUnited States
We had an incredible day with Jane in Xi'an. Excellent English and She was very patient with our family (My wife and I, 3 kids ages 17, 15 and 13). We had arrived really late the night before so we got off to a late start. We rode bikes all the way around the city wall, saw the large wild goose pagoda and had a very nice lunch with tea tasting that was a lot of fun, followed by the terracotta warriors (INCREDIBLE) There was a lot of security and traffic so got back really late, but she never rushed us.
Carl LjungquistUnited States
Yan is an excellent tour guide. We were picked up on time and treated like old friends. She was well informed and was able to answer all of our questions. We enjoyed every minute of our time with Yan! We could never had seen so much and learned so much if we'd toured Xi'an on our own. What a pleasure to have her all to ourselves along with a clean car and driver. Now that I am home I will look back upon her like an old friend. Thank you, Yan!
Steven M.Northfield, MN, United States
Yan "Jane" Gao was simply an excellent guide for our one day tour of Xi'an. Her English is superb, which is not surprising as her other job is helping Westerners relocating to Xi'an for business. Other than the Terracotta Army, we weren't sure what to see in Xi'an. She filled in our day quite nicely after picking us up at the downtown train station and listening to our interests. Jane is very knowledgeable on all aspects of ancient and modern Xi'an. I strongly recommend her.
Donald ChuUnited States
Jane was terrific! She allowed us to create an itinerary of what we wanted to see (and even made suggestions) and allowed us to travel at our own pace with tons of photographs taken. Jane's knowledge of all sites, including Xi'an, was excellent, as was her English. She made a difficult day (over 100 degrees F temperature) easy with her friendly personality and knowledge of country's, area's and site's history. We made a great choice.
Lawrence DanoUnited States
Yan is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgable on the Xian attractions and history. Her English is great and it was more like touring with a friend rather than a stranger. The driver was really nice too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Larry!

Jane was a terrific guide for the two of us. Her English is excellent and she is a very nice woman. Though she is pretty soft spoken, she is full of fascinating information and history, so stick close to her and listen carefully. At the Terracotta Warriors she allowed us plenty of time to absorb the amazing site and take pictures. She also took us to a great lunch spot and the other must-see sites of the city. As a native of Xi'an with many years of experience as a guide, I'm very glad we chose her.
