Andy was a great tour guide; helpful and friendly. He helped us buy pomelos from the side of the road, took us on a hike after viewing the Longji terraces, and recommended restaurants after our day ended (even sending pictures of the restaurants so they'd be easy to find). We hired his cousin a day later for drive us from Yangshuo to the Guilin airport in a comfortable van for a price lower than quoted by our hotel. Two minutes after the pickup time Andy texted to make sure everything went smoothly.
Open person, active and smiling. Supporting in our extra requests and for sure he contributed to make China experience unforgettable. I suggest to take the rice field tour and the bike and bamboo boat tour in Yanshuo: unique experience.
Andy is very kind and supportive, knows the area very well and take spots apart from the crowds and masses during chinese holiday. Even arranged the evening cruise for us!! Can absolutely recommend. Would have been top notch if he also explains a bit more about the history of the rice terrace.
Our guide, Andy, was very polite and flexible. He agreed to pick us up from our hotel, in Yangshuo and after the tour, he droped us in Guilin train station, which was very convenient. He answered all our questions, he was patient discreet and cheerful and he took us the best family photo of our trip ! We highly recommend both the tour and the guide!
Andy is a great guide. He knows very well about the history of the places he went with us. He is very nice, very discreet but also very cheerful. His English is excellent and he can even speak some French! He has been very helpful and he even took us to the train station so that we could catch our train. The whole family highly recommends Andy, who is a nice person and an amazing guide.

Had a nice tour along the rice fields with Andy. His English is excellent and he gave us a lot of information along the walk, which was nice.
We went to longji rice terrace with Andy and he was an amazing guide. We never felt rushed throughout the trip and he was very informative. His English was very good. I would definitively recommend anyone looking to go to the rice terrace to book with Andy. I rate our experience with Andy a five star. Thanks for a wonderful time Andy!!
We enjoyed a lot our tour with Andy, he is a very good guide. He took enough time to explained us the history and interesting fact of all the places we were. Great experience for me, my husband and my two children (5-9 yo). The views are beautiful and the people is very nice there. Very recommended.
In German: Die Tour mit Andy ist absolut empfehlenswert! Er holt einen beim Hotel ab, fährt einen nach Longhsheng und macht genau die Tour dort, die man haben möchte, ob touri-mäßig oder sehr individuell. Er sorgt auch für gute Pausen. Sein Englisch ist sehr gut, er ist zuverlässig und hat wirklich ein wohltuend sauberes Fahrzeug. Wichtig ist auch, dass er vernünftig fährt, denn die Dahrt nach Longsheng zu den Stosszeiten ist echt gefährlich, wenn man einen typisch chinesischen Fahrer hat.

Will highly recommend Andy to friends who are coming to Guilin. We were able to have a pick up time that suited our itinerary and had a great day out at Longji rice terraces. We weren't rushed at all and had time for my elderly mother to wander around at here own pace. A perfect tour with absolutely no complaints. Andy speaks great English and has a good sense of humour. Thanks Andy - my parents thought you were wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you.
Andy showed us an non tourist road in the Longji rice fields. It gave us an incredible, breathtaking and beautiful impression. An absolute must have seen when you are in the Guilin region.
We had two fabulous days with Andy as our tour guide. He was nice, friendly and competent. Though everything was very well prepared and thoroughly organized he was quick to customize the tour to our additional wishes! Thank you so much for that Andy! This concept suits us very well and we had an excellent first impression of "ToursByLocals". Lotta & Christian
After a 'not-so-great' experience yesterday afternoon with a group tour, being with Andy on our private tour was not only a breath of fresh air but a real eye-opener. His knowledge of the area exceptional - he is more than happy to answer your questions. He is patient and will allow you to stop wherever you like to take as many photos as you like. He is full of energy and has a great sense of humor. Most importantly he is passionate about nature and his job. What you see is what you get --no sales pitch!

Andy made our trip to the Rice Terraces an awesome experience. He speaks exerlent English and had a very good knowledge of the area. He is very funny and energetic with a great sence of humour. He obviously loves his work and genuinely appreciates the spectacular natural beauty of his homeland. We felt priveladed to have him with us and would not hesitate to recommend him. We parted feeling we had made a genuine friend in China.
