Ted made our trip a once in a lifetime experience. His local knowledge was paramount to the success of our trip. His english is excellent, patience, humour & wit unbeatable! Ted navigated us through 10 days in Guizhou without incident. His recommendations were bang on with hotels, food & more. Ted is a first class guide & you won't be disappointed.

We had our 4-dyas Guizhou trip (May-2016), with Ted, east of Guiyang. We traveled mainly the Miao and Dong Villages all the way to Zaoxing. Ted was a truly excellent guide: Very responsible, dedicated to his job, honest and very knowledgeable. He himself was very curious, yet knows many of the minorities cultures and beliefs. He knows the roads, those of the beaten track, too, and will make the right decisions of the restaurants on the way, including those authentic one along the roads. He is devot

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Tamir.

Ted was a fabulous guide. I appreciated that his fee was very straightforward - $100 per day for him, and then necessary transportation/food/housing options where we have some control and input. He planned for my wife and me a hike to an extremely isolated Miao village of fewer than 1000 people. We stayed overnight with a family who lives extremely simply. On the following day, we hiked to a more commercial Dong village. Ted has a great knowledge of the region. Recommend extremely highly.

Ted did a very good job and took care of me during the trip. I traveled alone with him and he knew the places well. I experienced the real Miao people daily life and traveled like a local person. I had a wonderful time. Thank you Ted!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure.

Ted was a great guide - very knowledgeable about Guizhou and professional, and he anticipated our travel needs and interests. When we had to change our itinerary due to a last minute flight cancellation, Ted rolled with it, and quickly modified our schedule.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks and welcome to come visit Guizhou again.

Ted is a really caring person who did way more than what was expected from a guide. He also is very knowledgable and fast to adapt. He helped me a lot for my photo project. However, despite his english being perfect, he has troubles translating in a nice smooth way, that create dialogue with the locals. It ended up with me listening to them talking for hours without having any idea what was going on. Even now, I feel I didn't learn so much about the local culture. I still recommend him for classic tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Julian wanted specific Miao villagers to put on festival costumes and pose like professional models to have their photos taken. To figure out who could be a good model and whether he/she was willing to do it, I had to greet and talk in a friendly way before asking them to help. I didn't realize Julian wanted to understand all our conversations details and participate until he told me.With better understanding of his demand, the rest of the adventurous trip turned out to be much smoother.
