Nature and I planned the schedule well in advance by e-mail and everything went according to plan. He was a really excellent companion and very knowledgeable and attentive and flexible. I could not have hoped for a better guide. Putting the client in direct contact with the guide from the outset was a huge plus and I would recommend Tours by Locals and Nature to anyone.
Great services provided by Nature. He is always prompt in replying to message and always provide us with sufficient information for our preparation during the trip. Really miss the local food introduced by Nature :) Especially the 'Shao Bing' as well as all the food at local restaurant near Hong Chun. Our trip is more on the relax side as we have 2 elderly people. Hence, really thanks Nature for being patience and kind. Looking forward for next trip to Huangshan during other season with Nature again.
Nature communicates verbally well in English. Did an excellent job in accomodating 9 of us (one elderly) showing us the beauty of Huangshan from different point of the mountain. The tour is not cheap but worth the breath taking experience !

Nature was the best tour guide we have ever had. He made the potentially arduous 3 days in the mountains an absolute pleasure..thank you ��
While Huangshan itself is a phenomenal place, I have to say that our guide, Nature, really brought the place to life with his detailed descriptions. One can sense his enthusiasm for an area close to his heart and this rubbed off on us. Be prepared for a somewhat strenuous walk, limited only by your own physical ability. The weather was not particularly kind and many views were fogged out but we had a good moments and saw a spectacular sea of clouds.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks indeed for your good review. Hope to see you next time and inwardly like to advertise Huangshan to more travelers who want to explore here. And thanks again and appreciate so much that you and your wife have a nice impression on this region. Cheers!
We did a tour last week with Nature H. While the weather on the peak was poor, very cloudy and low visibility, Nature did his best to show us the interesting pine trees and told us a lot of historical and cultural information. We also visited interesting villages, and for us, one of the highlights was the food. Great food at lunch and dinner. He also did his best to help us when we found that our flight had been delayed, then later cancelled.

Nature is simply the best tour guide we have ever had. We had so many changes to our schedule because of flight cancellations but he accommodated all of them. He is very knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a guide for this area. Could not have been better.

Our tour guide did not live up to several promises he made when we booked our tour. We did not tour a local village as he originally promised, nor could we get to our hotel without a shuttle. During our mountain hiking tour, he paid minimal attention to us. He walked several hundred feet ahead, not speaking and on his phone most of the time. He may as well have not been there. He invited himself to dinner the first night, and tried to deny our own dinner being included in the package price the last night.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize that this tour did not go well. It was not my intention to walk ahead of you, I will be more aware of this in the future and will no longer use my cell phone during a tour. Please accept a 50% refund. Tours By Locals will be in contact about your refund.
We are avid travellers and have hired private tour guides in almost every part of the world. Nature was one of the best guides we have ever had. We had an exceptional four days together touring the Huangshan area. Nature was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his hometown. He is highly educated and is therefore able to deliver information in a detailed and interesting manner. He has a lovely personality and it was apparent that he genuinely cared about making sure we had an incredible time.
