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.

Andy was an outstanding tour guide! My 3 friends and I used him for one day to tour Yangshuo by scooters and it was the most amazing day. He knows all the best places to go and had a smile on his face all day! If you're in Yangshuo and don't use Andy, you're doing it wrong!

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.

This tour was exceptional and Andy was a fantastic guide. He is courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and reliable. I was extremely impressed with him and the tour was wonderful. This tour is a really unique experience and Andy can customise it to fit your needs. He is an excellent communicator and will make your trip very comfortable. His English is excellent and while some folks may not care, I really appreciated the fact that he did not smoke (rare for China). His car was comfortable and clean. A++!

We highly recommend this tour and Andy is terrific as a guide! The area is stunning and Andy knows it well. Highlights of the trip for us were a morning bike ride through the countryside and a steep climb up a mountain for a spectacular view over the river and mountains all around. Andy's English is excellent and we enjoyed our time with him. The tour and Andy get top ratings from us!

Andy is a great guide and a very nice person; under extremely adverse weather, poring rain for more than 24 hours in a row, he made our tour enjoyable, interesting and well documented. He found the way to go over the circumstances and always with respect, dedication and a smile on his face. I highly recommend this guide.

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!

Andy is a great guide that we would recommend to anyone. He is friendly, helpful, flexible, open to plan changes, fluent in English, and always knows the best route to the sight-seeing locations. He manage to help us avoid all the big tour groups so that we can enjoy the sights without being overly crowded. We hope he will further improve the tour experience by telling more Chinese stories/poems that are related to the sights/areas that we were in.

Andy was very friendly and went out of his way to show us places and lead us on adventures we would never have had with a large group (or found on our own.) He also had a nice car and was an excellent driver. And, believe me, you really want a good driver in China! He was always willing to deviate from the defined tour if we wanted to add a different site - and when we were limited on time, he would gently suggest what we might want to skip. Great experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rosie Thanks for your comments and thanks for your time! Best regards Andy

We had a wonderful time in Guilin with Andy! He was full of information, spoke excellent English, and was fantastic with our two kids. When booking our trip we saw that the tour we wanted to book for our last day in Guilin was all booked up. Andy said not to worry and that we'd take care of it when we got to Guilin. I was worried, but he booked a wonderful day tour of Guilin's sights with a wonderful guide! Thank you Andy!

Andy customized the tour to meet my needs and handled everything including airport transfers. Even though the weather was not perfect, I enjoyed the private boat tour on the river and the bicycling afterwards. I had very limited time and Andy made that time well worth the flight from Shanghai. If you are going to Guilin then you need to book a tour with Andy!

My two adult sons and I spent two days with Andy: one in Guilin and one bicycling the countryside around Yangshuo. Andy was cheerful, punctual, reliable and accommodating. His English is excellent. His knowledge of the little paths outside Yangshuo allowed us to see villages that we never would have been able to see on our own. He tailored our tours to our specific requests and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

We booked the private tour and we had a seperate air conditioned room for our group on the boat but most of the time we stayed at the top of the boat to enjoy the beautiful nature creations. Afterwards we did a bycicle tour. Which showed us the beautiful insides of the area like Lotus and rice fields & other views on the Liriver. It was no problem for Andy to stop every 2 minutes to enable us to take pictures. He even enjoyed it to play our cameraman so we had group photo's. It are well organized tours.

Andy was a great and VERY patient guide, from the moment he met us at the airport until he dropped us off - he was the driver, guide and just all around go-to guide. My family and I really appreciated his friendly demeanor and expertise. We very much enjoyed all aspects of the tour, but having Andy as a personal guide was really the icing on the cake - you can ask that the guide be organized, which Andy very much was, but you can't expect the guide to be as kind and patient as Andy was. Thank you so much

Andy provided just what he said he would: airport pickup, 3 nights hotel accommodations, breakfasts,and tours with a driver. Our favorite activities were the bamboo rafting in the early morning, cormorant fishing demonstration, Fuli old town, evening light show in Yangshuo and walking in the rice terraces. The afternoon rafting on the Li River is too crowded and we could have skipped the Pearl "Museum" which is just a shopping stop. Even in the rain we enjoyed the Elephant Trunk Hill and Reed Flute Cave.

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!

My Husband and adult daughter and I had 3 days in Guilin with Andy as our guide. He was fantastic. Enthusiastic, cheerful and very entertaining. His English is very good and nothing was too much trouble. The scenery around Guilin is simply mind altering. We took the Li River cruise and a day trip to visit the Rice terraces both of which were awesome. Guilin was the scenic highlight of our trip to China and should not be missed.

Our trip on the LiRiver was amazing, Andy was "the Master", Cheerful, Funny and Enthusiastic. He obviously genuinely likes people and loves his work. His command of English is brilliant. He has a great sense of humour and made the day a hassle free experience. He even managed to encourage me on to a bicycle for the first time in 30 years, for a wonderful cycle tour through the village. Any one visiting China, must see Guilin and book Andy for a great experience.

Andy was incredibly helpful, from planning what tours to take before we booked, to all the details of the great day we spent on the tour. Trust me, this help is priceless, there are so many Li River cruise options available of widely varied quality. The spectacular scenery of the Li River has to been seen to be appreciated; this is a must-see during a trip to China; and the bike tour takes you through more wonderful scenery. We spent the next day with Andy on the Longji tour, be sure to check it out.

Andy was a great guide! Our Li River cruise was THE highlight of our entire time in China. We visited Beijing, Shanghai and Guilin and this was by far the best part of our trip. Andy was very knowledgeable about the area and very personable. He even took the time to take pictures and e-mail them to us. We would definitely recommend the Li River Cruise and Andy!
