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.

Yan was an amazing guide for our short side trip to Xi'an! Provided great color commentary & interesting facts which resonated with adults as well as our 13-year old son. Spoke perfect English; was engaging in her descriptions. Yan made it logistically easy from pick up to drop off the day of the tour, & she also even offered to wait for us at the end of our tour to drive us to the evening event she helped us reserve. Also helped arrange transfer next day to the airport. Would highly recommend her!

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.

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.

Thanks to Jane, my 3 friends and I, had a great holiday. She was informative, pleasant and went out of her way to accommodate our requests. She made a last minute change to our initial itinerary due to the weather forecast for the following day, and it was a great decision as we could not have walked the City Wall in the rain. She also gave us some good restaurant recommendations for local cusine. She is definitly getting repeat business from me and my friends, and we are happy to recommend her.

Jane is an excellent tour guide and I recommend her without any reservations! She loves her native Xian, and her passion for her home town shows! She was very gracious and knows her local history. While we were at the Terracotta Soldiers, she pointed out beautiful nuances through out the exhibits. Our group of 4 got so much more out of our trip due to her being our guide. She brought Xian alive through her descriptions of the places we visited. I wish we had more time with her to explore even more!

We had a lovely time in Xi'an, thanks to Jane! She was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English - we really enjoyed listening to the history of the Terracotta Warriors and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Jane worked through our long wishlist of sights in our rather short time in Xi'an, without ever feeling rushed, and was never pushy. She was kind enough to offer to buy us delicious persimmon cakes on Muslim Street! With Jane, we really felt like we were in Xi'an with a close friend, thank you Jane!

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. :)

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.

Jane was excellent in our preparations for our trip and developed a fantastic one day tour in and around Xi'an. Unfortunately, she hurt herself the day before we arrived and was unable to be our guide. However, I was VERY impressed with her professional and how she arranged a stand-in guide who was able to meet all of our needs. I found this to be highly professional and a strong indication of how our tour would have been handled. She is highly recommended.

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.

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.

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.

We were very pleased with the tour, our guide Jane was waiting for us in the hotel lobby a few minutes early, her English was excellent and we had no communication issues. She allowed us to go at our own pace and supplemented the Terracotta Warriors and other sites very well but also allowed us space to enjoy ourselves. She adapted to our interests, and found some cave dwellings that we wanted to see, including jumping out of the van to ask village residents for directions.

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.
