Jane was a fantastic tour guide! Her English was great and she took us to an amazing restaurant for lunch. Her tour was very informative and help us to take photos at the best places of the Terracotta Warriors. She also helped us to navigate the crowds to get the best views. Afterwards she took us to see the Xi'an City Wall which was so wonderful.

Jane is an excellent guide and we had a great day with her! We visited the Terracotta Warriors, Huaquing Pool and the Old City Wall. Traffic was congested, but Jane did not rushed us and made sure that we enjoyed the tour at a leisurely pace. She was very knowledgeable of the history and shared a lot of info with us. She even helped us to communicate with a local agency regarding our airport transfer detail change. I would highly recommend her if anyone will visit Xi'an!

Saying we had an amazing tour with Jane is an understatement. Jane took it to the next level and we really felt like we were traveling with a local. On top of that she was also extremely knowledgeable regarding Xian and the terracotta warriors. We highly recommend!

Jane is a fabulous tour guide! She is thoughtful and kind, intelligent and knowledgeable, and her English is exceptional. Her private tour is also very flexible, which was wonderful for us, since we had already seen some of the sights on her original itinerary. Jane is very personable and comfortable to be with. We had a truly wonderful day with her and would highly recommend her services.

This tour is a must-do if you are in Xi'an. We were able to see all of the highlights, and we just loved our guide Jane. She picked us up and transported us in a private car, which was very enjoyable. Jane is extremely knowledgeable about all of the sites in Xi'an, the history, etc. Highly recommend this tour!

When you find a guide that has that smile and inner spirit of kindness you know you are going to have a good day. From the first moment we met Yan (Jane), she treated us like family. It was one of the best days we had in China on our 11 day family vacation. I highly recommend Yan as a guide. She made sure she spent time individually with each family member. She made sure we had all the info needed to enjoy our time after the tour ended. Best to you Jane!!! Thank You for your kindness!!!

Jane (Yan Gao) was a great tour guide! She took all of our requests in stride and accommodated whatever we needed. She knew the best ways to go and which line to wait in to make our visits the most time efficient. Her English is great, and she is professional and personable. We highly recommend her. I should note that although it was a longish drive and crazy lines to get up to Huashan, it was one of the most amazing sights in China. The cable car ride is unlike any other in the world, I'm sure.

Yan (Jane) was an excellent guide for us in Xi'an. Jane spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable in Chinese history and why each site was so significant. What differentiated her from other tour guides is that she went above and beyond to accommodate us. Her choice of lunch was great, ensuring that we all can enjoy the food, while meeting all of our dietary concerns (one member of the group was vegan). Definitely recommend her for any visitors.

Our guide, Jane was perfect��and her English pretty good. We were picked up 9am and driven to the Terra Cotta warriors museum for a tour of all 3 pits and an excellent lunch nearby. Afternoon we visited the Buddhist pagoda and beautiful park grounds. Jane suggested we watch the Tang music-dance show; and kindly arranged two tickets and drove us to the theatre. It was an excellent experience! Jane was knowledgable, professional and considerate at all times. And I highly recommend her services in Xi'an.

Our day with Jane was wonderful! We had very little time in Xi'an but feel like we learned so much about the city and the sightseeing highlights. Jane communicated incredibly well leading up to our tour day, and we had so much fun during the tour. Her English is terrific and she has a great sense of humor. The benefit of her driving us (including pick up and drop off), and her knowledge of tickets, where to eat and good souvenir options were all great appreciated. We highly recommend Jane!!

First,if u r taveling between Shanghai and Beijing, highly recommend a visit to Xi'an and the Warriors. Xi'an is a charming city with a rich history,and it is the gateway to the Terracotta Warriors. Jane organized our limited time to maximize the opportunity to visit sites in the city and do justice to the Warriors.Jane's extensive knowledge input as she shepherded through the excavation made such a difference.We also very much enjoyed Jane's company during our time with her and I'm confident you will too

My family was in Xi'an and we engaged Jane for the 2 days we were there. We had a wonderful time with Jane, who strived to make this a very pleasant experience. She paid great deal of attention to detail, was very prompt and spoke very good English. In addition, Jane was very flexible on the schedule, shared a lot of local insights and comprehensively covered everything we wanted to see in Xi'an. I strongly recommend Jane's tour for folks interested in getting a complete China experience.

Jane really adjusted our tour to meet our schedule. We were arriving early in the morning and couldn't check into our hotel. So she picked us up at the train station, stored our luggage in her car, and after the tour was finished, dropped us and our luggage at the hotel. She even helped us negotiate a price for a new piece of luggage from a street vendor. Given we only had 1 single day in our schedule to see Xi'an and the Terracotta Warriors, it really would not have been possible without her.

Jane led a very informative, enlightening tour of the Terracotta Warriors, and sites around Xi'an city! She knows the history and culture of this area and provided a great lesson in the car on the way to the Terracotta Warriors. We even had time for a foodie tour through the markets in the city. I highly recommend connecting with Jane! Thanks for a great day Jane, and going out of your way to accommodate some spur of the moment requests! See you again!!

Our group of 8 very much appreciated Yan's guide. Yan was fluent in English and provided interesting relevant commentary of the terra cotta exhibit while driving there. Once inside the buildings, Yan explained the significance of what we observed. She was also a great help locating someone in our group who was separated. She walked purposely in search; Our missing member was spotted by a wheel chair aide. Yan helped us select menu choices at a restaurant gave insights about other sites to visit.

Yan is a superior guide who designed a personalized program after our discussion of what was important to me. Yan is smart about figuring out the best times to visit different sites to try to avoid the most visited times. Our two lunches were fun and the food was delicious. Knowing very little about the places I was visiting, our conversations were filled with interesting history and facts and I learned so much about a culture I knew very little about.

We spent a lovely day with Yan (aka Jane) and her excellent driver; first visiting the Terracotta Warriors, followed by a fabulous dumplings lunch (and cooking lesson) specially arranged for us with a charming couple in their local home. Jane's English is excellent, invaluable for such as experience) and she is clearly eager and able to satisfy her travelers. We highly recommend her!

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.
