Michael is a wonderful and flexible guide and his food tour of Xi'an was incredible! Xi'an food is very unique, being a product of the mixing of cultures along the Silk Road, and he took our family (including two children) to local eateries we never would have found on our own to sample an array of this food. We loved all of it, especially the Xi'an pork 'hamburger,' the local hand-pulled noodles, the beef soup dumplings with a strong cumin flavor, and fresh pomegranate juice. Highly recommend!

Michael is an excellent guide. He is friendly, kind, and speaks fluent English. He went above and beyond to insure that our food tour in Xian was perfect. He is knowledgeable regarding the local cuisine and takes you to canteens and tiny out of the way restaurants that a traveler would never find on their own. We had so much fun while on our night food tour… from eating the local fare, zooming around in a Tuk Tuk and enjoying the company of Michael. Thank you Michael!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Family, Thank you for your great review! I am happy to know that you enjoyed my food & night tour! It’s my pleasure to be your local foodie guide in Xi’an and to be your company made me feel like I was with my own family! I do hope that you could get the real taste of the city and could get a better understanding of this ancient town! I also do hope that you could come back to Xi’an again, then I will give you a free food tour! Thank you all again and all the best to you and your family! Michael

We had a fabulous evening with Michael! He's fun, he's funny, he's knowledgeable, and he knows the best places to eat good, authentic local food. He took us to places we would never have found on our own and where we were the only tourists around. We highly recommend Michael. We had one of the most entertaining evenings we've had since we arrived in China 10 days ago!!

My family of 5 were the gracious recipients of Michael's evening food tour of Xian. We have used small group food tours in other cities, which were fine, however Michael's tour far exceeded our expectations. It was a more personal and superior experience than what we have had in the past. We went at our own pace, ate what we wanted and had an exceptional evening. Michael is a former restaurant owner in Xian and has developed relationships with the best vendors in the old city. Superb experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, Thank you for such an amazing review! I was pretty happy to be your foods tour guide in Xi’an! All of you were so nice and you are a wonderful family! I do hope that I can see you again in future, then I would like to show you around again! All the best to you and your family! Sincerely yours, Michael

Lingtao/Michael customized his Authentic Xi'an Food Tour for us. He took us to more food tasting places than expected. He included the extra sightseeing that we wanted to do. He spent more time with us than promised. We had a great time, tasted some great food and saw some very cool sights. VERY nice tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Greg, Thank you very much for this rating! I hope you could come back to China again in future, then there will be an upgraded food tour for you! :-) All the best to you and your family! Sincerely yours, Lingtao C.

We took food tours in each city we visited, and this was one of my favorites. Michael is a wonderful guide, speaks perfect English, and had us try some of the best food in China. The places we went were very authentic, and off the beaten path, so we felt like we were able to try actual local cuisine. Michael made the tour very fun and was super flexible when we wanted to try some additional foods. He definitely goes the extra mile! Thank you Michael!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kelli, Thank you so much for this great review! You are so nice! I do hope that you can come back to Xi'an in future, then I would like to show you around again! All the best to you and your family! Sincerely yours, Michael
