Great communication from the start and excellent service during our visit, sums up the service provided by Brianbai.
We had seniors and kids under 12 in our group and Bryan accommodated our family's needs very well. He was knowledgeable and provided insights into Xian's evolution from a farming small town into the current city of millions. He helped navigate the Terracotta warrior tourist crowds and had good lunch recommendations. Thanks to Brian, our first stop in China went off very smoothly. I highly recommend his services.

Lisa was extremely informative. She provided regular insight throughout the trip and even had my 10 year old son soaking up her teaching. Solid driving to all sites and patience given at the wall so that my family could grab some bikes and take a ride. Wonderful experience and would recommend the tour to those that want to take in the what Xi’an has to offer.

My family of three visited Xi'an for a day and a half. I contacted Bryan for a full day tour. He arranged a full day tour with Lisa (English name Agnes) who was outstanding! She is a very friendly person, extremely knowledgeable, and gave us a great overview of the Terra Cotta Warriors, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, and general knowledge about Xi'an. We had a nice lunch in the Muslim quarter which we had already visited but Lisa was able to give us some good information about details we would otherwise not have known about. She speaks excellent English and we had good conversation on a wide variety of subjects. She was also able to accommodate some special requests including finding the restaurant where we were meeting some co-workers for dinner that night.

Bryan also gave us advice for biking the city walls during our half-day on our own. While we didn't need it he also offered airport transfer at a very reasonable rate. I would suggest taking this if you don't have alternative means of getting to/from the airport as it's a bit of a ride.

Highly recommend Bryanbai private tour for any visit to Xi'an. We hope to return and visit Huashen!

We only had a day trip to Xi'an from Beijing so we splurged and opted for a good tour guide to ensure we got the most out of it. Bryan was perfect. Highly responsive in corresponding and setting up the tour; highly attentive in ensuring we were met and returned back to the right train smoothly; brilliant in answering our many, many questions on all things China, not just Xi'an based and helpful in working with us to make touring with a toddler relaxed and enjoyable. We're very happy to recommend him.
Our one bit of feedback would be for Bryanbai to ensure he still clearly manages the timings of the day given his local knowledge on how long things take - we'd not have spent quite so long at the warriors asking questions had we known it was making it impossible to fit everything in and we did miss out on seeing the Muslim Quarter as a result.

I contacted Byan after reading the comments on tripadvisor. Bryan was not available during the days I was in Xi'an and he recommended his colleague Agnes. Agnes was our tour guide for a day for the major attractions in Xi'an. She spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable in the history on the attractions we visited. She even accommodated our request to make a stop at at IT mall which is much appreciated. Will recommend Bryan/Agnes for anybody looking for a reliable guide in Xi'an.
