Bryan was extremely helpful and communicated with us before and after our trip. We had the first day with a driver and visited the Terracotta Army, Banpo Village and the Wild Goose Pagoda. The second day we walked and used taxis and did Xi'an itself. Bryan was so knowledgeable and interesting. We felt we got a really good insight into Chinese history and life. He also took us to 2 very good, local restaurants and helped us order. Visiting the Terracotta Army, Ban Po village and the Muslim Quarter were highlights of our China trip. We can't recommend Bryan highly enough. Thanks so much, Bryan.

We spend a couple days in Xi'an this month. We arranged a day tour with Bryan a week prior. He and the driver picked us up at our hotel, answered our questions about the city, culture, and history, and led us on wonderful trips to the terracotta warriors, Big Goose Pagoda, City Wall, and Muslim Quarter. In addition to seeing these places, he told us the stories and history that made them relevant and interesting. We highly recommend using Bryan!

I researched for weeks communicating with guides in Xi’an before settling on hiring Bryan. He was such a great communicator and excellent resource. His price is very fair and we asked for a private tour and driver for the 4 of us. My cousin is slightly handicapped and has a walker and we needed to rent a wheelchair. Bryan was happy to assist in anything we needed ahead of time. Our plane from Shanghai was delayed due to heavy rains so we were a day late and although Bryan was booked the next day, he got one of his associate guides for us and she took us to see the Warriors. She was also excellent and helpful with my handicapped cousin. She took us to a great place for lunch where we had gluten free foods for me and everything was fresh and delicious and very reasonable priced. We really enjoyed our tour and couldn’t imagine going there without an english speaking guide. Make the most of your time in China and hire Bryan and know your well taken care of and the driver and Van he hires is excellent and safe. You want to enjoy your vacation and see as much as you can and understand what you saw, so get Bryan. He’s easy to deal with, extremely professional and helpful and prices are very fair , he was actually cheaper then most guides and you need someone who can communicate with you in a timely manner. We paid in RMB after our tour and everything was fabulous ! Xi’an is beautiful, so spend some time there.. drum tower.. ancient wall, Muslim area at night.. Big goose.. etc.. so much to see and do there. Spend at least 2 full days there and hire Bryan. I wish we could of spent 4 days Xi’an. Next time for sure we will stay there longer. It was better then Beijing ! Easier to get around, less traffic, pollution and super friendly people everywhere ! Enjoy !

From the very first contact Bryan was quick to respond to emails and easy to talk to regarding different options. He quickly got me onto WeChat - the Chinese equivalent to Messenger and this made it so easy to communicate. Even after our tour, his thoughtful follow-up was really appreciated. The day with Bryan felt like you had spent the day with a friend and we had interesting conversations about a large range of topics. Bryan was thoughtful, courteous and had a real love and appreciation of his home city of Xi'an. Bryan is upfront with his pricing - you pay for the driver and himself for a fixed price, then he gives you the costs for the admissions, this way you know exactly what you are paying for, and we felt it was very reasonable. The day at the terracotta warriors was very special and Bryan answered any question and pointed out particularly interesting highlights, as we went around, we never felt rushed. The nearby restaurant where we ate some delicious noodles and dumplings, at a very reasonable price were just perfect for lunch - Bryan understands what his clients are looking for and therefore is the perfect host. Thank you Bryan for a wonderful day, we can see why you have such amazing reviews... you are very special!
