5 stars Andrew P. 12 Nov 2017

Very knowledgable and accomodating! Phoenix made our tour of Xi'an very enjoyable, and provided us with historical context to the sites we visited (Terracotta soldiers, Wild Goose pagoda, Xi'an Wall, Banpo museum). Would certainly recommend to family and friends!

5 stars Philip M. 14 Oct 2017

Phoenix Fan was fantastic! Everything you would want in a tour guide. She was friendly, knowledgable, informative, interesting and very, very nice. And her driver was great too!! I would highly recommend her!

5 stars Tony M. 11 Oct 2017

Great Job Phoenix !! A very pleasant day, well organised and full of interesting information. The best guide we had on our trip to China. Highly Recommended.

5 stars Peter S. 06 Oct 2017

I would recommend Phoenix to anybody. Phoenix showed us around Xi'an for one day and was a delight. Her relaxed but knowledgeable aura was a pleasure to be around. She is totally organised and helpful and has a wealth of knowledge. We felt that we enjoyed the day much more because she was with us. Phoenix also told her historical information in such a way that we actually remember it here, back in Australia.

Phoenix even bought a cake for us - because it was our wedding anniversary.

5 stars Matt W. 31 Aug 2017

We just got back from our trip which included a one-day Xi'an tour with Phoenix, and we have to say that she is fantastic. Our group of five had people ages 3 to 63, and she was perfect for everyone. Phoenix is not just reading a script. She's articulate and highly educated about all things Xi'an. Her passion for Xi'an and showing it to visitors really shows. She made us wish we had spent more time in Xi'an! Her English is excellent. We had a great time and highly recommend Phoenix!

5 stars Corrado G. L. B. 26 Aug 2017

I have spent three fantastic days in Xi'an under the expert guide of Phoenix. She was very attentive in the organization of all the visits. Owing to variable weather conditions, we had to change several times our plans and she was very efficient in the formulation of a new scheduling. Even more important, her pleasantness and smile constantly accompanied the tour. Thank you Phoenix.

5 stars ari F. 22 Aug 2017

Phoenix is a professional! From booking to the final drop off back at the hotel, she was quick to return emails, and laid out an itinerary that was amazing. Her English was on par with my own and depth and breadth of knowledge of history, geography, current events and cultural information is astounding. We are big foodies, and she new exactly where to steer is for some great food too! She uses the same driver for all her tours, he is safe careful and the van is beautiful maintained. 6starservice

5 stars Romit D. 25 Jul 2017

Phoenix was very knowledgeable and spoke fluent English - to a level where it was possible to have far more than basic conversation. We really enjoyed our tour of the Terracotta warriors with her!

5 stars William T. 06 Jul 2017

Im from Missouri, and Phoenix handled this ole hillbilly with no problem!! Id hire this lady again in a minute! She will take care of ALL matters, you need laundry done, ask Phoenix, you need to learn how to take the subway, she will teach you, you want a ride from the airport, she will set it up!! If you are looking for a complete guide, funny, very knowledgeable, and just downright hospitable, you know whats Phoenix!! Thank you for one of the best trips of my life! Mark

5 stars Tami C. 25 Jun 2017

Phoenix was FANTASTIC. Her English is SUPERB (and was such a relief after our last guide, not from Viator). She has excellent taste in food and recommended a great restaurant for our first meal. Her flexibility and good suggestions (for when kids were tired or disinterested) made it easy to have a good time. She always found food we liked, interesting markets to visit (paper and art), and helped us navigate the train station. Phoenix was our top guide for our tour to China! Highly recommended!!

5 stars Christopher M. 08 Jun 2017

This was a terrific tour. I was only in Xi'an for one day, and she made it possible to see everything that I was interested in. She is very friendly, and I learned a great deal about the history. Her recommendations for food were great, perhaps some of the best I had in China. Furthermore, her English is terrific. I highly recommend hiring Phoenix for a tour in Xi'an.

5 stars ian M. 22 May 2017

We would strongly recommend using Phoenix as a tour guide to anyone touring Xi an. She has excellent knowledge of all sites and was happy to change our itinerary when asked.Phoenix was very thoughtful and had even chosen a driver for his safe driving style. It was a very enjoyable experience.

5 stars Diana B. 13 May 2017

We can't say enough about how wonderful Phoenix is as a tour guide for Xi'an! Very knowledgable, fun, flexible, understanding and sweet. We had some issues with rain but it didn't stop us, we kept moving and rearranged our days and it worked out great. She was so understanding as I had a hard time making a decision on purchasing/shipping a warrior home... what patience! She also took us hiking on Mt. Huashan, its a 2 hr drive but soooo worth it! Lots of stairs but fantastic views!

5 stars Jason S. 29 Apr 2017

Our tour with Phoenix was AMAZING! She planned out a very flexible tour and was extremely accommodating to our individual needs. The driver and his vehicle was very comfortable and we were thankful for the AC. Her choice for a lunch stop was superb! When we wanted a bit of extra time to explore or take pictures she did not rush us to get to the next point. I would highly recommend Phoenix for your tour guide needs in Xi'an. You will not be disappointed!

5 stars Hugh M. 20 Apr 2017

Phoenix is a superb guide. We spent a great day visiting Xian with her. She is very knowledgeable and did a great job looking after us throughout the day

5 stars Alex C. 16 Apr 2017

Phoenix was simply fantastic from beginning to end! She was very timely on her email responses when we were getting acquainted; all the way to picking us up at the airport after a delayed flight thru our 3-day tour of Xian and its wonderful sights! We had a 2 1/2 year old with us and Phoenix felt like part of the family as we toured Xian. Will definitely and highly recommend her to anyone seeking to have a reliable, dependable and honest private tour guide! - Alex C.

5 stars Steve N. 13 Mar 2017

Phoenix is a superb guide. Very personable, professional and knowledgeable. Speaks excellent English. Met or exceeded every expectation my wife and I had. Provided door to door service, a thorough itinerary and moved at the pace we wanted. Couldn't be more pleased with Phoenix and highly recommend her. She is a credit to her city and her profession.

5 stars Roger C. 07 Mar 2017

Phoenix is a great guide who is very knowledgeable on the history of the Terracotta Warriors and Xi'an. She was very helpful and treated us like family. She took care of every thing from picking us up at the airport, taking us to a great local restaurant, and even insuring we got onto our return flight without any problems. Most important Phoenix is a very lovely person to be with. You can't go wrong with Phoenix.

5 stars stephen M. 01 Feb 2017

Phoenix is outstanding! Professional, flexible, knowledgeable and a great sense of humor. She quickly understood our personalities and interests, and brilliantly guided us through the day, allowing us a very personalized visit to Xi'an. She is thinking all the time about how to maximize the experience for you

Phoenix really adds value to your tour of Xi'an, and you would be made not to hire her!

5 stars JOSEPH K. 24 Dec 2016

Phoenix was a delight for our one day tour with driver of the Terracotta Army site and the Banpo Neolithic site. Phoenix was very knowledgeable and pleasant, adding much to our enjoyment of the two sites. She personally escorted us to the Tang Dynasty dinner show and then back to our hotel. We highly recommend her.

5 stars Evelyn W. 20 Dec 2016

Phoenix was incredible! She was diligent and resourceful from the start - tracking us down despite our canceled flight from Beijing and subsequent booking on a different airline much to my relief! Our family (3 kids in their early 20's) enjoyed all the sights in Xian with Phoenix. She was a wealth of knowledge with the Terracotta Soldiers, The Great Mosque and the Muslim Quarter. She had some awesome recommendations for authentic regional foods which really enhanced our trip! She was great!

5 stars Mark B. 22 Nov 2016

Phoenix is awesome!! We had a great time with her. It was like going around with a good friend, not a tour guide. She was extremely accommodating. Communication with her before we got there was wonderful. We gave her a list of things we wanted to know but in the end we made some changes and it didn't bother her at all. The driver she used was terrific. It was a snowy day and he was an incredibly safe driver. I want her to be our guide everywhere in China. Don't hesitate to hire her.

5 stars Joanne V. D. V. 12 Nov 2016

Phoenix was excellent, from the time we confirmed the tour, she was in contact confirming we had transport to our hotels and even giving us the hotel name in Chinese to assist when organizing a taxi. Her english and knowledge was exceptional and she was extremely helpful when putting the tour together in order to facilitate and maximize the time we had in Xian.

I highly recommend Phoenix as it is money well spent when learning about all the history in Xian.

5 stars Russell D. 10 Nov 2016

Fan was truly a great tour guide. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge in regards to the overall Xi'an adventure. She is extremely accommodating and ensured we were promptly picked up and returned to the airport in a timely manner.

5 stars Rita B. 18 Oct 2016

My family had a great tour with Phoenix the other day. Her English is excellent as is her knowledge of the sites we visited. She was flexible and accommodating to our group of 6. We would certainly have Phoenix guide us again if we revisit Xian in the future.

Thank you Phoenix.

Rita B.

5 stars Jazeline B. 16 Oct 2016

Phoenix is an excellent guide. We went to the Terracotta army, Big Goose Pagoda and Muslim Street. The next day we were on Mt Huashan.

Her English is very fluent and she is so friendly and accommodating.

I don't normally do reviews but I won't hesitate to book her again.

5 stars Graeme R. 05 Sep 2016

I arranged a trip to the Terracotta Warriors and Banpo with Phoenix. She was an excellent guide - friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the things she was talking about. I learned a lot of Chinese history! She also spoke flawless English and was easy to chat with as we toured. It is very clear that she enjoys what she does! I will certainly arrange time with Phoenix again when I return to Xi'an and wish there was a guide as good as is everywhere I travel to!

5 stars Livia L. 10 Aug 2016

I travel a lot and have enough experience to tell that the service Phoenix provides is outstanding. After the first emails, her professional attitude was clear. I am quite demanding traveller, but she was always a step ahead. Her knowledge of English and history is excellent. She helped even with booking the train tickets, shows, entering to the museum without a queue, and with solving some shopping hassle. And always very friendly! I can warmly recommend her as your guide! Thanks a lot Phoenix!

5 stars Cheryl B. 07 Jul 2016

Phoenix was a perfect tour guide. Couldn't have been better! She was so knowledgable, energetic, interesting, and fun; and she was a good soul. She made Xi'an and the Terracotta Warriors and Horses come to life. It was special to experience these wonders through her eyes. She made sure that we saw all the highlights, and took very good care of us. We felt very fortunate to have found Phoenix through Viator. We were sad to say goodbye and know we will keep in touch with our new friend in China!

5 stars Judith R. 26 Jun 2016

Phoenix was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable and made our very long day interesting. We would highly recommend her. We would definitely use her services again. We give her 5 stars.

5 stars faith M. 23 Jun 2016

She showed up on the date we arranged to meet with a driver in a minivan She took care of all the details for the day, including purchasing tickets, which I just had to pay her at the end of the day. Her experience is invaluable and we could not have done it without her. Her command of English is alsoexcellent.

I also have to commend her driver as he was always very safe, not speeding, and without tailgating and zigzagging through traffic, which is what all taxi drivers seem to do in China.

5 stars Mita C. 13 Jun 2016

Knowledgeable, professional and very considerate. communicates well in english

We went on a two days tour with Phoenix. We visited Big Wild Goose Pagoda, City Wall, Muslim Quarter, Bell/Drum Tower Square, Great Mosque, Banpo Neolithic Ruins, Huaqing Hot Springs, Terracotta Warriors, and Tang Dynasty Music & Dance Dumpling Dinner Show. We did all that but in an unrushed and highly informative way. Phoenix was FANTASTIC! Her English and knowledge of history was excellent. She loves her job and it shows! We loved every minute of this tour. We will definitely recommend her

5 stars Jillian F. 03 Jun 2016

Phoenix speaks exceptionally good English. She is knowledgeable on the history and tourists sites of the Xian area. On a two day tour we were shown the Han Yangling museum, the Terracotta warriors (amazing) , the Muslim Quarter and did a cycle rid on the city walls of Xian (worth doing and easy for even inexperienced cyclists). Pheonix knew where to go, the best places to see the sites, where to eat and drink and how to avoid the queues. We would highly recommend her services to any visitor.

Phoenix is a very reliable guide, prompt and accurate in her communications during the booking clear and entertaining during the tour.

I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to be guided in China. Her knowledge of history goes beyond the text books & puts a human element into the factual narrative. A very enjoyable day, especially the "Chinese Burger" at lunch and the single wide & long unpronounceable (56 character stroke) Noodle for dinner. I definite must on the day.


5 stars David B. 06 Dec 2015

Phoenix is very well versed in english & has great knowledge of the attractions. She is very punctual & courteous. I wish her all success in life.

5 stars Jamieson C. 10 Oct 2015

Phoenix met us on time at Xi'an airport. The information she provided included the history of China in that part of the country and brought us up to current day. That education took quite a bit of discussion and was very interesting. The amount of detail she has acquired over the years about Terracotta soldiers is quite amazing. We highly recommend Phoenix for her English speaking ability as well as her knowledge of the area.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Jamieson. It was pleasant and fun to be with you guys.

We have just returned from our 3-day trip to Xian. We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids aged 3,4,5,6. Phoenix prepared an itinerary that was fun for both adults and the kids.

Phoenix speaks very good English and has a profound knowledge about all the sights and history. She has been VERY helpful, even helped us with the kids and made sure everything was solved smoothly and quickly (she even managed that a restaurant opened 30 mins earlier because of us).

I highly reccommend her.

Phoenix is my guide for my 1 day trip to HuaShan. She is really knowledgeable, her English is very good, and she's really helpful. She even took me to the train station for my train to Beijing though she really didn't have to. I would definitely recommend her to anyone visiting Xian. Thanks Phoenix!

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Phoenix. She spoke excellent English and was really knowledgable about the history, giving specific explanations to each place we visited. The car she arranged for us was clean and comfortable, and the driver was polite and always drove cautiously. We will definitely recommend Phoenix to anybody who wants to visit Xian.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks Sarri. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay here in Xian.and it was my pleasure to have shown you around.

I like the tour with Phoenix because she was resourceful. The tour was comfortable and the driver is safe (with additional points for a clean car). However, it could be improved with more information and background on the places we visited or the places we passed by. Overall, I would recommend signing up with Phoenix as your tour guide in Xi'An.

Phoenix was very pleasant and her English is very good. We were pleased with her as a tour guide. The only problem we had was that she was almost an hour late picking us up at the airport. We had cell service in China but for travelers without internet connection it would have been a major issue not knowing. We did everything we wanted to do, but were a bit rushed at the end because of the hour we lost.

Tour Guide Comment: Sorry again for the inconvenience. We were stuck in the traffic for more than one hour because of the rain and the unpredictable car accident. Hope you still enjoyed the visit to Terracotta Warriors, City Wall as well as the Chinese burger.
