Shandy was brilliant! Extremely helpful before our trip, e.g. advising which activities were worth doing and which were just 'tourist-traps'. She also suggested local places to go which we would not have found by ourselves. Once we arrived she was a great guide, met us promptly at the station etc. She arranged tours and transport and advised where to eat, but was also happy to flex the itinerary when we asked to change it, for example when we got hungry and wanted lunch earlier than planned!

During our tour torrential rain flooded Yangshuo causing impassable roads. Shandy insisted that we stay at her apartment when we couldn't return to our hotel. She and her husband were so gracious in offering us whatever we needed. This was incredibly generous of them, particularly since they had lost electricity. Shandy went above and beyond in helping us make the best of unexpected events. We are very appreciative to her for all she did to take care of us during our adventurous time there.

First let me mention that we meet Shandy briefly as even though I hired her services she did not accompany us. So please be alert that you have no guarantees that selecting this guide that you will be with her. I do have to mention that she sent Jerry Z who was great with us. His knowledge of Guilin was extensive and he's a true professional. He made the visit to Guilin excellent and I would recommend him over any other guide in this city. After our trip to China for a month I have to say that he was one of the best with fluent English.

We were very happy to have Shandy as our guide in the Guilin area. She was bright and bubbly and fun to tour with. Her attention to detail was good and she was always checking that we had everything we needed. Shandy knew the area well and was excited to share the sites with us. We would not hesitate to recommend her.

Our tour with Shandy was absolutely great! She planed and organised the whole tour and always crosschecked with us before we left. She picked us up from the airport, booked the drivers, were always on time and always a sunshine! I felt really sorry when our vacation was over and she brought us back to the airport. We will miss her and will keep in contact -hope to meet soon again and see a lot of other great spots in her home area

Gerry was a very helpful, thoughtful, very understanding and speaks well English. He helped us all the way and we would recommend him again.

Shandy was very easy to contact and gave very good advice regarding our whole trip in Guilin. They made this trip a very memorable trip and would recommend them again. thanks for a wonderful trip. The Ah Yui family

Shandy and Michael (Shandy's husband) were superb in all matters. They arranged a perfect trip, including variations due to changes on my trip dates & my duration stay & the number of persons with me.

They took care of everything, private transportation, when necessary, or public transport, when we could, to save money.

Michael was perfect as a guide, explaining a lot of things in each site, recommending different routes, restaurants...

If you go to YanghsuoArea don't hesitate in booking th

Absolutely amazing experience with Shandy all 3 days. I did not want to leave !!! We had 7 people in our group +Shandy and her driver. both of them were fantastic. She gave her all and made all of our dreams come true. I definitely will go back and bring more friends and hire Shandy again & her driver. Beautiful experience. She has a wonderful personality!

In the course of our 4 day tour, We had a very positive and fun tour experience with Michael. He was very knowledgeable in explaining the sites we visited and was a pleasant travel companion as well. The restaurants he picked out were great. Shandy and Michael took care of organizing the private driver & vehicle and was very organized through the day. Michael was very helpful, he went out of the way to help us beyond her job as a guide. I highly recommend Shandy & Michael. Fabulous tour guides!

Shandy was absolutely perfect as a guide. We spoke through email and she respected everything we agreed to. She was fun, well prepared, on time and she did even more than requested. she helped us with buying train tickets and involved also her Brother to keep our luggages a couple of hours in yangshuo for free. thank to shandy, we were able to do a lot spending only 2 days in the Guilin area. very good price for the service! i absolutely recommend her! P.S. my Brother Massimo says hi :-) Monica

We contacted Shandy a few months before our trip, and she was very helpful in organizing our plans.

The trip itself was very well organized, and Shandy's husband - Michael - who was with us the whole time (as he speaks Hebrew, like we do) was knowledgable, well prepared and was able to help us prepare alternatives for the one day we feared rain would make us change our plans (in the end, it wasn't necessary)

We highly recommend Shandy and Michael and hope to be able to use their services again

5 stars Karl B. 01 Sep 2015

Shandy is a fantastic guide. She was very prompt and helpful during our initial email conversation and helped us put together a great itinerary for our three day stay in Yangshuo. I felt like we got to see and experience so much as we hiked, biked, rafted, and drove around the entire region. During your stay in the Guilin/Yangshuo, you can count on Shandy to be prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. You simply can't go wrong with Shandy.

5 stars Dima K. 27 Aug 2015

We liked Yangshuo very much despite rainy weather. Shandy and her husband gave us warm welcome and great tour. She was very flexible and helped us with lots of other things. Thank you Shandy!

5 stars Joanna K. 22 May 2015

Shandy is an excellent guide. I spent two days with her in Guilin and Yangshuo. She took my group of 3 to the Dragon Backbone Rice Terraces, Moon Hill, Xianggong Hill, Silver Cave, Stone Village, and Xingping. Her English is great, she is friendly and thoughtful. She arranged for a car and driver with whom we felt very safe, despite the stormy weather. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time.

5 stars Louise L. 02 May 2015

We have spent nice time with her husband as a guide (from Russia) which shows us his perspective for a life in China. Very good time together :)

5 stars Rainer P. 15 Mar 2015

Highly recommended to contact Shandy if you plan any tour around Guilin area. She really understood what we were going for (not just being a tourist). She, her husband and son joint us for our trip. Every was well prepared and all the mess (caused by us being late etc.) was easily sort out. Moreover - she knows some many people and all the secrets from this area. So once again: highly recommended :)

5 stars anat Z. 16 Oct 2014

upon returning home it is my pleasure to thank shandy and mishka for the guilin- yangshuo wonderful experience!

mishka was coordinating the tour due to his hebrew skills, but shandy was there all the time- managing everything with a great attitude, warmth, and proffessionalism.

thanks for everything!

5 stars Marcia L. 31 Aug 2014

We really enjoyed our visit Guilin / Yangshuo. Shady was enthusiastic and willing to help make our visit a special experience. She went all day long / and night -- more hours than expected to keep up "touring". She worked with a driver Jerry who was the Guilin specialist. His English was very good. Shandy's verbal was more limited but she kept at it. She also suggested we stay in Yangshuo at least one night which saved us a lot of travel time for the sights we wanted to see. A great visit

5 stars Ronnie H. 18 Jul 2014

Shandy was great, i felt that i became part of her lovely family, Shandy knows her home very well, she has a very pleasant nature, I will meet Shandy again.

We visited the Guilin area in mid-November and wanted private tour. We found several guides, but Shandy’s suggested itinerary was exactly what we wanted and her quote was very reasonable. She made all arrangements for transportation and accommodation for an amazing four day tour, showing us places that tourists would not know about. Shandy grew up in the area, so has an intimate knowledge of life and its people. Her English is excellent and she is a terrific travelling companion and teacher.

5 stars Marta V. H. 29 Sep 2013

Shandy arranged a very good tour for us. She is very reliable and friendly and I would certainly recommend using her.

5 stars Oktay O. 23 May 2012

Shandy has all virtues a guide should have. She is reliable and professional. She is local, she has a lot of local knowledge, she literally knows everyone around and can make last minute arrangements/changes very easily. She is very good natured and flexible.

If you are planning to visit Guilin/Yanshuo/Huang Yao/Rice terraces/tea mountain area or anywhere else nearby, this is the guide you will need.
