6 days visit to Datong, Wutaishan temples and Taiyuan. Cannot say enough how great the guide Benny was. Excellent English, went way beyond expectations: NO lunch for 5 days! read up on technical terms for Chinese temple roof architecture and construction, answered every question asked, BANGED on doors to request a caretaker OPEN UP a closed temple that was a gem, made impromptu schedule and routing changes to cater to our requests... I could go on but you get the idea: no request not important and not doable!!!
Please note that to get the most out of such a visit that you must communicate as much of your likes and dislikes ahead of time so they can plan for you. Don't expect too many last minute changes as some places busy and hard to arrange without preplanning.
Communicate early and well and you will have a fantastic experience.

Nancy organised a tour for my husband and me, our daughter and son in law, first from Beijing via the Great Wall at Badaling, to Datong, where we visited a very different Great Wall section, a cave village, Yungang Grottos, the city of Datong with museums and the Hanging Temple south of Datong. Our guide was really knowledgable with excellent English. From there we went to another fascinating section of the Great Wall and saw where it meets the Yellow River in Laoniuwan.
We also visited Ordos, Inner Mongolia, great modern architecture a new city that is coming to life and is not a "ghost city* any more. From there we drove to Yan'an and Xi'an, where Nancy again had organised an excellent new guide and driver who also brought us to the grottos of Maijishan, from where we took the train (Nancy had bought the tickets) to Luoyang where Nancy's services ended.
All along she was watching over us and intervening if we had the slightest question or problem ,
We will certainly use Nancy's services again next time we go back to China. She is also a wonderful and war person!

My sister and l planned a trip to Datong and booked Nancy as our guide. She was amazing. We went to so many amazing places and learnt so much about local and Chinese history of the area, Nancy was very organised and nothing was too much trouble for. We had an amazing day probably the best part of our whole trip to China.
If you are planning a trip to China make sure you go to Datong and definitely book Nancy to show you around. Vicki

Nancy arranged our trip to Xi’an, for a tour to the Terracotta Warriors and city wall. She will took good care of us and responded adequate to questions I had on forehand. It feels so good knowing Nancy is involved. I first took a tour to Datong in 2016, and I will certainly book a new tour next year. Thank you Nancy, for your excellent care!
