Apple is very friendly, patient and knew exactly what we wanted. She brought us to the restaurant that she strongly recommend, and it is the best restaurant that I’ve visited in China ! We talked a lot and had so much fun together. Now that the trip has ended, I really do miss her. Will plan another trip and definitely will want Apple as my guide again!

I have been on many private tours and the reason for this is privacy and flexibility. This your provides both perfectly. Apple has been so enthusiastic, attentive and passionate. She adapted so well in understanding our needs, blending in as part of the group, more like a friend rather than a guide. She insisted on going against our will for dinner only to find out she brought us to 1 of the best restaurants ever. We told her what we wanted and it was all magically fulfilled. She even told many stories with regard to the history and myths of Hangzhou. Definitely recommend it.

Apple is the best guide I ever had to-date. She’s super amiable, helpful and experienced in every way. Our group blended well with her. She really knows what she’s doing and what’s the best for us all (Tourists). Flexible and great in planning every detail. Will definitely be back here with Sunflower and hopefully to re-experience her splendid service!!!

I had a wondeful trip. Everything was all right. By far Apple is the best guide I have had in years. She is very clever, she knows very well the history of the places we visited and she has many nice stories to tell visotors. In addition she was very helpfull in solving an issue I had with returning money from one railway ticket. I could not resolve it by myself never. So she is so nice, very professional and helpful person. The driver Mr Wang was all right. I will recomend this tour to my friends.
