Everything mentioned by other viewers for Jasmine was true to fact and I was very lucky to have her as my tour guide for Xian. I read about her services in USA but didn’t pre-arrange due to last minute trip to Xian, hotel staff was kind enough to find her for me for next day tour.
Beside she speaks very good English and responsible, I like to add that her is very caring and flexible with her client. I travel with 2 elderly in their 80 and Jasmine always made sure that they are not too tired and we took frequent breaks and we are not rush by a schedule. She is super flexible too with last minute changes. When I found out our hotel doesn’t provide currency exchange service, I ask Jasmine if we could stop by at an ATM and she ask her driver to take us there. Prior to getting to the ATM, she offered us to pay our admission tickets in advance then we could reimburse her afterward. She is also very thoughtful for her client on the value of the money and how is being spent. For lunch, she took us to a local restaurant, she explains to us the local ingredients and what are the common dishes to try and she help us order six items and we only spent about US $20 for 5 people and it was a delicious and filling lunch. She told us, restaurants by the Terra Cotta Museum are for tourist and generally more expensive, she rather asked her driver to take us to a local restaurant which is only a few miles away. Also to mention, her driver is also very courtesy & kind, he always drop off & pick-up at the closest to the site which minimal walking due to our two seniors, sometimes is at doorstop of the facilities.
Jasmine is the best tour guide we had hire so far. My husband & I had travel to China many times and we have Asian background so we know some Chinese History. Jasmine’s knowledge about the Xian is extensive and her heart to serve her customer is exceptional. For the two “E” in her service, I recommend her services to anyone who may travel to Xian or Beijing.
Places we toured in Xian are Terra Cotta Museum, The City Wall and Muslim Quarter. A one day tour with Jasmine at 8:30am pickup at hotel lobby, tour was leisure and informative and no shopping required.
Thank you, Jasmine for the great service. You make Xian, a wonderful & memorable place to visit and re-visit.
