We wanted a tour that provided amazing views and insight into the culture, foods and hidden gems of Anhui and Nature was the perfect guide to deliver all if this! He has an engaging style, seems more western than Chinese at times and is a charming, proud host of his region. Highly recommended for travellers that want a unique experience. Be courageous and follow his trip advice to get off the beaten track. It's what we enjoyed most about our 4 days together. Thanks again. Suzy and Damien from Australia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Gentle Suzy and Golden Damien, Now the whole China is at the war of novel corona virus. We are confident it will be gone soon in the following one month with our determination and restricted regulations. Wish both of you a wonderful and meaningful year of Mouse. We are destined to meet again. Best regards,
Majestic Huangshan with an excellent guide, Nature. We had a 6 day tour with Nature, including 2 days hiking Huangshan. He tailored the climb to our abilities and was very patient with us. He showed us the best places to take photos and the best view points. We did not get to see the Sea of Clouds as Huangshan is experiencing a drought. We toured the UNESCO heritage site Hongcun. Had a very enriching cultural and informative tour. Highly recommend Nature as a guide to beautiful Huangshan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your good review. Keep contact for future China tour activities. Take my best regards to your family.

Nature was simply a joy to be with. He was extremely knowledgeable and always took the time to ensure that we were comfortable. He gave us a great trip to Yellow Mountain in China and help navigate the tough hike. He really made our experience thoroughly enjoyable with his kind heart and sense of humor. We highly recommend him as a tour guide! Overall we have been very happy with the guides provided to us by TBL.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure. Happy Chinese New Year of Rat! Many blessing and best wishes for you and your family ~

Our 8 day private tour in the Huangshan was amazing. Our guide, Nature, lead us on beautiful mountain paths to view breathtaking scenery, explaining the story behind wonderful rock formations and pointing out flora and fauna. We visited ancient villages such as Xixinan village. We trekked in Qiyun Mountain to see Tao Temples and Jiuhua Mountain to see Buddhist Temples. The highlights for us were the mountains' scenery. Nature was knowledgeable on the region, flora, fauna and the best paths to take.

Nature and I planned the schedule well in advance by e-mail and everything went according to plan. He was a really excellent companion and very knowledgeable and attentive and flexible. I could not have hoped for a better guide. Putting the client in direct contact with the guide from the outset was a huge plus and I would recommend Tours by Locals and Nature to anyone.
Great services provided by Nature. He is always prompt in replying to message and always provide us with sufficient information for our preparation during the trip. Really miss the local food introduced by Nature :) Especially the 'Shao Bing' as well as all the food at local restaurant near Hong Chun. Our trip is more on the relax side as we have 2 elderly people. Hence, really thanks Nature for being patience and kind. Looking forward for next trip to Huangshan during other season with Nature again.
Nature communicates verbally well in English. Did an excellent job in accomodating 9 of us (one elderly) showing us the beauty of Huangshan from different point of the mountain. The tour is not cheap but worth the breath taking experience !

Nature was the best tour guide we have ever had. He made the potentially arduous 3 days in the mountains an absolute pleasure..thank you ��
While Huangshan itself is a phenomenal place, I have to say that our guide, Nature, really brought the place to life with his detailed descriptions. One can sense his enthusiasm for an area close to his heart and this rubbed off on us. Be prepared for a somewhat strenuous walk, limited only by your own physical ability. The weather was not particularly kind and many views were fogged out but we had a good moments and saw a spectacular sea of clouds.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks indeed for your good review. Hope to see you next time and inwardly like to advertise Huangshan to more travelers who want to explore here. And thanks again and appreciate so much that you and your wife have a nice impression on this region. Cheers!
We did a tour last week with Nature H. While the weather on the peak was poor, very cloudy and low visibility, Nature did his best to show us the interesting pine trees and told us a lot of historical and cultural information. We also visited interesting villages, and for us, one of the highlights was the food. Great food at lunch and dinner. He also did his best to help us when we found that our flight had been delayed, then later cancelled.

Nature is simply the best tour guide we have ever had. We had so many changes to our schedule because of flight cancellations but he accommodated all of them. He is very knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a guide for this area. Could not have been better.

Our tour guide did not live up to several promises he made when we booked our tour. We did not tour a local village as he originally promised, nor could we get to our hotel without a shuttle. During our mountain hiking tour, he paid minimal attention to us. He walked several hundred feet ahead, not speaking and on his phone most of the time. He may as well have not been there. He invited himself to dinner the first night, and tried to deny our own dinner being included in the package price the last night.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize that this tour did not go well. It was not my intention to walk ahead of you, I will be more aware of this in the future and will no longer use my cell phone during a tour. Please accept a 50% refund. Tours By Locals will be in contact about your refund.
We are avid travellers and have hired private tour guides in almost every part of the world. Nature was one of the best guides we have ever had. We had an exceptional four days together touring the Huangshan area. Nature was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his hometown. He is highly educated and is therefore able to deliver information in a detailed and interesting manner. He has a lovely personality and it was apparent that he genuinely cared about making sure we had an incredible time.
