About
See more of Mount Hua (Huashan) in one day with the benefit of a private tour from Xi’an. Your guide pre-books the necessary tickets so that you can spend your time exploring rather than waiting in lines.

Must book this tour with Bruce
Nov 2019 • Solo
To be clear this isn’t a “guided tour”, but transportation and excellent guidance and conversation by Bruce. Bruce picked me up in a timely manner from my
hotel in the morning with a smile on his face. We had a lovely chat about China, it’s people, customs, history and philosophy. He was very funny and his English was spot on. One of the best English speakers I’ve run into in China! We discussed what I wanted to see and do on the Mt. and when we arrived he bought the tickets for the cable cars and busses that I needed. I decided to go to the plank wall and was grateful it was open. All map signs on the wall have Chinese and English, however when you get to the plank wall “check in” desk there is no written English and the 2 guys checking passports do not speak any English. First I was told I couldn’t do the was because I was over 50. I argued I wasn’t OVER 50, but that I WAS 50....so they allowed me on. Then, I discovered that you can only go in pairs..meaning no solo climbers. Disappointed, I started to walk away but a very lively Chinese girl in line who spoke a little English helped me out and paired me with a solo guy in her group. In reality it seems they want groups of 4...not sure why, as you climb as like a group of 12!? Anyway, the wait ended up being about 2 hours and the climb took about 45 to 1 hour (from suit up to finish). It this point it was 4pm and due to the cable car closing I didn’t have time to finish the rest of the hike (but was successful in what I came to do). I went down the mountain the same way I came up (West Peak). When I got off the bus there was Bruce waiting for me at the bottom. He went out of his way to make sure I had a great trip by helping out some friends. By this action alone, I can tell that he is a compassionate, honest man with a good soul. He deserves abundant success. On the way back to Xi’an we had a wonderful conversation and shared favorite music. By far the best tour I’ve taken in China by the most compassionate man with stellar taste in music! Thank you Bruce!

Bruce Almighty
Just to be clear, this is not a guide to of the hike through Mount Huashan. It's transportation and organization of the ticket buying process. However, if you're lucky to have Bruce as your guide you will be showered with knowledge about the mountain, the area, the people, the good, and just about anything else you can think of. If you're real damn lucky, he might take you to eat his favorite dish in the Muslim quarter (sorry Bruce, hope people don't start demanding this ;)). Anyways, if you're in Xi'an and your going to Huashan, this is how you should go. More affordable than the other operators, and I can assure you Bruce's operation is to notch. Thanks again for the 羊肉泡馍!!!

Hassle-free trip to Mount Hua Shan
Aug 2019
We visited Mount Hua Shan during China school holiday period and the place was packed with local. luckily Bruce has prepared all the tickets (total of 5) beforehand and it saved us a lot of time and trouble (each ticket has to be bought at different location). Bruce has also arranged for us to go up by the north peak and come down by the west peak to go against the main crowd. Thanks to his expertise, we managed to catch the last cable car and come back down in time.

Bruce was very informative and engaging during our trip. We had never encountered such a spirited tour guide in our years of travelling. Definitely recommended for anyone looking for a hassle-free trip to Hua Shan.

Not to be missed when in Xi’an
Jul 2019 • Family
An excellent day climbing to more than 2,000 metres on steps cut into the face of Huashan mountain. Very busy and very, very hot (try to avoid school holidays).
Bruce made the day run smoothly with pre-purchased tickets and advice on how to avoid the worst queues.
Spectacular cable car ride to West Peak, worth the cost on it’s own.

Made all the difference
Jul 2019 • Family
We all (a family of 4 including a 16 and 18 year old), had a great day walking Hua Shan. I don't think we could have done it without Bruce. It made the organisation stress free. His English is fantastic, he is friendly and knowledgeable. He took us there and back from our hotel and arranged for all our tickets to be bought in advance so we didn't have to queue for them. He helped us get in the right queues and made it stress free. It was a busy Saturday and we went up the North cable car which was much quieter than the West. It means you are climbing up rather than down for the main part of the walk. We came down the West Cable car. We thoroughly recommend using this company. It was money well spent.

Amazing Day Trip to Mt Hua
A friend and I decided to experience a day trip to Mt Hua to experience the peaks. What an experience it was! The views and scenery were absolutely amazingly.

Depending on which peak you start at (North or West) dictates how much effort it requires. If you take the cable cars up to North, you have to ascend Black Dragon Ridge which can be quite taxing but also personally gratifying.

Mary and Mr Gao were really great. Picked us up early to avoid long queues, purchased tickets for us (and even gloves for hand rails on the mountain) and were very communicative with us over WeChat. Really made the experience smooth.

I would highly recommend this trip for anyone with an adventurous spirit and wishing for an unforgettable experience.

Bruce was 👍! A knowledgeable guy who made the trip down to Mt Huashan a memorable one. Suggested routes which were appropriate for us with kids aged 5 and 7. Recommended, don't leave Xi'an without seeing and enjoying this scenic attraction.
