This tour was excellent. From the time I arrived on the train to the time I departed, I was in the hands of a pro, my tour guide Christina. Our first stop was Hongcun Village, a picturesque ancient town with a lot of local culture to learn about and experience. Christina helped me sample some of the local food, communicating to the locals about my food allergy. In the evening, I stayed near Tunxi Old Street which was a pleasant place to walk, shop, and have dinner. Days two and three were spent on Yellow Mountain. We had terrible weather! Fog covered the mountain the whole time. Bad luck. If I was rating the mountain it would get less stars ;). My guide kept things pleasant and cheerful, and took pictures for me. She was knowledgeable about the mountain and local culture so at least listening to her was interesting. When I decided to leave the mountain a little early, she was very accommodating and helpful with the trains. If you try it, good luck with the weather, and maybe plan a little flexibility in your schedule and check the weather reports!

Went to Hongcun Village on our first day and learned a lot about the unique architecture of the old buildings. After that, toured around Tunxi Old Street which was a rather pleasant visit due to it being the off-peak season when we were there.

The next day we went to Huangshan mountain and learned much about the history of it on the way up the mountain. We also managed to catch the beautiful sunset which is a very rare and delightful experience.

Our guide, Vans, brought us to a few parts of the mountain that not many people know about, thus escaping the crowds and giving us the opportunity to take much more beautiful pictures of the scenery as a family.

The hotels that we patronised were comfortable and exceeded our expectations.

Overall, we really enjoyed the experience with Vans as our tour guide in Huangshan. We hope that we can visit again soon!

A most enjoyable trip! HuangShan is truely magnificent- granite mountain but a different majesty to the Rocky Mountains of North America. The pine trees are truely flat topped, as in traditional Chinese art - not artistic liscense as I imagined! Mukeng Bamboo Forest is where the sword fight scene on top of bamboo was filmed in “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon”. Our tireless guide is Louise Zhang. Never stoped for a moment, and is particularly suitable if hiking is your forte!! To top it off, she knows where the good food places are - we are of Chinese ancestry and know our food! Would highly recommend HuangShan if you can only see one mountain in China (we also saw MianShan, EmeiShan, WuTangShan, HengShan in ShanXi province, and JiangJiaJie this trip). Our guide Louise Zhang was a major contributing factor in providing such enjoyment and satisfaction during our too short a stay here.

We had a fantastic time in the Huangshan area. We started in Shanghai and the train tickets were delivered directly to the hotel, which made pickup very easy. Our guide, Sunny, was extremely friendly and met us at the train station with a clear sign. She was very knowledgeable about the area and Chinese history/culture in general. I highly recommend visiting the Huangshan mountains.

Our visit to Huangshan and the Yellow Mountains was 2 days and 2 nights filled with history, unbelievable views, interesting shopping, and great food; made all the better due to our amazing guide Selena. Having her with our group answering questions, leading us to the best views and pointing out the best places for snapshots, taking us to a favorite local restaurant, or helping to find the best deals in the market, is the difference between a good visit and a memorable one. Selena went above and beyond as our guide for this segment of our trip and made our time in Huangshan one of the highlights of our China tour.

We arranged a 4-day, 3-night private tour of Huangshan for our group of 6 through Travel China Guide. This is just about the right amount of time if your goal is to explore both the front and back ranges and see as much of the mountain as you can. We started our tour exploring the Tunxi old street in Huangshan city, after being met at the train station by our tour guide, Alvin. Alvin spoke excellent English, was very knowledgeable about the area, and was patient and flexible with our group.
The next morning, Alvin arranged the transportation to the park, storage of our luggage at a local hotel in the village (you carry only backpacks with you on top of the mountain), and the cable car ride to the top of the mountain. We started on the front mountain side by catching the cable car at Mercy Light Pavilion. We then hiked a short distance to see the picturesque Greeting-guest Pine and had lunch at the Yuping Hotel. After lunch, we hiked another couple hours and saw Lotus Peak, went through the Narrow Cliff, and climbed Turtle Peak, before finally arriving to our hotel for the 1st night, Baiyun Hotel. This hotel is an older facility with limited dining choices, but adequate for our needs. After checking into the hotel and a brief rest, we hiked the 1 hour to the Fairy Walking Bridge. Definitely worth the effort with spectacular views of the canyon and surrounding peaks.
On the 2nd day on top of the mountain, we caught the funicular railway at Tian Hai Station to the bottom of West Sea Grand Canyon and then hiked backed up the other side of the canyon. At Alvin's suggestion, we hiked up the right side of the 2nd Ring and on the left side of the 1st ring to get spectacular views of both the canyon and surrounding mountains. The trails are very steep, so it took us about 3 hours to get back to the top. For a less physically-demanding experience, it's probably better to hike down and take the funicular back up the canyon.
The weather in Huangshan can be highly unpredictable. Just as we arrived to our 2nd hotel, Xihai Hotel, it started raining and got very foggy, which prevented us from doing anything else the rest of the afternoon. Fortunately, the Xihai Hotel is new and modern with comfortable rooms, so it was a nice place to spend the rest of the day. They have an excellent dinner buffet, which is highly recommended even if you don't stay at this hotel.
The next morning, the rain stopped and the fog lifted just in time for our descent down the mountain. We got fantastic pictures of the peaks surrounded by mist and low clouds. After exploring parts of the back mountain in the morning, we made our way to the White Goose station to take the cable car back down the mountain. After picking up our stored luggage at the local hotel in the village, Alvin arranged a delicious lunch at a restaurant close to the Huangshan north train station, so that we could take our high-speed train back to Shanghai afterwards.
All in all, our Huangshan tour was a memorable experience and one of the highlights of our trip to China. Definitely highly recommended and a must see for nature lovers. Using an experienced tour company like Travel China Guide to arrange all the trip details and guide us on our tour was also worth it.

We booked the trip to Huangshan, traditional village and old town with Travel China Guide. It was a private tour for 10 of us. Pick up and drop off were all on schedule. Our English speaking guide, April, was amazing! She is pleasant, passionate, knowledgeable, patient, puncture, caring and fluent in English. She is also a nature lover. We have learned different plants and herbs from her during the tour. It was one of the most memorable and reliable tours we ever had. Great job!

My wife and I recently took a two-day tour to Yellow Mountain. After being picked up from the train station by our guide Bruce, we first visited the town of Hongcun village. This was a magnificent town which is developed in the design of an Ox, with different parts of the village representing the parts of the Ox. The village is very traditional and I recognised the parts used in the film Crouching Tiger.
After a night’s rest in Huangshan, we headed up the mountain by cable car, on the way to the cable car we were lucky enough to see a family of monkeys in the trees!! The journey up the cable car on its own was amazing, with spectacular views. On arrival at the top of the mountain we trekked to a number of different location and peaks with each view more exciting than the last. There was a lot of mist swirling around the mountain at this time and the view would come and go. So even when standing in the same spot the view would magically change with the mist.
After lunch Bruce brought us down to the Grand Canyon area of the mountain, this is a much steeper part of the mountain as you descend down in to the valley. Although a though climb the sense of being surrounded by the mountain was incredible. After this we walked up to see the peak at flying over rock from where we were able to see the path we had taken through the mountain. We arrived back at the hotel in time to see a spectacular sunset on the mountain.
The following morning, we got up early to see the sunrise. Although the views were beautiful, the clouds conspired against us to prevent the prefect scene, although the crowds that made the effort were no disappointed in views we got. After a quick breakfast we headed back out trekking on the mountain trying to fit in as many of the locations as we could before heading back to the cable car.
Our time in the mountain was all too short, it was a breath-taking adventure which was well worth the effort of getting there.

We travelled to the Yellow Mountains with Travel China Guide earlier this month. We were 2 families traveling with 5 kids aged between 9-14.

The beauty of these mountains is simply breathtaking and you can see how these craggy peaks covered in mists have inspired Chinese paintings for centuries.

Our guide Bruce spoke excellent English and made the trip very comfortable. He was friendly and chatty and engaged well with our kids

Our 2 day trip started when we arrived in Huangshan in the afternoon and spent the evening exploring the charming Tunxi old street. The next morning we left for the yellow mountains and took the cable car up to the the national park. We got the day to explore the mountains walking to the various viewing points with Bruce, each more spectacular than the other.
The next morning we headed back to the base of the mountain via cable car and then drove to the picturesque Hongcun village where we had a delicious lunch before heading on to the next part of our tour.
The weather on the mountain is unpredictable but we were very lucky! Despite thunder storms at night we were fortunate that the lightning had stopped during our cable car trip or else we might have experienced a delay.

The trip to the yellow mountains was definitely a highlight of our China travel and we’d highly recommended it.
