  • Fantastic tour guide Gerry and safe and sensible driver Mr Lee. Gerry is really passionate and knowledgeable about the Longmen Grottos and the White Horse Temple. The sites and their history are amazing. Nice lunch in a local restaurant I notified the tour company in advance I am vegetarian - and a nice meal of several tasty dishes was served. Very accommodating in adapting the tour to meet my needs as I was arriving from Xi'an by train. Smooth pick up and drop off from / to the Luoyang Longmen Station with the tour condensed from 8 to 6.5 hours, but the day didn't feel rushed.

  • Our guide and driver were excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited and she was able to tell us many interesting facts about the sites. The Luoyang Grottos was well worth the walk. My only caveat is that you need to be able to walk for a couple of kilometres and climb quite a few stairs. The White Horse Monastey is beautiful. There is a lot of interesting buildings to see and the landscaping is beautiful. The lunch we were served was very tasty and filling. Altogether a good day.
