Last July, my wife and I took the high-speed train from Shanghai to Nanjing. We were met at the Nanjing station by Samantha accompanied by a driver and had an excellent visit to local sites. She was very professional and had a warm personality. We enjoyed our tour of Nanjing with her.

Thanks for everything Sam

We are a family of 8 from United States and Canada. We were very hopeful of this trip to China and Nanjing was one of the 6 cities that we visited. Samantha speaks perfect English and has excellent knowledge of all the sites and the city of Nanjing in general. She is a true professional tour guide who possesses all of the necessary qualities, including friendliness, personable, humorous, caring and passionate. We all enjoy the time together with Sam and would definitely invite her to be our guide again if we were to go back to Nanjing one day. Highly recommend Samantha!

Great experience

Samantha, thank you so much for the great help you and Mr Yu were in our visit to our daughter's orphanage in Yangzhou.  You really made our visit smooth, comforting and informative. And you were a great help in our discussions at the orphanage. Thank you for helping make our trip very memorable! It was truly a great experience!

Sam helped us find our way around Nanjing on the day we arrived 4 years ago. She was friendly and very helpful and made us feel welcome even though it was cold and everything was strange to us.

Excellent Guide for a Lovely City

We really enjoyed our two-day trip through Nanjing with Samantha and her driver in October. We are a group of 4 people, 2 English-only and 2 Chinese speakers who needed a guide and driver while in Nanjing. Samantha fit the bill perfectly. We started day 1 with a tour of the Nanjing Holocaust Memorial museum, then a trip to the city wall, a lovely walking street, a house tour. and finished with a tour of a Confucian temple. On the second day we went to another part of the city wall and the first Ming emperor's tomb. Along the way, we stopped for local cuisine. Samantha was very personable and flexible. Her English is excellent, and it was nice for our Chinese friend that she could also provide him with the tour information as well. We really enjoyed her company and would highly recommend her services. Her driver is very careful and accommodationg. Thanks for everything, Samantha - we hope to see you in the US sometime!

Great Nanjing Tour Guide

Samantha met us in Nanjing and was an excellent tour guide. She knew her way around and had great knowledge of the city. If we return to Nanjing we will definitely use her services again. Thank you Samantha!

Nanjing Two Day City Tour

Had Sam as my private tour guide in Nanjing for two days and was thrilled with her knowledge of the history and local tourist highlights. We added on to the original itinerary that was planned and she went out of her way to show me some of the less traveled paths along the city wall.

If I were to visit Nanjing again, I'd definitely have her as my tour guide. Her command of English is strong and she is well traveled herself. 

If you visit Nanjing, it seems like two full days on the ground is ideal. I had approximately 24 hours between the train arrival and train departure t+1, so it was a bit tight schedule wise. Do ensure you have enough time and energy (not jet lagged) to spend at the lake as it is very serene.

We also visited a restaurant popular with locals - still near touristy areas but could not see a single tourist inside.

An instant friend in a new place. I am really happy to have made her as my tour guide. The food she showed me around town was good but what she cooked herself was way better.

Thanks you again for the WONDERFUL touring you so kindly provided in Nanjing! - My final day went well and saw all and in the full depth I wanted to (Nanjing Memorial Museum) and also found the silk weaving museum nearby as advised. Clearly Nanjing is only #2 to Beijing for any tourist that really wants to ‘learn China’ - Shanghai & Xian pale in comparison. I can’t believe Nanjing has remained so undiscovered by western tourists - and so simple to get around most of it in English - including in-depth museums in English. But so much to see, including much that would be difficult to really get to on one’s own in English and certainly would take a couple of extra inefficient days to just kind of cover!

My friend will be there sometime, MAYBE later this month.
Please give my thanks to your driver uncle also.

    Second time of using Samantha`s services. Samantha is an outstanding tour guide who provided my family with prompt, polite, and informative private tour services. She customized our tour to include visits to all the places that we wanted to see in Nanjing. She speaks fluent English and is very knowledgeable about all the locations that we visited. She also has a very good sense of humor which made our day even more enjoyable. The car provided for our private tour was clean and the driver very skilled, polite, and patient. Samantha also was helpful with giving us restaurant options and with purchasing high speed rail tickets to travel to other parts of China. Overall, we had an excellent time in Nanjing thanks to Samantha and her tour services. I very highly recommend.
