I could not expect excellent, diligent, friendly guide than Alex. He was very helpful from the first time we contacted. His knowledge is more than expected and he has an incredible knowledge on Chinese history as well as on Sichuan. I really enjoyed the 6 days with him. He is a very friendly open-minded guy and he gave me a wonderful outlook on China. Max
