About Me

Dear travellers around the world,

It’s my pleasure to introduce myself. my name is Jon and a resident of Lijiang City , I Love my hometown and I'm enjoying every moment in this city. I am a graduate of Lijiang Normal University and I have work experience of 9 years as a professional English-speaking tour guide, and I have been a guide for tourists from more than 40 countries. I have a tourism certificate and therefore very knowledgeable of what western tourists want and need to enjoy their travel.

Nobody likes to be treated as tourist when travelling, when I travel, I would like to go to communicate with the local people, to see the local market, to know the local life of the people, but not just go to some sightseeing places and take photos, get on the car and leave.We have an old saying: " Do not do to others what you would not have them do to you" , so I will not let you suffer from this.

Due to his great passion for tourism, Jon has dedicated himself in creating an unforgettable travel experience for every tourist who loves to explore natural landscapes, experience outdoor activities and exploit authentic local culture. With the big picture in mind, he launched Yunnan Private Tours in 2011 with its base in Lijiang Old Town.

We understand that competent tour guides play an invaluable role in actual tours to places where travelers are not familiar with and when their security is a main concern. Yunnan Private Tours is made up of outstanding and independent tour guides from Kunming, Dali, Lijiang and Shangrila. Each tour guide in the team is personally handpicked and proven by Jon within the past several years. Their integrity, congeniality and professionalism are highly endorsed. We ensure the consistent quality of our service as a hallmark of Yunnan Private Tours.

How is Yunnan Private Tours different from other tours?

-We provide customized tours

For whatever reason, many tourists would rather travel independently than go along with the tour group. However, with our 10-year work experience, we have met a great number of cases where most of them are customized tours. Thus, we have excelled in making travel more flexible and enjoyable with our tailor-made tours designed to meet your personal needs and preferences. Just tell us what you expect and we will do the rest for you!

-All of the tours are at your own pace and comfort

With our professional, state-of-the-art service, we do our utmost to let you travel around Yunnan at your own convenience and satisfaction.

-Most of our tours are off the beaten tracks

Most of the breathtaking sceneries in Yunnan are remote and not easy to access. With our service, we can help bring you to them not only by car, but by hiking through the off beaten paths or by horse-back. You will be assured of an authentic Yunnan outdoor experience with us.

-We provide our travelers with the opportunity to interact with the local village people.

In order to give our clients a unique experience, we usually provide home-stay to have meals together with village families and also a time to explore the vicinity on their own.

-Our guides are passionate about traveling and in sharing the local cultures.

Guides assigned to you are very warm and outgoing. Not only are they knowledgeable of your travel destinations, but are also easy to communicate with. They will do the extra mile in sharing to you the local cultural highlights.

If you have any question or request, Just feel free to contact me. I will get back to you in 24 hours!

    We had a wonderful Yun Nan tour with Jon, Tom and driver Nian. They have shown us an authentic local culture and beautiful nature that mass tourism would not see. Thank you Jon! And wish to see you again in amazing Yun Nan!

     Jon arranged a fantastic holiday for myself, my husband and our daughter who is living in Shanghai. He listened to all our requests and responded very promptly. We spent 8 days in Yunnan Province with our guide Sandy who is a local Naxi man with a real knowledge and love for this part of the world. We especially loved Shaxi, Tiger Leaping Gorge and our travels along the Yantze more

    I brought my parents to Lijiang in Nov 2015 and Jon took us around for 4 days. During the trip, he not only demonstrated his knowledge and ethics as a guide (being on time, not taking us to overpriced restaurants..etc) but he had also shown that he was very good at taking care of his more
