Everything was just too perfect! Well organized from the minute I was picked up. Very sweet and knowledgeable young girl with fluent English. Ronan knew a lot about the area, I got around very easily so it saved me a lot of headache and planning. Saw the beautiful Tianmen Mountain, Heaven’s Gate, Glass Bridge and Cable Car. Unfortunately Sky Walk was closed due to snow. But that has nothing to do with the guide. Had a good time and would definitely recommend booking this if you want a happy and organized tour!
