my girl friend and I had an amazing tour around the old town of Pingyao with our guide Jonathan. With excellent English skills he gave os such a wonderful experience and a lot of knowledge of the town, its history and some fun fact about the food, architecture and culture. Jonathan had such a great personality with a high passion for his job and the town of Pingyao, which reflected on us, but still recognised when we needed a bit of privacy but as well company.
Unfurtuantly we only had one day in Pingyao, as it is such a wounderfull old town with a lot of culture, thereby we would recommend a stay on minimum 2 days but 3 would be best and as well highly recommend Plum tours and Jonathan as your guide as he really understand the needs of his customers!
Thanks for booking the tour with us. As we said We always Focus on Your Traveling Experience. So I think the food tour is not only taste the food, and should explian more history and information of the buidling we passed, it can help you understand the insight of Pingyao.and why this food is served to visit and for locals too. About the visiting time of Pingyao, you can choose one night or two nights, If you stay one nigth at Pingyao, you just can visit Pingyao Highlights and one of the two temples nearby, but you have to arrive in lunch time on first day and leave afternoon on second day. If you stay two nights, you can hire the taxi to visit Mianshan, or Qiao Family Compound and other sights around Pingyao. We are open to every toursits, and can give you the good suggestions about your Pingyao Tour.
We always Focus on Your Traveling Experience.
Thanks again and best regards
