Right from my initial enquiry in December Abdul answered every email promptly and in perfect English which made everything just so easy. A three day program for one was organised in Kashgar with the proviso that if others joined then my price would be lower. (Another person did join and my price was reduced.)

Then a month before my May tour I changed the dates I would be in Kashgar slightly……no problem. I then wanted a two day Turpan tour…..again no problem.

Prior to my Turpan tour I caught the train from Yining to Urumqi. There was a lengthy delay and not speaking Chinese I didn’t know quite what was happening. A Chinese passenger phoned Muhammad Ali, told him what was happening, then Muhammad Ali explained the situation to me. That was really appreciated and assured me I was in good hands.

Ahmatjan guided me in Turpan and Tudajim in Kashgar. Both were knowledgeable locals passionate about and proud of their culture and heritage. Their excellent English made them great people to be with and I felt I was travelling with friends. Nothing was too much trouble for either and both went out of their way to ensure I enjoyed myself.

All in all I’m very pleased I chose to travel with Kashgar Guide and should I return to Xinjiang I’ll certainly be travelling with these guys again.

I just wanted to say, belatedly, thank you very much for organizing all the interesting day trips you did for us. They were all highlights in different ways – the cultural blockbuster was Mogao but the natural blockbuster was Shipton’s arch; and there were so many other wonderful things too. Xinjiang is a fascinating area and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring it with your help – it made it so easy for us and we nearly came in on budget!

Your guides were lovely and the drivers safe drivers. By the end of two long days Ali and Tudajim almost seemed like family! Please give them my best regards too.

Wishing you all the best with your venture and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Xinjiang Travel to anyone I know who is coming to NW China.

We booked our trip to North Xinjiang through Xinjiang Travels after checking with a couple of other travel agencies. Xinjiang Travels are very professional, accommodating and reasonably priced. We were very happy with the service provided by Abdul. Abdul was always very responsive to our needs. The hotels and transportation was well taken care of. Our driver, Paruk, has a deep knowledge of the area and is friendly and flexible. We really enjoyed this trip (the first anniversary for me and Ame). It was sunny and beautiful when we visited the apricot blossoms in Turgen. We strongly recommend the fruit valley and Sayram lake. The view along the highway is very impressive. Unforgettable trip, hopefully we have chance to visit other parts of Xinjiang next time. So we definitely recommend to all .
