Excellent guide and a great day out, well worth the journey from London , UK. We had never heard of the Longmen Grotto and were really surprised at the impressive construction. The Shaolin temple was as also superb, shame it rained all day. We travelled by train from Xian in business class, fantastic trains.  more..
