Amazing experience. Very comfortable trip thanks to the driver. Our guide Adam was taking care of every detail and he was so helpful. He has a very good knowledge on Chinese history. You will have fun same time you will learn a lot. If you are visiting Xiamen or nearby, this experience is a must!
Amazing earth buildings built with unbelievable ancient technology

Our tour guide Adam did a great job on historical story telling, he explained very well about how the people built those magnificent round buildings without any modern technology and materials hundreds of years ago. Truly amazing!
Lovely day trip to see Tulou and Hakka village

Took me a while to finically decide on joining the private tour as it’s quite expensive. Turns out it’s quite worth the price. The responds to my queries online were very quick and helpful. Our tour guide Adam was very prepared. He messaged me ahead of time and organised everything neatly. The 2 hours road trip was comfortable. Adam explained well everything regarding the places we saw as well as anything about Xiamen. We enjoyed the trip and would recommend to anyone who don’t mind to pay a bit more for a comfortable and hassle free day.
昔の集合住宅
hisakomori2002, 06-11-2019
昔の集合住宅だが、敵から身を守るための工夫が色々あり先達の知恵に驚くばかり、建物は風水により周りの山を亀に見立てその方向に入り口を作るなど感心させられることばかり、今も数家族が住んでいるらしいがトイレも風呂もないという、トイレはバケツに、畑の肥料にする。近くの川では洗濯をしている人もいた。文化的な生活に慣れている我々からは想像しがたい。
