------My Miao name is Along, Tony is my English name,my foreign teacher gave me this name while I studied at Guizhou University. I'm the only Miao tour operator and guide in Guiyang with 16 years work experience. I was born and lived in Upper Langde Miao village for nearlly 18 years before going to the university. Every year I still go back to my home in the village for about 10 times,about 8 times with tours,twice for family gethering during festivals. I especially love enjoying the time with my family and relatives for the Miao new year on the 10th lunar month and the New rice eating festival on the 7th lunar month. I likes bringing tourists to vist my village and have lunch at my home in the villge, my sister-in law prepares meals for my clients aftering they see music and dance performance, our clients also always do enjoy a great time there, furthermore the women there still continue to make their folk textiles because of the reasonable income from tourism industry, thus our cultural treasures are well preserved. I also like to listen to my clients for suggestions.

-----Tony has been to a great number of eithnic group villages in the remote regions of Guizhou since July 1997, he is more than a guide, he is unique, for more about him. The facts are much better proofs, see Tony's articles, Guizhou Miao Costumes and the testimonials.

-------Tony now works at Guizhou Overseas Travel Corporation and has a small team in his team which is composed of several high quality professional English-speaking guides, because we are a small team, we pay more attention to our clients'requests.

-------Except for the popular tour routes to Kaili, Leishan, Rongjiang,Congjiang,Sanjiang and Longji etc, Tony's greatest advantage is to arrange private tours to see mountain tribal festivals,textiles and costumes in remote regions of the province, the tours are flexible and he takes most of the tours to nothwest Guizhou-a lesser known and untouched region. Tony also arranges travelers to work in the fields and expenrience real village life in hidden tribal villages in the countryside. Remember his private tours are flexible for ethnic group markets and any other interesting ceremonious activities en route.


-------The last and the most important is that Tony-Along is Miao,he has the passion to understand,reserch and help his people, especially his village and family(sister-in law), he knows a lot about the Miao's real life, tradition, cultures, custom, religion, festivals, sense of beauty and the like,this is his greatest advantage-a Miao guide, 14 years'professtional working experience, 18 years'experience living in his village, knowledge about Miao culture with good oral English,there is no the second one in the whole province. Also the Miao seem more like to show much respect and hospitality to him because he is Miao, he knows how to show the respect to them and always gives pictures to them the next trip,this helps his tour go more smooth. Furthermore, they can stay at homes making some money from our need for performances, pictures of festival dress, embroidery stitch demonstration and purchasing textiles, the traditional textile skills are not going to die at some villages, so why not to make a tour with us.
