Amazing tour in Dunhuang. Started in the morning with camel riding on Mingsha Mountain, and then a beautiful walk through the dunes to see the Crescent Lake. After lunch, the Mogao Grottoes were also stunning to see. My tour guide, Andy, was super helpful, picking me up from the railway station, helping me check in to my hotel, skipping long ticket lines everywhere we went. It would have been near impossible to see so many beautiful things in Dunhuang without him!

Interesting tour in Dunhuang
Sep 2018 • Friends
We have a very nice day that was a part of a 9 day tours in Gansu and Sichuan by Steven
The day in Dunhuang was really nice and beautiful
We visited the White Horse pagoda and local market, them it came to the highlights - Mogao Grottoes and after - the sand dunes
In the evening we went to the Silk Road show -really beautiful and non-touristic one that was recommended to us by Steven
Thank you Steven for organizing such a wonderful day
