Matthew Meier:
Chinese/English Tour Guide

Mathew grew up in a small town in Northern California and graduated from The University of California, San Diego. An avid traveler, he has spent 5 years studying, living and working in Suzhou, China. After leading tours in various parts of the world, he returned to the U.S. and founded MaxTour, a service that would help Chinese travelers discover and explore the American Southwest. When Matthew isn’t leading a tour, chances are he’ll be studying Chinese, playing with his son, or unwinding with a good book.

THE ROAD AHEAD

We are a small company – and we think of that as our primary advantage. Being a small company lets us create genuine, lasting relationships with all of our guests. That hands-on approach is what drives MaxTour, and what sets us apart from other tour agencies. As we grow, we vow to never lose sight of these relationships that mean so much to us.

Hear It From Our Guests

OMG I can't believe this tour is so good!!!

This is the best tour we have ever had. Despite the short duration of the tour (2 days), we managed to visit so many spots and spent ample amount of time in each spot, thanks to Matthew’s organizations and experiences. Not only is Matthew knowledgeable and experienced in what he does, but more importantly he is friendly and courteous and above all he CARES about his customers. The ride is comfortable and most of all safe. Overall, this trip is worthy every penny. If you are thinking of visiting the spots covered in this tour, we definitely recommend Matthew and MaxTour and are confident you will not regret.
