Full description
With pick-up from your downtown hotel at around 08:30, board your comfortable vehicle and head to Guangzhou for a day's sightseeing.

Follow your guide to visit the ancestral Temple of the Chen Family, famed for its exquisite craftsmanship, including wood, stone, and brick carving, and metalwork using copper and iron. Admire the most characteristic Guangdong architecture and learn its history. Continue to explore the European style buildings on Shamian Island, which used to be the concession area in the 19th century. Wander around the most exotic place in Guangzhou to enjoy the quiet and beautiful environment.

After having lunch in a local restaurant, move on to Guangzhou’s largest park of Yuexiu Park to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Marvel at the Five-Ram Sculptur carved from 130 pieces of granite and the Zhenhai Tower, also named Five-Storied Pagoda, both of which are symbolic sites in the city. After that you will visit the 1500 year old Temple of the Six Banyan Trees. The highlight of the temple is the 57.6 meters high Flower Pagoda. It appears to have 9 storeys, but inside there are actually 17 storeys. Discover its history and importance to Buddhism.

Afterwards, return to your hotel to conclude your Guangzhou highlights trip.

Very organised, on time pick up, well informed guide.

Very well worth touring the city. I was impressed with how easy, and fast it was too book. Also got them to pick us up from our hotel that was not on their pick up list. We booked and went on a second tour the next day. Private guides too.
