Our tour guide was very talented and knew a lot about the history and the places we went too. I didn’t realise my hotel was situated within close proximity to two of the historical sights. The transportation was a bit run down but got us where we needed to go. Water was also offered.

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.

The history of Guangzhou is incredible, and learning about the culture, the background to the creation of the city and the vibrant and successful city is today was great

It was ver wonderful and helpful tour. Thank you!!
