This tour was for me and my 11 year old son. We were picked up from the airport, which did cost us extra, however it meant I had no hassle at all. The tour guide had very good English and was very knowledgeable, she was able to answer any questions we had about anything we saw. Would have liked her company at lunch to possible talk about some of the food, however the lunch was still delicious. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
The tour was outstanding. Our driver called us at our hotel the night before the tour to arrange the start time. Our guide and driver picked us up promptly at the agreed-on time. Our guide spoke English very well, had grown up in the area, and gave us an excellent description of each of our stops. We stopped at a Buddhist Temple first. It happened to be the first day of the Lunar Month and there was a lot of activity there. We made two other stops before lunch. Both were very interesting and our guide told us about the history and customs at each stop. The lunch was excellent - very nice restaurant, very good food, and great service. We made three stops after lunch, including "Chinatown in China", as our guide joked. It was a great shopping district where the streets were closed off to traffic. The driver was excellent and the mini van was air-conditioned and very comfortable. It was a very educational, lively, and thoroughly enjoyable tour. I stongly recommend it. Guangzhou is large (17 million people) and would be extremely difficult to get around in without a good knowledge of the City. The tour made for a great day.
My wife and I thought the Pearl River Night Cruise a quite remarkable experience. Never before have we seen lighting used in the way it is on the Pearl. Brilliant fireworks have their place in ephemeral displays of light, colour and spectacle, but the elegance and the sheer number of riverside features, buildings, bridges, boats, ferries, all illuminated by the brilliant placement of lighting, made for a memorable experience for us both.
It is a trip we highly recommend that any visitor to Guangzhou take in. Thanks to you and our guide on the night.
We only had 1 full day in the city so I convinced my husband that we should book this trip. It was definatly worth it. We were picked up from the hotel by our guide. Jack spoke fantastic English and was extremely knowledgable in the city and it's history. We saw lots of interesting things. The old kings buriel place was very interesting.
We had a lovely lunch and dropped off at the end of the day. It was a little expensive but we had a driver and a guide exclusively to ourselves for 6 hours. It was worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
I highly recomend this tour, great guide who spoke english fluently and was very very knowlegeable and very willing to answer any questions we had. Great sights well worth the experience. Only disappointment was the lunch was in a restuarant that was a little run down but food was fine.
We only had a couple of days to spend in Guangzhou so we decided to book this whole day tour to take in the most of the city. We were very glad that we did. Frank, our tour guide, was very informative. The sites that we visited were all very interesting. But the comments and site-seeing between these was very interesting as well.
I was on a business trip to Guangzhou with my colleagues and this tour is a wonderful intro to the city! Time well spent!
I loved it
This tour was interesting and our guide was helpful and friendly. However, it is expensive to go on
these tours and quite easy to get around by taxi so I would not recommend it.
We paid extra for a pick-up from the airport but couldn't find our guide. A clearer meeting point should be made.
To be honest this tour was very disappointing. It was very expensive for my daughter and I to go on.
We could not understand our guide easily. We were taken to the boat and he left us and advised
there would be an english translation of the Pearl River. This was not the case and we didn't have
a clue what the landmarks were. It was by far the worst tour I have ever done and I booked 2 in
Guanzhou in China and 2 transfers in Rome with Viator for this holiday.
