What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Guangzhou City Sightseeing Including Yuexiu Park

Yuexiu Park in Guangzhou

Yuexiu is the largest downtown park in Guangzhou, a sprawling site that covers 213 acres (86 hectares). It contains a mountain, three artificial lakes and numerous cultural relics among its many highlights. Traveling with your private guide makes it possible to make the most of your visit to Yuexiu Park and visit its highlights on foot.

Start your private tour with morning pickup at your centrally located Guangzhou hotel and ride in an air-conditioned minivan to Yuexiu Park. During the ride through the city, learn from your guide about Guangzhou's history, top sights and culture.

Begin by walking along an old city wall that dates to the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) and stop at the iconic landmark, Zhenhai Tower. This 14th-century pagoda has been destroyed and rebuilt five times. Its current incarnation features a renowned museum that details the history of Guangzhou going back 2,000 years. Your guide takes you inside the museum for a closer look at the informative exhibits.

Continue to another top attraction: the Temple Of The Five Immortals. Learn the significance of the site and pose for photos outside, a must-do when in Guangzhou. Your guide shares the legend of the five rams who carried five gods to the impoverished region 2,000 ago. The gods blessed and fed the people of the area, then departed. Subsequently, the region became affluent – a story that resounds as true in the modern-day city.

Leaving Yuexiu Park, follow your guide on a stroll through the Xi Guan area and Shang Xiajiu Road. Your guide points out Cantonese-style architecture along the streets as you experience the vibrant energy of modern Guangzhou, apparent even on this historic street. After four hours, your tour ends when you return to your hotel by minivan.

This tour was amazing!

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2015

The booking was easy, we contacted the tour operator to make sure everything was confirmed. While booking I had provided the hotel address and paid the full price for the tour. The guide was supposed to come to the hotel but upon confirmation we were told that we need to meet the guide at a different location and they will charge us an addition 900 Yuan to get picked up from the hotel. Since we did not speak the language we had no option but to accept. This sort of rip off is a standard in China and Hong Kong. We had the same experience on the Hong Kong tour.

Otherwise, the tour was excellent and our guide was really good. If not for this pick up issue, I would have given it a 5 star.
