Amazing guide!!!

This guide has an amazing knowledge database, and I could tell that he really cared about his job. I wish, I would know his name---was it Mark? However, this kind of guides are hard to find in China--speaking from experience. This tour takes you to all the places that it mentions, and they are beautiful! I really loved Guangzhou after having this tour! If you have one day in this city--this is a good price for a really good value that you are getting.

I was expecting to be in a group for the tour, but after waiting 45 minutes for another couple, the guide informed me that they had cancelled and that I would be alone on the tour. The guide and the driver were both very nice and polite, but I left rushed as I was the only person. I was disappointed in the lunch which was supposed to be a buffet, but as it was a holiday, the guide ordered from the menu without asking me what I would like. What he ordered was good, but I definitely left hungry! The places we visited were nice, but I really wanted more shopping.

This is an excellent lay over tour to get the feel of Chinese Culture, my favorite is the Lychee River md the Banyan Temple.

This was a day well spent with Mark the guide. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the history, not only of Guangzhou but it's place in China's history. As it happens I was the only person on the tour so I got the royal treatment. You'll see a side of China you perhaps hadn't expected - it's lovely.
I've visited many parts of China...

I've visited many parts of China, but was genuinely impressed by the locations visited which show more aspects of Chinese history and civilisation. Look out for the egg-shell porcelain and glass bottles painted inside - both delicate and wonderful examples of artistic skills not seen elsewhere in China.

I cannot relate the word amazing to this itinery, except Guangzhou's great change from its old history! No comment on tour guide Mark Ng who has done his job well, remembering all his text n history. But there's a lack of interaction n no signs of doing more.
Great tour ! even though we were...
