Pearl River Night Cruise & Eveing Tour in Guangzhou with Private Transport
"Our tour guide met us at our hotel lobby. He notified the front desk to relay a message to us upon checking in as to his name, Jack, and when he will be by to pick us up and to have our passports with us. Jack was on time and he had a driver waiting outside. Upon arriving at the cruise destination, he purchased the tickets and accompanied us on the Pearl River night cruise. It was just the 4 of us, our party of 3 and Jack. Jack spoke excellent English. The Pearl River night cruise in Guangzhou was spectacular. The buildings, bridges, retail shops along the wharf were lighted up. The cruise was about an hour. It may be the best night river cruise that I have experienced. While during the night, water cruise, the tour guide provided background information about what we were seeing. But, what I appreciate even more is his knowledge of the history of Guangzhou and China. His insights provided perspective on the City itself and of the significance of the Pearl River delta. Lastly, since we were taking a Bullet train to Toishan/Taishan City the next day, not being familiar with the Train Station nor how it is lay out, Jack provided general instruction as to how to navigate the train station (it was hugh- akin to Grand Central station in New York) and to top it off, he provided his phone number to call if we encountered any problem. Jack is an outstanding tour guide. If we were ever in Guangzhou again, I would give Jack a call to enlist his service for a private tour of Guangzhou."..."

Private Guangzhou night tour with Pearl River Cruise and Canton Tower
"My husband and I had a wonderful experience in this private tour with Guangzhou Local Tours, the Cantonese dim sum dinner at a traditional local restaurant(tea house was what they called) was a highlight, we had the most delicious authentic dim sum ever! We were the only foreigners eatting in the restaurant among the locals and we enjoyed that very much, not touristy place. After dinner we had a relaxed walk at Flower City Square, we were impressed by the gorgeous lights in the modern city after dark, we saw Guangdong Provincial Museum, Guangzhou Opera House, Asian Games Park, Canton Tower and Guangzhou Library. The book automatic circulation system and book shower machine(ultraviolet scanning sterilized) in Guangzhou Library is really amazing! Our guide Zack is very knowledgeable about his hometown(Guangzhou) , speak perfect English and provided great insight to the local culture and history of the city. The tour ends at Canton Tower wharf so one could easily extend their trip on their own by visiting Canton Tower(take elevator to go up) or taking the night cruise on Pearl River, the landmark and must to do things in Guangzhou. It's such a smooth and well planned tour we experienced and learned a lot in 3 hours! Highly recommended!"..."

Xiamen Layover Day Tour-Gulangyu,Shuzhuang Garden And Piano Museum
"This layover tour was a very positive experience for me and highly recommended. It was my first time in China and I felt safe traveling alone at way pass 70 years old. Safety should be foremost for every traveler at any age. The tour operator took care of even minute details to make the tour very comfortable, personalize , and flexible. The car provided looks new with a personable and courteous driver. Water and fruits were provided for snacks. My flight arrived 2 hours later than the schedule tour so lunch was scrapped. But Instead I was given several boxes of pastries from the famous bakery in the island for me to take home and to give away as gifts. Its a good thing. The tour guide , Adam from Tulou Travel , speaks fluent English and very knowledgeable about Gulangyu Island and other interesting places to visit in Xiamen. He was enthusiastic about his job and gives a lot of insights about future travel in Xiamen. Gulangyu Islands is very historical and picturesque. Architecture is so diverse some places reminds me of Europe. There's a lot of walking to do and lots of places can only be reach by climbing up several flights of stairs. Trolleys are available though to those who are not inclined to walk. It's an experience worth taking ."..."
