Very open person, supporting in everything, always smiling and showing passion and love for his job. We spent 5 days together and he never steps out of the line. Much respect and will suggest this tour to friends.

If you need a chaperone to take you around Larry is great. But his English is not very good, listening and comprehension, vocabulary and pronounciation, not able to have a conversation, just basic questions and answers. He is reliable, very flexible, and a nice person. He is not your typical local guide that knows history, geography or geology of the place, he cannot give you any details of the parks, basic things like fauna, flora, rock formation, height of the cliffs, etc.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. The highlight of my tours is providing private vehicle service with afordable price. And make sure you get to every destinations and attractions in time. I am sorry that I didn't reach to your expectation. I will keep study and improve my English and other related knowlages. Thank you again for your precious review.

Tour: Zhangjiajie Customized Tour For Robert's Group, Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China
Date: May 30/18

Larry was outstanding! He was very knowledgeable about the sights- we saw Avatar Mountains/ Mt. Tianzi, the Glass Bridge over the Grand Canyon, and Mt. Tianmen/Heaven's Gate/Stairway to Heaven. Larry was also invaluable in saving us time by knowing certain tricks about the area- what time to buy a ticket, etc. We had a better experience and utilized available time much better than other Westerners that had no guides or Mandarin fluency. We highly recommend Larry if you plan to visit the Zhangjiajie area!

Tour: Private Vehicle Service for Denise's Group of 10 people (weekend tour), Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China
Date: Nov 10/17

Great weekend with our lovely guide Larry. All was very well organised by him and he was very patient with us (a group of 10 loud Europeans ;P) and helped us get wherever we wanted to go. He also helped with the decision making when time was tight as he knew the area very well. He chose two restaurants for us and we had a lovely local dinner. Unfortunately, weather wasn't good but Larry managed to still show us the nicest places in such a short time of only two days.

Tour: Zhangjiajie Classic 2 days Tour with Extra 2 Days Airport Pickup and Drop-off Service for Michelle's Group (5 people), Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China
Date: Oct 16/17

Larry tried to be helpful but He really doesn't know how to conduct a tour. Often He was far ahead of the group and never told us anything about the area we were passing. The weather was bad but he should have helped by telling us things that would increase our interest I would not recommend him to do a tour in English

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The van we provide is comfortable and roomy enough for all of your luggage and your group members. We took you to and explored all of the attractions that you like in the original itinerary. Skipped the ones you don't want to visit. I tried to follow your pace and catch you up, so I could show and guide you the way. Rainy is a common weather in this mountain area. I wasn't expect the light rains could make you such unhappy. I'm sorry I didn't tell you much jokes and funny things that could make you happy.

Larry was a fun and impressively energetic companion during my two days in the Zhangjiajie area. Traveling to a Chinese national park in July/August presents lots of logistical challenges (huge crowds, stormy weather, potentially sold-out tickets to popular attractions, etc.), but Larry took them all in stride and did his absolute best to make my tour smooth, memorable, and enjoyable.
