Xaq made us feel like invited guests to his home city. Doing a layover tour was great because we saw far more than we could if we tried it alone. We highly recommend Xaq to anyone visiting Guangzhou.

Xaq brought us around Guangzhou for his local neighbourhood tour and it really gave us insights into the city that we would have never seen by just visiting the tourist attractions. Very knowledgeable and fluent in multiple languages, made it a very interesting tour overall. Tour is also highly flexible to suit our interests and needs. If you're new to Guangzhou, Xaq is a very good choice to introduce you to the city. Hightly recommended!

It was great to get out of Guangzhou and see somewhere that not many westerners get to see. It was a great tour, fantastic sights and a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. All logistics were well arranged with a comfortable car and good driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Trevor, I hope to greet you again if you bring your family to visit Guangzhou. Have a smooth business trip and enjoy the rest of your stay in China! Best wishes, Xaq

The of this tour coincided with the arrival of a major typhoon. Xaq offered to cancel the tour, with a full refund, because the weather would not allow for a good experience. I had a few specific things I wanted to learn, like how to use the Guangzhou subway and public transit buses. Xaq and his driver braved the weather to come to my hotel and give me these experiences. We also had lunch at a Chinese restaurant. While there, Xaq wrote out, in Chinese, a list of dishes I should try on my own later.

This is a walking tour of a beautiful park in a city about two hours from Guangzhou. The park features both the seven crags, small "mountains" with hiking trails and a good sized lake. There are also many level walking trails. The park features many interesting activities, including guided boat rides through caves and beautiful wildlife. Xaq's knowledge of the area and culture, and willingness to adapt the tour to my interests, were excellent. Xaq's English is terrific, he's simply a good guy.

Xaq's tour was fantastic. Not only did he take us to interesting and historical landmarks of his home city, but he also shared the history of each location. He's very knowledgeable, friendly, and organized. Couldn't believe how well he timed everything! I highly recommend booking Xaq!

I highly recommend taking this tour with Xaq! The tour was so well organized right from the start. Xaq contacted us shortly after we booked to introduce himself, see what our interests were, and inform us where and when he would pick us up at the airport. He had such a great day planned for us and we enjoyed every stop. My family and I travel frequently and do a lot of tours and we were so impressed on how well this tour was executed. If you have time in Guangzhou, you should absolutely book this tour.

Our recent trip to Guangzhou was a wonderful experience - thanks to Xaq our guide. With his good command of English he pointed out and explained the sites to us. He was patient and answered our many questions without ambiguity. He was wonderfully polite and helpful, giving us tips and advice on food, shopping and local culture. Xaq, if you are reading this, thank you from all of us. You really made our time in Guangzhou unforgettable. We'll seek you again the next time we come to Guangzhou. Regards. Ben L

Our tour of Gaungzhou was done so well. Xaq did an exceptional job. We were hold up with getting our 1 hour visa and Xaq was quick to adjust our itinerary and still made sure that so many wonderful sights were visited. He even was able to squeeze in a prompt stop at the shopping area for us. I would highly recommend this tour and would say ask for Xaq. Thank you Xaq for making our visit to Gaugzhou a memorable one!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Juliet, it's my pleasure to show you the night view of my city even your layover time is short, I believe you have a good impression of Guangzhou!

We spent a wonderful one day tour at Christmas with Xaq. Amazing young man who really knows Guangzhou and shows his city with great pride and enthusiasm. His rapid responses and knowledge made arranging this tour very simple. Great English, great communication, friendly, helpful and knows great places to eat. We will be in contact with Xaq in the future for more tours and to use his translation skills. Thank you Xaq!

Xaq was very calm, flexible as well as informative. He did an excellent job by accommodating the needs of my 86 year old not so mobile Mom, dealing with my relatives from this city with their suggestions and pleasing the rest of us with all the English explanations.

Book Xaq right after you book your flight, he might even be able to recommend a hotel for you. Trust, patience, manners, flexibility and knowledge. Xaq was clear and organised from the initial email all the way to the polite farewell. I highly recommend his services in a city (and country) that has such a rich and varied tapestry of culture and business. Definitely worth the price for the ability to pack what would take a foreigner 3 days or more into 8 hours. Comes with car and driver. No time wasted.

Once I had booked with Xaq, he would be in touch with me often until I departed to see if I had any special requirements or needed to update details. He arrived punctually at the hotel, well attired and with good English skills. His suggested program went smoothly with an excellent knowledge of Guangzhou and Chinese history.

This was our first visit to Guangzhou (Dad & 4 adult kids), and we were very impressed with this beautiful city. Xaq's tour was everything we wanted - sightseeing highlights, feeding peacocks, delicious street food, helpful things like taking us to a pharmacy for cold tablets and showing us how to use the metro. His English is perfect and his communication in the lead-up exemplorary (our flight was 9 hours late). His driver Joe took care of us too. Couldn't fault our day with Xaq - perfect in every way!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Robert, I hope you will recover from your illness soon, and enjoy the rest of your days in my hometown Guangzhou^_^. You are welcome to let me know if you need any help or have any other question regarding your Guangzhou trip.

Xaq is an excellent guide with a superb knowledge of Guangzhou. He is extremely friendly and accommodating with excellent english. I requested a tour using public transport and walking rather than the usual offered by private car. Xaq meet all my needs and more packing so many experinces in my lmited time. My tour was enjoyable and informative and enabled me to experience the city as more as a local than a tourist and a pace that suited me pefertly. I highly recommend Xaq as your guide to Gaungzhou.

Xaq was most communicative which made our trip go smoothly. He kept us informed on what we needed to prepare for and what to expect so our tour was most enjoyable. No surprises. And because we were caught in holiday traffic, he helped us check in for our flight out. For first-timers in China, this was priceless. Xaq's English is impeccable and he gave us a lot of insight that enriched our knowledge of Chinese culture and enhanced our appreciation of Chinese people.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Emmy, it was an enjoyable day with you and your family. Have nice days to Shanghai and Beijing !

Zaq was very welcoming, accommodating, and polite, and made my food experience in Guanzhou a very memorable one. He came to pick me up at the end station of another tour, and brought me home at the end of our walking food tour. He also introduced me to the metro system, which was very helpful for the remainder of my stay. His command of English is pretty good, and he is a very positive and upbeat kind of fellow! Thanks very much, Zaq!!

Xaq contacted us before we left for Guangzhou and we managed to communicate on the itinerary via Whatsapp. He had planned the trip so that we could see everything. He is very good in English and was accommodating on the trip. He made many good recommendations on food and wholesale shopping. What stood out was that he continued to support any questions we had even after the tour ended. It felt like a trip with a friend.

Xaq was great. My wife and I, 70 our grand daughter 11 with no Cantonese at all. Xaq's knowledge of both GZ and China was wide and sympathetic. I learnt, saw and had explained the details which makes societies so much fun. Samantha (11) wanted with a passion a hover board and with Xaq's help an excellent one was found, negotiated and aquired. I do recommend Xaq, I will use him again. John Rogers New Zealand
