Mark was a great guide and we learned a lot during our trip to Hangzhou. It was certainly a highlight of our trip to China! We had some timing issues on our end (no fault of Mark's), but he worked hard to make sure we got to see and do as much as possible and provided interesting history at every location.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for rating!

Tour: Shanghai and Tongli Two Days Tour, Shanghai, Shanghai, China
Date: Oct 26/19

Mark did a great job! He was patient and accommodating, knowledgeable, professional, and good with logistics. We went on a two day tour, one to the major sights in Shanghai and one to the Tongli Water Village. Both were wonderful, but Tongli was a really unique, classically Chinese place, where local people visited. I'm glad we saw the sights of Shanghai, but I loved getting out of the city and seeing where local folks go to relax/shop/dine. I highly recommend Mark and both tours we took with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kristin Thanks for rating, you and your mother are so kind! Enjoy your further trip! Mark

I highly recommend Mark (Xiao Jun). He is very knowledgeable and organized, very punctual and flexible. He always consulted with us on our careabouts throughout the tour and had all the required tickets and transport arrangements ready upfront to ensure efficient use of tour time. We only need to reimburse our personal cost at the end of the day, which is great since we did not have to deal with cash payment every time. He handled everything very professionally so we had a great time during his tour.

Date: Jul 5/19

We were a party of 4 people and got the Water Town day tour with Mark. It was a beautiful city to visit and we had a wonderful time there. Mark is a very knowledgeable guide, very detailed oriented and planed our trip precisely how we wanted it. He picked up us sharp on time from the hotel, and gave us a complete explanation of the history of Shanghai and the water town on our way. At the city he helped us explore the beauties of this unique place. His English is beyond perfect.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sanaz Thanks for your perfect review, it gives me lots confidences, you and your friends are all very kind! Mark

Date: Jun 7/19

Mark is very deeply versed in the history of Tongli, the place Marco Polo put on the map as "the Venice of Asia." His excellent English and selection of an unassuming-looking local restaurant made a long drive owing to unexpected traffic well worth the effort. If possible, try to go early and avoid a public holiday to avoid the crowds.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for rating!

Mark was very knowledgeable about all the places he showed us. He was very helpful in every way and the suggested car for our visit was an exceptional idea, meaning that our day was organised to miss the queues. We enjoyed every minute of our visit and would highly recommend Mark.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Angela, without your cooperation, tour will not be successful, and thanks for giving this opportunity to enjoy Labor Day holiday together!

Mark as our tour guide was amazing. We felt like we hit the lottery having such a knowledgeable tour guide who was kind, fun, patient, flexible, great language skills, protective of us and was able to adjust the schedule so we were able to do more than we thought possible. He accompanied us to every activity and kept us informed of possibilities/options we could take. It was truly an amazing tip with a fabulous tour guide. Mark was born and raised in Shanghai Thanks Mark!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Suann Thanks for rating, hope you’ve brought lots good memories back home, and I wish jump higher and nicely together with all of you during your next trip to China!

Sometimes things can go wrong and having a tour guide who can make the changes and make things better than expected was "Mark." I Would pick him as my guide any day and I've arranged many trips for my family and travelled with many guides around the world. Suzhou was wonderful for our age group because we were never kept waiting. Our van was always waiting for us even when we had to change vans mid-trip. Our comfort and needs were priority with "Mark". He was always on. Thank you Mark! Aloha

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is always a pleasure to greet a friend from afar, when we met I thought I had been already a member of your group, thanks Paul, enjoy your further trip! Aloha
