Darren was our tour guide for Shanghai and was a wonderful guide - full of enthusiasm and information, but more importantly just very easy to spend time with while touring Shanghai. We coordinated our tour on line before arriving in China and he was very accommodating and helpful. Darren met us at the train station and had the day very organized in accordance with what we had discussed via email in advance. I would highly recommend Darren as a tour guide and would certainly use him again. A++

I really enjoyed my tour with Darren and so did my two friends. We were three women in our 50s and 60s. Darren made the tour fun and easy. He brought us to interesting places and explained everything along the way. He has a sweet and approachable personality and I would HIGHLY recommend him.

There was a lot of last minute confusion with Chinese authorities over when we would be allowed off the ship to take the long taxi ride into downtown Shanghai to meet Darren--all of which he anticipated. Darren gave us an excellent tour of Yuan Gardens and the Jade Buddha Temple, he had researched vegetarian restaurants for us, and took us for a stroll at dusk along the Bund. Aside from the drizzling kind of grey weather, we had a good visit to Shanghai. Thanks, Darren!

We found Darren to be an amazing guide. his local knowledge and expertise about Shanghai was great and he really knows the history, dates etc. We took cabs and the subway on our tour, mostly cabs as they are cheap and easy in Shanghai. Darren had the day planned out in advance which made for a better day, as little time was wasted. we wanted to go to more unusual places like the seafood market, insect and bird market and local street vendors and Darren knew them all. I would definitely recommend him!

Tour: Evening of Shanghai& Huangpu River Cruise, Shanghai, Shanghai, China
Date: Jul 18/13

Darren-san is one of the best guides we have had the pleasure of working with. Even though our hotel messed up our room reservation, he was standing by with our driver to provide the best tour possible. The highlight of the evening was the riverboat cruise viewing the riverside building which were night lighted - fantastic! And then to the pubs and the Rolls Royce dealership...We will definitely request Darren on our next journey to Shanghai. Shei-shei!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's my pleasure to be your guide that day, especially, to share with you previous experiece in China 1980s, thank you, Clarke!
