Hi, this is Xaq, pronounced like Zack. I was born and raised in Guangzhou, and so I am very familiar with Guangzhou attractions, Guangzhou culture, history, food, places that not many people know, and about local people's life here. I can give you advice and travel tips as well. I have been providing my services to foreigners in Guangzhou on a part-time basis for 6 years. In addition to my tours I could give you some suggestions about hotel conditions, locations, services, whether the staff speak English when you choose a hotel. I can pick you up at the Airport or Train Station so you wont feel nervous if this is your first time to Guangzhou and don't know much about Chinese language. I could also be your shopping assistant or assistant of living in Guangzhou, such as Guangzhou local food, supermarket, open markets, electrical appliances, where to go for nightlife, theaters etc. I would be glad to be your tour guide in Guangzhou, contact me if you have questions or need any help :)

Xaq is very knowledgeable on dates and locations. Having a driver was super ideal. The driver picked us up at the end of each location and dropped me off at the end. Xaq sent itinerary ahead of time and allowed changes which was nice. Speaker...More
