I visited the water town Zhujiajiao (charming!) with Mr Troy and he was fantastic. He was my third guide this trip. He was the most professional, most knowledgeable, and most appropriate. He knows his history and his way around. He listened to my interests and made them appear without my asking. And sometimes, people get tired of talking about China and TROY knows his American pop culture too. The car was immaculate also. I had a great time and was well taken care of.

Jane my tour guide was super friendly and fun. She was fluent in English, was on time, explained things well. Joe private chauffeur made travel easy and efficient and no wait time.
