Excellent guide, we had a very good day

Ben is an excellent guide. Our flight was delayed and he very patiently waited for us until we reached the meeting point. It helped us accommodate the schedule according to what we wanted to see due to the time we had lost.

Wonderful adventure.

Boa Vista, wonderful places. Guangzhou is a charm! A great city with a unique history.
