Fred Wang Wei and Alana were great hosts

They put together a special itinerary for me based on my interest in Zheng He maritime history as well as the transitions between the first and third Ming emperors. Fred is seriously knowledgeable as well as a polyglot - he catches various languages and cultures very easily. Overall one of the best tour teams I have come across.
Informative Tour

I had a fantastic day in Nanjing last week with my guide Fred, who was super friendly with excellent English skills and great information about the history and culture of his impressive home city. I was able to visit the sites as to my interest in one day including Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum, Ming tomb, City wall, Confucius temple and Xuanwu lake, which were all very scenic and full of interesting stories. The van was very comfortable, and driver was quite safe. Overall, it was an amazing experience full of education and fun. Highly recommended this private tour to all visiting Nanjing.
Day Tour of Nanjing

Fantastic tour with Ava today, perfect English and really engaging. Very flexible to our needs and happy to answer questions on anything...including just general life in China. Clean car, good driver, picked up early from hotel lobby and very efficient at picking us up at each stop on the tour. Never made lunch as we had filled up on breakfast in the morning so chose to carry on with the tour...however did pass the restaurant and looked really nice.

Overall a great tour, very slick, seen a lot in a short space of time, if you want to understand the history and culture of both Nanjing and China as a whole then would definitely recommend this tour.

We had an amazing tour visiting many different cultural points throughout the city. The guides were very flexible regarding our itinerary and made arrangements and ticket purchases on our behalf. Highly recommended!
Your wishes become true.

Fred waited for us in the hotel lobby. We reviewed our program, because the massacre museum is closed for update. During the taxi ride he updated us on the history. Via the downtown lake we climbed the Sun Yatsen Mausoleum. Afterwards we had a 5 dishes lunch at a local restaurant, which was tasty. In the afternoon we visited the big gate, before we descended to the Confucius Area. At the end we visited the education center of Confucius. We we’re brought on time to the Nanjing South Station. It was an unforgettable experience. Fred speaks really fluent English. The car was very comfortable
