Great tour!

Our group of 4 visited Guangzhou in November and our guide was Ben. He had a very friendly attitude and our tour went smoothly. He was very knowledgeable and he also helped us with suggestions for other sights to visit in the city for the rest of our trip.

We had a great time and I highly recommend this tour!
Great experience, highly recommended

This trip is truly memorable with great views of the lights of Guangzhou. The private transfer makes it very easy for non-Chinese speaking visitors.
Good service from a professional company

I would like to start by saying that I think Silk Road is a professionaly run operator.
The vehicle transfer arrived on time in a modern ( SUV ) vehicle. The driver was courteous and displayed care in his driving. I can not speak highly enough of the guide, ( Yubei, this is my phonetic spelling of her name ) was friendly, chatty, informative and engaging and it was her contribution that made the evening an enjoyable and memorable occasion.
The problem is the price at $AUS180 per head for two, and considering the price doesn't include any drinks or snacks, it is a bit pricey for an event that takes approximately one hour twenty minutes.
I can offer as a comparison a tour we did in Hong Kong with Gray Line.
This tour also had Hotel transfer with tour guide and included among other things;
a) visit to Man Mo temple
b) ride on the Peak Tram
c) Dim Sum lunch
d) visit to Stanley Market
All at a cost of $AUS146 per head for two.
Having said that, I will say again that the Pearl River cruise was an enjoyable experience, and offer thanks to the staff we met.
I understand that as a Tourist. no matter where you go in the world, their is a cost associated with being a tourist but seeking value for money is not a crime.
I feel that if they knocked, say $80 off this particular tour, I could easily give it a 5 star rating.
