I was apprehensive of my layover tour of Guangzhuo with Janvi at first; I had heard mixed opinions on how easy it was to get a travellers visa, that Guangzhuo wasn't a very exciting city to visit, and that the handful of sights worth seeing...More

I am seriously not sure how Janvi got his 5 stars reviews. The tour he conducted are quite basic - bringing you to the city sights with some old photos and pre-memorized scripts. He is polite but hardly engaging, not knowledgeable about the history of...More

If you want to get a great peek into the city, both contemporary life and the history of the area, Janvi delivers. I’m really pleased that I decided to take a punt with my one day off in a week of visiting Guangzhou for work.

I brought my elderly parents for an off-the-beaten-path experience with Janvi. Our first day had us started the day at noon. We went on the Sai Kwan district tour. It was extremely eye opening to see parts of the town less known for tourists. We...More

We only had one day to tour Guangzhou, and considered a driving tour—but are so glad we went with Janvi’s walking tour into the heart of this fascinating city. Cantonese food, the Cantonese language—-it all originated from this part of Asia. And with massive skyscrapers...More

Janvi is everything I hoped for and more in a tour guide. Punctual, organised, knowledgable, outgoing, ambitious, honest. We did everything by public transport, so I really got a flavour of the city - ferry, taxi, subway. I loved all of the experiences he organised,...More
