My wife and I had the pleasure to spend 12 days in Shanghai with Harris as our guide. He is a very pleasant chap, extremely knowledgeable about Chinese culture and history, and his English is flawless. Thanks to him, we learned, and saw, a lot, particularly outside the beaten paths. I absolutely recommend him.

To Whom it May Concern;

During our stay in Shanghai, we asked Harris Gu to be our private guide for a day.

Harris was a delight. He arranged safe, comfortable transportation. He communicated well with us.

He made sure that we were able to do everything that we wanted to do, in an organized way.

He never rushed us and always made sure that all of our needs were met.

Harris Gu is professional, organized, and a pleasure to be around.

Thank You,

Jamie ,Melanie,Eddie,Heather from Florida

Harris was so very helpful, even before we arrived in Shanghai. He suggested we wait at the airport train station until the hour when the MAGLEV train has it's speed restriction removed, and we could experience traveling at 432 ks per hour !! Good start !

Harris quickly discovered our likes and dislikes, taking us to out of the way places, that even an adventurous pair like us, would never have found. Also his command of English was extremely good, making us feel very comfortable asking all sorts of questions.

Without hesitation we recommend Harris to anyone wanting to discover the essence of Shanghai, and we will definitely contact him upon our return to China. We feel we have a very able "man on the ground" who could deal with any situation.

My wife and I stayed in Hangzhou for giving a lecture at a congress and we had one day for sightseeing. We had been to Hangzhou before and got Harris as our guide. Expecting not very much, we were deeply impressed at the end of the day by his profound knowledge on history, culture and politics and we liked his cautious and distinguished attitude very much. It is good to know that he covers Shanghai as well as the Hangzhou area.
Next time in the area we'll know whom to contact!

Traveled to Shanghai with a group of 13, in June 2013 and we had the privilege of engaging Harris as our guide. Harris was an absolute champion and helped to make our stay in Shanghai a fantastic experience. I gathered we had chosen wisely when the email arrangements were well written and informative, everything was easy. Harris helped us to purchase train tickets on the bullet train to Beijing, again no problem. We used Harris for three days, including pick up with a bus from the Cruise Terminal out of town, to the drop off at the train station when we left for Beijing. Had some great food experiences in local restaurants, surprisingly in shopping centres where we were the only western people, experiences because we were with Harris in restaurants that you would never know about without Harris. With a large group, it can be difficult making everyone happy, but Harris had no problems keeping our group entertained, even changing plans at the last minute to suit some members of our group. Harris deserves all the great reviews posted on Tripadvisor. Do yourself a big favour, make sure you ask Harris to be your personal guide in Shanghai, you won't regret it.
