    With a full 8-hr tour it could be a hit or a miss & I'm glad to have Josh Rice as my private guide. He's such a FUN guy to be around so, it was a bonus for the entire trip! He showed up on time, attentive with the details and resourceful (i.e. packed an extra umbrella, powerbank for my mobile, even brought his camera since he knows I'm into photography). There were some missed because apparently he hasn't done this tour before and he doesn't speaks Mandarin - whereas the places we visited were in rural areas so Mandarin speaking guide should be mandatory. But I really appreciated the effort he made by doing a thorough research and kept me well informed on the options l have. He also brought a local friend along for ease of communications. All in all it was a sucessfull day!
