Spending New Years in Shanghai with friends both local and from abroad was only accentuated by Harrison's guidance. Not only does Harris know the city like the back of his hand but he will give you the historic significance of every corner of it. His knowledge was both impressive and non filtered as he will educate you on some of the lesser known facts about Chinese history and the controversial party changes. I especially appreciated his restaurant recommendations as we had an amazing meal where ever visited and none of which were tourists traps with half the taste at 2x's the price. I also can vouch for Harris in the Markets of China as this guy can haggle with the best of them and get you the best price for whatever trinket your heart desires. In my experience this is a skill lacking in most guides and being from NYC myself, I can usually do a better job of negotiating. Not so in this case as "Ice Water" runs through this mans veins as he holds firm when bargaining on your behalf! Great experiences were had and the fact that I was there to work is almost forgotten, as when looking back all I remember is how good of a time it was.
We loved Harris!
Harris helped us greatly while we were in Shanghai. We were arriving by train and going to an apartment that was not a well-known spot. He arranged a driver to pick us up and we had no problems at all. The same driver, arranged by Harris, took us about 45 minutes out of the city to the tennis center where we watched the Shanghai Open. Two days in a row Harris came to our hotel and walked us around the city, very knowledgeable and conversant about China and the people. His English is excellent and he made our stay in Shanghai very enjoyable.
My wife and I recently had the opportunity to spend two full-day tours in Shanghai and Hangzhou with Harris. We had a wonderful time. Harris is a very competent guide with a thorough knowledge of the area. He is articulate and well-educated with a very flexible approach to each tour. We have traveled often, in the past, using private tour guide services and we can readily attest that Harris is the best, by far, of others we have used.
We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great tour of Shanghai or Hangzhou.
