Peter made it to the shortlist of our Tour Leader Awards this year and it's not surprising, judging by the below comments we've received from those who have travelled with him in his home country of China...
"Peter anticipated problems and was relaxed and good humoured throughout. Funny and well informed, one of the best tour leaders I've had!"
"Great knowledge and attentiveness. Helpful and informative. Fantastic - incredibly courteous and always made group feel safe. Perfect."
"Peter was very friendly and knowledgeable. An informative tour leader. Good people skills. Provided good knowledge and info. Not only about where we were but about China as a whole. Was always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure group members were having the best possible experience. Integrated the group well."
"Very good. His help at meal times allowed us to enjoy Chinese food. Amusing. Outstanding - worked hard with all of the group. The best I have met on my travels - went out of his way to lend a hand and I was impressed by his English and local knowledge."
