Hi my real name is Rob Koh and I am coming back into the freelance tour guiding scene after a 2 year hiatus. I was working in corporate and all I could think about during that time was how I was going to get back into tour guiding. So I'm back with my first love! As you can see from my previous reviews when I was active before, I am extremely knowledgeable, friendly and speak English very well.
Also to add to my resume: Winner of the Viator Top 10 Tour Guide Awards.
