So, whether you're looking for someone to help you plan an upcoming trip, or just ideas for where to go next, read on: it's all here.
GUY RUBIN - CHINA Years as agent: 4. Top tip: "Dunhuang, an oasis town along the Silk Road - see the ancient murals in the nearby Mogao Caves (one of China's least well known sites) and early portions of the Great Wall. Or, ride a camel in the Mingsha sand dunes."
