For the past three years (2007-9) he has acted as the guide for the Oxbridge alumni tours in Kashgar, and has been much valued and liked by everyone on the tours. His comprehension of the city and countryside, of the historical sites of and the future plans for Kashgar are extensive, and even late in the day he does not tire of enthusiasm in communicating his knowledge. His selection of the finest and most interesting restaurants, as well as his attention to the details of service at our hotel has been outstanding and very much appreciated. As much as is possible on a group tour he has always sought to find a particular place or object that someone on the tour has been looking for. Imam also has a good understanding of the procedures at all the border points around Kashgar, and has always ensured that our groups have been afforded the most expeditious passage. Finally, as a tour leader, I would like to thank him publically for his cooperation and assistance in making those tours a success.
