About Me

I went to college in Hangzhou, the “city of heaven.” I have been greeting tourists and leading them around Hangzhou since I was a sophomore, so I have a lot of experience leading people from many different countries. I first led tours to practice my English and connect with foreigners, but I quickly realized that I really enjoyed the job and was actually a pretty talented guide, so I decided to turn it into my career. I feel as though I’m not just a tour guide, but more like a local friend you are visiting for the first time, who is excited to show you around their hometown and show off their local traditions, culture, and favorite spots.

My Experiences

As a tour guide, I am adept at leading tours of Shanghai and nearby cities. I show people around popular destinations like Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou and some water towns. I build tailor-made itineraries according to my clients' interests and requirements, and share Chinese culture, history, and lifestyle with clients. My tours take a more relaxed style, and having fun is my #1 priority. I like to explain Chinese history and culture through funny anecdotes and memorable jokes, and explore at the pace that my clients set. I won’t ever rush you.

What I am best at is making your trip hassle-free, memorable and enjoyable. Please feel free to let me know if you have any requirements for your tour, I can always customize itineraries or adjust itineraries to meet your requirements and interests. I hope to see you in Shanghai :)
