Tour Guide Training – Expertise & Knowledge 

The approach and principles of our guide training is to advance expertise. Despite their knowledge about China and Chinese culture and rich experience in guiding, our tour guides still have a lot to learn and room for improvement. So our instructor Sunny puts forward some practical suggestions, by combining the feedbacks from our clients, as well as some problems from the cases. 

The Future of Tour Guide – to be a Scholar or Expert 

Sunny brings up the idea that our tour guides should become scholars with loads of knowledge, from about culture, history and traditions to local life and people, or become experts in a specific field, such as hiking, cycling and photography. Through these ways, we hope to help our customers to learn more, see more and discover under the skin of China. It will turn out to be an experience-rich travel in China.
