Question: Could you give me some information about the tour guides?
Answer: All of our guides are certified by the national tourism administration. They are friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. They are skilled in organizing your trip and are fluent at communication. They can deal with all kinds of unexpected situations and help you avoid many difficulties.
Question: Do you arrange a guide to accompany us throughout the tour?
Answer: We usually arrange local guides for clients throughout the trip. The local guide will meet you at the airport, escort you to visit highlight spots and then see you off at the airport in each city. A national guide will be allocated for large groups, or for fewer people if required by special circumstances. He or she will accompany the group the whole time, traveling with them till the trip ends.

Question: Does the tour guide speak English?
Answer: Yes, we offer English-speaking guides. We also have guides who speak other languages such as German, French, Spanish, Japanese and Italian. We will try our best to meet your need if you have special language requirements.
Question: Will a guide pick us up at the airport (or railway station)? How will I know where to find the guide when I arrive?
Answer: Yes, if it is a guided tour, our guide will pick you up at the airport or railway station. If it is the self-service exploration, you need to find your own way to the hotel or downtown area, but we will give you suggestions on how to take taxi, shuttle bus or public bus.
For international flight arrival, the guide will wait for you outside the customs of the airport, holding a sign with your name on it, for domestic flight, the guide will meet you outside the baggage claim area. At the railway station, usually the guide will greet you on the platform right outside your rail car, holding a sign with your name on it, but at certain cities or during some peak periods, it is not allowed for people to enter the platform to welcome their friends, families or guests, so our guide can only wait for you at the exit of the station. You need to follow other passengers to go out of the station. Of course, we will offer the details to you once you take the train journey.

Will our guide help us handle the boarding card at the airport?
Answer: Yes, our guide will transfer you to the airport and help you get the boarding card there. He or she will bid farewell to you when you go through the security check-point.
Question: Will our guide help us find the seat on the train?
Answer: The tour guides are not always allowed to enter the train station. Whenever possible, they will escort you to board the train and find the seat. If it is not allowed, the guide will give you some suggestions, and then please follow the crowds to get on the train by yourself. The seat number is shown on the ticket and you need to keep the ticket well with you.
Question: How many hours per day will your guide be with me?
Answer: Our guide will be with you during the planned tour for the day. If the program is only a half day one, you will be on your own the rest of the day.
