My name is Michelle Gong and I have lived in Beijing for a long time. I am a trained, licensed and independent tour guide who offers tours of the city and other places in China. I frequently take individuals and small groups to places like Xian to see the famous Terracotta Army and other sites.
I specialize in working with individuals, small groups and those who prefer not to participate in large standardized tours.
To make your arrival as easy as possible, I can arrange airport meet-and-greets and transfers to local hotels as well as your hassle-free departure from Beijing.
I like people to see the real China and Beijing, so I try to organize tours that give you the opportunity to see the locals and not just other tourists.
I don’t take commissions from sellers, so I don’t deliver to factories for extended mandatory runs. If you want assistance with your purchases, I will try to offer you the best possible purchases.
In addition to guiding personalized tours and translating, I can also arrange Tai Chi classes, traditional massages, acupuncture and other experiences.
My rate is 100 RMB per hour for 1 or 2 people, or 700 RMB per day and 120 RMB per hour for 3 or 4 people. For business visitors, I can help you with translation and move around the city at 700 RMB per day.
My email address is [email protected], or you can call or text, WhatsApp and Wechat: (0086) 133 6616 6844
My tour guide license is registered by the Official Beijing Tourism Association, and to ensure customer satisfaction, my payment policy is to charge after the tour is over (in addition to prepayment for accommodation and transportation) . Customers don’t have to worry about paid services not being delivered. I have traveled abroad several times, love different cultures and do well with children, having a teenage son myself.
VERY IMPORTANT: Most tour guides in China have to supplement their income by taking guests to outlets offering bribes to the guide. My fees are slightly higher than many other guides, however, I do not include overpriced factories or other sales sites in my tours. I want you to see the real China, and if you decide to shop, my job is to see you get the best value at the best price.
