"Harbinese, try to be helpful and considerate at every moment"
Hi, I am Lucy. Glad to meet you here. Harbin, known as the "Ice City" in northeastern China,attracts thousands of visitors from home and abroad each year. As a native, I have good knowledge and deep love for my hometown. All I want to do is to share the beauty of the city with you----the ice and snow in winter, the romantic Sun Island in summer as well as the western architecture. Maybe this is the very reason I register to be a tour guide." To help, to enjoy and to share" is my motto. If you want to visit the city without the bother of shopping stops, if you plan to explore very corner of the city according to your own itinerary,or if you hope to taste the specialties without spending too much, Lucy is your right choice.You will feel no regret!

Lucy W was our tour guide on our recent visit to Harbin with my wife, her parents and our two children aged 3 and 6. Lucy organised a car and driver for our stay and met us at the airport using this car. She had worked out an excellent and comprehensive itinerary for us of the major attractions of Harbin and the Snow and Ice Festival. Also she was very thoughtful and came well prepared with extra scarves, mittens, tissues ,etc in case we we needed them. She was very accommodating of the children's needs and guided us to good restaurants. She not only told us a brief history of Harbin but also some interesting and funny anecdotes about the city. Most importantly she speaks excellent English. Lucy is very friendly and always did exactly what she said she was going to do. We could rely on Lucy 100% of the time we where in Harbin. We count Lucy as one of our friends and would not hesitate to recommend her services.
Thanks for a great weekend Lucy.
I visited Harbin in Jan. 2013 from the US with my 11 year old son and my 75 year old father-in-law. My FIL speaks a bit of Mandarin so that helped us get around, but I really wanted to get a tour guide for our first day in Harbin to help us learn the ropes and to get us out to the main Ice Festival. We booked Lucy for one day and it was one of the best decisions we made on our trip. We learned a lot of local history on our tour and I didn't feel as bad about taking my son out of school to visit Harbin. Lucy was very knowledgeable and was willing to tailor the level of detail to our party. We went to St. Sophia and the central street early in the day and to the ice/snow parks at night. Getting a taxi is Harbin can be very difficult and having Lucy to help us arrange transportation was very valuable.
Also we just enjoyed having Lucy as part of our group. She was very pleasant to talk with and we all got to know each other pretty well during the course of the day. We were sad to say good buy at the end of the day and we will certainly ask for her help when we return to Harbin again. She also really help me and my son take care of my FIL. He has a tendency to wonder off or to be a little too brave crossing the street in traffic. Lucy stuck by his side the whole day and kept him out of trouble. She watched over him like a daughter and he was happy to talk with her and learn more about current life in China.
Lucy helped us get a great start to our trip. Overall Harbin far exceeded my expectations. Not only were the snow and ice festivals great, but there were also a lot of great things for my son to do. We enjoyed walking across the frozen river and there were lots of sledding runs and outdoor ice activities for both young and old. I was surprised how vibrant the center of the city was despite the cold. It seems like this could be a nice to place to visit in the summer also. Please contact me if you have questions.
My husband and I visited Harbin recently. We were keen to find a local guide who would be able to assist us in maximising the sights and sounds over our short stay. We were SO HAPPY to have found Lucy.
Prior to arriving in Harbin, I had done some of my own research and planning of the trip, I had a clear idea of what we wanted to see but I soon realised that I would need some local knowledge and the help with the language.
I contacted Lucy via email prior to the trip and she was very informative and generous with the information and itinerary planning. We had initially thought we would need Lucy for just a day, but am glad we decided to ask for her help for 2 whole days.
Harbin is a wonderful city but commuting around it can be difficult with a language barrier and time consuming especially in the harsh winter and if your stay is a short one.
If you have a short time in Harbin and want to see all the sights and learn about the history of the place, then Lucy is the person to have by your side ! Lucy planned an amazing itinerary for us and each day was spent to the max. with seeing and learning about the place. Lucy was very generous with her time and often insisted on staying with us until we were happy to call it a day. Her recommendations to food and things to do were spot on. She is a great communicator and her English is excellent. We had so much laughs together. We felt like we were seeing Harbin with a good friend rather than with a 'guide.'
Lucy also arranged for a private car for both days (at our request) and we were glad because our driver was excellent and the cost was extremely reasonable considering the dodgy taxi fares/traffic and waiting time for both days. Both Lucy and our diver were very accommodating and we can truly recommend them both to friends and family.
Thank you Lucy for a great time in Harbin. We will keep in touch and if you ever come to Melbourne, Australia, we hope we could show you around too !
