Dear visitors, I'm Sichuan freelance guide Haba Yefei, I have been guiding in Sichuan, Yunnan and east Tibet since July 2007.
Book a tour with Yefei
I was born and grew up in a small town surrounded by big mountains until I went to high school at the age of 15, and then went to Xiamen University when I was 18, where I got the Bachelor’s degree in Tourisme management. I’m the only people in the class still guiding, I love my job, and quite proud of what I’m doing. I’m a big fan of panda and adore nature, love meeting and serving visitors from all over the world.
I used to work for a travel company for 2 years. Be honest, I wasn’t always happy working there, got no paid from the travel agent, I had to take clients to many contracted shops, where tour guides got shopping commission as the main income. I quitted the job at the 3rd year, and started my own business with the help of internet. My business is increasing year by year, although sometimes I’m too busy to guide more tours, but I have never thought of opening a travel company, sitting in an air-conditioned office and dealing with clients’ emails, hiring other tour guides to work for me as many experienced travel guides will do. I wish more and more guides in China will find their own clients through internet and work with dignity. Without a middle man, I can directly contact my clients, getting to know more about their needs before meeting each other, their expectation, what they like and dislike, their physical conditions, I want to take people to the right places where they will find most interesting, and have a best experience. Based on my experience, I suggest visitors not only visit the popular tourists attractions, but also visit some off beaten path if your time permits. The Sichuan/Chengdu is quite a big province/city, very diversity both in culture and nature scenery.
I have to admit that I’m not very interested in taking people to the newly built Jinli “old” street or recently rebuilt Kuanzhai Alley, but I’m never bored of going to visit Pandas, watching them growing up each time is one of my hobbies. There are some pretty parks in Chengdu down town where you can see authentic Chengdu cultures and relaxing life style. As Chengdu is bordered to Tibetan area in the west, the scenery there is breath taking.
I own a van(7seats) and hire a professional driver(Mr.Ho), we are providing customer-centric high quality tours to small groups. We have never taken clients to unnecessary shops, and we both believe the satisfied smile from our customers is the best reward to our work.
Tour fare paid at the end of the tour is OK, deposit is unnecessary. For the quotation of my tours, they are reasonable price(not only for westerners),bug given there will be 2 people (an English speaking tour+ a professional driver) plus a spacious MPV(an alternative car when the MPV leaves for frequent 4s maintenance), the price maybe not a small amount for many tourists with a budget, although I really wish I could assist every visitors to Chengdu. For instance, for one day tour of Panda Sanctuary+ city sightseeing, I charge 1000Yuan including tour guide, driver and van(fuel, toll fee also covered). While some youth hostels in Chengdu provide half day panda tours at the price of 98Yuan/PP, the public transportation is very cheap and mostly efficient in Chengdu, which is quite helpful for independent travelers. So Chengdu/Sichuan is really a hospitable city where each one can easily find a suitable way while traveling here.
I’m guiding outdoors most of the days, and travel to remote Tibetan area frequently, internet is inaccessible in some of the places, so I’m not always able to reply email promptly.
