About Me

Hello, everyone, welcome to Shanghai! My name is Melody, a freelance tour guide and interpreter. Last year after obtaining my Master's Degree from a prestigious UK university, I decided to return to China and start this business. I passed the China tour guide exam, got the license and managed to connect with some local suppliers (hotels, car rental providers, travel service, specialty shops, etc). With all the related knowledge, skills and experience, I was able to receive many positive feedbacks from my previous clients. I know I was never that perfect but I suppose I could rather attribute their satisfaction to my attitude --- not only enthusiasm but also sincerity.  I believe honesty is the key to business success, and this has always encouraged me to keep up with the wholehearted service. Travel with me, and all you will need to do is enjoy all the amazing things Shanghai and East China have to offer!

My services include:

  • Travel Consulting - help you plan and prepare for a wonderful tour

  • Tour Guiding - accompany you to attractions in and around Shanghai (Suzhou, Hangzhou, Wuxi, etc.)

  • Car Rental - book a car&chauffeur service for airport pickup/sendoff and the tour

  • Hotel Reservation - help you book a nice centrally-located hotel based on your budget

  • Ticket Booking - help you book flight tickets, train tickets, evening show tickets, etc.

  • Shopping Assistance - find non-tourist-only shopping places for souvenirs and specialtylocal products where you get good bargains

  • Speical Activities - arrange a homestyle cooking class, mandarin lesson, Chinese massage, traditional game experience, lecture on TraditionalChinese Medicine (TCM), etc. as requested

My service charge is 400RMB/day (8 hours). Book now, pay later!

    We booked a last minute tour with Melody today.  She was available and did a great job taking us around getting to know the center of Shanghai or the modern Shanghai.  We chose to use public transportation so that we could be with the people and get to know what it was like to be with the people....read more

    Following a business trip to Beijing, I had the pleasure of visiting Shanghai for the first time. Thanks to a TripAdvisor review, I discovered Melody and I am very grateful that I hired her to guide me. During 3 1/2 days, we saw the wonderful sights in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Tongli. I enjoyed Melody's understanding of the history of the various attractions and her insights into life in modern day Shanghai....read more

    My first trip to China was an outstanding success thanks to having Melody’s help for 2 days, and as a result I had a very enjoyable time in Shanghai & Hangzhou.

    I guess many people go for big group tours to keep the price down. I always thought private tours were too expensive until I used Melody as our tour guide. The cost of her services were excellent value, she also could get you many additional benefits that you couldn’t easily get on your own; her local knowledge was priceless, she knew the right places to go and the right people to see....read more
