Charming Silk Road Tour in China
Charming Silk Road Tour in China
I graduated from Foreign Language University of Xi'an in 2002. I worked in a Museum from 2003 to 2005 as an English-language docent. I passed the tourism examination and received the tour guide certification at the end of 2005. Since 2006, I have served as an English-language guide for foreign tourist groups.
While working at the Yang Pass Museum , I participated in the reception for Henry
Kissinger, the former U.S. Secretary of State. I also participated in the visit of an
important official from the U.S. Senate and guided World Bank officials.
While working as a tour guide, I met ambassadors from Australia, Canada,
Iceland, Malta, and Portugal to China. In 2008, I supported a group of famous
singers and movie stars, led by Olivia Newton John. In that same year, I also
guided a special group tour for the total eclipse of the sun. In August 2013, I
was honoured to entertain Zoltan Somogyi, Executive Director of UNWTO, during
the Sixth International Silk Road Tourism Conference being held at Dunhuang. In
2016, I was honoured to guide VIPs invited for the First Silk Road International
Cultural Expo, an event to be held annually. I also have guided many groups from
various tourist companies, such as China Holidays, China Tours, Indochina, and
I love being a tourist guide as well as travelling regularly. I am proud to be
an English-speaking guide in China and am confident in my English-speaking
skills. I demonstrate flexibility in working with different types of group,
regardless of size. I treat all of my foreign guests as if they were VIPs. I
manage to balance the differences within each group. I have also learned to use
Western-style humour to help to bring the group together.
Besides good English oral skills, I have acquired important and relevant working
experience during my career as a guide, I have been to numerous cities on
China's main Silk Road, including Xi'an, Tianshui, Lanzhou, Xiahe,Tongren,Xining,Wuwei, Zhangye, Jia
Yuguan,Dunhuang, Turpan, Urumqi, Kuqa, Yarkent, Hotan, Kashgar, and Tashkurgan.
I would appreciate the chance to guide your group. Thank you!

I contacted Robin over the e-mail and later Whatsapp and his replies were reasonably fast. He organised a day trip from Urumqi to Turpan in a private car for me and my girlfriend, putting together a good itinerary with places to visit.
He couldn't do the trip himself but he organised a local driver (the driver didn't speak English but I can't say that was a problem).
Overall - easy, professional, everything as agreed.

I saw this information through this web, and I contact him directly by wechat. His response is really fast and he help us to arrange our trip in Zhangye. He also gave us a good information regarding to the trip. We went there during spring festival, but he gave his time to help us for the whole trip.
You also can arrange by yourself and custom as you needed. He will help you for sure. He is really nice and good advisors as a travel planner.
