About Me

I’m Jin and I’m a real Shanghai girl. I would love to show you around and tell you the secrets of my hometown. I have worked as a tour guide and interpreter since 2011. Before this job I worked as a secretary in a market research company and was responsible for organizing all the business trips for my colleagues. So, I have a lot of experience in organizing trips.


I mostly work in and around Shanghai, but in the past few years I’ve also worked in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai and Macau. So, if you need to visit different places in China, I will be the perfect guide for you. 


I offer the following services:


Trip Planning

Before you come to China I can help you make a travel plan according your needs and wishes. If you like, I can organize your trip by using my local knowledge to help you find the best offers. Or you can do this part yourself and let me know your plans.


Guiding Your Trip

When you come to China I can pick you up from the airport and guide you to your hotel. I can be your guide for the whole time and finally bring you back to the airport. So, you do not have to worry about getting to the right place. A lot of my customers say this gives them a comfortable feeling.


I can work for you as day time tour guide / interpreter. Pick you up from the hotel at 10am and then take you to all the places you wish to see in Shanghai. And if you like shopping I can be your shopping assistant too, bring you to the right places and teach you how to bargain with the local people. At 6 pm I will bring you back to your hotel. I charge 100 USD for 8 hours. We will travel with public transportation or taxi. If you prefer I can also arrange for a private car, but this will lead to extra cost.

I can also offer a combination of day time tour guide / interpreter and dinner companion. The day program is like above. But after the day program, in the evening I will show you Shanghai by night and I will bring you to one of the nicer restaurants and join you for a real nice Chinese dinner. I will bring you back to the hotel around midnight. I charge 150 USD for 14 hours.


Fair Assistant  

If the purpose of your visit is to go to one of the big fairs that are organised in Shanghai, I can help you get around. I have also worked as a fair assistant in Guangzhou and Shenzhen. I can help you find your way and I can help you as a translator so that you can easily talk with the local people that you meet. If you will have your own booth I can work in your booth and promote your product. I have worked several times in Canton fair and was an assistant in a lot of different exhibitions in Shanghai.  I charge 15 USD/hour or 100 USD for 8 hours.


Whatever service you choose it will be nice, friendly and honest. And ALWAYS WITH A BIG SMILE.  


Hope to see you soon in China!

    My husband and I had a 12 hour layover in Shanghai and hired Jin to be our tour guide. We have no regrets!! She was very responsive before we left the US and she was waiting for us right on time outside of customs. ...read more

    Jin was a wonderful tour guide for the 2 days I had to explore Shanghai. Before even leaving the US, she responded quickly to my email and even provided a suggested itinerary for us to hit all the main spots in Shanghai, as well as at ancient water town Zhujiajiao. She is so friendly and always made sure I was enjoying myself during my visit....read more

    I hired Jin for a work assignment that involved translating during face to face interviews and on the go with people in the street. Her English was very good and she managed this assignement perfectly. I also really enjoyed her bubbly personality and resourcefulness. She is hard working and friendly. Would definitely recommend her!
