My name is Mary.
I am an official tour guide who has the guide certificate issued by the Beijing government. I used to be an English teacher in a primary school, I love children and l like teaching too, but my hobby is travelling. I like to travel and explore so much, and that was why I stopped teaching to be a guide many years ago. I have been many places in the world with my Chinese groups, such as the UK, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Andorra, Russia, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Japan, Thailand, ect. Every time I get lot of new experience, which is so fun!
I have been a tour guide since 2005, I like my job so much! China is one of the four ancient civilizations, and I am proud of the great and profound culture of my country, but I know every country has its own unique and excellent culture. I am really happy to share my knowledge to my clients, and same time I learn lot of things from my clients too!

A Recent Review of this guide
Mary did a 2 day tour of the Great Wall, Summer Palace, Acrobat Show, pandas and Houtong for me, my husband, our 2 and 4 year old daughters, and my father. It was great! She handled transportation and every detail for us, which was very important since we couldn't speak the language or read most signs. She was wonderful with my little girls (they kept asking for her for the remainder of the trip) and my elderly father (he pulled a muscle the first day and she helped us find a cane and held his arm).
