Get to know the person behind the tour

Jens S.

Chengdu, Sichuan, China

I am a very sunny and helpful person. I graduated from Sichuan Foreign Studies University.

My major is German. I can speak German and English fluently, and of course, Chinese.

Now, I have been work as a tour guide for 6 years so I have a lot of work experience. Apart from regular sightseeing routes, I often go hiking with people in the mountains or sitting in RVs driving through canyons and crossing rivers.

In 2013, I was appointed by the China National Tourism Administration to be a tour guide in Tibet for a year, and the happy time gave me a life long memory. The reason for choosing the tourism industry is to hope that through my efforts to bring happiness to others, and ultimately bring happiness to myself.

The most important thing about traveling is to find out that there is a joke saying: "Traveling is to go from a place where you are tired to a place where others are tired. " And I think that travel is to look at life from a different angle, to see how others treat life, and these lifestyles will inspire us. Make you feel incredible, you can treat life like this。
Chengdu is a city full of magic. After thousands of years of brewing, today, although the city is full of fast-paced life, Somewhere here, there is no shortage of teahouses, ears, mahjong, and traces of slow life in the old days. Like other ancient Chinese cities, Chengdu is a quite old city, so long that you can't count how many dynasties like the Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties has Chengdu gone through.

But this old in Chengdu has its very lovely side, whether it is the playful Sichuan dialect, the mahjong mahjong, or the green tea that is held by the "tea boat. " These elements of life are like the old man who walks in an alley, squinting, carrying his hands, sticking to the Chinese tradition, stubborn and cute.

Obviously Chengdu also has a dynamic side. The young people here work diligently, but they never forget to enjoy life. On the weekends, if you walk into a hot pot restaurant, firstly the fragrance came from the air. then what you see is a scene of fiery red life. When the Mongols came to Sichuan, they brought war and
also hot pot. Unexpectedly, this typical Mongolian cooking method has been transformed by the Sichuanese during the long history. We use the white pepper from the Western Regions, the red pepper from South America, and the local well salt and Sichuan pepper to make the unique flavor of Chuanwei Hot Pot.

For locals, the hot pot restaurant is not a restaurant, but more like a coffee shop. Here, people spend a lot of time socializing here, and hot pot is the bridge of communication.

I very much hope that you will give me the opportunity to let me lead you through the great rivers and mountains of China and appreciate our brilliant and splendid culture. In particular, you will also feel my unique personality charm when traveling with me. I hope to have a good time with you in China.
