I was born here and I am still around. I saw Shanghai growing into the big metropole that it is now.
My Personal life:
As I said, my roots are in Shanghai, so I know my way around in here. But in addition to this, I also travelled all over China working as a personal assistant, tour guide or interpreter. In 2014, I was for the first time outside China. I spent 2 months in France and also visited Spain, Portugal, Germany and Belgium. In 2015 I also lived for some months in Paris, before I moved to Macau. In 2017 I returned to Shanghai. As a result of my stay outside China, I have gained some experience in Western world and therefore I have a good insight and understanding of the differences between Western and Chinese cultures. This insight I use to help foreign visitors to find their way in Shanghai and to cope with cultural differences that are undeniable there.
My work experiences:
Before I started to work as guide and interpreter, I worked in the sales department of a big German company in Shanghai. I also worked as secretary for a Marketing Research company. Since 2010 I worked as personal assistant, tour guide and interpreter.
My offer for you:
People who know me say that I am an honest and reliable person who likes to take care of things. They call me an easy-going person. I like to organize life, but in addition I am also good in dealing with unexpected situations. It is especially this quality that is very useful in my work for TourByLocals and being a guide and assistant for you. I will help you set up a tailor made tour according to your wishes. And while you are in China, I help you as a private guide to find your way, so that you do not have to worry but enjoy your holiday or focus on your business.
And finally and very important, I always offer my service with a smile.
