If you are planning a trip for China and you are not sure that what places do you need to visit and if you do not know much about the famous attraction in China then you can take the help of a Tour Guide. They will easily guide you to the popular tourist attractions and help you to understand the history of those attractions. You will also be aware about the different culture and practices of China.
China has thousands of well trained and licensed tour guides. Some of them are librarians, professors or teacher, working as a part timer. But, they all require passing a strict examination for qualifying for working as a tour guide in china. So, you do not need to worry about the quality of the tour guide that you are taking with you.
The travel companies of China have been divided into three classes. First class can work directly with the foreign tour operators. The tour guides working for this particular class are very much experienced. The English language is the first and foremost foreign language spoken by these tour guides. They work according to the pre-arranged schedule which is arranged by the employer.
The tour guides are generally less qualified in the less developed areas like along the Silk Road, Tibet and in some parts of Sichuan and Yunnan than those who are working in the East. This difference is mainly in the quality of the spoken English.
You can consult your tour operator from where you have bought the tour package and they will provide you the guide service. If you have not consulted any tour operator then you can avail this facility from any tour operator after reaching china. The guide assigned to you will speak your nominated language and will meet you at the airport. He will deliver you to the hotel and accompany you on your tour in that particular city. You will get different guide in different city as they will not fly or take train or bus with you.
