Inside school, I have been running a campus society called “Beijing Exploration” which provides free guiding services to all our foreign teachers and some of the coming visitors to our university. Over the years, we have been quite actively involved in many of the big events of the city; some have been reported by the local BTV (Beijing TV). All of the members of our organization were carefully selected from our school - Beijing Foreign Studies University - the best of its kind in China. We all have a thorough understanding of the city as we are all natives here. We all have been specially trained and are certificated by local travel authority.
Last year, some of us were selected as interpreters for the 11th China Wuqiao International Circus Festival. By chance I met and interpreted for the Cultural Minister from Egypt, which I still feel quite proud of. Our Beijing Tours are Personalized and Customized for you and your interests.
