We used LiMing (Selina) for a 10 day photography trip to China. Her translation skills are excellent. But not just a translator, on our 10 day trip she quickly became an important part of our group. LiMing was also very proactive in watching and listening what was happening and on more than one occasion stepped in to resolve and sooth problems without being asked. She is an intelligent, confident, kind and natural person to be around and we had lots of fun socialising in the evenings. LiMing is highly recommended.
I was in China for business and I was very glad to have such an experienced interpreter by my side. Selina's English was excellent! She even understood my New York slang! Besides being a great interpreter, Selina is a very kind and intelligent person. I can't thank her enough for all her help during my trip, from being the best organizer, helping me find the right factories and translating during all meetings! Thanks to Selina, my trip was a great success and I'm looking forward to working with her in the near future again!
Thank you David very much David. It was a great honor and pleasure to work with you. You are really easy going. Looking forward to seeing you again very soon.Best regards,Selina
Selina was incredibly trustworthy, helpful & knowledgeable about my work & industry and was able to connect me with contacts in Xiamen, help further my business & ensure I was getting the best business relationship for the contract I was seeking a supplier for. I have since used Selina again for my following trip and I have no doubt I will utilise Selina's communication skills again when I am in China. I would recommend anyone who is new and unsure of the Chinese market to Selina in full confidence. Selina's english was more than proficient, she has an intelligent nature & is great to be around. Selina has continued to be of great help to me whilst I am back in Australia and happily goes an extra mile.
Thank you Selina - see you again soon!
Thank you Mark.It was really fun working with you. I really like your humor, as much as I like English chocolates you brought. 😀 Looking forward to seeing you again very soon. Best regards,Selina Chen
Selina has been extremely helpful in organising a ten days tour in China starting with Xihan, then Lhassa followed by Chengdu, a three days cruise on the Yangtze River and ending in Shanghai. Selina managed to find the right guide at each of our destination which allowed us to have a good insight of local culture. I can only recommend her as an excellent interpreter and organiser, always ready to proactively address our wishes.
Dear Robert,Thank you so much for the unforgettable trip. I have seen and experienced so much during the 10 day trip and had so much fun. I must be the luckiest interpreter to have got such an opportunity to join with you in this tour around China. Hope next year when you come back to China, I will have another opportunity to join.All the best to your family and business. Best regards,Selina
I am the Deputy Head of Delegation for the USA Team. I hired Selina for 3 days to act as my interpreter for business with the Jinjiang Government who will be hosting two large international Sports Events in 2019 and 2020.
I have traveled to 72 countries and she has been the most professionally talented person I have ever worked with. She is a smart, reliable, honest, hard worker, and her knowledge of the English language is fantastic.
I will be making many future trips to China and will be asking her to assist me with each of my future visits
Last week I visited a long-time friend of mine, currently working and living in Xiamen, who recommended me to visit the Hakka tulous in the area. Having read her suggested tour itinerary, I contacted Selina through her website and was very pleased she would be available as my private tour guide on the only day my travel plans allowed for. Tour details were easily worked out via e-mail and whatsapp. Lucky with the weather and being kind of off-season I can only say the tour itself was fantastic with Selina being very helpful, well-spoken in English and, most of all, very good company!
During our 2 day stop over in Xiamen, Selina has been an amazing guide for our family. The initial contact over email was easy, professional and Selina was responsive to all our questions. From the moment we met, it was great and because of Selina we made the most of our short stay in China. We've been to the earthen buildings (1 day) and to Xiamen (1 day) and Selina explained everything, took us to the places we wanted to see, advised us, etc. Her English is perfect, Selina is reliable and she was eager to guide us to the nice places. Selina was easygoing with our young kids, overcoming the language barrier (our kids don't speak English) with jokes, teaching Chinese words and inviting them to try, taste, etc. We were very happy with Selina as our guide, I would definitely book her again and highly recommend her.
My family was in Xiamen for a week before heading up to Putian for a wedding. I contacted Selina a couple weeks before arriving to schedule a 2-Day trip to see the famous Fujian Tulou houses. She was very responsive to all my emails and questions and was able to provide an itemized quote for her services, a car and driver, tickets to attractions, food, and 1 nights stay in a Tulou house. She met us at our hotel in Xiamen with the driver and then we headed out to the countryside. Her English is very good and we liked her calm demeanor. The tour was awesome and the expenses were pretty much exactly what she had quoted. Highly recommended.
My wife and I visited Xiamen during our cruise with Royal Caribbean “Ovation of the Seas” in June. Since shore excursions with the ship are pretty expensive we decided to book Selina as our private tour guide to show us some highlights of Xiamen and the island of Gulangyu.
Selina is a great tour guide. She took care of everything and was very informative and helpful – in a country where you can not read and understand anything (unless you are or speak Chinese ). Several weeks before our cruise, we had plenty of contact via e-mail and Whatsapp and we worked out a plan for our limited time we had in Xiamen.
As promised she was waiting outside the ship holding a sign with our name. She took care of the ferry tickets and skipping the lines and bypassing the Sunday crowds and brought us to Gulangyu very quickly. There she organized a golf cart that transported us over the island. Piano museum and Shuzhuang was a nice place to visit – she also explained the history of that place.
Back in Xiamen we visited a nice authentic Chinese restaurant, she helped us with money exchange and we went out geocaching. Nanputuo temple also was an impressive place, before we headed back to the cruise ship in the afternoon.
We can absolutely recommend Selina as a private tour guide for cruise ship shore excursions. She’s very reliable, helpful and uncomplicated. Thanks again for showing us round.
5 stars is not enough for this guide. We booked her last minute on a recommendation of another guide from another city. We had a pretty extensive trip. She was awesome! She did all that we wanted to do. She made a game plan of what to do every day and she patiently waited as we shopped til we dropped. We were a bunch of girls so shopping is a big deal. She also took us to some local markets per our request and we got some really great authentic food. Her English is also really great so it was easy for me to understand her as I’m a little hard of hearing. She also was helpful when it was time to barter. We had an absolute blast with her and she was fun and put up with us with a smile. We hope to see her again some day soon.
