Hi my wife and I are travelling to HK and have a 1day visa for China, we will arrive by train and would like further details on arranging a guide/translator to show us Foshan, IP Man museum and any other martial art related locations and museums. We''d like assistance from Guangzhou train station throughout the day and back on the train to HK same day. We''d like to fit in as much as possible so a guide would be a huge help. Any details and prices you could provide would be appreciated, kind regards Mik
Hi Mik, we can arrange the tour guide and car with driver for you. Please kindly advise the exact date you need it. Then I will quote the price, okay? Whitney Liao replied on 2013-03-12

We are arriving in Foshan on the 11th July. Is it possible to hire a guide-translator-driver who will take us to all upfront arranged meetings that we have made. The dates in question are 12th,13th,16th and 17th July.Kind regards,Claudia
Hi, the fee for guide service (not the professional interpreter) is US$100 per day and the driver with 8-seat car is US$192 per day. Their working time is 8 hrs per day. If exceed, extra fee is required. The price includes guide and driver’s meal but exclude the entrance fee of the meeting. Christy Luo replied on 2012-07-02

I would like to see what your price and itinerary would be for a guide in Foshan.The date would be for Tuesday, June 12. We already have reservations at the Swissotel in Foshan, and would need the guide to meet us there in the morning, then take us around Foshan. I am particularly interested in the “Ip Man Museum” (teacher of Bruce Lee, teacher of Wing Chun Kung Fu). Other sites you have mentioned before are:Ancient Nanfeng Kiln, Liang Garden, Foshan Ancestral Temple and Wong Fei-hung Memorial Hall (or anything else they would recommend).The guide at the end of the day should take us to the subway or bus back to Guangzhou. We can arrange breakfast ourselves, unless the guide company can recommend some special local food to eat for breakfast. The tour company will arrange lunch. Dinner- I think we will do on the way to Guangzhou (again, unless they know someplace special).I hope all of this is clear, if not, please let me know.
I am a professional interpreter and sourcing agent in Foshan & Guangzhou cities. Please visit my web site www.procurementchina.weebly.com, and discuss more in details about your trip. guest replied on 2013-02-27
