All 3rdpoletour trips are accompanied by one of our professional English-speaking trip leaders who are different from the tour guides you may book from most of the online China travel agencies. Our trip leaders are trained strictly and they are not allowed to take guests to commission shopping factories. All of them are our full-time staff and work 8 hours every day in our office to do the editing and website friendly design when they don't have the trip on the road. Not like most agencies who pay their guides and themselves with commision earnings, we put the cost of paying our guides a good wage straight into the tour price so they are happy and not reliant on guests spending money shopping to earn their own salaries. Thus they concentrate on your needs and being the best hosts to you that possibly can.
They know the areas like their backyards and have explored like hundreds of times, providing information on the places you are traveling through, offering suggestions for things to do and see, recommending great local eating venues and introducing you to our local friends. With a experience of more than ten years, you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip including historical, cultural, religious and social aspect, while not being guides. everyone of them has served more than hundreds of guests from all over the world. They are responsible, trustworthy and have their own life experience and story to share which will add more fun and safety to your trip in the plateau highland.
At 3rdpoletour.com, we aim to support local guides who have specialised knowdge of the regions we visit. If you were interested in delving deeper into the local culture at a specific site or location then our trip leader will help you hire a local guide service and translate for you. In some trekking and mountain trips, we will also hire a local porter to help us carry the luggage and guide us to take a short cut.
Moreover, taking photos for you is one of their jobs, and they will show you how to pose and save the amazing moments and memories for you.
