Jay Smith / 史杰

Jay is from County Durham in the North East of England and studied Chinese and Spanish at the University of Leeds. As well as a first class degree with a distinction in both spoken languages, he has nearly two and a half years’ experience working, travelling, living and studying in China. He has worked as a Tour Guide and Tour Operations Manager in Shanghai and Beijing, appeared on Chinese national television and also worked for NGOs in China.


Eve Baker / 白一冰

Growing up in the south of England in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, then moving north to Yorkshire for her studies (and her love of Yorkshire tea), Eve has first-hand knowledge of what life is like, and how it differs, at both ends of the country. Now living in London, she has come to know and love the unexplored corners of the city but would encourage any tourist to spend time outside the capital if they want to experience the real Britain!


Andrew / 朱海林

Andrew grew up in Gloucester in the West of England, before moving to Manchester to study Chinese Studies. Prior to learning Mandarin, he had already studied European languages in school, but the challenge of learning Chinese is one he has stuck with until today.



Harry grew up in Surrey in the South East of England, but spent a lot of time staying with his Grandparents in London as a child. He has had an interest in British history from a very early age, and was introduced to Chinese history and culture after picking up a copy of Romance of the Three Kingdoms in his early teens.


Sienna / 巴欣晏

Sienna is our Bath guide. She was born in Bath and loves to show off her beautiful home city to visitors from the UK and around the world. She became passionate about Chinese history, culture and language when she was 12 years old, and started studying Mandarin as a teenager.



James is a keen history geek, and loves nothing more than a few hours spent discussing interesting historical stories with foreign guests. He studied History and Politics at Oxford University, and followed this with two years spent living and studying in Beijing, including a stint at Beijing Language and Culture University. James guides our tours around the British Museum.
