Helena Pan

I became a tour guide in 1985, within two years, I traveled all over China together with my groups from all over the world. I worked for a long time on the South China bike tour from Guangzhou to Guilin, and I hiked in many places in the southwest of China, including Tibet. In 2010, we decided to established China Adventure Travel Ltd, which now stands among the top travel companies in China, offering a wide range of treks, bikes, and soft adventure tours, among some unique tours ( family & education tours).

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"The mainland of China, Hong Kong, and Tibet. Treks, bikes, and soft adventure tours, among some unique tours ( family & education tours)."

How did you get involved in travel?

"In 1985, when I graduated from university, my job was signed by the university and teachers. No one knows at that time what a tour guide meant. When I went to ask my teacher of this job description, he said, Well, be brave and be an adventure, go and find it out and come back to let me know in a year. My teacher might not know this job well, but the word adventure encouraged me; thus, I started the adventure."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"In 1988, I went to the US and ride a bike across the country with a group of 30 young Chinese. The bike ride started from California, the west coast and ended on the east coast in Delaware It is a difficult trip, as we rode a total of over 5000 km with 7 weeks. But it is a lifetime experience that I will never forget.
