The owners, Vera Habers and Hans Caljouw, have a wealth of experience and expertise in tour operating and with Chinese tourists.
Vera Habers has worked for several years co-ordinating representatives and tour managers for a number of operators. She was responsible for educating guides and tour managers as coordinator for the BUAS (Breda) and for the University of Inholland for the Tourism and Leisure Management courses. Currently she is responsible for the organisational aspects of the Business Innovation course.
Hans Caljouw has visited China many times, working for several tour operators, including a decade as a tour manager in China for De Boer & Wendel, encountering every conceivable situation. This is the root of his fascination for the Chinese, and their wonderful culture and country.
"Tour leading groups is something that has to fit your personality and competencies. You must have a passion for people and adventure and the enthusiasm to inspire a new group every day. Together with these qualities, you must have comprehensive knowledge of the destination and its culture".
