Mark Twain once commented, "Travel is the single most effective weapon against, bigotry, hatred, and prejudice". My mission is to build a cultural bridge and create a deeper understanding between Eastern and Western culture through tourism and education.
My name is Scott Gumbiner, and I have spent the last twelve years of my life living in China while leading tours for some of the top tour operators in the industry, to include Tauck, Abercrombie & Kent, Imperial Tours, and China International Travel Service.
I have put together a tour for my friends and family to highlight the best of what you would experience on a tour like the companies I have worked for, but to also uncover an insider's perspective on a destination you could only get traveling with someone who speaks the local language and has lived almost one third of their life there.
Although I was born and raised in San Diego, California, the majority of my adult life has been spent living in China where I met and married my wife.
While not on the road, I thoroughly enjoy playing saxophone, ping pong, and perfecting my Mandarin.
I look forward to answering your questions and hopefully brining you to an intriquing part of the world that holds a special place in my heart.
