William was great. I am confident that he saved us more money than he cost. He negotiated deals for us on whatever we wanted to do and steered us clear of any problems. He was knowledgeable and easy going. His English was excellent and he got us off the beaten path. Highly recommend it.

I had a great time on this private tour. It was really nice being able to customize my itinerary and see 3 of Beijing's great attractions without feeling rushed. My tour guide was fantastic and knowledgeable.

Excellent. I couldn't have been happier with Cherry. She was our private guide for two days - she showed us all over Beijing, educated us on Chinese culture, helped us choose the right restaurants, convert our money and bargain for souvenirs. What I loved the most is she took a lot of our photos so I was actually in them too! We saw the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Hutongs...we didn't miss a thing! I highly recommend a private guide and driver especially if you have a limited amount of time!

This was a classic get to see the main sights of Beijing tour. Michael did a fine job and was pleasant to be with. Informative, he spoke English well and was easy to understand. He could have helped us interact with the locals some as they were very interested in my family and tried to communicate with us. But he wasn't too interested in translating or at least just letting us know what they wanted or why they were so interested in us until we asked him. At the Forbidden City we didn't go with the main crowds walking down the middle, instead we were off to the right and had a touristy photo at a stand. It was a lot of fun. At the Summer Palace I thought we were to take a ride on the dragon boat again touristy but looked like fun and a chance to rest but we didn't. This would have completed a great day for the family.

Goo did a great job of getting my family of four around Beijing by metro. He was informative, easy to understand and flexible with where we wanted to go. I really like the private tours for my family and we could eat where we wanted. We had fantastic Peking duck at the end of our day. Not sure we would have found the restaurant on our own.
