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!
Our guide was so knowledgeable and she took us to see people singing
in the park and doing acrobatics and she took great photos of us!!
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.
William was an awesome Tour Guide! Loved the personalized attention. Would recommend this tour to anyone who has limited time in Beijing and wants a personal tour of the city.
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.
Great way to spend the day in Beijing! my tour guide Coraline was fantastic and very flexible in accommodating my requests for the sights we visited, as well as very knowledgable about the history of Beijing and details on every place we visited. Highly recommend!
Cherry was awesome and very knowledgeable, patient and understanding. Her English is great.Also she is a lot of fun to be around.
William is the best guide ever. We walked 12.5 miles in 1 day. We saw everything and he was so knowledgeable and a lot of fun. I wish they would have given me him the next day too. Thank you William.
Our guide Cynthia was absolutely amazing, and she made sure we saw a lot of things in one day! We were taken to see Tiananmen square, the Forbidden City, the Drum and Bell Towers, took a rickshaw around the Hutongs, and the Temple of Heaven. We were also taken to a silk factory, where we were shown how silk is harvested and used to make materials. Although we did a lot in one day, we weren't rushed at all and we were able to take our time looking around each place. Cynthia was very good at speaking English, and she was able to tell us a lot of history and information about each of the attractions. We walked or used public transport to get to each place - even the taxis in Beijing are very cheap, so this wasn't an issue!
Excellent. My guide cindy did a wonderfull job. She is a very experienced tour guide. She arranged the tour exactly to our requirements and was proud and happy to show us Beijing - which is an amazing city.
Carlin did a great job of managing the tour and explaining the most interesting aspects of the sites we visited. She also was very flexible in revising the agenda to meet our needs. We really enjoyed our time with her and would highly recommend having her as a guide!
Many thanks for a great experience,
the tour guide was helpful, he assisted us in so many things, non touristy things ! he also was very informative when it came to the site seeings ... a must have when in beijing
Highly recommend this tour especially with Mr. Gru / Gyu not sure of the spelling.
Mr. Gru is knowledgeable about the history of the city and took us to all the spots where we wanted to go. His english is quite good and he understood and spoke well. Communication with him was a pleasure as was the day trip.

Very nice and friendly guide, I had to pay all her cost, the time was exactly 8 hrs, not more or less, but Victoria was very friendly and helpful, it was a GREAT EXPERIENCE with her. We enjoyed it so much!
We really enjoyed our private tour of Beijing, visiting the Lama Temple, The Temple of Heaven and a tea ceremony. Our guide, Wendy, was very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was very useful to have a local to steer us through areas where our lack of Chinese was a hindrance, especially on our first day.
Can highly recommend this service to any first time visitor to China.
I thought this was a great idea because we could go to places that we wanted to see but weren't quite sure how to get there or how to negotiate things. Michael, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He helped us explore places all over the city!
Michael is "the best tour guide ever". He was extremely accommodating and knowledgable. He answered every question that I had and there were many. The tour is the best way to see Beijing in a day.
Excellent - we used this as a way to supplement a multi-day tour that we were on that wouldn't cover all the things we wanted to see. Our tour guide was Cherry and she was great!
Excellent trip, our guide Cynthia was very good. Having your own guide is excellent, provides a much more personnel touch and allows you to ask questions. Cynthia provided us with a great amount of information and was a fun and informative. Getting around in Taxis was easy, we also used the underground which again was pretty straightforward.
Easy way to see the sights of Beijing. The best part? You decide what you want to see! Just make sure to coordinate with your guide / local company after confirmation so they can prepare your itinerary effectively. We went to the Great Wall (at Badaling) and the Summer Palace. Great guide and an overall fantastic day out.

This was the best way to see the sights of Beijing easily... We went to both the Great Wall at Badaling and the Summer Palace. Our guide was informative, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Highly Recommend!
We started at Tiananmen Square and then went through the Forbidden City. Our guide, Christina was very good. From there, we caught a cab and went out to the Summer Palace. On the way back we stopped at the Olympic Site to see the Birdcage and the swin cube. Went throught the Silk Museum, which was interesting, but ended with a sales pitch hawking all the silf goods. We did buy some nice silk products, prices were reasonable.
This was a really good way to get to know the city and learn a lot about the history of China.
The tour was great. Did see Tienamien square, it was super. Then visited the Forbidden city, my guide Cherry was very informative and very helpfull and explained all very well.
Afterwards we went onwards with the driver to the Chinese wall. We went the to less visited Mutianyu.
Absolutely amazing. I was very impressed with all.
All in all it was a super day. A little bit grey at the Chinese wall, but I was very impressed. Loved every minute of it especially since there you found yourself often almost alone on the Chinese wall. Super.
Cherry was very attentive and explained all i wanted to know.
Would definetely recommend private tour with driver.
