Amazing Beijing Tour Guide Terry
Terry was an amazing tour guide. This tour was the last day of our 17 days traveling (by ship) up the Chinese Coast. We booked this trip independently of our cruise.

Terry was able to give a comprehensive tour around Beijing including The Forbidden City, tea class, lunch at a popular local spot, and the Temple of Heaven. She even stopped at the Silk Factory (per my request). We felt we could return home satisfied that we absorbed vast amounts of local culture and history.

Most of all, she was enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge as well as interested in our local History (of Boston). Not only did we have an amazingly fun day but we also made a new friend! Also, the driver was safe and careful so it was truly stress free and enjoyable.
