Very convenient for a 1 day stopover. No hiccups, smoothly transferred from the hotel to the antiques market and Pearl market. Lynda guided us towards what we wanted to see, saves time. She also helped negotiate a deal. On the way she told us about Beijing history and architecture. Overall very pleasant experience! Julia

I would really recommend this tour for anyone who is a bit daunted by visiting markets in Beijing on their own. Our guide Lisa was excellent, guiding my husband and I through the markets and giving us info on all the types of produce and wares. It was so interesting and we felt at ease with Lisa by our side. We really enjoyed the tea Tasting and didn't realise there were so many beautiful flavours of tea. A bonus also for us was seeing some chinese dragon dancing in the Market, which we had time to watch for a while. Thank you so much again Lisa for such an enjoyable experience.

Sally was a great guide to give us an overview of Beijing and history before we hit the local market. There were two markets and the first was our favourite as it was local, no other tourists and very different products on show for sale. The tea ceremony was also enjoyable. Sally was able to help us with buying a Gluten Free Lunch which was a great help.

I had a wonderful experience with Lisa today. I don't think there is any way I could have navigated the markets without her because I am not a bargainer. She made everything very comfortable and it was like hanging out with a friend all while getting the best deals I could possibly have gotten. Our first stop was an open air market that had stones, bracelets, paintings, necklaces, 'antiques' and other souvenir knick knacks. I absolutely loved it and probably couldn't have found it without her. Our second stop with the Pearl Street Market where we had a lovely tea tasting where I had some of the best tea I've ever had. Then we wondered around the market and she helped me with the quality of products as well as negotiate price. I don't think I would have ever been able to get the prices that she got because I am not a negotiator. Today was a wonderful experience and I couldn't have done it without Lisa

Totally recommend this tour! Our tour guide, Linda was fantastic. She organised the tour according to what we wanted. She knows what antiques or jade are bad quality and did all the bargaining for us. Also important was she had no hidden agenda, ie didn’t steer us towards shops where she got commission. The tea tasting was a great experience. Just like going on a day out with your best friend from the moment you meet her!

Lisa was a great host and very accommodating with nothing to much trouble. The tea tasting was a really nice point to relax and enjoy many different types of tea. Lisa's help was also in valuable to help understand best value at the markets , high light of the trip.
