Great Wall and summer palace
Jan 2020 • Family
Jeffery was the most helpful and knowledgeable guide we have had. He was so very caring of our children and went above and beyond to make sure our experience was awesome. Our driver was amazing and so very helpful. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to be shown China. One hundred stars!!

Private tour with Linda
Sep 2019 • Solo
I had such an amazing time!! Linda was very friendly and knowledgeable. The private tour was great because we were able to be flexible. At the Great Wall, I also got to experience a traditional Chinese tea as well as a delicious lunch. We were supposed to go to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, but unfortunately, it was closed for National Holiday, but she took me to the Summer Palace instead which was absolutely gorgeous. She even offered to take me by Tiananmen Square to see if we could see anything from the car. The driver Mr. Soon was also excellent. I would highly recommend this tour as well as Linda. And I would definitely take another tour with this company. Thanks again!!

Great tour with Susan
Sep 2019 • Family
I am not a guy who typically writes reviews, but in this case I had to. I travel internationally a lot with business and many times I get 1/2 a day or 1 day max to tour. This was hands down the best tour I have ever taken. My tour was fantastic from start to finish. Susan was phenomenal. Friendly, informative, and patient. She took time to continuously take pictures of me at key spots as I toured alone. She took the time to plan the trip around what I wanted to see and different specific things I wanted to buy. Five stars. My next time I tour in Beijing it will definitely be with her.

Fabulous & Private Trip to the Great Wall & Summer Palace
Sep 2019
I booked the tour about two months in advance and was SO excited to finally see the Great Wall! I was travelling by myself so it was just me on this tour. I was a little hesitant that I would feel awkward because usually I book group tours; however, I was pleasantly surprised that it was not awkward even one bit! Sherry, my tour guide, was terrific from the beginning, made me feel extremely comfortable and spoke English very well. She was so incredibly accommodating (dietary restrictions, hotel location, free time, chatting, etc.). The day before the trip, Sherry texted me to confirm my pick up time and location (my hotel in Beijing). I met her in the lobby of my hotel and she was already there (early) waiting for me. Outside, a private car awaited us and chauffeured us to the Great Wall. Along the way, Sherry gave a thorough history of the Great Wall and set expectations for the day ahead. At the Wall (and for the rest of the day), she took care of all of the tickets for the Wall's admission, shuttle bus and chair lift that you must take - I didn't have to do a thing. At the Wall, she walked me around and took all the pictures of me that I could possibly want. Sherry gave me free time to take in the sights by myself and walk (and climb!) parts of the Wall. We took the slide on the way down from the Wall, which I highly recommend. It was SO much fun. After the Wall, we had a delicious, buffet-style lunch in a restaurant nearby (vegetarian-friendly too). We then journeyed to the Summer Palace via our private car with a quick stop at a tea house because I was interested. (Bottled water is provided for you the entire day.) En route, Sherry gave a detailed overview of the Palace and again, set expectations. At the Palace, Sherry continued with the history and gave a fully-guided, private tour of the Palace grounds and showed the highlights. The Palace was so beautiful and truly a must-see! More pictures were taken and free time was offered. We departed the Palace and since we had some extra time, we took a driving tour of some other sites in Beijing. After the tour, I was dropped off at my hotel in Beijing and we said our goodbyes after a long, but incredible day of sightseeing. Sherry was a wonderful guide; her knowledge of Chinese history is truly vast and she explains everything tremendously. Definitely worth every penny and highly recommended!

Private tour with Joanna !!!
We had the most amazing trip thanks to Joanna our tour guide she was very fluent!, unlike many of our previous guides from other countries which was a huge positive. She was so good to us always taking photos, answering questions and giving us loads of knowledge which we enjoyed. As well taking us to the best restaurant, just what we have wanted out of this trip. Can’t thank you enough for such a jam packed enjoyable day !. Cheers the Jordan family for a trip we will never forget :).

Great Tour
I highly recommend this tour! We got the all inclusive package. I was debating whether to get the all inclusive package or the basic one but I'm glad we got the all inclusive one! Lily our tour guide did an excellent job! He was super helpful and nice! We had a 10 hour layover and that gave us plenty of time we needed for the tour! Thanks so much! We had a great time!
