I came across the China Guide while googling tours for the Great Wall before our trip to Beijing for Thanksgiving. They had very solid reviews and seemed to really want to cater to your wants instead of trying to upsale you things that no one cares for (stops at generic souvenir stores and sub-par restaurants, etc). I emailed them to get a free quote and Liang was prompt in getting back to me for the next few weeks, patiently answering all my questions and helping me curate the ideal itinerary for my siblings and I. We opted for a 2-day tour of Beijing sights and the Mutianyu Great Wall. Our guide, Albert, was phenomenal! He is SO knowledgeable about China’s history and landmarks. And if like us, you don’t speak a word in mandarin, having an English speaking guide with us was SUCH a lifesaver (as was having our own private driver bc getting a taxi in Beijing was almost impossible 8/10). Seeing all these incredible sights while having someone explain to us what it is we were actually looking at was seriously the best. And the food!!! Both days we had the most delicious meals!! Dishes we would never know about or order if we had been on our own. Yes, there are “cheaper” tours out there but as in everything else in life, you get what you pay for. I wouldn’t think twice before booking with The China Guide if I ever go back to China. My siblings and I had an incredibly memorable experience. Special thanks to Liang, Albert, and our sweet driver, Liu!!

We went to China for only a weekend and it was amazing. Since the begining while making all the reservation was very easy to do. the first day we were picked up at the airport and took to the hotel (very good recomendation from the company). The first day our guide Rocky Niu took us at the hotel and took us around forbidden city. He was really nice to us, he explained absolutely everything about China, very funny trip. Also I was very suprised when he brought his own camera so he can took super good quality photos for us (we only had our cellphone) so that was ver nice from him, also we couldnt change money at the airport and he helped us by making the transaction with him.
The tour is very flexible and with good timing. Thank you for the experience and making our anniversary very special!

From the initial booking, with Linda the agent, I was given confidence in the reliability and flexibility of "The China Guide". We came to China on a cruise and only had two days in Beijing. We were able to modify the standard itinerary and chose to book our single overnight hotel ourselves, but I'm sure that any suggested by the company would have been of the quality of the rest of our tour. I would recommend getting to Beijing by taking the "Bullet Trains" from Tianjin city or soon, nearer to the cruise terminal. Our Guide, Eric was fantastic, spoke good English and was very informative. Our drivers were all helpful - and safe- too. We had two fantastic meals in great restaurants (when the organised tours of others on our cruise did not) and were given plenty of free time to ourselves to decide what we wanted to do in an unpressurised fashion. Overall, a brilliant, memorable and worry-free trip, well organised that worked out as planned. I would definitely use "The China Guide" again.

Our guide, Eric made our trip to Mutianyu, Ming Tombs and the Sacred Passageway as one of the most memorable experience in this Beijing trip. Despite exceeding 2 hours of the supposed time span of the tour - Eric and the driver have been patient and empathetic to my mother’s legs condition. We have learn so much insightful history lessons from Eric, who is both knowledgeable and accommodating to our diet restrictions - and provided a wonderful experience for my father, whose childhood dream of visiting the great wall of china is finally fulfilled. I will highly recommend Eric as the guide to any friends or family member who like visit Beijing.

Prior to our trip to Beijing, we were concerned if of the hassles and safety (e.g. scams). The China Guide gave us the assurance that they are trustworthy and resourceful. As Singaporeans traveling in a group of 3 with elderly, the China Guide (sourced from TripAdvisor) was potentially OK based on reviews, hence, I contacted them via email for a quote.

The planning by Mia was great and there was no much hassle and waiting time at the attractions (forbidden city entrance was very smooth, and we have lots of time at Jingshan Park to enjoy the views, garden atmosphere and relax). There were no shopping stops, which was good for us. The plan was customized to what we wanted to visit, and the sequence was good. We like the massage recommended by the guide, it was a perfect recommendation after long walks in the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Jingshan Park, Hutongs visit and Mutianyu great wall.

Thanks to Serena and driver Song Shifu for being accommodating and helpful! Driver Song was patiently waiting at the airport and had my name printed on a paper which was easy to spot! Serena was also flexible and accommodating when we said that we wanted to spend more time at the great wall.

I am also glad to have visited the apple farm for fruit picking instead of 798 Art Zone, as my parents and I had never had such experience of apples picking before.

The overall price may be a little on a high side, but the hassle-free tour, coupled with comfortable car ride, tour guide and flexible customized planning justifies this. The only downside was not being able to see red leaves at Xiang Shan (Fragrance Park) as the timing is not right. Will consider coming again next time at the right timing!

24 hours to see Beijing's main attractions was always going to be a big ask of any tour guide company however Linda Yuan from The China Guide offered a great package that covered off on everything we wanted to see and do while in Beijing.
Our tour guide Eric Yuan was great and very informative. We were met at the airport and introduced to our driver, Kong before being dropped off at our hotel. The two days to follow were executed to our schedule without fault.
Would highly recommend that if travelling into mainland China it is essential to have an English speaking guide. Without our guide, we would have struggled to communicate and travel around to the sights.
Tours are well organised however include a lot of walking so would recommend comfortable shoes.
Personal belongings, i.e. cameras, phones etc. are safe when touring as crime is low. Items you don't want to carry can be safely left with the driver.
Most sights are heavily populated and crowded during the Chinese Summer Holidays mostly with Chinese Nationals visiting from surrounding provinces.
Overall, would highly recommend The China Guide.

We were on a cruise ship, we were picked up from the port by the guide Shusan and the driver. Saw the Great Wall and next day went to the Forbidden City, and other places in Beijing. Shushan was a very knowledgeable guide and also answered all the questions we had. We really enjoyed the two days we got in Beijing. We were just 4 people and we were able to get a very personalized service. Thanks.
