Hi - I have been reading the posts for a few weeks now - I am traveling to BJS in November in a party of 6. Myself, my son (21), daughter (17), father (76), sister and her son (6). I know it is a varied group with all those ages and while Dad is older he is pretty spry for his age. I orignally planned on using Lily but unfortunately she has already given the date I need to someone else. I am now looking for specific recommendations from others who have used guides in BJS and are satisfied. If you could give me specific reasons why you recommend the guide and a rough estimate on their cost I would greatly appreciate it. Obviously we want to hit all the highpoints and are also looking to maybe do a few things that are not so touristy. Also kids are insisting they want to try the peking duck, hand-pulled noodles and dumplings (ok the dumplings are for me LOL). So any suggestions about that would be great too. Looking forward to everyone's replies.
