As a teacher in Beijing, I have been fortunate to find local tour guide Peter Zhao who was recommended by colleagues at the school. When my daughter, her husband and their two teenagers came to visit, Peter took me to pick them up at the airport in his mini-van and over the next five days, he took us to see all the magnificent sites of Beijing, the Great Wall, The Summer Palace, the Ming Tombs, The Forbidden City and The Temple of Heaven. Peter’s local knowledge, leisurely pace and good humour ensured we were able to relax and enjoy the time together. I subsequently booked him again when friends came to Beijing and this time we saw the local clothing markets at Beijing Zoo, and the Five Gold Star Markets where the prices are a fraction of the main tourist markets and its possible to find a real bargain. For the sheer convenience, and at the very reasonable rate 600RMB Peter is hard to beat, actually better value than joining an organized tour. You can contact him firstname.lastname@example.org. He responds same day, and is totally reliable and always careful about confirming arrangements.
