Our 2 day trip to Beijing was very well organized. Right from airport pick up all the way to airport drop off. Jimmy our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us on track all through. All in all I would definitely recommend this company for any of your future travels.

Discover Beijing...Vivienne Rocked!
May 2018 • Friends
My work colleague and I literally landed in Beijing, picked the most highly rated tour company that had availability and were picked up as advertised the next morning. Discover Beijing made it easy and we really appreciated it.

Without a doubt, the highlight of the tour was our guide, Vivienne! She showed up on time and simply asked us what we wanted to do and see. Within 15 minutes we were driving into the city seeing three major sites: the Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. To wrap up the day, she took us to her favorite dumpling restaurant (just outside of the Forbidden City) and helped us navigate the subway system as we called it a day. She was equal parts, knowledgeable about the sites/history, adventurous and most importantly very open to adapting plans to help us maximize our stay in the city.

A fantastic day in Beijing, I would recommend Discover Beijing and ask for Vivienne as your guide.
