    Sherry did a fantastic job showing us some of the best and most important sights in Beijing. She had already booked tickets in advance and was able to help navigate us through various gates and QR codes, which made the tour much smoother, and she was extremely knowledgeable, interesting, and friendly. Seeing these sights was at least twice as enjoyable because she was there to explain them and make conversation with us. I strongly recommend a tour with Sherry. We had a great time at Christmas because of her.

    My daughter and I had the pleasure of having Qing as our tour guide. We had a great experience. Qing was very knowledgeable and added funny commentary to engage my 9 year old daughter, whom is not interested in History (yet)! We learned a lot about Chinese history and culture, with the added benefit of being allowed to take ample time to take a multitude of pictures. Qing has hosted this tour for many years, so she provided us with tips to take the most flattering shots in this historical venue. I would definitely recommend Qing when taking this tour. We will remember this experience forever.

    With Helen's commentary and guidance, we really enjoyed our tour of the square and the forbidden city. It was bitterly cold (-4c) and helen adjusted our tour to suit our interest and even found all the areas with sun to warm us up. She really knew her history and didn't bore us at all. We loved hearing about all the little details like the lion statues and the rooftop figurines. Definitely recommended and thank you Helen!

    My partner and I landed in Beijing the night before and we wanted to experience Chinese cuisine the next day so we booked this tour in. Jimmy met us in the lobby of our hotel on time and with a friendly welcome. Together we walked and talked as he informed us of the history and lifestyle of those who live the city. Jimmy took some extra time to find a place that served donkey burgers, which were amazing to our surprise, before leading us to a variety of restaurants that were popular with the locals.
    We especially loved the walk through the Hutong's, where Jimmy explained the old ways in which the people used to live. Jimmy was also kind enough to walk us to the metro where he taught us how to purchase tickets and read the map.

    My partner and I loved this tour, we recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience Beijing as a local!

    We were so glad we did this tour vs. just walking Forbidden CIty ourselves. Connie our guide was super knowledgeable, contextualized and explained the history of the place and led us to places / photo ops inside Forbidden City which we would have never discovered otherwise. She picked us up at our hotel and we took the bus there, everything went smooth until we were inside and and we didn't feel rushed. Plenty of time to explore and Jingshan Park afterwards was great as well. Well organized with a great guide and we learned so much about Chinese history. Highly recommended!

    My husband and I booked this tour last-minute, and had a great time! The guide was knowledgeable on the history of the foods we tried and neighborhoods we visited, and the food was phenomenal. We also enjoyed mingling with the other travelers on the tour! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a quick way to experience some of Beijing's amazing cuisine.

    The best food tour we took in China. Our guide was Celia who met us at the entrance to the Metro. We found her to be very friendly, fun and quite knowledgeable about her city and its food. We first grabbed some takeout dumplings with skin so thin you could see thru it and brought them to a loud and authentic Mongolian hotpot place. The lamb and vegies were all good. From there it was onto an upscale rice wine bar for some delicious wine sampling. Yum!!!! Then onto donkey burgers - like small hamburgers except sweeter. She also introduced us to a favorite couple of street foods - one a crepe with fried tofu skin - out of this world and Mongolian yougert with honey. I would eat both of them every day if I could. After that we ate biang biang noodle soup with pork belly and vegies - good and the last was an old gambling den converted into a chicken wing place with fiery hot fried chicken wings. By the time we were done I was stuffed with great food and we were sad to say goodbye to Celia who was a terrific food guide! Do not miss this food tour! It is great!!

    A competent introduction for western tourists who are not familiar with the last two dynasties that are Ming and Qing, and are looking for whirlwind tour of the forbidden city.

    My partner and I really wanted to see the Summer Palace in Beijing so we organised this half day tour not knowing if half day would be enough. Our guide Lisa met us in the lobby of our hotel and we travelled to the Summer Palace. Lisa walked us through the Summer Palace and explained it's history and the significant figures in the Chinese Royal Family who had occupied it's walls and what its purpose was.

    The Summer Palace was fantastic and Lisa was friendly and informative which made our experience there memorable.

    Thanks Lisa for a great time at the Summer Palace.

    Anson was our tour guide. He spoke great English and had tons of knowledge about the neighborhoods we were walking in, which was also the location of our hotel. He gave us a variety of food choices, all delicious, but did give us the option to be more adventurous. We opted out of eating anything too exotic. We were so impressed with Anson, we signed up for a tour at the Forbidden City and requested him. He is extremely knowledgable about the history in China and tells it in a way that keeps things interesting.

    This tour is good if you have a short time in Beijing and want to tick these three off in a fairly 'hands-off' tour style. We were taken to a pearl shop and chinese medicine school but were in no way pressured to buy anything (and the foot massage was lovely - worth the 5 cny for sure)
