What an amazing experience. My guide Da was so sweet, my driver, Mr Suhn kind and attentive. They made my two day tour unforgettable. I would highly recommend a private tour. Especially if you are a solo traveler.

I and my wife, both senior citizens, were traveling from Houston to Mumbai through Beijing and had a 15 hour layover at Beijing between flights. We had booked a half day Great Wall tour with Jack's Beijing The. Earlier they had given me all information and answered all my queries through several emails answered promptly.
When we landed at defining, we could not know where to get the transit visa since no body spoke or understood English. Though it was before day break, I called Mr. Jack. He promptly responded and explained to the person handling wheel chair what to do. Thereafter everything was easy.
The tour guide Mary received us half an hour before time. She was an excellent guide and made us very comfortable.
I will gleefully recommend Jacks Beijing Tour to anyone who is looking for travel assistance in Beijing.

My plans changed, changed, and then changed again. Jack managed every problem I have him. The actual tour was great. Wallace was very knowledgeable and very friendly. He adapted the plans as I needed them. His motto was that he was not happy unless I was happy. He achieved his goal. I was very happy.

The 2 day tour far exceeded our expectations and was a fantastic value for everything that is included. Jack is very responsive and accommodating when booking your tour and everything can be reserved through email (recommended).

Our tour guide, Dana, made the tour much more enjoyable. She is very knowledgeable on all of the sites we visited and had a great sense of humor. We went to 6 different locations throughout the 2 days and felt it was the perfect balance. We had a private group of 10 people and everyone was fully satisfied with everything. Dana was great at keeping us on schedule without ever making it feel rushed.

The price included all transportation to each site (they will pick you up and drop you off pretty much anywhere you specify), lunch for each day, and all admission costs to each site. We were suspicious with the prices at the Jade factory, but it turned out that is probably the best value for Jade in China. At least do some research on prices before you go, we had no idea Jade was so expensive. Be prepared for A LOT of walking!

You will not be disappointed if you book your tour with Jack. I used him based on a friend's recommendation and loved everything about it.
