I wanted a hassle-free, carefree guided tour of some of the most important sites in Beijing, and Catherine Lu delivered! We booked them for 3 days of customized tours with our tour guide Shila, whose enthusiasm was beyond compare. She provided detailed background at each of the sites, helped me negotiate for souvenirs, and was our unofficial professional photographer, taking... More

We are very pleased with our three guided trips with Cathrine lu Tours! From the planning of the trip and to the excursion, Cathrine lu tours offered excellent service. We where a family of 10 people ranging in age from 6 to 80, and our grandmother of 80 where in need of a wheelchair. Our guides where very knowledgeable and... More

It was both an honour and a privilege to be in the company of Lucy, our wonderful guide for 5 days. This lovely lady was not only informative on the history of all that we visited but genuine, caring and 1 step ahead at all times making the transition from each tour to the next seamless. We would not have... More

I chose this Catherine's services because of the Tripadvisor review -- and I wasn't disappointed. Some Chinese friends had suggested I could do these three attractions myself and save money, but I am glad I didn't listen to them. I thought the value was excellent. Not only was everyone extremely professional, but I booked a tour with very little advance... More

I had only one day in Beijing (layover) and wanted to pack as much into one day as possible, and I didn't want to risk standing in the wrong line or simply being lost. I also didn't want to worry about anyone else. Minnie was my guide. She was prompt, friendly, and her English was good. She picked me up... More

We had a great time in Beijing, and our guide Robert was wonderful. Very personable and quite funny with a good knowledge of the history of the sights we saw,... More

The language barrier means China is something of a challenge for the independent traveller. Catherine Lu Tours held our hand throughout our stay, offering first class transport and transfer advice (including navigating the minefield that is Beijing station!) and excellent restaurant recommendations from our tour guide Kate. When our planned helicopter flight over the Great Wall was cancelled at short... More

Catherine Lu Tours have been excellent from the first email I sent them way back in March for a trip in September. Emails were exchanged promptly and they were precise and to the point. Minnie (my tour guide for 3 days in Beijing) was punctually, coherent and very knowledgeable. She knew when to talk and when to give me some... More
