Negatives: - The cost is significant. - Our tour guide, whilst having an excellent vocabulary, had terrible English pronounciation. We... More

I chose Catherine Lu tours as I wanted to spend the one day I had free on a business trip touring the Great wall -Mutianyu (am), the forbidden city and Tiananmen square (pm). Catherine was by far the best tour choice around, she was so accomodating. Even when I wanted to reschedule slightly the day before it was no problem.... More

We had Adrien as our tour guide and he was awesome! Super knowledgeable, eager to answer questions, funny - just an all around cool guy. He took us around the wall, gave us the option to gondola up and down or ski lift up and tobogan down, which we decided the second option. Took the ski lift up with us,... More

Joyce in Beijing tour guide works for Catherine Lu - Day Tour is the best because she is on to it with her information to everywhere we went. Knows the history of the place very well and that is what we need to know the history of Beijing. She made us very interesting in her stories about the history of... More

Catherine organised the most wonderful week for our family of 4 in Beijing and Xian in December 2013. I had already organised the accommodation, but Catherine organised the high speed train b/w Beijing and Xian and all the rest - individualised for what we were after. We were lucky to have Catherine herself as our tour guide in Beijing. She... More

Very nice guide with good english took us for a 1 day tour to The great wall and to the hutongs. They picked us up at the airport and left us there in the end of the day. We only had a 9 hour layover in Beijing and they really made a very good stay out of it!

I booked a 2 day Beijing tour with Catherine months in advance and put a deposit down. Unfortunately, I had to cancel the trip because I got pregnant with twins and it was high risk. Catherine first congratulated me and was more than accommodating. She gladly gave me a full refund. I will definitely book with her in the future... More

2 day tour of Beijing was fantastic. Our tour guide Sophia was wonderful. Geared tour to our interests. She spoke perfect English and was just delightful. I also used them for pickup and drop off at the airport, which made traveling so much easier. Pricier than other tours, but well worth it. Thank you Sophia!!!

my group and I contacted Catherine Lu tours when we were in Singapore, one week out and easily booked a one day tour of Beijing. They were even able to come to our hotel by the airport to pick us up. Sophie, our tour guide, was fabulous! She was very knowledgeable, spoke good English since our Chinese was non-existent and... More
