Of all the copious research and preparation for our short Beijing venture, far and away the best thing my wife, adult daughter and I did was to touch base with Stretch-A-Leg Travel. From the outset, it was obvious that they are a well-organised, disciplined, flexible, friendly operation whose main aim is to do all they can to ensure that one... More

Not only were the views spectacular, Tony was a wonderful guide and traveling companion. He had an enormous wealth of knowledge but was also considerate and really wonderful to chat with.

Wow my husband and I loved every minute with our very knowledgeable tour guide Henry. Our hike was fab from start to finish with breathtaking views and informative talks. At first we were apprehensive about doing a private tour but after reading previous reviews we didn't hesitate to book and wow I'm so glad we did. My husband and I... More

I cannot say enough good things about Stretch A Leg, and Jonathan. Our (my Mum, Dad and myself) best day in Beijing was all thanks to him. He's punctual, friendly and knowledgeable (he could answer every question we threw at him). His English is excellent, and he explains things so comprehensively. Jonathan guided us through the busy Beijing subway system... More

I had the most enjoyable travel guide experience with Tony and his company, Stretch-A-Leg Travel. Tony was always available to us, any time of day or night, and was able to provide cars or vans as the need arose. We never had to do any of the logistical planning on our own - we just expressed our interests to Tony... More

The Forbidden City, even early in the morning can be a very crowded place. Fortunately, Tony knew the place inside-out and avoided us queueing for hours to buy a ticket. He was also able to take us off the beaten track and give us a more peaceful tour of the City. Tony has lived in New Zealand and is fully... More

This was actually my second tour with stretch a leg and both times I have been so impressed. They put a lot of effort into tailoring the tour to your particular interests and get you into the greatest off the beaten path corners of Beijing. First time I used them it was to discover an untouched and largely crumbling and... More

There is so much I could say, but in a nutshell: I highly recommend Stretch-A-Leg to anyone that wants to explore Beijing and China. The team is great, the guides super nice and knowledgable and there is nothing they won't be able to organize. We had a great time, as I always send guests with Stretch-A-Leg and this time I... More

We are a private school in NYC. I took 15 students to China during last spring break and spent 4 days in Beijing. Tony from Stretch-A-Leg was our tour guide and he was AMAZING! He took us to Tian'anmen Square, Dashier Hutong, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Great Wall with toboggan ride (so FUN), Bird's Nest, Water Cube, and Beijing Zoo... More
