Laura was our tour guide for the wild great wall and a Beijing tour. Laura was prompt, charming, extremely knowledgeable, speaks excellent English, and we had a great time with her. Laura was also able to provide us with lots of additional info during the trip and I was able to text her with questions. The tours are expensive, but... More

Jonathan was assigned to us. He was great. Very personable and got us around to all the sites we were interested in seeing. We went to 798 which consists of many galleries. It reminded me of Soho in New York. Very chic and alot to see. We also wanted to see the Hutongs and Tianneman Square which we did in... More

I spent three days with Jonathan, who was an excellent companion. His English was quite good, so he could convey the history of the places we visited, as well as share some jokes and points-of-view. The first day we toured the Forbidden City and The Temple of Heaven. The second day we visited Hutongs, the Bell and Drum Towers, and... More

I spent a whole day with Laura visiting the Forbidden City, Tienanmen and the Lama Temple. She is dedicated, good fun, very well prepared, great storyteller, quick and flexible. Our lunch was delicious and she was very informative. I wish I could have spent more time with her

Where to start: I cannot say enough positive things about Stretch-A-Leg, our guide Laura, and the Wall experience at Jinshanling in general. It was a once-in-a-lifetime-type endeavour and one for which we are truly grateful to Stretch-A-Leg/Laura for making a possibility. My girlfriend and I were looking for a Great Wall experience that was "genuine", in that we wanted to... More

Stretch-A-Leg Travel is by far the best way to get-to-know Beijing - its people and sights. A day with guide Laura Zhao visiting Tian'an Men Square, Forbidden City, and the Dazhalan & Liulichang hutongs was one of the highlights of my three weeks in China. She was outstanding in every way and I felt like a local. Stretch-A-Leg provides a... More

We arranged two days in Beijing with Stretch a leg. We had Jonathon as our guide. The first day we did the Forbidden City and the Hutongs. The second day we went on the Great Wall hike. Jonathon was great. He knows a lot. I can't think of any question we asked that he didn't know the answer to. We... More
