We recently visited Beijing for the first time with two of our daughters and spent two days with Laura. She is relaxed, friendly and down to earth with an excellent command of English. She was terrific and had our daughters engaged within the first five minutes of meeting, and they hated saying goodbye two days later. Her knowledge was extensive... More

This was my family's first trip to Beijing, and Jonathan made it absolutely memorable. From the moment he picked us up at the hotel to when he dropped us off 9 hours later, Jonathan was nothing short of spectacular. Not only was he friendly and had a great sense of humor, but his command of the English language was better... More

My wife and I were in Beijing for a one-day stopover and I considered our various options--from visiting on our own, to group tours and other private guides. I settled on stretch-A-Leg to make the most of our time and feel comfortable with a reputable company with a proven track record. The company lived up to the highest professionalism and... More

Absolutely best hike of my life, and I couldn't have had a better guide than Laura who was a virtual Encyclipedia with not only information about the Great Wall, but could tell me anything and everthing about the China in general. The hike was beautiful, and Laura was delightful and made the experience the best I had while in China.

With Stretch-a-leg Travel we were able to see places we would never have otherwise seen. Jonathan was a great, friendly, and informative guide. I really liked that he gave us access to unusual places while also allowing us to learn about the general history of China. I recommend Stretch-a-leg Travel if you are traveling to Beijing. If you can do... More

We had an excellent experience with Stretch-A-Leg Travel. We spent our first two days in Beijing without a tour guide. It was Ok, but we missed out on things because we did not understand the history, currently what was going on, etc. Our tour guide was very personable and extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much in the three days we... More

I recently visited Beijing as a solo traveller and booked, based on great reviews, a two day tour with Stretch-A-Leg Travel. I had reasonably high expectations which can sometimes lead to disappointment if those expectations are unrealistic and the experience doesn't quite live up to them. I knew though that within about 5 minutes of meeting my guide, Laura, I... More

A terrific two day tour with Laura. Be sure to ask for her; if she is your guide, you will be especially fortunate. Her knowledge of the Forbidden City and far flung hutongs was fantastic and really made history come alive. Any question was answered, and any request was accommodated. The Great Wall experience was one of a lifetime; if... More

How lucky were we to discover Stretch-a-Leg tours and have Jonathan as our guide. We highly recommend this as a great way to see some different parts of Beijing and have a very friendly and knowledgeable guide to provide local insights and information. We did two days with Jonathan - Day 1 we hiked a wild part of the wall... More

I had one day to sightsee while on a business trip, and that included wanting to see the Great Wall. The folks at Break-A-Leg were very responsive, professional and we had a very efficient day and I saw GW for 1/2 day plus several other things (and got great pictures--thanks Jean!!). As a single female traveler not conversant in Mandarin,... More
