Out of the large number of Beijing Tour Guides we selected Daphne as she was very responsive to our emails, extremely flexible with the itinerary and seemed friendly. We were so pleased we made this decision as the tour was outstanding. Eventhough a significant family event occurred on the day of our tour, Pau was on time and committed to... More

My 26 year-old daughter and I spent 3 days in Beijing being guided by Pau. My wife had contacted Daphne in advance and arranged an excellent overview of some of the major sites in and around Beijing. Everything happened exactly as planned and we found Pau to be very professional, extremely knowledgable and most accomodating. He was very friendly with... More

We found Daphne on TA and after emailing several companies in regards to a day tour, Daphne was the first (and friendliest!) to respond. We worked together to create a personalized itinerary for the day- It was nice to be able to create our own tour without any restrictions. On the day of, our tour guide, Pau was prompt and... More

I spent 3 days in Beijing guided by Pau. The tour has shown professionalism as Pau was always punctual and fullfilled our expectations in terms of history, minorities, economy, politic, religion, language, culinary presentations of China. We had also the opportunities to meet locals in Hutong. This guided tour brought me fantastic eyes experience of China and a better understanding... More

I booked my tour through Daphne after finding her on tripadvisor. Her prompt reply's made me feel at ease about my decision. I did the great Wall tour with a half day at the forbidden city and acrobatics show in the evening. Traveling as a girl solo I was a little hesitant about doing a day tour with a male.... More

Daphne and Pau are the perfect team. I had emailed several private guides that I found on Tripadvisor, and Daphne was the first to respond. Going over the options and booking the tour was effortless and confirmed with ease. Today, I had the tour with Pau to the Great Wall, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, and it was perfection. The... More

Pau mentioned years ago to us when we toured Beijing with him, "Bring your kids!" We decided to give it a go. WOW!! Our children (ages 8, 6 and 4) still can not stop talking about how amazing Beijing was- the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, riding bikes through the Hutong, Olympic Village…. Fantastic. What is even more compelling, is... More

We just returned today from a private tour with Pau of the Hutong and the Great Wall. I had originally booked with Daphne but as Daphne is pregnant she recommended Pau. Having our luggage not arrive in Beijing, Daphne was extremely helpful offering advice and even extra clothes such as gloves and hats for my family to wear. Pau arrived... More

We signed up with Pau as our tour guide in Beijing in November 2013, after we read all the positive reviews for Daphne and Pau. Pau was indeed extremely good and I would recommend him to anyone. He was on time, very polite and considerate, extremely knowledgeable about Beijing and China, and most of all very flexible. Our schedules are... More
