Based on that recommendation we contacted Skye to set up our one day tour. She was excellent. Skye responded to my e mailed questions... More

When a group of friends decided we wanted to visit China and take advantage of the 72 hour visa policy for Americans, we did not know where to begin. After doing some research, we found Skye and she was the BEST tour guide we could have asked for. Everything was organized from pretrip planning (Skye was incredibly responsive to emails... More

My fiance and me had a blast with Skye in Beijing. I did some research for private tour guides and also contacted a few, but Skye really stood out with her excellent and professional English skills. (She actually turned out to be way better in English than us! :D) She responded quickly whenever I had questions or wishes regarding the... More

During my trip to Beijing, I was fortunate enough to be part of a group that chose Skye as our tour guide. As a history buff, I was happy to find that Skye was incredibly knowledgeable about the historical sites of Beijing. She provided great context while we enjoyed the fascinating architecture, customs, and historical artifacts on our tour. However,... More

Skye was an amazing tour guide! This was my 2nd trip to Beijing, but this one was way more memorable than my first all because of Skye! She knew exactly where to take us for sightseeing and for food, her recommendations were spot-on, and she was always a fun person to be around. Skye will surely make your trip memorable!

We had only one day in Beijing and a friend gave us Skye's email and number. She was so thoughtful. She had another tour booked the day we needed her, so she set us up with Lucy and a driver. We had a great time and she took us to the Temples, Forbidden City and the Summer Palace. Lucy never... More

China recently instituted a 72-hour visa-free transit policy in Beijing. After deciding to visit with 7 of my friends (all from the US and Colombia), I found Skye on Trip Advisor, along with several of her competitors. I e-mailed her with several questions and requests, and not only was she the most punctual with her responses, she was also the... More

We had a wonderful 2 days with Skye beginning with her greeting us at Beijing airport. She is incredible friendly and extremely knowledgable. We had a loose itinerary and visited all the major sites with the highlight of our trip being the Great Wall at mutianyu which as previously said is a lot less busy than other sections. We took...

She's the best tour guide ever. She took me to Lama Temple and she told me to ask for a wish to Buddha, exactly one month later it came true 😊

Skye was our guide in Beijing. She was very attentive, knowledgeable and a very kind person. Skye was our guide for 3 days. In three very busy days we visited Tian’anmen Square, the Forbidden City (amazing), visited the Hutongs around the Shichahai Lake, The Temple of Heaven, (now a public park where local people do exercises), Panjiayuan Antique Market, went...
