We are just back from our Beijing journey. And the only thing I could say: we could not wish more. When looking for a guide you will prefer somebody you can count on. This is Skye. You may be sure you will get the best experience. Moreover, I can say you that you will feel that Skye is your friend... More

Skye is just an excellent guide. We have never had a guide as good. She not only speaks very good english but also has a great grasp of the history and the culture of all the major sights in Beijing. During our stay she was very flexible as to scheduling, providing many different options as to what to see and... More

I was in Beijing for business earlier this month and a coworker found Skye on Trip Advisor. We had a packed morning since we had to be at the airport at 1, and Skye planned everything perfectly - from the hotel (where she picked us up) to the amazing tour of the Great Wall and finally dropping us at the...

We used Skye on our latest 24 hour quick tour for Beijing. She waited for us at the airport gate on time, is very informative, knowledgeable, has excellent English and sorted out everything. The trip couldn’t have been more smoother and easier which was great for such a limited time we had in Beijing. The car was in very good... More

My friend's boss recommended using Skye as a private Beijing tour guide. We are very happy with his suggestion. We cannot recommend using her services more enthusiastically. She picked us up promptly each of our two days in our hotel with her friendly and careful driver. She knew the best spots to enter Tiananmen to avoid long lines. And she... More

Skye guided me for two days in and around Beijing, the trips were well planned, and very interesting. Skye speaks excellent English, and has a very good knowledge of the local history and culture, and was excellent in sharing that history. Her drivers were very good, safe, punctual, and courteous. I have never used a personal guide before, but now... More

We engaged Skye after reading so many positive reviews about her level of service and her knowledge on Chinese history and culture. She far exceeded our expectations with her interesting stories of historical figures and her hospitality. In fact, we were so comfortable with her that we left our aged parents in her care while my siblings and I went... More
