I had the opportunity to spend a time in Beijing and decided to see what sites I could. Skye communicated quickly and efficiently via email. She accommodated my request to use public transportation (subway, bus, and taxi) while seeing the sites in Beijing and avoided all the shopping stuff (this alone was worth the private guide). Using public transportation ended... More

We found Skye on Trip Advisor and emailed her to find out if she could take us on a tour during our 15 hour Beijing layover. In spite of the 14 hour time difference she replied within a matter of hours and was able to quickly answer all our questions. Skye patiently waited for us through a two and a... More

My dad and I were in Beijing on business and we had limited time to go sightseeing. I am usually one to go sightseeing without a tour guide when traveling but my dad likes more structure so we decided to get a one - and I'm so glad we did! Skye came highly recommended to us by a colleague and... More

In late December I traveled to Beijing with a friend for a short 48 hour stay and we wanted to see Beijing's greatest hits and the Great Wall. We booked Skye for a one day tour that included the Mu Tian Yu section of the Great Wall and the Summer Palace. Skye was on time (even early) to pick us... More

We had a 15 hour layover and wanted to visit the wall. We found Skye on trip advisor and emailed her what we were wanting. She promptly answered our emails and set out an itinerary for us. She was waiting for us even after a one hour delay through the horror that is immigration control at Beijing airport. She took... More

We had pre-booked a guide for 3 days for our visit to Beijing but unfortunately our original guide was only able to accompany us for the first day due to illness. With our prior agreement she had arranged for Skye to step in for the remaining 2 days for our visits to the Great Wall, Temple of Heaven , Tiananmen... More
