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

l can't imagine being able to have meaningfully seen as much of Beijing area attractions without Skye and her colleague. My positive impressions of Skye began well before meeting her; she is very prompt over email communication and helped me determine an itinerary that made the most of the 2 days we had in Beijing. Though she had other commitments... More

Skye is a great guide through and through. We had two days with her and she was able to adjust the schedules as needed due to the unpredictable weather. You can also decide on whether to take local transport or hire a private vehicle - it's that flexible! Extremely helpful and honest, and took care of my parents a lot!... More

There's no better way we could have seen Beijing during our 10 hour layover. We arrived early in the morning and Skye and her driver greeted us at the airport. Initially we had only planned to see the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall with the limited time we had, but Skye was able to adjust to our wishes and... More

Our friends recommended that when we went to Beijing we should use Skye as our tour guide because she was very personal and very good, and there is no doubt that she was. We were traveling with Skye from the second we landed in Beijing on June 12th to June 14th, and sadly we had to leave on Sunday, so... More
