“Great Beijing tour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Thanks to TripAdvisor, I came across Sunflower! And I have no regrets. Although she wasn't available during our stay, her friend Maggie was great! She was very knowledgeable about Beijing history thus making our 3 day tour a wonderful experience. Have a great time with Sunflower!

“Sunflower Made a Great Trip even Greater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We started corresponding with Sunflower Li after finding her on Trip Advisor, she is prompt and was wonderful to work with as we planned two days of guided touring in Beijing. My wife and I can say nothing better then WOW. She is such a wonderful person, who has a warm smile and a kind heart. On top of that she is a true professional, and takes her business seriously.

We recommend hiring her for anyone who wants to seriously understand life in Beijing past and present.

“Sunflower was a highlight of Beijing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We met Sunflower quite by accident and could not be happier. We were preparing to go to the Great Wall as part of our Beijing stay, but the night before, we still hadn't booked a thing and were a bit wishy-washy about our plans.

Then we met Sunflower [and her phenomenally talented brother Richard]. All of a sudden, our plans came together and she was to be our guide. How lucky we were!

She and her wonderful driver led us to a starkly stunning section of the wall on a perfect blue sky day -- and we felt like the only people there. Along the way, she shared local advice, history - it seemed there was no topic she could not supply info on, and we were so grateful [and peppered her with many questions because of this!]

She also gave us great advice on where to shop, where to eat and how to get around. She's a real local and knows the city inside and out.

With Sunflower, you get the whole package: expertise, charm, worldliness and perspective, a personal opinion and guidance, savviness, a great laugh and a happy personality. Her English is superb and her vocabulary, rich. She made our experience her priority, and ensured we had a blast.

We now consider Sunflower a new friend. We highly recommend her services to anyone who seeks a guide not only for the Great Wall and Beijing, but beyond, in other areas of China, given her knowledge.

Thanks from 'the kids', Penny and Ben, too!

“Sunflower is amazing, the best money we spent in all of China!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Please do yourselves a favour and book a daytrip with the absolutely wonderful Sunflower, I guarantee you will not regret it!

We had such a great time exploring the Forbidden city, Temple of Heaven, eating at this fab little restaurant Sunflower revealed to us and then cycling around Houhai lake and the hutongs. It was great to be able to have a hasslefree day, Sunflower took care of everything from arranging entry tickets, navigating throughout the city and ordering at the restaurant. She also took great photos for us :-)

Sunflower is worldly, well travelled and extremely knowledgable- she spent much of the day revealing interesting bits of historical info, along with providing a fascinating insight into Chinese culture.. I can't properly put into words how much of a great time we had with her! Beijing is quite a tricky city to see as English isn't widely spoken and scams are quite prevalent so we felt we had to be a bit on guard when we were on our own, even though we would consider ourselves to be quite young savvy travelers. Sunflower provided a fun, relaxing, interesting and authentic tour.. Enjoy your time with her!! :)

“Wonderful way to experience Beijing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

My husband came to China for work, and we managed to schedule a single full day in Beijing with no work commitments. Sunflower came highly recommended to us by a friend and she did not disappoint. There's nothing new I can say that hasn't already been written about her - all these reviews are spot on!

We spent the morning at the Great Wall, enjoyed at delicious (and cheap!) lunch, and walked around the Summer Palace in the afternoon. Her historical and contemporary knowledge about Beijing was excellent.

Without a doubt, this was the most enjoyable day on our 10 day trip... I only wish we had more time to spend with her visiting other sites! Do yourself a favor and spend as much time with Sunflower as you can - your trip will be so much better!

I can't wait to share her with our friends who are traveling to Beijing!
