“Awesome guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We (my wife, our two teenagers, and me) hired Qing back in October of 2010 for four days. She was wonderful, and we still talk about her. She really made our trip special. I never felt rushed, or that she was overly priced. It was a great trip, and her knowledge and willingness to take us to un-touristed restaurants made it really fun. She and her husband went out of their way to move our baggage from our downtown hotel to an airport hotel while we were travelling overnight to Xi'an. We left our baggage with her while we were gone. That's how much we trusted her.
Even before our trip, she purchased our Xi'an train tickets (on the first day they became available) and held them for us until we arrived in town. Such incredible service!
She is highly recommended!

“Quing is a fabulous guide!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I was referred to Quing through a friend who had used her services and she was brilliant! She is very organised and knowledgeable about Beijing. Quing suggested an itinerary that was thorough and covered all the places and activities that we wanted to see. She was punctual and got us around Beijing with ease, making the tour interesting and exciting.

“Best tour guide EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Qing and her husband are a wonderful team! Our trip to Beijing would have been a completely different experience without them. They made logistics very, very easy.. For instance, at the Forbidden City, Qing's husband dropped us off at one entrance and then picked us up on the opposite side.. It was great! And most importantly, Qing has the ability to make all the sites COME ALIVE! She's a wonderful and captivating storyteller and gave meaning to everything we were seeing. Our only regret is that we couldn't take her to Shanghai with us - haha! Seriously, Qing is worth every penny and we highly recommend her!

“Qing and her husband are the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We travelled to Beijing in December 2011 and the best thing about our trip was Qing and her husband! They looked after us from arrival at the airport to our departure by train to Shanghai. Qing's English is excellent and she is very knowledgeable about everything - from the historical facts of the city, to what is a good price in the markets, to how to keep teenagers happy! In fact she amazed us at how she was really able to engage our 14 and 16 year old in the history of each of the sites we visited, and now over a year later they still remember it and appreciate it. We contacted Qing before we left for China via email and she was very accommodating and happy to make an itinerary around what we wanted to do, which included a half days skiing and a trip to the hot springs afterwards! She took us to some amazing restaurants and shared so many interesting facts about historical and modern China. My whole family highly recommend Qing for her organisation, her professionalism and her sense of fun. Her rates are very well priced and made for an easy, comfortable memorable experience!

“Love Qing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I learned of Qing through Tripadvisor, and had a wonderful experience with her as our guide.

We booked Qing for 4 days.. Via email before departure we gave her a list of what we thought we ought to see; she made suggestions and sent back an itinerary for our approval. She researched and found things my 79-year-old father wanted to see (cloisonne and silk factories) and was always finding places for him to sit and rest as we walked on our tours. She picked out good restaurants and chose delicious food for us. Qing was always providing information, and gave bartering advice when we shopped. Her English was quite good. We felt like we were seeing Beijing with a local friend rather than a paid stranger. I fully recommend her without hesitation.
