“Great husband and wife driver/guide duo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We took a trip to Beijing last March... it was 6 adults plus one 7 month old. Qing and her husband organized every detail for us from beginning to end, and really took the stress out of the trip. Her stories were interesting, and made the places we visited (Great Wall, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, etc) come to life. Her English was excellent, and she quickly felt like part of our family. Arranging a private tour was perfect for us - we were able to rest when we needed to, and we didn't have any of the horror stories you hear from the bigger trips where you get escorted to silk and jade factories. We truly enjoyed our time with Qing and her husband and would HIGHLY recommend that you use their services.

“Excellent Tour Guide and Driver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We booked two half day tours (Forbidden City and Hutong Tours) and a full day tour to the Great Wall at Jinshanling with Qing, in addition to airport transfers. The guides and drivers were always on time, knowledgeable, accommodating and excellent with history and current culture. They were fun to travel with and happy to spend time answering our questions. Qing was also very responsive when we booked the tours, and she helped us identify restaurants and navigate the subway system when we were not with her. Qing and her colleagues are fabulous and we would book with them again in a heartbeat.

“Excellent tour guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I booked our tour very late -- two days before arriving in Beijing! But that was no trouble for them. Sarah was a lovely and very interesting guide and we considered ourselves lucky to have her as our guide. We visited the Great Wall, The Ming Tomb, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, all in our two days in the city. After visiting the Wall, we were taken to a local restaurant and had the most delicious fish lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Sarah, as her knowledge and input were invaluable, and I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Beijing.

“Quick stop tour of Beijing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

would highly recommend Qing as very informative and takes you to the places you really want to see :-). Loved the Wall, forbidden city, Tiananmen Square and Summer palace and learning the history. Food was not amazing but was able to eat.

“Wonderful Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I recently took a tour with Discover Beijing Tours in April 2013. The tour company did a wonderful job and at a very reasonable price. Prior to leaving they were able to customize a three day tour for me. My English speaking guide was waiting at the airport and she and our driver took us to all the places we had asked to visit. My favorite part of the tour was being able to eat at less 'touristy' restaurants. I really enjoyed eating where the locals eat. We did most of the major tourist attractions in the greater Beijing area, but also did some off beat attractions such as a Chinese acrobat performance. I would definitely use this tour company again.
