This is what one Trip Advisor member had to say:  "Adlyn's food safari of Beijing is a top high point of a trip to China.  She is extremely knowledgeable and provides sound advice on China generally.  Adlyn speaks perfect english.  She guided  to a large, outdoor night market places where it was safe to eat (ate a lot and didn't get sick).  She found a late night, neighborhood restaurant and ordered a great dinner.  Her strongest point is her style and constant flow of conversation."
