          Miko was our tour guide and all the information provided before/during/after the tour was very helpful. His good command of English is a big plus and we really enjoyed our tour with him.

          Jay’s Exceptional Guided Tour: A Stress-Free Exploration of Beijing’s Landmarks
          Jay effortlessly handled every detail, allowing us to fully enjoy the entire tour without any stress. He guided us through the essential points of Tiananmen Square and revealed the exquisite treasures within the Forbidden City. His extensive knowledge and passion were evident as he cared for his ‘Team Jay’ even on an exceptionally hot summer day (around 30 degrees C). Jay seamlessly navigated security checks, immersing us in history and culture while sharing captivating anecdotes. He pointed out the best photo spots too!This experience left us enriched, and we highly recommend it to anyone interested in exploring Beijing’s remarkable landmarks!

          Private walking tour of forbidden city and Tiananmen Square
          We came as a family, on a private walking tour with Sophie to the forbidden city and Tiananmen Square. In awe of the forbidden city, and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Sophie’s very insightful knowledge of the place! Would spend a full day touring the place and listening to the history and stories by Sophie. Highly recommend, thank you again Sophie.

          Beijing evening layover tour
          Had a fantastic time in Beijing on the private evening layover tour. 150% worth it and better than exploring yourself. Lucy, my tour guide, was amazing. Very knowledgeable and gave me a lot of information about various sites we visited. If you are in Beijing, don't be scared; walk out and enjoy the city. Thanks again guys! Worth every penny!

          Great tour with Licia
          Licia was my guide and we spent a good four plus hours together. She has strong knowledge of the Forbidden City and it was great fun walking through the compound with her. Her English is excellent and we had a nice chat. It was a rainy day but she took excellent care of me, helping to hold the umbrella over me when I took photos and also took photos of me. We later discovered a mutual love for Chinese tea so she brought me to a tea house to learn more and taste different types of tea. I appreciated that she also took the trouble to double check the terminal for my flight to make sure the driver was dropping me off at the right airport terminal after the tour. The agency driver Jason was super and also took great care of me. Thank you Licia for a wonderful first tour of Beijing for me. I’ll be back!

          Excellent Tour
          We had a great time on the tour of Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City with Susan. Susan was very knowledgeable about the places we saw and really helped put everything in context. She was very organised and helped us get through the security checks efficiently. It was a hot day but Susan took good care of us by finding shaded places for us to rest and take breaks when we needed to. Susan was excellent at keeping track of the group in a very crowded environment. The tour was very interesting and it was amazing seeing these historical sites. Would definitely recommend this tour, we had an excellent time, thank you Susan.

          Fantastic tour
          The tour of the Great Wall and the Summer Palace was excellent. Kevin was an amazing tour guide. He was entertaining, had lots of information and stories to tell about the places we visited, and was very attentive to our needs. A couple of people in our group were in their 70s and he took extra care to ensure they were well taken care of. Kevin knew all the best places to take photos and made sure we had an enjoyable time. Our driver was also very attentive, safe and friendly. We got plenty of cold bottled water during the tour to keep us cool and hydrated on a warm day. Thank you Kevin, we would definitely take a tour with you again, we had such a good time.

          Excellent experience with Miko
          My gf and I had the Beijing night walking tour with Miko as our guide. Miko is an exceptional guide, very friendly, funny and great fluency in English. He took us around the key night life areas in Beijing and shared the history of each area. He even helped us find and translate at a local pharmacy late night which was really helpful. I highly recommend Miko as a guide for any tours!!

          Great evening tour in Beijing
          We had an excellent evening tour with Miko. He is a great basketball fan. That's why he is called Miko. Mi means in chinese love and Ko stands for Kobe Bryant. Miko explained all very well. He took us for dinner to a local restaurant where we had traditional dumplings, which was a delicious dish. We highly recommend the tour with Miko.

          Knowledgeable- great food picks
          Great food tour with Anson ! Plus he explained the evolution of hutongs. The selection of food types was terrific in terms of the depth and breadth of flavours and regional cooking of ChinA- from spicy hand drawn noodles, to hot kebabs and even donkey sandwiches. Recommended!

          Great guided tour
          Anson was my guide and he’s friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, and articulate. He speaks perfect English and is very experienced dealing with international tourists. I was on my own so the pace was fast and I got to see a lot of landmarks in Beijing including the hutongs at night. At the beginning, Anson gave an engaging brief on the history of Beijing. It was also interesting to learn about the old and modern life styles of BJers. Highly recommend this.

        Thank you Jimmy for the most memorable experience we could have asked for!
        The visit to the wall was incredible, but your service, smile and knowledge made it far and away the best money we have spent.
        Jimmy was fantastic! From arriving punctually at our hotel, to making us feel comfortable, sourcing a vegan meal for us and providing such fascinating insight into both the history of the wall and Beijing in general. He was greatly knowledgeable on the best places for views and photographs as well.
        If you are looking to visit the wall, make sure you book with Jimmy. It is worth every dollar spent.

        I have decided to take up this tour to Mutianyu Great Wall as the saying goes. 不到长城,非英雄。This package also includes the tour to Ding Ling of Ming’s tomb.

        My guide and driver were Edward and Mr Jiang respectively. They were an awesome company. Edward was very knowledgeable and had shared a lot of interesting stories about the site. It was extremely fun that despite his huge size, he did the climbing of Great Wall without the burden of gravity. Climbing with him gave me a lot of determination to complete the route and finally I did.

        Personally I would recommend this tour to others. Thank you Edward and Mr Jiang for the great job.

        We choose this tour because it would take us to two highly rated sights near Beijing and with an expert guide. We were not disappointed. Our guide was Miko and he was everything you could hope for in a guide.

        Miko was awaiting us in our hotel lobby at the agreed time and greeted us warmly and prifessionally. We departed promptly in a clean, well-maintained and comfortable car for the drive to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall.

        Along the way, Miko told us a little of himself and his guiding history and experiences, and gave us a great introduction to not only the Great Wall but also the events of the eras during which it was constructed and re-constructed. Miko has great English language skills and is a great communicator. He took time to check what we knew and didn't cover information unnecessarily.

        As the day commenced, so it continued with Miko and the driver both providing excellent service. We had a superb lunch at a local restaurant all arranged as part of the tour. Miko coordinated good choices and communications with the restaurant staff and things couldn't have been easier.

        After visiting both sites and learning much about them and the regions of Beijing in which they're located we were returned to the hotel by the appointed hour. Nothing about the day felt rushed or uncomfortable. Miko and the driver were great at their jobs and very friendly hosts.

        As far as private tours are concerned this one is excellent - like a great day out with good friends. Highly recommended.

        Our excellent guide Miko meet is at the hotel with the driver at the agreed time and drove us to the wall giving us an explanation of the construction and history. Ascended by chairlift and enjoyed some time exploring the wall. Then descended by toboggan ( which is a must do)
        Had an excellent lunch on the way to the Ming tombs and returned to our hotel in the afternoon.
        I highly recommend this tour.

        We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to the Great Wall. Our guide, Mr. Qiu, was knowledgeable, organized and super friendly. He told fun stories to my children in the car to keep them entertained and was very patient with them when we climbed up the mountains. After we came down, there was even iced water waiting for us! A special treat on a hot day in Beijing! I also appreciate it that Mr. Qiu took extra effort to find us a local restaurant serving home-made village food style dishes. He made sure the place was clean and kid-friendly for my young children. Overall a fun packed day and what a view on the Great Wall! We highly recommend Mr. Qiu’s tour.

        Becky provided a full-day private tour of the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall and the Ming Tombs for me and my three children in their 20s. She was wonderful! Becky shared a lot of history and interesting personal stories during our day with her. She was also fantastic at asking what we wanted from the day so she could tailor our time with her to meet our interests, such as nearly two hours of exploring and taking pictures of the Great Wall on our own. Becky also took us to a delicious local restaurant where she made sure to order options we said we'd like but also introduced us to a couple of new dishes that we loved. Becky's English language and history skills were spectacularly. She was also quite adept at helping us navigate the underground Ming Tomb where we were fighting for space with a few large tour groups. I wholeheartedly recommend both this tour and especially Becky to anyone who wants a personalized experience near Beijing!

        [Thanks, Becky - Suzanne, Sean, Lauren and Brenna]

        If you are going to visit China and want an unparalleled experience seeing the best tours in Beijing, look no further than this tour. Edward was our private tour guide on an amazing day hiking the Great Wall and visiting the Ming tombs. We were on a journey with the best Chinese English speaking guide. We had the added experience of tasting tea, shopping for Jade at the local factory and eating an amazing lunch between the two parts of the day. Edward was instrumental getting us place to place, in comfort and negotiating the best deals. When we come back again we would highly recommend using him again. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and flexible on the days agenda.

        My wife and I had the pleasure of having Miko guide us during our day trip to the Great Wall and the Ming Tombs. He took excellent care of us throughout the trip and shared many stories about the history and culture of China. While you can read up about the Great Wall and the Ming Tombs to visit on your own, having a local guide gives an addition dimension with nuggets of information that only the locals know. Miko certainly gave us a deeper insight into the history of these sites, in fluent English no less.

        Do give the cable car and toboggan at the Great Wall a try. Easy and exciting ways to get up to and down from the Great Wall. Perfect for lazy people like me. ;p

        Other perks of joining this tour? The agency arranged all the transportation and tickets so we didn't have to queue much at all. We just had to meet Miko at our hotel lobby in the morning and he took care of everything else for the rest of the day.

        Thank you, Miko, for being our guide!

        We experienced a perfectly organized and highly entertaining full day (like ca. 8 hours) tour with our guide Albert to the Great Wall and the Chingling Ming Tomb from and back to our Bejing Hotel. Albert was an excellent tour guide. Did not only pick us up at the hotel lobby absolutely punctual, but also provided us with all necessary information regarding the history of the sites and any organizational issues like the ride with the cable car etc. He also had chosen an excellent place for lunch apart from all the tourist restaurants in the area. We do recommend this tour for everybody with a limited stay in Beijing.
