          Excellent Tour and Guide
          We had an amazing time with our tour guide Jerry on this full day inclusive tour from the Summer Palace to the Great Wall. We felt no pressure the entire journey and the transportation to and from each site were on time and safe. Views from Mutianyu great wall were incredible and the lifts up and down were reliable and in good condition. Luckily Jerry took us in the early afternoon, avoiding the morning rush, which saved some serious wait time in the queues. Don't forget your passports as all National parks and UNESCO sites require passport for entry. Many thanks for this memorable day!

          The tour was great! The views of the forbidden city and the great wall are breathtaking and were for sure a highlight of my trip to china! Maggie was my tour guide and she was not only very kind but well informed. I will totally recommend it to anyone visiting Beijing!

          Feature packed day of sightseeing
          Packed day which included the sites mentioned. Though through no fault of our own. Tianemen Square was closed. Angela kept us well informed and explained the sites as we were passing through, she was also happy to take some of my obscure questions! Lunch was exceptional at a small local restaurant on the way to the Great Wall. All in all, a very easy way to do some major sites in Beijing!

          Take this tour!
          I recently had an incredible day exploring Tiananmen Square, the Palace Museum, and the Great Wall, all made even more memorable by our wonderful guide, Maggie. Her warmth and expertise shone throughout the tour, ensuring everyone felt comfortable and engaged. As a vegan, I was particularly impressed by the effort Maggie put into arranging a lunch that wasn't just accommodating, but delightfully delicious with multiple vegan options. It's rare to find such thoughtful consideration on tours, and it truly enhanced my experience. Highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a day filled with rich history, stunning views, and inclusive dining!

          Amazing tour in Beijing! Highly recommend!
          We had such an amazing day with Maggie as our tour guide to Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, and the Mutianyu Great Wall. She was such a great guide, providing all the history and answering all of our many questions. She had many great tips and knew the best spots. Also, she took all the pictures we wanted! Everything was beautiful and amazing. For lunch we had the best Chinese food I’ve had here in China. Would recommend Maggie and this tour very much!

          Lovely experience and tour guide
          Lucy was an excellent tour guide full of interesting information. She was attentive to our needs and responsive to our energy level that day (very tired from long day of hiking at different parts of the Great Wall the previous day). We learned so much about Chinese history and culture from her. We understand it has become very difficult for foreigners to visit the Forbidden City so we felt very fortunate that Lucy snagged tickets for us! We had a delicious meal at a local restaurant before the Great Wall part of the trip with Lucy and our driver (who did an excellent job - we felt very safe and the trip was smooth). Lucy was warm and kind, and I recommend her as a tour guide and this itinerary to any travelers to Beijing.

          This itinerary is perfect for those who want to visit all the essential historical sights in Beijing. No wasted time. Andie, our tour guide, is very friendly and knowledgeable about the places we visited. We moved quickly to each of the venues and didn’t wait in any lines. Withou her I would not haven seen all the details in this city, the numbers, the meanings of colors and statues, the story behind. That is what really made this tour great and the lunch was fabulous. We took an additional boat ride in the Summer Palace to watch the Acrobats on time in the evening. Our driver was waiting for us after each one and gave us door to door service. This is a must do tour! Private and gave us so much opportunity to explore each one.

        Great night views of Beijing from hotel pick up & return. Driver was excellent in his driving skills, broken english and great enthusiasm and pride in this fantastic city. Particularly enjoyed views of Bar City across the water, Olympic park with Water Cube & Birds Nest and older parts of Beijing with food places and outdoor opera. Driver stopped to take photos of me in various locations. Always felt safe and well taken care of - recommend DO THIS TOUR.

        Personal driver and guide Xie showed me great sights this evening. Very personal service by Lily’s Tour. Lily called me personally when I booked tour to tell me about some street closings due to mid-Autumn festival, then called during the evening to check in, deeply apologizing for traffic even though she and Xie had no control over that. Very enjoyable evening, Xie is very knowledgeable and polite.

        My daughter and I have just finished our night tour of Beijing with our very nice driver Xie Fung Huan who has a very luxury and comfortable car and really wants to share beautiful night sites of Beijing with his clients. His English is good and he proposed us to have a drink in a very nice karaoke bar close to the lake at the end of the tour and it was also a very good moment to share. The most impressive sites by night are the CCTV tower and bird nest.
        This night tour is worthwhile and well organised:)

        I was very pleased with the tour. Our tour guide was very polite and informative. We were able to see many beautiful buildings and sites that we never would have seen on our own. It was very very cold so we could not enjoy the tour as much as we wanted. But it was very nice.

        Great night tour even though there was a holiday in Beijing and we could not get close to some of the sites. Our guide Steven was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information that was easy to understand. Loved the view of “modern” Beijing from the 6th floor of a nearby shopping mall.

        We had a great night out and would highly recommend this tour. We got to see some great sights, perfect for people who don't like long bus tours with a group of other tourists. All the places we visited were interesting and even though we visited Beijing during a week long holiday our driver knew all the sneaky spots to stop where there was no one else.

        My guide met me exactly on time at my apartment, and we started on our tour in a very comfortable modern SUV. We drove through the Central Business District, stopped at the The Place - which hosts a huge LED Screen over the pedestrian walk, and then stopped at the Ming Dynasty City Wall. The drive through Tiananmen Square was impressive to experience just how huge it is. We saw the National Opera House and stopped at Wangfujing Night Food Street to see all the exotic foods (no I did not try the fried scorpions!). We made a stop and walked along Houhai Lake Bar Street to see bar after bar alive with bands and karaoke. We drive passed the Drum and Bell Tower and "Ghost Street". The most spectacular site was seeing the Olympic park Birdnest and Water cube all lit up at night. If you enjoy photography, this is definitely an exciting and convenient way to see Beijing at night with someone who is knowledgeable about Beijing and how to navigate the traffic!!!

        We only had a night and went with this 3 hour tour. It took a little longer and we wish we had even more time. There was a lot of traffic and even so everything went smoothly. Jenny is excellent as a guide and really knew how to keep things moving. She provided us a wonderful overview of Beijing...you do take in a lot. There was a nice mix of bus touring and walking around. Again, we really thought very highly of Jenny as our guide.

        Our family of four loved our tour with Jenny. We were able to customize what we wanted to see and really enjoyed shopping at Tobacco Alley and exploring Snack Street. Jenny also took great pictures and emailed them to us.
