Lucy took me on the tour of the Summer Palace, she was very knowledgeable and a great companion for the day (she takes great pictures too!). Out of all the places I’ve visited in Beijing the Summer Palace was by far the most beautiful. The lake was frozen when I went which was magical to see all the ice skaters! Will definitely book with Lucy again when I next visit.

I've been traveling to China for over a decade, and had visited the summer palace before. But taking a formal tour was absolutely wonderful. Linda, our guide, was knowledgeable and funny and patient with our group of six unruly university professors. We will certainly want her to take us around on future trips.

What an amazing day we had with Lucy. Thank you, our train came in an hour early and you and the driver were there to pick us up.

Lucy was able to accommodate a late request to pop into a silk factory so we
could buy some last minute items and then off to the Summer Palace. Lucy’s knowledge and energy was very evident and really helped us gain an in depth understanding of that period of history and circumstance.

Additionally, Lucy’s english is outstanding and has a very happy attitude that we engaged in immediately. After the Summer Palace we then visited the Olympic precinct. Again a great learning experience.

I personally recommend Lucy to anyone that wishes to experience the sights, history and feeling of Beijing.

Perfect guide Jimmy! We traveled off season in February (after the New Year Holiday) so the crowds were not bad. Jimmy gave us detailed historical information and spent well over the 2 hours with us in the cold!

This was a lovely tour and Jimmy was the best guide! It was nice because in this off-season, there were only five of us on the tour. There is a LOT more than can fit into two hours at the Summer Palace, but when that's all the time you have for it, I recommend this tour Jimmy was funny and educational, kept us going at a good pace, and took pictures for us at scenic spots. He also helped us to make sure we were going the right way on the Subway as we left. Thanks for a great tour Jimmy!

Becky provided an outstanding tour of the Summer Palace for our group of four adults. It was a picture perfect day with balmy breezes and included the Dragon Boat ride across the lake. Becky spoke great English, related very easily to each person in our group, took our needs into account and therefore made the tour exciting and very interesting to each of us. Becky is a very gifted tour guide. We highly recommend Becky to anyone seeking an outstanding English tour in Beijing!
