Joyce was amazing!!!! She spoke excellent English, knew so much about all the sites, made things as comfortable as possible, very personable, and we felt like royalty with Joyce. We got so much more out of our experience than if we hadn't hired a guide. We actually had some people following us at the Forbidden City so they could listen to what Joyce was saying. Beijing Private Tours. Thank you!!!

We had an INCREDIBLE time with Lena on our Catherine Lu tour of Beijing! Lena was a fantastic tour guide, really knew her Beijing history, and pivoted our tour based on our interests. She was great with scheduling the trip - the order of events and timing was really great! She was even supportive of going along with us when we requested more time hiking on the great wall (which was absolutely exhausting!). Catherine Lu tours was super accommodating and communicative. Will tour with them in China again!

Thank you very much for your excellent review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed the trip with our tour guide Lena and we will continue to work hard to serve our future clients. Although it's corona-virus time tourism is really quite, we believe this will end as the matter of time. Wish you also enjoy our other tours operated within China in the future! Best Regards Catherine Lu

My wife was refused entry into Beijing along with thousands of others, no reason provided.People treated like animals at the airport and threatened with arrest if they spoke out or didn't leave within 24 hrs. My wife was yelled at and told she would be arrested if she didn't stop crying. The Police were clearly enjoying the trauma they were causing and as a 28 year NZ Police vet I was dismayed at their shocking 3rd world behaviour and attitude, I was told "It's our country, we do want we want and we don't need to justify it to you" This was regardless of whether you had a full visa or visa free transit.
I entered Beijing to secure our luggage that was landside, my wife flew to Fukuoka to join me at our ships next port, despite being ordered to fly home by the sideshow police at Beijing , we were apart 5 days
.
I am aware of circa 2000 passengers who didn't board Quantum of the Seas in Beijing & about 1500 that joined in Fukuoka about 500 simply went home as that what the clowns at Beijing were telling them to do.
I did the 2 day tour as a refund was unlikely according to Viator/TA, Sophie my guide was fantastic, only person I saw smile in 5 days in Beijing, great to experience the history of the wall etc but all very hollow in retrospect without my wife.

We will NEVER return to China and will advise other travelers to avoid the place.

FORGET CHINA AS A DESTINATION!!!!!

We just completed a 2 day shore excursion being that we were two couples and tine was of essence to garner the best and most comprehensive Chins experience. Our guide Steven was previously a teacher of Chinese history needless to say his explanations done with both knowledge and humor but in perfect English helped us all better understand the REAL China both from the past and present.

Having the help of an expert driver Mr Cao we wee able to cover the vast areas of Beijing and never had to worry about traffic parking so each day was used to the maximum.

Steven also knew our tastes in foods and chose in advance a good range of restaurant options for each days lunch.

We could not be happier with our Beijing shore excursion which also included an overnight stay at the Hilton Beijing where we are treated like royalty.

Our guide Steven and Driver Me Cao were always on Time and extremely helpful with our walking the Great Wall and Forbidden City.

Thank you.

My husband and I (who speak English and no Chinese dialects whatsoever) had a wonderful and stress-free 2 day tour with Tracey, our tour guide, and Mr. Jack our driver. In Beijing during their “Golden Week” national holiday, Tracey spent a whole day finding us tickets to a sold out Forbidden City and found ways for us to avoid the crowds.

We were able to see all the major sites, learn some history, eat some authentic food and not worry about a thing. We never were forced into a souvenir shop and we were able to see things at our own pace. Tracey was really good at taking photos for us and shooed away other people in the background to ensure we got a good picture :-D. She also gave us alone time to see the sights and met up with us when we were ready. She was so incredibly nice

Mr. Jack drove a really comfy van, drove safely and kept replenishing our water bottles. When we asked for music, he put it on a Chinese/English station.

I highly recommend this 2-day tour with Tracey and Mr. Jack if you want to see a hassle-free and fun Beijing. Enjoy!

We really enjoyed our 2 day Beijing Private Tour with tour guide Joyce. Everything was run extremely smoothly, with no delays or problems. All of our needs were considered and the tour tailored to us, with extras (such as drinks in the car) that we had not expected. Joyce was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. We never felt under pressure, she gave us all the information we wanted, and she was very helpful (by taking photos of us together, for example). We were able to see everything that we wanted and really get the most out of our fairly short amount of time in Beijing, and we are so glad we chose this way to do that. The places we were able to get to, along with the excellent service from Joyce and our driver, and the authentic local food places Joyce chose for us (which served the best food we had on our trip to China), really made our two days a wonderful experience.

Our communication with Jenna at Catherine Lu Tours was very thorough, professional and helpful from the outset. We are normally independent travellers, but given the short space of time this was definitely the best way to make the most of our time. We had arranged for a pick up from the airport and had a few hours rest in our hotel before being picked up by our tour guide Amanda and the driver. It was great avoiding the queues around Tiananmen Square, there was no timed wasted. We had an amazing time in the Forbidden City, Amanda’s knowledge was phenomenal and we enjoyed hearing about the tales of the palace. The following day, we had an early 7am pick up to take us to the Great Wall Mutianyu section. Again, we didn’t have to worry about queuing and timing was perfect to see the wall in its glory before the onset of the crowds. Amanda even managed to get us into Michelle Obama’s cable car on the way down. It was well worth paying the extra to go straight to the attractions and make the most of every single minute, we would have wasted a lot of time doing these tours independently. It was also lovely that Amanda ordered our food in the restaurant for us, we very much enjoyed our authentic Chinese meal without the worry of ordering from a Chinese menu ourselves. Would thoroughly recommend booking a tour with Catherine Lu Tours to get the maximum benefit from your time in Beijing.

My wife and I booked the Catherine Lu 2 day Beijing private tour. Jenny our guide met us on the first morning in the lobby of the hotel and took us on a fantastic tour of the must see locations In Beijing as well as the Great Wall. Jenny was more like a friend than a guide, excellent English and so friendly and knowledgeable. She even helped us with recommendations for our following days in Beijing staying in touch via e mail.
The section of the Great Wall she took us to was approximately 2 hours drive out of Beijing but so worth it as there were hardly any tourists there, amazing history. The lunch was fantastic, grilled Trout with lots of local dishes, be sure to try the chilli beans.
Beijing history and landmarks are amazing but our highlight was the Great Wall tour, thanks Jenny.

We had a wonderful experience with Lena from Catherine Lu tours. They set up our transport to/from the airport as well as a nice, clean, air-conditioned van (with water provided) for our family both tour days. Lena met us at our hotel at the arranged time. Our first tour day was one of my daughter's birthdays and she came with a present for her, which was so nice. Our first day consisted of visiting Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, an amazing lunch, a tour of a Hutong neighborhood, and the Summer Palace, as well as the Chinese acrobatic show at night. Lena was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. She had a very in-depth knowledge of the history of our locations and we really enjoyed listening to the stories she told us. Our second day included a tour of the Great Wall, the toboggan down, the Temple of Heaven, and a short shopping trip at the Pearl Market, followed by the Kongfu show. Everything was taken care of for us (tickets, transportation, food), and we really appreciated all of the sights we were able to see, as well as our friendly tour guide and driver.
