        Excellent Tour for English speakers
        Our tour guide, Anson, was very detailed and thorough. He did great job explaining the history of the forbidden city. Additionally, he also provided us the best locations to take photos. We had a little bit of trouble finding the meeting location, but he was able to find us and get started immediately. He was very attentive and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend to anyone visiting. Only downside was that the weather was extremely hot so please be prepared if you are coming to visit in July.

        Worth it!
        An informative, interesting and well-rounded tour. Small group size (12) made maneuvering through peak season throngs manageable and individual attention possible. Our guide Jay was very attentive and capably guided us through each step of each process (security, ticket purchasing, etc). When one of our group suffered from heat exhaustion Jay handled it responsibly and with care. His knowledge of the least crowded, shadiest routes was invaluable on an extremely hot, humid and packed day.

        Nice experience
        The tour guide was great at telling stories and avoiding the crowd. Love tht part of it since July in Beijing is super hot, being in the shade helps. He was responsive as well to tend to my questions.

        Pleasant afternoon at Beijing's Summer Palace
        We spent a lovely afternoon at thr Summer Palace. Our guide May was excellent and made sure that we got to experience all that the Summer Palace had to offer in terms of history, scenery and culture. It was very busy but May knew all the shortcuts so we were able to get the most out of the time we had.

        Everything was perfect. Our tour driver Zhao Jinfu showed up in time. He spoke good English and was amicable all the way. We skipped all the lines with this tour reservation so it was very efficient

        The right tour to see the Forbidden city
        The tour was amazing! The combination of Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City is a must in Beijing. We did the tour with Kevin, very good tour guide, giving us a good time with good jokes and very good anecdotes. He’s very passionate and loves doing these tours. Highly recommend!!

        Kevin is an excellent tour guide !!
        Very interesting visit. Kevin was an excellent tour guide. He told us many stories about the Chinese people and monuments. He was very helpful all the time. For example, he showed us some very good restaurants for dumplings and roasted duck and helped us with the taxi. Kevin made our visit a wonderful lifetime experience.

        Great delicious food tour
        We had the pleasure of taking a food tour in old Beijing with Miko as our guide, and it was an exceptional experience. Miko was friendly, courteous, and incredibly helpful throughout the tour. His knowledge of the local cuisine and culture was an added bonus to our exploration, making it both enjoyable and informative. We had a fantastic time sampling delicious foods and learning about these dishes.

        Excellent tour
        Excellent tour of Tiananmen and the Forbidden City. Our guide, Miko, was knowledgeable, considerate and spoke very good English. All was well organised. Highly recommend doing this instead of trying to get a ticket through the official website, which is almost impossible.

        Highly recommended. Miko is an excellent English speaking guide.
        Can’t imagine you can find a better English speaking guide than Miko. Miko set the expectations from the start and he explained every part of our tour in utmost clarity and detailed. It’s a lot to take in at the Forbidden City. Miko made it possible. Loved the fun Q&A, too.

        Great tour, guide (Miko) was the highlight
        This was a great tour to get acclimated to the city and cover a large area in a 4-5 hours. Miko was our guide and he was excellent in all aspects. Miko provided excellent insight and commentary into all aspects of Beijing life and the sites. He also did a good job of keeping the flow of the tour going and updating us where our next stop would be and how long it would take to get there. Would do again.
