We booked a Beijing walking tour with Lotus. She was an excellent guide! She speaks English fluently and is very knowledgeable. We learned a lot from her not only about the historical facts but also about Chinese culture and people. She took us to a local (not tourist) restaurant where we enjoyed lunch. Unfortunately, DiDi and WeChat still do not work with foreign cards (even though you can load them, but you can't pay yet) and since we decided to see an acrobatic show after our tour, she decided to wait for us for an hour so she can make sure she can explain to us how to buy the metro tickets and get to our hotel! We greatly appreciated that. The best way to communicate with her (and any other tour guide in Beijing) is through WeChat. I highly recommend that you download and set up that app before you go there.

My son and I spent the day with Lotus and I can’t say enough great things about her! The day was flawless- from the pick up at our hotel to the walking tour of the Forbidden City- we learned so much. Lotus is extremely knowledgeable about the rich history of China and speaks fluent English. She has a very easy style and is extremely kind. Lunch was a treat and the Great Wall was thrilling. I highly recommend Lotus to you!

I went on a two-week trip around Beijing and Nanjing with a group. We had multiple guides throughout the different cities and attractions. Everyone's favorite by far was Lotus! We found ourselves comparing all other guides to her and were disappointed when we did not have her for our final day in Beijing. Great English, easy to understand, and was the only tour guide who would make sure the entire group stuck together! She also was happy to be a bit flexible and see how the group was feeling before deciding the next stop at times. So friendly and happy to answer any question you may have! I would recommend her to anyone!

What an amazing trip. Lotus let me at the agreed upon time and my day was off to a fabulous start. The Great Wall is impressive. I elected the ski lift up and the slide down it was amazing. Lotus was so kind to take photos and video of me on the experience. After plenty of time on the wall and shopping we had a really good lunch. It was just me and Lotus and she was so friendly and kind explaining many Chinese things to me. The summer palace was the perfect recovery from the big lunch. Strolling through the lovely gardens and hearing the history was lovely. It was a perfect day one that I will never forget. Thank you so much for making my trip to the Great Wall so very special.

We discovered Beijing with the help of Lotus the tour guide. Lotus is professional instructor. We learned from her new and interesting things about China in general and Bigin and its sites in particular. In addition to Lotus's professionalism, she proved to be a pleasant and sensitive to our needs. Lotus speaks excellent English.
