We did a Beijing Private Tour with Joy and had a wonderful set of visits! We were able to come up with a customized itinerary to focus on what we wanted to visit - the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Temple of Heaven, and the Summer Palace. The highlight was the Great Wall, which was stunning. It was very helpful to have Joyce's explanations on the sites so we understood what we were seeing and also her assistance for logistics - pick up, drop off, knowing where the nearest toilets and baby changing facilities were, and where we could warm up from the cold. We were traveling with a toddler and her help made this a smooth experience.

I forgot my password to tripadvisor and the reason I got a new one was this tour! We were treated to a fabulous private tour of the great wall and the summer palaver by the very knowledgeable Winnie. Apart from a smooth car ride, nice lunch (included in the price) and fun tour, she went above and beyond to help is with the rest of our trip. Truly impressive service, would definitly recommend!

From the get go, our communication with Catherine Lu tours was top notch. We did a 2 city, 7-day private tour. From airport pickup to drop off and everything in between, our private tour was top notch, well organized and went off without a hitch. Our tour guide, Sonia, was knowledgeable, caring, friendly, kind, helpful and full of information. I can't say enough good things about this experience. Would recommend over and over again! Thank you for helping our families create an experience we will never forget.

Jenna from Catherine Lu Tours came up with great itineraries for our stays in Chengdu, Hangzhou, Xi’an and Beijing. The drivers and guides in each city were personable, knowledgeable and very professional. Our guides were Kiki in Chengdu, Jason in Hangzhou, Sunday in Xi’an and Jenny in Beijing. Every tour was customized to our needs and specific tastes. They had great recommendations for restaurants, shows, shopping and foot massages too! Jenna also organized for a private car to take us from Hangzhou to Shanghai and our driver was fantastic. I would use Catherine Lu tours again in a heartbeat! They were very easy to work with, very flexible with last minute requests and changes and very reasonably priced.

The 3 things most travelers are looking for when taking on an adventure. Booking was very easy with plenty of contact from the operator to confirm everything. Met our driver Jason and Nico in the morning on time. Nico was fantastic, great knowledge of the sites we visited & we enjoyed our local restaurant lunch of Dumplings. Really appreciated the company looking after us & both Nico & Jason for looking after us the whole way.
