We really enjoyed our tour with Laura - for her knowledge, sense of humor as well as her ability to understand us as well as making us feel like we were travelling with friends. Amazing food as well. It was also very convenient booking the tour, getting pick up from the airport and fitting in a Great Wall tour to a not extremely crowded part of the wall even though we had only half a day to spend. I would not go back to Beijing without booking a tour with Stretch a Leg!

Laura was our tour guide for the wild great wall and a Beijing tour. Laura was prompt, charming, extremely knowledgeable, speaks excellent English, and we had a great time with her. Laura was also able to provide us with lots of additional info during the trip and I was able to text her with questions. The tours are expensive, but we enjoyed them a lot. I found communicating with Stretch-A-Leg to be challenging - the company was not always responsive and the communication was not always clear.

Jonathan was assigned to us. He was great. Very personable and got us around to all the sites we were interested in seeing. We went to 798 which consists of many galleries. It reminded me of Soho in New York. Very chic and alot to see. We also wanted to see the Hutongs and Tianneman Square which we did in the morning. It was a great day and I would highly recommend Stretch A Leg. We couldnt ask for anything more.

I spent three days with Jonathan, who was an excellent companion. His English was quite good, so he could convey the history of the places we visited, as well as share some jokes and points-of-view. The first day we toured the Forbidden City and The Temple of Heaven. The second day we visited Hutongs, the Bell and Drum Towers, and the Summer Palace. On both of those days we used a combination of taxis and metro for travel. The third day a car and driver took us out of the city to a deserted and overgrown part of the Great Wall for a "wild hike", which was a good work out, and great way to learn about the history of the wall. Stretch-A-Leg is a well organized group, responding quickly to emails and questions. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for an introduction to Beijing and all it has to offer.

I spent a whole day with Laura visiting the Forbidden City, Tienanmen and the Lama Temple. She is dedicated, good fun, very well prepared, great storyteller, quick and flexible. Our lunch was delicious and she was very informative. I wish I could have spent more time with her
