We are foreign teachers working in China, and were allowed to travel to Beijing during Dragon Boat Festival. We wanted to make the most of our trip so we looked around for a private tour. We were lucky enough to find Jessie. She was terrific --- very kind, knowledgeable, interesting, friendly, and just a wonderful guide. With driving ace Jack, we visited all the big sites --- Tiananmen, Forbidden City, hutongs, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, and (of course) the Great Wall. Jack provided cold water (sometimes iced!) through the difficult heat, and managed the traffic to and from the Wall like a pro. Jessie let us set the pace of the tour (it was REALLY hot!), so we felt comfortable and not rushed. And, she provided interesting insights into the sites that we visited. A real professional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

My husband and I booked a two-day tour with Lisa from Tours by Jessie. We were so impressed! Lisa arrived early both days. She was super nice, very professional, very helpful, and always smiling. She taught herself English -- it took her 12 years. Very dedicated to giving her clients the best experience. She took us to the Great Wall (Mutianyu), the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square, and the Beijing Zoo to see the Great Pandas. It was a trip of a lifetime, thanks to Lisa. Jessie also pre-arranged transportation to and from the airport for us, and the driver was so kind. When we got back to Beijing Airport he parked and walked with us all the way to the gate. We are so grateful to Lisa and Tours by Jessie. Highly recommend. 5 stars!!!

I booked a day tour to the Great Wall through Jessie. My tour guide was Lisa and she was excellent. I was promptly picked up and my day at the Great Wall in Mutianyu went very smoothly thanks to Lisa and the driver. Lisa explained all of the sights very carefully to me (with her impeccable English) and went at my pace throughout the day. I highly recommend this tour!!

We had a long layover in Beijing and I went in with an idea of what I wanted to see. Get picked up at the hotel, see the square, forbidden palace, the great wall and get taken straight to the airport. I approached several tour agencies with this itinerary for an idea of the cost and what they had to offer. Jessie was very responsive and seemed to have great value for what was offered so we booked in advance with her. Day of, our tour guide Lisa picked us up promptly was able to give a great day. She was able to accommodate all of our requests (we wanted some local street food she was able to find), and we found her knowledgeable and personable. We had a fabulous 24 hours in Beijing and Jessie and Lisa made that possible. We were in great hands!

By pure chance I happened to be one of Jessie’s earliest customers and I have relied on her ever since when visiting Beijing. She runs an impeccable business that is very client centric and customised - not mass market tourism. Her English is as exceptional as her historic knowledge of Chinese history. Thanks to her, I have visited the Great Wall in different places and at different times. I have also ventured off grid to less obvious destinations in and around Beijing. Having recommended her services to many friends over the years, I also know she is very gifted with family groups - making her visits fun for all ages. In short, she is best in class!
