We did a fabulous two-day private tour with Skye, including private transportation in a minivan with separate driver. We visited Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, a Hutong Tour (included a rickshaw ride!), and the Silk Market. In addition, we had some great authentic meals with Skye. Lastly, she is a really good, willing... More

We did a 2 day tour with Skye and i can only say "i dont know what we would have done without her". Everything about the tour was proffessional and informative with a heap of fun thrown in. Our 2 days were filled and rewarding, especially the Wall. Skyes local knowledge and experience makes for an amazing tour, not to... More

Booked Skye for a one day tour of Beijing and we had an amazing experience. She was easy to contact via Whatsapp and email, so before the tour we were exchanging notes so when the tour day came along it was all mapped out. She takes good pictures and recommends nice spots to take them, she even shoos away people... More

Skye is an amazing and wonderful person and guide. We had a 2 day tour. The first day Skye was booked but was so great to arrange for her colleague to tour the Great Wall, Summer Palace and some other attractions with us, who was also a wonderful guide. The second day we toured Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, and Hutongs... More

Skye is an easy going,proffessional and knowlegable guide. We spent 2 days with her. Her tour is accompanied with a private driver. She presented us with a 2 days schedule and was very flexible when we wanted to make changes. Skye is highly recommended!!

My husband and I arrived in Beijing 4 days prior to a cruise departing April 8, 2016. We contracted with Skye to be our tour guide for 3 days based on the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. We are so glad that we did! Our first half day in Beijing we were on our own, exploring the area around our hotel.... More

We had just two days in Beijing, and hired Skye based on her excellent reviews here. She is amazing and even surpassed our high expectations! She was incredibly professional, organized, timely, flexible, friendly, and full of information, suggestions, and advice (without overloading us with talk!). I truly don't know how we would have managed at all without her--we certainly could... More

We were recommended Skye by a local university who used her for one of their study abroad groups, and they were very impressed with how great a job she did. We hired her for a 2-day tour around Beijing, and I can easily say it was the best experience ever! Before our actual trip, she communicated with us via email... More
