My family spent a day in the company of the lovely Fiona touring some of the main tourist spots of Beijing. Fiona arrived early and was waiting for us in the hotel lobby; some 9 hours later we waved goodbye after a full day. Fiona is fun, knowledgeable and attentive; we increasingly enjoyed her easy-going manner and company as the day progressed. Only an hour had passed when my wife's existing ankle injury meant she could not continue walking and needed to return to our hotel. Fiona acquired 3 bottles of water without being asked while we debated what to do in the Summer heat. My daughter and I continued into the Forbidden City while Fiona took care of my wife and called an Uber car for her a short distance away. After the car had left Fiona realised she still had my wife's camera bag that she had been carrying for her and so contacted the driver to return; he could not do this as the car was stuck in traffic so Fiona hired a bicycle and raced after them to return the bag, and then returned to the Forbidden City to meet up with the remaining members of our group. We then spent a few hours exploring the Forbidden City and stopped for a cool drink whereupon Fiona produced chocolate bars that she had previously purchased for us and a traditional Chinese game for my daughter. Following that we climbed the steep hill in Jingshan Park for the fantastic views overlooking the Forbidden City from above. Having previously guided us in using the metro Fiona then arranged another Uber to take us to the Summer Place; she again had extensive knowledge of this venue and when I jokingly suggested taking the peddle powered boat on the lake she immediately took up the challenge with enthusiasm and provided most of the effort in propelling us around - what stamina and willingness to take on activities to please her guests. We finally ended our day with a stroll through the hutongs. A wonderful, relaxed and memorable day. Thank you Fiona!

Although our group of four seniors went on a group tour of China, we hired Fiona as a one-day private guide in Beijing, based on her TripAdviser reviews. Definitely a good choice! She works with you, based on your time and interests. She has an encyclopedic store of knowledge and is fun and vivacious, even buying us things -- a hacky-sack as an intro to the Temple of Heaven Park, and snacks in the Hutong. We asked her to make reservations at Dadong for a Peking Duck dinner. She did, took us there, and then came back when dinner was over to escort us on the subway (per our request) to our hotel. We recommend her highly for a wonderful taste of Beijing!

We had Fiona show us around for two days. She was awesome! She made friends and engaged the kids. She told us all types of information about living in China as well as the historic sites. We used other guides in China, and she was by far the absolute best. Could not recommend her more highly!

Travelling alone, I really wanted to have a private guide take me around who was knowledgeable and friendly. Fiona was both, she helped me tailor my day to see Tiananmen square, The forbidden city and wrapped up the day in hutong. Fiona was extremely knowledgeable and had golden nuggets of information you would never know without having a guide. She was very organised, punctual and had fast track access to both main attractions. Thanks again Fiona and I would highly recommend her to all friends and family.

Against our better judgement, be booked a group tour back in January for our elephant excursion in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It was a complete disappointment! We will not make the group tour mistake again. When we decided to visit Beijing for the first time, we knew we needed a guide to help optimize our experience. The search for a private Beijing guide began and to our good fortune, we found Fiona. We booked Fiona for 3 days and gave her wide discretion on the planning. We had a few ideas on what we wanted to see and Fiona included them all in our itinerary. Fiona took care of all the many details! Did you know visiting the Forbidden City requires a copy of your passport? I didn't. Fiona did! I read the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall is the best, but I also read it's a bit challenging and strenuous. After assessing our fitness abilities during days 1 and 2, Fiona encouraged the Jinshanling section for day 3. The sparse crowds and stunning countryside scenery of the Jinshanling Great Wall made the long drive worthwhile. It became the highlight of our trip! Do yourself a favor and experience Beijing with Fiona's expertise. You will appreciate her knowledge, her humor, her accommodating nature and her professional friendliness. I didn't know what to expect from our trip to Beijing, but thanks to Fiona, all my expectations were exceeded!
