I researched a lot of tour companies and after reading many reviews I choose Mary and she was the perfect choice. We booked two days with Mary, she picked us up at our hotel the first day and we went to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. We took the chair lift up to the wall to tower 6. Great views and much to my surprise it was not crowded at all. We walked from tower six to tower one, some steep sections however great views. We took the toboggan down which was fun. After leaving the Wall Mary gave us the option of seeing a hutong or seeing the acrobat show. We choose to see the hutong. When we arrived we jumped into a rickshaw and were taken to a home where a family welcomed us in and showed us around. Good way to see a typical Chinese family’s way of life. Day two was the Temple of Heaven, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Summer Palace. Mary is very personable, knowledgeable, has endless energy and a fun person to be around. She took time to answer all our questions and throughout the two days she gave us options on places to visit. We followed her lead and don’t regret it. One note about Mary which says a lot of her character, one member of our party had an issue with a train ticket we had purchased prior to arriving in China. We discovered the error when Mary and my friend stopped at a train ticket office to pickup the tickets, the passport number was wrong on one ticket. Mary called the ticket company to see what had to be done to correct the problem. When we had no success, she continually made calls. When it seemed my friend would have to take a different train to Shanghai, Mary had been checking the train ticket website off and on and found him a ticket on the same train. She then took him to the train station via subway at the end of the busy second day to pick up the tickets. Mary willingly helped us out and we were very appreciative. Mary, you are awesome! See Beijing with Mary.

Great private tour guide. Great English and knows the city very well. I saw everything I wanted in 3 days during the Golden Week in Beijing. Perfect guide. She will tailor the experience to what you want out of your sightseeing.

My family and I had a wonderful time in Beijing this August and we owe a big part of that to Mary. She is a very good guide and such a kind person, that's why traveling with her was an incredible experience. In three days she managed to show us the most important places in Beijing and to teach us a lot about China's history and culture. Moreover, she was always so happy and warm that my whole family got attached to her. All in all, I am really grateful that I hat the chance to have Mary as a guide because I'm sure that my trip to China wouldn't have been the same without her. I hope that someday I will have the chance to see her again and that until then, lots of other tourists will have the opportunity to discover China's capital with Mary at their side.

We were visiting Beijing for the very first time.. Mary, our guide, was amazing.. she planned our tours, gave us helpful tips and also took us to good vegetarian restaurants. Thanks to Mary, we learned a lot about the history of China. Our family vacation was memorable.. we want to come back to Beijing again!

Mary picked us up as arranged and was happy to plan our trip in the fly and adapting it according to our needs and traffic conditions. Her English was the best we had encountered in Beijing and her knowledge of history and all things China was brilliant. We thoroughly enjoyed the Great Wall Mutianyu and the drive through the mountains. The cable car up and toboggan down enhanced the experience but of course the wall itself was incredible and going in the offseason meant that in our photos the wall looked tourist free which is never easy to accomplish. We were excited to have our first hotpot meal with Mary and would highly recommend her services in Beijing.
