A premier touring company - Beijing Discovery Tours. Six of us took private day tours in Shanghai, Yantai and Dalian - all organized by Jeff of Beijing Discovery Tours. He is superb - an excellent organizer who arranged everything for us including seeking our feedback and tweaking the next day’s tour to meet every request. Guides in each location spoke excellent English, were personable and knowledgeable in history, culture, art, current politics and more. Shanghai Day 1: Shanghai Museum, Yuyuan Garden, local bazaar (former French concession area), The Bund at night, Nanjing Road and a Huangpu River cruise. Shanghai Day 2 Tour: Drove to Suzhou, Nets Gardens, Hanshan Temple, Tiger Hill, and most especially Zhouzhuang Water Village and Canal boar ride. Fabulous sites, guides, drivers and transportation. In Yantai City and Dalian City tours we were equally pleased and saw a full array of sites carefully arranged for us. Lunches were included every day and entrance tickets purchased in advance to prevent delays. Jeff of Discovery Tours is THE BEST we’ve experienced in 16 years of cruising 6 star ships. He and the company are incredible.

I booked Beijing Discovery Tours on Viator for one-way transportation from Beijing City International Airport (PEK) to our hotel in downtown Beijing (Jinbao. Dongchung). The driver was waiting with a name sign as we exited the baggage pick-up/customs area. Transportation was in a clean mini-van, and other than rush hour traffic, the trip was seamless from the airport to the hotel. The driver was familiar with alternatives to the expressway and was able to avoid some of the worst traffic by traveling on a parallel access road. Excellent service.

Beijing Discovery Tours are without a doubt the reason that my family rate our Beijing holiday as one of our best. Jeff and Andy were professional throughout, from the initial enquiry, to the booking process and the tours themselves. They took care of everything for us, airport transfers, sightseeing, restaurants, tickets to local shows and transport for the duration. Andy accompanied us as an English speaking guide and his commentary and insights were excellent. Thanks a lot guys, you made our holiday something special.

We recently booked Beijing Discovery Tours based on the positive reviews on trip advisor, and thankfully, they were just as described by previous reviewers. We booked a car to take me and my husband, baby and toddler to the Great Wall (Mutianyu) and also pass by Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. It was a national holiday week, so the square and forbidden city were absolutely mobbed and we didn't think it would be wise to bring our two young ones there, plus we also forgot our passports in the hotel, and would not have been allowed inside the square without them (tip for everyone else), so our driver just drove us around the perimeter which was fine for us, as we will be coming back to Beijing in a future trip and will see them the next time. We then took a 1.5 hour-2 hour ride to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, which was supposed to be more scenic and less crowded as it's a bit farther away. Our car/van was very comfortable, clean, and had lots of space so that the entire family could relax there and back. Our driver was excellent and I would highly recommend using him. Just want to point out we booked the car very last minute, I think the day before, and it could not have been more smooth or easy of a process!

Jeff and Andy made sure we saw and did all we wanted to do when setting-up our itinerary, through emails with us. The arrangements they made for our overnight flight to see the Terra Cotta Warriors, in Xi'an, were excellent. Our guide for that day was very friendly and informative. She made our day in Xi'an one of the highlights of our Asian trip. Our guide for our two days in Beijing, also named Jeff, was outstanding . He spoke excellent English and was very patient, never rushing us on our tours. He even arranged for us to see the Legend of Kungfu Show, meeting us that evening, arranging transportation and tickets, when we mentioned to him that we would like to see the show.
