Sherry did a fantastic job showing us some of the best and most important sights in Beijing. She had already booked tickets in advance and was able to help navigate us through various gates and QR codes, which made the tour much smoother, and she was extremely knowledgeable, interesting, and friendly. Seeing these sights was at least twice as enjoyable because she was there to explain them and make conversation with us. I strongly recommend a tour with Sherry. We had a great time at Christmas because of her.…

When life gets back to normal and you want to explore Beijing Jerry will take care of you. He was great, informative and caring. Anything we wanted he looked after us. Even helped with some extra “post” after too much shopping. I traveled with my mother as a catch up and just wanted an easy trip and this was awesome. Jerry is the best !!…

We were met by our guide Sally at our hotel who outlined what we would do that day. Then it was off to Tiananmen Square followed by the Forbidden City. We then set off to see the Great Wall stopping for lunch enroute in an excellent local restaurant where Sally suggested our delicious menu selection. We avoided the market at the Great Wall and then onto the cable car to the wall itself. Sally stayed with my wife whilst I set off to walk the wall. Sally took us back to our hotel contented after a long, but very interesting day.…

My partner and I really wanted to see the Summer Palace in Beijing so we organised this half day tour not knowing if half day would be enough. Our guide Lisa met us in the lobby of our hotel and we travelled to the Summer Palace. Lisa walked us through the Summer Palace and explained it's history and the significant figures in the Chinese Royal Family who had occupied it's walls and what its purpose was. The Summer Palace was fantastic and Lisa was friendly and informative which made our experience there memorable. Thanks Lisa for a great time at the Summer Palace.…
