My husband and I really enjoyed touring with Jeff over the course of two days. Day 1: wild wall hike. It’s pretty strenuous especially in 90 degree+ heat but the view and experience was extraordinary! Jeff knows his way around and kept us motivated . Be sure to bring water and light snacks! Day 2: Forbidden City and Summer Palace. Jeff was a font of information and shared the history in an engaging manner. We were game to learn the subway and he was helpful in getting us comfortable with the system. He also helped us use Didi (like Lyft/Uber). And, we had some great meals with him, too! Before and after our time together, Jeff was in good communication— having a What’s App— account helps— and he provided information and support even after our time together was over. He’s also great at taking photos!! We hope to reconnect with him on his next visit to the US. We highly recommend Jeff and his colleagues at Peek A Boo— they helped us make the most of our time in Beijing.

Returned from a visit to Beijing. Awesome city to explore. Stayed at Peninsula which is a really nice hotel. Jeff was our guide. Greeted us in airport and catered our every need. Fantastic all around. Knowledgeable, well spoken (English), energetic, kind, great with kids and most importantly, went out of his way to help, advise and feed us in great local restaurants (including tracking a misplaced iPhone of my oldest). Beijing with Jeff is highly recommended.

We had a quick 3-day visit to Beijing. Based on a co-worker's recommendation and online reviews we chose Peek-A-Boo. We booked a 4-hour Forbidden City/Jingshan Park/Tiananmen Square Tour for the afternoon of our arrival and then the 8-hour Wild Wall Hiking Trip for the next morning. Both experiences were OUTSTANDING! John, our tour guide the first day, was very knowledgeable and offered many interesting facts as we explored the city sites. The next morning Laura led us on the Wild Wall Hiking Tour. This was the highlight of our visit and very immersive. Laura was an amazing guide and her English was perfect! I highly recommend seeing the Great Wall this way over the more touristy section. If you do choose the Wild Wall Tour, be sure to have descent hiking shoes (boots not required), a long sleeve shirt, a hat and a small backpack (to help carry food and water). Laura provided hiking sticks and plenty of water and food for the picnic. We estimate that we hiked in total over 5 miles up and down the mountain and along the contour of the Wall. My wife and I are 60 years old and in good shape, so we had no difficulty keeping a good pace. Laura explained that she adjusts her speed and rest stops to accommodate the fitness of her clientele. We give Peek-A-Boo our highest recommendation!

My husband and I had 42 hours in Beijing as a layover home from another trip. We wanted to get the most out of our limited time, so we decided to hire a guide. Our experience with Peek-a-Boo tours was nothing short of amazing. From the moment we were in touch with Laura- she was very professional and helpful, to when we met Jeff our guide- everything was perfect. Jeff was absolutely incredible. Extremely knowledgeable, told great stories & always picked the best food for us. We cannot say enough about Jeff. He made our trip what it was and we are so thankful for him. Our driver was also wonderful & extremely friendly. I would book another tour with Peek-a-Boo in a second!

Peek-a-boo tours guide Jeff was more than we could expect! Knowledgeable, funny and very intens! We had a one day trip in Beijing, with the Hutongs, the Forbidden city and a holy Tempel! But the Wild Wall Walk was one of a kind! Though walk uphill in the start but so worth it - only us in the wild and the Wall and fantastic natur surrounding us! I will recommend these guys to anyone! Good information in front and no surprises!
