We worked with Jessie during our June trip to Beijing and would recommend her to you. We were initially disappointed as we had planned to tour with her for three days and, on the first day, she was ill. She was responsible and arranged for a substitute but we chose to tour on our own. When we did tour with her for two days, we found that she was pleasant, knowledgeable, and incredibly flexible. Her English is excellent and she does a great job of not only explaining the sites but also of explaining Chinese culture, customs and language. She mostly had us tour using buses and the subway which often saved time and money. When we asked her to take us to markets, she was great in helping us negotiate good deals. It was clear that we were in charge and she was there to make things easy for us. In no way were we led around on a prepackaged itinerary. To be clear, I don't believe that you need a guide for Beijing. There is a lot of English to help get around with and a good tour book has lots of information on the sites. However, a guide such as Jessie can really enhance the experience. You will not go wrong having her as your guide.
