“Awesome time in Beijing with Pau and Daphne!”

Daphne Chen Tours- Day Tour
Ranked #11 of 145 Outdoor Activities in Beijing
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 5, 2013

There were 4 of us, two married couples, and the husbands were in charge of planning. Week away from trip, nothing booked. Looked on tripadvisor.com, emailed a few companies for private tours, and Daphne was the first to respond! Fortunately for us, she has able to accommodate us on such short notice! We emailed back and forth throughout the week with changes and questions about the itinerary and every time she would respond to us almost immediately and was very flexible with our travel plans! The first day, we had Pau, and he took us to the Great Wall and Ming Tomb. He was awesome! Second day, Daphne took us to the Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Olympic Park, and an acrobatic show. We had a wonderful time! Highly recommended! Thanks Daphne and Pau! We miss you guys!

Four of us hired Daphne for the full-day tour of the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tianamen Square, and the acrobat show and were thrilled with everything. Daphne was absolutely wonderful and more than made the trip! She speaks great english, has a ton of historicaly knowledge of each site, and throws the occasional joke in there to keep everything fun and up beat. I strongly suggest hiring Daphne to guide you through Beijing as she's fantastic!

The only comment on the tour is that doing everything we did in one day is very tiring and probably too much to do. If we had to do it over we would have spread it across two days!

Otherwise, wonderful experience!

We were two families, with a total of five kids in all age ranges. Nine in total. Daphne put together two full great days for us. She was very thorough, very kind, and VERY knowledgable.

We recently visited Beijing for 8 days as a family of 6 whose members ranged in age from 5 to 65 - needless to say, not everyone was 100% comfortable with their surroundings. By far, the best three days we spent in Beijing were with Daphne. She is smart, engaging and has a great sense of humor. Not only did she educate us but she also entertained us and it was clear that she really cared about our comfort and safety. We wouldn't book a trip in Beijing with anyone else! We hope that someday she'll let us return her kindness by visiting us in the US.

Just returned from an April 2013 trip to China. First stop with four days was Beijing. Daphne was our guide arranging transportation, tour, lunches and provided five star service. I will use Daphne on any future trip and recommend her highly. I can not imagine Beijing without her. She speaks English so well, shares wonderful information and history, plans interesting stops and incorporates fabulous Chinese restaurants into the plan. She easily accommodated our request for an additional stop. Our trip went so smoothly and in part because of the pre-planning and quick response emails she sent. We arrived knowing that our plan was well established. Daphne is the best tour guide we have ever used - anywhere.
