“Pau was great!”

Daphne Chen Tours- Day Tour
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Went on a two day tour with Pau. He was an excellent private tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable on all history and flexible to change anything on the tour as you wish. He speaks great english and truly made our trip to Beijing a memorable one. Highly recommend him!

My husband and I have traveled to at least 10 Asian cities in 5 countries in the past three years. By far the most interesting, perky, funny, and entertaining guide was Daphne. Her command of the English language was excellent, and her ability to share our American sense of humor made wandering through Beijing effortless. She was on time each morning and was as enthusiastic as if she was seeing each site for the first time. We saw the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Sq., The Summer Palace, went to a Hutong, shopped, and ate at fantastic lunch places she'd chosen. I plan to recommend her to everyone I know who is thinking of going to China.

Highly recommended! We are two friends trying to see as much of the world as we possibly can. In Beijing it's strongly advised to get help and knowledge from a guide. You can find hundreds of Beijing guides online, but since a guide can make or break a tour, we did our best to find a good one. After having read the reviews for Daphne, we decided to work with her and haven't regretted it one bit. She's 'ad rem', funny and dares to look at things through modern glasses. She immediately understands your questions and why you would ask them. She also gladly arranged train tickets for us. Thanks again!

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!
