After communicating with four guides we chose Rayan and no regrets at all. He arranged a car pick up, excellent , train tickets to Xian, and 3 of the most wonderful days In Beijing of our three week trip to china . Beijing has 30 million habitants and 200 million tourist per year., yes 200 million,no kidding, check it out. We went to areas and restaurants in Beijing we would never have found by ourselves (hot pot restaurant,fantastic,duck restaurant mouth watering,) .you need a guide to get 100 percent of Beijing. Rayans english is perfect , his historical knowledge about the city is vast, he is intelligent, polite and very flexible,nothing is too much for him (the kids loved him). We saw all the main sights,with detailed history. we went to the great wall ,and rayan walked with us all the way while pointing out
interesting details to look at and telling interesting stories .(we noticed most of the other guides don't walk the wall with their clients) and we walked a long way on both the direction , after he took us to a fresh trout restaurant, where they catch the fish in front of you from a big pond,delicious.Choosing the right vacation spot is an important decision. Choosing the right tour guide is an even bigger decision. Don't leave your vacation to chance, choose Rayan. let rayan be your gate way to Beijing, to China, you won't regret it. Thanks Rayan

I highly recommend Ryan to anyone who needs a little extra help acclimating to China and/or who is interested in learning a lot about China's culture and history.

Ryan is very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun to tour with in Beijing. And it is clear that he enjoys his job, because of the extra attention he provides. He went above and beyond what we expected in terms of helping us get tickets/reservations and continuing the tour far past the 8a-5p we expected.

He planned everything for us and helped make our trip very memorable and stress free!

Thank you!

We were very lucky to have Ryan Chao as our guide for 3 days on our recent trip to Beijing. Ryans 3 day tour incompasses all the must see sights as well as being flexible enough to include extra requests if there is something your specifically want to see such as the Giant Pandas. Ryans history knowledge was exceptional but it was also his willingness share his thoughts on the China of today that really made our time enjoyable and informative. The time we saved by having Ryan guide us when using the subway and also purchasing admission tickets was invaluable. Also the places he chose for us to have lunch at were all excellent and allowed us to have an authentic Chinese food experience. We appreciated the fact that Ryan participated in all activities including walking the Great Wall on a very hot summers day, it would have been very easy for him to send us on our way and be waiting on our return but we would have missed so much that he pointed out and talked about along the way. Ryan is a charming young man and was great company as well as a terrific guide. We would highly recommend Ryan to any travelers wanting to make the most of their visit to Beijing.

Did a day trip to the great wall with Ryan followed by a hot pot dinner in Beijing. Both were fantastic! Ryan does a great job of planning all details or your trip. He negotiated well on our behalf to get us good transport and entrance prices and was knowledgeable about the places he took us to.
Would highly recommend him and book him again next time!

We hired Ryan Chao for our tour. He was everything we hoped for an more. WE have three kids under age six so it was quite a challenge. Ryan was excellent in adapting to the kids. The greatest part of the tour was Ryan's very open commentary on China today. We learned much more than one would ever get from a book or travel guide. His English is excellent, he let us do our thing, adapted to us, never pushed anything on us. Best tour guide we had anywhere. David Gorman
