Our family of 4 traveled to Beijing in January and we needed a tour since we were using the new 72-hr visa for China. Of all the tour operators we contacted, Kong was very responsive and provided the best tour for what we needed. I can't say enough about the service that Kong provided!! He gave us an amazing tour for 3 days in Beijing. He chose delicious restaurants, shared his knowledge of China, set up all the details of our stay, took us to all the main sights, and booked us excellent accommodations based on our budget. Plus his English is great and all-around he was a joy to be with. He provided door-to-door service every day in his nice, comfy minivan, including airport transfers. Kong was the kind of person that I thought, if we lived in Beijing, we could easily become friends with him and his family. We were sorry to say good-bye to him! We visited: Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, hiked Great Wall 2 hrs, Summer Palace, Hutong with rickshaw ride, 2008 Olympic Park, pandas at Beijing Zoo, and Chinese Tea Ceremony. Kong was very conscientious about making sure we were enjoying our tour and was willing to change plans as needed to make sure we saw the sights we wanted.

I spent two days touring Bejing with Kong and Violet with four in our party. Their vehicle and driving is excellent. They took us to lunch both days, helped us order and taught us alot about asian customs. We toured the forbidden palace, summer palace and great wall. Our two days were wonderful, I do not hesitate to recommend them. Enjoy the experience, it's the best!

We were so lucky to have Kong Lin as a driver and Linda as our tour guide. Linda is friendly, sweet, knowledgeable on the history & a very caring person. We learnt a lot about Beijing from Linda. We also want to thank Kong Lin, our driver, who provided us a comfortable rides.
We can only give our best recommendation to hire Kong Lin as driver/guide in Beijing.
Thank you!

We hired Violet and her husband Kong Lin for three days. I want to state before I start that we spent months deciding whether to have a guide or not and then which guide to take. We trawled through post after post on TA and thorn tree. Coming into a country, where we spoke little of the language, it gave us peace of mind to have a guide to negotiate and organise us. We found both were polite, spoke excellent English, informative and funny. We felt safe and comfortable in their presence.

Day 1 – Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven
We thought we had left early, but there were so many people. We didn’t expect so many Tour groups etc. Seeing all the people being herded into groups, some being told off because their lines weren’t straight, made us really appreciate that we had Kong Lin there to guide us. Great sights – all recommended.

Day 2 – Summer Palace, Birds Nest, Cube,
Def worth seeing the Summer Palace, an amazingly beautiful place. The Olympic facilities, we spent maybe 10 minutes.

Day 3 – Great Wall Mutianyu, Lama Temple
Well worth going the extra distance. We spent an hour or two or more up there. We never felt rushed and enjoyed just taking our time walking on the wall. And you must take the toboggan down – heaps of fun!

In march 2012 we hired KonLin (after reading reports in trip advisor) to drive four of us to the Great Wall in his mini van which was extremely comfortable. We had email communication before the trip and everything was arranged perfectly. Service was prompt and in a country where few people speak english it was a relief that there were no communication problems
He spoke very good english and explained sites that we saw on the way. He also showed us sites arounf Bejing arranged tickets to the Acrobats for us but after the day out my elderly parents we were too tired and so cancelled which was no problem for KongLin.
A few days later we had to be at Tianjin for a cruise and decided to book KongLin and Violet to drive the four of us there. We were lucky we did as our hotel did not have a record of our booking and no one spoke english. It was thanks to KongLin that we managed to get a room for the night.
When we go back to China I would definately get Kong Lin and Violet to show us around other sites.
