Qing and her husband are a wonderful team! Our trip to Beijing would have been a completely different experience without them. They made logistics very, very easy.. For instance, at the Forbidden City, Qing's husband dropped us off at one entrance and then picked us up on the opposite side.. It was great! And most importantly, Qing has the ability to make all the sites COME ALIVE! She's a wonderful and captivating storyteller and gave meaning to everything we were seeing. Our only regret is that we couldn't take her to Shanghai with us - haha! Seriously, Qing is worth every penny and we highly recommend her!

We travelled to Beijing in December 2011 and the best thing about our trip was Qing and her husband! They looked after us from arrival at the airport to our departure by train to Shanghai. Qing's English is excellent and she is very knowledgeable about everything - from the historical facts of the city, to what is a good price in the markets, to how to keep teenagers happy! In fact she amazed us at how she was really able to engage our 14 and 16 year old in the history of each of the sites we visited, and now over a year later they still remember it and appreciate it. We contacted Qing before we left for China via email and she was very accommodating and happy to make an itinerary around what we wanted to do, which included a half days skiing and a trip to the hot springs afterwards! She took us to some amazing restaurants and shared so many interesting facts about historical and modern China. My whole family highly recommend Qing for her organisation, her professionalism and her sense of fun. Her rates are very well priced and made for an easy, comfortable memorable experience!

Back in 2006 i had the most unforgettable trip to China, and all the credit goes to Qing. She is passionate about history and travel, energetic and so down-to-earth friendly that i really felt as if i traveled with a friend. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and she is able to tailor her story-telling to your interests, be it a formal history lesson on a Ming Dynasty, or folklore stories about the secrets of the Forbidden City. She is very accommodating and flexible, and will take care of you, and will make your trip as luxurious, or simple as you desire. She is up for anything - a hike on The Great Wall, or an ice cream and people-watching at the city zoo. I had a great time discovering Beijing with her, and even got a chance to eat (and help prepare) the most delicious dumplings at her parents' house (which, by the way, is located in the historical area of Beijing known as hutongs). After Beijing, she booked us an overnight train and we went to Xian, which was another destination on my list. She guided me all the way, showing her extensive knowledge, and totally sharing my love for travel. Oh, and she also booked my flight to Shanghai. I had a great trip. Qing is very much a people person, she is intuitive, friendly, caring, knowledgeable, resourceful, and just a joy to be around. She has her own transportation van, so she can comfortably take you to attractions and to/from airport. Look. even 7 years later i feel compelled to write this review for her, that has got to be an indication! :)

Qing is a very good tour guide. Back in 2006, Qing was the tour guide for my customers from Europe and myself, and when my boss and his family were Beijing, Qing was also our guide, and her husband, the driver, we really had a great time.

We first used Qing in 2011 when a group of Cruise Critics visited Beijing on the Diamond Princess. Her tours were fantastic, relaxed and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We spent a wonderful couple of days with her.

We are visiting Beijing again next month and are using Qing's company again.... the dealings I have had up until now have been prompt and efficient. We will be using her for three days and it is quite a large group.

I would not hesitate to use Qing either in a small group or large group...
