We did a 2 day tour with Qing to the major attractions in Beijing. She is an amazing tour guide! She is personable, knowledgeable and has great stories. There was no way we would have been able to see everything we did in just 48 hours if we hadn't booked with her. You get a lot of value for what you pay, plus I really appreciated being picked up from the airport. She knows a lot about history and was very open to all my questions regarding China. She gave us great tips for the markets and for how to barter with the locals. In my opinion, no other way to do Beijing! Fabulous tour!

Qing is the only reason why I enjoyed my visit to Beijing. She showed us around for two days and we were able to visit the main attractions in a quick and simple tour. She is extremely knowledgeable and her English is very easy to understand.

The cost of the tour was appropriate for the quality that you receive. She responded quickly to our emails and answered all of our questions about Chinese culture and traditions.

Qing is very talented and deserves high praise for her abilities. I have already passed her name along to my friends and family as the best guide in Beijing.

We did our tour with Qing for 3 days and it was a great and unforgettable moment with reasonable pricing. Qing speak fluent English and is very good in explaining the history of the places we visited. She is friendly, helpful and go beyond her role to assist. During our last day in Beijing, she tells us where to shop at the local shop - Xi Dan and how to use the subway to reach the shop.

Besides that, the drivers are friendly and careful too. The vehicles used are clean and comfortable.

The local foods that Qing took us was nice as well, especially the homemade Zha-Jiang-Mian (by her mother-in-law.. thumbs up).

Thanks to Qing and her drivers for the memorable experience.

Qing is personable, knowledgable, and smart--a terrific guide. She has a very good grasp of history and is full of tasty anecdotes. She also spoke about what life is like for Chinese people in Beijing, which we found very interesting. She took us to hole-in-the-wall restaurants with terrific food. We all loved her.

My wife and I went to Beijing in 2008 and used Qing as a result of a reference from a family friend. Qing was absolutely fantastic. She was very flexible to our wants and needs and knew the ins and outs of how to get into and see the various tourist attractions around town at the best times or right entrances to minimize wasted time. She was very honest, which is difficult to find. She operates independently, which also means she didn't take us to any of those hokey pearl factories. We also hired her husband as our driver for a day for our trip to the Great Wall. It was a fun experience and we enjoyed interacting with the two of them on our ride. If we ever get back to Beijing, we will definitely use Qing's services again.
