We visited Beijing in the spring of 2015. We were very fortunate to book our tours with Qing and her company Discover Beijing Tours. It was very easy to plan our trip via email and everything worked very well when we arrived. Given how crowded Beijing is, Qing and her driver seemed to always find the entrance with no line and we were able to see many sights each day. Our tour included meals and we dined in very local establishments that let you experience the real culture. I have just recommended them to a family member, and that is what prompted me to write this long overdue review. This a great experience for you time in China.

Our guide was Qing from Discover Beijing Tours. She had arranged for a van for our family of 7 members. Qing was an excellent guide. I have only praises for her wonderful personality. We all had a fun time visiting all the sightseeing spots in Beijing. If you are in Beijing and looking for a reliable tour guide, Qing is highly recommended.

China was such an unknown destination for me however our lovely guide, Becky, soon put our minds (and feet) at rest. With her skilled driver who did a u turn in the busy Beijing traffic on our first day and took us straight to The Great Wall because of the beautiful clear blue sky and the amazingly warm weather. My fear of heights and having to use the Gondola was again gently eased by Becky. The experience was so spectacular and I felt so exhilarated there that i could have hang glided down if i was allowed! Becky patiently waited while my husband wished to walk to the next gate. She knew the best places to take fantastic photos, was able to manage 2 cameras together, knew her history inside out ( she has a degree in 'Guiding'!) She was kind, informative, helpful in her advice of the best times to visit Shrines and Palaces, I could live at The Temple of Heaven, such a great experience seeing locals out exercising, sharing stories, doing calligraphy, dancing in the grounds. Apart from the major sites of The Forbidden City, Summer Palace and Tiananmen Square, she took us at our request to The Pearl Market, advised of best shopping options, Peking Duck Dinners and answered our questions with great knowledge and impeccable English. It was like travelling with a friend! She arranged a rickshaw ride through the Hutongs and cycled behind us so she could explain what was going on, followed by a gorgeous lunch at Quing's mothers house. This trip could not have gone better. Thank you so much Becky and we hope to come back one day!!!

This tour is HIGHLY recommended. We had a great time. This is the best way to see Beijing we have traveled a lot and this is hands down the best tour we have taken. Our guide Qing was AWESOME she spoke great English and was very helpful. She was flexible to do what we wanted she helped us negotiate prices on souvenirs she even ran a couple of errands for me as I needed to get something at the store. She picked great restaurants and great food. We had a good driver and nice clean car. We had all the water we could drink and our guide was extremely personable it felt like traveling with your family. If we wanted to go faster on some things and slower on others we could. The tour was totally flexible and we got very different insight to the culture. We did not have to go to any specific shops or tours and everything was included. This tour made everything easy especially if you are a foreigner and do not speak the local language. We had 4 days between business trips and we covered everything that we wanted and then some. It was an amazing experience and we made new friend. I would recommend the private tour you will see a lot more and really get a true feeling of the local culture!!

Hi,
we visited Beijing with a family of four with to boys 14 and 12. During the preparation of our visit we decided to go with Discover Beijing Tours. Some days after the event I have to say it was the absolute right decision.
Our tour guide Bella did a fabulous job. I was a bit uncertain, how it would be to spend 3 days with boys in Beijing who might have a different perspective of what a good trip might be.
But Bella just took all of us with her on a fantastic journey. The mix between the sightseeing, the history behind it and the little stories about life in China was just great. All of us had so much fun and the boys loved it as well.
I can only recommend to anybody to do the same and book Discover Beijing Tours for such a trip.
We already think about when we want to come back to Beijing and very clearly our tour guide will be Bella again!
