    Lucy was an incredible host! She shared so much knowledge about Chinese history and culture that the time flew by — I’d highly recommend her and this tour.

    This tour is good if you have a short time in Beijing and want to tick these three off in a fairly 'hands-off' tour style. We were taken to a pearl shop and chinese medicine school but were in no way pressured to buy anything (and the foot massage was lovely - worth the 5 cny for sure)

    This tour is a really useful way of navigating the huge and impressive 798. Linda was a well prepared, friendly, knowledgeable guide who led us through the most interesting galleries in the zone. 798 itself is well worth a full day for those interested in art. Most galleries are free to visit, while some charge a 5-10 RMB entrance fee.

    My partner and I really wanted to see the Summer Palace in Beijing so we organised this half day tour not knowing if half day would be enough. Our guide Lisa met us in the lobby of our hotel and we travelled to the Summer Palace. Lisa walked us through the Summer Palace and explained it's history and the significant figures in the Chinese Royal Family who had occupied it's walls and what its purpose was.

    The Summer Palace was fantastic and Lisa was friendly and informative which made our experience there memorable.

    Thanks Lisa for a great time at the Summer Palace.

    The best food tour we took in China. Our guide was Celia who met us at the entrance to the Metro. We found her to be very friendly, fun and quite knowledgeable about her city and its food. We first grabbed some takeout dumplings with skin so thin you could see thru it and brought them to a loud and authentic Mongolian hotpot place. The lamb and vegies were all good. From there it was onto an upscale rice wine bar for some delicious wine sampling. Yum!!!! Then onto donkey burgers - like small hamburgers except sweeter. She also introduced us to a favorite couple of street foods - one a crepe with fried tofu skin - out of this world and Mongolian yougert with honey. I would eat both of them every day if I could. After that we ate biang biang noodle soup with pork belly and vegies - good and the last was an old gambling den converted into a chicken wing place with fiery hot fried chicken wings. By the time we were done I was stuffed with great food and we were sad to say goodbye to Celia who was a terrific food guide! Do not miss this food tour! It is great!!

    With Helen's commentary and guidance, we really enjoyed our tour of the square and the forbidden city. It was bitterly cold (-4c) and helen adjusted our tour to suit our interest and even found all the areas with sun to warm us up. She really knew her history and didn't bore us at all. We loved hearing about all the little details like the lion statues and the rooftop figurines. Definitely recommended and thank you Helen!

    My girlfriend and I very much enjoyed the tour of the forbidden city! It started by walking through the Tiananmen Square, where Lucy gave us a lot of history of the country and the government that was relevant to the buildings around us. We then entered the Forbidden City and it’s really something you have to see for yourself! (As an added bonus with a Lucy we didn’t have to wait for security which easily saved 30 minutes). Lucy was constantly engaging us with history, stories, anecdotes, and much more. She also knew the best spots for pictures! It was a lot of walking and we didn’t want to stop! Thank you to Lucy, make sure to choose her for the best private tour you can get!
