I was in China during the first week of August as part of a nine member delegation from Seychelles. We spent four great days in Beijing courtesy of Leo! There was never a dull minute with the guy. First he taught us some basic madarin and had us in stitches with tips on how to remember and pronounce words and phrases such as "thank you" and "you are welcome". He is a walking encyclopedia of Chinese history and uses humour to great effect. I will never forget the emperor with the 3000 concubines plus one wife or the dragon lady! Leo made our tour of The Great Wall, the Forbidden Palace, the Summer Palace and Tianamen Square such great fun. He also knows where all the great restaurants are and dishes out expert tips on negotiating tactics with vendors. If you want the best guide in Beijing, you want Leo!

We are from the USA, but live in Singapore. On our visit to China, we connected up with Leo for 2 days of a private tour. Saw the usual sights (Great Wall, forbidden City, etc). He made the trips fantastic with loads of facts, stories, and general banter).

He also took us to off the beaten path for inexpensive but tasty food. Finally, he was very flexible to our schedule.

Would use him again and recommend him to others.

We were visiting Beijing in 2014. Leo took us to the Forbidden City, he explained history of China really well for us and showed us great places. His English skills are excellent! The restaurant he arranged for us was delicious too. We had a fun time with Leo in Beijing! Thanks Leo!

Whilst we were living in Beijing, ( pre 2010) Leo arranged two trips for us. One was a camping trip to the Great Wall, with friends from England, the other was a cycling weekend with three other ex-pat families, all of us with children.
Leo is an excellent tour guide and I would not hesitate to recommend him. He understands the basics of a successful trip, for example providing or knowing where to go for food your family will eat.
He thinks of every detail, such as comfort stops, repair kit for bikes, and has all necessary to ensure you have a good trip. On our Great wall weekend, he provided great tents, clean, suitable bedding, cooked our dinner, provided the drinks we asked for.... On our cycling trip he organised a morning rafting.
He is knowledgeable about the area and the sights. He listens to what you want from your day/trip. He is aware of what may be safety issues. His English is excellent. He spends time with the kids and makes sure everyone is having a good time. He is punctual, and is basically a really nice guy to have as your guide.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Leo was our guide to Forbidden City and to Great Wall in Badaling. Tour was very vell organized - pick up at the hotel, almost everything was on time, very delicious lunch during the trip,... Leo is very friendly, communicative (very good English) with good sense of humor.

If you are going to spend few days in Beijing and nearby area, I highly recommend you to take tour guided by Leo!
