Leo was a great tour guide! He planned the trip well (ie: avoiding traffic jam, etc) which made it went very smoothly. He explained a bit about the Great Wall and China history along the way. Leo was also accommodating to our requests to stop for lunch before heading back to hotel. Besides the tour, Leo also provide ticket booking for Peking Opera and Acrobatic show.

Beijing is HUGE, and when you have limited time, it's difficult to make the most of what Beijing has to offer. Leo understood this and took us to the best that Beijing has to offer - Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace. Many of our fellow tourists say that you need at least a day for the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace so imagine having to do it all in one day.

Leo took us to the best of each of these places without cutting any corners. During the tour, he walked with us and told us all the back stories of each attraction, with a very cultural and local twist; which is truly a masterstroke. He translated many of the Chinese text on the attraction and told us how locals viewed each place. It is comforting to know, for example, that retirees visit the Temple of Heaven to play cards as a way to pass the time. He truly brought Beijing to life.

Also, when we liked something during the tour (a tea set), Leo spoke to the manager and arranged for it to be delivered to our hotel after the tour so we don't have to lug it around with us as we visit each attraction. No that's personal service!

I am from Indonesia. Went to Beijing with my wife and a friend in early November 2014. With all stories about tour scams in Beijing made us afraid to go anywhere far from the hotel. Then I got recommendation to take a one-day tour to Great wall and Ming Tomb which guaranteed by the hotel that the tour guide would not force us to buy anything. Even with a doubt, we managed to take it. Turned out it was very pleasant tour! Leo didn’t do as we afraid of. His knowledge about china history is awesome, Leo knows the details and tells the story in a fun way. Never looked tired answering repetitive questions from his group. Unlike other local people in beijing, Leo speaks english perfectly, very fluent and clear pronunciation. What we liked, even though we were in a group of 16 people, it felt like we were in a private tour! I will absolutely recommend him to all my friends who are gonna go to Beijing.

We had two days to explore Beijing with Leo as our guide. He is very punctual, communication was clear and he speaks perfectly english! He is flexible about the schedule and our wishes; we saw the great wall, summer palace, temple of heaven, tianemensquare, hutongs and old beijing, silk factory, jade factory, forbidden city and much more. The transport he arranged was perfect (mini-van with safe drivers) and the included lunches were of high quality as well. Leo knows a lot about history and told us many stories I will never forget: the emperor with his concubines and the dragon Lady! Furthermore, he helped s out with advice about the best peking-duck restaurant and helped us with getting a chinese simcard and arranged a shuttle to the train station. Leo made our Beijing experience terrific, would highly recommend Leo as your tour guide!

Leo speaks fluent English and is a knowledgeable tour guide. He was able to be fun, while giving the group members space to explore on their own. We toured Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, and the Summer Palace. After our tour, he explained the subway system to my friend and I, which really helped us navigate Beijing the rest of our trip!
Highly recommend Leo as a tour guide!
