Booked two days boutique tour and lucky us, Susie was our guide! She is so nice and knowledgeable of everything! We went to the Great Wall and all Beijing local attractions like Forbidden City and Tianamen Plaza. The cherry on the cake was lunch the second day as she took us to eat Peking duck in a local restaurant. It was simply spectacular! For those who will be guided by her, be aware she’s simply The best!

Excellent 2-day tour to cover the “must see” landmarks of Beijing. The tour guide Linda was very friendly and helpful, she offered to take multiple pictures and answered any questions. Both lunch restaurants had very good authentic Chinese food. Drivers on both days were great too. Overall I highly recommend this trip.

We had a great time with our tour guide Cactus on this tour. The tour group was only 6 people and the tour was very well organized. Cactus was very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient and everyone really enjoyed chatting with her and asking questions throughout the 2 days. The lunch provided was also great on both days, highlighting a wide range of dishes. Would definitely recommend this tour with Cactus for anyone traveling to Beijing.
