Oh my gosh! Angie is an AMAZING tour guide!
Dec 2019
My friend and I took both group tours and private tours. We explored all over the city and to the wall. We were pleased with all our tours but then our last tour was with Angie. OMG! What a difference a FABULOUS tour guide makes! She clarified and corrected information we had been given on other tours (or our understanding of it). She completely modified our private tour to do exactly what we wanted to do, as we had already seen and done so much, we wanted to focus on other things. She was flexible, responsive, and super helpful. She helped us navigate some tricky situations (problem at the hotel, needing to cancel our final tour, and assisting with shopping) that we could not have managed without her. She chose a delightful spot for lunch and we all ate well. We learned so much from Angie and were so pleased to hear from her about so many different topics of interest to us. I feel like we made a real friend in Beijing!

Our favorite tour in Beijing!
Dec 2019
Our guide, Angie, made our day exceptional! She was prompt to meet us, professional, spoke beautiful English and adapted the tour to our needs. Her depth of knowledge about the tour sites was impressive and accurate. She kept a leisure pace, answered our many questions, took our photos, ordered a delicious Peking Duck lunch at a local restaurant and shared her favorite sites with us. When you miss your guide at the end of the day, you know you've also made a friend.

Tour of china
Not knowing how to speak the native language was a bit scary. So my partner and I decided to book a private tour guide. She was on time, spoke very good English and had lots to share about China’s history. When booking my excursion I informed the tour company I did not eat pork ( religious reasons). When I met the tour guide I reminded her twice ( when we met at the hotel and before lunch )that I didn’t eat pork. With lots of waking on the tour, by the time lunch came around she took us to a nice restaurant. She looked through the menu and ordered for us. Unlike the other private tour that took us to a buffet (different tour guide )she went through the menu and picked food for us. When the food got to the table I asked what it all was. Half of the food she picked I couldn’t beat because the dish had pork in it. Considering I spent over $400 for the tour, I was upset. I told her that I can’t eat this, and she said I could eat the other items instead. To me it looked and felt like she picked and chose her favorite dishes without considering my food limitations. And for that I gave a two star. I spent way too much of my hard earned money to have an unsatisfactory private tour.

Hi Dear Viator Customer, I am sorry to know that you had a bad experience with the dish selections our guide offered. First of all, we sincerely apologize to you. And we had informed every guide to be careful with customers' special requirements on food. Actually, for a lot of restaurants in Beijing, it is a common practice to put a little bit pork in some dishes to make the flavor better; even though it is not mentioned in the menu. Anyway, it is our fault and we will double check whether the dishes we order have something our customers are allergic to in the future. Thank you for the detailed review. Bruce Li from Wikibeijing

Insightful and well paced
Nov 2019
My husband, parents, and brother took this tour on Saturday 11/2. Pickup was prompt with communication the night before to confirm. Our guide Angie and the driver were both very courteous and professional. Due to a marathon in Beijing that morning, Angie adjusted the order of the tour to ensure we made the most of our time despite road closures, etc. She was extremely knowledgeable and her presentation was informative and fun. My parents are older and she was always very aware of their pace and super patient. The lunch was AMAZING. Because we were slower we became delayed; she even beelined ahead of us on a rented bicycle to purchase our tickets to the Temple of Heaven before they closed sales. Highly recommend--we absolutely would go touring with Angie again!

Awesome tour with Serena

We had a wonderful tour with Serena. With our elderly parents, our guide Serena was extremely empathetic and patient. Her knowledge was spot on and she kept everyone engaged with her ever helpful attitude. I strongly recommend this tour as it was very comfortable and well managed.

Great intro to Beijing culture and history
With only a weekend in Beijing we booked this tour to take us to all the highlights. The monuments are large and you could easily spend 4 hours in each; however if you have limited time this tour is a great way to get a taste of each.

Our guide Angie was prompt, spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. We were very glad we booked this tour company. She was able to share little details with us about the monuments that enhanced our experience and understanding. And with such limited time we also appreciated having a driver (in a clean car with great AC) navigate us around the city. Lunch was fantastic in a non touristy spot.

We both agree we will need to return to Beijing in the future to explore more- and we would definitely book with this company again. Thank you Angie!

Great way to see Beijing in one day minus the Great Wall
We unknowingly visited Beijing during Golden Week so everything was extremely packed but Carrie modified our itinerary to get the most out of each place so we could see as much as possible. She was very knowledgeable about the history and myths of each and every place. We were able to see the Summer Palace and took a dragon boat from one part to another then we went to see the Temple of Heaven. We ate lunch and enjoyed the best Peking duck I have ever had (and I often eat duck). After lunch, we went to Tiananmen Square and then we visited the Forbidden City. She offered to take tons of photos of us during the entire tour.
