Ryan was professional, knowledgeable, punctual, helpful, and thoughtful. He went above and beyond tour-guiding and helped us find the right kind of ATM. He also took us to a great local restaurant for lunch.

My twin brother and I had a great day with Ryan, visited Mutianyu Great Wall, Summer Palace, and took photos of Bird Nest stadium. He was 20 minutes late, but totally understandable because of the crazy morning traffic (he actually had got out of home 2 hours before the meeting time!). Ryan was nice, friendly, and very knowledgeable about Beijing,... More

Just got back from Beijing and had a phenomenal time with Ryan showing us around. Not only did he help us to overcome the English-Chinese language barrier, but he also took us to local restaurants and shopping areas and showed us the top sites within a limited amount of time. Ryan was very knowledgable about China's history, and proved to... More

Ryan was recommended to us by a friend, who knew we would appreciate someone like him. He took us to the Great Wall at Badalin and to several museums, notably the Museum of Chinese Literature. Like with many other guides, he cared for taxi hiring and opening hours, and got it all working. What deserves a fifth star is that... More

Ryan is a very knowledgable guide with good English. We spent one day in Bejing and one hiking on the great wall. Discuss your budget with him in the beginning- he is great a saving you $$ but you need to let him know if you want a little more comfort.

I was very lucky to be on tour with Ryan for two days. He took me out to the Great Wall, the Ming Tombs and to the Marco Polo Bridge (Lougou bridge as is the chinese name). Ryan organised everything, car, water, tickets etc. He was going to great lengths to explain to me the history of the Wall and... More

Ryan was an amazing tour guide. We could have asked for a better guide. He is fluent in English, attentive, knowledgable, friendly, and overall just a great guy to spend the day with. We took a one day tour with him to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. Unlike many other tours we were considering, he does not take... More

I was introduced to Ryan by a girlfriend who was guided by Ryan before. We met Ryan at our hotel for a day trip to the Imperial Palace. He was about five minutes late but he took the trouble to text us about the time and that set pretty much the professional tone for the rest of the day. Being... More
