Qing was my tour guide and so helpful and accommodating from when the tour was booked. She is very knowledgeable abs shared a lot of information and stories about both locations. Highly recommend!

This tour was exceptional. Qing was very knowledgeable and funny. We enjoyed listening to her a lot, as she did not talk about the historic events as a series of numbers. She rather told stories.
Nice trip

Perfect day on the wall!

Wow! What an amazing day we had with Qing, who took us to the wall and the summer palace. She told us awesome stories, gave us great tips for going around Beijing, took really cool photos (she knows all the best spots), and was so nice and professional. A huge thank you to her and our driver who made our short trip to see the wall 100% worth every penny. I can’t wait to come back and see more!

Qing & her team were very easy to work with- Qing was our tour guide, translator, photographer, & provided transportation from our hotel to both locations. She made our tour a memorable learning experience & we are glad we chose to work with her & Discover Beijing Tours. We would definitely book Qing again when we return to Beijing!
