My wife and I traveled from San Jose California to Beijing for vacation to tour Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden city and the Great Wall of China.

Lucy picked us up from the Hotel 15 minutes early. She is very friendly and knowledgeable, answering our questions about different sites on the way to our tour. Not only is she knowledgeable but, very enthusiastic and proud of her country.

She provided lunch on the way to the Great Wall. The buffet setting was extremely nice with a good variety of food.

Lucy, thank you once again for such an eventful day.

The tour was amazing, especially...

The tour was amazing, especially that I was the only one who booked this tour, so they made it a private tour. The guide was wonderful! The Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City was quite crowded for me, but they took me that part of the Great Wall where I could enjoy the view and there were only a few people around. Thank you!
