Fun, fast and knowledgeable guide. Did Forbidden Temple, tianmensquare and ate dumplings in 5 hours. May was really fun and did as fast as she could with thé little time we had. A bit pricey for the tour. Greetings tot May from thé three Belgian guys!
Outstanding airport transfer

Mark arranged for Driver Su to handle our airport transfer after the end of a very busy week. Our daughter had hurt her foot so we needed a little extra help, and the entire experience was smooth, easy, and very comfortable.

Will absolutely book again!
Great time to spend 7 hours stop over

I arrived at Beijing airport at 1pm and managed to get out around few minutes past 2pm. My tour guide Sherry was there patiently waiting for me and make me feel comfortable with her smile and greetings whilst holding my name. She then asked me what do I want to see and visit and I told her I only have 3-4 hours left so she tailored my visit so i can enjoy Beijing and be back for my 7:25 pm boarding time. She took me to Beijing city centre and was very helpful guiding and taking my pictures around. She was very informative and ensured that I will have good time. I recommend her as she was friendly and will make u feel safe and will ensure you will get back on time with your next flight✈️
Short and sweet

I only had a limited amount of time between flights from Beijing. I decided to get out of the airport and see some sights. I had booked this tour in advance because it gave me a chance to see Beijing. Most layover tours need at least six hours not including the time it takes you to go through customs before you even get out of the airport. I had a nine hour layover so my best option was a 4 hour tour. Mark provided this for me. He was punctual to the airport and easy to find. I had two specific places l wanted to see: Tiananmen Square and Beijing Zoo (esp. the panda enclosure) Mark made sure l saw both of these. He chose the subway rather than driving to avoid city traffic. I didn't have to worry about anything. He bought the tickets l needed, and came with me on each train. He was friendly and polite and we conversed on the journey. His English is very good and his knowledge of Beijing is fantastic. He was very informative. We even stopped for a hot drink at a little cafe to warm up as it was minus 3 degrees outside. When it was time to leave, he came with me to the last train which was the one back to airport and made sure l got on safely. The timing was perfect. Mark made sure l got back without having to rush or panic. I can't recommend him highly enough. Thanks to Mark l was able to see some of Beijing instead of being stuck at the airport. Just remember it takes about an hour to get through customs and an hour each way from the airport to Beijing and return. This is why the flexible 4 hour tour was perfect for me. Thank you so much Mark.
Excellent tour, with great commentary from Jerry

My girlfriend and I had a long layover in Beijing and wanted to see the city. We booked this service to have the flexibility to fit with our layover - we went for an 8 hour tour (getting in and out of Beijing airport takes a while due to visas and its enormous size).

Our guide, Jerry, met us at the exit gate in the airport, was very friendly, spoke English well, and provided loads of interesting commentary on Bejing, Tiananmen Square, different types of Chinese tea, local parks, and the Forbidden City (our highlight was getting kicked out to make space for a foreign dignitary who was visiting - hilarious! Jerry managed to squeeze in a few local tips on how to manage the soldiers).

Overall I'd really recommend this. Jerry, our guide, made what otherwise would have been a potentially confusing experience (I don't speak Chinese) super easy and much more meaningful because he was able to explain things, give a bit of a window onto how Chinese society had changed over the past 20 years (whilst also giving us information on the tourist sites), and get us through queues, as well as advising us on what the best things to see were in the short time we had.
