Quick guided tour of Beijing

Linda was fabulous! We could not have had a better guide. Our stay in Beijing was very short, only a partial day, but Linda made the most of our time. She gave us an excellent tour of the Forbidden City, and still managed to take us to 2 great street food places, which the kids really wanted to experience. The hot pot food was amazing! Linda, thank you so much.

Transit Visit to Beijing

Linda, our tour guide, wanhis a most welcoming host to Beijing and China, especially in the confusing flurry of travel schedules, visas, and documents. We only had a 6 hour window during our transit to get a glimpse of Beijing, and Linda helped us make the most of it. This would be our one and only time to see China (and my original family roots). Her English was very understandable, her comprehension of the questions that we asked was very evident, and she knew most of the answers. She gave us little facts about the architecture of the Forbidden City that gave is insight to what it was like in Imperial China. She also answered personal questions about life in present-day China. As it was a cold, breezy day, she even helped to keep me warm by insisting on wrapping me up in her own scarf. The transport to and from the hotel also eased our minds, since we could leave our carry-ons with the driver. Everyone in our family was quite impressed with her skills. Afterwards, she gave us a little foodie tour of her personal favorites, which in and of itself was a highlight. If you have a layover in Beijing, this tour is well worth every penny, and this company is very lucky to have a guide such as Linda representing it.

Lucy was highly informative and it was a pleasure to spend time with her on my private tour. I saw the Forbidden City, rode a rickshaw through the Hutong, ate dumplings and even rode the subway!
Thank you so much Lucy - I would highly recommend Lucy to anyone.
