Lucy was such a great guide! This was my second day of a 4 week trip and one of the most memorable days! Lucy was very knowledgeable and enhanced the visit to the Longqing Gorge and Ming Tombs. She took us for a delicious lunch as well!
Nice break and something different from Beijing

We had a great time and enjoyed doing something outside the city. Especially since some attractions were closed due to an upcoming country holiday. This was probably one of the best tours we had, especially because were NOT taken to any pearl, jade or silk store!

Jimmy (the travel guide) made all the difference. He was punctual, attentive, and knew his history. Jimmy, if you read this, thank you for everything! You made all the difference and you were one of the best guides we had in China.
A refreshing break from the City

The trip to the Gorge was scenic and unforgettable and the cooler mountain temperatures are welcome this time of year. Jimmy has real insight into the history of the Ming dynasty and a range of other interesting topics. I strongly recommend this tour.
