Amazing tour with April
Helena_M, 03-01-2020
We had an incredible tour with April. I was worried that visiting both the Forbidden City and Great Wall of China in one day might be too much and perhaps too rushed given the distance. Nevertheless, due to the low season, there were hardly any queues or tourist crowds, and we spent a wonderful time walking around the imperial city and later on Mutianyu Great Wall.
April was very friendly, engaging and extremely knowledgeable about the sites we visited. I travelled with my 10yo daughter and April made the tour very interesting also for her and answered all of her questions in a very attentive way.
This tour exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend April!
Awesome Experience!

This was an excellent tour to see the three major points of interest in Beijing. Our tour guide, Susan, was excellent! Our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, and had excellent English. I been to many tours around the world and this one was one of the best ones I have been on. Having the private tour was well worth the premium over group tours. Our driver would drop us off close to the point of interest and would be waiting to pick us up. The Great Wall at Mutianyu is a great place to see the wall. We were in Beijing for only 48 hours, and this tour was the highlight of the trip.
Helen was amazing

A day at the Great Wall and Forbidden City with Helen!

Wow!!! It was an amazing bright and sunny day on June 29th, 2019. Yes, the sky was clear and sunny when we visited the Forbidden city and theGreat Wall. Saturday’s are considered a busy day, but our guide Helen planned the tour in a way so that we avoid unnecessary waitings and getting stuck in the crowd.
Helen made the tour so easy with the two kids, wife, and myself by giving us a full history with fine details from start till the end. Her English was fluent as it can be...
the kids and the wife enjoyed every bit of the trip which means Helen has fulfilled our day with full satisfaction.
These two places are must see tourist places in Beijing and it is best to see it with the greatest, Helen.

Helen, thank you for the awesome and memorable trip in Beijing.

Fun Private Beijing Tour with Susan

We had the pleasure of doing this private tour with Susan. She was a fabulous guide, fluent English speaker and made sure our tour was not only very informative but also memorable and fun. We especially enjoyed the Great Wall - it was snowing while we were there and we got some beautiful pics. Our little group ranged in age from 22 to 87 (!) and Susan did a masterful job of keeping everyone interested and engaged. She also went out of her way to do some extra things (which we really enjoyed) that were not listed as part of our tour. I highly recommend Susan and this tour of Tian’anmen Square, Forbidden City and Great Wall to anyone planning a trip to Beijing.
