Night Tour

The tour was fantastic, there is lots to see at night.

I would recommend this to anyone

The tour guide was especially great
Great Night Tour for Photographers and Tourists (and the rest of you folks too)
Scoutmaster936, 02-12-2019
I booked this tour to be able to photograph some of Beijing's incredible night views. I was not disappointed. Lucy hit all the highlights and knew exactly the right locations with the best perspectives. My wife, who is not a photographer, also enjoyed the tour which included a colorful night market. Lucy understood and spoke English very well and her driver knew how to negotiate the challenging Beijing traffic patterns. Great tour at a very reasonable price...if you are in Beijing, you owe it to yourself to see the city at truly comes alive visually!
Great way to get an overview of Beijing

The lights in Beijing are spectacular and Lucy and the driver were great. Early evening was spent in a bustling neighborhood at the end of the lake, and Lucy also took me into a quiet hutong and onto a rooftop terrace for a better view. Once darkness fell, we set out across the city, covering a lot of ground and with frequent stops to get out and look and take photos. It gave me a good overview of the city and there was plenty of time to chat, ask questions, learn more, while driving. I highly recommend.
Great tour with Jimmy!
MorganRy91, 30-09-2019
We had a PERFECT night tour with Jimmy! We cannot recommend him nor his tours highly enough. He did a brilliant job of communicating the culture and history of Beijing with his perfect English and kind, welcoming demeanor. Jimmy’s professional yet laid-back approach to his tours made it feel like we took the city night scene in stride - we enjoyed an authentic (beautifully lit) nighttime jaunt through the city at the perfect pace.
Perfect for my overnight stay

This tour was perfect for the few hours I had in Beijing. Pick up and drop off from Hotel very handy. It was a condensed tour providing a taste of some of the main attractions and I feel happy that I have seen some of the city. Beijing comes alive at night under the colourful LED lights. I would have liked a bit of time, or the opportunity to buy some street food and have a bit more of a look around the shopping mall. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are short on time. My guide was very knowledgeable and explained the histroy of the city very well.
