Great tour and great tour guide!

Booked this for the skip the line option. What a great surprise to find out a guide was included as well. Was able to speak with Cathy before going to China via wechat to prep and she provided our guide's name and we chat number so we could connect prior to our hotel pickup. Our guide Eva was amazing! She was so kind, patient, spoke great English, was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We went during a busy holiday when it was extremely hot and sunny, so Eva made sure we were always comfortable so we went at our own pace but still on time to ensure we continued to move forward to avoid the large crowds. I would definitely use this company again. And I hope when you do, your guide is Eva! Thank you
