Beijing Tour Reviews

One day with Cathy

My wife & I made a short stop in Beijing before boarding a cruise in Port of Tianjin. We only had a one full day in Beijing and decided to get help from guide. Luckily, we found Cathy knowledgeable and charming young woman. Because we had a limited time se arrange a private car for our tour to visit two of the best Beijing attraction Forbidden city and Great Wall. We started with Forbidden City. Cathy pre-arranged tickets for us so we do not waste any time. Forbidden City is always crowded, but Cathy always found a great place for a view. She shared with us a lot of historical and cultural facts and emphasize interesting architectural details. After Forbidden City we left for a Great Wall Mutinyu. On our way Cathy told us the history of the great wall and its construction. Again, we did not need to wait. Everything was pre-arranged. We walked with her on the Great Wall to enjoy the view of the wall and surrounding mountains. On our way back to the Beijing we stopped for a late lunch also pre-arranged by Cathy at authentic restaurant not far from the wall. And that was her another great choice. O, and one more thing she her English is perfect

Flexible Family Tour

This was our first post-covid family tour bringing together 3 generations of 14 people, from the youngest aged 5 to the oldest aged 75. In spite of the challenges of managing a big group, it was generally well managed despite minor blips on the first day. Very impressed with Cathy’s versatility and flexibility to cater to everyone’s needs and preferences. Cathy has very good experience and was able to navigate the traffic wherever we went, and did not hesitate to tweak the plans to ensure we get the most of our trip. We were able to accomplish most that were planned out in our itinerary and she fully understood our objectives of introducing the Chinese culture and history to our children. Our family had an awesome time, took lots of pictures on the best spot recommended by Cathy, and brought home memories that we’ll cherish for a long time. Thank you, Cathy!
