    My guide Lucy did a wonderful job and I was able to tour Tian’anmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Hutongs and the Temple of Heaven as well as going to a tea shop and do some shopping in one 8-hour day of touring, all while giving an outstanding perspective on Chinese history and contemporary life.

    Do not hesitate, we just loved Peggy our guide. We wanted a glimpse of local life in Beijing and it wasn’t a must for us to go to the major attractions. Peggy walked with us in the old hutong area and made us taste local foods. It was a great day!

    Roy was a fantastic guide and I would recommend him for anyone that is traveling to Beijing. He listened to what we wanted and was very helpful. Also he took us for a local lunch that was fantastic, we would not have to gone that place without a local showing it to us.
