We hired this tour for our Honeymoon trip to the great wall, it could not be better. Lisa the tour guide was extremely good with us, she is an excellent guide and person, and she takes amazing photos. I would recommend this tour to anyone who goes to beijing

Jessie was great at providing the context and background to the sites we saw, as well as answering random questions we had about China and its history. The driver and car were excellent, lunch choices were very good and the tour routes were well thought through and very thorough. Jessie is very responsive on email and excellent to work with. I would sincerely recommend her!


We spent two wonderful days with Lisa! She really made Beijing for us, I cannot imagine doing it without her. Her English was perfect! She was not only knowledgeable on the history and places we visited, but she was so personable and kind. She always ensured to include our two kids, wanting them to understand all they were seeing and have fun. She took care of all the tickets, we just followed her lead. She always took pictures of us, so we actually have pictures of the four of us, and she always knew the perfect spots! The lunch places she took us to were some of the best meals we had on our trip! She gave us ideas of places to visit on our own, even giving directions to make it easier on us. Tours with Jessie was the first thing have ever booked through Trip Advisor and I was so impressed! I hope all future bookings on Trip Advisor will be as professional, trustworthy, and memorable.

We did 2 day private tour of Beijing with our family (kids 6 and 9). Lisa was phenomenal guide and would highly recommend. Great english, great knowledge and history of China and also really fantastic with our young kids. Also Lisa was great photographer with the iphone and knew all the best spots and angles to get the perfect photos. We did Great wall, summer palace, tiananmen square, forbidden city, temple of heaven, local hutong and acrobat show over 2 full days. They were great to work with and did really nice job of customizing the intinary to our our interests. Would highly recommend tours by jessie, they were really fantastic and one of the best tour guides we've hired in an country. Thanks for an incredible tour of Beijing!


This past Sunday my wife and I and two of our friends spent a fantastic day with Jessie as our tour guide. We visited the Great Wall at Mutianyu and the Summer Palace. Jessie's extensive knowledge of the sites and Chinese history in general made for a wonderful day. Both my wife and our friend Doris preferred the Summer Palace over the Forbidden City. I believe that this preference was due in large part to Jessie's guidance. I have traveled extensively and visited over 85 foreign countries and this tour with Jessie is one of the best I have ever experienced. I recommend her without any reservation.


We booked a private tour and Lisa was our guide for the whole day. Lisa planned everything and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour to The Great Wall and Summer Palace. Lisa was very friendly and provided us with a lot of information about Beijing and China. Being a private tour, the service was very personable and the pace is relaxed and flexible. High recommend booking a tour with Lisa!


In a private tour, I would expect the following: Personalized communication, not just general lecture. Relaxed schedule, not feeling rushed. Adjustable itenerary to suit personal needs. Truthfully, they nailed it all. Excellent service delivered by the guide, Lisa and the driver, Jack. Excellent inquiry and booking process attended by Jessie. If you are looking for hassle free tour, this is it!

We booked a two days private tour with Lisa, and we enjoyed both days very much with her. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, gave my teen daughter lots of history and background about the attractions we visited. Everything about Lisa and the tours are top notch, highly recommend it!


Lisa was our guide for the day. She spoke very good english and that was a big treat for us as we had many questions about China and the Chinese people. I would suggest not seeing more than 2 sites in one day as it is too rushed to do more than that.

I'm honestly not sure we could have navigated Beijing without Jessie. Our family of 4 only had 2 touring days in Beijing, and with the help of Jessie and her driver, we felt like we "did the city!" We did 2 day long tours with her (9-5pm) that included so much. My son (15) loved the acrobat show and the Old Hutong. My daughter (12) loved the Forbidden City. For me, it was the Great Wall with toboggan ride down. Husband loved the Summer Palace and the restaurants Jessie chose for us. We saw many other guides along our travels, and I was so thankful that we chose Jessie. She is personable, speaks perfect English, is a master at pacing, is exceptionally organized, arranged for transportation to and from the airport for us, and was really lovely to be around. A++ You won't regret hiring her. She's a gem.
