Date: Nov 25/19

Susan can tell the stories of Beijing's history with the best of them. My friend and I hired her for a tour of the Great Wall, easily the highlight of our trip, and the Summer Palace. We had a cold but clear and sunny day and she was able to weave past and present with the wealth of information at her fingertips plus she took numerous photos of us. Make sure you allow her to arrange lunch - easily the most memorable meal of my trip! Highly recommended.

Susan is an amazing lady and she made me feel that I was at home in Beijing. I deeply immersed into the Chinese culture and I will be leaving Beijing with great respect and admiration for both Chinese people and culture.

Great tour with Susan. She was a wealth of historical information and often related experiences of her own family and its relationship to China's history. I would definitely book a tour with Susan again.

Excellent guide, highly recommend Susan! Susan did a great job taking me on a private day tour of Beijing and the Great Wall. She was knowledgeable, with excellent English, and was fun to be around. She also took excellent pictures. Since I had been to Beijing before, she made some suggestions about new things to see, and we ended up going to a section of the Great Wall I hadn't been to, which was an absolute highlight. Will definitely recommend Susan to friends and colleagues traveling to Beijing!

Susan is a FANTASTIC tour guide!! I never imagined there was so much to see in Beijing, and the moment Susan met us at the hotel she had us running all over town...knowledgable, full of history, and really knows the city - she became a member of our family instantly...and she has a great sense of humor as well!! We enjoyed her so much that we have given her an MTA subway card and an open invite to NYC. She made our trip possible, I am not sure how we would have gotten around without her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, William. I’m glad you like Beijing. Wish you always meet nice people in China. All the best to you :)

I've been to many places. My three day tour of Beijing with Susan was the best. Susan speaks fluent English. She has a great sense of humor. Susan has an intimate knowledge of Chinese history and can explain it on the tour extremely well. I learned a lot from Susan on my tour.

We spent a fabulous 2 days with Susan and saw everything we wanted to see around Beijing and she arranged it all perfectly, including a driver. In addition to the tour stops, at our request, we also saw a "discount" mall, silk factory, Olympic sites and local restaurants for lunches. She speaks excellent English, has a great personality and offered the right amount of history about the things we were seeing. It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend Susan and this tour. It was worth every penny!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kindness, David, I wish you and your family would visit China together one day. And I will take you around as my guest. All the best to you

Susan was a treat and honestly a great guide. We have traveled throughout China and mostly on our own, but it was amazing to have someone hold our hand through this adventure and who had some amazing suggestions and guidance along the way. There are simply times it is nice to have a local, who speaks the language a long for the journey. She made the day stress free and simply a fantastic day. To top it off, Susan has a warm personality, her English is fantastic and she has a great sense of humor.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. Paulette, it was such a pleasure to company u family. All the best !! Susan

We were so fortunate to find Su to lead us for the day. Perfectly pleasant and knowledgable, and found a way to share just the right amount of historical information and local stories without overburdening us. So many large tour guides talk at you, but Su was speaking "with us." She was thoughtful in caring for our 66 year old mother who needed a few accommodations throughout the day. As someone who has lived in China for many years, I can say unreservedly that she's the real deal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for your kindness. Andrew, wish Kathy great health and enjoy life. Hope you two all the best in the future.

My wife, myself and my son who lives in Shanghai and is fluent in mandarin visited Beijing for four days and took the decision to book a local tour guide Su and it was the best decision we ever made. Her organisation, diligence and care were exemplary. Nothing was any trouble, we skipped lines of people because she had everything organised. The driver she used was incredibly efficient and drove with care. I can not recommend Su highly enough. Thank you Su.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your encouragement. Bob. Best wishes to your kind families.

Susan was an excellent guide for our family when visiting Beijing. She was very professional and made our visits to all the sites stress free. She arranged skip the line tickets everywhere, which was super when travelling with three teenagers. She was knowledgeable and gave good insite to Chinese mindset, way of life and culture. Both present and historically. She also took us to some great eating places, which we had not been able to experience on our own. She spoke English perfect as well.

I travelled to Beijing with my family of 5 members and spent two full days with Susan visiting the city. She was great at adapting the tour to our needs and preferences and constantly gave us a lot of interesting information about the places we were visiting. She took us to many places, restaurants and neighborhoods only known by locals which was great. We travelled by taxi, metro, bikes and walking which was also a great experience. Susan's spoken English is fantastic. We highly recommend Susan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. Eduardo. All the best for your sweet family !

Thanks so much to Susan to make this trip unforgettable for me. If I could I would rate 10 stars. Susan arranged everything perfectly for me. Even with a full agenda you don't feel any rush.Timing is very flexible and if you want to enjoy longer some places she will manage and adjust. Susan is a very nice and supportive person in every matter for your perfect stay. Always on time and no waiting. Car is always very well maintained. The money I spend for the tour was definitely most worth it. Thanks Susan!

We were pleasantly surprised that such a fabelous tour could be booked at such short notice. We were in Beijing during a festival time, Susan did her best to avoid the immense crowd. Susan was very friendly and open minded, certainly a good example of China's new future generation. Our talks were inspirational. The driver was perfect, we hardly noticed him, which is a perfect sign. He drove very safely and the car was clean and spaceous. We'll be back again. It was superb!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. Poch. I was so impressed by your family stories as well which inspires me a lot. Best wishes for all of you. Especially Robin and Lala

AWESOME!!! Susan far exceeded our expectations each day of our trip! She took our "must see" list and crafted a fantastic itinerary for us to see all of Beijing during our trip. She arranged for us to see the top sights in and around Beijing AND also took us to places that most tourists never see. She picked the perfect places to eat and shop and attended to our every need. She's a wealth of knowledge about Chinese history and culture. Most importantly, she made us feel like family! We'll miss her!

Susan took our family (including kids) on a 2 day tour of Beijing. She arrived at the hotel on time, discussed itinerary with us and even asked us if we wanted to make any changes. Susan speaks fluent English, connects well with people and shows a lot of patience. She never tried to sell us anything or force us into going to a place we didn't want to visit. She is very helpful, even beyond your allotted trip.

The entire experience with Susan was wonderful from start to finish. 3 days is a perfect duration to see sites in Beijing plus the Great Wall, especially with very well organized guide. Susan took us to all the best spots (unhurried), her suggestions for places to eat were spot on. We saved a lot of time, much less lines to wait in as Susan handles all logistics. She was very flexible with itinerary which was nice. Very much enjoyed Susan's company and would highly recommend her. Definitely put her as #1.
