Susan was very accommodating with the two day we spent with her. She gave us an excellent overview of the key attractions and scheduled the day well. Her knowledge of the best times to visit the attractions also meant we made the best of our days.

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

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.
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

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. Arpan. All the best to your sweet family :)

Great 2 days with Susan. Very accommodating to all our requests and we were able to see everything we wanted with plenty of time to enjoy. She was great with our 2 children (15, 12) and was very knowledgeable about all stops.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for your nice review, Jacob. I will try all I could do to deliver a 5-star pleasant tour for your family if you would ever come here again. Peace and joy to you and your family.

Susan is PERFECT! EVERYTHING you'd want in a tour guide!! She is so knowledgeable, accommodating, easy to be with, flexible - I could go on and on. I have recommended her to friends and would use her again if I make it back to Beijing. I wish I could take her as my guide everywhere I go in the world - she's that good!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. Dear Sharon ;)
We had an absolutely fantastic time with Susan on our tour of Beijing. She was a wonderful guide. Her stories about the places we went to and sights we saw were fascinating. She was extremely flexible with the tour and always had our, and our two children's best interests in mind. Susan arranged a driver and car and we went from place to place with no problems at all. We have no hesitation in recommending Tours By Locals and specifically Susan to anyone who wants a memorable tour in Beijing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Michael and Lisa, your family impressed me a lot in the 3-day trip. You are such a lovely family that everybody would like to offer the best side of what we owned here for you. I wish everything Is going on perfectly in the future days.

Susan was absolutely wonderful in every way! I toured Beijing with Susan for two days and was able to see all the highlights and more! She was a delight to be with. Super friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable. Susan curated our tour to what we wanted to see and do. She was able to pivot when we wanted to make changes or when circumstances within the city made it better to shift our plans. She made sure we got everything we wanted out of each day. Personally requesting Susan is the way to go.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Karen. All the best for your life, family, and future career.

We have used ToursByLocals in different countries and we have never been disappointed. Susan was exceptional. We wanted a customized tour seeing local life style, cultural heritage and good food. Also entertainment for the grand children. From the beginning contact Susan's response and professionalism was just what we were looking for and we were confident with her approach. The quote was inclusive and there were no surprises. And our day with her was perfect. What a charming host. Perfect day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words, Andrew. I also enjoyed the time spent with you and your sweet families. You are an encyclopedia who gave me lots of informations of my country about those years when i was not even born yet. It was a really precious experience in my career. I hope you great happiness, health and peace in the future life. Sincerely Susan
