Alex was a great tour guide who worked to give us the ultimate experience of Beijing. In planning the trip, she gave us valuable guidance in planning the rapid fire agenda of site seeing and cultural. She gave me valuable advice in what was a must see and what we should pass on. From the time she meet us at the hotel when we arrived to make sure she could purchase discounted tickets to becoming the time marshal to ensure we could fulfill each days schedules, Alex was amazing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your fast nice feedback, I had wonderful time with your family together, you have three great kids, hope you have a nice trip in Vietnam. Miss you guys already. Cheers

Alexandrea is an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable and able to answer any and all questions we had about the history of the places we visited, as well as current history and cultural information questions we had about China and Beijing. She had lots of interesting stories about particular events and historical figures that made the tour even more interesting. She took us to Mr. Shi Dumpling Restaurant in a Hutong area that was fantastic. Helped us order some really wonderful dishes. 5*****!

Booked 3 day customized Beijing tour with Alex after many emails back and forth. Alex is helpful, knowledgeable, flexible, easy-going. My mom is 80 years old & I am an experienced traveler; we would have been completely lost without Alex. She knows all the ins-outs, says a few words to a guard and we are through the line. She was so good and fun, we booked a 4th day. It was difficult for my Mom to walk alot, Alex was kind, sweet and caring with her. Picked great restaurants. Busy lady book her fast.

Alexandra organised and flexible. She also has a sense of humour. She is knowledgeable and informative - she is full of detailed and interesting facts about just about everything! Alex kept us moving at an efficient but relaxed pace to maximise our experiences. She tailored our tour to match our interests and preferences - didn't just give us a one-size-fits-all, take it or leave it itinerary. She saved us time in queues with her foresight and organisation. Would definitely recommend using her services.

Alex is local, knowledgeable, interesting, well organised and also fun. We were a group of four family members, speaking only English, as well as also Mandarin. Alex made sure that everyone understood her comments, in both languages. She was terrific also with my nearly 79-y.o. mother, and was understanding and took time to ensure that we had plenty of rest, toilet and water breaks. Important when it is 38 Celsius! I highly recommend Alex.

Alex was an amazing tour guide! Firstly, she customized the itinerary based on what we wanted to see, listening to our thoughts and making recommendations. She was early/on time to every place and knowledgeable about Beijing. It was nice to have a private guide. She also was very organised and her tour licence allows her to get access to different/early tickets. She has a great sense of humour and was trustworthy, kind/friendly and fun to be around.

Alex took us to the main sights of Beijing during our three day tour. She worked with me well (by e-mail) before our trip to organize our visit. She organized our trip so we could get around Beijing flawlessly. Her English is very strong and related well to our young adult children. Highlights of our tour include visiting and tobogganing down the Great Wall, the Buddha temple, the Summer Palace, and great meals. (You can skip the Kung-Fu show). We all learned a lot! Wonderful three days!

As the Forbidden city was closed, Alex took us out to the far section of the Great Wall instead (Jinshaling - 2.5 hours drive) . This is the longest and least busy section of the wall and we spent 2.5 hours walking it, after catch a gondola up. The entrance was 60 yuan each and then another 60 yuan for the gondola. We really enjoyed this and got great photos without the crowds. We had a late lunch, and then drove the 2.5 hours back to Beijing. The car was modern and comfortable.

My cousins and I decided to book a tour in Beijing because we were travelling with our mothers, who aren't very adventurous. Toursbylocals is a good compromise between those who want the comfort and convenience of a tour package but the freedom and flexibility of solo travel. Overall, all five of us on the trip felt Alex was a great tourguide. She is very knowledgeable and helpful, and the tour was well thought out and customised to our preferences. She is also very friendly and a pleasure to speak with!

We have had an absolutely wonderful time with Alexandra. She is very knowledgeable, kind, fun and accommodating. She has gone out of her way to make sure we are enjoying every aspect of our time with her. We have spent four days with her, and have truly enjoyed our entire tour. I have difficulty walking a long distance and Alexandra always cares about how I am doing, and to tailor our tour to fit our needs. Alexandra made our time in Beijing very special. Thanks Alexandra!

Tour: Beijing half day Great Wall tour, Beijing, China

Alexandra was wonderful and the tour was the highlight of our 10 night trip. Alexandra spoke wonderful English and was just an all around great person to lead a tour. The car was well air conditioned, clean, safe, and was a wonderful alternative to a crowded and cramped tour bus. The tour itself was 5 star with amazing flexibility, comfort, and informative as well. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this tour.

Tour: Two Day Beijing tour, Beijing, China

Alex is an excellent guide. Her English is very good and she has a wide knowledge of her home city Beijing. She was genuinely happy to explain a great deal to us about Chinese customs and way of life. Coming from New Zealand we were overwhelmed by the number of tourists and the heat (41degrees) but Alex did everything possible to help us by locating excellent restaurants and helping us to buy food and drink supplies in local stores. Also very patient with my endless stops for photos. Highly recommended!

Alex is a very professional and personable guide. She's quite experienced and couldn't be stumped on any question. I asked for some changes in the tour and she made it all work out. I wouldn't hesitate to book Alex again whenever I return to Beijing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Martin is my first guest that I got from toursbylocals and I am so glad that I got such a nice tourist first time. I really hope that I could show him more around my city when he gets more time and thanks so much for his cooperation and all the staff that work for this website.
