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*****!

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!

Alex was a very informative and flexible guide. It was very crowded on our tour day and we navigated lines and heard her explanations very well. Traveling between venues was challenging, but Alex did a fine job. Also, the visit to the local restaurant was excellent.
Alex is the most flexible and patient guide and adds humour to whatever she does to put people at ease. She was instrumental in helping us with a difficult hotel registration. Alex excelled as an interpreter for us at a family dinner. Care and caution was given as we Travelled via Beijing subway to the Olympic Site the Beijing Zoo. Local restaurant choices were excellent Her explanations of current life in China and daily life in Beijing were great excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice comment. Hopefully I can visit your great country one day, keep in touch and take care. Best wishes for all of you. Alex

I highly recommend Alexandra as a tour guide if you are ever in Beijing China. I have traveled to Beijing several times. In my past visits to Beijing I have been with group tours or gone alone. But having her as my guide made this the best trip I have ever had. She is very knowable and very professional. She even went the extra mile and helped me to the airport to assure it was trouble free. The next time I travel to Beijing I assure you I will book her tour service in advance Thank You Alexandra
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the nice and quick comment. keep in touch and pls say hi for me to Juliana, she is an angel. Alex

We spent two days with Alex on our trip to Beijing. She was so knowledgeable about the history of all the places we visited. Alex was flexible which was important as we were traveling with a couple of 6 year olds, a 12 year old, a 14 year old and three adults. She took us all around on the subway system and to all our destinations and we all had a great time! She is a super nice young lady!

See comments for April 1st. We were able to book Alex on both days of our trip. One Tours by Locals guide dropped our request because our group was too big (three adults, two teenagers and two 6 year olds) and we are glad he did because Alex made it work and she did an incredible job! A very positive experience for us! Thank you Alex:)
