We really enjoyed our tour. The price was very fair and both our guide and driver were great.

Casper is a nice person who tries to make your experience worthwhile but overall the expense was not worth it. It was an extremely expensive tour and which only covered the guide and the driver. I was disappointed that she left me alone in Beijing for an hour to attend to personal business and later left me with a driver who did not speak English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert. For the shopping street, it is for travellers to have free looking and shopping, so we just agree with a place we meet after he finish looking around. So I didnt go with him. After the day' s tour, I ask if he wants to see the local performance as he request. He said yes. So I help him to get his own ticket and the show is for one hour. Driver and I just wait for him and after the show, we meet him again and send him back to hotel. Sorry for this and I will consider it for the future.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: A partial refund was issued to Robert, and also we discussed with the guide the importance of always being with the traveler during the whole tour as that is the advantage of a private tour.
Casper our guide was outstanding! She made our visit to Beijing a fabulous experience. She couldn't have done any more to make our 3 day tour a more memorable experience. She spoke excellent easily understood English and had a lovely sense of humour. She suggested authentic restaurants for our lunch and was so patient in explaining everything from the menu to the history of China and directing us at the markets. Our driver dropped us 'at the door' of all our destinations we visited and was never far away.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lyle and Cathy:-) thanks for your feedback. I am so happy that you enjoyed your Beijing tour with me! It is my pleasure to help you out in Beijing! Wish your families always have good harvest. I miss you!
