We had a wonderful 2 day tour with Casper in Beijing. She is adorable, pleasant and knowledgeable. She was very accomodating and attentive to our needs and limitations. Highly recommend her!!
Casper was willing to help us in every way. She is very knowledgeable and was very flexible with my 2 young children; which was especially appreciated.My children voted her the best guide of the 3 private guides we used during our trip to China.

When you see the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City , how can you not have a great 2 days? Casper was very knowledgeable about culture and history and especially attentive to our individual needs. She added a private visit to the Hutong to meet a family which was the highlight of our entire vacation. These personalized touches are why we use the wonderful guides we find through ToursByLocals.

Jenn LujanUnited States
AWESOME!!! I cannot express into words how great Casper is as guide. We were on a preset tour package for 10 days, and only had a couple for "free days." I decided to book Casper on one of our free days and that was the best and most memorable day of our whole trip! We requested that she take us to Mutian yu Great Wall, and Forbidden City. Casper is very friendly, prompt when she picked us up and ended the tour on time. I highly suggest that you book a tour with her!
Steven BardUnited States
Zhang aka Casper was Fantastic. We took the 2 day tour of Beijing and she was so informative. Also when we went to the Great Wall, she took us to the location with the best Preserved area. Also we had the Best Chinese Food Lunch that only Locals go to and we loved it so much, we went out by ourselves for dinner at the same restaurant. If you are looking for the most memorable tour of Beijing, book Casper first. Steven
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steven and Harry:-)

Casper was exceptional and we really enjoyed our tour. Casper was so down to earth and genuine. Our tour was organised perfectly and we felt very relaxed. Our children loved Casper.
Antonina EttareSan Jose, United States
Chang was such an informative Tour Guide. She had a wealth of knowledge of The Great Wall of China where our group went as well as other areas which we did not get a chance to see. It was great listening to her. She answered all of our questions and we had a very nice time. Chang also accommodated to our schedule for the entire day. I highly recommend her for any tour in Beijing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Antonina:-)
Gia CreceliusUnited States
If we could give more stars, we definitely would. Casper is the most wonderful guide--we had such a great trip with her last year that when we found out that we were returning to Beijing, we booked with her as soon as we could. We were able to customize our tour and visit places that we hadn't been to before. Casper really listens to what your interests are and then crafts an itinerary based on those requests. She did such a great job organizing so that we never had to deal with crowds. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU Gia and Tina!
Harry WeyandtUnited States
WOW! We had 3.5 days spent with "Casper" touring Beijing and had a great time. She tailored our touring and private car to our exact wishes. We had brought along our 11 & 12 yr old granddaughters and she was awesome with them. She arranged to have a mini-BUS to pick us up at the airport and was there waiting for us. She answered all our millions of questions. Our private mini-van each day was clean & smoke free. She Was a great help shopping at the Pearl Market. Excellent English.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) Thank you Vicky and Harry! Bring my warmest regards to the girls!
Jennifer LichtyUnited States
Excellent tour and a wonderful guide. Casper was so helpful and even helped us to arranged a car to the train station the day after our tour. She definitely goes the extra mile for her clients!
James CrossUnited States
"Casper" was a very good guide. Knowledgeable and flexible with our schedule and desires. Went where others don't usually go, which was perfect. Some accent, but got used to it after an hour or so. Great two days.
Grant MinerviniFLAGSTAFF HILL, SA, Australia
Zhang (Casper) was very helpful and interesting guide. She packed a great deal into our three days with her in Beijing and nothing was too much trouble. She went out of her way to ensure our every need was taken care of even ordering in restaurants for us. Casper also dealt with some obscure requests from us without any issues. She has an excellent grasp of ancient and modern Chinese history which enhanced our visit. Whilst quite friendly she was reluctant to share meals or rest time with us.
Richard SmithUnited States
Casper was superb as a tour guide and host. She had great info., did all we expected of her and more as a tour guide and helped us in our own travel and language matters as well. She had good use of the Eng. language and was a great new friend and helper. We'd definitely use her again, if in the Beijing area, without question. Thanks to her and for all her patience, understanding and help. We were two panicky first time visitors to the PRC. We loved it there and Casper (and driver) as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU Harry and Richard. I also learn a lot from you guys as well! Wish you all the best:-) Your friend, Casper.
Steven LoyUnited States
Casper is a brilliant guide!! She is knowledgeable,but most importantly she is a caring and compassionate companion. Casper was flexible with our itinerary, fluidly changing direction to adjust to our interests. We saw sights, went shopping, and even shared dinner together. For us, Casper was not only a guide and host, she is a friend.
Cheryl KennyThe Woodlands, TX, United States
Casper is an excellent tour guide and I recommend her without any reservations! She loves her native Beijing, and her passion for her home town shows! She was very gracious and knows her local history. One of our favorite stops was the 798 Art District which was a last minute add-on to our standard Beijing sites. Our group of 4 got so much more out of our trip due to her being our guide. I wish we had more time with her to explore even more of what Beijing has to offer.
Casper was an amazing tour guide! She not only was very knowledgeable, but was also extremely kind-hearted. She made an effort to make sure my mother, who was recovering from a knee injury, was well taken care of. We had a different tour guide for our last day in Beijing, and I can tell you the difference between the other tour guide and Casper was night and day. I would definitely choose Casper for any future travel. My family loved our time with her.
Dwight GeislerUnited States
What an awesome tour hosted by our wonderful guide Casper! Having never been to Beijing before my I couldn't have picked a more enjoyable way to see the city and surrounding area. Casper is a charming, knowledgeable, friendly, professional guide who went above and beyond to make our tour FIRST CLASS in every way. Our vehicle was very comfortable and Casper coordinated the travel schedule in a timely and efficient manner. I again applaud Casper's expertise as a tour guide and highly recommend this tour!
Charles IreysAnchorage, AK, United States
Casper was great, she gave us a wonderful three day tour which included all the important sites in and around Beijing. She provided unique insight in to the ancient Chinese civilization which we otherwise may have missed. She also gave us tips for navigating the city on our own using the subway. She was pleasant, cheerful, and funny, and an overall pleasure to be around. I would recommend Casper to anyone wishing to visit the amazing sites around Beijing. Wonderful tour!
Gia CreceliusUnited States
We had the most wonderful time. Thank you so much!
she is passionate about history and Beijing. She even took care of our family to get us in time on a train!
Zhang (Casper) is an excellent tour guide. We enjoyed every minute of her tour and explanation. She is ver knowledgeable. Everything run smoothly. Her driver was awesome, They were very punctual, we felt very safe and relaxed. We would recommend her you any one that goes to Beijing. Her English is very good. Thank you for a two fantastic days ����
Roxanne LittleUnited States
Casper was a wonderful guide-full of enthusiasm, information, great sense of humor-very easy to spend time with. Her driver had a very comfortable van and they would pick us up at our hotel each morning and whisk us around and drop us off at sites and then pick us up at the end of each site visit which made our tour time together very efficient. Casper was also very good at picking out local restaurants that we would have never found on our own. I would highly, highly recommend Casper and her driver-A++
Casper and her driver were very helpful. We managed to squeeze in a full day visiting the Badaling Great Wall section, the Summer Palace and Pandas at the Zoo. Thankyou!
Leslie Brycesanta Monica, CA, United States
An excellent guide who took care to make the tour seamless and interesting. He adjusted to suit me throughout the day.
Douglas OstmanUnited States
Casper appeared at the appropriate time and was very courteous. I was not feeling well and as such after our visit I reimbursed Casper for the tickets that she had purchased and went to bed to rest. We would have loved to have seen the Great Wall and the Forbidden City but because of illness we were unable which was no fault of Casper. We stress that Casper was gracious and courteous.
My husband and I were very lucky to have had Casper as our guide. Her English was excellent and she was very knowledgeable. She took us to The Great Wall, The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and a Tea Ceremony. Casper also helped us obtain tickets to the railway station for our trip to Shanghai. We could not have wished for a better guide. Casper was kind, respectful and we had a wonderful day.

Casper is a wonderful tour guide . All our requests were taken care of and we had s very busy 2 day itinerary in Beijing. Page Jackson
Robert TrioSai Ying Pun, Hong Kong
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.
Tamara F.United States
Punctual, courteous, knowledgable. No complaints at all!! Excellent experience.
Ilene McFaddenUnited States
Caesar was a great guide. She took us to all the best places and the insider look at Beijing. She took us to a local restaurant that was yummy. Thank you for all the information you shared with us.
Jeffrey BallardUnited States
We enjoyed our guide and 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!
Joy MarshallUnited States
"Casper" was an excellent tour guide. She spoke very good english, was very informative, and made the day extremely worth the price we paid for her as a tour guide. I would highly recommend using her for anyone who wants a memorable, pleasant tour of Beijing or the great wall.
Georgia KaufmannUnited Kingdom
We had three memorable days with Casper who is relaxed, flexible, knowledgeable and patient guide. We saw all the major sites and when we suggested other ones not on the itinerary Casper was accomodating and made it happen for us. She also endured our shopping trips (and giving us price guidance) so we all came away happy and more cultured, and well fed (she made great lunch suggestions). We enjoyed her company and happily recommend her.
I done the half day religious & cultural tour. The sites were visually very beautiful and amazing to see the display of culture which went into the design of the buildings. Casper is a very knowledgeable guide with a sound understanding of the places visited and speaks very good English. She even customised the tour itinerary a little to suit my interest. Thank you Casper for the tour
All worked out well for Jane and Steven in Beijing. The trip to the Great Wall went smoothly and they were back at the airport in plenty of time. Casper was very helpful and informative.
Liliane ParkinsonNew Zealand
We highly recommend Casper as a Beijing guide. Her English was excellent, her knowledge of the places we visited impressive and she was helpful and friendly. We felt we had made a friend. Our visit would not have been so successful and memorable without her. She took us to the places we wanted to see and structured our days to make the most of our time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment!Wish you all the best;)

I had a wonderful time with Casper as a guide. She was very accommodating, knowledgeable, spoke perfect English and showed me some absolutely amazing places.I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ；） Thanks for your compliments Alex! Wish you best success!
Lindsey R.United States
We cannot rate Casper highly enough! After 3 jam-packed, fun-filled days with her, we felt that the rest of the guides we had lined up in China had a lot to live up to! Her English is excellent and she was wonderful helping us bargain for souvenirs. She and her driver got us to each destination with ease. Her manner is very relaxed, yet we were able to stick to our busy schedule and never felt rushed. She was full of really great information at each site. We were sad to have to say goodbye to her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your general compliments! It is my pleasure to meet you and Mark and my pleasure to guide you in my city! Take care and wish you all the best!
Kathleen ZoldosUnited States
A perfect way to see Beijing! What a day - the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the Lama Temple and Tiananmen Square. Casper provided us with the history and insights into the sights that made them memorable. She was very accommodating and facilitated lunch at a local restaurant for Peking Duck - it was delicious. Casper provided recommendations for places to see in the evenings and she was right on the mark. We are fortunate to have had a wonderful day in Beijing.
Kathleen ZoldosUnited States
We knew that we couldn't travel to China and not see the Great Wall. We chose a tour that included the Mutianyu Section for its spectacular views and the sled ride down. The day was perfect. The tour was everything it said it would be. Casper was accommodating, knowledgeable and her English was excellent. We loved our day on the Wall with the incredible views. There were many stairs but they were definitely quite manageable. This was the perfect way to see the Great Wall. Thank you Casper!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ；-） Thank you! Enjoy my two days with your family. Wish you all the best.
Larry DanversUnited States
We have not visited the wall anywhere else to compare it to, but the wall at Mutianyu is spectacular, it exceeded our expectations for beauty and grandeur. When trying to decide what tour to take to the wall, the very good reviews Casper has received here helped us decide to take her tour. None of those other reviews have overstated how personable, wonderfully helpful and knowledgeable Casper is. She was always there with information or help when we needed it, but we always felt relaxed and never rushed.
Barbara EisenbergUnited States
You cannot find a better guide in Beijing than Casper! She is knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, and most accomodating. She made our 2nd trip to Beijing a memorable experience by selecting areas of interest that we had not visited on our prior trip. Her English is excellent and we learned a lot from each other. She helped us bargain for goods, and took us to excellent local restaurants.
Sonya RadatzUnited States
Our guide Casper was knowledgeable, personable, interesting and entertaining. All one could ask for and then some. Our driver was excellent and professional as well. A wonderful experience! Highly recommended.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Casper is Zhang Chang's English name.
Zhang (Casper) was very knowledgeable. She spoke very good English and was very accommodating and helpful. My friends and I really enjoyed the tour and would definitely use Zhang (Casper) again as well as recommend her to our friends. There were four of us and we had a big air conditioned van that was very comfortable. Feel at ease in using this tour group.
