Our family aged between 5 and 70+ had the most enjoyable 3 days tour of Beijing with Mary. Mary's passion of being a guide is unsurpassed. Her enthusiasm in sharing the history of Beijing and China, the culture and way of life of the Beijing people and different parts of China along with thorough and detailed introductions to the sites we visited made this tour complete beyond our expectations. At Beijing Zoo, full of energy, Mary looked for the best spots to see the pandas. Thank you Mary!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! Jo�� Hope you had a good time in Harbin! All the best! ������

Tour: #346820, One day Private Tour to visit The Great Wall of China and Old Beijing Hutong, Changying, Beijing, China    view tour
Date: Nov 6/18

My 8yr old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Great Wall and Hutong area with Mary. She was wonderful and everything went smoothly. She is an experienced, knowledgeable guide who speaks very good English. Parts of the Hutong area had closed due to a conference the afternoon we visited - but she adapted things to ensure we still did all we had planned and incorporated a tea ceremony in the Bell Tower too. Our driver was safe and the car was comfortable and very clean. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you , Angela�� All the best!

Date: Oct 9/18

Mary did a 2 day tour of the Great Wall, Summer Palace, Acrobat Show, pandas and Houtong for me, my husband, our 2 and 4 year old daughters, and my father. It was great! She handled transportation and every detail for us, which was very important since we couldn't speak the language or read most signs. She was wonderful with my little girls (they kept asking for her for the remainder of the trip) and my elderly father (he pulled a muscle the first day and she helped us find a cane and held his arm).

Tour: #346818, A half day private tour of the Forbidden City and the Tian'an men Square., Zhaogezhuang, Beijing, China    view tour
Date: Apr 14/18

We visited the Forbidden City, which was incredibly crowded on a Saturday morning. Mary is a very pleasant person and a great guide. Her English is well understandable. She knows how to entertain and to teach without drowning in information. As a guide her practical skills are perfect. She managed it to avoid long queues and get the tickets in no time. We would not hesitate to book another tour with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much,Elina & Hans! You are very knowledgeable and so gentle! All the best . Mary

Tour: Beijing Private Tour over 2 days., Beijing, China
Date: Sep 23/17

Mary's knowledge was exceptional - most likely would have given her 5 stars if we could start each day at 7 or 7:30 rather than 8:30. The additional insights that we received from having Mary with us provided a much better understanding of the culture we were embracing. Things you cant control: traffic, pollution, other service providers - Mary did well to navigate and re-route all obstacles as best she could in such little time frame we had.

Date: Aug 26/17

Mary is very professional in explaining to us in detail of the historical landmark in our tour. She is very knowledgeable in China history and places of interest especially the local food street and attractions. We had joined many tours before and many of them try to squeeze us by bringing us to the shops and outlets that are pricey enroute to our designated tour. In Mary case, she recommend us the must see tour and attractions like the palaces, great wall of china and many food street. Thanks Mary

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!! Cecilia�� Take care!!��
