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!
Mary made my visit in Beijing magical! She is a fantastic guide, extremely knowledgeable, kind and caring. I will never forget this day, and I hope to visit more sites with her during my next visit. Not only I had a chance to meet a new culture, but I truly found a local friend! Mary, you embody the whole philosophy of toursbylocals, thank you again for this amazing experience
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Sara,you are a nice girl! All the best!

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).

We had a wonderful tour with Mary of the Hutongs and the Mansion of Prince Gong. She listened to our requests when planning the tour and gave us an excellent afternoon. She is a very experienced guide and I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lucy,Thank you so much!All the best!
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
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.

Very knowledgeable guide, great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lisa!
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
