I was very pleased with my tour and tour guide of the Great Wall of China. It was a wonderful and unbelievable experience. Alice was my guide and she was a very professional and knowledgeable tour guide. Alice loves her country and it shows. She was excellent in outlining Chinese history. She was very forthcoming in explaining Chinese culture. She speaks very good English with only a slight dialect; she was easy to understand. Alice was eager to please and happy to educate. Five stars for Alice!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandy, thank you very much for your valuable reviews. I hope you happy everyday and welcome to Beijing again. Happy New Year! All best wishes to you! Sincerely Alice!

Alice speaks English well and is a top scholar who can answer any question on China. She designed a private tour tailored to our interests. We shared many terrific meals at her favorite restaurants and paid reasonable prices. She always looked out for our best interests including Western toilets. Five stars are not enough for Alice. She gets our highest recommendation.

Danhong was incredible! We have used Tours by Locals for many tours all around the world and have never been disappointed. Danhong (or Alice) was so very sweet, thoughtful, informative and organized - all of the qualities you would want in an excellent tour guide. She was early to arrive with a great driver and vehicle and she went above and beyond her tour description by including a gift for our family and extra stops along the way. Thank you for the great tour, Alice!!!

Alice is an amazing guide who made our trip more memorable. Our customized tour for 8 adults included pickup in a private van, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden Palace, Temple of Heaven, family style lunch at a local restaurant, and a rickshaw tour of Old Hutong. The tour was fun, well organized and informative. Alice has a great sense of humor and is skilled at keeping the tour moving at a comfortable pace; ensuring we did everything we wanted without feeling rushed. If in Beijing, this tour is a must!

Our party of 3 just completed a wonderful 3 day port tour of Beijing and Tianjun thanks largely to the efforts of our absolutely terrific guide, Alice. She is outstanding in every respect — extremely knowledgeable, personable, most considerate and speaks excellent English.

We were a family traveling with 2 young children. Alice was sensitive to the need to take periodic breaks and was constantly on the lookout to assist. She was knowledgeable and knew ways to help us get around in the shortest time possible. She was flexible to accommodate change in activities planned so that we could experience Beijing better. She accompanied us to a Hutong though it wasn't planned. Having her as our guide had definitely enhanced our experience and made our trip enjoyable.

Tamara WatkinsUnited States
We had a fabulous 2 days of touring Beijing with Alice. She was prompt (meaning early) every morning she picked us up and provided snacks and bottled water. In addition, Alice was very informative regarding the sites as well as local culture and worked very hard to ensure our happiness and complete satisfaction with what we were doing and seeing each day. Each day she recommended two local restaurants - which were wonderful - and assisted us as we checked into our hotel. I emphatically recommend her!!!

Rachel PinckneyUnited States
EXCELLENT tour guide! Arranging the tour with Alice was easy. She was prompt & detailed. On arrival we were warmly greeted & immediately felt welcomed. She enriched us with her knowledge & guided us through beautiful Beijing. She cared for us like family. She kept "Uncle Ken" out of harms way, got Greg to "come back" every time, tutored the girls in Mandarin, always smiled at "Uncle Bill", made special time for "Aunt Maggie" & opened her heart to all of us. Alice was the best part of our trip to Beijing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rachel, thank you so much for your wonderful reviews. I feel so moved to see your warm and sweet words. Today is China National Holiday, and have the military parade on the Tian'an men square. I hope you can watch the news on the TV. We came to Tian'an men sqaure together with a lot of beautiful memory. I hope you with Greg will love each other forever. Bailey and Lily they can speak fluent Chinese in the future. Uncle Ken, Bill and auntie Maggie keep healthy and happy smile every day.
Joanne BrooksUnited States
Our tourguide Danhong "Alice" was awesome. She was timely, very considerate, flexible, so very knowledgeable about history as well as making recommendations! We had an amazing two day tour that included everything even Traditional Chinese Medicine (a highlight).

We felt cared for by an expert and our driver Mr. Lee was fantastic too. Highly recommend!

Alice in Wonderland! Is exactly what she reminds us of our beautiful trip in Beijing. One of my son had fever and needed medical attention. She immediately brought us to the best children hospital. Being extremely loving, she handled the whole process with us from registration to collection of medicine. We are ever so grateful! She tailored the informative tour so perfectly while we had to adjust our pace and itinerary to suit. Definitely more than a guide, she treats us like family. 10 Stars to Alice!

Sera MollierUnited Kingdom
This jam-packed 3 day tour is your "must have" for Beijing. Many of Beijing's sites were spread out and truly breath-taking. This tour saves you a lot of time and stress as it was very well-planned. It ran like clock-work. The guide is very knowledgeable in history and geography. it would be quite hard to achieve so much site-seeing on your own without the expert knowledge and transportation provided by the guide. Alice takes her job very seriously. You won't be disappointed with this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sera and Josie, thank you very much for your valuable reviews. It's my honour to do your local tour guide in Beijing. I really hope you can come back to China one day and we can meet each other again. Take care of yourself too. I love you and Josie. All best wishes to you. Alice
Eddy le CouvreurROTTERDAM, NON US/CANADA, Netherlands
Danhong is a fantastic guide. She took care of all our needs: she is very knowledgeable and informative, helped us with choosing our food, adapted the pace of the tour to our energy level etc. Danhong has a warm personality and takes a keen interest in her guests. We visited the great wall and the summer palace by car. The car was immaculate and so was the driver, Mr Wang. We can definitely recommend Danhong Chen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eddy, thank you very much for your valuable reviews. I had a wonderful and happy time with you too. Enjoy your trip in Shanghai. All best wishes to you.
Victor Saura LlopartSpain
We are a family that booked Alice as our tour guide in Beijing! She was incredible! The most kind person, most aware and extremely friendly tour guide we ever had! She always explained everything very detailed being knowledgeable of all the sites we visited as well as being patient and careful with all of us! Although everywhere was super crowded we never had to wait for anything. She took us to eat to different places as well and helped us on everything we needed. It felt like she was a good friend

Thomas WarkUnited States
Alice was awesome! Met me at my hotel and arranged DiDi travel to Forbidden City and Summer Palace per my request (about 200 RMB - $30 USD). Also took me to an outstanding local restaurant near Forbidden City. Spent over 7 hours with me - very energetic and very informed. Provided excellent historical background and local insight. Highly recommend her and will use her again. Keith
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith, thank you very much for your wonderful reviews. I'm so happy to know you back to home already. I had a very happy time with you too. Welcome you go back to China again. Best wishes.

Alice's tour was pretty good. It was fun taking the subway like a local and she even took a photo of us inside. She is very informative, has good english and is very helpful. she never made us feel rushed and we didnt have to wait on any long lines as she had already purchased tickets in advance.

Dilip ShahUnited States
Alice was extremely helpful and did things out of her way to help us around Beijing. She was very cordial and she would accommodate to our needs and request.
Alice was knowledgeable and very thorough in explaining the history of the sights. She was also patient and accommodating to our needs as we had an elderly lady with us. She actually spent more than 4 hours with us and after the tour ended, she went the extra mile to book us a cab and waited with us for more than half an hour for the cab to arrive. Great service. Would definitely recommend her as a guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jenny, thank you very much for your wonderful and valuable reviews. it was my pleasure to meet you and I enjoyed very much to spend the day with you. All best wishes to your family.
Alice is a wonderful guide and person. In addition to the tour, she helped us with travel arrangements and other things that without Chinese skills would have been difficult to get done. After visiting the Forbidden City and seeing the peonies in full bloom at Jingshan Park, Alice took us to a local restaurant. The fish dumplings tasted sublime. Simple, but the type of food you can only have in China and only at a restaurant introduced by a true local!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ken, thank you very much for your valuable reviews. I had wonderful time with your family too. I hope Yohan he can speak very fluent Chinese in the future. All best wishes to your family.
