The stay in Beijing with Cathy was very comfortable. She tailored for us excellent itinerary, she pick up us and drop us at the airport, bought all tickets what we need, recommed us very nice and tasty restaurant, guide us perfectly. Time we spent in Beijing, we saw Forbidden City, Temple of Haven, Silk factory, traditional market, Olimpic stadium, Tianmen Square and Wangfujing Street, was pleasant and stressfree. We highly recommend Cathy as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Olga; Great thanks for your precious review, I had a great two days with your family also, whole-heartily welcome back to Beijing one day again, take care and happy new year ! Best regards cathy
Cathy was great with accommodating our specific requests including on the day changes to the itinerary. We travelled in a group of 10 including 3 young kids and after half a day of walking around forbidden city, they were too tired to visit the Summer Palace so Cathy suggested a laid back rickshaw ride around Houhai instead. Cathy is very knowledgeable about the attractions we visited so we learned a lot more than we would otherwise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tim; Great thanks for your precious review, two nicely days I had with your group also, especially at the snowing great wall, wish a great journey back home, take care Tim : ) Best regards cathy
Ross AgreUnited States
Cathy is an amazing and energetic guide who made our trip exceptional. Her communication in planning our trip in advance was great. Everything during our trip went very smoothly, from our airport transfers to having the car meet us right outside every venue we visited. Cathy is exceptionally knowledgeable and related as well to our 11 and 13 year daughters as she did to my wife and me. She was also highly entertaining and just plain fun to spend time with. I highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ross; Great thanks for the amazing time I had with your family for the four full days, nicely and awesome, and " Chou run fa " smile , wish a great new year for you and your family, back to beijing one day ! Best regards cathy
Linn CrandallUnited States
Cathy was incredible! My husband is hard of hearing, I have limited mobility and use a wheelchair. She, and her driver were so kind and helpful. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our wishes with a contagious, upbeat personality. She even lent us mittens after I e-mailed her we had forgotten to bring some (and it was freezing at the wall and only a little warmer at the Forbidden City.) We shared some funny moments together that we will treasure beyond the sightseeing adventure!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linn; Great thanks for your precious review, and happy new year to you and William : ), I had a great two days with you too, all best wishes from Cathy for the coming new year, take care Linn : ) Best regards Cathy
Kevin MassieUnited States
Cathy saved the day! We arrived 2 hours late to our airport meeting spot and were worried we wouldn't be able to fit everything in. She had the tour calculated down to the minute and knew when to hurry us along to the next stop so we could see everything during our tour! We are so grateful we had her and she cared so much about our experience because it allowed us to see the things we wanted to see and not miss out. She made sure to keep an eye on all of us and helped us with not over paying for souvenirs
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kevin; I had a such wonderful day with everyone also, and Beijing always welcomes you come back again, take care Kevin: )

Cathy was a fantastic guide! She and the driver were right on time every morning meeting us at our hotel. She made arrangements for us to see a show and also for a driver to take us to the airport. She took us to see all the famous sites and arranged for lunch at great restaurants including a brewpub we specifically requested.

We were a private group traveling with 4 children and an elderly. The transport provided was clean and comfortable. Child seats provided were clean and of good quality. Cathy was warm and knowledgeable. She provided good information about the Great Wall and history behind the construction which made us appreciate the structure more during the tour. Lunch venue selected was clean and had a variety of food. She was also flexible in accommodating to our needs.

Gary SchoelenUnited States
Some how my star rating got put down wrong it seems. This was a 5 star rating! Cathy was amazing and we had such a good time with her. We left China with more than a new friend, she is now our family!! Ask her to take you to see the "MARBLE" boat! We laughed for hours. All the food was good and she was always on top of the days itinerary. I want to keep her a secret so I can have her all to myself! You will love any tour with Cathy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary; Hope you had a great time on cruise and Singpore, thanks so much for the warm words, i had a great and unforgetable time with you and Sallie, like family , never forget " Marble boat ", take care Gary, hope one day see each other again ! Best regards cathy
Nicola WallisUnited Kingdom
We had a wonderful day with Cathy completing many activities and made dumplings followed by a wonderful home cooked lunch. We would not have seen or learnt so much without a guide as with no Chinese language we has found ourselves totally dependent on the kindness of strangers the day before on a trip to the zoo
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nicola; Richful time I had with you and Sofie also, so nicely, enjoy a great trip china with Sofie , Nicola : ) Best regards cathy
I travel a lot internationally, & I have never had a tour guide better than Cathy. My Chinese friends suggested a private guided tour because I am "picky". My wife and I hit the jackpot with Cathy! She customized a tour based on our very specific requests, and optimized the experience with tasteful and well-thought-out additions and modifications. Our trip coincided with the 70 anniversary of the PRC. Cathy deftly handled the various site closures and restrictions, & made this trip AMAZING! Truly VIP!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sylvester; Thanks so much for your precious review, it was so funny two days i spend with you and Erika, hope all goes well and one day have time back again, all best wishes from cathy, take care Sylvester : ) Best regards

Awesome tour and guide was incredible!! Thank you for the great experience!!
Cathy was a very organised and friendly guide who took us to all the bucket list sites with a minimum of fuss. She has a very good car and driver ,essential for the distances required. This tour would be very hard to do alone so we were happy to have Cathy's help to negotiate all the myriad tickets and queues.

An amazing few days with the wonderful Cathy as our guide. Our family ( including two kids age 14 and 18 ) ticked off the top sights Beijing had to offer including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square , Summer Palace, rickshaw around Hutongs, the Great Wall and Birds Nest ( site of 2008 Beijing Olympics ). Easy to make arrangements and flexible to change as we went along. Cathy is a fantastic knowledgeable guide, great English, good drivers with air conditioned mini vans. Would 100% recommend.

Robert FarquharsonUnited Kingdom
Each morning Cathy would appear with a bright smile, a joyful wave and boundless enthusiasm for the day ahead. Her tour was well balanced both with the content and the time spent. The real star of the show was Cathy herself. She is loads of fun and a really lovely person. If a personable guide with deep knowledge is your first priority you won't get any better. Come to England Cathy and let us be your guides in London.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert; Lovely time I had with you and Colleen, thanks so much for the lovely moment and lots fun , wish have chance to London and welcome back again one day, take care :）All best from cathy
Erwin EberhardtUnited States
My family and I are so grateful to have Cathy as our tour guide for 4 days during our visit to Beijing. She made sure that our time was fulfilled with the most important sites and shows. She was able to get us best seats and always easy access to sites, so we never felt we wasted time. We are so looking forward to our next visit to Beijing, so Cathy can be with us again. She is not just a tour guide, she is a teacher of her culture and a historian of China. She is number 1.

We had an amazing day with Cathy touring two sections of the Great Wall. Cathy was very knowledgeable about the history of the wall, the surrounding area, and where to go to avoid large crowds. Additionally, the driver went above and beyond to transfer us from one hotel to the next. I highly recommend Cathy and this Great wall experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kyle; Thanks so much, we had a great day at the both wall, just amazing with nice memories, hope can see one day when you back , all best from Cathy : )
Cathy was an excellent guide on our intense Beijing 4 day tour. She was able to customize the tour to our needs from pick up at the airport to drop off. She was very friendly and engaging and had a wide ranging knowledge of the historical background of all the attractions we visited. We did not have to wait for any entrance tickets all was arranged, she had unstoppable energy. I really appreciated her input on a good way to structure our visit. I think we saw it all on this trip, well done Cathy.

Christy AldermanUnited States
Cathy is a wonderful guide passionate about her city and delighted to share what she loves about Beijing. Her emphasis is on making sure you are happy and experiencing what you want to while visiting China. Cathy took care of us for 2-days. First day we went to Forbidden City, Tianamen Square, Temple of Heaven and then to an amazing show. Second day we went the Great Wall (awesome) and on a rickshaw ride in a local hutong. Loved every minute of it. Our drive Tsu (Small Dragon) was a wonderful drive!
