I have been traveling throughout Asia for a month and have had many tour guides during this time. Without a doubt, Cathy is the best. She put more smiles on our faces in four days than we had during the rest of our time in Asia. She filled our days and nights with the sights, sounds and food of Beijing. She was always engaged, energetic, and went above and beyond. In all my years of traveling, Cathy stands out as he best tour guide I have ever had. Cathy's love for Beijing will transform your experience.

Cathy was reliable,knowledgeable about the history of Beijing, and very friendly.She had organised our 3 days in Beijing to fit in everything we wanted to do. She organised all our tickets for entries and shows. It made our time so enjoyable and stress free. We could never have seen all the main sights by ourselves. Both drivers,Mr Li and Wang were excellent drivers managing the heavy traffic with skill. We felt safe in their hands.

Cathy did a very good job as our guide. She was very accommodating as I asked for some changes just ahead of the tour and she was able to easily make the adjustments. She also went above and beyond with her preparation as we asked her to take us to a place that was not visited often and she was very well prepared. She has very good English speaking skills and was able to make everything interesting and funny. Thank you Cathy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark ; Lovely day I had with your family also , thanks so much , wish one day have chance come back again ! All best wishes ! Cathy

Date: May 16/18

I spent the last 2 days of my China trip in downtown Beijing, wanting to see the sights. After wandering aimlessly solo the first day, I sought to hire a local guide. I was stoked to find Tours By Locals and get matched w Cathy! She's enthusiastic, energetic, well educated, easy going & fun! She tailored our 7 hour adventure to what I wanted to do, took fun photos and left me w the best impression of historic Beijing. Highlights were Forbidden City, riding the rickshaws thru the Hutongs & a great lunch!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle; Great thanks for your valuable review , it’s a richful day we had , the beautiful sights , the pretty photos we took , the delicious lunch food we had , amazing day ! Hehe ... wholeheartedly wish one day have another chance come back can see again , take care , all best wishes !

Cathy Zhang is a fantastic guide. We arranged a private tour and asked to see 2 different parts of the Great Wall. Cathy arrived in good time and so cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable. She took us to see Huanghuacheng and Mutianyu parts of the wall. We stopped at a fantastic restaurant which was able to cater for my daughter who is a vegan. Cathy also arranged for us to see a show and stayed with us until late with her driver. We made a good friend and highly recommend this tour and company. Thank you!
