Tour: Beijing Hutong Breakfast Food Tour, Beijing, China
Date: Dec 27/18

Roy was our guide, and of all our tours while visiting China, he was the most knowledgeable guide. We explained my food allergy ahead of time, and he was very careful to make sure I was safe. We saw interesting parts of Beijing that we would never have found without his help. The food great! The donkey burger was one of our favorites. We ate in local restaurants with locals, ordering food that we would have never tried without this tour. It is a great way to spend an evening, but come hungry.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening tour with Roy and have no hesitation in recommending him. He was very easy to communicate with and went out of his way to ensure we had a good time. We also appreciated that he helped arrange transport to the airport the next day which was a big help. We would gladly use Roy again on a future trip to China.

We are so glad we booked this night tour of Beijing, and especially glad Roy was our guide. It was great driving around the city and seeing the major sites lit up at night, providing a completely different experience. A highlight for us was visiting the lake area and the market. If you dont experience the market at night, then you are really missing so ething. Roy made this and other parts of the evening fun and informative. See Beijing at night, and feel good about doing it with Roy!

Tour: 2-Day Private Beijing Cultural Tour with Chinese Lunch, Beijing, China
Date: Nov 20/18

We could not have picked a better tour guide for our trip to Beijing. We were looking for a guide and transportation for 2 full days, and Roy created the perfect customized tour for us. His English is excellent, he's an intelligent and engaging speaker, and if you're looking for non-touristy food, he'll take you to the BEST locals-only restaurants! I highly recommend Roy, and will definitely use him again when I return to Beijing.

Date: Oct 31/18

Coming to an unknown country you need someone who takes the stress out of the experience. Roy is friendly & knowledgeable. But more importantly he's accommodating and honest. If we ever comeback to China - Roy would be my guide. He genuinely cares you have a good experience. You won't go wrong choosing Roy.

Roy gives an outstanding tour of The Great Wall and Summer Palace! He's everything you'd want in a tour guide: friendly engaging personality, knowledgeable, punctual, organized. Every aspect delivered as advertised and more. His discussion of Chinese history and culture enroute to the sites is worth the cost of the tour by itself! Roy gave options at each site to best use our time. Very nice car transport and lunch among locals added to the day. See you again Roy for another few days in Beijing!

Very good tour. Roy was very flexible and we were able to change the tour several times as we were going to better match my interests, time and comfort. Overall, great experience and wonderful memories. The Great Chinese Wall is a must to visit and the sliding back down was fun!

Date: Oct 8/18

You can't go wrong booking this tour guide, Roy is an excellent guide with an unparalleled knowledge in the facts and dates of Beijing and China history, he is very flexible and works very hard to make your tour an experience of a lifetime, we used him for 2 days. The first a night time tour which was great, stops for drum tower, the snack street and the lake area were very interesting. The next day forbidden city and the great Wall were fabulous. His driver and Roy are very professional.

Roy struck the right balance of finding delicious eats and pushing me out of my comfort zone. This tour is something I would have never attempted on my own and it was great mixing with the locals. Extra bonus: Roy is great at explaining the subway system!

Roy's command of Chinese history is impressive making this tour far more informative than looking at antiquities. Roy's English is equally impressive and he's a super nice guy! Highly recommend.

My food tour of Beijing was an awesome experience!! Roy was the perfect guide. He did an excellent job explaining the food culture of China and all of the food we ate. Roy also taught me how to navigate the metro system. My only regret was not doing another tour with Roy while in Beijing!! Five stars !! Thanks again Roy!!!
