We had an afternoon-overnight layover in Beijing. Our guide, Charlie, met us (with car and driver) at PEK arrivals. A good tour, good food and a dropoff at our airport hotel.

I had a really enjoyable evening on this tour. My tour guide Evelyn was very knowledgeable about Beijing and the different neighbourhoods we went to. Seeing all the major sights eliminated in the evening was a great experience.
One highlight was the dinner in a Hutong neighbourhood. One tip for future travellers, if you have the dinner and then go to Wangfujing Food Street afterwards, make sure you leave some room to be able to try the many delicacies on offer there.

I was lucky to book a day tour and a night tour with the same agency. My tour guides could coordinate and we didn’t have to rush to complete our first tour. I got to keep the same driver too who was great. My tour guide Linda was super friendly and accommodating. I was pretty tired after the day tour and exploring the Great Wall. It was perfect to see the city at night and take it easy. Linda took me to a local restaurant for dinner where we ate way to much because the food was so delicious. I was traveling by myself so it was great to have dinner with Linda who quickly became my new friend. Linda also helped me to arrange a driver for the next day when I wanted to explore the city by myself. She was checking with me throughout a day to make sure I was ok, although i know she was pretty busy leading another tour. Thank you so much, Linda!

Jimmy was our tour guide and he was exceptional! He spoke fluent English, was flexible by including a stop at a favorite shop in the Hutong district, took us to dinner at a wonderful, local eatery in which we were the only tourists and the food was delicious, took our pictures, explained the history and Chinese culture from a young person's point of view, and was punctual, professional and fun to be around! Highly recommend!
