Beijing Tours fully deserve their reputation. My guide was Becky, and she did an outstanding job showing me around the Forbidden City, the Hutong area, the markets, the shops around the lake and the Olympic ‘bird’s nest’ Stadium in a compact 7 hour ride. Her English was excellent and she was patient to explain every question irrespective how ignorant that might have been. The organization was excellent and the driver (Qing’s husband!) was kind and on-time. The visit to the Hutong and Qing’s family home was one of my top points. I highly recommend them!
