My boss and I were in Beijing for a work conference with one real day to hit the Great Wall and a few other “Must See” sights on our list. We heard about DBT from another colleague and immediately booked. The process was smooth, fast and easy. We were accommodated in short notice and given Becky’s name as our guide almost immediately.
When Becky arrived to pick us up that morning (prompt and on time might I add) we instantly fell in love with her. Her english was near perfect and she was extremely approachable, charming, sweet and funny to name a few of her traits. She had printed handouts of China’s history that she eloquently went over on our 2 hour drive to the Great Wall. She also had great Chinese cheat-sheets on the language for clueless Americans to learn. It felt like any question we asked, she knew the answer.
Moreover, we picked a standard “Full Day Great Wall Tour” but ended up craving more to see than just that. While this was not part of our “deal”, Becky never hesitated in extending our day and even custom creating special stops along the way. She took us to Old Beijing, got us a Rickshaw ride to an old home, scored us a private tea tasting and took us to an amazing authentic lunch to name a few! We loved that every part of our day felt special, unique and not overly touristy. So many places matched her stories of the amazing, romantic tapestry that is Beijing as a city.
I can’t recommend DBT and Becky as a guide enough! She MADE our trip and we haven’t been able to stop talking about her!! Thank you so much!
