My colleague was the first one of us to hire Ye Qing as a private tour guide while in Beijing. She then recommended Qing to me. We went to Beijing in 2010 and had a most memorable journey mainly because of Qing. She took us to places where the locals went for food! The best of all, we were able to go see major tourist sights leisurely. We used taxis, buses and subways while in the heart of Beijing. Then, we hired Qing’s husband for a day to Mu Tian Yu, a relatively non-busy but very pretty part of the Great Wall. The ride was pleasant and the van that we used was relatively new and very clean.
After that trip, I recommended Qing to my friend. After his trip, he told me that his kids loved the stories that Qing told.
So, if anyone needs a tour guide in Beijing, I would highly recommend Qing.
