My wife and I  just returned from 5 days in Beijing. Amber organized everything for us. We did 2 days in Beijing and 1 day in Xian. Our Beijing guide Amber was super-friendly, and provided us with a lot of history and facts. In addition she always knew the best spots for taking pictures. Jenny is our Xian tour guide. Her English is extremely impressive and her knowledge of the history of Xian and it’s highlights is extensive. 

A very good way to visit the best sights in Beijing & Xian!

I booked with Amber before leaving home, pick up at airport on arrival in Beijing to hotel and then a day trip for the Great Wall for 5 of us. She responded to emails promptly and courteously. It was all flawless. Amber is very bubbly and friendly, a pleasure to spend the day with her. She was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. She was fun to be with, very patient, generous with her time. Her English was excellent. The Really enjoyed our day with Amber and would highly recommend.

5 stars Srishti S. 23 Sep 2018

My husband and I had an amazing time in Beijing with the services organised by Amber - a private tour guide & drive. Amber herself was unable to join us, but Mr Wang, our tour guide, was an absolute delight. Our drive, also named Wang, was very nice as well -always on time and though he couldn't speak English, he used a translate app on his phone to communicate with us. The best aspect was the flexibility with sights & shows as well as timing that Amber and her team provided. Highly Recommended!

This one day tour has been beautiful. Both tour guide and driver are polite and attentive. Amber knowledge in Forbidden City and Summer Palace is fantastic and make the tour more interesting.

The driver is good, safe the whole things! Recommend them!

5 stars Simon K. 09 May 2018

During our 3 day trip to Beijing, we spent 1 day with Amber visiting Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City and The Great Wall. The Forbidden City Tour Skip the Line as great as there was a big crowd but no waiting. Amber was fantastic, her English was great and was very knowledgeable. She knew the answers to all of our questions and tailored the trip to our needs.  Our driver was very kind and professional, always ready and waiting to pick us up, and the vehicle was smart, clean and modern. We ha

We enjoyed every minute of the tour thanks to our guide Amber. Her personality made the experience very interactive and fun. Would highly recommend her if travelling to Beijing and want a great guide who is also flexible to things you may want to see that aren't on the normal beaten path.

5 stars Micevicius T. 04 Mar 2018

5 stars for our guide Amber. She is friendly and very knowledgeable and told us many interesting stories about past emperors.  She and driver Liu were always on time and happy to change the itinerary if we required. The mini-van is clean and comforable for our big family - 8 persons. A great and memorable day! We highly recommend !!!

5 stars Taylor R. 23 Feb 2018

Amber was our tour guide for two days in Beijing. She met us in the lobby of our hotel on time and the vehicle was brand new. She was wonderful! She is knowledgeable, had great English, fun to be with, and flexible!

Everything was very well organised and went to plan. I highly recommend this tour if you visit Beijing.

5 stars Fawaz K. 21 Aug 2017

The guide was extremely helpful, pleasant and informative. His English was extremely good and he was very pleasant to interact with. Of course, he took me to some tourist shops/traps but I did not mind. When I asked him about it, he we upfront with the commission he got from bring customers there. My one day in Beijing was extremely well spent. The transport (Audi A6) was very clean and impressive. I will fully recommend this service for Beijing!

5 stars Carrie G. 05 Apr 2017

Amber was very responsive when we were planning our visit! She helped make our trip a wonderful experience! We were fortunate to have Angela as our guide - she took very good care of us each day. Our first day ended in a theatre watching fantastic acrobats. The second day was the Great Wall (Mutianyu section) followed by Summer Palace with another delicious lunch at a local restaurant.

Her pricing is also quite reasonable. Highly recommended!!

5 stars Merriam W. 07 Mar 2017

Amber was very prompt to return my emails, which is a great start. Being the day before I needed a tour, I didn't expect her to be available, which she wasn't....but she did recommend a friend, Susan, who's a full time professional tour guide and has been for 8 years. Her English is very good and totally understandable, and she's extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Price was fair, including a driver. I'd use these ladies again in a second.

5 stars George F. 21 Feb 2017

Excelllent experience with Amber. She was kind, funny and knowledgeable. She tailored an itinerary to meet our needs, was flexible and arranged transport from our hotel to Mutianyu Great wall. The driver was excellent in getting us around with frequent stops.

I would book again without hesitation!

We had excellent day trip with our tour guide Amber in Beijing. We did the Great Wall and Summer Palace Tour which was fantastic. Amber is excellent and very knowledgeable. She is clearly passionate about the history and was patient with our lots of questions. Really recommend Amber Lu!

5 stars Alex C. 13 Jan 2017

We had an absolutely perfect day tour to the Forbidden City/Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall (Mutianyu section)!

Amber is the best guide we ever had and we had many tours all around the globe. Her English is excellent as well as her knowledge about all the places we visited. She provided us with so much information while giving us also time to rest and absorb what we saw. She always had a smile, and despite doing the tour repeatedly, somehow was enthusiastic about everything we did and saw.

5 stars Aston K. 09 Jan 2017

We've been to the Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming tombs with Amber during our 72-hour stay in Beijing. Amber was very responsive and she immediately replied, answered and provided me all information I need to plan for my trip. Really knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Highly recommended!

5 stars Knox A. 01 Jan 2017

We started our visit to Beijing at the airport and had Amber arrange pickup and drop us off at our hotel just as planned!

The next morning we were picked up right on time by our tour driver and off we went to collect the rest of the tour members and our guide, Amber.

Our guide Amber made our visit special and a highlight of our trip to Asia.

Her insights into local life as well as her own personal life and her understanding of all the sites we visited made the tour very memorable.

Booked this tour in advance via the internet. All pre-arrangements and the tour day itself went smoothly. Amber, our English speaking guide, met us at our hotel at 9am right on schedule and she was amazing! Her English was excellent and she was very informative. I asked lots of questions and always got good responses from her. Amber did an amazing service and we were not disappointed. We cannot thank her enough for her kindness, knowledge, or upbeat attitude throughout our tours.

5 stars Willow H. 15 Dec 2012

I was very satisfied with the tour. If anything, it exceeded my expectations. Amber spoke excellent English, was very knowledgeable and accommodating to my needs. In addition, she was very friendly, and we saw all of the major sites in Beijing. She also help us arrange the Buick Gl8 with good price. The car is clean and in good condition. Driver was also very polite, friendly. I would recommend this tour without any reservations to my friends or to anyone going to Beijing.


4 stars Helen P. 19 Jul 2018

Amber was unable to be our guide so she had her friend Wang show us around instead. Wang was great. Amber had already set up tickets for some events to avoid waiting in line. That helped a lot. Wang and our driver were flexible and nice.

2 stars Edward H. 21 Apr 2019

"Amber Lu" at Viator seems to be a portal to a much larger group of Beijing tour guides. All of "Amber's" email correspondence with us, which WAS very professional, was sent from "Lulu Shao," another purported Chinese tour guide with "her own" website. 90 minutes before "Amber" was supposed to meet us at our hotel, she emailed us that her grandmother was sick and that Henry would be our guide. Our guide who called himself Li, was kind but boring if not incomprehensible in his explanations.

1 stars Alvin S. 10 Feb 2019

We were thoroughly disappointed with our our guide, who failed to do the basic preparation for our visit, and then was repeatedly dishonest in her communication with us. I would not recommend her to anyone!

Tour Guide Comment: I cherish each review from clients no matter it's positive or negtive,and I do believe some negtive ones will turn out to be good ones if I can take it as best advice from clients and it will do good to us and future clients as well. I’m so sorry that you missed Forbidden City.
