Our experience with Hawk was wonderful! We had an incredible time in Beijing thanks to Hawk who was so absolutely amazing. He clearly understood our priorities and crafted a tour that met all our needs. He was flexible as well, willing to adapt depending on our expressed interests during our tours. He was able to get us access to attractions and avoid long lines along the way. We saved quite a bit of time and we are grateful for his service. I highly recommend him.

We had the pleasure to be guided for a day in Beijing, by Hawk.

Unfortunately we only had time for one day sigthseeing, but Hawk handled it perfectly.

His knowledge of the attractions is great. He is trusty, humorous, on time, and very easy to talk with.

We can highly recommand Hawk as a guide.

He told us that he know a lady who is licenced guide too, named Ellen Lan, who is very simular to him.

If we come back to Beijing, we will certainly book Hawk again or mabye both.

Thank for a gre

We had Hawk as our tour guide in Beijing, he picked us up at our hotel at 7.30am and took us to The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace and then back to our hotel. We would highly recommend Hawk to everyone, his English was excellent, his knowledge on China outstanding, we hope to stay in contact with Hawk and his family and will highly recommend him to all our friends and business associates.

He was amazing!! Super informative and timely. Adapted the tour to our needs and helped us order for dinner and lunch when we could not understand the menu. He had tons of historical information and answered all of our questions concerning the cultural and social differences. His License helped us skip all the lines! And he was a wonderful photographer!

We were very satisfied with the offer and the actual performance of Hawk. A wonderful full 3-day program in Beijing with a comfortable van without tourists traps. As planned, starting with pick-up from train at 23:30! Hawk is very knowledgeable, humorous, nice and speaks very good English. We wish him all the best and will recommend him definitely. Klaudia, Laurent and the three children: Julien, Sophie, Jeremy, love from Luxembourg

5 stars Jasmine T. 16 Jul 2014

We were a group of 4 adults and 3 kids. Hawk was extremely knowledgeable and humorous. The children enjoyed his company very much. He listened to what I wanted due to the limitations of our group ( kids tired out easily) and was able to tailor a tour that fit our needs and exceeded our expectations. He was very patient with our requests and even helped us create an itinerary for our next day without a guide and arrange for airport transfer on our last day. Genuinely a nice guy!

5 stars Mark F. 10 Nov 2013

My wife and I recently returned from Beijing and after recommendations from friends, we decided to engage a private guide.

We had such a positive experience that we wanted write a review (first ever).

Hawk is such a knowledgeable, humourous, patient, helpful guide. It may not be clear from his profile but he has been showing people around the sights of Bejing for more than 12 years and it shows. Space limitations prevent me from saying more, but I cannot recommend his services highly enough.

5 stars liz N. 27 Oct 2013

Hawk is great - we've already recommended him to others. He speak english well and is pleasant to have as a tour guide. He gives great suggestions and tailor makes your experience and is very knowledgeable. Plus he knows the city [which is massive] so for our short trip he made it worth while. Also, he's super sweet nice and fun. he always made sure we knew where we were going when we left him. Definitely book Hawk!

5 stars Vivianne B. 06 Oct 2013

Hawn did a lot of efforts for us that NO OTHER GUIDE wanted to do. We planned to visit the Great Wall, see only the easiest part of the Jiankou section, and then finish with the renovated Mutianyu section. In four hours, we saw a part of the "Wild Wall" in complete security, made lots of pictures, before we discovered the renovated part. Hawn succeeded to find an entrance that no one knew and did a lot of research before starting our trip. Thank you Hawk for the wonderful day. Amélie Murino

5 stars Cesar C. 13 Jun 2013

Hawk, excellent tour guide, definitively I recommend him.

5 stars Enrique R. 03 May 2013

Hawk was great!! We used him for three days including pick up from the Cruise ship terminal in Tianjin after getting off the Diamond Princess. He provided great tours of the Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and various other places. He was great with our four year twins and provided professional transportation. Took the ladies to excellent shopping areas. Overall, the best!! Thanks again Hawk, Enrique

5 stars Christine A. 24 Apr 2013

My husband, 2 young teens and myself had a great day with Hawk. He was helpful from the first contact, prompt, with a great driver and full of interesting information. We loved the Great Wall, the kids especially, loved the toboggan down the mountain! The Summer Palace was crowded but Hawk managed to find quiet spots to tell us the history etc. Hawk even advised us on things to do / not do for the rest of our stay. Thanks so much!

5 stars John B. 19 Apr 2013

Tour was a great success. Hawk did a great job and apart from putting together an itinerary he can be relied on for anything from the history of the Qing dynasty to advice on the weather, price negotiations with street vendors and selection of restaurants.

5 stars Ian M. 12 Oct 2012

We spent two fantastic days with Hawk in Beijing. For day one he arranged a car and driver to go to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, which was more impressive than expected. We walked for a couple of hours and got an appreciation for the engineering and human feat it is. On the return, we diverted to Beijing Zoo for a quick visit to the pandas, which we had not mentioned in advance. Then to a private home in a Hutong on a rickshaw ride. A fantastic day overall with a top notch guide.

5 stars Glenda C. P. 23 Sep 2012

Hawk was really very kind and helpful.

He speaks a really good english and he takes care of really everything you could need. We really had a wonderful tour in Beijing with him and helped us to have a really traditional lunch (damplings) and dinner (roasted peking duck). We really suggest to have a tour with him if you are in the Beijing area!!! Thank you so much Hawk!

5 stars Phey Y. C. 22 Aug 2012

Hawk was a kind and warm and, no doubt, he was an excellent tour guide! I was traveling in Beijing with my family for about a week. He came pick us up at the airport with a rental van and the driver was a kind man too! He planned the itinerary well for us and he introduced the histories of all the places very well to me and my family and we like the sense of his humor! We had so much fun during our trip in Beijing with him! If you need a guide in Beijing, I would highly recommend Hawk! Miss you!

5 stars Jane R. 17 Jul 2012

Hawk was a really nice person to be with during our Beijing tour. He accommodated our changing ideas of what we wanted to do, was really on top of all the factual questions we asked, and it was so interesting discussing all sorts of topics with him. His English is very good indeed and he has a great sense of humour. I would warmly recommend his services to Beijing visitors - it is such a huge city that a guide is almost essential if you are not in a group - and Hawk is the best!

5 stars Lorraine G. 12 Jul 2011

Hawk was an exceptional tour guide in every respect. I was traveling alone in Beijing for four days. He met me at the airport and took me to the hotel. During my stay he showed me the main attractions in a customized way. He was a very knowledgeable guide and translator who introduced me to the local culture including food, history, architecture, etc. He shared interesting stories as we toured the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Hutongs, Zoo, and much more. Excellent experience!

5 stars lucy L. 02 Jan 2011

Very kind and professional tour guide, introduced a lot of interesting histories and lovely food. Enjoy his accompany so much.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks Lucy. Welcome to Beijing again with your friends.

5 stars Joanne G. 14 Jun 2010

Hawk is a rather elegant guy. Great English, sharp dresser, very intelligent, absolutely professional. He was hired for 2 days to take myself and my two daughters (12 & 14) to specific things we wanted to see. While in the van, he volunteered to give us a lesson in Chinese symbols. His driver is excellent and knows how to get to the front of lines and inside blocked off areas. I would absolutely hire him again.

Tour Guide Comment: Really appreciated. Very happy to know you enjoy your holidays here.

Hawk wren was a very good, well organized and responsive guide. He took our family of 4 all around Beijing for 3 days. His english is good and his knowledge of history and the attractions helped bring China to life for our family.

He also aranged our car for us on all 3 days - plus the airport transportation. The vehicle was new and clean.
