I had an amazing 4 days tour with Terry where we visited the main tourist attraction in beijing. He also accommodated our request and took us to have very tasty food of their local cuisine. Peking duck is the must thing to try and Terry knows just the place to take you for it. Since we were landing pass midnight he sent a reliable driver to pick us up from the airport. Terry is very friendly and he keeps up a good timing sense.

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

Classic 2 days Beijing Package Tour

Day 01

Go to the amazing Great wall in the morning,then visit outside of Olympic Stadium and summer palace in the afternoon, we could pass by a traditional chinese tea house and taste the best four kinds of tea for free of charge during the daytime too.

Day 02

Visit the Tian'an men Square and Forbidden city in the morning,and go to hutong and temple of heaven in the afternoon.

Enjoy the Hutong tour in the morning,then have lunch in the local family.

The Hutong Tour starts from along Shishahai near the vegetable and fruit market, In the past, princes', generals' and ministers' housed with courtyards were scattered around the outside of the Forbidden City. Linking up those courtyard houses were lanes and alleys called hutongs. The word "hutong" probably came into use during the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), as it is a Mongolian word, meaning "well". These residential areas were so called because where there is a well, there are people living nearby. As a result, the hutong has become a part of Beijing life and now is an informal symbol of the city. After visiting the Temple of heaven in the afternoon,then we will enjoy the peking duck food in the evening.

Watch the famous KungFu show in the evening.

John was a very enthusiastic and committed tour guide.

I was a bit unsure of what to expect when I booked a tour with John, as there were few reviews on Viator, and none in the last year. (He has many more reviews on TripAdvisor.)

I was not disappointed - John took me to the usual sites of cultural and historical importance that I wanted to see, and some unusual places I picked.

John was polite and friendly, and shared a lot of knowledge about China, and made Beijing feel familiar.

Since of late everyone was talking about China and this made me to decide on a visit to Beijing along with my wife but I was a bit worried as I never knew a word of Chinese. We walked out of the sprawling Beijing airport after a long journey from Detroit. When I met Terry I realized that all my fears were unfounded. He took us to the hotel within minutes but by the time we arrived at the hotel he has briefed us on what to expect during our stay. His English was excellent and my wife was the happ
