Vivie Pan Private tour guide in Beijing - China

Vivie Pan

Guide profile:

This is Vivie Pan. I'm a licensed English tour guide in Beijng since 2007. I like my job very much. It gives me the best chance to meet the people from all over the world.

Beijing is the capital city in China. It's also one of the most popular destination for tourists. A reliable tour guide will bring you the most memorible trip and experience. And I believe that I'm your best choice. I have a nice car of 4 seats and a brand-new Buick van of 7 seats. It's not common to see the lady drivers in Beijing. But I'm a careful and safe lady driver. I will give you a very reasonable and comparative price for the car rental since it's my own car.

You will not disappointed with my service in Beijing.

My tour guide fee is 100 USD for one day. Which is not including the transportation. The cost of the car or van is different. It depends on the itinerary schedule. So please don't book with me directly on Viator without sending me a message to confirm the quotation.

Hope I can help you with your Beijing visit.

Happy travel! Happy Viator!

Vivie wasn't available the dates we were in Beijing, but she arranged for another guide, Jason, who was absolutely amazing! We spent two days with Jason visiting the Great Wall, Summer Palace, The Forbidden City and highlights of Beijing. Jason was professional, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He accommodated everyone's needs over the two days. I would highly recommend Vivie and Jason. Vivie even gave us a parting gift. So thoughtful!!

5 stars Jackie H. 20 Apr 2019

I highly recommend Vivie as a tour guide in Beijing. I had a list of places that I wanted to see and she recommended how best to organise the 2 days we had in Beijing. She is very friendly, knowledgeable and speaks a good english. Her recommendations of where to go for local food were excellent. She also gave us great advice on how to bargain when buying things. She is very professional as was made clear to us by the way she dealt with an incident that we had and we really appreciated this

5 stars Joanna H. 16 Apr 2019

Contacted Vivie to ask questions about her services. She was very patient responding back and forth to all my questions. We eventually decided just to book an English speaking driver Ben was a really nice man, shared good information with us and was very kind and thoughtful. He arrived promptly at our hotel, time as confirmed by email from Vivie the previous day. Car was spotless and he also provided bottled water. I would absolutely use Vivie again.

5 stars Hillary S. 03 Apr 2019

Vivie was a marvelous tour guide. She showed us Beijing over the course of 3 days. We didn't have to worry about a thing - she took care of it all, and more. She's organized, knowledgeable and fun to be with!

5 stars David D. 16 Mar 2019

Vivie was great with our family. We have 3 kids (6-12 yo) and she took us to the great wall in the morning, beating the crowds which was amazing, and to lunch, then finishing at the summer palace. She was so patient with us and fun to be with. Would highly recommend and will contact again if we find ourselves back in Beijing!

We had an absolutely wonderful time in Beijing with Vivie. She is very knowledgeable and is a delightful person to meet. She was kind enough a prepare a little fruit basket as I'm a vegetarian and had also picked out the most awesome Buddhist vegetarian restaurant for our meal. She even went out of her way helping us out with an important errand - really grateful to her for that and I would certainly recommend her services.

Vivie is Excellent. Super accommodating, very knowledgeable of the places we visited and helpful with everything we wanted to do--including helping us to book a table for dinner at a super busy restaurant . She also suggested to us a few restaurants in Beijing and explained the history of the restaurants. She took us everywhere on our list that we wanted to go and is very flexible when we wanted to change the itineraries at the last minute. Highly recommend Vivie!

5 stars Erle N. 07 Dec 2018

It was a good experience to travel and see the great wall and the forbidden temple with ms Vivie who is a fluent english speaker, experienced tour guide, and very organized. My family enjoyed with her during the tour.

5 stars Vicki W. 23 Nov 2018

Vivie was very helpful organising a driver for us and answering lots of our questions. Nothing was too insignificant to ask her. The driver she organised for us was very friendly and helpful, waiting for us at the airport (even though we were late) and another day driving us to the Great Wall, Sacred Way, and helping us buy tickets and lunch. We had a great day!

5 stars John A. 04 Nov 2018

Have just returned from China and Beijing, Vive had organised a guide for us, Lucy and her driver were terrific. There's no way would have been able to see sites and the culture without her. When she took us to the Great Wall, we arrived well before the crowds and were able to spend time there with no other tourists, it was incredible, highly recommend Vive and her team

5 stars Sabrina H. 02 Sep 2018

Vivie was a wonderful tour guide! She wasn’t prompt to pick us up in the morning at our hotel. Her husband was our driver for the day and service was great. We started with the Great Wall. The weather was not great she did everything she could to make our time there great. Including providing us umbrellas and waters! Her knowledge of the sites is excellent and her English is great. She guided us through a hot pot lunch and provided great dinner suggestions too. We had a great tour! Thank you!!

5 stars Joanna A. 25 Aug 2018

I had a day tour with Vivie in August '18 and it was one of the best experiences of my life. She was organised, punctual, incredibly knowledgeable about everything, and a real pleasure to be with. Her car was clean and airconditioned. She suggested we go to the Wall very early, which was such a brilliant idea as there was hardly anyone there, and huge crowds waiting when we left. I would recommend Vivie to any kind of group, and I am looking forward to bringing my family back for another tour!

5 stars Bianca B. 18 Aug 2018

We had the pleasure to have Vivie plan our very short and impact full 1.5 days in Beijing. Vivie hosted us for our first day and was super professional and friendly. She kept our needs and energy levels as indicator of the pace of the day. On the second day we had the pleasure of being hosted by Sherry - and was equally spoiled friendliness and excellent knowledge. I can highly recommend Vivie and Sherry as tour guides, they are warm, friendly, thoughtful with excellent knowledge

5 stars Emmitt T. 28 Jun 2018

She will definitely be the person I recommend to family and friends in need of a tour guide while in Beijing!!

5 stars Kelly S. 13 Oct 2017

Vivie does a great job helping plan and deliver what is needed. My first day was with Jenny, an english speaking driver. I wanted to visit a number of shopping areas and didn't need a tour but someone that could help me navigate. I had District 798, Panjiayuan market (antiques) and the Pearl Mkt on my list. Jenny met me at the airport. I had challenges with a money order and Jenny navigated for me and added time at end of tour. She was a wonderful person and tour guide. I highly recommend!

5 stars Tami C. 26 Jun 2017

Vivie is terrific. Super accommodating and helpful with everything we wanted to do--including trying to find details about obscure skate parks in Beijing! Though she was unable to guide us, she set us up with happy, friendly Cindy who met us at the train station and took us everywhere on our list that we wanted to go! Highly recommend Vivie and her team!

5 stars Ilangkovan J. 04 Jun 2017

Excellent service. Lucy the guide and Wong the driver were fantastic. Lucy is knowledgeable and very entertaining. They were always on time and were very flexible with the schedule. When going from one site to the next we never waited for more than a couple of minutes to be picked up, no delays, The restaurants Lucy recommended were very good, we enjoyed our lunches while on the tour. If we go back to Beijing for a second visit we will definitely use Vivie's services again.

5 stars Garth H. 06 May 2017

Her insight and guidance made this a memorable experience. What ever you do book Her for you tour, it is money well spent.

5 stars Lee S. 15 Apr 2017

Although Vivie wasn't available due to her pregnancy she did plan a great itinerary including dinner reservations at one of the best Peking Duck restaurants in town. Her associate, Murphy, was an experienced guide and we spent two full days exploring Beijing with my family of four including two 10 years olds. We saw Multianyu Great Wall, Tian'anmen, Forbidden City, the Beijing Zoo and rode the rickshaws to see the Old Beijing Hutongs. She also arranged a fun dumpling and noodle cooking class!

5 stars George L. 08 Apr 2017

Our flight arrived 1.5 hours late at almost 2:00AM in Beijing. What a welcome sight to see my name printed on a paper and held up by our guide. He was courteous, helpful, he took us to our hotel and then to the Great Wall of China. All in all a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

5 stars Jessica P. 04 Apr 2017

Fantastic experience all around! Book Vivie without any hesitation! She is charming, knowledgeable and a lovely person. You can't ask for a better guide to show you the Great Wall and the wonders of Beijing. Her recommendations for dining and sightseeing were perfect. We loved meeting her and her family too. Thank you, Vivie for a memorable day!!

Highly recommended!

5 stars Daniel L. 31 Dec 2016

Our experience with Vivie was above expectations. She picked us up from the airport upon arrival that is situated at the hotel in the next day we went to the Great Wall and the summer palace. The following day we were able to go to the hutongs in Beijing as well as the Tiananmen Square and the forbidden city. She was very engaging in explaining the history behind our experience. I would certainly recommend Vivie!

Vivie was ill but arranged for her associate Rita Ren to escort us around Beijing for three days (two days with driver).

We highly recommend her and Vivie.

5 stars Linda R. 25 Oct 2016

Vivie was amazing! We had a layover in Beijing and wanted to see the Great Wall. In preparation for our trip, she was very helpful in handling the details and emailing me quickly. We got to the Wall at 7:30 a.m. and were the only ones there. It was amazing to be on the wall by ourselves. Vivie allowed us good time and got us to the airport in plenty of time. Her English was very good and she made the trip memorable. Highly recommend Vivie!!!

My family recently visited Beijing. At the last minute I booked a tour with Vivie. She was not available, but arranged for Linda and Lucy to guide us around. Both Linda and Lucy were very personable and informative. We covered a lot in 3 days. I was very appreciative of Vivie's quick response to my initial inquiry and lining up the guides for us. Everything worked out so well.

I hope to make another trip to Beijing at some point in the future and would certainly contact Vivie again.

5 stars Tim I. 13 Sep 2016

Vivie Pan was an excellent tour guide, could not have asked for more and would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to have a private guide in Beijing and surrounds.

Her local knowledge and knowledge of the history and culture was excellent. Because of this we were able to see and understand a lot more about the culture of Beijing than if we had gone on a large group tour.

Thanks Vivie for being a great guide and we now feel we have a friend in Beijing.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you again for choosing my service in Beijing. It was so nice to meet your family.

5 stars Pat K. 09 Sep 2016

Vivie is an excellent tour guide. She's very knowledgeable about every aspect, from history, culture, food and getting around this huge, complex city. She is friendly, easy going and has great connections that make your trip go smoothly. Vivie made sure that we were able to visit all of our key destinations, and even stayed late to get us to a wonderful evening acrobatic performance.We will remember our trip fondly. Thank you Vivie!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your wonderful review. Pat.

5 stars Pathana N. 04 Sep 2016

I could not secure Vivie but she provided an excellent alternate guide, Rita Ren. Communication leading up to the tour was excellent and the tour experience continued with great service! I even had two friends want to join the great wall tour last minute so Rita and team was able to secure a larger vehicle to accommodate the additional people. Rita was a delight and listened to our feedback when we requested to dine in more of a traditional area and her recommendations were excellent.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your feedback about the tour with Rita. Rita has enjoyed to spend the time with your group also. She said that you're all very friendly and easy-going. Hope we will have chance to meet each other next time when you come to Beijing.

5 stars Orlando C. 13 Aug 2016

Vivie was the best guide I ever had. She organized the transfer from/to the airport, she arranged a perfect day in the Great Wall, and a day around Beijing. She knows everything about Beijing and his history. Everything was perfectly organized. She's a fluent english speaker and she's also a nice person. Highly reccomended !

5 stars Benjamin S. 07 May 2016

Excellent guide through Beijing. Recommended.

5 stars Charlie L. 30 Apr 2016

Vivie was a great guide. We were a family of four with 2 kids aged 9 and 12. We arranged a day tour of the Wall and Forbidden City. Vivie even arranged acrobatics show tickets and transfer to the airport. The local restaurant she took us to was our favorite meal. Vivie is easy to talk to and overall a very knowledgable tour guide. We were very pleased with our experience. We wish her all the best!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Charlie. I have enjoyed the time with your family also. The kids are so lovely.

5 stars Charlotte A. 16 Apr 2016

Vivie was great in any respect; thank you Vivie you made our stay really exceptional! Me and my mom had 2 days booked with her mid-April 2016. We did 1 day tour to great wall and summer palace and 2nd day beijing city tour with the most important sights. Vivie is very attentive, helpful, punctual, knowledgable and has a good sense of humor. It is also great advantage that she is driving her own car while she can already tell you a lot of interesting things. We highly recommend her.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your wonderful review, Dear Charlotte.

5 stars Matthew L. 14 Apr 2016

Vivie was a fantastic guide on our first "whirlwind" visit to Beijing. She gave a great commentary for all of the sites that we visited including the Forbidden City and Hutongs and even managed to arrange clear blue skies and nearly no other tourists on our visit to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. Vivie's van was extremely comfortable and her recommendations of the best place to go for Peking Duck was spot on. All in all a fantastic trip and we highly recommend Vivie if you are touring Beijing.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Best Reg. Vivie

5 stars James F. 08 Apr 2016

I would give Vivie 7 stars if I could. She was excellent, comprehensive, knowledgeable, friendly, organized. I booked a tour for 12 (ages 8 to 80). She and a driver picked us up from the ship at Tianjin port, took us to the Great Wall at Mutianyu where you can take a ski lift up and toboggan down. Then we toured the Summer Palace before getting dropped off at our hotel. She made everything so pleasant and enjoyable. She even arranged for the driver to take us to the airport, two days later

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was so nice to meet you and your family in Beijing.

5 stars Neil B. 12 Mar 2016

5 stars Erin R. 24 Oct 2015

Vivie was an excellent tour guide! She was very knowledgeable, professional, fun and kind. My husband and I visited Beijing recently along with 3 of our adult children and used her as our guide. We were able to visit all the sites we had on our list despite only having 1 1/2 days for our stay. Vivie arranged a meal and rides from and to the airport for us as well. Her pricing is reasonable and her car very comfortable. We highly recommend her!

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Erin Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was very nice to meet your family in Beijing. Keep in touch. Best Vivie

5 stars Scott W. 17 Oct 2015

My wife and I visited Bejing for 8 nights in October 2015 and used Vivie for 4 of those days. Her English was excellent with no problem understanding her or she us. Even for the days she did not guide us she helped us with rail tickets, show tickets, taxi info, shopping etc. She used "insider" shortcuts to help us avoid lines and delays at major sites. She also connected us with an excellent guide for Xian. We can't recommend her highly enough. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED IN ANY WAY! USE HER!!

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Scott Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Best Vivie

5 stars Karl B. 10 Sep 2015

We used a number of private guides during our trip to Asia. Vivie was one of the best. She was very prompt and helpful during our initial email conversation and helped us put together a great itinerary for our three day stay in Beijing. In fact, she recommended a less crowded part of the Great Wall and our hike along it was one of the best days ever, anywhere. During your stay in Beijing, you can count on Vivie to be prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. You simply can't go wrong with Vivie.

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Karl Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Best Vivie

5 stars Gary P. 20 Aug 2015

We were a group of 5 and it was our first try at using a private tour guide. Vivie was fantastic from the first moment we contacted her. Our day touring with her was very memorable. Vivie was polite, friendly & professional & knows Beijing intimately. Her Buick is super comfortable & her English very good. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Gary It was very nice to meet you and your friends in Beijing. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Best Reg. Vivie

5 stars Matthew L. 14 Jul 2015

It being the first time in Beijing for some of my family members - none of whom speak Mandarin fluently - we engaged Vivie for three days. She's an experienced guide who saved us time and money on multiple occasions. She also brought us to hidden gems less frequented by tourists within Mutianyu and the Summer Palace. Overall, we were impressed by her professionalism, and by her warm and caring nature. It was well worth it to engage Vivie - it was a pleasure to have her with us!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you again for choosing my service in Beijing. It was so nice to meet your family. Best Vivie

5 stars Suzanne S. 07 May 2015

The Perfect guide. We went to the Great Wall early to avoid the crowds, and had the Wall to ourselves for over an hour! Special photos! Saw everything we wanted and ate at the best restaurants. She even helped with train tickets and walked us through the station and made sure our ticket was right and we were in the correct waiting room. If you are going to Beijing, don't hesitate book Vivie. She is the best. Wish I could have had Vivie for the whole trip! Can't recommend her more highly. Perfect

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Suzanne. Best Vivie

5 stars Carolyn B. 30 Apr 2015

5 stars Lynda L. 21 Apr 2015

I would like to thank Vivie for her attentiveness and thoughtfulness during our first trip to Beijing. She is very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot from her about the history of China.

Also she even went to the extent of making reservation for us at a popular restaurants and ensuring that we will have a table for dinner.

We would highly recommend her to be your personal tour guide.

Thanks Vivie!

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Lynda Thank you so much for your wonderful review for me. It was so nice to meet you in Beijing also. Best Reg. Vivie

5 stars wolfgang A. 17 Apr 2015

Vivie is for sure the best tour guide to explore Beijing. Very knowledgable, attentive and informative to all details. She always arrived in time with her new Buick Van (she is a good driver) and her English was excellent.

I highly recommend Vivie to anyone who wants to tour Beijing.

Vivie, thank you again for the wonderful time in Beijing.

5 stars Palak S. 05 Apr 2015

A long overdue review. Vivie made the Beijing trip in April so much nicer for us. She is very organized and friendly who takes care of you very well. Besides showing us around, she helped us book show tickets, spa slots and even took us shopping at local markets! Really appreciate the small things that she took care of without asking. Don't think twice and just book with her and she will make all effort to make your trip memorable. I think I met a friend rather than a guide! Thanks Vivie

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your wonderful review. I do feel that you're like a friend also. You're so nice and easy-going. Hope we can meet again when you come back to Beijing. Best Vivie

5 stars Tara L. 04 Apr 2015

As a family of four adults we spent two excellent days with Vivie in Beijing. She is an outstanding guide and deserves the utmost praise for her professionalism and personality.

Fantastic guide and excellent restaurant choice!

Excelent tour and great person. I was able to see much more that what I expected thanks to Vivie recommendation. She is very reliable and eventhough I ran into problems to get out of the airport, she was patience and I'm very happy I booked her because another tour guide may have not been as patience.

Ps. Don't miss the salad at the pekin duck restaurant... I'm glad I listen to Vivian and ordered...was soooo good.

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Lucia Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Best Reg. Vivie

Vivie was fantastic. She was extremely professional but also very sensitive to our family's interests. We were also impressed by her ability to deal with Beijing's traffic.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for your support, dear Jennifer.

5 stars HL W. 30 Dec 2014

My brother and I went with Vivie to Mutianyu Great Wall and Dingling. It was my second time to both places but this was more enjoyable than my first trip. Vivie suggested we take the chair lift up to the Great Wall and the toboggan down which was very fun. For lunch, she took us to a small restaurant with good local food. Along the way we had good conversation and it felt like we had already known Vivie before this. She was very generous in sharing information and tips. Highly recommended guide!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you, Huilian. See you again in Beijing.

5 stars Celia L. 23 Dec 2014

It was our second visit to Beijing. We learned so much more this time because of Vivie. She is very knowledgeable in general. Answered all our questions with detail information. Our itinerary was well planned and she was very flexible with our requests. She took us to great places for meals. We had a wonderful time in Beijing. I highly recommend Vivie if you are looking for a tour guide in Beijing.

5 stars Rachael H. 24 Sep 2014

We had Vivie as a guide for the Great Wall and Summer palace. She was fabulous! She was very knowledgeable, fun, her English was excellent and she was a good driver. She went above and beyond with further recommendations for our stay and made sure we didn't get the 'Tourist' price.

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Rachael . Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I really appreciate with your support.

5 stars Tess T. 07 Sep 2014

Vivie was outstanding and went well beyond what we might have expected. Her English was first class, she is bright, amusing, articulate and enormously helpful. Aside from the touring of the various icons of Beijings she always took us to great lunch restaurants - ate far too much - where where she seemed to manage to get past the queues given the Autumn holiday crowds. Amazingly - possibly because Vivie 'prayed' - the last 2 days were crystal clear so the views from The Wall were spectacular.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for the wonderful review, Tess. It was very very nice to meet your group in Beijing.

5 stars Felicity H. 22 Aug 2014

We only had one day to tour Beijing. Vivie was a great guide as we visited The Great Wall, Tinnamen Square,Temple of Heaven, The Hutongs and we also managed to having peking duck at a local restaurant for lunch. Vivie was very informative in regards to the culture, politics and sites of Beijing. Vivie had no complaints about walking up the wall with us even though she does this every two days or so and it was very hot.

I would definitely recommend Vivie to anyone who wants to see Beijing.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. And it was so nice to meet you and your parents in Beijing.

5 stars leah A. 08 Jul 2014

Vivie provided us with a three day tour of Beijing and it was GREAT! She planned things so well we often missed the busy crowds (even during peak times). Each tour was on our time table - never rushed. She took us to local places to eat. She allowed for extended pitcure taking and even was our photographer for our family pictures. Her English is great, as well as her driving.(I can not say enough about having a tour guide that provides private transportation.) Highly, highly recommend her!

Tour Guide Comment: It was so nice to meet your family in Beijing. I really miss your kids now. Hope I will have chance to meet another one when he comes to Beijing one day.

5 stars Lili Y. 03 Jun 2014

We chanced upon Vivie's service whilst surfing for private ground tour package and decided to try it out. It was a great decision as Vivie was great, being able to communicate in Mandarin to my mother-in-law and the rest of us in English, making sure nobody missed out on the interesting history that Beijing has to offer. She was great with the details in making sure our tour was enjoyable from touring to eating to shopping whilst being flexible and ensuring our comfort at all times.

5 stars Kristyane V. 31 May 2014

I booked Vivie's services to make a Great Wall tour to my friend who was visiting Beijing. She was on time with a comfortable and luxurious car when she picked him up at the hotel. And she was so kind to invite him to taste some typical chinese breakfast in a local restaurant and he loved it. Then he told me that Vivie has many tricks and great advices on how to enjoy the tour: negociate price in shopping, taking pictures. He was totally impressed by her knowledge and her warmth. BIG PLUS!

We engaged Vivie as our tour guide for 3 days on 2nd to 4th Apr in Beijing. It was the first time that we hired tour guide via online and surprisingly the experience was fantastic.

Vivie is very knowledgeable and helpful. She is always ever ready to fulfill our last minute requests which we were very grateful to her.

The touring experience with Vivie has increased our trust in hiring local guide in China.

Highly recommend Vivie to any visitors who wants to have a fabulous tour in Beijing

5 stars Andrew T. 20 Mar 2014

Travelling to Beijing and searching for a private guide? Stop looking now as you have found what you are looking for with Vivie! We booked a 3 day tour from 20 to 22 March 2014. She was always on time, very witty and knowledgeable and her English was exceptional. The itinerary she created was perfect for our duration, the tour was very well priced and her Buick van was luxury. I admit I was quite sceptical about booking online, but hiring Vivie was like touring Beijing with an old friend.

5 stars Wm K. 10 Mar 2014

Vivie was delightful! She picked us up on time and the cruise terminal and provided us with a full day of touring in and around Beijing before dropping us off at our hotel. She was honest and frank in answering the questions we asked about the sites, culture, current life -- you name it. She was knowledgeable, tailored the day to our wishes. We had a great time and would not hesitate to use her if we visit Beijing again. Thanks, Vivie!

5 stars Jeremy B. 09 Mar 2014

OUTSTANDING! Vivie is a great guide with outstanding service. She met us at the cruise terminal and we had a very enjoyable ride into Beijing in her new luxury vehicle (book the van it is so comfortable) and even provides a wifi hotspot free of charge whilst we were driving. With the limited time we had she took us around the sites including the great wall and we really enjoyed her explanations and direction. We would book her again without question. Thanks Vivie.

5 stars Valentin C. 16 Feb 2014

Vivie was a great guide for us. It was the first time we visited Beijing and we got great insights from her. Definetely recommended!

Pan was extremely professional and so much fun. Highly recommended.

5 stars Shelby J. 25 Nov 2013

My three friends and I from Houston hired Vivie as our tour guide on Monday, November 25, 2013. She picked us up from our hotel in her brand new, very comfortable Buick GL8 minivan and drove us safely and efficiently to the Great Wall at Mutianyu, to lunch at a small village restaurant, and to the sunken Ming Tomb; finally she dropped us off at the Silk Market (per our request) where she bid us adieu. Vivie's English is good; she is knowledgeable about the locations, and easy-going.

5 stars chang W. 22 Oct 2013

Vivie was our tour guide in October for 5 days in Beijing. We found her very likeable and knowledgeable. We're a family of 4 and she took interest in us. It was a very enjoyable trip and we feel very lucky to know Vivie. We'll definitely recommending her to our friends. Thanks Vivie,

Vivie was very good as a tour guide, and I recommended her to a colleague who visited Beiing after I did.

Informative, friendly and didnt try to rush you around.

5 stars Ronald K. 17 Aug 2013

Your search for a Beijing tour guide is over - Vivie Pan is the best! If you could interview one billion Chinese citizens to be your tour guide, I am convinced that you would hire her!

5 stars Christine L. 06 Aug 2013

Vivie was an excellent tour guide. She's very knowledgable in the sites we visited and created a great itinerary. She even made suggestions that would make our day less tiring and less expensive (bus or subway options instead of a taxi). She is friendly, easy going and a joy to be around. She always went above and beyond by explaining local customs and making sure we had a place to eat. She even helped me find a place to get a haircut. I would definitely recommend her - she's the absolute best!

5 stars Herman M. 15 Jul 2013

We booked Vivie Pan for a 6 day tour (Beijing, Chengde). The contact by email was excellent from the beginning as is her professional and social English. Her knowledge of subjects is really immense. Vivie is a very social person. She is nice to chat with and have a laugh. She also takes well care of you (eg food, checking bills and discounts, raincoats). We were happy to enjoy her new Buick van which easily fits 6 people. A great guide, eventually a friend, maybe the best in Beijing.

5 stars Jourdan W. 06 Jul 2013

Vivie was a wonderful Tour Guide and I would recommend her to anyone! We told her some of the things that we wanted to see in Beijing and she gave us some very good advice on what we could see in the short amount of time that we were going to be in the city. She was able to book us tickets to both the Kung Fu show and the Peking Opera. She is very knowledgeable, kind and helpful! I will definitely be contacting her if we are in Beijing again!

5 stars Pedro D. A. 01 May 2013

I can not speak more highly of Vivie Pan. She is such a nice, genuine and interesting person with excellent English language skills. As a curator from Sydney I needed to travel to the northern outskirts of Beijing for a studio visit with an artist friend of mine. Vivie knew the best route to take by car and we arrived in half the expected time. She was very courteous and exceedingly helpful in facilitating conversations with a number of artists. Vivie even cut short her holiday to fit my plans!

5 stars sean M. 24 Mar 2013

I feel really lucky to have found such an excellent guide. Vivie has an in depth knowledge of Beijing; It’s historical sites, cultural areas, shopping streets and the best places to eat.. and is really friendly too. I love authentic Chinese cuisine and Vivie knows where the best restaurants and street food is to be found. As well as a brilliant tour of Beijing's highlights, Vivie even helped arrange my rail travel to Shanghai and haggled a great deal on a sim card - saved me alot of money! :)

5 stars Nancy E. 20 Mar 2013

Vivie was excellent. Good English, diligent, knowledgeable, timely, nice vehicle, courteous, a good driver, fun, open to any question, and driven by wanting to provide us with a good and memorable experience. We definitely recommend her to be hired by others.

Vivie was a fantastic guide, we had a great couple of days with her. She was was very knowledgable about Beijing history and made it very interesting.

Vivie was really a very genuine person who went out of her way to make sure we had a great experience

In Beijing. We would recommend Vivie as a guide for any visitor to Beijing.

5 stars Marco T. 23 Feb 2013

We were extremely happy that we book a private tour and we were lucky to find Vivie to be our tour guide. She not only showed us all the major sites that we were hoping to see, but she also went out of her way to show us great restaurants, shopping areas, places to see/things to do. She was great and got us started on the right foot. Compared to a tour bus, this private tour prices are very competitive and I have no doubt that you will enjoy this private tour much more. Thank you vivie!

5 stars Marnie C. 05 Feb 2013

Vivie was great! She made sure that we did everything that I wanted to do during my 12 hour layover in Beijing. Not only did she pick me up at the airport at 6:30am, but she brought me a coat to wear since it was winter and I was on my way to Australia. We went to the Great Wall, Summer Palace, and even out for some fantastic peking duck. Anytime I had a question, she knew the answer! The conversation in between locations was great and her self-taught English was great! Thanks so much Vivie!

5 stars Holly C. 31 Dec 2012

Vivie was an excellent tour guide! She took us to the great Wall, Forbidden City, Tian'enmen Square, local lunch, and Night market all in one day! She made everything very easy for us - she took care of getting all our entrance tickets, we skipped the queues, she arranged all transportation - all on 1 day's notice. She had a good balance of telling us information and answering our questions, as well as leaving us some time to explore on our own. You won't regret having Vivie as your guide!

5 stars Lloyd B. 24 Dec 2012

Vivie was an excellent guide . Very knowledgeable and friendly. Our tour was well worth while.

5 stars Alyssa M. 19 Nov 2012

We had an excellent experience with Vivie in Bejing a few weeks ago. She was prompt, reliable, knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly!! She suggested the perfect itinerary for our time in Beijing and was even there waiting for us at the airport at midnight when we arrived. Use Vivie, you won't be disappointed!!!

5 stars Fawn L. 29 Oct 2012

Vivie Pan is a tour guide par excellence who always has a friendly smile and a warm heart. Vivie spent 3 days showing us (4 persons) around Beijing and we covered among others, areas such as the Mutianyu Great Wall, the Ming tombs, The Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and even the Art Area of 798.

She is knowledgeable and is detailed in her explaination of the history and stories of the places we have visited.

She is helpful, initiative and made us comfortable so much so the entire trip felt

5 stars Howard A. H. D. 07 Oct 2012

You can't find a better tour guide in Beijing than Vivie Pan. We spent three wonderful days with her. She speaks excellent English. She is very responsive to all your emails when you book with her. We had a thousand questions and she answered them all. She knows the best places to see, the best places to eat and the best places to shop. She is an excellent driver and knows how to navigate the roads of Beijing. She is a working Mom. Most of all she is a very good person!

5 stars pauline M. 05 Oct 2012

Vivie is a wonderful lady. We communicated lenghtly to organize my trip. Unfortunately, I did not go to China because she informed me that the week I was planning to go was the week of the National Holiday in China and that crowds would make my trip more complicated. I appreciate her honesty and great advices. I will book with Vivie for my future trip.

5 stars Lynda M. 09 Sep 2012

***** tour guide. Great English and really good local knowledge. Thank you Vivie for an amazing 3 days in Beijing. Your help with the agenda & the ease of transportation arrangements were great.

Also you were great with the baby & our little girl, they both loved you and we appreciated that you were so fabulous and made such a great impression with the children. I will recommend you to all of our friends travelling to Beijing.

5 stars Benjamin S. 30 Aug 2012

Vivie, is my first choice guide I found in the list.

And it was the right choice, she was great.

She took us to Jinshanling Great Wall, spend a night there, hiked from tower to tower and we had much time to take photo. She even cooked for us, a simple food but great taste.

She gave us many usefull tips while we were in Beijing such as how to choose a taxi. She also took us to Master Kong's Beef Noodle, the best beef noodle I ever had ;)

Thanks Vivie for your services.

5 stars Natalee F. 10 Aug 2012

What can I say...WOW! Vivie, thamkyou for allowing me to squeeze in so much of Beijing in one day!!! you atre awesome. Your knowledge and efficiency are second to none.I am so glad that i went with a private tour guide and got you. It was great to have the flexability to change the days sightseeing around according to crowds etc at the interested meant that we missed the big crowds and saw so much. Having you to purchase tickets,organise taxis etc, was great. You are #1 guide!!!!!!!!!!

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Natalee. I enjoyed the day with you also. You are very very friendly and easy-going. We do visited so many places on 10th Aug.. But the schedule is not tight at all. Thank you for your trust and let I to arrange the itinerary schedule for you.

5 stars Mike S. 01 Jun 2012

It's no accident that Vivie is Viatour's highest-rated Beijing guide. She met us at the airport, took us to the Great Wall (Mutianyu), on to the Ming tombs and back into Beijing. She drove her own car and drove it well. Next day was aroung Beijing on foot - train, taxis and bus. T Square and the Forbidden City the highlights. Also the full Peking Duck lunch banquet at a very good price. Vivie's English is excellent and her knowledge is amazing - you will not find a better guide. Book ahead.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you , Mike.

5 stars Adam H. 27 Apr 2012

Vivie provided an excellent tour. She knows when to stay with you, and when you want some time to go and explore by yourself. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a good insight into the sights of Beijing.

5 stars Kathy M. 04 Apr 2012

Vivie was a wonderful guide in Beijing. We spent three days touring with her and she did a terrific job of organizing our travels and helping us see the highlights of the area. She was professional, well-informed, spoke English well and made our days fun, informative and memorable. She has her own car and is a careful driver. I would highly recommend her for anyone seeking a tour guide in Beijing.

5 stars Rob B. 23 Mar 2012

We had fantastic experiences - Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City, the Great Wall, etc.

We really felt Vivie tried to give us the ‘real’ Beijing, offering lots of knowledge and insights. She readily accepted our requests. Vivie is a bright, personable young woman, with excellent English, a lovely nature and humour. She was reliable, punctual and very knowledgeable. We felt very confident and happy in her hands. We had a wonderful two days and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for choosing my service. Best wishes for you .

5 stars EVERETT K. 24 Dec 2011

Vivie is the best possible choice for anyone visiting her area of China. You can pay less for other guides and most likely you will see less, learn less and have a less than stellar experience. With Vivie you get far more of a person than you could put a price on and an experience vastly more than you pay for. I would gladly give a reference for Vivie if she asked and look forward to seeing he on my next trip to China.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Everett , you're also very nice just like my friend. Looking toward to meeting you in Beijing again!

5 stars Vanessa M. 29 Nov 2011

Vivie was fantastic! We only had eight hours with her on a layover in Beijing and she made every second count :) She was organized, friendly and knowledgeable. She really listens to your wants and makes as much happen as she can. Our day in Beijing would not have been the same without her. We would hire her again in a second.

Thank you for all the great photos and memories Vivie :)

Sincerely Vanessa and Dylan, NB Canada

5 stars scott S. 19 Nov 2011

Vivie was fantastic! She was very accomodating and flexible with our schedule. I live in China and my wife and youngest child, 17 months, came for a visit. We had Vivie for two full days and saw so many wonderful things. The best thing was how good Vivie was with our son. He was not handling the time change very well and was difficult to manage but Vivie helped out more than we could have ever asked. I highly recommend using Vivie. And please, just call her, she loves the personal touch.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you again, Scott. I love Keldan so much. He is so cute. Hope I will have chance to show your whole family around in Beijing next year.

My boyfriend and I recently toured Beijing and used Vivie as our tour guide. She was amazing!

She took us to see the sights and explained to us the rich history and the prevalent modern thinking. As she told us about her life, we came away with real insight into what it is like to live in China today. She's great!

Our schedule had changed in the days immediately before we flew to China and Vivie had commitments for some of our revised schedule. She coordinated another quality guide and mad

Tour Guide Comment: See you again in Beijing!

5 stars Douglas A. B. 15 Oct 2011

It was my good fortune to book Vivie Pan for 3 October days. A more charming and helpful guide I'd be hard pressed to find. Warm, inviting, effervescent and positive were the emotions Vivie projected through the booking, making my first 3 days in China a delight.

Easily this skilled aide helped establish the basics I needed for business.

As a perfect hostess Mrs. Pan welcomed a last minute addition and escorted the pair of us to notable sites.

This guide is one of China's treasures.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for the nice review. I will try my best to be the best tour guide in Beijing.

Vivie is a great guide and my wife, our two daughters aged 10 and 8 years old and I had a wonderful time in Beijing in August 2011 thanks to her. Upon our arrival, she first confirmed by email our meting the following day which was quite reassuring after arranging the trip a few months earlier. On the first day and based on the weather forecast, she suggested to change the program: with also a bit of luck, we managed to visit the great wall on a day with amazing clear blue sky! She is also very

5 stars Des S. 19 Jul 2011

I can not express how good and knowledgeable Vivie is. We hired her and her car for two days, she took us to Mutinya Great Wall, Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City and the old Hutongs. Vivie speaks great English and offers some great ideas, listen to her and take her hints. She took my wife and mates wife shopping to the Pearl Market and they all had a great time. Vivie is a must in such a huge place, she was punctual and very pleasant. Thanks Vivie from your Aussie Friends.

Tour Guide Comment: I'm so happy to be your tour guide in Beijing. Best Wishes for your family and freinds.

5 stars Michael S. 28 May 2011

Vivie is the perfect tour guide in every respect. Reading her reviews, I was confident she would be very good. But she was so much more. Touring Beijing with Vivie was like being shown a foreign city by a good friend/relative. She is so knowledgeable about the history of the sites, culture & Beijing in general. She was genuinely excited about sharing Beijing with us, and made sure we experienced the best of it in the 3 days we had. I recommend her without a single reservation. Love Vivie!

Tour Guide Comment: It's my pleasure to show you and your girl friend around in Beijing. And thanks for the nice photos.

5 stars Philip D. 07 May 2011

Where I start to describe Vivie?

I choose Vivie from Our Explorer at the last minute as my wife and I wanted to take a trip to the Great Wall,etc. I chose correct !!!

Vivie took to my wife and I as a friend, very knowledgeable and knows Beijing very well.

As well as the wall we visited the Olympic site, had Peking Duck lunch and took a trip to a porcelain museum.

Vivie was just awesome. Very easy going and gentle, she made our short one-day visit to Beijing memorable. We got to visit all we wanted in just one day and still enjoyed a wonderful typical Peking Duck for lunch. We also had the luck of enjoying a pleasant afternoon in Mutianyiu Great Wall absolutely empty and quiet, no tourists!! She also explains and tell the history behind the historic places in the Forbidden City very interestingly and wisely. Thanks Vivie, all the best!! Bruno and Juliane.

5 stars George R. 15 Jan 2011

Perfect tour guide and perfect experience.

My wife and I are from the United States both of us are in the 70's. We used Vivie to pick us up and deliver us to the aiport as well as two days of touring in and around Beijing. She has a new car and is a fine driver as well as an accomplished guide. She is kind, honest, thoughtfull and punctual.

I would not hesitate to use her again or in recommending her to others.

4 stars Liz G. 15 May 2012

15 May 2012. Vivie is a pleasant well knowledgeable on Beijing. Very flexible tour guide, who is prepared to provide package that suites your needs, no hidden tours to "Factory compounds" that wastes time - you get to see what you want at own pace, making your holiday good value for money and time. Great to have her participating with us on various excursions. Arranged extra items at no extra expense and at short notice. (Acrobatic evening) when we met her young son as well (full of beans).

Tour Guide Comment: Hi, Liz . My son still thought he will meet you on the beach. Ha ha

2 stars Reena G. 08 Oct 2018

Vivie was an excellent guide. She was knowledgeable, articulate and easy to u derstand. She was very patient with my mother who would tire easily. I would definitely recommend her to anyone visiting Beijing.
