Reviews of Sophia's and Beijingholiday’s Service

Dean Wudy was professional and an excellent tour guide! He was very helpful when we needed help with wheel chair issues. He helped us a lot through the entire trip, especially at the Great Wall. It is knowledge of Beijing history was great. We would recommend him and the driver Shed to anyone that comes to Beijing. We would like to have Dean and Shed for the next time we come to Beijing. This was a great trip. We love China.

"Wonderful Yunnan Experience with You"

Discussing with my husband and son, I insisted on seeing Yunnan with various Chinese society and culture instead of other crowed cities like Beijing and Xian. Last December, we reserved 8 Days Yunnan Tour through Beijing Holiday. We found a overwhelmingly beautiful province with both small and traditional farming, chic Chinese minority, local Tibetan culture, spectacular local food, great insights in local Chinese history. You made it possible.

 

Our tour guide, Mr. Wang, is knowledgeable and handles all the journey details faultlessly. He took us to visit Kunming Stone Forest, Dali ancient town, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Tiger Leaping Gorge in 8 days tour, and other places off the beaten track we would never have known to explore. We got a real sense of what the areas of Yunnan we explored were actually like, rather than a typical tourist experience. We are very satisfied for the local cuisines and restaurants that Mr. Wang chosen for us. Every day, we ate the most delicious and unusual food we have ever had. But none of us knew English names of the food. Wonderful, busy local cultural street markets and ancient temples are also the interesting places we visited. We did two outdoor hiking activities in the journey, which particularly pleased our youthful son. One is Jada Dragon Snow Mountain which is the holy mountain for the local Naxi people, and the other is to hike in the Tiger Leaping Gorge. These two places are the must-gos when travelling in Yunnan. The views are unbelievable and impressive. You will have a wonderful sense of achievement after reaching the top point.

 

Yunnan is the perfect place to go, and look for something new and less crowded by tourists. The organization of our tour was excellent and the guide is great. We had a wonderful journey in Yunnan, and we will highly recommend you and your guide to our friends. Hope you keep it getting better!

"Best Ever Trip to Beijing Xian Shanghai"

Hi Sophia,

We have just returned from China and tour with your company.

I was very satisfied with the way our trip was handled. From our first contact you looked after us well. You tailored our trip to meet our requirements.

Our tour was great. To be met at the airport and looked after was a great comfort in an unfamiliar country. Our first guide, Pan, was so helpful and knowledgeable. He often went out of his way to ensure that we were taken care of. He is very professional and we enjoyed his company. The highlight for me in Beijing was visiting the Great Wall and walking a fair length of it.

We then took the fast train to Xian where we saw the warriors (another highlight). Our guide and driver there were very pleasant and looked after us as well.

Our final stop was Shanghai - I loved this city with it's mix of old and new architecture. Our guide there had a great sense of humour and looked after us.

We had opted for the 5 star hotels which we thought were worth the extra - all the hotels were excellent.

I would happily recommend Beijing Holiday to any of my friends planning to visit China.

The only criticism we have of our trip is that we were booked on a late train to Xian which did a lot of stops adding 2 hours to the trip. Had we been booked on the one that left about an hour earlier we would have had a shorter trip.

I am happy for you to use any of my comments or if you have customers that would like to talk to me about my trip. Also feel free to use my photos.

Thanks,

Bob Sobey OAM

"Professional Organization of our Holiday in Beijing and Xian"

Dear Sophia,
We returned very late last night after a long holiday. Please see our attached our feedback - it is not on your form, but I kept it as a summary through the holiday, to make sure it covered everything. You can be pleased with it, the holiday was very satisfactory for us, and we appreciate the professional organisation which enabled us to experience far more than we might have if we had been trying to do the same things ourselves.


Summary: We were extremely satisfied with the general arrangements and thank you for your work in putting together such a successful visit on our behalf.


Tour Guide

In Beijing: Mr Xie, understood our interests and the way we prefer to approach our travels. He was extremely patient with our interests in photography, allowing time. Lunches were very different each day, very enjoyable, and Mr Xie took time to ensure we had varied and interesting eating experiences. Taking the train to Xi’an, he made sure we knew the system, ensured we were in it properly, and our train was trouble free.


Mr Ma, our driver, was patient and excellent, despite some long days for him. Despite the Beijing traffic, we felt secure and comfortable, and we were pleased to see him again when we returned to Beijing. The tour took us to aspects we would never have seen or considered, and we are extremely grateful to you for the arrangements made. At no time did we feel pressured to end the day.


In Xian: Susan and Mr Li transferred us smoothly to the hotel and ensured we had time for breakfast and a shower before starting the tour. Again there were no problems, and as in Beijing, they were a pleasure to be with. Susan was very concerned about our transfer to the train for our return to Beijing, and followed up with phone calls to ensure we had no problems.


Both Mr Xie and Susan were knowledgeable, with good English, and could answer our questions about the visits.


Finally, being met on our return to Beijing, plus our transfer the next day to the airport, was smooth with no problems.


Tour Details

Day 1 – excellent. The Silk factory was exactly the type of extra that we were looking for, over and above the more standard tours. Mr Xie had tickets for the performance we had requested at the NCPA, and we were dropped off as arranged. The performance was superb, and we really enjoyed it.


Day 2 – your recommendation to change to Mutianyu could not have been better. We had a superb visit in perfect conditions – a highlight. The Jade carving was good, and we were offered an additional visit to a Cloisonnier factory, which was even better, and showed Mr Xie’s understanding of our interests.


Day 3 – After an outstanding evening of theatre (Ballet, opera, acrobatics, classical and folk music provided by the Ministry of Culture) during our 2 day conference at the National Millenium Monument, and the evening at the NCPA, We are asked to substitute the Tea ceremony, which was very interesting, and fitted in with our interests better, instead of the Laoshe Tea House and their show. While we purchased goods at the silk, jade and cloisonnier works, we never felt under any pressure to buy. They were relaxed and enjoyable, and staff were interested in meeting our wishes.


Day 4 - The visit to Chundixia was really enjoyable – a beautiful day, spectacular scenery, beautiful autumn colours. We were able to stop for photographs in the mountains. Lunch in a family home was excellent – and more interesting than in the Hutong, which was a bit commercialised. We suspect in a few years, the village will be as commercial, but Mr Xie had particularly selected a traditional home, with just us as guests.


Day 5 & Day 6 - Xi’an – We saw everything we expected to see, plus more. Susan was helpful in bargaining in the Muslim quarter – this last, in particular, was an astonishing experience. The Warrior Army was superb, the Shanxi museum far more interesting than we expected. Throughout the two days, Susan did well to keep track of us in the crowds in restricted areas of poor lighting.


In conclusion, we very much enjoyed our visit, which we were able to add on to a conference visit (Mr Xie spent his first 10 minutes with us, taking photographs of me with Chinese photographers attending the conference, and translating for them, while we loaded our luggage into the car!). We really did get the most from our visit, and appreciated the professionalism with which it was organised. We would be very happy to recommend you to friends, or speak to prospective clients who might want a reference.


(I will be happy to send some photos from our tour, but it will be a little while before I have these downloaded and organised. It may be 2 or 3 weeks).


Thankyou,


Barbara and Roy Robertson

"Beijing - Hangzhou - Shanghai"

Dear Sophia,

I am very happy to say that you had made excellent Guide arrangement, Driver, Car, and reasonable Hotel in Beijing. However after our arrival at Shanghai Stn, we were received by a Guide named Mr. Snow. We had first told him that we had no lunch, thus we prefer to go to a KFC joint ASAP at our cost. He had replied that KFC will be near our Hotel only, which is very far. Further the Pearl City will close early. Thus we need to go to Pearl City first as per program. But we had found out that it closes only at 9-00 PM only. Then we had found one Indian Restaurant at the Pearl City itself. Therefore after a short Pearl City look, we went to the Ind Res for Dinner at 5-40 PM. There we had ordered Dinner for three, including for Mr. Snow. We had ordered fast food items only, since Snow was repeating that he is getting late, it was not in schedule. He had told us that the tour pkg has allotted for our pick up at Railway stn at 5-15 PM and then drop at Hotel at 6-15 PM which includes travel time of 50 minutes. We just took about 20 minutes for our dinner. However in this 20 minutes period he had gone twice to the Restaurant kitchen to push them for quick serving to us.


From the next day onwards at Shanghai/ Hangzhou /Shanghai, fortunately we had got new Guides Mr. Johnny & Miss Simona. Both of them were excellent in behaviors and Services. We are thankful to them like your Mr. Pan in Beijing.


I am now enclosing some photographs with our Guides whom we liked very much.

"Excellent Service and Knowledgeable Tour Guide"

Last week, I spent 4 days in Beijing and travelled the popular attractions including Forbidden City, Tiananmen, Temple of Heaven, Mutianyu Great Wall, Old Hutong, Summer Palace. Travel consultant Sophia had arranged hotels, tour guide, private car. My tour guide was friendly, prompt and happy to take photos for me as much as I wanted. As a lone female, I felt very safe, and learnt a lot of interesting stuff about Beijing and the sites I visited. Thank you very much to all members of Beijing Holiday.

Lynn B, 2014-09-18

"Excellent one-day Tour in Beijing"

On Aug. 6th, I had one day available for site seeing in Beijing when on my business trip. The travel advisor, Sophia, recommended me to tour the Forbidden City and the Mutianyu Great Wall in a day. Then I booked the tour itinerary. The early morning of the second day, a driver and a tour guide Tommy came to my hotel for picking me up. Tommy is very knowledgeable about Chinese history and filled me in on the history of the Forbidden City, stories of the Dragon Ladies, the building story of the Great Wal, and battles history prior to its construction.

It was a fabulous trip complete with an excellent lunch at an out door restaurant where you could select your own fressh fish! Tommy is extremely attentive to my needs and interests. He is a great guide. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would highly recommend Beijing Tours for touring needs. It is a great company.

“10 Days in Tibet - Overland from Nepal to Tibet”

We, 5 of us, had a tour of a lifetime in Tibet in June, 2014. We did an overland tour from Nepal - EBC - Shigatse -Gyantse -Lhasa with Beijing Holiday tours. We had engaged with Sophia 3 months ahead before our tour and she has responded to all our requests in a timely manner. One of the highlights of the tour is out tour guide - Jampa. She is the BEST guide that we ever had. She is VERY passionate and knowledgeable on Tibetan Buddhism, the local culture and also the history of the country. We are overwhelmed and truly attracted to Tibet because of Jampa . We definitely would like to be back again to visit different areas in Tibet and we will go for Jampa . We learned a lot from her and we really appreciated it. Aside that, we also has a good driver too - he is skillful on the road. We thanked both of them for "saving" us when we had some high altitude challenges at EBC.


Beijing Holiday tours is one of the best choice that anyone should consider engaging in Tibet.

Last but not least, we would like to say thank you for Sophia, Jampa and our sifu driver for taking care of us during the trip.

"An amazing tour experience"

Given the language challenges in China, we looked at several options and eventually settled on Beijing Holiday. Finnaly, we use the services in Beijing, Shanghai and Longji, Guilin. All I can say is that I was blown away by the professionalism and service of each individual guide within each city. Our private guide in Beijing was extremely knowledgeable and really gave us an amazing tour of the city. In Shanghai, our guide is very friendly to help us get our IPad left in our hotel. The third guide also went far and above what was expected. She stayed with us until the end of each day and we could tell that she really had a passion for sharing the Chinese culture with us.

Quiet honestly, we were glad what we did. This experience was directly related to the exceptional service provided by Beijing Holiday. I highly recommend this group!

“Great Tour in Beijing, Xian and Shanghai”

We ( a family of five ) had a 8 days great trip to Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai in March 2014. The purpose of this trip was to see our eldest daughter who was studying in Beijing and take my children to travel the classic cities in China. I booked our flight to China and our travel advisor Sophia’s group organized the rest. Our guide and driver met us at Beijing airport and the second day to start our trip in Beijing, then Xian, and Shanghai.

During the period of our trip, the air was clear and neat in these three cities. We were very happy to have this tour with Beijing Holiday. I will recommend Beijing Holiday tours, because their guides are knowledgeable, pleasant and speak English very wall, and the itinerary is changeable. Thank you again to all of you.

"Best Local Tour Company in Beijing - We Recommend"

Our 4 days and 3 nights Classic Beijing Tour with Beijing Holiday ended yesterday. It was the absolute highlights of our China Tour. Our personal travel advisor, Sophia, helped us create the most amazing itinerary and she always responded to my emails immediately and no question was too late. Before we started, she looked after all the details, such as flight pick-up transfering, hotels booking, so that everything ran as smooth as silk.

We were fortunate enough to have Lang as our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable about all the sites that we visited as well as the history of the country. Since all our lunches were included Lang did all the ordering of the various dishes which allowed us to taste a variety of differet food in Beijng. He essorted us to visit Forbidden City, enjoy the fantastic Acrobatic Show, and visit the Mutianyu Great Wall which was amazing and Grand. We would highly recommend Beijing Holiday as the best local tour company for the ultimate personal service.

Thank you to Lang, sophia, and all members of Beijing Holiday.

10 Days Golden Triangle and Guilin

We have the wonderful trip to China we took in January with Beijing Holiday. Everything went just as they promised it would. We felt like VIP's with our private tour guides and drivers. Our guides took care of all tickets, lines, etc. They were professional and knowledgeable about their cities. We learned so much about Chinese history and culture.

We arrived at Shanghai firstly.We went the beautiful Yu Gardan, in the evening, enjoyed the breathtaking Acrobatic Show. The third day we took a flight to Guilin and met our guide who is Lily, a marvelous woman. She knew all the history and interesting information about Guilin and Yangshuo. She was very professional and made sure we had a great experience. The next destination was Xian. Xian is worthy of his reputation: one of the four famous ancient capitals of the world. No visit Xian, you will not really China's profound history and rich culture. Beijing is the Capital of China now. It was one of China's historical ancient cities. We drave to the Mutianyu section of Great Wall, which was really a man-made wonder. We also visited the Forbidden city, Temple of Heaven, Ming Tombs and had the flavorful Peking Roast Duck Dinner. This is really a great trip in China.

Finally, We have to thanks to our tour advisors, Sophia. She replied to emails promptly and professionally designed tour itineraries for us. Thank you to all employees in Beijing Holiday again.

Lowell, 2014-01-16

Hi Sophia,

Thank you for arranging everything. The tour of the Great Wall was spectacular. You and the Master (driver) were so helpful and knowledgeable. They arrived right on the dot, stayed longer than they would have because my daughter wanted to see the Olympic village (it was so misty we had to park and walk), and did not mind if we strayed from the set path – I wanted to climb from the base of the Great Wall, the others took the tram.

I really appreciate your help and wonderful attentiveness to our questions and needs. Please thank them for making the trip such an enjoyable one.

“Tiananmen and Forbidden City Beijing“

First I want to say "Thank You very much" to my travel advisor Sophia, offering help to me. Trip to Tiananmen was very entertaining as it is difficult to believe that Chairman Mao would want to keep all this historical past of Chinas old emperors with all their connections to lots of concubines and the way they lived in the past.Our guide was very knowledgable and made it a good experience.

David R, 2013-11-19

Hello Sophia,

Thank you for organizing china tour for us. We have thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour. All the guides & drivers have provided an excellent service. Please, could you thank them all once again on behalf of us.

Thank you very much for everything & I will recommend your tour company to my relatives and friends.

Hi Sophia,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for organizing our recent trip to China.

We had a great time and everything ran smoothly. (Except the return trip to Malaysia as the flight was diverted to Hong Kong due to a passenger falling ill on the plane).

Everything you arranged worked well and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with you.

Thanks again.

“I have nothing but positive reviews on Sophia (beijingholiday.com)”

We stayed at the The Imperial Mansion, Beijing - Marriott Executive Apartments

Sophia, the travel agent I contacted via email. All booking were done even before the payment was made. The next morning we were (wife and kid) picked up by our local guide “Dong” who was very fluent in English and knew who matter well ….Very professional I must say. We chose the one day tour to the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Jade Factory and Forbidden City. Thanks to Sophia (beijingholiday.com) we had a great day.

Will recommend all our friends/visitors visiting Beijing to use your services as we felt these were true value for money. Since getting back we have recommended your services to two friends and will continue to do so.

I have nothing but positive reviews!

Good morning Sophia,

We arrived home safely after being diverted away from Hong Kong due to typhoon. Thanks for organising a wonderful trip.

Your organisation and planning was excellent and everything went to plan, ie guides on time, no trouble with trains or flights. All the guides were excellent, each having their own personality and strengths. I must say Sophia and driver in Xian we had good time with. The trip itself gave us an overview of China and we saw what we came to see. We were not rushed in any way and there was plenty of time to relax (if you can in China). So all in all thank you.

Once again thank you Sophia. I realize you must be extremely busy now in peak season. If you like you can refer any prospective client to me at my email address and I will say good things about you and Beijing Holiday.

Kevin Quirk, 2013-06-29

Hi Sophia,

Just an brief email to say thanks to you and all the staff, especially our driver and Sophia for making our visit such a wonderful experience.

I have already recommended you to someone who inquired how we enjoyed our trip.

Best wishes and many thanks,

Kieran Devlin, 2013-06-20

Hi Sophia,

We had a good trip of China last month. The tour seems to be well organized. A feedback summary below:

Itinerary: was good. We appreciated the flexibility of the tour guides to adjust the tour.

Tour guides: Generally they were all good. Grace in Xi'an was particularly good. We seem to have stressed her at the departure time with confusion with the passport details. We have dual nationality. It was our mistake to give you scans of Pakistani passports when we were traveling on Australian passports. In the end all went well.

Drivers: were also good and helpful.

Hotels: were generally good. Beijing Prime hotel, although not situated in the middle of elegant area, provided good service with courteous staff. Shanghai's hotel was situated in a good location on Nanging road.

We have narrated our travel stories to our friends here in Australia and there has been quite an excitement. If any of them wish to visit China, we would be happy to recommend your services.

Regards

One Day in Beijing Tour

I chose the one day tour to the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Jade Factory and Forbidden City. I have nothing but positive reviews!

Sophia, the travel agent I was in contact with, organized this over email and offered to book my train tickets for my trip to Zhengzhou from Beijing too, as well as book a good, but reasonably priced, hotel in Beijing for a few nights. She organized a private car and tour guide to take me around to each of the listed sites, and a lovely traditional Chinese lunch in the afternoon.

I'm a college student from Harvard and I was travelling on my own; I would definitely recommend Beijing Holiday Tours- it's very affordable, safe, convenient and, overall, amazing.

Dear Sophia,

I just wanted to say "Thank you" for setting up such great tours in Beijing and Shanghai. Ryan in Shanghai was great, excellent English and great knowledge about the city. Philipp the guide in Beijing was very friendly, a bit quiet for my personal taste, but also very knowledgable. I can defiantly recommend your services.

Marco Foelske and Family

We had such fantastic times in your country and will be great Ambassadors. We took many pictures and we wouldn't mind returning for another time in the future.

Once again - Thank you!! :-)))

Best regards,

Good morning Sophia,

This mail is to thank you very much for organising everything for our visits to Shanghai and Beijing so professionally. We saw everything we wanted to see, the hotels were good and the restaurants your guides took us to were also good. We are most pleased with the services provided by Beijing holiday.com, and have given you a favourable review on Tripadvisor.

With many thanks and kind regards.

Dear Sophia,

I had a wonderful, very enjoyable time. Sophia is a special person and excellent tour guide. John the driver, was perfect. We covered lots of ground and saw many wonderful sights and places.

I am so appreciative that you were able to arrange everything on such short notice. Super service. I have told others of your company and your service.

Dear Sophia,

We have just returned from our trip to China. Everything was wonderful! Thank you for making such good arrangements. I want to commend Mrs Lee and Sophia, in Xian for their extra help when Enrico was feeling ill. He recovered quickly and was able to continue our tours with no lost time. Also a thank you to Mike in Beijing for getting us to a section of the Great Wall where Enrico's wheelchair could be pushed for a little way. We have a nice photo of that experience.

The cruise on the President Prime ship was one of the highlights of our tour. Our room location was excellent and the elevator was very helpful in allowing Enrico to get around easily.

Again thank you for your assistance.

“Excellent China Adventure”

We booked a private 15 day China tour for 2 which included visits to Shanghai, Chengdu, Xi’an, Beijing and a cruise on the Yangtze River. Planning for the tour was facilitated by easily communicating with our representative in Beijing, who provided us with information on itineraries and acquiring our visas. As one of us uses a wheelchair, our representative took extra steps to minimise accessibility issues. From our arrival in Shanghai, we were met and escorted by knowledgeable and courteous guides and drivers and had nice vehicles. Being just the two of us, we were able to pace the tour at our own speed, spending more time in locations that interested us.

We were very well treated by Beijing Holiday Tours and highly recommend them to anyone planning a holiday in China.

Enrico, 2012-11-05

Thank you Sophia,

Everything went well. Your service was very good and efficient.

We had a good time in Beijing.

Kind Regards,

The trip was fantastic and Beijing Holiday arranged everthing just beautifully. Each day was planned perfectly. Thank you, Jenny!

The tour guide (Annie) was awesome. She had a great personality, well spoken, and knowlegebable about all of the sights. Our entire group connected with Annie and found her very enjoyable to be with.

The Peking Duck was fantastic. I guess it was the sauce that made it extra delicious. All other meals were also just as good. Great Job!

The van was perfect. The driver was great. We felt very safe and confident with his driving. He was pleasant and very professional.

Accomondations were great too. Location is convenient for a very relaxing stay in the Beijing area.

Beijing Holiday service was no worry, no hassles, and no surprises. Overall we absolutly had a wonderful time. We appreciate the time you spent with us in planning our visit. Job well done!

Guilin never ceases to amaze!

I really enjoyed my Beijing Guilin Shanghai trip. Send my regards to all the tour guide who helped me, and I was very happy everything was arranged.

The most enchanting sights in China are said to be Shanghai at night, Beijing in autumn, Chongqing in fog and Guilin in the rain. I headed to Guilin, which means forest of sweet osmanthus, two weeks ago and was awed by the rain and mist-shrouded peaks in this world-famous site in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The flight from Shanghai takes around two and a half hours and when arriving I immediately smelled the sweet osmanthus trees that grow everywhere in the city. The red lanterns from the Chinese Lunar New Year are still hanging in the trees. The famous boat cruise on the winding Lijiang River passes the many karst mountains and peaks, some with bizarre shapes that resemble an elephant sipping water, a walking camel and an old man lost in thought.

The rain and fog above the river lend an air of mystery. When the river takes a big turn at Xingping Old Town, I saw the familiar and heart-stopping beauty that is engraved on the 20-yuan Chinese bank notes. Fishermen float by on bamboo rafts with their "leashed" cormorants that dive for fish. Every morning they sell fish, shrimp and crabs to cruise boats.

In addition to natural scenery, the slow-paced city is rich in history and culture. The Sun and Moon pagodas on Banyan Lake reflect a balance of yin and yang, two fundamentals of Chinese philosophy.

We would like to thank everyone at BeijingHoliday for the vacation of a lifetime! Every aspect of our vacation exceeded our expectations by 100%. We had a wonderful time on our Great Wall Hiking, our honeymoon in Shanghai were the highlight of our trip. We would have never had such an enjoyable trip. We really appreciate everything that you did to make sure we were well taken care of!

Theresa Victoria, 2011-01-12

I am not going to forget the trip Beijingholiday.com organized for us. It was wonderful and perfect 3 days trip to the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Hutong, Temple of Heaven, and Tiananmen Square etc. Thanks to Amanda and Sophie they were outstanding and extremely hospitable. We will recommend to everyone coming to Beijing from USA.

Blida & Rita , 2010-09-16

I am glad to send a report back to you about our lovely visit in Beijing and our cute tour guide, Mr. Zhao. We could not be more pleased. Besides guiding us expertly through your beautiful city, he also keeps us company delightfully. We were also very satisfied with our stay at the Howard Johnson Hotel, and would recommend it readily. Also, I must thank you again for your patience of replying our enquiries. You are very professional.

Mr.Jakob Ardian Knauf, 2009-12-07

FANTASTIC! I have been to China before but this was the best. We loved the Great wall, Jingshan Park and the Pearl market. The food here was great, added the cozy hotel. Thank you for all of your hard work making this China tour happen. Finding a tour that will make 12 people happy is a challenge but we all had a great time. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending your company to all of our friends in our country.

Mr. Dr. Bernd Gross & Mrs. Ines Grucndel, 2009-11-18

What a pleasant trip! I enjoyed myself very much during the three-day tour in Beijing. Our guide, a beautiful and warm-hearted girl took me and my husband to many scenic spots of Beijing, such as the temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, the forbidden city and Badaling Great Wall etc., we also took a lot of beautiful pictures of the exterior of the Water Cube, the Bird`s Nest and the grand theater (the "Egg"). My favorite is the Hutong Tour by rickshaw; that`s very funny. All in all, I like Beijing. And I am very thankful to your superior service, you all well done. You will be the best our never had.

Petra-Sabine Gorbauch, 2009-11-16

I traveled to this famous city-Beijing for the first time. With your excellent service, I and my wife have spent a pretty happy week here. I personally thank my tour guide--Mr. Yang. I suggest anyone that in need to visit Beijing or remaining China, the first recommendation would be Beijingholiday.

Mr. Kneissle Jochen, 2009-11-14

"We felt like royalty in a city built for bikes, the People's transport" "In the afternoon we enjoyed the amazing weather (it had rained mysteriously heavily the entire day and night before) by renting bikes and rolling with ease through ancient hutongs (the famous 'narrow alley' neighborhoods in Beijing) and around landmark towers, past sparkling lakes and bustling lakefront markets. We cruised through crowded backstreets and on the wide open bike lanes of Beijing's main streets. We rode by the moats of the Forbidden City and under the overhanging branches of the surrounding tree lined streets...
