We spent a great afternoon exploring Summer Palace in Beijing! Our guide was prompt and taught us so much about Beijing history and daily life.At the Summer Palace, she provided great information about the history of the palace.She adapted the visit to our preferences and even took some great pictures of us. She went well above and beyond what was required.

Our guide Joyce was so friendly, knowledgeable and made our tour very pleasant. The summer palace is very tranquil and peaceful, beautiful gardens, courtyards and rooms. At the end of the tour we were given A lovely gift of chopsticks in a presentation box... A really nice touch thank you 😊 We really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend.

This private tour was great! Lisa was an excellent tour guide. She picked us up in our hotel lobby on time and had us driven in a private car to the summer palace. The summer palace itself was magnificent and she gave us a lot of information. It was packed with tourists since it was the summer and Lisa allowed us to customize the tour. We were able to take the dragon boat across the water--I highly recommend this tour!
