Traveler Reviews

    My husband and I enjoyed Lisa's company and her knowledge on the sites we saw together. She was very willing to give us extra information and answered all of our questions happily. We enjoyed our 1/2 day tour with her to the Ming Tombs and Sacred Path. This tour was a nice quite way to spend the afternoon with noticeably less people/tourists which meant lots of space to enjoy the environment and we were able to see everything up close. The information was informative and interesting and I would recommend both Lisa and this tour for anyone wanting a personal experience that is slower-paced but still holds significance to the Chinese history. We totally recommend the personal touch of the private tours with a private car, driver and tour guide.
