    Dean was awesome awesome as a guide. Very knowledgeable about the area we saw. He made biking through the streets fun and a great cultural experience. We experienced the city in a very different way. Highly recommended!

    The tour voucher said we must confirm the tour by phone or email 24 hours prior. Despite multiple attempts we were unable to contact the local operator by phone. A last ditch effort by email did get a response but too late for us to make the one hour trip across Beijing for the tour. We were not willing to make that trip without confirmation. Not sure why we should have to confirm a tour that was payed for in advance. If a local number is supplied, someone should answer the phone. Very poor service. Very disappointed we missed the tour.

    The private bike tour around Beijing was excellent, even though the temperature was near freezing. The tour guide, Herbert, was very knowledgeable and took me to places I would not have found myself. It was an excellent cultural experience. I would highly recommend the tour!

    Dean was our tour guide. His English was excellent and almost as important he was very personable. I really liked how he was willing to adjust the tour to myself and my daughters interest. We were a little nervous about biking in Beijing at night.....have no fears ....felt very safe! Biking for us personally is by far and away the best way to see a city.

    My son had not ridden a bicycle in years, so we was not comfortable on his bike. Our tour guide, Dan, was very understanding and offered to make the tour a walking event instead. We likely missed a few sites, but Dan was great and was patient in walking with us through the sites all the way to Tienamen Square several miles away. It was great to see sites at night that we would also see in the day time a few days later. Dan was very engaging, information, and spoke great English.

    Lucy the guide was a pleasure to have to show me around. Great way to see some of the highlights in a couple hours in the evening.
