    I was totally enthralled by both the city and the experience provided by Catherine Lu Tours. My guide, Jenny, couldn't have been more personable, knowledgeable, or caring, we had a great day walking Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and Jingshan Park...in 95 degree heat! She kept encouraging me, but was always amenable to taking a break, so I was able to get through it all easily. My driver was totally respectful and skillful--we were quite a team. The restaurant she chose was magnificent! Jenny also arranged for me to see a wonderful Kung Fu show that hadn't been on the agenda but that she knew I'd enjoy, and easily changed the schedule when I got too tired. I only had one sightseeing day to spend, but when I come back and have more time on my hands, I will definitely contact Jenny and Catherine Lu Tours.

    Sophie is a great tour guide. Our son was a little disappointed that the wait for Hutong ride was 2 hours so Sophie improvised with a tour of the bell tower. Sophie helped us order a delicious lunch. She also explained the sites and took of our family. We really appreciated that! We booked three tours with Catherine Lu and Sophie was our guide for all 3 tours. She is awesome! Our kids still talk about her.

    This is my second trip to Beijing using Catherine Lu tours and my tour guide, Stephen. Stephen is knowledgeable in Chinese history and was able to provide us with good insight on our places of visit. He also has a good command of English and conversing with him was a breeze. He also ensured that the trip progressed smoothly and overall it was a pleasant and enjoyable experience .

    We really happy and satisfied with the tour experience. Amanda, our tour guide is very kind, she is taking our pictures along the way and very resourceful by showing us place to rent our chinese cotume just exactly like we want. Same goes with the driver, he is so polite and kind. So far best experience with Catherine Lu tours. Very professional and responsive.

    Our group of nine adults and teens had a fantastic day touring Beijing with Sonia. Booking with Jenna and Catherine was so easy—they replied promptly and were very customer oriented and helpful. Sonia is funny and knowledgeable. We all loved her. We would definitely recommend Catherine Lu tours and our guide Sonia.

    This is the best tour experience we have ever had. John, our tour guide had perfect english, was very friendly, knowledgeable and responsive to the needs of my two kids (age 8 and 11) who asked some unusual questions! He ensured that the day ran at our pace (it was a private tour) and pointed out lots of interesting things that were not in the guide books. The day ran very smoothly because of the good coordination with the driver (air conditioned vehicle was great!) including a really nice lunch at a nice restaurant suitable for kids. My kids loved the rickshaw tour. I am very happy that Catherine Lu tours was recommend to me and highly recommend John and Catherine Lu tours to others. Thanks John!

    Our Catherine Lu tour guide, Jenny, and her driver picked us up at our hotel in a very comfortable van and we proceeded to visit the major city sights, Tienanmen Square, the Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven, and the Hutong, which we walked, rather than taking the rickshaw. Jenny had arranged for a good local lunch, which turned out to be one of the best meals we had in China. Jenny was informative and flexible about our desire to spend more time at some places, less at others. Beijing is a fascinating city, and the Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven were extraordinary sites. At the end of the day, Jenny and her driver took us back to our hotel and gave us suggestions for what to do on our own the next day.

    We had another long layover in Beijing this year, so I contacted Catherine Lu Tours to see what options would be available. We booked our Great Wall tour with her last year and totally enjoyed ourselves, so I knew I could trust that she would deliver us a great tour. Eran, our tour guide, met us at the airport and then proceeded to take us to Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City. He was very informative, with great English, and he found ways to make the tour very engaging and interesting. He answered all of our questions and gave us lots of fun facts without overloading us with information. We then went to the Temple of Heaven, and very much enjoyed the experience. If you have a long layover or, even better, multiple days in Beijing, I highly recommend that you book your tour through Catherine Lu Tours. I am sometimes a picky traveler, but they put my mind at ease. They are very responsive, which is very important to me. Every time I emailed them, I received a response quickly and a response which addressed my inquiry to my satisfaction. You can not go wrong booking a tour with this very reputable company!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Beijing with Amanda in April. Amanda was flexible and responsive to our needs, even though we had to push the first day pick up time back due to our late flight coming in the night before. She adjusted her pace to our group, with my parents who are older and needed some patience :) Amanda's language proficiency was very high on the tour information and high on almost all other social conversations. She was helpful in accommodating our evening when we were meeting a friend after the tour on the same day and even helped us make a reservation for Peking duck for the following evening. Amanda was great at sharing information and history without being too overwhelming. Driver and Transportation: Very good, comfortable, friendly driver, water provided. They did great coordinating pick up at all the locations. Restaurants we stopped at on tour: Excellent for my parents' first visit to China, also helped make a reservation for Peking duck the night after the tour. From a rating of one to five, (five being excellent), what’s your rating of our guide? 5 THANKS FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE IN BEIJING! WE WILL USE CATHERINE LU AGAIN WITH OTHER VISITORS.

    We had a great first day tour in China~Jeremy recited history with stories and was able to keep our attention with periodic jokes. It was freezing and he was mindful and accommodating of our need to keep warm. He dropped us off at 978 art district which was a good end to the day.
