    My husband and I are road warriors. We travel hard and fast and ensure that our small time in any given spot is filled up with amazement. Terry provided this and some! If someone were to ask me what to see in China, my response would be everything and only Terry can provide that. Kept the pace good, saw everything, knew all the perfect spots to take photos away from the crowds and great food was enjoyed by all. I cannot wait to go back to China to see the many wonders and splendors this great country has to offer and we will only travel with Terry, the superstar of tour guides!

    My wife and I have been to Beijing many times and done most of the sites in the area but this time, some of my family was accompanying us and it was their first visit to Beijing. Michael arranged to have one of his staff meet us at the airport. If you've ever been to Beijing, you know how stressful getting a cab can be, negotiating a rate and then surviving the rollercoaster ride into the city. Having someone pick us up, handle all our luggage and deliver us to our hotel in the convenience of a new van was priceless! The next day, Michael met us at the hotel to begin our tour. On our first day, we asked for him to accompany us as a translator so we could purchase draperies at the local textile markets. Form past experience, this is invaluable. He made our search, description of what we wanted and negotiation to the local tailor a breeze. The second day, he met us in the morning to begin our tour of the Summer Palace. He provided excellent information before we arrived and accompanied us through the Palace. Michael's easy going attitude made the tour very enjoyable. After the tour, he selected a local restaurant to go to which was an excellent choice. This tour day concluded with a visit to the Temple of Heaven. Our day was really fun! Just when we thought the day was over, Michael gave us opportunity to have a rickshaw tour of a local Hutong. This was such a cool tour!! I'd highly recommend it if you have opportunity. The third day, we started early and set off to the great wall. This was the hi-lite of my family's trip! Michael gave us a bit of history while we travelled there and then walked the wall with us. The day was gorgeous and warm - it was perfect in every regard. He allowed us as much time as we wanted and didn't press us to keep a specific schedule. It was very relaxing. The last day, he brought us to the Forbidden City. His explanations through out the tour really provided insight into what we were looking at and gave us a glimpse into the past history of this amazing country. Michael also arranged our transfers back to the airport at the end of our 9 day trip. He also followed up on our drapery delivery which was above and beyond what was expected. I would sincerely recommend Michael and his company if you are planning tours in Beijing. You won't be disappointed!

    Terry took us, me + my 13 year old grandson, all over Beijing from the Forbidden City to the hutongs to the Mutianyu Great Wall to the Acrobatic Show to the Pearl Market and to and from the airport. Terry is the BEST. He explained all the places and history in very very good English. He took us only where we wanted to go and stayed at places only as long as we wanted to. He made us love Beijing!

    Very good the tour. I recomended it with also Terry the guide. He was very profesional and nice guide. The only think I will recomend it is to use a newer van or transportarion. Even we had to stop for 30 minutes in the road because the driver fou d a noice in the engine of the van.

    If you think you can all this in two days, you are crazy...Unless you have Terry as your guide! What an amazing experience, and if you have not been to these sites, you just cannot fathom how large they are and how many people are there. Terry made the difference and we had an amazing time! Terry knew all the right places to go for photo's and where to breaks in the crowd were, all the places were great and we totally recommend this tour!
