    Review of Dennis the guide for “A small group Beijing Night Walking Tour” Friday August 10th. What he had to offer us was a walk down the main shopping Boulevard and Street, a crowded bus trip to a crowded Houtong and a tour of the Bars and Beer and Wine Street. However, we had expected, from experience with other tour guides in China, to receive information about the history, culture and development of the city as well as the daily lives of residents in Beijing. This information was sparsely forth coming, unless we questioned him. Very often, he didn’t know the answers. By taking ourselves on a Walking Tour the following day, we discovered interesting markets, artisans, and typical examples of daily Chinese life. It seemed to us that he had come with his own agenda that was totally unrelated to our needs, age group and interests. It is a pity that he did not follow the tour as outlined in your advertisement on the internet.

    We had the tour to ourselves and Dean was a very professional guide showing us the sights. The route was a bit disappointing as we went through a lot of tourist traps and it wasn’t what we were expecting based on the description. Having said that Dean offered a lot of insight into the people, culture and history of Beijing and was a very knowledgable guide.

    I had the pleasure of being hosted by Dean on an evening tour of Beijing. He was knowledgeable, extremely polite and professional. His smile and positive demeanour were infectious, as he kindly led me on a walk, visiting local shops and places of interest. I must add that his grasp of English was very good. We finished at a restaurant and had a meal and a beer together. Thoroughly recommended!

    Tour guide was very knowledgeable, flexible, and patient. She offered a lot of great ideas for shopping gifts, sovenoirs and information about the area religions, culture, history, and architecture. She was even able to get me in a secured area to view. The walk was normal pace and great exercise. I highly recommend this guide and the tour. It will show you the hidden back street night life and capitalism in Beijing.

    This was really good to get a feel of the local markets in Beijing. I was solo on this tour and had the guide to myself which was great. The guide assisted with bartering of prices and understanding of what the food on display was! Great guide with local knowledge.

    This tour was a lot of walking. I was not expecting a three mile walk just to get from Snack Street to the Drum and Bell Tower. I loved the destination once we arrived, but walking in China, when you are not use to the streets and the pavement was a bit too much. We had a tour with 7 people and the tour guide went at our pace and stopped when someone needed to rest. I was very thankful the tour was limited to our group exclusively. The guide was incredibly informative and personable. His English was very easy to understand. Great experience, but again..... A lot of walking a little over 5 miles from Sunworld Dynasty Hotel to the end of the tour at Qianhai Park
