Skye is a great human being and EXTREMELY HELPFUL. Her communication skills allowed us to experience all the attractions comfortably and knowledgeably. She was able to relate to our humor and provide us with unforgettable one-liners. If you are a lone traveler, couple, or family, you should not miss a chance to experience Beijing without her.

This was a first-rate experience all the way. My family of four from the US (couple with 2 kids age 12 and 9) enjoyed the tours that Skye organized for us over our short visit to Beijing. We explored the Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City / Tiananmen Sq, and the Hutongs on the first day. Day two included the Great... More

My husband and I recently had the good fortune to visit Beijing in April 2017. While exploring options for quick 2-day itineraries of Beijing, we stumbled upon Skye's private guide page. Skye quickly responded to our requests and tailored our tour to the Great Wall of China accordingly. While taking the two-hour drive to the area of the wall we... More

We took the 2 day tour of Beijing with Skye and she was an excellent tour guide. She promptly responded to all my emails prior to the visit. During the visit, Skye was very energetic and was very knowledgeable on the sites we visited. If I were in Beijing again I would definitely book another tour with Skye.

We hired her for a 3 day tour of the sites including a day at the Great Wall. Skye took care of all transportation, ticket purchases and organization of... More

Skye was highly recommended by a friend, unfortunately she was unavailable to take us when my wife and I were in Beijing. However, Skye sent a very pleasant colleague Lucy to take us to the Mutianyu Great Wall, Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Jingshan Park and Temple of Heaven. Lucy speaks good English, is well mannered, knowledgeable and recommended... More

We had a wonderful two-day private tour arranged by Skye (with our fabulous guide Lucy) - that included private transportation in a nice, new car with a separate (very skilled) driver. We had limited time in Beijing and we wanted to see a lot of things - and Skye arranged for us to see everything that we wanted to -... More

We did a fabulous two-day private tour with Skye, including private transportation in a minivan with separate driver. We visited Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, a Hutong Tour (included a rickshaw ride!), and the Silk Market. In addition, we had some great authentic meals with Skye. Lastly, she is a really good, willing... More
