Customer: Jillian Dec .13 , 2017 Lauma, our guide, made the trip very memorable. She was able to give a detailed history of all of the locations we visited and also had a great sense of humor. She kept us listening and often kept us laughing as well. We enjoyed talking to Lauma about the history of China as well as today's culture. She made us feel comfortable and it just felt like we were on vacation with a friend rather than on a private trip with a guide. She made sure we were in control of the trip and if we wanted to stay at a site longer - we did. If we were tired and ready to go back to the hotel - we did. This was a nice option to have as opposed to a group travel. One of the most memorable experiences we had was our visit to the Summer Palace. Near the temple we could hear singing from atop the hill. At the top, there was a group of retirees signing classic Chinese songs and dancing in the park. When we made it to the top of the stairs they invited us to join them.
Thank you again for arranging a great trip to Beijing!
