Hello Tour Beijing,
Vivian, a sales manager at Tour-Beijing, did a fantastic job of coordinating a wonderful trip for myself and my friend. She helped make our travel dreams become reality. Our guides were all fantastic. They always showed up on time (including at the airports), which put my friend and I at ease, seeing as we did not have phones with SIM card capabilities. They all spoke English proficiently, and we did not have any communication issues. I highly recommend Tour-Beijing!
