We went on a tour of the Great Wall at Jinshanling, which is a good mix of restored and un-restored. It was rugged, steep and I could appreciate the human cost of building the wall in such difficult terrain. There were a few steep sections, which is great, if only i had a para-glider for the return trip :-). Our... More

I would like to thank Catherine Lu Tours for helping me plan this trip and promptly reply to all my requests.

I booked my trip to Beijing eight days before departure. I knew there was no way I could cover as much ground and appreciate the sites I'd visit without someone to provide me the local and historical context. As a stroke of luck, I was paired with Tracy from Catherine Lu Tours who provided me with so much more than... More

I strongly recommend visiting the great wall even tough it was raining during our walk. Justin was my tour guide and he is just awesome. We went to a really nice and local place to eat as well and I loved the food. Justin gave me some really good tips as well about Beijing that were very useful. Planing to... More

I got to know about Catherine Lu because I chanced upon a blog. And am so Glad to have chanced upon it. Catherine was prompt in answering my emails, gave suggestions, recommended options: everything was smooth. We took the Great Wall and Ming Tomb private tour. A Passat car was there at the hotel with our guide Steven Lee. And... More

Visited Beijing with 3 young children and it was enjoyable and fuss free sightseeing having booked with Catherine Lu tours. Price was reasonable and it was fully customizable. Our guide knew the answers to just about everything we asked! There were so many stories he could tell us which greatly enriched our experience. Extremely professional , great recommendations for food... More

I found out about Catherine Lu here on Trip Advisor and now I understand why it's so well rated! I used them to pick me up at the airport as well as for a 1-day private tour in Beijing. We did Forbidden city and Wall (mutianyu, including toboggan down!). Sonia was extremely nice taking the time to explain us everything... More

We chose Catherine Lu Tours due to the number of great reviews we read. We emailed to request a private tour with trek along the 'wild wall' and crossing into Mutianyu Great Wall section. The tour was the Hiking from Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall. For us this was the best option that allowed us to spend longer on the... More

This was my first trip to Beijing and I was traveling with my mom and a friend. We booked a 4 day private tour of Beijing plus an airport transfer. Catherline Lu Tours was so professional and helpful in every part of the process. First she was flexible when booking the tour to switch from a two person tour to... More

I was surprised to see how highly rated this company was but they did not disappoint. Our trip to China would have have been the same without them.
