Simon was a really great host and fantastic with communication both while planning and during our tour. Simon picked us up on time and his car was very clean and comfortable. On our first day, he took us to the Great Wall and explained how to buy tickets, how to take the cable car up, etc. He was very specific about where he would meet us when we were finished and gave us his spare phone to call him if we needed anything. During the next day, we toured around the city of Beijing and Simon dropped us off and picked us up at each place. He was always ready when we called him and recommended a really delicious place for lunch near the Temple of Heaven. We really recommend booking a tour through Simon!

Hi. I used Simon service on my layover in China. He spoke English very well and responded to my inquiries quickly.

I would recommend him.

I don’t want to repeat others as everything was well organized, Simon is very friendly and consumer oriented. What we appreciate the most is Simon’s help in arranging our dinner. He not only booked a table for us but even wrote on a paper what shall we order in chineese. That was a briliant idea as no one in the restaurant was speaking english. You should have seen the waiter’s eyes and a happy smile after we gave him that paper:)

Henry was a fantastic chauffeur and tour guide. We had Henry pick us up in the morning at our Air Bnb. We visited The Great Wall and then the Summer Palace. Henry went above and beyond to pick us up at our location, give us great tidbits of history and even walk with us all the way up to the top of the chairlift at the wall.
Instead of the whole family waiting in line for the tickets, Henry got our tickets for us at the gate and gave us instructions.
You definitely require a driver to make it to the Great Wall and Simon's company had the best price I found online.

We arranged for 2 separate Beijing airport pickups along with a trip to Mutianyu part of the Great Wall. All the transfer were easy and convenient. We normally don't get private car service out the airport but decided to based on the time we were arriving.

We never met Simon, just the other guys who work with/for him. Mr Wang who drove us to the Great Wall was very nice even though he spoke very English. He was prompt and helped us get all of our necessary tickets at the window before sending us off while he waited. We bought the tickets for the roundtrip bus, entrance fee, tram up to the wall, toboggan tickets down (they don't US credit card, cash only). He also provided us with bottled water. Seemed like a very nice person but we didn't have a chance to communicate with him.

The only hitch we had was that I had asked to pay for all the rides at once but the driver who picked up my brother asked for payment which was handled in USD.
