We booked the tour with Roy after reading the many good reviews. We were not disappointed. Roy responded to all my questions patiently and promptly. His instructions were clear and accurate, and he was very helpful. The tour was very informative, with interesting stories and historical facts. Roy’s command of English is very good. I recommend anybody who’s visiting Beijing and requires an English speaking guide to consider touring with Roy.
