Hi Isabel,

Here is what I wrote on TripAdvisor.

"My son and I spent 6 nights in China and we used China Discovery to book a driver and guide for 6 days. Her emails were very clear and she has very good English skills. She was very sweet and patient and helpful and everyone should ask to work with her. Isabel did such a good job planning our first 3 days, and the price seemed very fair, so I then had her also set up a driver and guide for us in Beijing.

We spent the four full days with the driver and Summer and we were able to see much, much more than we would have been able to see on our own. She was always checking with other guides she knew to help us avoid long lines and best plan each day. Plus Summer was very knowledgeable and informative about the places we visited and the history involved.  Summer spoke English extremely well. There was never a misunderstanding and we never even had to ask her to repeat anything due to her very high level of English skill. I cannot say enough nice things about Summer. I rate her a 10 out of 10.  She was very open in sharing how Chinese think and what they value and what they are like. You can see pictures of China on the Internet, but nothing can replace being with and interacting and getting to know the local people. I wish Summer all the best and anyone lucky enough to have her for a guide will not be disappointed.

We next went to Beijing. Again, with the driver and guide we were able to see much more in three days than if we had been on our own. It was well worth the added expense. In addition to seeing all the major sights, we had a Peking duck dinner, saw and acrobat show, and a kung fu show. All were very good. Our guide, who was named Hong, spoke English well and I would not hesitate to recommend her. She stayed with us at all times and even came into the airport when we left and helped make sure we got checked into our flight OK.

THANK YOU ISABEL, SUMMER, and HONG for making our trip go so smoothly and making it so special!!"

    The distinctive black and white animal is a national treasure in China and one of the rarest, most endangered bears in the world. A one-on-one encounter with a giant panda is a bucket list highlight and a must-do when you are in China. The time I spent witnessing such human dedication is truly eye-opening...
