Our family of three (2 adults and 1 teen) was in Beijing for 2 days in March. We wanted to see as much as possible in a private tour. Vivie Tours was the BEST tour agent out of the MANY that I contacted. She was always quick to respond to emails and offered us an unbeatable price. She even replied to my emails while in Chinese New Year Celebrations.
Vivie customized the itinerary to our preferences that made our trip absolutely remarkable. The tour package includes private car, driver and guide. She also arranged for transportation from the train station to our hotel and dropped off at the airport on our last day in Beijing. She was so kind that she even sent us a gorgeous gift!
Everything we wanted to see was included in our tour. In just two days to do sight-seeing in Beijing, we visited everything and more than we initially planned in the most efficient way. We had a very comfortable and clean van, bottled water for our refreshment, and excellent private driver and tour guide.
Vivie was unable to be with us, but she still managed to coordinate everything.
Our tour guide Joyce (Vivie’s sister) was really fantastic. She is a very courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive person. Joyce was also extremely helpful recommending places to go for food. We would like to mention a beautiful and valuable gift that she sent us to our hotel on our last day. That was very kind of her and we will never forget such lovely and pleasant surprise.
On day one we visited the Beijing city highlights: The Temple of Heaven, Tian'anmen Square, Forbidden City, lunched at an excellent café-restaurant suggested by Joyce, and then toured the Old Beijing Hutongs and the Lama Temple. On day two we went to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall and the Summer Palace. We did in so much in two days because of the way Vivie planned out our trip.
The 2 full days’ tour far exceeded our expectations and had a great cost for everything that were included.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely consider Vivie Tours as our first choice in Beijing. We highly recommend Vivie Tours as your perfect choice for Beijing private tours.
Thank you very much Vivie and Joyce. We sincerely appreciated your assistance in making our two days at Beijing unforgettable.
Teresa, Robert and Roy

My wife and I have two young boys (ages 3 and 5). Traveling with them is frequently a lot of fun, but it can also be stressful and difficult. When we started to consider spending a week in Beijing, I was concerned that the logistical difficulties (language, transportation, food) of this type of trip might be so stressful that our “vacation” would leave me wishing I had spent the week at work instead. Then we found Vivie. Before the trip, she worked with my family to plan a custom travel experience (half day tours, airport pick ups, etc). Then, about a month or so before we were set to arrive in Beijing, my mother-in-law decided to join us. Was this going to be a problem? Not for Vivie. She seamlessly integrated a new member of our party into our previously established plan.

During the trip, Vivie consistently exceeded our expectations. She was consistent. Vivie always arrived when she said she would arrive and she always did exactly what she said she would do. She was flexible. For example, four members of our group are vegetarians. We failed to mentioned this before the trip. When we told Vivie, she was able to find amazing vegetarian restaurants for us to eat at every day. (My mother-in-law, who is not a vegetarian, spent much of the trip raving about the restaurants. I think she forgot that she likes meat.) She was very helpful. For example, we planned to go to the zoo on our own before the tour began. When we told Vivie, she gave us excellent advice about how to make this self guided adventure a success.

Overall, Vivie made our time in Beijing incredibly memorable. She was kind to our children and consistently anticipated the needs of our family before we knew those needs existed. If you want to see Beijing without worrying about any of the challenges, you should contact Vivie.
