  1. My partner and I organised simon to take us to Mutianyu for the day . His english is fluent his mannerism is faultless and basically I recommend all my friends who want a friendly reliable driver who want to plan their own course to contact Simon. His price is very good and his vehicle was clean /and comfortable. If you go to Mutianyu Great wall …make sure you purchase a toboggan ticket to come down’ ..that was a lot of fun.

  2. On the evening of November 22 2013 I arrived in Beijing in transit and decided to visit the Mutianyu Great Wall the following morning before my 1:20pm flight. After a quick browse on various travel websites, Simon’s name kept coming up as a reliable private driver and I can now attest to this!

    What I liked about Simon’s service:
    1. In our correspondence emails prior to my trip, he responded very quickly – if not within minutes, definitely within hours.
    2. He was punctual and picked me up from my hotel on time.
    3. He has a good working knowledge of the english language and was good company and gave helpful tips and advice.
    4. He is a good driver and I felt safe at all times – perhaps he’s even too careful as I’m a bit of a fast driver! 🙂
    5. He is very thoughtful, providing a water bottle and asked me if the temperature of the car was okay throughout the trip.
    4. When we arrived at the Great Wall, he assisted me with the purchase of the the entry ticket and cable car tickets.
    5. His service is very reasonably priced compared to other private drivers in Beijing.

    Overall Simon is very thoughtful and professional and I really appreciated his service and fully recommend him! All the best to you Simon.

  3. I engaged Simon’s service to Mutianyu Great Wall per recommendation from my sister (who ironically came here to visit me last April). I normally do have some regular folks in Beijing when I required excursions, but then decided to engage Simon instead.

    It was a good experience, especially helpful as Simon can speak good English as my partner doesn’t understand Chinese, and the trip was for him. I am very particular about timing, and Simon was punctual. And throughout the excursion, he was ready to offer information. Safety wise, it is acceptable as well.

    Overall, I would recommend him to visitors and residents in Beijing required some travel excursions.

  4. I had the pleasure of engaging Simon’s services to drive me to the Mutianyu Great Wall in August 2013. Simon is very professional: he has a clean car; he was punctual, offered suggestions readily and was never pushy. Simon was also flexible in accommodating last-minute changes to the itinerary – I made an extra trip to the Olympic venues (the Bird Nest) on my way back to the hotel from the Mutianyu Great Wall. Thank you, Simon!

    I am extremely happy with Simon’s services and would not hesitate to recommend his services.

  5. I used Simon’s service for Great Wall visit during a recent stay in Beijing.
    Simon has a clean car and he is very safe driver. He speaks English very well.
    His most attractive trait is that he is extremely sincere and professional.
    He responded to emails within hours and was very punctual at pickup time at hotel.
    He helped with ticket purchase at the wall, gave very useful suggestions and also loaned a spare mobile with his number preprogrammed to contact him from the Wall.
    I would strongly recommend him with full enthusiasm.

  6. We had a great holiday in Beijing because of the good service from Simon, our guide and taxi driver.
    Besides the fact that Simon is a good driver, he is also very thoughtful and helpful. He is always on time and takes care for the right drops and pickups at the right places, and, if necessary, for the right tickets. He also recommended local food specialties and trips. Because off that, our experience with the Chinese culture has been even better.
    By this way we will thank you very much for everything.

  7. We have got the pleasure of having Simon as tour guide for four days in Beijing, and a airport pickup and drop off, at the airport Simon was strictly on time.

    Every day he picked up as at the hotel, Simon was very strict and always on time. At al the places we have being, Simon has made sure that we were optimizing our time and maximizing our travel experience, by suggesting itinerary, ticket purchase, accommodating our requests or advising on restaurant and what we should eat.

    I would recommend Simon without hesitation.
    Simon, thank you for made our stay in Beijing a great success !

  8. My friend and I recently used Simon to drive us to the Great Wall at Mutianyu and to the Ming Tombs. Simon was very reliable, charged a reasonable price, and he was at all times polite with a good command of English. He is a nice, genuine guy. We were very happy with the day and would recommend him highly for your tours while you are in Beijing.

  9. I recently had the pleasure of Simon’s company on my travels in Beijing. I visited the Summer Palace and Mutianyu section of the great wall. He was prompt, friendly and very informative throughout the day. I would fully recommend his services.

  10. My friend and I went to see the Great Wall at Mutianyu and used Simon’s service. He was absolutely fantastic. Prior to visiting Beijing, Simon was great in responding back to emails and gave great advice in terms of planning for the day. On the day itself, Simon arrived promptly at our hotel and was extremely friendly and informative during the journey. He was able to help with purchasing the tickets and made the whole day run very smoothly. I would highly recommend his service. Thanks again Simon.
