Already 17 pages in this guestbook with nothing but positive experiences and happy people! After 4 intensive days with Joe as our guide, we can acknowledge that everyone speaks the truth! Joe is really a very nice guy and is always in a good mood. He knows an awful lot about all historic highlights and although he has visited some sites already hundreds of times, he is still very enthusiastic about his job. Besides this, it's a pleasure to talk with him about everyday life in Beijing and the Chinese society in general, and he is very well informed about what happens in the rest of the world as well. As mentioned before by others, his English is really good, he is very helpful and flexible, and not for the least, he has a comfortable new car.
We can warmly recommend Joe's guiding service to anybody who is bringing a visit to Beijing!

Onze trips met Joe zijn heel goed verlopen; wat een aardige, vrolijke en vriendelijke man! Hij was op maandag keurig op tijd en begroette ons met excuses (sorry, sorry, sorry) over het vergeten ophalen van het vliegveld. Al gauw waren we deze domper vergeten.

Het was jammer dat het maandagmorgen regende maar tegen de middag klaarde het gelukkig op en kwam de zon door. Hij reed ons naar het stadje Wanping en de Marco Polo brug en vervolgens naar het Zomerpaleis. Hij vergezelde ons op onze wandeling door het park van het Zomerpaleis en vertelde vele verhalen. Ook tijdens het rijden door de stad vertelde Joe veel over de gebouwen die te zien waren en beantwoorde onze vragen deskundig.

Dinsdag was een prachtige dag; helder blauwe lucht. We vertrokken om 7.00 uur naar The Great Wall en Joe zette ons na 2 1/2 rijden af, halverwege Simatai, zodat we konden lopen naar Jinshanling. We kregen goede uitleg van Joe. Na 1400 traptreden kwamen we boven, links af naar Simatai (dit gedeelte van de muur is niet open voor publiek) rechts af naar Jinshanling. Ongeveer 4 uur hebben we gelopen op de muur, gedeeltelijk in gezelschap van 2 vrouwen uit een boerendorp vlakbij. Toen we weer beneden kwamen stond Joe, volgens afspraak, keurig te wachten in de auto en keerden we terug naar Beijing. Joe is mee geweest naar het postkantoor en heeft ons allervriendelijkst geholpen met het kopen van de juiste postzegels en het versturen van ansichtkaarten.

Mochten vrienden en kennissen naar Beijing gaan dan zullen we Joe zeker aanbevelen, ondanks het ophaalmoment. Hij heeft ons als verontschuldiging een hele leuke gift gedaan namelijk 2 krukjes, (van afvalhout en autogordels) waarover ik hem op maandag een vraag had gesteld waar deze te koop waren. Hij wist het niet maar kwam de volgende dag, na afloop van de trip, als verrassing hiermee aanzetten. We hebben ze nog mee naar Nederland kunnen krijgen ook! Een mooi aandenken.

On Sept 29, 2013 I was in Beijing staying at a hotel in the Lake District. I was looking for an English speaking tour guide with a car to take myself and my girlfriend to see the Great Wall at Mutianyu. I did a search on TripAdvisor.com and read about Joe Qiao - Joe has excellent reviews so I decided to give him a shot.

We emailed Joe, he promptly replied and made arrangements to pick us up at our hotel. Joe also called us to confirm the arrangements. The next day Joe was punctual when he arrived at our hotel.

We spent the whole day with Joe, he is a terrifically informed guide, great fun to be with, his command of English is excellent and his driving is top notch. Joe’s car is a big late model Peugeot luxury sedan with a roomy rear cabin – also, his rates are more then fair.

If you are looking for an intelligent and attentive Beijing Driver/Guide with a big comfortable, safe car I highly recommend Joe Qiao.

Two thumbs up for Joe!

How good is it to be picked up at Beijing airport early in the morning by a smiling guy! Joe brought us to our hotel, helped us checking in as nobody spoke English, and came back at noon to have lunch with us and discuss the program for the following days. He also gave us a local sim-card we could use to call him if necessary, which was appreciated very much.

We visited many of Beijing's highlights with him, he knows a lot about Chinese culture and history and is an entertaining story-teller. A very friendly, helpful person, full of humor, who gave us the feeling we knew him already a long time. His English is excellent, he is a perfect driver and very pleasant companionship. He made sure we maximized our week in Beijing by giving us all kind of information and advice on how to spend the rest of the time without him.

Fortunately we could spend our last afternoon in Beijing also with Joe, and after a delightul roast duck meal he brought us to the airport again.

Thanks Joe for your friendship, we can highly recommend your services to everyone!

We are two couples in our 60's and 70's who used Joes service for two days, 22nd and 23rd June . The first day he picked us up right on time at 7am to take us to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. He actually came up so far on the wall with us and gave us very Entertaining and. Educational lessons on the history of the wall which were very much appreciated. The afternoon was the Summer palace and Joe showed us right to the entrance and where to meet him after.

The second day we did the Temple of Heaven, Tiannmen Square, Fobidden city and the silk market. We found joe to be a delightful companion full of humour, an excellent driver with a very good command of English.

He also drives a very comfortable car.
Thank you Joe for two very good days and we would recommend your service without any hesitation.
