Iris was a great tour guide. She showed me how to use the local transit and took me to the top locations. After the tour was done I was able to get around the city on my own. I highly recommend her.

I traveled to Beijing with my wife and Two kids 7, 1. I booked two days Beijing private tour with Iris in advance by contacting her via email. She was so prompt to reply my every email. I asked her help to booked my bullet train tickets from Beijing to Shanghai, which she did in advance with a perfect seat booking. She sent tour guide name Lily for Beijing tour and Lily was so friendly and helpful during two days trip. We are vegetarian and she help us to find veg food always. They will change plan according to your convince. Specially when you are having small kids along with you its really helpful to have a private tour and Iris is the perfect choice for you. And one more thing to mention about her is her tour price, which is really good compare to rest of tours and travel companies. She will give u all options like hire only car or hire car and tour guide both every price she will explain you. I really thankful to her and Lily for making my trip memorable. Recommended her to everyone who want to have a peaceful and hassle free trip to Beijing. As without guide its not easy to explore tourist place by own specially when you do not know the local language. It's worth to hire Iris for every penny you spend for the tour.

We recently arranged a 3 day trip in Beijing with Iris and had a wonderful time. Iris was completely flexible throughout the entire trip and accommodated any changes we wanted to make throughout it. Her knowledge of the various sites we saw was in depth and made the experience even more enjoyable. The car we used during the trip was very comfortable and the drivers very safe. Iris is a genuinely lovely and caring person and it was evident she wanted to ensure we had a great experience, which we definitely did. I highly recommend using Iris's Tour company and will definitely use the company again when planning a trip in China.

We had just few hours to visit Peking on our way back from Japan to Germany. So we decided to take a guide, to use the short time as perfect as possible. And it was the right decision to ask Iris! She picked us with a driver directly from airport,brought us to the Forbidden City,to Tiananmen and a very very yummy peking-duck-restaurant. And later back to the airport. Thank you so much Iris for this first intense impressions of Peking and China. We will come back!!!

Our trip to Beijing would not have been as enjoyable or as memorable without Iris. Her coordination of the locations, transportation and cuisine was excellent and her knowledge of the city and communication also terrific. Iris recommended us to see the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall which was a little further from Beijing city, but the number of people there was low and we were able to get some unbelievable pictures of only our family and the scenery. For a hassle free and enjoyable journey in China, we highly recommend her and her team to help.

First of all I wish I could rate Iris higher than 5 stars. My wife and I went to Beijing for a few days on a vacation through Asia and I wanted a guide for 3 days in Beijing to see the sites. I don't like group tours so we contacted tours by Iris for a private tour. Iris promptly responded to my inquiry and we made arrangements for our three days in Beijing. Iris was very punctual at our hotel. Our first day we visited Tiananmen, Forbidden City Hutong neighborhoods and Summer Palace. It was very hot this day, 99 degrees, and my wife and I had some issues with the heat. We are in our mid and late 50's and Iris was considerate by always trying to stay in the shade and had frequent rest stops, by the way we always had bottles of cold water in our driver's car. Iris was very knowledgeable about the history of each place we visited. The next day Iris and the driver took us to the Great Wall at Mutianyu, a less crowded and beautiful portion of the wall. Again, Iris was just wonderful about the stories of the wall and she also proved herself as a photographer. Our last day we started at the Temple of Heaven, again a very nice place and then my wife's favorite part of the trip, shopping. All I can say is that Iris has connections that my wife took advantage of. Our entire stay in Beijing would not have been as enjoyable without Iris. We believe that Iris is the best guide in Beijing and we also think of her as a member of our family. I highly recommend Tours by Iris.

I was initially afraid to come to China because of the language barrier. My husband and I hired Iris to take us around the sites of Beijing. Each day I became more comfortable with China and I came to adore Iris. She was very kind, her English was perfect and her knowledge of Beijing was extensive. I highly recommend Iris.

I was taking my dad to Beijing, since his life long dream had been to see the great wall of China. I had used Iris tours previously and this time too I went straight back to them to get a slightly modified tour. Iris was very helpful, and flexible. She had arranged a tour guide by the name of SNOW. She was extremely knowledgeable patient with my dad as he was feeble, and took us to an amazing restaurent later in the evening !
Highly recommend Iris tours for bespoke or group tours.

My family of 4 used Tours with Iris on our quick trip to Beijing. We had a driver pick us up at the hotel and take us to the Mutianyu Great Wall. They were great because we had not planned on going to the great wall until the next day, but our flight actually arrived early so, we called Iris and she was so flexible and changed our plans up on the spot. After the Great Wall our driver took us to our hotel where we met our guide, Freiya. She met us in the lobby of our hotel, helped us grab a quick bite to eat and showed us around the town for a few hours. We would not have learned so much about the history and culture without her. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining.
