I hired John to take my brother and his family to the Great Wall. I live in China and have hired many drivers. John was EXCELLENT! Even though I speak Mandarin, John s English is impressive and helpful for all those who don t speak Mandarin. I highly recommend John to anyone needing a high quality, ethical driver. In fact, I m about to email him again to make another reservations for friends of mine who are visiting me in October.

My husband Chris and I rode with Johnny to the Great Wall. From the second he picked us up at our hotel (whose location many cabbies can t find), it was like hanging out with an old friend. He was friendly, accommodating, and made us feel comfortable and safe. His 10 years of navigating the streets of Beijing gave us the confidence to enjoy our ride as we checked out the sights. And his conversation was jovial, informative, and warm. Johnny had us to the Great Wall early in the morning, even before any of the vendors were out, and we had a wonderfully uncrowded and personal experience of the Great Wall. Afterwards, we marveled at Johnny s skills hacky sack skills, which are just about as good as his driving skills. My husband got to kick around with him at the bottom of the mountain, in the shadow of the wall, which was pretty darn cool. Johnny didn t even mind when we napped on the way home. 😉

My parents always told me never to talk to strangers and certainly never get in a car with one. However, am I ever so happy I ignored their instruction. John does what he advertises and promises. He is reliable and collects you when and where specified. He s very flexible (he swung by the airport en route to the Great Wall to collect colleagues) and navigates traffic in a rather un-Chinese fashion. He pointed us in the right direction to get tickets, drinks, etc. and gave us some good tips. I d recommend him.

John was honest, reliable, safe, helpful, energetic, great with kids, good clean new car..worth it! We had a great day today climbing the wall with our 3 kids and John made the experience even better than the natural beauty would have. Thanks John!

We will always remember John with great fondness, he made our few days in Beijing so enjoyable. It was so interesting hearing about his life and his family. He is a fantastic driver. We would recommend him whole heartedly.

Me and my husband hired John for 2 days (17-18Feb2012) to drive us around Beijing, Ming Tombs and Great Wall as recommended by our 3 friends. He speaks english very well! John is very friendly, punctual and hard working. He brought us to 2 restaurants for lunch during our 2-day trip and the food was great and very affordable! His services exceeded our expectations and we were very happy. One of the best experiences we had in Beijing!!! Will definitely recommend to our family, friends and colleagues!!!! 🙂 Thanks John for a wonderful trip in Beijing! We will see you again on our next trip to Beijing!!! 🙂 Ces and Dre from Philippines

My friends and I have used John as our driver for airport transfer and a day tour to Great Wall of China and Summer Palace. Firstly, he is a very nice person, friendly, honest, humourous and down to earth guy! He speaks good english and he is never selfish in sharing his knowledge as well as introducing good places to vist without any word of complaint! He has a great 7-seater car, neat and comfortable! I highly recommend his service to anyone who is visiting to Beijing! Call him and he is always there to greet you with his warm customer service and punctuality! 5 Stars!!!! THank you John CKay, Winni and 丽芳 from Singapore!

We used John for two days days in September. He was AMAZING and made our stay in Beijing fantastic. John showed us everything we had requested and was very informative, personable and funny. Sites that we visited included the Great Wall, Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City, Ming Tombs and Summer Palace. John even took us to some local restaurants. We highly recommend John!

We had John and his friend take a group of us in two vehicles to tour the Great Wall and drop us off at the Forbidden City over two years ago July 16, 2009. Both were friendly and professional. Good to do business with.

John was the best part of our Beijing trip. He is like having a personal friend to take you around while answering any and all questions we had about life in Beijing. He took 4 of us to the Great Wall in comfort. John seemed to know everyone from the security people at the Wall to the family at a great nearby restaurant. John will happily take you where you want to go, but my advise is to take his suggestions; not pushy just very informative! Our mistake was that we used John for only 1 day. I would of had John drive us to several locations had I known about him.

We just returned from a quick trip to Beijing. The highlight was our day with John. He picked us up promptly at 7 am - and off we went to the M. Great Wall. He is an excellent driver and speaks really good English. Mostly though, he is just a really great guy; fun to be around and very open. He took us to a fantastic local place for lunch. We went to the Summer Palace as well. Everything was on our own time frame; never rushed. I would tell anyone to use John as a driver. Great value. Wonderful experience!! Thanks, John!!!

I used John for 2 days and found him excellent. Among his many traits,his best feature is his honesty. I had purchased a gift for my wife and by mistake left in my hotel in Beijing. Not only did John make the effort of going to the hotel and getting my package but he mailed it to me in Canada at his expense. He could have easily kept it but because he is so honest, my wife has her gift from China. Thank you, John, and all the other people involved who, anyone of them,could have kept this gift. He is truly a fine gentleman.

Our trip to Mutianyu Great Wall, Summer Palace was made so much fun enjoyable by John Yellowcar! John can communicate in English very well unlike most of Beijing people. He even assisted us bargain for name stamps at Great Wall, brought us to local restaurants where we had a taste of donkey dumpling, and the best tasting and sanitary local restaurant near Summer Palace - Xiangyangtun. Best of all, since we started the day at 6:30AM (no traffic yet), we had extra time FRUIT PICKING! John as a driver and tour guide, in so many ways, exceeded our expectations! Quite higher priced but more than worth it! (Celfon # +86-136-110-796-97 is highly recommendable! Make sure to schedule in advance, he is so in demand.:twinky:

We also had Mr. Sun. He was very punctual, and safe driver and even better knew where the cleanest bathrooms were (great after a few days in China). We had some wonderful conversation on the differences and similarities of life in both our countries. We very much enjoyed our day with him and would reccommend him highly.

Our driver was not John as his schedule was not available; but he recommended us a friend of his: Mr. Sun (Sun Qian) It was a really good recommendation, Mr. Sun is also a safe, reliable, honest, punctual driver with a positive attitude. My parents, my wife and I were all happy to have him as our driver for two days. So, if John s schedule is not available just ask him to arrange Mr. Sun for you.. PS: Special note for Mr. Sun: Merhaba Obama 🙂

John ... Just back from our China adventure. You made our visit to Beijing, special. The Great Wall visit was spectacular. You were on time, reliable, informative and reasonable. I would recommend you to all. We never did eat TOFFU - couldn t get over the smell. Thanks, once again for your assistance. ... Trevor and Christine

Thank you John for an awesome trip to the Great Wall!! We loved it! For those of you looking to visit the Great Wall or other Beijing attractions, the driver service is the way to go. John was referred to us by a friend. He suggested we leave early in the morning to beat the tour buses and crowds at the Wall, it worked out perfectly, there was barely anyone else there. He is a safe driver, and has a nice clean and comfortable car. Most importantly, John is a super nice guy, great to chat with on the drive, he speaks really good English, would love to visit him again in Beijing someday!

To all readers! I have hired John to drive me around Beijing and the Great Wall. John was very helpful and his English is very good! Also, he made excellent suggestions for shopping,lunch, and where to go for sightseeing to avoid other tourists. I had a wonderful time, and even gave him a video recommendation (that I cannot post here). I highly recommend John, he is trustworthy, knows how to drive in Beijing, and is honest and hardworking, and his English is above average! Thank you John!
