John was great; easily the best hired driver I had in China. He took us to Mutinanyu and Summer Palace and even helped us buy our tickets. Great job John.
Me and my boss Hans had a very enjoyfull day last week with John , Summer palace, Mutainyu and the great wall and finaly ending up getting help shopping. We can highly recommend John - flexible, good english, positive and not to forget a nice and comfortable car. Thank you John - next time in Beijing a ask for your service again!
:smile:Fantastic trip with John. The four of us (two adults two kids) had an easy day all thanks to John. Highly recommend him for any trip you are thinking of doing. Great to get to know you John.
I booked a trip with John to Mutianyu because of all the positive comments on the web. It was exactly as described: good driver, good English, open for suggestions, ... Over all it was a fun trip and I will certaily use his services again ....
:b_smile::b_smile::b_smile::b_smile: hi how do you do.
This guy does as he advertises! After some mail conversation he picked us up at 7:00 from the hotel for a drive to the great wall at Mutianyu. The drive was pleasant and John had some nice stories to tell about Beijing, the wall and China. His english is pretty good. And what a pleasant experience it was to be absolutely alone on that part of the wall. At first we were a bit anxious because we read some bad stories online about someone who calls himself John Ping, but he made it clear over the email that there was nothing to be afraid of. An indeed there wasn t. Nice guy, nice car and a nice day 🙂
If you are in need of a driver in Beijing, I would highly recommend John. My two friends and I booked a trip on February 1st, 2010 to the Great Wall-Mutianyu and then requested a visit to the Ming Tombs which John readily accomodated. John is professional, prompt, and courteous. He has a good command of the English language and excellent safe driving skills. His car is roomy and clean; a very enjoyable experience. Wish you continued success with your business, John. I look forward to seeing you again whenever I return to Beijing. Sincerely, Linda
John made my visit to Beijing relaxing, fun, enriching and memorable. He is a great driver, guide and conversationalist. He picked me up at my hotel at 7:15 a.m. sharp and had me at Mutianyu before 9:00 a.m.. Next he took me to the Dongwu market for high quality genuine silk gifts … at fair prices with no haggling. And then it was off to a very genuine, local dumpling lunch. After all this we were at the airport by 3:00 for my 5:00 flight back to New York … who could ask for more! I would receommend John to everyone visiting Beijing Also, I cannot recommend enough getting a early start to the Great Wall. Being there by 9:00 a.m. in the off season – January – I had the privilege of an hour walking on the wall before I saw another person ….remarkable!
We were fortunate to have John as our driver last Dec.26. He took us to GW-Mutianyu and to Summer Palace. John is a pleasant individual and accommodating, he can communicate well in English and shares stories about Beijing which are interesting – he shares stories in such a way that makes you feel comfortable with him. Definitely, he is strongly recommended as your tour driver around Beijing and can take you anywhere within the day.
This guy is great. The best it could happen to me in Beijing. Great knowledge and great competence.:b_smile:A must in Beijing !!!
Hi John After a hectic couple of weeks I finally have time to drop you a line. Thanks for a wonderful day taking us to the Great Wall & Temple of Heaven. We took some really awesome photos which will always remind us of our time in Beijing. I can unreservedly recommend you to anyone interested in hiring a driver whilst in Beijing. I ve traveled extensively in Asia and with John it was one of the few times you felt that you got your money s worth hiring a car + a driver. Great job John and have a happy 2010 and Year of the Dragon. Shafeek
Hi John We just wanted to say thank you for the day that we recently spent with you in Beijing. Your English is excellent, and you have a lovely comfortable car. We hope one day you get your dream of an orange Lambourghini!! We can t recommend your services enough - from the moment we were picked up we felt so comfortable, and it was interesting to learn so much about life in Beijing and your adorable family. We look forward to coming back to Beijing one day and meeting you again! Thankyou
Hello John... and thank you for for guiding us through a great day in and around Beijing. We had a wonderful time and we will both treasure memories of our brief time together in the Middle Kingdom s North Capital. We are especially grateful that you arranged a blue sky day for us. When we arrived in Mutianyu and saw the Great Wall snaking across the mist shrouded mountains we were verklempt. The Panjiayuan Market visit in the afternoon was a great stroke of last minute planning which you made happen. We would never have found our own way to such an interesting and vast collection of ecletic goods for sale and people selling them... we felt far from the beaten tourist track indeed. We appreciated your safe driving, wealth of knowledge and interesting chatter about this and that. We ll be looking you up during our next visit to your amazing and intriguing city. Your Canadian friends, Noel and Robert
John, We wanted to write you to let you know how great your service was. You truly made our trip unforgettable and we wanted to let you know. I am sure we will be contacting you again for our next trip. We will recommend you to everyone we know that will be coming to your home town. Thanks for your endless care, laughter, and overall guidance throughout our time together. Thanks, Erica and David
:b_smile: Hi John - it seems a long time since we were in Beijing - as you know we went on to Mongolia for 3 weeks to see our new granddaughter. We had a wonderful day with you visiting the Great Wall and the Temple of Heaven and introducing you to Buddhist vegetarian food. You are an excellent driver and entertaining company - we will recommend you to anybody who is visiting Beijing. Our holiday wouldn t have been half as good without you. Thank you so much. We took many presents from England for our eldest granddaughter, but her favourites were the Chinese Olympic figures which you gave us to take to her! Good luck to you and you family for the future. Lynn, Steve and Jill.
Hello John, We would like communicate our great satisfaction about our trip with you to Mutianyu Great Wall last June (2009) 9th. We will never forget this day and the great quality of your service as a driver. We keep a great souvenir of you. For everyone who looking for a driver to go to the Great Wall or other sites in Beijing area, John is a very good reference. His english speaking is very good. He is a nice driver (when we start from Beijing, we would find that he driven a little bit to fast for us; we prevent him and immediately, John adjust his driving for our great satisfaction). He a very nice guy we recommand without any hesitation. Thanks John and best souvenirs.
Dear John, It is July, and I wanted you to know Monica STILL talks about what a wonderful driver guide you were for their (Beth Melanie Andrea Monica s) trip in March. We hope to be back in Beijing next year and we will be calling you!
i halo John, it was nice to meet you we really enjoyed the tour with you. you are friendly funny clever guide*:) thank you. Anna and Peter i :twinky:
John, We spent 3 days with you last week, and are still talking about how wonderful you were! As a guide, you are knowledgeable and accommodating. Your english is fantastic. As a human being, you are funny, compassionate and open! The way you were with the orphans we visited says so much about your heart. We love you, John!
On our three day trip to Beijing, John arranged for a guide for us one day in the city, a driver to take us to the Great Wall (he was unavailable so got one of his friends to do it) and on the last day he took us to the Summer Palace and then to the airport. We were really impressed by him and his professionalism, as well as the people he recommended. Soon after we arrived at the hotel, he phoned to confirm our arrangements for the next day, and did so each evening for the following day. I highly recommend him - lovely guy. Best Leonie
