Prashanth ML     I visited Beijing from October 6th to October 11 2011 with my parents from India. Kevin was our guide during this time.He is very polite and thoughtful in making sure that everyone had memorable time in Beijing. He managed to guide us through every site we visited without any rush or hurry. Kevin speaks good English and is knowledgeable about the history and provided us with stories about Beijing throughout our journey. I have recommended Kevin to my colleagues and friends.
