Beijing subways and guides

Jump to last reply

Hi - Some Beijing questions on guides, drivers, subways. We only speak/understand english.
1) Are the Beijing subway stops announced in english? Are the stops displayed in chinese or english characters? Will we have a hard time navigating the subways ?
2) Should we have guides/drivers take us to the main tourist sites? If so, should we pre-book online or contact the concierge? Or just hop in a cab?
3) Any recommended guides or drivers for touring Beijing?
Thanks in advance.
