I have before but prefer to do it myself. When in China try this location Beijing's new Golden Resources Shopping Mall. The place is great and you can find just about anything there. You can hire a guide that speaks the language for a fair price. Just make sure you have several days to shop. Also the 2.00 ride is a fair price to pay because walking all the time is nuts.

The reason I like to do things myself is how do you trust an agent. Are they really looking out for your best interests. What stops them from just taking your money also. So nothing is really secure without spending a ton of money legally. You have to know your agent like you do your suppliers. Just my thoughts. Sure there are other opinions out there. Also I like going to different places. good tax write off also if you are there on business.
