This three places are a Must See when in Beijing. But what made this tour exceptional was our tour guide Cris. Her knowledge of history, besides her charisma and easy way to explain each corner of these places were an important difference in the way to see the city. At lunch she took us to a restaurant where locals use to go, the food was so good, making us really understand the culture and behave of the people of Beijing. Details like these makes the difference of a good tour guide and the others. Thanks Cris for this extraordinary experience!

It was really good but there were things I wasn't prepared for that I would omit ie I didn't realise we were stopping to shop for so long at the mall which is mainly silk items - although interesting I would rather have had more time at the Great Wall and to take pictures rather than be rushed about

Cynthia, my tour guide, was fantastic. She made sure everything was covered and was fun to spend the day with! I had a terrible cold while I was in Beijing, so Cynthia tailored the tour to suit how I was feeling on the day, which was much appreciated.

My husband and I joined this special Beijing tour. In terms of sightseeing, the general experience was fantastic, and we felt we were treated like VIPs as what the name of the tour suggested. We were the only clients in an air-conditioned car, along with the tour guide and the driver. The experienced tour guide stayed with us most of the time and provided useful historical background information at each point of interest. An unique aspect of this tour was that we could visit different attractions at our own pace, and this tour allowed us to visit multiple Beijing attractions within one day which fitted our packed schedule. Two things to improve on. Firstly, the quality of the lunch especially the Peking Duck was below standard when the tour description mentioned that as a highlight of the lunch. The dish we had was rough and dry. Secondly, we were surprised to be taken to two stores with one selling jade products and another selling silk products. It was ok to be taken to those places, and we were not pressured to make any purchases. Our experience could have been better if we were informed of those surprised visits in the Viator itinerary ahead of time.
