Jacky Lee my tour guide was absolutely incredible - I ended up having the tour completely to myself and it was one of the best days of my life. Thank you for finding such great people to lead the tour!!
Excellent value tour prompt pick up on time by our English speaking guide Jason Howe was very informative
first stop The Great Wall-JUYONGGUAN breathtaking experience not as crowed as other sections very step stairs up not for the unfit.
Second stop The Ming Tombs peaceful and architecturally brilliant well worth the drive
Lunch was in the jade factory restaurant, Jason made sure our lunch was to our specification (vegetarian)
finished the day off with a Tea Ceremony.Highly Recommended !!
Since I was the only one on this tour for that day, the tour became a private one. Michael, the English speaking guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The punctuality of starting time at the hotel was commendable.
Please ignore previous rating. The trip was amazing and it was great to go to wild parts of the wall away from the busy areas. Frank our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We really enjoyed staying in the farmhouse with great food and atmosphere.
Visiting the tombs were good, but getting to see and explore a segment of the Great Wall was amazing! Our guide was wonderful - very knowledgeable and a great photographer to boot. She was kind enough to take pictures of all of us to record this incredible experience. This day was much richer with all of the historical tidbits that was shared by our guide. This tour is very highly recommended.
Great tour of the city, the guide was great and the program flexible. Would thoroughly recommend the tour
Jason speaks perfect English and is a wonderful and honest guide. He is also a huge American sports fan which makes for great conversation.
We had an incredible day on this tour. Not only was our guide Jason passionate and a wealth of information but the tour truly encompassed the very best that Beijing has to offer. The views from Jingshan Hill and the Great Wall were breathtaking. While I'm not usually a fan of duck, the Peking duck was unique and delicious. Trying it is a must. With Beijing being a very busy and sometimes chaotic city, having our guide meant we could relax and simply take in the beauty around us, especially in the massive Forbidden City. Thank you for an unforgettable day in Beijing!
WOW! Where do I even begin? This was the tour of a lifetime! We were picked up by an incredible guide who was so excited to show us his city. We were a little worried about the language barrier but he spoke perfect English. This tour was literally like walking through history and I couldn't believe how much we fit into one day. I loved being able to explore the Forbidden City both from inside and from Jingshan Hill where you see an incredible birdseye view. From up there, you really get a sense of the immensity of this place. But my favorite part had to be walking on the Great Wall of China -- a dream of mine since I was young! What I loved especially about seeing this part of the Wall is that there were no crowds. In fact we were the only people there! And to be walking on such an important part of history while taking in the panoramic views was worth the trip to Beijing!
Delete the jewery stop and spend more time a the greatwall
Great tour guide
excellent! michael the tour really did a great job! kudos!
Just excellent! So much of knowledge and insight about the history and culture, and the Chinese way of life. And the scenery, wow! The guide knew just where to go and when, just marvellous!
The tour went really well. The tour guide was very imformative explaining everything at the Great Wall and the Ming Tombs. He took us to the Ming tombs first explaining that there would be less people there in the morning since most tour guides go to the Great Wall first. He was correct, as there were not many people at the Ming Tombs while we were there.
From there we went to the Great Wall the tour guide explained that we could go to different parts of the wall, one which would not be as many people or to the more well known portion. He left it up to us.
After we were done he took us to a pearl market, where they showed us how/where the pearls come from and of which they tried to sell us pearls.
Lastly the tour guide offered to drop us off at the Summer Palace or at our hotel. Of which we went to the Summer Palace and were very grateful.
Overall it was a great time and I highly recommend the tour guide
What a great way to see Beijing in a day! Mr. Jackie Lee is an amazing tour guide, with a wealth of knowledge and a good sense of humor. We saw so much of Chinese culture and the main sights that I felt that the one day I spent in Beijing was completely sufficient. I'd highly recommend this tour, if you have limited time, or just want to be very efficient with your time.
