Tour/Activity

Beijing Classic Full-Day Tour including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven

Beijing, China

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The Guide was great. I was the only person on the tour, however as with all tours in the region it was spolied by the visits to the Silk Factory, Pearl Factory and the attempted visit to the "Tea Tasting". Being the only person on this tour I didnt want to see any of them but was forced to go along as the guides get commision on the sales. The actual tour part was informative and enjoyable however the 3 hours or so of diversions would have been better spent enjpying some of Beijings other sites which i would have paid a few dollars more for.

Tour/Activity

Great Wall of China at Mutianyu Full Day Tour including Lunch from Beijing

Beijing, China

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This tour was enjoyable and I have only given it 3 stars owing to the side trips to the tea tasting and pottery factory,both of which where massivley over priced and to be honest another waste of 2-3 hours. The tour to this part of the wall was great. I ended up as part of a group of 4 of us and we had a really friendly guide. The wall at Mutianyu is about 3k long and we walked to the end section at the top of the tourist restored section and was an enjoyable couple of hours. This is not a full day tour, you spend 2 hours at the wall and then go along to the side "shopping" trips. Another couple of hours at the wall would have been better rather then trying to sell us a $450 pot. The cable car ride is worth the 60yuan price.

Beijing International Transfer: Airport (PEK) to Hotel Roundtrip

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is the one Tour that worked well. Frank my driver was top notch, got me to the hotel and back to the airport quick and safe and when he said he would. Real chatty guy, enjoyable hour each way, worth the money to see him standing there after the 12 hour flight, holding a card with your name an not having to worry about how your getting to your hotel.

Sydney Skywalk at Sydney Tower Eye

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

this is a really fun activity to do. unlike the Hackett tower in Macau this is all railed in and to be honest looses some of it's appeal as you are behind quite high rails, however it is a mush to do and the photo package is decent value.

Sydney Arrival Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

No problems with this service although the driver was a bit abrupt in his manner and telling me where to sit until we waitied for another flight to land. in Hindsight the train to downtown may have been better in terms of speed but all in all good value for money.
