Beijing Historical Tour including the Summer Palace, Lama Temple and the Panda Garden

Beijing, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Good value for money; Michael was our guide, he's very nice, and knowledgeable. Saw everything we expected, lunch was good, visited a pearl factory (better prices than the other pearl place I'd been to in Suzhou) and a tea shop. I don't even drink tea yet still enjoyed this visit. Optional boat trip on the lake at summer palace, only 15 yuan. Recommended , it's good value.

Private Tour: Ming Tombs and Great Wall at Mutianyu from Beijing

Beijing, China

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A good day; seemed a little dear but saw nothing (trustworthy!) cheaper anywhere, not even from the hotel tour desk. Great to see the Wall. You wouldn't have time to walk up and back so the cable car is a necessary extra - 80yuan return trip and you choose cable or luge back down. We did the luge back down - and you can control the speed downhill yourself so it is fun, give it a go! Jason was our guide, very nice man and did a good job. Car and driver good. Lunch was fine with lots of dishes; the jade factory was interesting. Only disappointment is the fact that you can't actually go inside the excavated tombs, its just the above ground building with some of the relics inside. So the "underground Palace" isn't open to the public at all. A good day out, recommended.

Private Round-Trip Transfer: Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK)

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent - driver on time both ways and a quick trip; his English was pretty good. He had a big, clean Buick, one of the only non-smoking vehicles in China that actually doesn't smell of cigarettes... My return flights consisted of a domestic to Shanghai then separate connection on to Sydney; the driver knew there was a (well hidden) counter away from the usual check-in counters where they could check my bags all the way through as well as issue the two boarding passes I needed; the driver did all the talking, I just stood by and watched! . This worked perfectly so I didn't have to check in for the international leg at Shanghai. He saw me through to the passport control check point - great service.

5-Day Morocco Tour: Casablanca, Marrakech, Meknes, Fez and Rabat

Costa del Sol, Spain

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

My Review
Took us to the most expensive placesshops in Morocco, could have given much more advice about where to shop, eat etc. Some very poor hotels, definitely did not warrant their star rating.
