The Tour was nice - especially Mr. Lee who guided us from hotel to city and back-! One guy (Michael) asked for more tip - although tip is not usual in China (we gave him 20 Yuan). This was the worst thing on this tour! Because he was very unpolite! The hutongs and the Belltower were interesting to see. The tea-factory could have been left behind!!!!
The guide -another Michael- was quite nice. It was a VIP-Tour ;) Only me, the driver and Michael! First we visited the Tiananmen-Square, then the forbidden city. He arranged it very interesting. Next stop was a silk-factory. Also very interesting and they didn´t force you to buy something. Then lunch - combined with a jade-factory in the middle of nowhere! It was awful!!! I have been left alone with the most horrible food I ever had. I felt like caged in this factory! After 15 minutes I left the room with the workers through a servants` exit. Then I had to wait 15 minutes for the pick up through my guide, HORRIBLE - never would do this again. After this we went to a different place of the wall (he told me in the car - Badaling would be crowded!). In Juyongguan I climbed the wall and it was worth whole day suffering ;)! To come to a conclusion: Be sure not to visit the Jade factory and all will be fine!
