Beijing Essential Full-Day Tour including Great Wall at Badaling, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square

Beijing, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

There were supposed to be 5 people on this tour but 3 canceled so it ended up being just my husband and me! Our guide Tony spoke English fluently and was very knowledgeable! We didn't end up going to Badaling because it was a Sunday and a lot of people would be there so we went to a quieter part of the Great Wall instead although it was steeper to climb. We were given a choice and chose this one, the right choice I think but there was still quite a lot of people there! Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square were also great places to visit but be warned as there is about 4km worth of walking on this part. If you tire easily, especially after climbing the Great Wall, you might want to think about saving this visit for another day. We visited a jade, silk and cloisonne gallery which was interesting. No pressure to buy at all but we did grab some nice souvenirs!

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

My Review

Our guide Jackie was very patient, informative and funny! It was a great itinerary that allowed us to see so many things in one day so this tour is a must if you don't have much time in Beijing. You can't escape the crowds in Beijing anywhere you go though, the Palace had 47,000 visitors the day we visited! Pandas were just adorable.

My Review

Very efficient reservation system but you really do have to call them early otherwise you won't get the tour time you want. Tour itself was okay. Interesting to see the studios.

Schonbrunn Palace Evening: Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We took the tour beforehand but we went back to the hotel first because there was 1.5 hours between when the palace closed and dinner started. Food was a nice 3-course meal of typical Austrian food. We skipped coffee so we could head straight to the concert hall. Definitely worth paying extra for A Reserve tickets. We got really lucky with the seats as we were in the front row of the A section and there were only 2 rows of VIP seating in front of us which were only occupied by 4 people! It is free seating according to your category so it pays to be there early. The music was great and the musicians, singers and dancers entertaining. But don't buy a souvenir there. Later on I found the same stuff at souvenir shops in town at half the price!

Budapest Day Trip from Vienna

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The hotel pick-up was right on time and the big bus we travelled to Budapest was very nice and new. No toilets though but that was ok as the trip was only about 3 hours each way. Budapest was an interesting city. We paid extra for lunch which was delicious and then continued with a walking tour with a little old but adorable Hungarian lady! We had 2 hours of free time which was enough to walk around the city centre but not if you wanted to go into museums or see other things further away. No problems with the tour guide's English but the accent may be hard for some to understand. We got back to Vienna on time and were dropped off back at the hotel.
