Hong Kong Pink Dolphin Watching Cruise

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Excellent trip. We saw three dolphins (2 pink adults and 1 grey youngster). The tour guides were committed to publicising the plight of these endangered dolphins.

Great Wall of China at Badaling and Ming Tombs Day Tour from Beijing

Beijing, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
An early start meant we reached the Great Wall before the tourist rush and walking up the right hand steps we saw both the reconstructed and some of the original wall. Visit to the MIng Tomb was also fascinating. The trip to the Jade factory was really a waste of time. Lunch was in a government department store and was plentiful but not enjoyable. Again time in the store was not necessary. Overall though we enjoyed it and our guide was very knowledgeable.

Beijing Acrobatic Show and Peking Duck Banquet Night Tour

Beijing, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The acrobatic show was really good and we can recommend it highly. The Peking Duck banquet consisted of a number of 'common' dishes and then the duck. It was ok but perhaps not quite what we were expecting from the write ups.

Private Custom Tour: Beijing in One Day

Beijing, China

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
The tour guide did not turn up on the appointed morning but a call to the company resulted in a replacement appearing an hour later. I never found out what happened to the first guide. The replacement tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and we went to the locations I requested. However on this tour you have to pay your own taxi fares and entrance fees so it works out a lot more expensive than taking the group tours. For lunch I chose to go to a noodle restaurant which was cheap and filling. Beware suggestions of visiting 'government' tea houses and so on! The souvenirs on sale are much more expensive than available elsewhere although the tea tasting itself was ok!

Hong Kong Private Arrival Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
After a long and uncomfortable flight this private transfer to our hotel was a luxury well worth paying for. Friendly welcome, immediate transfer to an air-conditioned car, and direct drive to our hotel. It is far more expensive than the train or the local taxi firm though so I would recommend just booking a one way transfer. (We got a local taxi back to the airport but the Airport Express is even cheaper. The Hong Kong tourist board website also had good information about getting to and from the airport.)
