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

Beijing, China

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

My Review

This tour would have been more appropriately named "Full-day shopping tour with stop by Great Wall at Mutianyu." I had anticipated possibly one stop (seems like most tours or excursions have one) but not three. We stopped for shopping at an enamel factory, a jade factory (where we had lunch) and a tea shop. As is normal in China, all three locations pushed us to buy their products. With the stops, the tour took several hours longer than planned.

On the plus side, our guide Jackie Li was very informative and the Mutianyu section of the Wall was fantastic. The location wasn't very crowded and was really nice to see. We were given two hours to tour the wall, which with the summer heat, was plenty. We also took the optional (80 RNB each) cable-car up and toboggan ride down. Both were a lot of fun.

Our tour also gave us the opportunity to drive past the 2008 Olympic venues. Overall, the tour was nice but could have used fewer shopping stops.

Singapore Zoo Night Safari Tour with optional Buffet Dinner

Singapore, Singapore

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

My Review

Staff was very friendly and food good but I would not recommend this tour. The problem was the short time available at the Night Safari after customers were driven to a point of consolidation, loaded on various busses and sent on the different tours that were available. The Safari itself was fantastic and we only wished we had more time to actually experience it. If I had it to do over again, we would have simply gone to the Safari on our own.
