Beijing Classic Full-Day Tour including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great way to see the most important sites in Beijing in one day! We started nice and early so we beat the crowds to Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions about the locations we visited, Beijing and Chinese culture. I was not too fond of the visits to the silk factory and pearl shop as they felt like tourist traps. The Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace were also fantastic and we were lucky enough to have great weather the day of the visit. Since it was before peak tourist season there were only 4 of us on the tour. Overall a lovely day in Beijing- I especially recommend it if you are short on time and want to get the most out of your time in the city.

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

Beijing, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great day! There were only two of us on the tour so we were able to visit a different section of the Great Wall. It was a beautiful sunny day so we got lots of great photos. The Ming Tombs were also great! The only things I was not expecting was the almost tourist trap-type visits to the jade factory and tea shop. These were not educational visits, but rather store visits with a bit of demonstration and we were pressured a bit to buy their overpriced items. We had a great guide who was able to answer all of our questions. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like to see the Great Wall but is a bit short on time in Beijing.

This tour was very well organized and our guide Carlos relayed a plethora of information about both Sachsenhausen and Berlin that I would not have learned otherwise.

Potsdam Half-Day Trip from Berlin

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I was throughly disappointed with this tour. The bus driver was rude and did not inform us of all the stops we could have gotten off at near the palaces so we all had to get off at the last stop. This was not a half day trip, but a full day trip. I signed up for the earlier pickup location thinking that I would have more time in Potsdam, but we spent almost an hour on the bus going to second pickup location. Although Potsdam was beautiful, this tour and the way it was arranged was disappointing, especially taking public transportation is a option for getting to Potsdam.

This tour was fantastic! Alex was an amazing guide and took us to three markets, two of which I would not have known about without the help of a Berliner! The balance between free time and help from our guide was perfect.
