The acrobat show was terrific. We were once again the only 2 on this tour. The only downside to this tour is that when we got to the theatre there were many tours already there and our seats were not allocated. Therefore we were squeezed in amongst other tourists- they moved some people so we could sit together. Would have thought that prebooking a show would have meant reserved seating. Our seats were the second to last row to the back. We were not late as you are picked up so early - we arrived 35 minutes before the start of the show. The show was fantastic - well worth seeing. The duck dinner was excellent. The restaurant was on the edge of a lake. It included other dishes as well as the duck. A cook stands near your table and slices the duck in front of you. There was plenty of food so much so that we could not eat it all.

The Acrobatic show was fantastic... the banquet was not... just skip the dinner, you won't be missing much!

The acrobatic show was good but it was not sensational. I am sure there are better shows in Beijing. The Peking Duck was average and was not cut at the table.

It was cold. Cold at the theatre where we saw the acrobat-show, and even colder at the restaurant where we had the peking duck. We had to sit with the winterjackets on. And the toilets, they were freezing cold.
But the food was very tasty.

Unfortunately I was the only person on this tour which made it a bit lonely as the guide does not stay with you. The show was amazing but the food mediocre.

Not to my expectation. The Acrobatic show was ok, but not great. The "Peking Duck Banquet" was a lot of other food like chicken, beef, vegies etc. and towards the end some Duck Skin rolled in the thin pan cakes. Where did the meat go? We ordered some "extra" and got a small plate with the help of our guide Jason. All the tour participants expected a Peking Duck dinner - nothing else.

Duck was just okay and had very little in the way of presentation value. The Acrobatic show was more circus-like (i.e. motorcycles in a cage/sphere) then a true demonstration of acrobtic talent. Skip this show in Beijing and catch the acrobatic show in Shanghai if you can.

The acrobatic show was wonderful and highly recommended. However, the Peking Duck dinner was not great. All the dishes served - fried rice and Peking duck were greasy. The so-called beef dish tasted more of tofu instead of beef. The beef soup was nasty, more of broth and cabbage. Did not enjoy the dinner at all.

We were picked up from our hotel on time, the driver was very good, the tour guide (a young lady) was very pleasant. The theatre we were taken to was a dump, broken seats and very dirty floors but the Acrobatic show was fantastic, we were met at the exit to our level by the tour guide after the show, who ushered us downstairs to the van. We then drove to the restaurant for our Peking Duck dinner, very rushed, all meals cold, duck very basic and tasteless. All the meals came out together and at one time they bought out 2 plates but because there was no room on the table they took 1 dish away (looked like sates I think) and it never reappeared. We were asked by the tour guide if we enjoyed the meal and when we complained about the meals being cold she spoke to a lady employee who apologised? Very disappointed!

Not happy with the dinner! It was cold, greasy and seemed to be unclean. Was misinformed that the dinner and show were not together. Tour guide was not with driver due to traffic and the driver could not speak English. Overall it was terrible and not up to the quality of previous Viator tours.
