The Classic Full Day Beijing City Tour was excellent--it would be very challenging to get a good perspective in the absence of this guided tour. The tour guide -Jackie was excellent--very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor and good communication skills. He provided very good background historical information and context to the significant points of interest.
The bus driver also did a skillful job of navigating the competitive Beijing traffic.
Great Tours and Great Tour Guide he went out of his way to make sure we saw everything. Great story teller.
My tour guide Cherry is very knowledgeable. I particularly like Temple of Heaven. Forbidden City is very pretty too.
It was a long day, but this is the best way to see the main sights of Beijing in one day. The tour coordinates ticket admission at each site, which in itself was worth the price of the tour.
Victoria was our tour guide, and she did a fantastic job.
This was a great tour and a fantastic way to see the top sites in Beijing that are usually very busy and difficult to move around. Jackie was a very informative tour guide and there photograph opportunities that I don't think were available with the other tours running that day around the Forbidden City in particular. Highly recommend!
This was a fantastic day from start to finish would recommend this
A lot of walking so carry water and a hat.
Restaurant was very nice and so was the food
If you get Jacki male he is of a very high standard and great to be around
This was a fantastic experience. The scenery was amazing and the transportation to and from the sites was exceptional. The thing that really made this tour a forever lasting memory was our Guide Jackie. He was a fantastic guide, and virtually a walking encyclopedia concerning China's vast history. He explained all the details of every site in excellent English. He was very humorous, very personable and just a guy you enjoyed spending a day with. If you go to some place and leave that place with a desire to return and experience it again you have likely had a great time and that is the way we feel about this tour and our guide Jackie Excellent tour.
A compact trip that brought us to see all the must see and must do of Beijing. Our guide was friendly, animated, although we did have a bit of difficulty understanding her when she spoke too fast at times. The bus was clean and comfortable.
Beautiful sights and amazing tour guide! Our guide Jackie did everything he could to try and explain as much as he could about the history of each place we visited and as he pointed out the significance of these places the sights became even more fascinating. He was also very enthusiastic about taking pictures which was really helpful and kind of him. There is a lot of walking involved in the tour so if there is some way for him to incorporate more sitting when he is explaining that would be most helpful. He gets a little carried away with trying to show as much as possible but if you want extra time at any place, you just have to ask and he is very accommodating.
The guide was very knowledgeable and imparted various historical facts. Made the tour fun
and relevant. I hated to see it end. Would Highly recommend the tour and the guide.
Our guide, Jacky, was very enthusiastic and proud of his Chinese history. As well as the listed places to visit we also went to a silk factory genuine silk and a pearl market. we also had a plentiful Chinese lunch. All these places were very interesting and well worth seeing. There were just 9 people on this tour which made it very personal.
An excellent tour despite the early start! Our guide, William, was helpful, informative and fun to be with. We were a group of 3 and the only ones on the tour so he had plenty of time to give us lots of information about the places we visited. He spoke excellent English and willingly took lots of photos of us so we have memories of our trip. I thoroughly recommend this tour as a great way to see the major sights in Beijing.
Guide was excellent, the sites did not deliver but great way to see the city quickly.
Great tour. Mr. Li in an excellent guide. He knows all it is about Beijing and the excellent places included in this one really busy day! I would recommend not to stop on the shops, there is plenty of opportunities to buy at the pearl market and other places. The tour would be dedicated specifically to visit historic places. I totally recommend the tour and Mr. Li. It was a great experience!!
I ended up doing 3 tours while in Beijing and this was by far my favorite. The stories the tour guide gave were just amazing and often hilarious and I'll be recounting many of them once I return home. The stories really make the sites come alive. I also enjoyed getting to see how silk is made and learn about fresh water pearl making.
Really enjoyable day, Jackie was an excellent tour guide with a lot of knowledge.
Amazing! Our tour guide Jacky was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and his English was very easy to understand. The history of the forbidden city, temple of heaven and the summer place are something you should for sure see in Beijing.
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.
Jason was the best!! He was very informative and we had plenty of time at each location. I highly recommend this tour!!
Great day out. Beautiful blue sky, crisp morning, informative guide. Stop at a tea shop to warm up!!!
