Excellent tour. The guide, Mr. Li, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. There were only 4 of us on the tour, which made it even better. Less time at over-priced tourist shops on this tour than the Great Wall Tour, which was a relief. In fact, the stop at the silk factory was quite interesting.
This was an excellent tour of the highlights of Beijing. Very interesting and beautiful. Our excellent guide (Zoe) made the day. Her English was excellent as well as her knowledge of the history and culture.
Overall, this tour was great...the places we visited were very interesting and the guide was extremely informative. The guide, however, was very much inserting his own personal opinion about how much better China was than all other countries. I think it's great to have pride in your country but not to the degree that you are uing disparaging remarks about other countries...or the people from those countries. Again, it was a great tour and the guide very knowledgeable but I could have done without the propaganda pitch.
The absolute best way to see Beijing! Comprehensive tour that allows you to see all the main attractions in just a few hours. Our guide was great and the food delicious!
A very full day and the guide was exceptional. Lunch was fantastic good and plenty of it. Loved all the places we stopped at.
As a solo female traveller, it was great to be in a group with other American and see these amazing sights. Beijing is a massive city and it can be a challenge getting around, so being on a tour group was certainly a great choice. The sights and info and guide were great and the lunch was very good. The visits to the Jade, Silk etc factories can get old after you have gone more than ocne, but the information and intro is very interesting. Highly recommend the tour and Viator.
Excellent tour. With foreign tourists down over 80% since 2008, this tour through Viator was like a private tour for 6 + driver + English speaking guide. Guide was very informative and knowledgeable. With just 6 of us in the tour, we could ask a lot of questions to learn more of the city and culture. Lunch was excellent with lots to eat.
Contacted by guide night before tour. It happened to be private tour. Guide was speking very well English. Great knowledge about all places I have visited.
Superb day, fantastic guide an extremely personalised tour.
By far one of the best, if not the best, tours of Beijing we had. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Tour was very informative. Got to see all the sites per the itinerary. Driver was a bit of a road warrior though.
This was a perfect one day experience of Beijing. I would recommend it to anyone.
We enjoyed the tour very much and I would recommend Viator to our friends and family. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on the history of the sights that we visited and was entertaining which made it a fun day. The tour allowed us to get a lot of sightseeing into a short period of time. From the minute we were picked up at our hotel to the time we were dropped off, it was a very enjoyable day.
Loved my tour guide. This was a great tour to get you to see the major sites in one day. Would definitely recommend it! I had a private driver and a private guide all day even though I booked the group tour.
This was definitely the best tour I went on whilst in China. We had a lovely small group only 5 of us and our tour guide was excellent. He was enthusiastic, spoke extremely good English, had great knowledge and happily answered any questions we had. He also told us where to take the best photos and took many for us so me and my friend could have photos together. The lunch was delicious and there was a wide selection of food. Overall, I cannot recommend this tour enough, worth every penny!
