This tour was amazing. Try to go on a weekday to avoid the crowds at Badaling. Ask for an early start to be the first in the Forbidden City.
Fantastic tour when you do not have much time in Beijing. Tour guide Michael was very informative.
My tour guide for this tour was Mr. Li. Mr. Li was really good. He did such a great job telling us about the places we visited and stories about Chinese history. I highly recommend him and this tour.
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. It was a real pleasure spending the day with him.
It was a good tour, and overall I'm happy that we got it! We did it for multiple reasons:
- I don't like multiple day tours, so having a one day full tour was perfect
- Getting to the Great Wall from Beijing is not easy. So having an air conditioned bus pick you up from the hotel is pretty convenient
- Entrance/tickets are included, so you can skip the line
- Our tour guide Jackie Li was informative and provided history and insight we would not discover on our own
this is a great way to see the "most" important sights in beijing (particularly if you have little time). the guide is very knowledgeable and provides detailed stories about the different places. he is also funny. :)
Excellent service, the tour guide was very friendly and gave us a lot of information. Wonderful day!
Absolutely engaging full day-guide explained what we needed to get from tour-3 important points - Old Beijing, New Beijing, Axion
He chatted the entire tour- very informative and a joy as we went thru all the sights including ricksaw, Drum Tower, Great Wall
highly recommend but w/an engaging and delightful guide as JASON
Another great tour with Jackie Lee. Good narratives of present and past.
My tour with Mr. Jimmy Li was an excellent 1 day tour. I appreciate that I was able to visit all three venues the same day-Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City and the Great Wall. There were five other persons on this tour and it was a good group. Mr Li did a great lecture on each venue as well as answering questions. Our Chinese lunch was delicious and the jade and silk demonstrations were good. I would highly recommend this tour if you have only 1 day to spend in Beijing. The time at the Great Wall was adaquate as was the other venues. The transportation and driver was good as well. Thanks for the good communications on the meeting place and pick up time. Arrived back at my hotel on time.
I got exactly what I wanted. Surprisingly I was the only person on the tour. Mr. Li, the tour guide, was great. He is really knowledgeable and friendly. If you are in Beijing for a day or so, this is the best choice. Mr. Li gave me lots of interesting info, which I would never known about it if I was on my own. The way he scheduled it was great. I was a bit worried about it, but he is an expert and after all he knows better than us where to go first and then..... I absolutely loved it. Just relax and get the tour :)
Great use of time and our tour guide (Jacky Lee) was a super star. If you are going to climb to the top of the Great Wall, be sure to stretch and eat a couple of bananas first. It puts any stair climbing machine to shame.
Nothing we didn't like about it. We were the only ones on the tour that day so had a personalised tour which was great, Many extra attractions/visits we didn't know were included which was awesome. Cherry our tour guide had awesome local knowledge and a incredible knowledge of the history everywhere. Definately recommend it
