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
very busy day started at the wall was very busy, then visited Tiananmen square and Forbidden City was brilliant so much history
The guide was very friendly, professional and arrived on time. Everything was very interesting-a bit too commercial
We booked this tour and were a little nervous about what to expect. We had an English speaking national (Jacky) and he was simply brilliant. He was a very proud Chinese man and gave us a complete run down of the history of the areas we visited. We were so impressed we booked him for a second day to do a different tour. Thanks again Jacky. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone considering it
I was given a private tour (I was the only person who booked the tour for this day). My tour guide was excellent. She answered all my questions and was very informative. She's a native Chinese person who lived in Beijing all her life, so she was perfect for this tour.
Was a fantastic tour, mainly cause we had a great tour guide called Thomas. He knew what he was on about. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Had a fantastic experience/tour with the tour operators in China who i booked through Viator. Would certainly use Viator again for future holidays, tour guides in Beijing were more than helpful and all spoke very good English,
