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,
The trip was great, I think it could've skipped the Silk Factory were they try to sell you all kinds of things, but overall the Guide Mr. Tom was great.
An excellent tour - our guide was very helpful and offered to take our photos at important locations. An excellent lunch was served and we visited some interesting silk and jade factories with no pressure whatsoever to buy I would recommend this tour to everyone
The tour was great. It ended up just being me and my friend going on this tour. Since we were only in Beijing for a short period we needed to see as much as we could and this trip definitely allowed us to do just that. The tour guide was great and very well knowledged. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a great experience of Beijing!
Just my luck! I was expecting a group tour but it seemed everyone else postponed so I ended up on a private tour instead. Micheal was a wonderful guide. He even helped me with my Mandarin pronunciation. Along with the jade factory, we also visited a silk factory. Micheal also suggested a different section of the Great Wall instead of Badaling because it was too crowded. Got a great workout regardless. Not only was the silk factory a bonus, but the tea house after the Great Wall was one too! I got to try some jasmine, oolong and pu'erh tea. I bought some tea, I loved it so much! If you want to see Beijing and are pinched for time, I recommend this tour.
I had one day to see Beijing at the end of a business trip. This was the perfect tour. I got to see three of the best tourist attractions Beijing has to offer. Our guide was terrific. Just wished the weather was a little better that day.
This tour was great. Our guide was fantastic. His knowledge of history and culture was great and his English was next to perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend anyone to take this tour!
The tour was excellent! We had the best guide, who shared so much about China and the history.
Very good overview of Beijing if you are here for a limited time. Our guide was excellent. Be prepared for how steep the Great Wall at Badaling is! Tea ceremony an unanticipated highlight!
Tour guide was very knowledgeable, but I would suggest if you have the time, split up this tour, it is a lot of walking for one day. It was wonderful but I think the Great Wall would be more enjoyable on a separate day! but it certainly is a must tour.
An enjoyable tour. The guide was informative and helpful, and there was a good amount of time at each site.
A must see tour. I can not understand how people go to Beijing without booking this tour! In a short time we saw alot. I have 2 teenagers and I was looking for the most comfortable but sufficient tour. I was not disappointed.I gave the tour man a big tip as his English was excellent and I felt the tour was real value for money. We will always go on similar tours.
Excellent guide and activities very personalized.
