Amazing views at the Summer Palace, impressive architecture at the Lama Temple, and cute, cuddly panda bears made for a fantastic tour. Our guide, Cynthia, was very energetic and excited about giving us a glimpse into China's long history. We enjoyed every moment of the tour and the time that we got to spend with Cynthia!
Our tour guide was excellent. On time to pick us up at the hotel and was very knowledgable and very pleasant.
A great Beijing triple-play! These places and experiences are not to be missed. Our guide, Jason, and our driver were both very professional, courteous and efficient in their duties. We couldn't have asked for a better day tour.
Our guide Li was very imformative, polite and kind. Good English speaker. Chinese lunch was average, not so good as lunch in Jade factory on other tours. Very recomended !
Jason was excellent and knowledgeable guide. Summer Palace was beautifully cool. One small observation - would have enjoyed slightly more time here and less time in government pearl, tea and chinese medicine estblishments.
Great day tour. The guide Jason was fantastic with lots of great information and keen to answer any questions. Along with the Zoo, Summer Palace and Lama Temple we also went to a pearl shop which had a lot a beautiful items for sale at a reasonable price, and also to the silk factory. We weren't rushed at any time. Jason also assisted in engaging the locals, eg where artists were practicing dishu at the Summer Palace. Pick up and drop off times were as agreed. Lunch was at a local restaurant and there was plenty to eat.
Jason was a wonderful guide. His English was fantastic and his attention to detail terrific. The weather in the morning was very wet but this did not spoil the tour at all. The visit to the Panda Garden was great; we saw a variety of ages of panda enjoying their bamboo breakfast! Off then to the Summer Palace where Jason was encyclopedic about the place, the history and the people - first class! Lunch was OK The Lama Temple was spectacular and an experience I will always remember. The booked itinerary did not mention the tea tasting but this was fun and its addition did not make me feel I had missed time elsewhere. I would thoroughly and warmly recommend Jason as a guide and this tour, too. I have booked tours through the company before in other cities and Viator have lived up to their usual high standards. Many thanks
Excellent tour guide, far more interesting than we expected, very personalized experience.
Fantastic tour. Guide excellent and knowledgeable. Great opportunity to see what I have previously only heard about and didn't disappoint. Also good lunch destination. Great day tour.
We took our 7 year old on his first trip overseas and couldn't have chosen a better tour company! We loved our tour guides and our son had a trip he will never forget!
Loved this trip. Guide was brilliant and tour was great value for money. Have already recommended this to friends who may travel to Beijing in the future. Content of trip was very good as was the lunch provided. Guide had lots of knowledge, cheery and friendly.
