very efficient. driver met me in the arrivals hall holding a sign with my name. only small niggle was that English speaking guide wasn't there as i'd wanted to ask questions (they did call me on phone). but driver was very courteous and efficient.
More expensive than a taxi but excellent in terms of the experience. My driver met me at the arrivals hall after customs and whisked me off to the underground carpark to his very clean and comfortable car. He arranged to pick me up 6 days later and was on time. We got caught in a traffic snarl, but he had left more than enough time and so I was at the airport comfortably. I noticed that the guests at my hotel had to wait quite a long time for both taxis and the shuttle bus, and some were turned away repeatedly from the bus as it was too small. I didn't have any of these worries by using this service. Worth it even if it is twice as expensive as a cab.
The driver was waiting for me as I exited customs at Beijing Airport. He spoke perfect English and signed me up for 2 day trips the following 2 days. The only problem was that the driver who picked me up at the hotel and drove me to the airport did not speak any English and did not drop me off in front of the terminal. He parked his vehicle and proceeded to walk me through the parking lot and terminal building to the ticket counter. I was unable to communicate with him why we were doing this. I would have preferred to be dropped off in front of the terminal building. The walk would have definitely been shorter. I paid for an English speaking driver and was not supplied with one. I think next trip I will take a cab to and from the airport.
Good service even if the driver was trying too hard to be funny.
Smooth airport pickup as well as timely hotel pickup. Driver very friendly and gave a short city introduction while going from the airport. Not full 4 stars as it was a little too pricy compared to normal transport costs in China.
Very friendly and polite service! Understood exactly what I was saying! Straight to hotel, no problems, apart from the Beijing traffic but expected in major city! Overall good experience!
Great way to get from the airport to city. My flight was delayed a couple of hours and I wasn't too sure what would happen on arrival but my driver was there waiting for me at 1.30am in the morning! The return was organised and went without a hitch, great value and great service.
Everything was good, the car was there on time, and there were no problems.
It is so refreshing to be able to get off a plane and not worry about having to navigate yourself out of the airport, find public transport, suffer a long uncomfortable ride and then search for your hotel. The transfer was decently priced and I would definitely recommend it.
We requested a driver to/from Beijing Intl airport to our hotel in the Hutong. Your website promised an English speaking driver. This man spoke absolutely NO English. However, he was at the airport on time and waiting for us when we got through customs. He also drove us right to the front door of the hotel (which most do not - - - they drop you at the intersection of the roads), and he came in and spoke with the hotel clerk to make sure everyone was on the same page about the return trip to the airport the next day. They were waiting in the lobby when we came down, and dropped us off at terminal 3. Bravo!
The quality of the vehicle and staff were excellant. During my trip we had prearranged airport transfers in Bangkok, Phuket, and Beijing with the Beijing pick up was easily being the best. We accidentally left a book in the car during our arrival pickup and were given the book back during our departure pickup. Can't say enough good things about the outstanding service we received.
Found out upon arrival that the pick up cost was excessive compared to other options available. Next time we'll do a little more research before booking with Viator. Would have preferred if the available options included one way transportation.
