Our tour guide, Helen Zhang, took us through an amazing experience. Her immense knowledge of both the history and the culture of the Forbidden City really gave us an insight into the significance of this majestic estate. The 72-hectare area is overwhelming at first but Helen's pace and ability to dodge the busy crowds really made a difference. We felt much more enriched with information as we left the Forbidden City than we otherwise would have and it's all thanks to Helen! After this, she continued to help us navigate through Beijing via WhatsApp, even giving us hand written directions in both English/Chinese to help us get to the Great Wall 2 days later. It's been nearly a week since our visit to the Forbidden City and meeting Helen but we still keep in touch via WeChat. She was absolutely amazing and highly recommend her service!

Tour was fantastic, we walked all over the Forbidden City and saw many unique items we would never have found on our own. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made the trip extremely entertaining and informative. Lunch was great and enjoyed in a unique atmosphere right in the center of the palace.I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants an in-depth visit to a large portion of the Forbidden City.

Helen was an amazing guide. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Forbidden City and made the tour interesting for all of us including the kids. She was very good at making sure we saw all the important buildings. The Forbidden City is HUGE so you cannot possibly see it all in one day but with Helen, we felt we saw quite enough of it to be completely satisfied. Lunch at the Ice House was very good as well with many meal options to choose from. Overall this was a great all day tour that I would recommend for all ages. Our group consisted of 2 adults, 2 kids ages 9 and 12 and 2 grandparents!
