Awesome guide and no stress (and no shopping) = good tour
, Aug 2019
The day before I got contacted by Sandy (administrator) and Christina (our tour guide) to organize the details. The communication was smooth and easy - even without wechat. Christina took us to the summer palace first in the morning (different to the initial description on the Website but with the hot weather and main season the better arrangement). She speaks very good english and knows a lot of stories about the summer palace and also about the forbidden city - much more than is written in the information-signs on site. She is a very good manager too - weather it comes to smoothly and quickly getting into a boat in the summer palace or to get into the forbidden city without much hustle. (during high season that is a task worth mentioning as many, many other people are there :-) ) She even helped us organizing some stuff outside the tour. We ate at a local restaurant. We could say yes or no to the place and choose our meal from the menue freely (maybe because we were a small group). It was very good. (So not forced to a certain restaurant or certain meal as we feared before). We then went to the forbidden city. We stayed inside the palace pretty exactely the 3 promised hours and got a lot of explanations, time to take pictures and even walked to the left and right corridors a bit. We never felt pushed (as we had heared from other tours from fellow travellers - of course the guide has to tell the people to move on at some points) and Christina answered patiently and knowingly every question that occured. The tour ended at the North Gate and we afterwards were able to climb up the pagoda in the park opposite to have a view over the forbidden city. If you have time to do heavens temple and tianmen square on a second day but have no time (or don't want to) to do full day tours and want not just to rush through the forbidden city and summer palace without having time to actually enjoy it (because you are forced to a market inbetween) this is a very good choice of tour. Absolutely no forced shopping here! If you are lucky, you get Christina as your guide.
