overall the tour is good, but I think it is too much to see and not enough time.
We found ourselves often running and not taking the time to take it all in several times which is not great as there's a lot to see and enjoy.
Overall the guides have a lot of knowledge but I didn't like being rushed most of the time, or having them find excuses for not doing something or going somewhere.
On both days both of the guides tried stopping us from doing all the things stated on the tour, such as the boat on the summer palace or the visit to the Jigsaw park.
Also, on my second day I had to take a taxi to meet the tour as apparently my hotel was out of their way, which I was very annoyed by, as I got a tour specifically because I wanted everything to be organized for me.
in any case, it is a good way to see the most important bits if you don't have a lot of time, but you will be super tired after both days.
So if you don't have enough time, I would recommend the tour, if you do, I would take it easy to enjoy things properly.
It was such a great experience, enjoyed every bit of it. Our tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, helpful, fun and very informative lady. We loved how everything plan and executed, it covered all the must-see sites in Beijing. Exceeded our expectations, especially the acrobat show performance, totally worth it.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Beijing for the first time.
This is the right tour if you have limited time in Beijing, it was a terrific tour! It covered all the important sights. There was right amount of time spent at each attraction and we never felt rushed or bored. The guide was very knowledgeable and willing to answer to all the questions asked. Highly recommend!
It is the best tour we had in Beijing, all the sights were excellent. We had 5 people in the group, the van was big enough, very comfortable. And we were able to only choose the silk presentation, it went very well, was easy to understand, and to see all the silkworms and pupas. At the end, we didn't feel any hard selling, thanks to Keith, he helped a lot for bargain as well. Overall, best 2 days in Beijing, worth every penny, would like to take the tour again.
Great tour, great value, just couldn't expect more! We picked up a wrong day to visit Beijing, there were so packed in all attractions, but our guide still made the days pefect. And it was only our family in the group, made it even more pefect:- The acrobat show was so stunning, so glad we added the show to our trip, loved its performance and the motorcycles in cage!
I would highly recommended this tour, it was a real small group tour and the guide was so nice.
Been few tours in China, and this was by far the best tour. All the things been taken care of, the guide Keith really helped a lot during these two days. The tour included almost all the things we need to do in Beijing, it is best choice if you only have 2 days and want to see all the main arractions, plus some shoppings.
So, highly recommended, and, Keith, you are the best!
We were lucky to pick this tour as it was a new tour in viator and there were only 2 of us in the group, we thought it was a bus tour considering the price, but turned out to be a private tour in private car:
The tour was fantastic, we spend as much time as we wanted on the Mutianyu part of Great Wall, the view was breathtaking!! And you definitely should try the toboggan down! We altered shopping stop on first day, instead of the Jade Factory, we are more interested in Chinese medicine, the guide also the driver, Keith, led us to a Chinese Medicine Museum in the embassy area, learned a lot about the herbs and its history. Keith was a very nice guy, took a good care of us. He spoke English clearly and shared lots of historical information at each of the sites. Oh, the Chinese lunch near the Wall was great! Loved it. The sights of Summer Palace was Stunning, we came in the right season for it. Lucky us.
On day 2, we were picked up from hotel and walked about 20mins from the parking lot to the Tiananmen Square. So, meet at the underground station might be a better option. The Forbidden City was huge, Keith gave lots of information and stories, some of them were very interesting. We tried dumpling banquet for lunch, was just amazing! The shopping stop is the real Hongqiao Pearl Market, a large shopping mall with all the Chinese souvenirs, we bought some bags, sunglasses, etc. Really cheap!!
To sum up, it was a fantastic tour! Excellent guide and money well spent!! Really enjoy the tour, highly recommended!!!
