Great tour, specially when you have a short stay in the city
Cheryl was my guide for this tour. She was engaging and knowledgeable. She was also great at keeping her group together and getting us ahead when possible. Having gone to the Fobidden city, the day prior, I initially thought I wouldnt want to see it again but Cheryl used the side walkways and corridors to show us the site. This made for better pictures and less interruption. She also gave great advise on how to improve your photos..She always offered to take photos of you at the various sites. Cheryl kept a tight schedule and even when I had a mishap at the Temple of Heaven I was unable to regain entry to the courtyard all hampered by the language barrier she made sure that I was comfortable.. At the Summer palace we opted to utilize the boats at an additional cost and that was a great addition.
It was a lovely day which culminated with shopping for pearls and silk. A lovely day with a great guide
Tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. Made the experience very worthwhile. Felt that we were going back in time and experiencing life in the Forbidden City. Well done! Ask why the lions at the entrance of the Emperors Palace have floppy ears pointing down?
Cynthia was a well informed and really helpful guide. She took lots of photos of us and was great at explaining things.
We had a great experience. The other people who were supposed to be with us cancelled so it was basically a private tour. Our guide was very informative and spoke great English. Very convenient with hotel pick-up and drop-off, avoid all lines and makes the entire experience awesome and easy. Highly recommend and great value!
Don't forget to bring your passport! Covered a lot within a small group. Usual souvenir stops and western style Chinese food.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, William! We had a fabulous day with our guide and driver more like a personal chauffeur, and we covered the main parts of Beijing with a few additions thrown in along the way. William's English is superb and he described the history of the sites and the wider China with such eloquence that it helped us to understand the people and the country, setting up the rest of our trip perfectly. Beijing is a truly amazing city but it's jewels were brought to life by William. By the end of the day we felt as though we'd made a true friend in William and a life-long admiration for Beijing. If there were six stars, we'd still give it top marks! Thank you William.
Lady in Pink United States of ...
Well worth seeing for the price. We were fortunate enough to have William as a guide who maneuvered us through thousands of Chinese who were paying their respects to Chairman Mao's mausoleum. It would be nice to see as many US Americans visit their historical sights and better understand where the came from and where we are today. William was informative, patient and answered all our questions. There were only 7 passengers, the driver and our guide on a minibus, so it was comfortable and we could spend one on one time with the guide. The driver was amazing as he managed our way thru the humungous traffic jams in Beijing. Would high recommend this tour.
This day trip was exactly as I expected and as advertised. Our guide Jacky was informative and comical making the event even more fun.
