This tour was amazing!

Super Tour. I saw all the main historical tourist attractions in Bejing in one day. Annie, my tour guide was so sweet. It was absolutely freezing in Bejing but that didn't stop us. Annie had great English and was very knowledgeable, informative and a really nice person to spend the day with in Shanghai. She also had no problem taking photos for me. Having a driver take us from place to place was a big help. I'd strongly recommend this to anyone who only has a short time in Bejing and wants to see the main historiacal tourist attractions.

Picked up at our hotel on time by our tour guide Jackie Li, a very informative and knowledgeable person indeed. Our visit to the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace was great, not to be missed if you visit China. The typical Chinese lunch was excellent, sampled a lot of different dishes. A visit to a Silk and Pearl factory / shop was also included in the tour as well as having traditional Chinese tea. I recommend the tour. A big thank you to our tour guide Jackie, by the way, nice photos Jackie.

We covered a lot of territory. Yes, we had a shopping excursion to the Silk Factory and Pearl Factory. At least the silk location was worth it - the pearls not so much. William our guide was EXCELLENT. He was engaging and informative. He even took the time to write in Mandarin recommendations for other places to go that we could use with taxi drivers. This was a fun day. :

Amazing tour. Just us in a private car with tour guide and driver as only ones booked for that day. Michael the tour guide was so lovely and very knowledgeable. A lot crammed into one day but well worth it. Definitely value for money.

Excellent full day tour. With the fact of large crowds and busy traffic in Beijing this was a tour which took the hassle out of transport, and navigation of major sites. Thoroughly loved seeing the great city sites in Beijing with a delightful guide who provided informative and delightful commentary and interaction to tour participants. Lunch was lovely and we enjoyed the shopping stops which complimented the major tourist sites. Great day in Beijing!
