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!
