This was a great tour with Sharon who met with me promptly at my hotel. Since it was a private tour I was able to take iOS in each location without hindrances, except for the crowds of course. Caution: Tiananmen Square/ Forbidden city gets very inundated with locals and tourists making it difficult at times to take photos. I most enjoyed the hike up to Behai park to look down over the Fobidden City. Although it was very hazy, the view was captivating.
The Lama temple was a great part of this tour for me and although photos inside were profited, it is simply beautiful, not to mention peaceful. The bamboo walkway leading in was simply beautiful.
On the visit to the hunting, I took a rickshaw ride no choice really which was an addition 30 CNY. It was great experience. Alvin all the tour covered a lot of grounds. I think it should have included a lunch stop because otherwise its a rush in the end to finish up which was my experience. I finished almost two hours early even with a visit to the tea house a. Silk factory so lunch would have still allowed us to cover everything on the agenda.

Good time with our private guide. She spoke English well and did a good job. Our personal driver was good at getting around the traffic. You do a lot of walking so take comfortable shoes. The view looking down to the Forbidden City is the best. Lunch was at a restaurant. Plenty of food.
