It was amazing. We went to the wall and experienced different sites. Since it was not tourist season aswell, it was not packed. Highly recommended. Its a nice way to experience Beijing when you are travelling by yourself

Exceptional Day Tour!
I was expecting to be in a mini-van but got picked up at the Marriott City Wall Hotel by the tour guide,Michael, and his driver,Xie, in a stylish sedan.Thus, I was given a private tour for the entire day 20th October,2017.
The highlights were:
1. Tiananmen Square and this coincided with the 5 yearly Congress, so the decoration of the Square was striking.The friendliness of the thousands of Chinese tourists was memorable.
2.The Forbidden City:a very long walk through the entire historical site:perfectly preserved and perfectly clean.
3.The Great Wall: involved a long drive on a beautiful expressway.Xie's driving was exceptional.I was given free time to explore and walk the Great Wall.The preservation,the width and the height of the Wall is impressive.Once again,the friendliness of the Chinese tourists was highly memorable.

On the Tour we visited a Jade Engraving factory, a Silk factory and a Chinese Tea House.At each of these there was an expectation to buy product:this is my only negative comment.However, these visits ensured the cultural experience was complete.

The Tour lasted almost 11 hours and the treatment I received from Michael and Xie made the Tour perfect: the knowledge they shared,their manner and their effort to make the day memorable.

This Day Tour stands out compared to others I have done in other major cities.My impression of Beijing was thoroughly enriched: this is a City that is vibrant:modern,clean and organised for the huge population who live there.

Noteworthy was the price charged by Viator: much less than similar tours that I had read about,prior to making a decision on which one to choose.

The tour was excellent. Our guide was Cynthia and she was amazing. She was full of information and took us through everything and explained the history of it and how it got to where it is now. We went to a silk factory, a jade factory, and a tea ceremony. We also had a great lunch. She explained some of the Chinese symbols to us between visits. I definitely recommend her and the tour. My two friends were also more than happy with the experience

The Great Wall is a must do, it's amazing when you get on top and see the wall around you. Our tour guide Mr. Jacquie Lee was very knowledgable, friendly and happy to show us around. Arquitecture in the Forbidden City is impressive.

I was in China on business, and only had one day to spend in Beijing, so I wanted to see as much as possilbe. The Beijing Essential Full-Day perfectly meet my needs. Our guide Jackie was very knowledgable of the history and stories about each site we visited. He kept the group moving to ensure we didn't linger too long at any particular site. Jackie's English was very good and made the trip very interesting. One thing to remember on this tour is that it will make for a very long day, so if you tend to move at a slower pace, a shorter tour may be more well suited for you. However, if you have just one day to see the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, and Tiananment Square, this tour is perfect.

The tour was well done and very thought out. We were a group of four and stayed at an airbnb. The company was very accommodating and picked us up from our location. This was most helpful as we had only been in Beijing for the night so hadn't really had time to learn the area. We were picked up promptly at 7:45am to begin our tour. Our guide and driver were exceptionally professional. Mike, the tour guide, was super knowledgeable and professional. He answered any and all questions we posed.

Every location was high on the list of places to visit during my trip and this tour hit all locations and more. With plenty of time to enjoy and take in the history and beauty. I would highly recommend this tour to friends and family.

The tour was awesome. Jacki male was our guide and he was more than happy to tell us about everything! It was extremely informative. The tour ran a little long but that was perfectly fine because we went to Beijing just to take it. The food provided on the tour was also amazing! I highly recommend this tour!

William is an excellent tour guide -- he was knowledgable, flexible in terms of scheduling, and well-versed in English. He intrepidly led us up the Great Wall in -20 C temperature and wind chill as well as around Tiananmen and the Forbidden City. The trip was a great value in my opinion.

For the price this is a good value tour that provides ample time at the Great Wall and decent walk through the Forbidden City. The booking process, and follow up communication was excellent and re-assuring given I made late changes. The guide, Victoria, was polite and enthusiastic with good English. Bus was clean and efficient picking me up on time from the hotel. The stop overs at a Jade and Silk factory were a little annoying but given they were timed for a useful stop, not overly troublesome. Overall excellent value.

Our tour was excellent. Our guide Jackie did an amazing job. The lunch was probably the best meal we had while in Beijing. I overall will rate this as a 5 star tour

First time in Beijing. This was a great tour to go on if you have a full day. Our guide Michael was amazing. Really knowledgeable and friendly. Amazing sights. Also visited silk, jade and tea factories. Good lunch provided. Downside was time travelling to The Great Wall long and the bus was too cold!
