Our tour guide spoke good English and she showed us around some very interesting places. Be aware though, the queue through security at the Forbidden City can be very long, and locals push their way closer to the entrance. Other than the general behaviour of the locals, this tour was fantastic, especially if you want to learn about the history of China.
Guide was ok at English, however she was quick and knew how to avoid the crowds. So shes perfect.
Lovely tour, the guide Mark was extremely friendly and joyful. He gave us plenty of details to the history and development of the different monuments. He spoke english relatively well although he had a hard time understanding some of our questions. The tour to the silk factory was not very interesting but these kind of detours are to be expected in a country like China. Overall definitely worth the money!
Excellent Tour. Our tour guide Cherry did an excellent job. She put things in context. She also helped us to make great compositions for photography including panorama shots.
For this tour, our tour guide Alice reviewed the itinerary of what we would be seeing that day. She was very knowledgeable and was captivating while giving the introduction prior to each site stop: 1 Forbidden City 2 Silk Weaving then we had a nice Chinese lunch 3 Temple of Heaven and 4 Pearl Factory. Alice was very engaging while sharing Chinese culture and ancient traditions. I would highly recommend this tour to friends and family visiting the Beijing area.
Tips: Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes for lots of walking. If possible, bring a mask as the sites become crowded and natives cough a lot without covering their mouth.
Excellent tour! My tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. I was lucky enough to have been the only person who booked this outing that day so I had a private tour. Private driver and Guide were on time and always waiting to take me to the next stop. Tour guide had extensive knowledge of the places we visited and was pleasant and informative. Only downside was that being on my own I ended up eating lunch by myself. It would have been nicer to have been able to share experiences with others, but that was not under the control of the guide.
Roy and our driver picked us up on time and delivered us safely back to our hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this tour and would highly recommend it. Roy was very knowledgeable and a very considerate guide.
Amazing trip!!! This was a dream come true..Only our guide was not right n had expected a better guide via Viator..He rushed us everywhere n did not give us time to see the historical sites well..Beijing is historical n beautiful too..Truly wish to go back again..
Great tour and our guide was great!
Fantastic tour all around! This was the quickest way to see around these places. The tour guide was awesome at taking us around, avoiding the large crowds, and very knowledge about the sites. The only thing I thought was odd is that we have to pay an extra 20 RMB to go inside the Temple of Heaven. I thought this would be covered. However, the tour guide allowed me to go inside the Temple of Heaven. It was totally worth the 20 RMB to see this temple. Also, I was the only one on the tour, and had a private car and tour guide. I got very lucky, so take for what it is worth.
