This tour was wonderful - the value for money was incredible. It was definitely a highlight of our trip. Our guide was Jackson, who spoke English and is very happy and pleasant to spend a day with. The bus was cool and comfortable. The best part was lunch in the house in the Hutong - it was very authentic and delicious. I would recommend doing this tour towards the end of your time in Beijing - the view from Jingshan Park is spectacular, and even more so if you recognize the places you are looking at. This is a definite must!!
very good but we used only 1 voucher
The tour was great, however because of the location of our hotel we had to be picked up super early AND still pick up other people. Tipping of rickshaws at the Hutong became an issue as we tipped our driver what we tipped a different driver a few days earlier. Our tour guide had another guide show us around the Hutong and i guess the extra tip they were moaning about was for the other guide.
Other than that, great experience!!
This was a good tour. I would recommend to a person who has seen all of the main attractions and is looking to see something different towards the end of their stay in Beijing. The Lama Temple is magnificent with a calm atmosphere, my favorite temple in Beijing! The Hutong tour is good and very unique allowing for dinner in a locals house which is nice. Jingshan park is also very nice.
Overall I would recommend but would prioritize the major attractions first if your trip is not very long!
wonderful trip good guide
Thoroughly enjoyed our day trip - guide was nice and friendly, also spoke very good English! There were only 4 people in our group which was fantastic - only a few drop offs and could see what we wanted to see. Seeing the Pandas was the best part of the day - so cute! quite gutted we couldn't see the rest of the zoo.
The only weaknesses of this tour is that we were only allowed to take pictures outside of the stadium - we weren't given a tour around. Also we were taken to a Tea House which wasn't on the tour description - where I don't like different flavored tea and the employees were hassling us to buy something/more all the time. The visit shouldn't have been included as it was a waste of time and money.
Other than that we had an enjoyable day out
