We had a wonderful time at Beijing. My family of 5 ranged between 70+ and 9+, so our interest areas were wide. This tour exceeded our expectations as it combined the beautiful culture, scenary, history and people for our family members. We got to experience an every day life of an emperor and of a chinese citizen. It was great to see combination of history and modern bustles all in one place. Our guides were very accommodating to our needs and encouraged us on throughout the day, so that we dont miss interesting events and sights. Our tour guilde started even before we arrived in Bejing as I had a billion questions for my tour guide, who in return, answered them patiently and truthfully :). Highly recommeded to go with private tours!

This was a fabulous tour. We did so much more than the title indicates. We had a home cooked meal in a local home, private paper cutting and calligraphy demonstrations, trip to the drum town and more. We had two guides, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Both were fun, informative, and engaging. I HIGHLY recommend this tour.

Throughout my two week trip in China, I was most looking forward to the historical side of Beijing, primarily Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. I had learned a lot about China's history and it had always fascinated me. I truly wanted a private experience (where I could pester the guide with tons of questions) and this tour delivered! My guide was an expert on all things China and answered all my questions and gave me more insight than I had expected to receive. All at such a great price too!

This was an excellent tour for a visitor with limited time. The guides were very knowledgable and helpful. After Jingshan Park, be sure to leave plenty of time to return to a downtown hotel as many cans are full and empty cabs goint the opposite direction will not turn around for you.

While we enjoyed the tour I did think the morning felt a bit rushed... the 'Tiananmen Square' piece of the tour was literally just standing in the middle of the square and looking around us, I thought there would have been a bit more to it. Jingshan Park was beautiful, I wish more time was given here. As there were only the two of us on the tour it was a little harder to have any time to sit, take a break from all the walking or just to enjoy the locations you were visiting. Our guide was lovely though and after a few days in Beijing we had loads of questions for her which she happily answered! She showed us how to follow the Subway system also which was really helpful to us over the next few days.
If you do the tea ceremony though, maybe be a little wiser than us and ask for the price first before taking part. Afterwards the price seemed to vary depending on how much we spent buying the teas...
The afternoon was brilliant, we really enjoyed the hutong tour and lunch in a local's house. It was just a very different experience and the food was yum :)

The tour was basic and I could have done the first half myself. The second half was excellent mainly because of the guide (Daniel). My conversations with him were the highlight of the tour.

The experience was OK. I had my own ideas about what the tour would be and it did that... pretty much. Our guide struggled with his English a bit and that made it a little tougher to get through it all. Tiananmen Square was closed the day we were there and the smog in Beijing was impressive! That also did not help the experience, but that's the way it goes. All in all we saw what we expected to see. As I said, it was OK.
