5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

Cynthia was amazing! Recommended we go see Chairman Mao's body lying in state at Tiananmen Square while watching our bags, as the line was unusually short; highlight of the day for my husband! She did a great job of hitting the highlights but allowing us extra time when we wanted to. Recommended!

This was an exceptional experience with tour guide Cynthia who guided us at our own pace, helping to take pictures, providing excellent commentary, all in perfect English. Temple of Heaven is not to be missed. And Forbidden City is also a must see. A special experience was learning a traditional line dance in the park before you enter the Temple itself. Cynthia allowed us to chose menu items at lunch, including lotus. Note this tour took longer than nominal 4 hours because it was at our pace.

I was then only one on this tour for the day and would highly recommend as Roy is a knowledgeable guide, and as promised, no shopping!

This private tour was excellent and Roy was amazing! Would definitely go again. If you're going to tour Beijing, this is the way to do it. We took a few tours the days before this and nothing compared.

You will enjoy the main in-city attractions with this tour. Reasonably priced. No bottled water though despite featuring it in the description. Always give your tour guide the description of the tour, as they are informed about the tour the last moment without any details.
