Our guide Tony was very good on this introduction tour and it an ideal way to see Bejing as your first tour. Tony was knowledable and his command of English is Vey Good.

This is an ideal way to start any visit to Beijing visiting many places which you are not likely to see again on any other tour.

One word of caution, if you are part of a cruise please ensure you depart the ship as early as possible and tray not to be off the ship any later than 14:00 to ensure you make your meeting date at the Hotel.

Overall - exceptional tour guide and tour.

The three hour tour ended up being only 2 hrs and 15min. We made our way into the city to the 2nd ring road at the request of the tour operator as our hotel was just north of the 5th ring road. The Olympic Birds nest was on the itinerary so seeing that it was close to our hotel, I suggested that they organise the route so that we end up at that end of the city, which would have made it easier for us to get back to our hotel. They ignored that request. I was annoyed to see that we went so close to our hotel and then all the way back the other way to the cbd.. I was not happy with the vehicle as it was not easy to see out of the windows. We could not get close enough to take any decent photos of the National stadium or Water Cube. I do not recall seeing any night market or Wangfujing. There was minimal strolling through the streets. Just rushed drive throughs. It did not meet my expectations at all. However, I must say the guide was very pleasant and informative.

We were fortunate to be the only two on the tour. We had a private tour and our guide was very informative and had fantastic english. The best part of this tour was that although we had extensively travelled Beijing we were bought to a few hidden gems. We loved this tour. It was a highlight for us.
