William was a great tour guide! We had an excellent day at the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. It was extremely hot and William was kind enough to lend me his umbrella. The tour also supplied us with water for the day--they truly went above and beyond. Lunch at the Great Wall was surprisingly good. William allowed us to decide how we would go up the Great Wall and we opted for the cable car up and some took the toboggan down but we did the cable car down also. Overall, we saw a lot in one day and William was very informative and took our interests into account throughout. I highly recommend this tour!

The tour operator was China Highlights. Unfortunately, Tian'namen Square was closed due to a scheduled event of some kind. We only saw it from across the street as we walked toward the museum and the Forbidden City, which was interesting. We then drove by mini-van to Mutianyu for lunch before visiting the Great Wall. Our guide, Rico, was outstanding throughout the day. He was knowledgable and gave us valuable insights as we toured. He was especially patient and helpful with my wife, who had a previous hip replacement and experienced some degree of difficulty with the higher, steeper steps on the wall at Mutianyu. The lunch was forgettable, but overall, Rico made our visit to the Wall an excellent experience.

We had an amazing day visiting the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and The Great Wall. Our guide, Jerry, was very kind, he foul and enthusiastic. He had so much information to share, and he took very good care of us. He took us to a fantastic restaurant for lunch and made sure we stayed hydrated. I enjoyed our time with Jerry. His English was very good and he took time to explain history, protocol and important information. Thank you Jerry! We will never forget you. -Joanie Williams

Amazing tour! Guide was easy to talk to, she spoke English well, and was very professional. Tour met on time and I was picked up a nice van. Bottled water was provided throughout the day. Even the driver was friendly.

We saw all the sites mentioned. The guide did a great job of going into detail about the history of Beijing and China history, and the various sites. She knew the small places to meet that were away from other tour groups or in the shade. She used a microphone with ear pieces for each of us, so we could always hear her without being right next to her. The Great Wall was amazing! We were provided more than enough time to climb the wall and get down. She asked us if we wanted to visit a gift shop not forced which was nice and we each bought something as the prices were very reasonable.

She also took us to a non tourist restaurant for lunch and explained all the dishes. Coke and hot water were provided at no charge.

I would highly recommend this tour from this tour group!

We loved it and we loved Jerry! Even more than that, we had a small group of 6 which made the experience even that much better. Being a small group, we had a chance to bond as a group and get to know each other. It was a total blast and very informative. Thank you!

Great trip! Linda our guide was fantastic. Small group setting so we had plenty of personal attention. Linda answered all of our questions and I could not have hoped for a better trip or experience.

The trip was everything that the describtion said it would be. The day I went it was very windy so walking around the Forbidden City was awful due to the weather. Lunch was SO good! The Great was was nice, took the ski lift up and the toboggan down. Highly recommend doing both!!
