Why Travelers Choose This Tour
A maximum of six participants makes this tour perfect for those who prefer a calmer, more personal experience.
This tour was excellent! I wanted a tour that covered the Great Wall and Forbidden City and took care of all of the transportation and other details. This was it! Hotel pickup and dropoff, lunch arranged, tickets to all activities, and no trying to figure anything out. The guide, Tom, was very knowledgeable and answered all of our group's many questions. He also asked questions about food issues at lunch and carefully ordered for all of us, and lunch was amazing! The time at the Forbidden City and the Great Wall was perfect, allowing us to explore and take pictures, but not too long. I really can't recommend this tour enough!
We loved this tour! It was a small group and we all had a wonderful day together. So great to see so many sights all in one day, especially if you have limited time in Beijing. Our driver was really amazing and the tour guide was fluent in English. The lunch was delicious too. 10/10. Definitely book this!
the guide was great, explained a lot. Very small group (3 customers). Organisation worked perfect, pick-up at the hotel at 07:10, back at about 17:00
Great way to see the most important places within one day. The guide provided his knowledge and explained a lot when walking and in the car.
Beijing Forbidden City Tour with Great Wall Hiking at Mutianyu
, Nov 2019
Tour was excellent. Tour guide Lily was passionate about showing different attractions. Our group had 6 people. I would definitely recommend this tour for someone who wants to see all three things in a day. Tour started at Tiananmen square in the morning. We walked through Tiananmen square and then entered the Forbidden City. After that we went to Great Wall at Mutainyu. Tour allowed about 2 hours of walking at Mutianyu.
Wonderful Experience in the Great Wall thanks to our Tour Guide -Cactus-

We had an excellent experience with Viator, related to customer support. We were informed all the way about our tour to Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City and the Great Wall and we got our doubts solved inmediatly.
Since the beginning we were in touch with our tour guide: Cactus, who gave us detailed information about our pick up our and additional recommendations about the weather because it was expected to be a rainy and cold day.
During the tour Cactus, was an excellent tour guide. We want to highlight her kindness, knowledge of the topic and performance.
We don’t have any negative observations about our tour.
Totally recommend this tour!
My trip to China has been nothing but a remarkable and memorable one. I joined this tour with my sister hoping to learn and experience Beijing in a perspective of a local.
I would like to give 5 stars to the Travel Agency who arranged this tour for us. Without it, we would not have met Tom, the most caring and thoughtful tour guide ever. He even made sure that we got home safe and enjoyed our tour. (Rarely do you find someone who would go out of there way)
We also highly commend Tom because of his patience and knowledge. He has a good mastery of the history that we went to, credible answers to our questions and most of all brought us to the best spots in the area.
Thank you Tom and to your team! I will be rebooking with you on my next Beijing trip. Once again, Thank you so much.
We are so pleased that you had a memorable time with Tom in our one-day Beijing tour! Thanks for recommending Trippest Mini Group Tours! Tom has been a guide for many years, and good at Beijing culure and history. We hope you have learnt something about Beijing which is all you want to know from Tom. We will be looking forward to your coming next time in Beijing!
Lily is an excellent guide. Funny too! What can I say? It's the GREAT WALL, man! Lunch was delicious and she got us back to the rail station on time to catch our train. The sled ride down was awesome. Super fun. I wish we had more time in Beijing.
This was one of the best organized trips I have taken! I was travelling solo after a school trip and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Sunny, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and it was a delight to have her show us around the Great Wall and Forbidden City. On the day of the tour, there happened to be many street closures mandated by the government. Sunny went out her way to help me get back to my hotel. Not only that, when I told her I was going to meet someone for dinner, she offered to take me to my dinner place- knowing I would have a hard time navigating the street closures and transportation re-routes by myself. I am yet to see this level of customer service anywhere in the US. As a result, she stayed 2 hours after the trip was over to help me find my dinner venue and only returned to her home after dropping me off safely at the venue. I will never forget this trip and her helpfulness!
Thank you for your great review! Due to the preparation of 70th National Day, there was a traffic control in Beijing. We have made some solutions for this situation to avoid the impacts on our tours. Sunny is experienced and likes to help others. We are also very glad that you reached the dinner place safely on that day. Hope you will have a nice trip in Beijing!
