We had a really nice day with Keith, the guide. He was really good and nice, shared lots of information not only for attractions, but also other questions we asked, he was very patient.
The tour was also fantastic, very well planned, and the group was well organized, all of us enjoyed the day. And hotel pickup was on time, stayed enough time on each attraction, no rush at all. Although the traffic was very bad, but Keith managed to keep up with the schedule. Also, the Acrobat show is outstanding! Lucky we chose to see it.
I would love to do the city tour with Keith next time, and will recommend this tour to my friends.
This tour was AWESOME!! Guide went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. He spoke excellent english and was incredibly informative. He even shared a few things outside of what we paid for, and dropped us at a place for Peking duck.
Keith went above and beyond for us. He listened very carefully to what we wanted and followed up. He is a Beijing native and could answer all the questions we asked. He’s just what you want in a tour guide.
It was definitely a great tour, I loved its wording on the website at the beginning, and really loved it after the tour! We had 6 people in the group, and it was well organized, pickup was on time, the guide Keith really kept this group on schedule even we had few girls were slow on scenic spot...
The great wall was just unbelievable, summer palace was amazing, was the best season to visit in Beijing! And we had really no crowd in the morning on the wall, got lots of pictures without any others in the background!
We went for the acrobat show in the evening, was stunning! How can they did that? And also been to the bar on top of the tower building, we were lucky didn't have much smog on that day, so was able to see from far away. Just one thing though, the champagne was not that good...
Anyways, very good tour, lucky we chose this one, loved it!
This tour included the two most gorgeous sights in Beijing, really loved its itinerary, two outer city attractions in one day, saved lots of time for traveling, that I could have more time in the city center with easier transport, like metro. AND, the tour executed just like the itinerary, perfect timing and everything.So, highly recommended this tour, best value tour I could find.
It was an amazing trip! It was only few people on the Great Wall when we got there in the morning, very lucky. Took loads of pictures that just me on the Wall, just fantastic! The Chinese lunch is very nice, sitting beside the window, the great wall view was stunning. We had a nice walk in the Summer Palace, and took the boat for a shot cut, saved lots of walking, it was a well planned routine, loved it! Thanks to our tour guide Keith, he was really nice and caring, knowledgeable and spoke good English.
The sights were wonderful, guide was nice, the car was nice, the show was exciting, just can't expect more from it.
It was wise we started the tour earlier in the morning, thanks Keith, our guide. The Great Wall session was great, not many people on the wall around 9am. And we spent almost 3 hours there, it was more than enough. The toboggan slide down was terrific, it was a must thing to do on the wall. We had the Chinese food for lunch, just loved it, sweet and sour chicken was the best!
Ok, about the summer palace session in the afternoon, it was terrible. Not because of the tour or guide, but there were too many people in there, and the doors and paths were so small everybody was just stuck there, it was nightmare! Really shouldn't come here on their national holiday - golden week for travel...
Overall, the tour was very nice, the Great Wall was amazing!!! Altough the summer palace was packed with people, Keith still made the most out of it, jobs well done, he spoke really good and clear English, best guide ever met in China.
There were only 2 of us in the group, I was worried about the guide. But Keith did a great job, he was also the driver, very professional and willing to help.
Exceptional tour experience, super great deal! You won't be regret for booking this tour!!
