It was an amazing experience! We saw many things in a short period of time. English speaking guide was great!
Nice tour, but the Jade factory and Tea house should be cut out. The items there are overpriced by at least 50. Don't buy anything there! You can find better prices at the silk market and even the airport.
This was one of my favorite tours with Viator because the section of the wall that we went to had incredible views.
I'm half and half on this tour. For The Great Wall portion of the tour, it was great. The wall was amazing. It's a steep walk even just getting up to the cable cars. It says disable friendly but my mum was injured and she could barely make it up. The guide doesn't actually go up to the wall with you so we learned nothing about the wall itself other than who built it and why. Paid for a tour guide who wasn't even with us the whole day. You don't actually go to Tiananmen Square. You see it across a busy road. The Forbidden City was pretty boring and our tour guide didn't really do anything to try and make it interesting. And we got rushed through everything pretty quickly. Jade Factory was ok. We bought some pretty things. Make sure you haggle. Don't pay the price it says. A lot of it isn't worth as much as they say so unless you haggle, you're getting ripped off. The Tea Shop is another rip off. It's for white tourists so the prices are very expensive. Walk into any of the multiple teashops around Beijing for much better pricing.
Amazing. Well worth the money
