We had an amazing time on our small group tour. Our Guide Jane was a joy to be with. Her knowledge of the many places we visited and her willingness to join in to the activities was a treat. We also ate at restaurants that were popular with the locals. Our car was comfortable and clean and miraculously appeared at our exit gate. I thought the tour was well planned and enough time provided to see what you needed to see. No part of the tour was cut short, there were no tourist traps and I thought it was commendable that Jane and the driver were so accommodating to our questions and needs. Recommend this Tour. Hope you get Jane as your guide..
This tour was amazing! William was so knowledgeable and great to get along with! He really cactivated the group with China and #39;s history. Loved having a small group that go along so well!!!
This tour was everything I wanted and more, Candice , our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience even richer with all the stories about the sites we visit, Candice and the driver were always on time and on schedule for all the activities. I had a blast! Thank you so much!
Angela was a superb guide, for me solo and some Aussies. I can't believe the many places with visited in just two days, yet she made it all so relaxed and unhurried. Angela really listened to us and modified the tour accordingly, such as going to a neighborhood restaurant with locals that was fabulous. And we got delightful inside stories that made the places and people come alive. She also gave us great tips for dinner places and further travel--including arranging tickets to the Peking Opera. She's so professional--and totally adorable.
Our guide, Jerry, was excellent. He was able to answer any question we had about the sites we visited and about China and its history. We had a small group, just 3 of us, which was ideal. And we got to see all of the major sites in two days without any hassles.
If you are looking for a great alternative to the large tours, this one is for you.
I joined a small group total of 5 for a 2 day trip with our guide Susie.
She is a very bright girl and gave us a good insight in all the attractions. Even for me as a nonnative speaker, her English was easy to understand.
We visited the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City on Day 1, Temple of Heaven, Jingshan Park and Summer Palace on Day 2.
The organization was excellent she even adjusted the schedule based on traffic conditions. The driver dropped us right in front of the site and picked us up just minutes after we left, losing virtually no time. For lunch she picked local restaurants with amazing Chinese food for everyone to share.
Her knowledge of the attractions is really good. So even regarding the limited time it were only 2 days for all these major attractions after all, she gave us a good insight in the history of these places and always had some interesting background stories to tell.
After the tour we exchanged mobile numbers and she sent over all photos she took from the group or of me within hours.
Great Service, great tour, great guide! I will never forget these 2 days I spent in Beijing.
Tour was great, saw a lot in two days. This tour requires a LOT of walking on uneven surfaces/stairs so be prepared. The included lunch on Day One was at Subway yes, Subway sandwiches at the Great Wall and not at other restaurant as publicized. Lunch on second day was much better. Six people on tour and our guide and driver were very knowledgeable and punctual. No spare time on this tour!!!
A very complete tour with a very pleasant guide : Candice !
Tour description indicated that lunch on the first day would be at a western café, we ended up at a Subway. Tour description indicated the ride up to Great Wall of China would be with a cable car. We ended up taking a chair lift. I have fear of height, hence the ride was fearful. Good overall.
Excellent tour. Our guide Mark was great. However our van had NO air conditioning and was unbearably warm. I give Mark 5 stars and the van a negative 5 stars.
