  • Very bad experience with this trip... they pick us at the hotel in shanghai with a private car, without any identification, after we landed in beijing we wait it the airport more than 1 hour until our guide person pick us with our name written in chinese... then we go to the great wall, this was the only good part of the trip, the hotel in beijing is very disgusting, dirty and broken curtains, dirty carpet, bathrooms with sewage smell, pipelines above the floor, very disgusting hotel, even the location of this hotel was not good to walk around it... next day we went to forbidden city after that to the airport... we do not recommend this trip to anyone... very bad experience...

  • Awesome!!!! I travel a lot, This was the first time i had ever done a private one on one tour. I was thrilled with how everything was perfectly arranged. My tour guide Cris, was excellent. Her knowledge of the Chinese history made the tour fascinating and fun. We did things I would have never done on my own. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Beijing.

  • After taking a cruise that ended in Shanghai, I wanted to visit Beijing since I was so close the city. The tour/tour company was exceptional. We were in communication with the company for a week in advance via email and they addressed all of my concerns. We were picked up at our hotel for our early flight and the driver made sure we had our boarding passes and ready to start the tour. We had the BEST tour guide, Cristina Guo Shi Qing, who was careful in meeting the needs of two elderly tourists. She allowed us to make some minor changes and was understanding if we need extra breaks. She was extremely knowledgeable about the sites and provide us with lots of historical and cultural information. I would definitely suggest this tour if you have a limited time in the city. My only regret is we did not have more time.

  • We loved Robert as our guide! He was very knowledgable and interesting! Easy to talk to. We loved the order of the trip, the Great Wall first and Beijing second. Our hotel was very nice though it could use some updating. The location was superb! It was a great value!

  • Had a great 2 days in Beijing. I would recommend this tour...
