  • This was my favorite tour of all days tours I did. The lama temple and giant Buddha's were my favorite. The lunch in the hutongs was a great experience as well to understand traditional living. The guide was the best part. I believe her name was Ouyu. of all my guides she was the only one that made sure I understood how to get back to my hotel it was in an odd area that the bus couldn't pull up to. She spoke great English and had a wonderful sense of humor. Highly recommend, even if only one day in China!

  • Got to see a lot in a short amount of time. The Rickshaw ride was a great add in and the lunch included was really nice, only problem was it seemed really rushed and the guide didnt give much information of the area but overall great way to see beijing!

  • This is a really good tour that covers a lot of ground in a short period of time especially given the traffic that seems to be everywhere in Beijing. The trip to the Zoo is really just an opportunity to see the Panda's and not much else but it seemed that thats all most were interested in anyway. The tour guide was knowledgeable, prompt and very polite.

  • Excellent. Our guide was fun, knowledgable and spoke perfect English. Much more than I expected. Driver was much better than taxis I used during my stay. Fun and relaxing tour.
