    The tour was well done. Our Guide was Liu and he was very good. He took a lot of extra steps to ensure a good trip. He also had a lot of knowledge. What we didn’t like is the lunch stop. Food was cold and poor standard. Rest trip was good with some jade store stop where we didn’t buy anything. Neither did others. So the store was very unhappy. It showed on their faces.

    Our guide Lee was very knowledgeable of China history other then that very disappointed. Nothing in the caption said anything about the stops they made to the Jade, silk and tea places. My wife did try on a dress at the silk factory and our tour guide was standing with us trying to convince her to buy it and I was getting very upset and we left. The Jade factory they hounded you and then after the Great Wall they said they were taking us to a tea shop and if we liked it we can purchase some, at this point we told him we did not want to go and they still pulled up in front and we told him again we do not want to go and then we left. Not happy at all and can’t recommend this trip !! Anything we do from here on out for tours if it is not on the agenda we are not doing it !!

    Excellent and experienced tour guide Jacky. Bad vehicle with no proper air conditioning. Tour could have been completed in 5 hours if forceful stops at Jade Factory, Silk factory and Traditional Chinese tea were not included in the trip.

    We had the pleasure to have Li as our tour guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining. Lunch they served was ok.

    Zoe, our tour guide was the best. Very fluent in English and very experienced and knowledgable. She was a blast and kept us together several times enjoying the sights while she went and stood in lines to get us tickets. Really made for a pleasant time and we were all pals by the end of the day. Really glad to see the sights we did on this tour and we used the tram to go up/down the Great Wall. Very cool

    Leo was an amazing tour guide. Nothing felt rushed. The forbidden city is gorgeous, and he knew all the best spots for pictures. We didn’t go to Badaling, but went to another section instead that was closer. It was steep but the views were worth it.

    I am very disappointed that this expensive tour also included a very suspicious tea ceremony leaving me dizzy and confused, followed by persuasive selling of highly overpriced tea. "Free lunch" at Jade factory was unfortunately also included. Was picked up by friendly, English-speaking guide at my hotel. Guiding at Great Wall at Badaling, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square was excellent.

    Our guide was excellent in her English it was a great history lesson and Unforgettable experience to see the Great Wall in all its history to see Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City and all the aspirations of the first emperor it was wonderful

    This was our first tour in China and our tour guide did NOT disappoint. Our day was WONDERFUL and we have seen/experienced a LOT OF NICE THINGS :- Our guide was helpful and informative. He showed up on time and was friendly. This tour is well/fairly priced and SHOULD NOT BE MISSED!!!

    For the price, this tour was very accommodating. However, we were under the impression that the tour of the silk factory and jade factory would be more of an educational experience, but really it was just a moment to be haggled into buying something. The forbidden city and great wall were both breathtaking structures, Tiananmen square was closed when we were there so we went to a tea house instead. After we sampled different kinds of tea, of course that became another haggle fest as well. Overall, the tour was fine, I just didn't appreciate the sales people pressuring you into buying something as soon as you walked in the door.
