    We book this tour online and it was amazing! The tour included the places that we wanted to see, Jin was our guide and he made the experience even better. He was very knowledgeable, allowed enough time in each location and presented options (for example access to the Great Wall) Highly recommend!!

    This was my second day with tour guide Sophia and this time we were taking in the Summer Palace, Quianmen Street and the Temple of Heaven, to name just a few. I was the only person on this day's tour and I had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable visit. Sophia is very knowledgeable about the city's history and also helped me try to find birthday cards for my nephew's birthday. I had a really great day. Thank you, Sophia.

    Sunny was excellent , knowledgeable, warm and went far beyond guiding the tour by helping several of us out with other Beijing questions and even escorting me by subway to my next event The tour is a great way to see the highlights of Beijing if you have a short amount of time Highly recommended

    The trip was great, our tour guide Linda was v. knowledgable, helpful and friendly, v. good English and made sure everyone was happy and comfortable on the trip. We visited Tianamen Square, Firbidden City and the Great Wall, me & my friend went up with the group by cable car, then walked to the stop where we got the tobaggen down, we both loved it. Linda made sure everyone did what they were happy & comfortable to do, explaining things clearly. She made great recommendations too, so we highly recommend her.

    very nice day trip! even though the tour guide might slow down a little, but it was probably due to holidays and traffic jam.

    I usually prefer self explore whenever come to travelling. However, since I only got short days in Beijing, hence, I choose the one day tour to avoid the crowd & traffic jam. I searched like crazy on Tripadvisor to find the perfect excellent review tour, and this came to me. I was concern about the price, it's quite expensive comparing other tour company. However, the reviews persuade me to make a try. When I register, I don't have credit card neither Paypal account, I was worry that I couldn't have slot in the tour on that day, because maximum is 6 people. Hence, I wechat to the company, they are friendly & professional in offering me paying by cash upon arrival. I was amazed that when I checked in the hotel, the tour guide Ms Nancy Niu already called to hotel & giving me message as reminder. Such a wonderful preparation! In the morning, the trip should start at 8:30 AM, but to avoid the crowd & traffic, the bus came earlier at 7:30 AM. It's so great that Ms Nancy's English is fluently!!!!! She told us the history of TianMen, Forbidden city, Great Wall via headset which is very useful & convenience (like bluetooth), we can go around to take picture, but still can connect with her, hear her voice, we don't scare to be lost among many people. Moreover, we saved a lot of time, no need long queuing under sun, skip the crowd, directly entry to Forbidden City like VIP guest which I felt kinda cool ~ We had a lot fun, we are like friend, we ate a lot of nice food, we took a lot of pictures as well After the trip, she recommended me some places for nice food like lamb hotpot, peking duck, bubble milk tea, etc. I love this trip a lot ~ I definitely recommend to my friends or whenever I go China again, I will check if the company has tour in that city or not. ~ Thank Ms Nancy, thanks Trippest ~
