    Also if my flight was late (2hrs) my guide Tom was waiting for me. Everything was well organized and Tom has been a great guide that in short time show us Great Wall and Forbidden City too. Thank you Tom and Viator.

    Mt grown son and I had a 14 hour layover and wanted to experience Beijing. We were lucky and got Davis as our driver. He made our day special, so glad we decided to go with a driver we were able to relax, enjoy and learn about the area.

    We opted for the private driver and it was great. We were delayed for 2 hours because of airline delays and visa wait but driver was still there to pick us up. Driver was great.
    Some notes:
    *If you dont speak the language definitely book a guided tour. I feel we missed some history doing it on our own.
    *there is a lot of walking. Be mindful if you are traveling with senior citizens
    *I got google translate and it worked well
    *Get at least 100 USD in Yuan
    *You can really spend the whole day. We did literally a 2 hour visit.
    * Going later allowed for less people which was great. we arrived at park at 4pm and it closes at 530p
    If you can take it all in and appreciate it within 3 hours just do it.
    Driver was wonderful. Had water and umbrellas for us. Found me a place to smoke. Attentive and friendly.

    I booked this excursion since I was passing thru Beijing and wanted to see as much as I could in only 10 hours. My flight arrived at 11:00am and immediately when I reached the lobby, my driver, Linda was there holding a sign with my name. She showed me to the nearest ATM and then we headed to our van. The transportation was a 2017 Oldsmobile minivan in great condition. Inside I had water waiting for me and USB ports to charge my phone.

    Linda my driver was AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about her. We had great conversation and music throughout the day and was so nice. Since I was traveling alone, she took a lot of pictures for me and even went and got my tickets to the wall while I browsed the lobby area.

    I got her cell number and we communicated as I was making my decent down the wall and for us to meet up again. From there we headed into the city. She drove me to the Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and a night food market.

    After that Linda and I headed to the airport to catch my flight. I felt so comfortable with Linda all day and she went above and beyond to make my trip, even thought it was fast, a memorable one! I would highly recommend this excursion and to ask for Linda as your driver. Her English is perfect too! Thank you again Linda!

    Our flight came in about an hour late and it took another hour to get through the 24/144 visa process but our fantastic guide Wangshen was still waiting for us. We booked the guide only tour and it was great because Wangshen took care of us every step of the way. The trip to the wall takes over an hour but Wangshen made sure we got the right tickets to go up the chairlift and down the slide and even helped us avoid the shuttle to save time and money - we spent about three hours at the wall. The wall was amazing and then, as we all slept in the SUV, Wangshen brought us back to Beijing to see some of the best sites and capped it all off with bringing us to an authentic Chinese food restaurant where he helped us order some of the best dishes. It was an excellent tour for our family of 5 and took about 10 hours in total - I would highly recommend the tour and especially Wangshen for his knowledge, professionalism and no-nonsense approach to driving and touring.
