Good Day Tour

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.

This Tour is More Like a Shopping Tour Disappointing!!

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.

So booked this trip as I only had one day to see the best bits of Beijing. Expected a coach and instead there were only two of us in a taxi, perfect! The travel guide was also great, informative but not too intrusive. A perfect excursion and it helped that the weather was marvellous. The great wall was on my bucket list and didnt disappoint!

If You Only Have One Day in Beijing

Tour was good - not fantastic. It was nice to be herded through the Forbidden City and not have to deal with those crowds as an individual. Guide was nice and had his canned spiel well memorized. More time than necessary was spent taking us to the Silk and the Jade markets with mild pressure placed on us to make purchases. Was I picked up at my hotel? No. Was I dropped off back at my hotel? No. Did the tour guide come one by one to each person in the bus to solicit a gratuity at the end of the tour for both himself and the driver? Yes. I had but one day in Beijing and this tour ticked of the major sites I had hoped to see and experience.

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.

Suspicious tea ceremony and Jade shop were included

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.
