Great Wall and Forbidden City with Jerry
, Jan 2020
Great day out with Jerry. Well worth the money. Very knowledgeable guide who makes sure you see everything important and plans day to maximise time spent at sights and out of traffic. Would recommend.
Great Adventure to the Great Wall
, Jan 2020
I was fetched from my hotel lobby by Lisa at 8am. She was extremely pleasant and spoke fluent English. Our first destination was Tiananmen Square. Lisa was well versed with the history of China and she kept the facts rolling. Being a South African from Durban I was not used to the negative temperatures of Beijing in December yet Lisa was very considerate. We then entered the Forbidden City. This was amazing. With plenty of photo opportunities I was drawn into a bygone era. Our personal driver then fetched us for lunch and we went to a traditional restaurant to taste various Chinese cuisine. Our next stop was the Great Wall. Taking a cable car up I was stunned by the breathtaking views. To get back down we rode a taboggan and then did some curio shopping. This was an epic tour from an extraordinary lady. Highly recommendable
Great Experience
, Dec 2019
Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Beijing for business and had a few days off to look around, so I decided to search for a tour operator who could offer me as much exposure of the region's culture and history as posable within the time available. After attempting to book with other mainstream operators on their website, I found Viator was the easiest to navigate, make a booking and process a payment. The company provided feedback such as confirmation of the booking, follow-up advice and updates leading up to the event which provided me the re-assurance that all was on-track. The driver and guide met me in the hotel foyer on time and was very welcoming. The guide was informative right from the start by explaining the itinerary for the day and checked off any necessary admin points such as passport etc... A special thank you to my guide as her displayed a great balance of care and understanding; was mindful of pace without being rushed and was very informative. I would recommend this activity and hope this feedback helps other would-be travellers. Thank you.
Great day at the Great Wall.
, Dec 2019
We only had a limited time in Beijing so turned to Viator for a comprehensive deep dive into the Forbidden City and a trip out to the Great Wall. There were 8 of us altogether, and needed an English speaking guide in a vehicle large enough to accommodate. What we got was perfect. Our guide, Linda, was sensitive to our needs as a group and filled with valuable insights for the places we visited. We were grateful for her professionalism and congeniality. Would definitely recommend for others visiting Beijing.
Had a great time!

We were lucky enough to have Linda as our guide, her husband was our personal driver. She gave such a excellent tour and guided us around all the crowds. We were even given time to shop for specific items, She even guided us on additional places while we were in Bejing the next day,
Sally was Amazing
, Oct 2019
My wife and I had the pleasure of touring with Sally on our first trip to China this past September. She curated the perfect tour and catered exactly to our needs. Sally was the consummate professional and the perfect person for a private tour. I would do this tour a million times over, and highly recommend this experience for those wanting a private tour of the Great Wall.
