Great 2 day tour
, Dec 2019
This tour was great! Ideal for anyone and families. We were a family of 5 adults. Keith our tour guide was excellent! He provided the best recommendations especially where to eat the best Peking duck! Thanks for the recommendation! He is very knowledgeable and friendly and we enjoyed our 2 day tour. Walking up the Great Wall of China and toboggan down was fun and absorbing the breathtaking views of the Summer Palace, Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven. Lunch on the tour was excellent too! 10/10. Thank you again for an awesome tour.

Keith was a great guide. We saw all the important sites and he provided the commentary to explain the history and significance. If you have a limited time to explore or just want to get an excellent experience this is a great choice

Day 1: Our Great Wall experience with Keith was all we could have hoped for. We went on the more difficult side (right side) and found far fewer people. The tea sampling was lots of fun. It would have been nice to have been able to get closer to the Olympic Bird's Nest, but another event precluded that. The Summer Palace was also quite interesting although I would not recommend going in August as it was extremely hot and crowded. Keith was an excellent tour guide and was very open with us speaking about day-to-day experiences in China. Day 2: We had a different tour guide for the second day and he spoke so quickly it was difficult to understand him. He also spent a lot of time on his phone and was not as engaged with our group as Keith was. I would have downgraded the rating based on this, but Keith was so good the previous day, I left it at a 5. Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City were very interesting.. Our tour guide did add in a stop at a silk factory, which was quite interesting. The Hutong area was okay, but far too crowded and we had to wait quite a while to get a rickshaw. I would definitely recommend this tour, but if you can avoid July and August, it would be less crowded.

Hello, Larry, thank you so much for the review, and I am very glad that you loved my tour:) For the other tour guide, thanks for let us know that he was not doing very well for his job. And we will not use him as our tour guide any more, to prevent this happening again in the future. Thanks again and very best regards :)
Great time in Beijing!

This trip was incredible! Both Susan and Keith were great guides. Saw all the main points I wanted to in just 2 days. The lunches both days were fantastic too. Thank you so much.

First day it was worth but the second day not. The first day tour guy was very helpful but 2nd day she finished early and not worth.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2019
Thank you very much for review us, and good comment for me on the first day:) And I totally understand you feel a bit down for the second day. Because on the first day(Great Wall), we drove a lot, like more than 4 hours depending on the traffic, so normally we finish late, and totally tour duration is about 10 or more hours. But on the second day which is the inner city tour, no need to drive a lot, that's why we finish earlier and the duration is about 8 hours, for the day like yours, 37 Celsius degree with hot sun, the tour guide may walk faster or take short cut to avoid you get sun burn. So that you may feel like not worthy on second day, but I can assure you, the cost is even a bit higher than first day because the rickshaw ride. I really hope you enjoyed the ride, and the rest of the tour. Thanks again for the review.
Fantastic Experience
, May 2019
It was a fantastic private tour. We saw many of China's famous historian places and the guide was full of information and ready with an answer to all the questions we had.
a lot to see in a very short time
, Apr 2019
overall the tour is good, but I think it is too much to see and not enough time. We found ourselves often running and not taking the time to take it all in several times which is not great as there's a lot to see and enjoy. Overall the guides have a lot of knowledge but I didn't like being rushed most of the time, or having them find excuses for not doing something or going somewhere. On both days both of the guides tried stopping us from doing all the things stated on the tour, such as the boat on the summer palace or the visit to the Jigsaw park. Also, on my second day I had to take a taxi to meet the tour as apparently my hotel was out of their way, which I was very annoyed by, as I got a tour specifically because I wanted everything to be organized for me. in any case, it is a good way to see the most important bits if you don't have a lot of time, but you will be super tired after both days. So if you don't have enough time, I would recommend the tour, if you do, I would take it easy to enjoy things properly.

Hello, thank you very much for review our tour. We will keep the good and fix the bad. I am sorry for the tour guide rushed you on the trip, also please let us know who was the tour guide stopping you from boat ride, we will not tolerate this behavior. For the taxi, we are sorry for the trouble, but we did this only for thinking for you. Because if we pickup all the people in the group, especially there are solo travelers, it may take more than an hour for you sitting in the Van just for pickup others, not on your way to the attraction. Why not use this time to enjoy a breakfast, right? Also, we reimbursed your taxi fare, no? Anyways, thank you very much for the review, please email us who was the tour guide.
Fabulous Tour!
, Mar 2019
It was such a great experience, enjoyed every bit of it. Our tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, helpful, fun and very informative lady. We loved how everything plan and executed, it covered all the must-see sites in Beijing. Exceeded our expectations, especially the acrobat show performance, totally worth it. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Beijing for the first time.
An excellent tour!
, Jan 2019
This is the right tour if you have limited time in Beijing, it was a terrific tour! It covered all the important sights. There was right amount of time spent at each attraction and we never felt rushed or bored. The guide was very knowledgeable and willing to answer to all the questions asked. Highly recommend!
Excellent Tour in Beijing
, Dec 2018
It is the best tour we had in Beijing, all the sights were excellent. We had 5 people in the group, the van was big enough, very comfortable. And we were able to only choose the silk presentation, it went very well, was easy to understand, and to see all the silkworms and pupas. At the end, we didn't feel any hard selling, thanks to Keith, he helped a lot for bargain as well. Overall, best 2 days in Beijing, worth every penny, would like to take the tour again.
