Sabrina was a great guide, she was very knowledgeable and her English was amazing. The tour was in the winter and the bus was kept nice and toasty. Even though the tour is shorter you still see a lot of things and spend a good amount of time at each stop.

It's my first time in Beijing and I enjoyed this tour :) Our tour guide Tina speaks very good English and she explained the history of Chinese culture. Her colleague (i forgot the name) helped me took photos since I'm a solo traveler. I really appreciate it :) Overall, this is a great tour! Highly recommended.
