What people are saying about Beijing

Wonderful guide and poor office communication

The office didn't contact us as to the timing of the pickup till 2pm the previous day so we ended up calling them. Any email communication with Getyour guide takes a lifetime so bear this in mind. But that was the only problem. Our guide was Tony - SUPERB! The group together with us was 5 people so that was practically a private tour. We went to the Forbidden City, Tienammen, short stop at the jade factory (no pushing to buy), the Mutianyu part of the Wall (1 hour+ walk on it), looked at the Olympic stadium and the swimming complex, The Bell Tower and the Drum tower (the latter two from the outside). Tony was very informative and helpful throughout - especially as one of the people on the tour lost her bag with her passport and $ in the Forbidden City and he called the police which recovered it with everything in the bag intact. Great job! Lunch was excellent, too (about 5 various dishes). We travelled in a minivan like a local Chrysler Town and Country with a/c. Highly recommended!

Best to see the Great Wall for 1 hour only

Everything went well, the guide was good, lunch was good, the Great Wall was spectacular but we get to spend 1 hour only. Our group of 11 booked for Badaling but we were brought to Mutianyu. We didnt complain though but it's not a good thing. The worst part is the obligatory stop of this herbal medicine shop. The guide excites every one with a foot massage after the Great Wall climb. After a hot foot bath, these herbal doctors will tell you your health problems basing from your pulse, and hard sell you their products which could cost you over $1000. If you do not know how to politely decline, you might be convinced to buy. But be vigilant, do not be deceived. Tell them you need to consult your doctor first or you have to research about the product before you purchase anything.

I wish there was more time at the Great Wall

great day trip, good tour of the forbidden city, a jade factory, tea factory/chinese medicine place and the wall. However, the queue to get up to the wall in the cable car (also, cable car wasn't optional, we all had to pay for it) was at least 50 minutes plus 50 minutes down, we were given two hours so obviously we were late getting back to the bus and still only had max 30 mins on the wall. Tour guide was excellent though. Also, we weren't told the pick up time and location until 7.30pm the night before - perhaps give warning to your customers of when they will receive the message as we were a little worried that we had not heard anything.

It was an interesting tour well organized

In the beginning, we were not sure if we could get the trip since we did not have any information on the pickup location! We had to ask the reception person to make a couple of phone calls to make sure that we indeed have the trip scheduled. When that was clear, just half day before our trip actually everything went smoothly! So we liked our experience a lot. The bus picked us up from our hotel. Our guide was friendly and informative. He provided answers for all kind of questions. We liked all the places we visited. Also, the size of the group was manageable! Overall plus points!

Great value, great chance to see some very special parts of China.

The tour guide could not have been more helpful and friendly. The tour included many activities, so great if you want to see and do a lot in just one day. This did mean that some things were shorter than ideal - so if you want a whole day on the wall, this is not the right tour. But it was perfect for what I wanted to do - a long tiring day but just delightful to see so much. The highlight for me was undoubtedly visiting the Great Wall but everything was good during the time. Thank you.
