What people are saying about Forbidden City

Everything went well, uncomplicated and smoothly.

If we had installed wechat on your smartphones we could have easly booked tickes once we arrived at the forbidden city or just via cash. But to save time and since we were not able to forcast how many people would be around that specific day it was good to have the tickets booked beforehand to be on the save side not spending much time at the entrance but just showing our passports... Perfect deal!

Good guide who speaks very good english and was pleasant in contact.

After the visit for which we hired our guide he advised us for our trip the rest of the day which was of great help.

Fantastic value and very entertaining guide

Fantastic value. Transfers worked well with. Good drop off point at end of your arranged with driver.

Awesome experience that inverts any perception about Man and Nature

I have to admit that when I booked the tour I was full of expectations, because I've always wanted to walk on the Great Wall (at least) once in my life and the combo with the Summer Palace seemed to fit perfectly that clue of history and emotions. And I'm really excited to say that everything went really great, from the trip itself (smart driver, comfortable atmosphere, complimentary water refilled at every stop) to the guide (Vivian, extremely caring and friendly - and she can also take wonderful pics with the smartphone!) and of course to both venues (Great Wall, in particular, was literally breathtaking: I still don't understand how *human* people could have built it using only their hands). Even the lunch was good in a traditional - although a bit touristy - restaurant suggested by Vivian, with some tasty dishes and a funny atmosphere. Highly recommended to spend one of the best days of your life.

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!
