Great way to hit the tourist sites fast!

This tour was really interesting and hit all the major tourist attractions in one day while also providing some more cultural attractions in the form of jade and tea. Since I was on a tight schedule it was excellent to be able to see it all and still have enough time to enjoy the city on my own before leaving. Our tour guide was knowledgeable which brought the depth of history to the places we visited. One recommendation: get the cable car ticket. If you don't get it now, you'll end up buying it when you're there because otherwise it takes like an hour of uphill walking to reach anywhere nice on the Great Wall.

Good overall experience. We started in the forbidden city, guide explained enough and was gentile. We stopped at Tiananmen Square and I didn’t even noticed. Food was surprisingly good and a lot. The spot for the Great Wall is very good, crowded but not crazy. Time spent there was about two hours and I think that’s about enough. Traffic was really heavy on our way back. We stopped at a really nice tea house. Driver was a bit rude in his driving as you could expect in China. In general it was a good experience with a solid tour guide with good English and good spots.

It was a very long day (13+hrs), not helped by a massive traffic jam on the way home. We missed the tea house as a result. But Wilson was a great guide, kept us moving all day to pack everything in. Could have spent less time at Jade Factory and lunch and more at either Forbidden City or Great Wall but when you only have limited time, this ticks the boxes. The van is pretty cramped with 13 people in the back. Even the security guard at the Wall was surprised how many people were in the back!

Great tour, great value! Highly recommend!

We happened to hit Beijing during the Dragon Boat Festival, so Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City where very crowded, but we still enjoyed the sights. The Great Wall was amazing. Getting the cable car option is highly recommended. I’ve been to Badaling Great Wall, but I liked this (Mutianyu) site much better. The guide, Sabrina was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting facts about the sites we visited. Overall, 5-star tour!

Great Wall, tiananmam and forbidden city

Victor was a fantastic guide. Spoke great English and had a lot of history to share about China. We went on 15th Jan and I must say -11c was a bit cold in the AM before the sun came out. But much more pleasant during the day! Rug up if you go in winter! The mini van was clean and fresh and the driver was safe. Lunch was lovely. Overall a fantastic day and a great price!
