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.

If you are short on time in Beijing this is ideal

This tour covered most of the main places to visit in Beijing in one day. Tour guide Jackson was very informative and helpful. There are two stops at a medical centre and perl shop which were made mentioned previously and in reviews. Even though I was expecting them it was not for me and I had no interest in either. I understand its possibly a way to make money, but I would rather pay extra on my ticket to not have these stops and use this time at the sites we were visiting. Other than that the tour was very good and I enjoy it along with the other members of our tour group.

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!

The weather was great, but the transportation could have been better.

Sometimes I felt we were a little rushed, not able to really see everything. Believe this was due to having to make two stops that were not included in the information about what the group would actually see and visit. I am pleased that our group was small. I could not always hear the Guide, especially due to the noise of the vehicle we were being transported in. Overall I was very pleased with this trip. Thank you.

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!
