What to expect
After pickup from your central Beijing hotel, set off through the city’s bustling streets by climate-controlled coach. On route, hear about Beijing’s history, and listen as your guide shares information about China’s culture. Stop first at the Forbidden City, near Tiananmen Square. The world’s largest historical palatial complex, this massive walled compound dates from the 15th century, and was home to 14 Ming and 10 Qin emperors. Tour the main pavilions, halls and courtyards — the complex houses 800 buildings — and admire the classical Chinese architecture as your guide shares tales of the royals who lived and ruled from here. Next, continue to the Temple of Heaven, a beautiful imperial spiritual complex built 600 years ago. Admire the religious buildings and see the magnificent Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, where the emperors prayed for fruitful harvests. After a set-menu Chinese lunch at a restaurant, indulge in some retail therapy at Chinese medicine outlets and the nearby Pearl Market. Then, travel to the Summer Palace. Created in 1750 as an imperial summertime retreat, this masterpiece of Chinese landscaping blends intricate pavilions, halls, bridges, lakes and rivers. Enjoy a leisurely stroll to admire the ornamental gardens, buildings, and other architectural gems, and then finish your tour with a central hotel drop-off.

AWESOME!
Mar 2019
Overall this tour was awesome! We enjoyed visiting all the different historical sites but could of done without all the stops at the pearl warehouse, the jade warehouse the herbal medicine place oh wait... the foot massage part of that was awesome! Yes there is a lot of walking but I think manageable because you also get time to sit and rest here and there. I think the only issue we had was because our Hotel was outside the three ring pick up we had to meet our tour in town at another hotel That part was ok. the part that was annoying was our tour guide was suppose to call our hotel and let us know where to meet her and when we finally got to our hotel at 10pm we still hadn't received any info on where to meet and our tour was the next day! So after trying to communicate with hotel staff (which was a major fail) I had to make a phone call to the tour company which cost me $10! We finally was able to connect with our tour guide after a few lousy phone connections and finally got a email with instruction to the meeting place. That was after midnight and we had to be up by 5am to meet up with our group and we already hadn't slept for 24hrs! So needless to say we didn't get much sleep! only think i'd recommend is getting your meet up point if possible before getting to china!

Very crowded.
May 2019
This was actually one of the least enjoyable days of our tour. I wanted to go here as this tour included Tiannamin Square. This was such of a historical place, how could you miss it. It was very crowded and a long day with tons of walking (be prepared)! I found this to be quite boring if it wasn’t for the historical significance. With all this said, I am very glad I went on this tour, however I probably would not do it again. All the different areas, just seem to be repetitive. And I fell it’s the type of thing you have to see, Np but do not need to see again.

Best tour ever.
I have traveled extensively and have never had a better tour guide. Cactus met us on time. She was knowledgeable and pleasant. She went out of her way to explain and show us the sites. Lunch was delicious and plentiful. She knew all the best places for photos. But the best thing about her was her ability to make you feel at home. I can’t say enough about Cactus. She was excellent. If you are ever in China she’s the one to request.

Fun and Informative!
Nov 2019
Thank you Sally for being such a wonderful tour guide! She and our driver Mr. Xu took great care of my friend and I during the tour. Sally shared knowledge about not only the sites we saw, but also about Chinese culture. She also knew great spots for photos. It was lots of fun being able to converse with her in both Mandarin and English. We were able to stop at a tea shop to take part in a tea ceremony also along the tour, which was a great experience. I would recommend this tour!

A good overview of Beijing

An early start to beat the queues. Tina our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out all the key sites and even advised the females in the group where to find the European style toilets.
A long day but well worth gettingup early in the morning.

Good Value
Jul 2019
Trip would have been more enjoyable on a cooler day. Our guide's English was not great and he was difficult to understand at places with a lot of noise. Lunch was mediocre. Foot massage at the Chinese Medicine school was a welcome break. The stop at the pearl store was boring. Appreciated the hotel pick up and drop off. Still happy we went.

Dear Raymond, Thank you very much for your feedback and meanwhile we feel sorry to learn that your trip was not met to your expectations. It is during the tourism peak season in Beijing now, and there're much crowds at the spots. It would be better if you choose to take part in our mini group tours or take a private tour, and you can understand your guide better with less passengers in the group. Simple Chinese lunch is included for this coach tour. Some of our customers love Chinese dishes, which may not 100% satisfy every travelers in the group. As an explanation for part of your experience, coach group tours usually go to areas that are more commercialized. It was intended for those who have limited budget. We sincerely thank you for your detailed feedback from which we realize that customers choosing this product may not be able to have a good experience. We will feedback and communicate with our supplier to improve or even remove this product. Trippest Customer Care Team inquiry@trippest.com
