We were picked up by 9am on the dot by our tour guide Becky and our driver. We had the choice of where we wanted to go first and how we wanted our day to be. We chose to do the square and city first and then make our way to the wall.

Our experience was amazing! Could not fault the service at all. Becky was an amazing tour guide, very helpful, friendly. Spoke English Incredibly well so we understood everything.

She helped us take photos, gave us advise and made us feel very comfortable. Not to forget how great our driver was. He drove safely and managed to get us everywhere with enough time to look around.

Also January is a great time to come. Everything was not busy and we could look around in peace.

Would definitely recommend!!!

Anson was super insightful and gave a lot of history on The Great Wall and China. He also knew so many interesting facts about Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. He made the entire day very enjoyable.

The tour of the great wall, tiananmen square and the forbidden city wouldn’t have been as great as it was if we hadn’t had Anson as our tour guide! He was very knowledgeable about chinese history and my friends and i learned a lot from him. He was able to watch over the group and went above and beyond to make sure everyone’s needs were met. Overall, the experience was amazing :)

I highly recommend Lucy as your tour guide! She is incredibly knowledgeable on Chinese history, politics and economics. With topics ranging from Qing dynasty customs to current Chinese economic policies to daily life in the hutongs, Lucy was able to respond thoughtfully to all of our questions. Lucy's sweet and easygoing personality made her easy to connect with and she was the best guide we've ever had!

The day was scheduled well and our guide Anson gave us enough time to rest and play! Loved the walk Anson suggested, and also the food he prepared/ordered for us for lunch. He made sure that all the allergies and personal dietary options were met. We arrived at the Square a little late, but was awesome because there were less people. Ultimately, it was a great tour and I enjoyed hearing the stories from history.

I with my friend visited Beijing on transit and booked tour which covered Mutianyu Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City. Lucy made our tour so easy and relaxing. She very well gave us information about each place's history and its importance. Lucy got thorough knowledge about tour and her communication skill is excellent. This tour is highly recommended if visiting Beijing.

As I only had two days in Beijing, I booked this tour in the UK via the Amex travel service. This was to give me some sort of assurance that I would have a reasonable tour experience especially as it was my first visit to Beijing.

I was not disappointed in anyway and from the formal confirmation the tour company night before when I checked in to the hotel to the professional and on time pick up in the morning from the Hotel Foyer everything had been organised professionally.
The itinerary of the sites to be visited were the ones that come to most peoples minds and certainly on my list i.e. The Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Tiannamen Square. This tour covered them all but at a pace that was dictated by you, in a comfortable air conditioned vehicle with an extremely knowledgeable, personal and professional guide. All admission tickets etc were paid for and the tour organised for when it was less busy and crowded at certain sites such as the Great Wall and a very tasty lunch at a very good restaurant.

Lucy as the guide was brilliant, extremely knowledgeable, able to take any question but bring history and politics easily up to date. She has an excellent command of English, a very polite and courteous manner and a good sense of humor.

If you have limited time in Beijing and really want to see the main sites in a comfortable vehicle with your own driver and extremely knowledgeable and courteous tour guide then I would definitely recommend this tour package and if possible ask for Lucy to be your guide.

We had one day in Beijing and this tour made the most of that time. Anson, our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, and spoke excellent English. We visited on a national holiday during which the crowds would be much heavier than normal and our guide was conscientious enough to reach out to see if we would be willing to start earlier in the day to get ahead of the crowds and traffic. The Wall was amazing, the information and history provided was invaluable, and he gave us shopping advice as well.
The lunch was at a local restaurant on the way back to Beijing and was FANTASTIC! He called ahead and ordered dishes with a little less spice according to our tastes.
The tour of Tianamen Square and the Forbidden City is something that you should not miss. Our guide and driver made this a full and rewarding day.

I write this review while I am in the taxi to the airport, still with a big smile on my face. I do a lot of tours, basically all over the planet, but never go through the hassle of writing a review.... except today:

I had such a great day, really well
organized and professionally executed by Juliet, my guide. Everything was so smooth and nicely prepared. She is fluent in English and knows a lot about a lot, understands how people with other cultural backgrounds might see things from a different perspective, which made our conversations pretty enjoyable and the learning experience very efficient.

Oh and she knows where to get great coffee!
