        Wonderful Experience
        Lily gave us a very thorough tour. She was very accommodating, even bought us water in the hot weather. She has a lot of knowledge about the Forbidden City. Thank you.

        The best way to visit the Great Wall
        We booked a Private Roundtrip Transfer to Great Wall of China, Mutianyu section via get your guide. Our driver Sun Zhisheng was more than just a driver, he bought our entrance tickets and cable car tickets. He explained everything to us through his very cool translator and gave us all the information we required. He also came up on the cable car and took some pictures for us. The car was spotless and comfortable. We were supplied with delicious snacks and water which was needed in the 30 degree heat. He was super friendly and helped us with everything. He also brought us to have tea and experience a traditional tea ceremony. I would rate this trip and our driver Sun Zhisheng 10/10. Would highly recommend Discover Beijing Tours.

        Great tour with Susan!
        Susan was an amazing tour guide! She was very knowledgeable about Chinese history and all of the sites we saw. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the Forbidden Palace and Temple of Heaven. We also stopped at a tea house instead of the Pearl Market, which I really enjoyed.

        Spectacular view
        We had a great and unique experience with our tour guide Mike and our driver Xia! The service was perfect. We were picked up at the hotel on time. Our tour guide and driver creating us with snack and fruit. We went to summer palace first, the view was great. We then take the ride to Mutianyu Great Wall. It is a breath taking view point that my teenage son was so amazed. We had such a good time here!

        Fantastic Nighttime Beijing with Anson
        This was an amazing tour. Anson and his driver were excellent. I would recommend doing this tour as soon as you get to beijing. it gives you an outstanding overview and helps later planning of your visit here. I surely wish I had done it earlier. All the stops and information was superb There was no rush- we could just take our time. Plus the timings were on point- we got to the Birds Nest just as they turned on the lights-fantastic. Thanks so much to Anson for a very remarkable tour.

        Great tour to Great Wall and summer palace.
        This was a great guided trip. The guide Judy was fantastic and the driver Mr Yu was great. We went to the Great Wall, truly outstanding views, and in the afternoon went to the summer palace. Highly recommend.

        A scenic stroll through Chinese history
        We did many tours in Beijing and this was one of our favorites. Mike was an outstanding tour guide- extremely knowledgeable and friendly with excellent communication skills. The Summer Palace is a beautiful area, and even in the heat of June there’s enough shade to keep you cool. My wife and I loved strolling around the lake admiring the incredible art painted all along the covered corridor- just get ready to have a sore neck from looking up constantly. The Old Summer Palace is more of an Italian ruin, but Mike does a wonderful job explaining what the ruins were like in there heyday. We highly recommend the extra boat ride at the end- it’s a lovey park to see from the water and you will be tired of walking by then!

      This is a truly fun and informative day trip! Our guide Cindy was fantastic, she was very funny and helpful with tips as well as history about our destinations.
      We were picked up from our hotel, had 2hr for climbing on the Great Wall, a delicious buffet lunch, a visit to an authentic Jade retailer and quality souvenir shop, and then a lovely walk around the Summer Palace where Cindy took us to the best photo spots and places with the richest history.
      I absolutely recommend this tour

      The trip with Lucy was amazing! We went to the Mutianyu Great Wall and summer palace. Lucy was so kind, thoughtful, considerate, and knowledgeable. She made the trip significantly more enjoyable and pleasant. This was a highlight of our China experience. I would highly recommend booking this tour and asking for Lucy! We also appreciated her flexibility with my friend and my changing requests as we saw new tourist attractions within the summer palace.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion. Our guide Lucy was amazing. She spoke impeccable English and gave us excellent insights. She allowed us to take as much time as we wanted. On top of that she held great conversation. At the end of the trip, we were practically best friends. Lunch was delicious and the tea tasting was a whole event.

      We booked a small group tour but it ended up being a private tour with a new car as we were the only group. Jessie, our guide was lively and informative. She encouraged us to go on the chairlift and toboggan which was a fun experience. We enjoyed the tour and had a lovely time.

      I initially had a difficult experience getting out of Beijing Airport. Upon arrival, took 4 hours after landing to secure a 24 hour temp visa. Wasn’t a great first impression. I thought I had to cancel my tour since I wasn’t going to be there in time for the 8:30 pickup. Support was really amazing on email and sympathetic of my situation. They told me not to worry and the driver will wait until I get everything sorted. But I was given a heads up that I couldn’t do both of the attractions due to time constraints. It has been a lifelong dream to see the Great Wall, so I elected to make sure I got to visit there no matter what. The company honored a small Refund for not being able to visit Summer Palace :( which was appreciated. The moment I arrived at the hotel, Susan my awesome personable guide and the driver made me felt at ease from the very start. Although I was very jet lagged I was too excited. Had a great conversation with the bunch about American movies and Chinese culture. We made a pit stop to a local lunch spot (which was included), food was delicious! Probably the best freshest Chinese food I ever had. Soon after we head over to the Great Wall. Had to take a brief bus transfer over to the cable cars, the ride up the car was amazing in itself. So simple compared to what type of effort (I can’t imagine) it took to climb and build 2,000+ years ago. Soon as the cable car opened and I took my first step onto the Great Wall, Magic was in the air. The views, the people, the history...Pictures nor words don’t do justice. My guide Susan was a trooper walking the harder part with me. But she also let me climb ahead and waited around (held onto my backpack) until I returned. She Took great photos for me... I’ll cherish the photos and experience forever. Highly recommend!

      We went for day trip to Mutianyu great wall in Feb.

      Although we booked a small group tour, we were the only people so ended up with private tour.

      The weather was great. Our tour guide Jimmy was great - knowledge, perfect english.
      He managed to get us there before all the queues and so we got the wall to ourself!
      We took the ski lift up and tobbogan down.

      Lunch was great, authentic and nothing too weird.

      The driver was prompt (no waiting around), car clean, with bottled water available.

      Summer palace was beautiful, and our guide took us to all the key areas.

      Would strongly recommend the tour and our guide Jimmy.

      We had an awesome trip to Beijing. All thanks to our amazing tour guide Linda. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows very well how to navigate the crowd. We toured with her for 2days and she showed us around Great wall, Summer Palace, Forbidden City and Lama temple. Being peak rush season, Linda made sure we leave early and avoid the crowds. She was very sensitive to the fact with two small kids she looked for shorted possible routes and we don't waste time lining up for tickets. We also saw an acrobatics show and I must say here Linda really went out of her way to get us the best seats ever. She made our trip very memorable, comfortable, simple and hassle free. She is extremely good in English and highly recommend her. She is the best!

      This tour is a fantastic choice if you have a day spare in Beijing. This section of the wall was different to see the other parts of the Great Wall that we saw. The guide knew a lot about the history of the Summer Palace and this was nice to look at.
