We went in November, so it was pretty cold in the morning, with the early start. It does take a bit of time to pick up all the tourists, but once everyone was in, the tour went like clockwork. The guide was knowledgeable. I do think the Forbidden City tour is a bit rushed though. Lunch was pretty good. Loved the Great Wall experience! The final foot massage stop seemed more like a scam, so that was a let down...Jade factory was good for the general knowledge. I think more time should be given to the Forbidden City, rather than wasting time at the traditional medicine/foot massage place.

With a lot packed in I will break this down step by step: Pick up - late, I had to run to the main road, drove to another pick up point and then waited over 30 minutes. Was finally dropped 5 minutes walk from Tiananmen Square (my Hotel was only 5 minutes away - nearly 2 hours wasted) Tiananmen - disappointing unless you want to visit the mausoleum. We didn’t walk around any of it. Forbidden Palace - huge and impressive but no chance to go inside anywhere. The guide knowledgeable and organised (as he was throughout) Jade Factory - just an excuse to sell you something Lunch - fine and as you would expect Great Wall - it is impossible not to be impressed. However walking up is not an option, we were told for safety reasons but there wouldn’t be enough time for most people to walk up and back. £11 for cable car increases the tour cost by 30% Overall - OK and not bad value for money. Good if you want to tick a lot of boxes in one day. Be aware though that even using the cable car you need to be reasonably fit to do this tour.

I had an occasion to visit China, its two great cities, Beijing & Shanghai. I booked for the services of a tour company viz.Tour China @ China.com. I am writing this review to applaud their services. I had trepidation of the agency's genuineness as I was booking online from India but their assurance that payment may be made after reaching Beijing gave a lot of assurance. After having experienced their total package I wish to note here their professional handling of our tour. They are punctual and have kept their promise in all matters. The hotels selected for us were of high standard, the vehicles that carried us excellent and I have only praise for them excepting for the guides' communication in English. They are proficient in the language but their Chinese accent came in the way, difficult to understand a little. This could not have been helped anyway. During our visit we found Beijing and Shanghai amazing, with the peoples' sense of discipline, punctuality, duty consciousness and hygiene sense.

The tour started off with mr lee the tour guide rushing us and everybody after we got pick up. mr lee was rude and pushy with every one on the bus. We felt like we were rushed through Tienanmen square and the forbidden city with not enough time to take pictures. mr lee did not have any information on local landmarks as we drove by. mr lee was rude, pushy and rushy all day at all attractions. At the jade factory a couple on the tour wanted to buy some his & her jade jewelry but mr lee put the kibosh to it by saying come on now are get left. mr lee is not a tour guide but he is a cattle rustler and is insensitive to the tour group. The destinations were great , The tour guide mr lee was not. AVOID mr lee AT ALL COST
