This tour was fabulous. The small group really made for an intimate experience. The pace was perfect (not too quick, not to slow). We enjoyed all the sites, but our tour guide Eva really made the experience great for us. She was truly fantastic. We got a great sense of the city seeing both new and old tourist sites. Don't book any other tour, this is THE ONE!
Our two day tour of Beijing with William was the highlight of our Asian journey, which included a 10 day Windstar cruise in Japan, 3 days in Beijing and 3 days in Hong Kong. William was extremely knowledgeable, organized, timely and delightful to be with. We learned so much about the fascinating history of the Forbidden City which made it come alive. Tienanmen Square, the Summer Palace and the Great Wall were amazing. He went above and beyond the usual tour by suggesting we see a Kung Fu Show and/or an Acrobat Show and provided the transportation for us as well as accompanying us. It was wonderful and added an extra dimension to this small group 6 people experience.
This was a fleeting visit for us to Beijing. The 2-day small group tour was perfect as it highlighted everything we wanted to see and then some. Our guide, Peter, was without a doubt the best guide I have ever encountered. His English was excellent and his knowledge of this city, its history and general knowledge was beyond compare. He was always punctual, provided water, ensured everyone was happy with the program was able to answer every question asked and offered handy little tips. If you are thinking of a trip to Beijing and can book any of the tours offered you should definitely try and book this one, if possible, with this guide.
That was really an incredible tour. I've never had such a great tour guide as SMILE. She was so nice, informed, cordial, interesting. Just a great person. You could understand her very well. Everything was perfectly prepared. The sightseeing tour was very interesting, not too strenuous, with 2x great lunch. After the tour, SMILE also lovingly cared for us. She organized a kung-fu show, showed us a great restaurant and then took us by taxi to the hotel. I have never experienced this. We really thank SMILE from the heart and will always remember her. See you in Beijing next time.......
Excellent 2 day small group tour. We only had total of 6 people on day 1 and 3 on day 2. Susie was our guide and she was very nice and informative, Mr Joe our driver. Had lunch and 2 different restaurants and the food was great. Couldn't fault this tour at all and would highly recommend it.
Excellent tour! Only 2 of us plus guide MandySyau Syau. Mandy is very knowledgeable and gave us a great commentary whilst indulging our whims for photos and diversions. She looked after us very well, making sure we didn't get lost but giving freedom. Meals were excellent and I still want the recipe for the potato and eggplant dish in Mutianyu. She was adaptable with the itinery, working around weather issues that may otherwise have stopped us visiting the Great Wall. As it was, we jagged excellent weather for the wall and got some great photos and brilliant memories with Mandy and the tour. Can't recommend it highly enough.
The only thing that would have made it at all better would be better visibility from the vehicles. I am fascinated by the suburbs and life in China so a great view from the cars would have been the icing on the cake.
Thanks Mandy Syau syau
The tour was amazing, our guide Eva speak english very good and with the two days you can see the best of Beijing.
I would recommend it, because the price included all the tickets, food, transportation from your hotel.
Eva knows all that you ask and she was very kind and helpfull.
The price quality rate its very good.
This tour is a great introduction to Beijing. It covers many of the landmarks and key photo opportunities described in may guidebooks like Lonely Planet, and Insights. While the descriptions of sites can be improved from an English tourist perspective, Jerry is a young, enthusiastic, helpful and extremely courteous tour guide. I'm sure his skills will only improve with time. I'm used to Chinese English as I've worked with many people from China. I can understand the choice of words well. I can say many of the other tourist in our group have no problem understanding Jerry. I hope to see Jerry in future tours in Beijing.
