          Great time!
          I had a fantastic experience on Saturday with Lucy and on Sunday with Edward. Lucy picked me up from my hotel at 6 pm and we saw a number of different places, including Tiananmen Square, The Place, and Hutong Street (loved Hutong Street). On Sunday, Edward picked me up at 9 am and we went to Temple of Heaven, Ming Dynasty Tombs and a jade factory! Edward shared the history and relevant background info throughout the entire tour , which was made for a great learning experience. I will definitely be booking another tour in the future. This is so fun to do when traveling solo.

          Great two walls to see
          Well organized tour led by friendly and funny tour guide Miko. We were briefed on Great Wall history as well as Beijing. Weather was perfect. Both Walls were stunning and more beautiful than pictures! Also driver and car were both great. Special thanks to Miko for keeping the kid entertained in the car; and making us safe all along the tour — yes, there are steep steps to climb the wall.

          Great tour with even greater guide
          We had a really great time exploring the landmarks of Beijing with our amazing guide Anson who was so kind to wait for us even though we were more than 30 minutes late to the tour due to heavy traffic. Anson showed us some popular as well as local places we have enjoyed a lot 😊 Many thanks for showing us that beer brewery, we had so much fun 😁

          Top quality tour and guide
          We really loved our tour. Lucy was a great guide who made the Summer Palace come alive for us - full of history and interesting facts. She also speaks superb English. We had visited before but she took us to see lots of new t parts of this vast site and we had a two stage boat trip. Very punctual pick up from the hotel in a super smart comfortable car. Really enjoyed the whole thing.

          Memorable, Informative, and Fun!
          The tour to Mutianyu and Huanghuacheng Water Great Wall is a trip we will never forget. The Great Wall in and of itself is a wonder to behold, as one of the world’s UNESCO Heritage sites, it holds an immense amount of history in each and every brick. Although we knew some information about the Great Wall and of China’s history, we further learned even more through our tour guide. Andy, our guide, was very well-versed in the history of China and shared with us more knowledge about the country’s thousand long existence, knowledge that one wouldn’t typically find in a textbook. He also shared with us various trivia and even helped me understand some parts of the language such as the pronunciation of certain words and the like. Moreover, Andy himself was very friendly, warm and welcoming; he kindly offered us help and advice towards the end of our tour on where to go and what to do in the city. He was fun and outgoing as well as informative and educational. Overall, our trip to Mutianyu and Huanghuacheng Water Great Wall will forever hold a special place in our hearts as a memory to look back on.

          Highly recommended tour of the Forbidden City - express but personal :)
          Had an enjoyable morning, thanks to my tour guide Susan who showed me the Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. To begin with, the tour saved me from queuing up for the tickets, which would have taken at least an hour. Susan picked me up from the hotel, and we quickly built a rapport along the way to the landmarks. She was friendly, and offered to take some photos as we cut through the Tiananmen Square to enter the Forbidden City via the south gate. I enjoyed listening to the history and anecdotes of the China emperors. Susan kept the tour interesting by making me guess some of the answers rather than plainly telling the facts. Thanks Susan for making it a memorable tour for me. Highly recommended!

          Sweet Summer Palace Trip
          The Summer Palace/Botanical Garden tour was an amazing experience and a great way to wrap up my try to China. I couldn't have had a bette tour guide than Susan. She was very knowledgeable and allowed me to enjoy each local at my own pace while answering all the questions I had. We took the boat tour out on the lake at the Summer Palace. It was very nice but honestly too short, I would have liked to see that be longer. The Botanical Garden was very lovely, very large with no way to see all it had to offer in just a couple hours. This would be a great place to spend a full day just walking around and enjoying all of the beautiful horticulture. All in all, I could have spent a day at each stop, the Summer Palace and the Botanical Garden. if I must pick my favorite part of the day, it would have to be the green bean ice cream :-) A great experience with a great tour guide! I will definitely book more trips when I return to China!

          Amazing & Joyfull 😍
          One of the best tours we have been on !!!! We had an amazing time at the great wall and enjoyed a very delicious authentic chinese meal. Our guide Miko did an amazing job. He helped us from the begining to the very end and even kept in touch until we reach our home country safely. He took amazing photos of us and selected the best food for us to enjoy. We had an amazing time. Highly recommend this tour. Five stars for our guide Miko.

          Not to be missed if you visit Beijing
          I highly highly recommend this tour. Lucy was amazing and so knowledgeable on the Temples we visited. The history and the stories were absolutely fascinating and definitely worth doing the tour and walking through the streets and talking about the history of the area was amazing. We finished our tour with a Dim Sum dinner that Lucy ordered and everything was out of this world. I highly recommend this tour.

        My daughter and I had a wonderful morning with Jimmy. He met us at our hotel and took us to the closest subway station where he explained the how to use the subway. Then he took us to visit both temples, answering all of our questions, not only about the Temples but about Beijing, Chinese history, religion, and anything we thought to ask. He helped us find our next destination and made a suggestion for lunch which was wonderful.

        Our tour guide Anson gave us a wonderful tour of the Temple of Heaven and the Lama Temple. He promptly met us in our hotel lobby and accompanied us on the subway in Beijing. His commentary on both sites was interesting. He recommended a place to eat that was very good. I would not hesitate to book this tour with Anson.

        My boyfriend and I booked this tour on our first day in Beijing as we wanted to also get to grips with the Metro (turns out each journey works out at around 50p and everything is in English also. Just be prepared for the security checks at each stop but its just a formality). Jimmy our tour guide met us at the hotel lobby early and was very helpful and funny, we really enjoyed his company and was very open about answering all of our questions throughout the day. He had lots of knowledge regarding the Lama Temple and Temple of Heaven, I felt the tour had a good pace also and to speed up the journey home Jimmy took us together onto a local bus back to the hotel. It was a great introduction to Beijing and would definitely recommend. Hopefully you will get Jimmy as a guide!

        I met Sophia in the lobby of my hotel. She promptly took me to the nearby Metro station where she instructed me on how to use the system. We then continued and had a great tour of Llama and Heavenly Temples. Terrific explanation and history were recounted as we journeyed through Beijing. The tour was well paced. I recommend it highly. The use of the metro became invaluable for the rest of the trip. It is the most efficient and easiest way to get around a very crowded city. English was perfect. Thanks so much Sophia!

        This tour offered so much. Not only did we see the beautiful temples, but we learned to ride the subway and took a local bus. Lucy, our guide, was so knowledgeable and helpful. Everything worked just as described. A great way to spend a half day in Beijing!

We learned so much including how to use the subway, all about the temples, Religions in China, about Chinese New Year, and lots of other awesome cultural info!! Would absolutely recommend this trip for anyone interested in the temples
