Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Overall a good day tour. Our guide William picked us up with his driver at our hotel, and we went directly to Tiananmen Square. We had a private driver and we were the only ones on the tour, so we never needed to wait for parking or for anybody else. This was very convenient and worth the expense, as car travel is very time consuming in Beijing.

    After Tiananmen Square, we walked directly to the Forbidden City. Then our driver picked us up and we had lunch on the way to the Great Wall (fee not included). It took 2 hours to get back from the wall to the hotel. All the experience was smooth save for the usual Beijing traffic.

    William is a full time tour guide, so he was very knowledgeable about the history of China and relevant events which happened at the tour destinations. He even drew out a detailed map for us by hand to show the location of the Great Wall and the reason why it was built at that latitude. William also said he specializes in foreign tours, which makes sense because his English was good.

    For any tour in general, especially in countries where English is not the first language, I recommend you pick a tour agency which employs full time rather than part time tour guides, as I have found the quality of the tours to be much better.

    Note that the Forbidden City and Great Wall are not wheelchair friendly. Expect a decent amount of uphill walking on the Great Wall if you wish to visit tower 20 (recommended).

    Overall a positive experience worth the time and money. However I will likely not tour these locations again in the near future, because I think once is enough for these types of historical tours.

    Autumn is the best time of year to be outside in Beijing so I decided to check out the Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven since they’re both all outdoors. My guide was Anson again (I had him for the Forbidden City tour) and he was just as awesome and knowledgeable as last time. The driver also spoke great English and both communicated really well from when I booked the tour until it was over. Overall great time and highly recommended.

    My daughter and I had the pleasure of having Qing as our tour guide. We had a great experience. Qing was very knowledgeable and added funny commentary to engage my 9 year old daughter, whom is not interested in History (yet)! We learned a lot about Chinese history and culture, with the added benefit of being allowed to take ample time to take a multitude of pictures. Qing has hosted this tour for many years, so she provided us with tips to take the most flattering shots in this historical venue. I would definitely recommend Qing when taking this tour. We will remember this experience forever.

    It was fantastic and magical all st once! The place has an ancient energy very unique with a story to tell around each corner. Walls are huge! The most was frozen as temp was minus plus the snow had been cleaned away which created a different feeling totally. Loved the experience and will go back next year to see what we ran out of time to see

    Kevin was a great guide during my trip to Mutianyu section of the Great Wall! I was alone, so it was a private trip and he was so kind to take great pictures with this talent and patience :) He speaks fluent english and helps you a lot also for other tips in Beijing. I will definitely visit the other sections with him.

    Sherry did a fantastic job showing us some of the best and most important sights in Beijing. She had already booked tickets in advance and was able to help navigate us through various gates and QR codes, which made the tour much smoother, and she was extremely knowledgeable, interesting, and friendly. Seeing these sights was at least twice as enjoyable because she was there to explain them and make conversation with us. I strongly recommend a tour with Sherry. We had a great time at Christmas because of her.

    This tour was exceptional. Qing was very knowledgeable and funny. We enjoyed listening to her a lot, as she did not talk about the historic events as a series of numbers. She rather told stories.

    Basically a bus ride to the Mutianyu great wall site. Guides were friendly and helpful but you should view this largely as an easy way to get to the site where you explore by yourself.

    This was the best way to spend our 15 hour layover in Beijing! Tony texted very clear, step-by-step instructions for how to get through the Beijing airport and what documents we needed to get our 24 hour visa. Everything was very quick and easy since we were doing all of this in the middle of the night when there were no crowds (our flight arrived at 1am). Then, Tony picked us up promptly at 6:30am at a coffee shop in the airport. We came from Thailand and were not prepared for the cold weather, but Tony brought nice, warm coats for us. Thank God!!! It was so freezing, I don’t think we would’ve made it through the day without those coats. We were exhausted from being up all night traveling, so Tony invited us to recline our seats and shut our eyes during the hour long drive to the Great Wall. When we arrived, Tony knew all the best places for photo-ops and took lots of beautiful pictures that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Then, as a bonus after the Great Wall, he took us to an authentic Chinese tea ceremony. This was such an unexpected and memorable experience. We ended up buying lots of tea and unique souvenirs here. Lastly, after a beautiful drive through the countryside, Tony took us to an authentic Chinese restaurant for lunch and helped us navigate the menu. The food was unbelievable! We arrived back at the airport promptly to catch our flight home. If you have a long layover in Beijing, I couldn’t recommend this excursion enough. Book it and ask for Tony!!

    We had an INCREDIBLE time with Lena on our Catherine Lu tour of Beijing! Lena was a fantastic tour guide, really knew her Beijing history, and pivoted our tour based on our interests. She was great with scheduling the trip - the order of events and timing was really great! She was even supportive of going along with us when we requested more time hiking on the great wall (which was absolutely exhausting!). Catherine Lu tours was super accommodating and communicative. Will tour with them in China again!

    We had a great experience with this tour company, and Jack as our driver and tour guide. He was early at the hotel for pickup, fluent in English, and had a comfortable minivan with plenty of space. He gave us just the amount of information and guidance we were looking for, while giving us plenty of time to explore the Great Wall on our own. He had great advice for avoiding the crowds and the best views. Would absolutely use this tour company again.

    Mark was great coordinating my trip in Beijing. I had flight delays and with last minute notice he was kindly able to rearrange my pick up from the airport. The driver was on time all scheduled days. The private tour to the Great Wall and other tour sites was wonderful with his English speaking driver. Sorry can't remember his name. I would highly recommend Mark for any future travels in Beijing. He will make your trip stress free.Thank you again. Rita!

    I had the most memorable time in this short trip around Beijing and the Great Wall. I not only got a feel for the sights and sounds of Beijing but also had the company of the most friendly and knowledgeable tour guid Jin. On our bus journeys we discussed the highlights of the 6000+ year history of China. Jin was very patient, considerate, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Learnt a lot from this trip. Would recommend anyone to this trip if you have very limited time.
