I did this trip last year and I still remember how well organized it was. If you have just a stop over, this is the best solution.
We enjoyed and highly recommend the Beijing Essential Full-Day Tour. Our tour guide was amazing, spoke good English and really made our trip enjoyable and educational as well.
It was amazing. We went to the wall and experienced different sites. Since it was not tourist season aswell, it was not packed. Highly recommended. Its a nice way to experience Beijing when you are travelling by yourself
Exceptional Day Tour!
I was expecting to be in a mini-van but got picked up at the Marriott City Wall Hotel by the tour guide,Michael, and his driver,Xie, in a stylish sedan.Thus, I was given a private tour for the entire day 20th October,2017.
The highlights were:
1. Tiananmen Square and this coincided with the 5 yearly Congress, so the decoration of the Square was striking.The friendliness of the thousands of Chinese tourists was memorable.
2.The Forbidden City:a very long walk through the entire historical site:perfectly preserved and perfectly clean.
3.The Great Wall: involved a long drive on a beautiful expressway.Xie's driving was exceptional.I was given free time to explore and walk the Great Wall.The preservation,the width and the height of the Wall is impressive.Once again,the friendliness of the Chinese tourists was highly memorable.
On the Tour we visited a Jade Engraving factory, a Silk factory and a Chinese Tea House.At each of these there was an expectation to buy product:this is my only negative comment.However, these visits ensured the cultural experience was complete.
The Tour lasted almost 11 hours and the treatment I received from Michael and Xie made the Tour perfect: the knowledge they shared,their manner and their effort to make the day memorable.
This Day Tour stands out compared to others I have done in other major cities.My impression of Beijing was thoroughly enriched: this is a City that is vibrant:modern,clean and organised for the huge population who live there.
Noteworthy was the price charged by Viator: much less than similar tours that I had read about,prior to making a decision on which one to choose.
Our tour guy jacky was amazing. Speaks very good English and is willing to answer any questions you may have!!!
The tour was excellent. Our guide was Cynthia and she was amazing. She was full of information and took us through everything and explained the history of it and how it got to where it is now. We went to a silk factory, a jade factory, and a tea ceremony. We also had a great lunch. She explained some of the Chinese symbols to us between visits. I definitely recommend her and the tour. My two friends were also more than happy with the experience
A really enjoyable, busy day. Knowledgable and friendly guide.
Really good tour, Jackie was very knowledgeable and hilarious
