This was a fantastic tour! Our guide, Olivia, was very knowledgeable, fun, and knew where to take all the best pictures. We loved that it was a small group tour and a driver to take us to each location. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Beijing!!

I was in Beijing for work and only had one free day. Searched quite a bit for the 'right' tour and happy to report that this one delivered. The group was small - ended up being one Australian couple and myself - which was great. We were picked up by a van on time around 8 AM and then headed out to the Forbidden City. Our guide, Tom, was great at providing a great level of commentary and it never felt rushed. We then headed out to the Great wall, which was definite highlight. We had lunch there and in many ways we were behind the morning 'rush' so once we arrived the Great wall, it felt like we had all to ourselves. Again, there was the right balance of 'guidance' and independence. We were given about 1.5 hours to explore the wall on our own, which was perfect. We also lucked out on the weather - given the rain of the previous day, the day was clear and the views were incredible. On the way back, we did hit some traffic typical as folks were returning back from their weekend trips. Plan on this being a full day affair - arrived back at my hotel around 6:30 PM. I would highly recommend this tour if you are short on time and seeking to enjoy Beijing's highlights all in one day. Everything was great - the sites, the lunch, the rhythm of the day, Tom's guidance and the return. Easy and fun!

The tour provides a good shuttle service to the Great Wall and back, at the Wall we had free time to walk around. Information provided by the guide Sara around the Wall was very sparse. The second part of the tour was the forbidden city which we could have done on our own. The guide rushed through the area in 45min without any explanations which was quite frustrating although we would have had sufficient time. Usually you could spend up to 4 hours there. We were also disappointed about the lunch where the guide first suggested to go to Mc Donalds because we don't have much time. I don't book a tour to have McD Food, I was shocked. My recommendation: Don't book this tour but only a Half Day Tour to Great Wall and do the rest on your own.

Spectacular settings from Beijing city to the great walk. Guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. I'm taking out one star because the driver was too agressive and I didn't feel safe. Having said that the car was comfortable. Be prepared to walk a LOT.

This tour was a highlight of my life!! I can't say enough great things about this tour and our guide Rico! HE IS AWESOME!! I wanted to take him back home to Mississippi with us! Rico answered any questions that we had and is very knowledgeable. He explained the significance and history of everything we saw. He was funny and made our day perfect in every way!! Our day started right on time with a pick up from our Beijing hotel. We went to Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, Jingshan Park, then had lunch at a fabulous restaurant before going to the Great Wall. I feel like we had the perfect amount of time at each stop. It was an amazing day! I highly recommend this tour and Rico!!!
