Tiananmen, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven & Summer Palace
- Pickup available
- Duration: 9 hours
We had a small group of tourists during winter so it was a good size to move quickly and explore the highlights of each places. Vik was our guide, fluent in English. The Summer Palace was my favorite and I’m glad that Vik took us to the entrance near the iconic bridge. We were given 1 hour to explore. I would’ve wished it was at least 2 hours coz the land area was so huge. Lunch was good. The coach we used while it’s on time and clean enough, it had a strong smell of cigarette smoke in it. As indicated in the itinerary, there were 2 shopping stops for this tour.
Our guide Yoyo (with cute litte donkey flagpole) was not only great, she was very knowledgefull. History lessons was paired very well. Time was Forbidden as palace was huge with classical cultures while Summer seems beautiful in the lake. Local lunch was nice with its local flavors. Really wish those 2 commercial stops were removed as NONE like it as it really spoil the trip.
Super Cheap trip included with a delicious lunch. Able to see most of the big highlights in Beijing. Though, the tempo is high without much of explantion of the tour guide. Great if youre on a short time notice. Perhaps pick another tour if you want to spend more time at the locations and know more about the background.
It's my first time in Beijing and I enjoyed this tour :) Our tour guide Tina speaks very good English and she explained the history of Chinese culture. Her colleague (i forgot the name) helped me took photos since I'm a solo traveler. I really appreciate it :) Overall, this is a great tour! Highly recommended.
They were so punctual, and we have seen so many thins. Everything was beautiful and the group as well. Love it and well recommended. Emma was lovely! Worth the money as everything is so well organized and you don't need to think of anything. Bravo Emma and the team! Hugsxx
