Getting to Temple of Heaven from our hotel was a breeze, and had no trouble meeting up with our guide and other group members. Lots of walking but at a good pace that allowed for photos as well as information sharing. Travelling on the subway to Tiananmen Square was fun. The Forbidden City was fabulous and our guide was great in helping us see the best of this massive site. Lunch there was disappointing and some of the food tasted off. Continued the tour which lasted around 6-7 hours. Major problem at the end when trying to get a taxi back to our hotel and guide advised they didn't really do picks up where the tour finished and suggested getting the subway by ourselves. This felt too overwhelming so we wandered around, got harassed by rickshaw drivers and ultimately took one (at a highly inflated cost) after feeling lost and exhausted. This difficulty with transport needs to be addressed or at least advised prior to the tour as it ultimately soured what was a really good tour.
I was so lucky to be able to do this tour with Vivienne; and even better I was the only person so it was practically a 5 star personnel tour. As the name says it really was an insights and secrets shown tour. Vivienne showed me a side of Beijing, as we walked through all the main attractions, that I would never have been able to see, meet local people, be told the superstitions and the temple protocols, and to be able to understand a China and Beijing that as a tourist, has eluded me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR, AND YOUR LUCK IS IN IF YOU HAVE THE WONDERFUL VIVIENNE AS YOUR GUIDE. EXCELLENT
Splendid Tour covering all the highlights of Beijing. The guide was very knowledgeable and customized the tour to our special requests. No rush at all, highly motivated guide and splendid lunch. What else could one ask for? I definately recommend this tour!
Very friendly guide but in app were wrong GPS coordinations and nobody answer to emails about that.
