    Good experience seeing so much of Beijing and the Great Wall all in 2 days. It's a perfect way to do your 72 hour visa. The guide, Cactus, was very helpful.

    We were indeed a small group. I was amazed at the way the chauffeur and guide could predict the exact times when we would be picked up in the midst of heavy traffic. I would have liked more information from the guide. I had read quite a bit before going and I felt the guide fell short in his descriptions, I was waiting for some inside story that never came. However, I did not sense the same interest and curiosity from my fellow tourists so maybe the guide kept it short to accommodate the group. He answered my questions but did not expand further. That being said, he was friendly, respectful and punctual.

    Excellent 2 day small group tour. We only had total of 6 people on day 1 and 3 on day 2. Susie was our guide and she was very nice and informative, Mr Joe our driver. Had lunch and 2 different restaurants and the food was great. Couldn't fault this tour at all and would highly recommend it.

    This was an excellent tour - well worth the money. Our guide was Smile from Chinahighlights.com and she was very friendly and helpful. Her English was really good and we had no problems understanding her. We were a small group of 7 people so she gave us individual attention and answered all our questions. The Forbidden City was very crowded but we had individual head sets so it was easy to hear everything the guide was saying. Lunch was provided on both days and they were family style authentic lunches which we all enjoyed. At the Great Wall, we used the chair lift to go up and the toboggan to come down and we were given almost 2 hours of free time to hike. It was a long day but well worth it. The second day was as per the schedule as well and we finished around 4pm. No shopping stops and no sales pitch. Definitely recommend.

    Excellent tour! Only 2 of us plus guide MandySyau Syau. Mandy is very knowledgeable and gave us a great commentary whilst indulging our whims for photos and diversions. She looked after us very well, making sure we didn't get lost but giving freedom. Meals were excellent and I still want the recipe for the potato and eggplant dish in Mutianyu. She was adaptable with the itinery, working around weather issues that may otherwise have stopped us visiting the Great Wall. As it was, we jagged excellent weather for the wall and got some great photos and brilliant memories with Mandy and the tour. Can't recommend it highly enough. The only thing that would have made it at all better would be better visibility from the vehicles. I am fascinated by the suburbs and life in China so a great view from the cars would have been the icing on the cake. Thanks Mandy Syau syau

    I have been very lucky to visited quite a few places around the world, but I have to admit, that this tour was one of the best I have experienced. Rock our guide made the tour enjoyed and very interesting. You get to visit all the major sites around Beijing. on the first day there was a maximum of five people and day two only two of us. The first day was the best with the Forbidden City and the Great Wall which is absolutely amazing, an experience I will never forget. The second day was interesting but the weather wasn't so good so you could enjoy the Summer Palace as perhaps you would have done say later in the year when the weather was better. The advantage of visiting in March is that there is not so many tourists so it is not a scrum to get to see everything, we practically had the wall to ourselves. Lunch was included on both days and water too. The lunch was very authentic and very enjoyable, Rock made sure you were happy and fine all the time. His English was excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour.

    We were in Beijing for only two days and this was a great way to see as much as we could. I liked the small tour size, which made a huge difference. The mutianyu wall wasn't crowded at all and it was awesome to not waste time by taking the cable car up and back. The forbidden city was extremely crowded even though it was a rainy day. I can't image dealing with the crowds on a sunny day. 2 of us actually got lost from the group which was a little scary because there were thousands of people. The tour guide was able to find us and bring us back to the group. The lunches included were a sandwich meal at subway and the next day was a traditional Chinese restaurant. We didn't mind subway, because the food can be interesting sometimes, so subway was safe for us. Be prepared for the restrooms that might shock a first time American to China. All in all I would definitely do this tour again to get another great overview of Beijing in a short amount of time. I do wish the days could have been flip flopped based on the weather as it would have been nicer to see the wall with sunshine instead of rainy.
