This was my second day with tour guide Sophia and this time we were taking in the Summer Palace, Quianmen Street and the Temple of Heaven, to name just a few. I was the only person on this day's tour and I had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable visit. Sophia is very knowledgeable about the city's history and also helped me try to find birthday cards for my nephew's birthday. I had a really great day. Thank you, Sophia.

Sunny was excellent , knowledgeable, warm and went far beyond guiding the tour by helping several of us out with other Beijing questions and even escorting me by subway to my next event
The tour is a great way to see the highlights of Beijing if you have a short amount of time
Highly recommended

I chose China Highlights based on a recommendation from a friend who went to Beijing a few months ago.

The service is excellent and extremely well organised with a friendly guide and driver. It isn't the cheapest tour, but it is safe and well managed.

Whether you're travelling in a group; solo (joining a group) or as a couple etc I'd recommend joining a group tour as its a lot of fun meeting others from across the world on a day out.

The 1-day is an absolute must, but you if you have time do the other tours (which are multi-day) as well.

Hi Joel S We're glad that you took the recommendation of your friend and found our services to be excellent and well organised. When you're traveling on your own, it's good to know that you enjoyed our small group tour, as it makes traveling more fun meeting with others and sharing the same interest in exploring the sites.

I usually prefer self explore whenever come to travelling.
However, since I only got short days in Beijing, hence, I choose the one day tour to avoid the crowd & traffic jam. I searched like crazy on Tripadvisor to find the perfect excellent review tour, and this came to me.
I was concern about the price, it's quite expensive comparing other tour company.
However, the reviews persuade me to make a try.
When I register, I don't have credit card neither Paypal account, I was worry that I couldn't have slot in the tour on that day, because maximum is 6 people.
Hence, I wechat to the company, they are friendly & professional in offering me paying by cash upon arrival.
I was amazed that when I checked in the hotel, the tour guide Ms Nancy Niu already called to hotel & giving me message as reminder. Such a wonderful preparation!
In the morning, the trip should start at 8:30 AM, but to avoid the crowd & traffic, the bus came earlier at 7:30 AM.
It's so great that Ms Nancy's English is fluently!!!!!
She told us the history of TianMen, Forbidden city, Great Wall via headset which is very useful & convenience (like bluetooth), we can go around to take picture, but still can connect with her, hear her voice, we don't scare to be lost among many people.
Moreover, we saved a lot of time, no need long queuing under sun, skip the crowd, directly entry to Forbidden City like VIP guest which I felt kinda cool ~
We had a lot fun, we are like friend, we ate a lot of nice food, we took a lot of pictures as well
After the trip, she recommended me some places for nice food like lamb hotpot, peking duck, bubble milk tea, etc.

I love this trip a lot ~ I definitely recommend to my friends or whenever I go China again, I will check if the company has tour in that city or not. ~

Thank Ms Nancy, thanks Trippest ~

For the money it was worth it...pretty good value. Made more enjoyable by the fact that there were some really nice people on the tour. We all got along really well. Yo Yo was great. Yes it was a packed day and times rushed but to be honest what do you expect for the low cost? If you are on a limited budget or want to see everything and only have a few days then this tour is great.
That said my co travellers had a lot to do with the day being pleasant. I went on another tour with CH the following day and while ok, a certain traveller spoilt it for myself and others.
Enjoyed my day, thankyou :0)

We book this tour online and it was amazing!
The tour included the places that we wanted to see, Jin was our guide and he made the experience even better. He was very knowledgeable, allowed enough time in each location and presented options (for example access to the Great Wall)
Highly recommend!!

The trip was great, our tour guide Linda was v. knowledgable, helpful and friendly, v. good English and made sure everyone was happy and comfortable on the trip.

We visited Tianamen Square, Firbidden City and the Great Wall, me & my friend went up with the group by cable car, then walked to the stop where we got the tobaggen down, we both loved it.

Linda made sure everyone did what they were happy & comfortable to do, explaining things clearly.

She made great recommendations too, so we highly recommend her.
