What to expect
  • When you book, enter your interests in the Special Requirements field on your booking form. Your guide will then pre-plan your itinerary before meeting you at your Beijing hotel (within 4th ring road only) or a central location for your choice of a morning or afternoon tour. Then, set off by private, air-conditioned vehicle and visit your chosen historical or cultural attractions at a pace that suits you. Activity costs, such as entrance fees, and foods and drinks, are at your expense. Four hours provides time to visit one or two main sights, several neighborhoods, or a combination of both. Perhaps explore attractions like Tiananmen Square or the UNESCO-listed Forbidden City. Alternatively, tour the UNESCO-protected Summer Palace or visit the 15th-century Temple of Heaven before pearl shopping at the nearby Hongqiao Pearl Market. Maybe delve into particular neighborhoods like Beijing’s atmospheric ‘hutong’ lanes, go shopping along Wangfujing Street, or admire the 2008 Olympic Village. Other activities might include visiting museums or gardens, scouring the Panjiayuan antique market, sampling Chinese cuisine at food markets or restaurants, or tasting teas at Maliandoao Tea Street. After four hours, your tour concludes with a drop-off at the original starting point. Please note: if you wish to visit sites outside Beijing's 4th ring road, an additional cost will be incurred.

I arrive early in Beijing and want to have a good rest first, but still, have time to enjoy the most of my short visit to Beijing. This tour is perfect, I can ask the guide to pick me at any time, I chose to be picked up at 12 so I have enough time to rest after a red-eye flight. Lucy was my guide and she was amazing! I truly had a great time, she took me to Hutong area where I saw an old bell and drum tower, and hang out in the old area of Beijing I learned a lot about China's history from Lucy. She also took me to a local Moslem restaurant so I can enjoy a local authentic but Halal Chinese food! Super duper happy for this! Would really recommend this tour for sure!

We had been in Beijing for 4 days, so we knew what we wanted from this tour. Linda knew our intent and tailored the tour and also enhanced it further to maximise the value for us. Linda is a great communicator with great English skills. Linda is not only knowledgeable on historical aspects but translates the implications into today’s life experiences. We found Linda to be a warm and caring tour guide, with excellent skills. I highly recommend her.

Our tour guide Susan is just so wonderful. She planned efficiently our visit to tourist spots so we can be at South Railway Station around 3pm. Susan is definitely very knowlegible about the history and culture of Beijing. She is very accommodating that she even accompany us up to the railway station. I never thought that the station is so big that without her we could have a hard time going back to tianjin on time. We enjoyed very much our stay in Beijing

We booked a half day tour including driver and personal guide for my mother while I was out of town. The guide Cynthia took good care of her, was available via WeChat and picked her up from the hotel. They then went to the Forbidden city, Temple of Heaven and afterwards to the airport. My mother had a good time!
