Awesome tour, no lines, no worries
May 2019
- Easy and simple to book
- They provided clear instructions on how to meet them
- The tour itself was awesome! Herbie is very knowledgeable. We didn't get any line at the Mutianyu Great Wall in the morning. We spent the afternoon in Forbidden city and Tiananmen square. The place is huge, it is much better and safer to visit it with a guide rather than alone.
- No worries with traffic, they know when you have to be back at the airport and take care of it.
- I highly recommend it!

A must do if only in Beijing on layover!
Dec 2019 • Couples
This was my second time to Beijing but the first for my husband. We had only 18 hours in Beijing and first were looking at navigating the city ourselves. However with the language barrier, we decided to do this tour. Lisa was our tour guide and was excellent. We first went to the great wall of china and had the opportunity to take a ski lift to the top and a tabogan down. What a wonderful experience! We then spent the afternoon in the forbidden city and Tiananmen square. Lisa walks super fast so you have to keep up with her and does not always look back to see the group is still there! She was approachable and friendly.

Awesome Beijing tour!
I had an amazing time with our tour guide Herbie and the other "Herbies" :) I was glad though that I didn't have to catch a flight a 7 p.m.-ish as there was so much traffic in Beijing.
Instead 5 of us still hung out in old Beijing (close to forbidden city, and recommended by Herbie), and we got easily back to the airport by metro on our own by 9 p.m.
Would definitely book again! Also email support before was quick and very helpful.

Very Accommodating
Nov 2019 • Family
Ms Lisa Lijiamin was very accommodating. She waited for almost two hours because the line for the 24 hr free visa was very long, after arriving at the designated meeting place she carried some of my aunt's carry on luggage. She was also very fluently with her English skills. One of my old aunt who is with me has a dried hand, ms lisa offered immediately her hand cream to us which we appreciate, she also updates us regarding our next flight which is a good thing. The tour is so worth it because of her and also the driver.

Layover in Beijing
Nov 2019 • Family
On our way to Thailand and back to the United States we had a long layover in Beijing.. we decided get a tour ... the best thing we did, our tour guide (Sandy) was amazing!!! She was very knowledgeable and above all humble... after the tour was done, and took us back to the airport, she waited until we were passed security, when she noticed that we had a problem with my granddaughter airplane ticket, she immediately took control and got the issue fixed with the airline.. she went above and beyond in helping us!!
We highly recommend her!!!

Nov 2019 • Couples
There’s really no better way to explain how happy we were with the whole arrangement and with Herbie and our driver Sean- they picked us up in time, drove us everywhere we wanted to go, let us sleep our jetlag in the car, took our amazing pics, gave us tips - really Herbie’s English is great and he even speaks a little German! We totally recommend this trip for anybody with a long layover in Beijing (even the 24-visa free stanp went smoothly!)

We had the best time with Herbie! He was knowledgeable and charismatic. Throughout the tour he answered our questions and facilitated a great time, not to mention captured several great photos of our group. We would definitely recommend Herbie to show you around!
