Great tour customised to my needs... Miko was fantastic!
Jan 2019 • Solo
I had a 28hr layover in Beijing, so I contacted Discover Beijing Tours to see what sort of private tour they could offer me. They were really fantastic and tailored a tour to my needs, picking me up at the airport hotel at 10am and dropping me off at the airport at 9pm. My customised tour included Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and Simatai Great Wall at night - it was definitely a packed schedule and there was a lot of driving involved to fit this all in a day but Discover Beijing were so great and obliging to make it happen.
I had a chinese-speaking driver and english speaking guide with me for the whole day, and it just made everything easy and seamless. Miko (my guide) was fantastic and really took his job seriously to provide relevant and interesting facts about each place we went to. I feel like I learnt a lot about Chinese history and culture just in one day, so it was well worth visiting the key landmarks.
If you have a long layover in Beijing and want a tailored private tour, these are the guys to help you out!
