We first wanted to go to the forbidden city ourselves, but when we looked for tickets in the morning to go to the city on the next day, everything was fully booked (even for the next 3 days after). This was the only tour available that could arrange our entree. After we got in (which was only possible with our guide), we got to buy the tickets for the city (with money provided by the tour). Without this tour we wouldn't have been able to get in! And we were very happy to do this tour because Michael, our guide, made it all the worthwhile. We got to see the two major highlights of Beijing for us, the Forbidden city and the Great Wall at Badaling, in just a short time (1 day) without being rushed! While we were at the Tiananmen Square and in the Forbidden city, we got some great background information and Michael was very knowledgeble. At the great wall we got some free time to walk up the wall at our own pace, which was nice because this hike was no joke! Take some water, sunscreen and walking shoes, because you'll need it. There is also an option to take a cable cart, but I recommend doing the hike, because the scenery was worth the climb. We also got to enjoy a delicious chinese lunch and in addition to the two highlights, we also visited a jade museum and got to experience a traditional chinese tea ceremony where we tasted 5 different teas. The latter two activities also had a shop where you could buy some jade accessoires or tea(pots) if you were up to it. It was a fully packed day (7.30AM to 6.00/7.00PM) so it was nice to have transfers both from and back to our hotels. Michael was truly a gem in all this and I would definetly recommend this tour!

Awesome full day tour! Small private group, only 4 people were in our group. Tour guide Christina did a great job at navigating pickups and throughout the whole day through all the different sites. She was engaging, fun, and informative. 10/10 recommend this tour. Ask for Christina as your guide, you won’t regret it!

Very friendly and informative guide. Took as also to the Jadeit Factory and Tea presentation. It was something that I would not choose by myself and it was very interesting. Yes, I know he has profit in this - but who cares if it is exciting?
