We really loved this tour! We wanted to explore nature in China and we found this tour online. Longqing Gorge is such a beautiful place and definitely one of my favorite spots in Beijing. We went during a weekday so it was not crowded at all. We took a boat ride to see the beautiful scenery that China has to offer, and had some delicious lunch in a local restaurant. We also enjoyed the Ming Tombs and learned a lot about the history of China. Our tour guide, Qiu Huanan (Anson) was so nice and funny. He gave us an introduction about the history of China and the Ming Dinasty. He took care of everything so we didn’t have to go through the stress of finding transportation or place to eat. We got picked up in our hotel and also dropped off after the tour. If you want to explore nature in China and the countryside, I definitely recommend this tour! It is so underrated!

Lucy was such a great guide! This was my second day of a 4 week trip and one of the most memorable days! Lucy was very knowledgeable and enhanced the visit to the Longqing Gorge and Ming Tombs. She took us for a delicious lunch as well!

We had a great time and enjoyed doing something outside the city. Especially since some attractions were closed due to an upcoming country holiday. This was probably one of the best tours we had, especially because were NOT taken to any pearl, jade or silk store! Jimmy (the travel guide) made all the difference. He was punctual, attentive, and knew his history. Jimmy, if you read this, thank you for everything! You made all the difference and you were one of the best guides we had in China.

The trip to the Gorge was scenic and unforgettable and the cooler mountain temperatures are welcome this time of year. Jimmy has real insight into the history of the Ming dynasty and a range of other interesting topics. I strongly recommend this tour.
