    Overall the Beijing trip to Forbidden City was a pleasant journey. The first-rate service and excellent itinerary provided excellent value for the money. Highly recommend!

    This was really a rewarding trip! We visited all the famous sites around Beijing in 2 days. The first day we went to Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. The Forbidden City was a great place worth fully exploring long with a professional explanation. The second day we visited the Badaling Great Wall and stopped at National Stadium for taking photos. I still remembered clearly the experience of standing up and seeing the magnificent walls going up and down along the mountain ridges. What a spectacle! This Beijing 2 days itinerary was reasonably arranged and the weather in November in Beijing was not very cold. ... More

    About attractions:
    I thought that the Imperial Palace was a must-see one of those Beijing historical spots. It included so many resplendent palaces and courtyards. And also we visited a large amount of Chinese cultural relics. Quite impressive! The Badaling Great Wall was also a must for a Great Wall tour. Through the detailed introductions, I learned that it was the best-preserved and most complete section. You should visit it at least once in your life.

    About our guide & driver:
    Lily Du really did an excellent job! She was a responsible, patient and reliable guide. The explanations she gave us were always comprehensible and interesting. My daughter and I were all taken good care of. By the way, her English accent was super good!

    I think meeting people from other parts of the world is an amazing thing and I hope every encounter would be meaningful! Sincere thanks for meeting all you guys on our Beijing 2 days tour to Great Wall!
