Friendly Travel Tips

  • Our free pick-up service is available for hotels within the 4th Ring Road of the city. In case your hotel is beyond the range of location, or you take a layover tour directly from Beijing Airport to the Great Wall, there might be an additional transfer fee. Your travel consultant will discuss this with you.
  • Except for Chinese official holidays and the summer vacation from July 1 to August 31, the Forbidden City is usually closed on Mondays. If you happen to visit it on Monday, our travel consultant will recommend other sightworthy spots to meet your interests.
  • Most sights in our capital city like Forbidden City, Great Wall, Summer Palace, and Temple of Heaven, are rather big, which demand a fair amount of walking. We kindly suggest you wear comfortable walking shoes and lightweight clothes.

    The trip was excellent and LINDA did a FANTASTIC JOB. She was right on time to pick us up, explained everything, provided historic data and explanations, was charming and very accommodating, and very attentive to our needs and requests. If we come to China again, LINDA will be our first choice to be our guide again.

    My brother and I were very satisfied with our travel experience. From the time we were met at the airport until the return, our needs were met and appreciated along the whole trip. Beijing is a great city, we are planning to travel to Xian next time and will use their service.

    My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the 1-day Beijing tour with Vicky as our guide! She arrived promptly at our hotel, was very knowledgeable and literate and provided us with a wonderful experience on the Great Wall and at the Summer Palace. If we had more time to spend in Beijing prior to our cruise, we would have gladly booked additional trips with Vicky as our guide.

    Secondly, I would like to say I am beyond pleased with my guide and driver. Brenda helped create a truly unforgettable experience here in Beijing, she was kind, informative, thoughtful, and gave me great advice.

    I am happy that I stumbled upon the company, it was truly a magnificent experience and I cannot wait to book with them again. I will definitely be asking for Brenda on my next trip here.

    I had only one day free during my business trip in Beijing and I booked this mini group day tour with this company. We found our guide Kitty to be warm, receptive, friendly and we grew close to her as we spent more time touring together. Our group understood Kitty's english and appreciated her knowledge of the places we visited. The driver was always courteous and friendly, and the car was to our satisfaction.

    The service was excellent. Candy was an excellent guide and the driver Jerry was very good as well. Candy gave a great trip of the Forbidden City despite the torrential down pour! We have a great picture of her taking a picture of rain flowing from the dragons! Candy also has a great collection of pictures of us that we would love to have copies of!

    I thought that this company did a great job listening to our wishes and customizing the trip for us.
