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.
  • These private Beijing day trips with English-speaking guides are quite flexible and can be tailored to meet any of your interests. Our experienced guide is ready to fit your travel pace, deliver splendid explanations and answer your questions on history, culture, architecture and many others.

    Being the first time we have booked an organized trip via the internet, it was more simple and efficient than booking a trip face-to-face with a travel company. Our consultant Ivy was a friendly and efficient communicator. She gave us options to choose and responded to all our questions so promptly. The Beijing day trip arranged for us was perfect from our meeting with our guide Lily to finishing the Great Wall. I felt lucky that I had Lily as my guide because she was so dedicated and patient. Her knowledge of the attractions we visited, along with the history and culture she shared with us was extensive and interesting. We had taken many other guided tours over the years and could honestly say that this tour was among the best. We have no hesitation in recommending TravelChinaGuide and Lily to our friends! ... More

    Have great fun on the Beijing day trip to Forbidden City. We especially liked our guide, Sara.
    Her interaction with the group was great, she was able to adapt and engage with the wants and needs of our group. We felt very comfortable with her service. But it was not easy to finish this trip under the cold weather all day.

    Your response was very timely and all communication was very clear. I would suggest you update your website to reflect the 3% PayPal charge as I paid immediately before waiting for your email reply that indicated there was a service charge to use PayPal with a credit card. Vera kindly waived that fee when I explained what happened. We are looking forward to our tour of Beijing.

    The Beijing day trip to Great Wall was great from the beginning to the end. Our guide Gloria was knowledgeable, outgoing, fluent and professional in all aspects of our tour! I was pleased with every attraction especially the Forbidden City and Panda House. But the crowd in the Forbidden City actually dampened our travel experience. It is better to avoid the peak hours in some hot scenic spots.

    The Beijing day trip was one of the most amazing trips I had ever had. I extremely appreciated the efficient reservation process and thoughtful services provided by your staff. The Forbidden City and the Badaling Great Wall were full of endless surprises. I highly recommend all!

    We thought the journey was an excellent value. It was so incredible that we could book the Beijing day tour which contained so many attractions at a low price compared with other trips I had. We indeed visited all the scenic spots requested on the itinerary. The pick-up service and professional English-speaking guide were also offered. This trip was pretty good.
