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 Beijing day tour was a wonderful experience for my family and me. It was great in every aspect. If we had to highlight something, it would be the exceptional service we received from the guide Candy. She looked after us all the time and did everything well to make us comfortable. Also, TravelChinaGuide provides spotless service, help, and advice. Thank you!

    Thank TravelChinaGuide for arranging such a remarkable Beijing day trip for us. It was so nice to have all the details taken care of from the pick-up service, tickets, car, and helpful restaurant advice. We don't book a tour often, but this was well worth it.

    The overall comments for the Beijing day trip to Forbidden City were excellent, well organized. Candy, the guide arranged by TravelChinaGuide, was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. She made our journey more enjoyable. Thumb up! It would be better if we could have more time in the Forbidden City and I really love it.

    We wanted you to know that we are extremely happy and satisfied with the Beijing day tour and have already recommended your company to our friends and colleagues. We all liked our guide Lily who was lovely and easy to talk to. Her great knowledge of the scenic spots and her passion for sharing Beijing went above and beyond our expectations. We wished that we could have more time with her.

    Our Beijing day trip to the Great Wall was excellent. Lily was an incredible guide. Her English was perfect. Her knowledge of the Great Wall was very in-depth and we learned a great deal from her. I hope to travel with her again next time I return back to Beijing.

    With a reasonable itinerary, our Beijing day tour ran joyfully. We visited Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City and Mutianyu Great Wall, tired but happy. The spots in Beijing were magnificent and splendid, which attracted me. Thank our guide Linda who was lovely and considerate, and helped us to spend a meaningful day. It was a pity that we had limited time in Beijing and had no chance to explore other interesting attractions. Looking forward to the next Beijing trip! I would choose TCG and the guide Linda again! ... More
