Tianamen Square was incredible. We loved the fact that the guide took the time to explain things to us. We did a couple of tours on our trip as there was so much we wanted to see but this is the tour that stays in my mind. It was so well organised and tailored to what we wanted to see. Our friends are visiting next year and we have already told them to book this tour - we walked away feeling a lot more knowledgeable. Thank you for such a brilliant day

When you travel far you can feel a little out of your comfort zone. We booked  3 tours with this company before we left Ireland. All of the tours were excellent and this is why I decided to write a review for each of them. The bonus of booking this was that it was a private tour and we got picked up and dropped off back to our hotel. We had our own guide for the day, who was excellent and the places we saw were amazing. We would never have been able to see and understand so much if we did not have a guide. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour company…you made our Beijing holiday the best experience ever.

We had a wonderful experience with our tour guide. She gave us lots of information about the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. This tour worked well for us as we got to choose what we did in the afternoon. Overall a very good tour to take.

Would definitely recommend using this tour company as we got picked up from our hotel and our guide stayed with us for the duration. The sights in Beijing are amazing and you really need a guide to explain everything to you. We had a lovely day, thank you. Louise Doherty

Our guide met us in the lobby of our hotel and explained how the day's tour would go. She had an impressive knowledge of Chinese history, especially when it came to all of the different parts of the Forbidden City, suggesting places for photos and taking photos of my husband and I. We really enjoyed this tour and eating at a local restaurant. This was a day well spent.
