I learned so much about the history of Beijing. I had so many questions and our guide answered them concisely and in brilliant English. We saw so much in a really short amount of time but never felt rushed at all. My kids were so interested the whole way round (13 and 9) and the guide made it fun for them to learn as well. Very enjoyable and educational day. Highly recommended.

The history of the Forbidden City was great. It is a huge beautiful palace to see and a nice place for photographs. You need at least a day to enjoy the beauty, I could spend all of my holidays here!

While we were in China we wanted to grasp some understanding of the city’s history. We have taken private tours in other places as they allow you to enjoy a more personable experience. This one in Beijing was definitely the best one! It was not only because of the city but also because of our guide. She was not only our guide but our history teacher and our companion. She also recommended the best restaurants and places to visit during our stay. A very good company who know how to look after you.

The tour guide was passionate, knowledgeable and helpful and we really wished that we have arranged for a longer duration for more guided tours with the tour company. In short, it was a great experience and we will surely go back to them the next time.
