    Initially, we had some problem in finding our tour guide as many of the roads surrounding the Tian An Men square were blocked by the police. My car had forced to stop at different gate and I and my sister (with wheelchair have had to walk 20 mins) to locate our tour guide. The tour guide was generally helpful.

    Our guide James was very friendly and eager to share. We opted for the English option so he was all ready to speak English and indeed was very fluent. But we find the explanations in Chinese more illuminating by the mere fact that a lot of the imagery and symbolism are best conveyed by the language. Overall, it was a great experience!

    Mr Liu is a very knowledgeable guide and enthusiastic in showing us around. Visiting Beijing was fun and at the end of the tour, we knew our ‘dragon lady’ pretty well already. Thanks Mr Liu.

    We were only one family for this trip. It was more like a private tour. Our guide Susie was very nice caring person. She is quite knowledgeable and has a very pleasing personality. Enjoyed the entire day!!

    Five star for the tour and to our tour guide Joy. Very knowledgeable and accomodating. The summer palace part of the tour was so great and also the Lama palace tour. Highly recommended for first time visitors to Beijing. Thanks KLOOK for making our trip so easy and wonderful.

    The guide Kai was very informative and helpful. He took extra care to explain finer nuances of each place and make the experience more enjoyable. He allowed extra time for us to explore Summer Palace and Lama temple. Overall, KLook experience was very good.

    its my honey review this trip is so nice. Joy the travel guide, really caring for us and can explain the story and details very well. also the driver he is very nice. they will pick u at your hotel ( dont worry after u write down your hotel while booking, the travel guide will call your hotel and tell them. so u need to check the receptionist ) bring us to the beauty of summer palace, riding the big dragon boat. then they bring you to the zoo to see panda.. unfortunately all panda is sleeping :( last destination they bring you to lama temple while , they also put some stops to the jade , silk, tea, pearl shop (usually 2 stops for buying some souvenirs ) for lunch, they bring us to same restaurant like other travel do.. thw food was ok.. well this tour is very good, beside u dont want and hv much time to travel.

    Dear Klook, thank you for the amazing experience. You have shown me how irresponsible a tour operator can be. Recently I have signed up 4 different daily tours + 2shows with Klook. All in Beijing. There has been no update on the pick up time for ALL tours even till the night before the tour. Upon calling the Klook helpline, I was informed by Klook employees that I need to call the local 3rd tour operator directly to confirm the timing. I would like to ask Klook what is the role you are playing and what have you done to earn the commission in this arrangement. If I need to call the local 3rd party operator directly, I might as well sign up with the hotel saving me the hassle and also the hefty overseas call charges. I am only leaving 1 star as this is the minimum. If I could, there will be no star.

    Excellent tour! It was shorter than expected but it is fine. Because we didn’t waste any time to pick up other tourists. Because we (me & my mom) were only people sign up for this tour that day. Yes! It became private tour. We got pick up at 8 o’clock in the morning in my hotel lobby. There was little changes of our tour schedule. We went to zoo first in the morning. Panda was awake and active because it was their breakfast time. It is the biggest zoo in China. I could spend all day there but the tour only spent 30 minutes to look at Panda bears and got out. 😞 2 hours at Summer Palace was nice. Climbing the Hill of Longevity to go up to Tower of Buddhist Incense is optional I guess? Entrance fee of Tower of Buddhist Incense is not included. It is not expensive. It would been nice to include it in this tour because it’s worth it to climb the hill to look down the Summer Palace. Ferry also wasn’t included. Not expensive. But it’s annoying to line up to buy tickets. Spent 1 hour at Lama Temple. Tour guide GAO Jinn is very knowledgeable. I was very impressed. Lunch was good. Since it was just 2 people in this tour we only got 3 entrées instead of 10 for 8 people. But it was tasty. Pearl shop I wasn’t interested. Driver drop us off at our hotel at 2:30pm. It was shorter than expected. But I was satisfied with quality of tour.
