    Good communication with the tour guide Leo through WeChat before meeting with him. Leo is nice and helpful. Recommend to use WeChat for communication. The Forbidden City is crowded everywhere, yet a memorable experience. The actual visit time was just around 2.5 hours, so a bit rush.

What To Expect

Explore one of the most important historical sites in China, boasting of a magnificent architectural complex steeped in culture and the arts! The Palace Museum, better known as the Forbidden City, holds a vast collection of paintings, calligraphy, ceramics, and antiquities from the many golden periods in China’s imperial history. Located at the heart of Beijing, you’ll be excited to see that the Palace Museum houses not just historic spots, spectacular gardens, museums and theaters, but also contemporary cafes, restaurants and shopping malls. Subway stations and bus stops are within walking distance, making it very accessible especially to first timers in Beijing! Meet up with your professional guide and enter through the Meridian Gate, a massive U-shaped portal at the south end of the complex, which in former times was reserved for the use of the emperor. Since yellow is the symbol of the royal family, it is the dominant color wherever you look. Roofs are built with yellow glazed tiles; decorations in the palace are painted yellow; even the bricks on the ground are made yellow by a special process. Your guide will help you find your way through the Forbidden City and put everything you see and hear into perspective.

    Great way to see the Forbidden City.

    The tour guide has professional knowledge of China (however he speaks too soft, sometimes could not hear him)
  • Rachaneekorn 2 May 2018
    A great way to explore the Tiananmen square and Forbidden City. Our guide, Francis, was very friendly, informative and helpful. He picked us up at the hotel which saved us a lot of time finding each other at the crowded Tiananmen square. We have 2 children with us and Francis entertained them very well. He took us on the palace wall and other parts that are newly opened to public. Highly recommend this tour. (We didn't use group tour as our children wouldn't be able to catch up with all adults.)

    I reported to the two-member group. The tour guide only took us two. There is a lot of freedom. The Forbidden Palace is really big. The tour guide said a lot of stories and history of the Forbidden City. It is awesome!

    Beijing summer is really hot and terrible, but the tour guide is very patient to lead us to visit, and very serious explanation. Although the Forbidden City is currently only one-third open, I hope to come back again when it is fully open in the future.

    Great guide, the route is very smooth, the tour guide is also very intimate, take the initiative to ask us to go to Tiananmen Square to take a photo before entering. Next time, if you have the opportunity to bring your family, you will order again!

    The tour guide was in a hurry! After the explanation, I didn't leave time to take pictures of us. The guide only said that I would like to take pictures of the photos. The focus is on the photos and the tour guides don't know what to drive. The five of us have not yet made up. I was anxious to count 321 (the speed is still 0.5 seconds), so the deduction of the closed eyes and the lack of people are probably less than three photos. When we were taken out of the Forbidden City, we were still full of question marks. I personally think that it is really okay for the tour guide to go in a hurry. You can leave us inside and go shopping!! The result is that you didn’t ask for a tour guide, but after five people, it’s not more than four thousand dollars. I was taken to the exit in two hours!! I don’t want to leave a comment and want to say it, but everyone’s money is not good. I think it’s still up to evaluate it so that others don’t expect it to be as good as I am! ~

    Detailed explanations allow visitors to better integrate into the historical floods of the Forbidden City. In addition to the history, they will add some wild historical stories that are really suitable for first-time visitors.
