    Overall very satisfied. pick up was on time. tour guide was great and explained history of all places we visited. Food was average, tour took us to Pearl shop which was not part of itinerary and wasted like 30-40 min.
  • JONATHAN 20 Dec 2018
    This tour is a must to see the Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven aside from the Forbidden City. Our tour guide, Sabrina was also very nice and help us to know and history of the tour sites we have visited. We enjoyed the tour
  • Nguyen 4 Jan 2019
    We tried to contact China Klook until midnight. Make sure you have Wechat then easy for tour guide to contact you, if not they will contact with your hotel, dont worry they will pick up. (KLook should note in the info, as whatssap can not log in in China). Our tour guide speak English really really good, friendly, kind and handsome but forgot to ask his name, :(. He explained very clear everything we want to know. Before lunch we visitted a chinese foot massage and medicine for 30 min. After lunch we also need to visit a pearl shop for 40 min. We suggest that should send us to some place that we can buy something special.

    Had a great time with 李海楠 as our guide - she went the extra mile to make sure our transport as foreigners to the meeting point was covered, and she gave great background stories to help us understand the place better. 谢谢您!
  • Joe Yong Huat 16 Jan 2019
    Our tour guide speak English, really good, friendly and kind. She explained everything clearly. Before lunch we visited a chinese foot massage and medicine for 30 min. Forbidden City, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven are really beautiful. You need to pay a small fee to enter the Temple of Heaven.

    We had an amazing tour guide Cindy who made the trip memorable. She has a good command of English and helped to take photos for us.
  • Si Min 20 Apr 2019
    The meeting point was very easy to find. The trip is very well planned and there is a lot of sufficient time to tour around the forbidden palace. Our guide 李海楠 did a very great job in explaining the history of the palace from Ching Dynasty to Ming Dynasty. She made sure that participants are well taken care of and make sure that we all stay together throughout the entire walk. Besides, she can sing very well! Overall this is recommended!! Thank you for this enjoyable experience. Will love to come back again.
  • WIRIANDA 7 Jan 2019
    Nicky was an extremely good guide! The tour was really worth it. As nicky always told us the history of each place. The lunch was a typical chinese food but its good tho. Definitely worth it to buy

    it's a very good experience to know Beijing. the pickup is ontime. But we can't get in to Temple of Heaven. it's very pity that we only see it from outside.
