After they picked us up on time at the hotel we went first to Lama Temple. Our tour guide Emmene explained about the Lama Temple's history. We took some picture there. Then we went to Dr.Tea( the biggest tea house in Beijing). Miss Tea told us About history of many teas with her excellent English. And then we went to Olympic Square to see the Bird's Nest Stadium and Water Cube Aquatics Center.then we went to Panda Zoo. There were 3 panda; 2 were inside and the other one was outside.at the end of our tour we went to Hutong. Our tour guide passed us along to another local guide who rode a bicycle alongside our rickshaws through alleys. We've had our lunch at Hutong's family. Then we came back to our hotel. Great tour! Great guide! Great Experience!..

We recently visited Beijing and used ChinaTour.net for three separate day tours. Day 1 we visited Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace . Laura was our personal tour guide and despite the rushed atmosphere caused to having to see so many sites in one day, she was very informative, exceptionally helpful, and a delight to be with all day. I highly recommend personal tour guides. The next day we visited the Lama Temple, the Panda Zoo and the Hutong. This was a small group tour and turned out to be a lot of fun. The Hutongs we visited were being renovated so there was a lot of construction debris. I think its great that these areas have been declared protected and are being redone. Lunch was great, in one of the Hutong houses. The Lama Temple was gorgeous and the pandas were sleepy and cute. The tour guide was incredible and I am sorry I forgot her name. I would like to give her personal credit for making this day a great memory. Our last tour was also a personal tour. We went to the Great Wall and the Ming Tombs. We chose the Badaling site since it has the cable cars to take you to the top. I was a little disappointed in that we went to the Great Wall at the last or our tour. The sun was in our faces so any pictures I took turned out rather poor. It would have been better to go to the Wall first but it was incredible to see! During all three trips, side excursions to silk factory stores, cloissone factory stores and other preferred shops took up some of our day but there were no hard sells. Probably what was the most fun was going to the Silk Factory and Pearl Market store. This is 5 stories of shopping heaven. Resist the temptation of buying at the stores visited on the tours if you can. You can find everything you want here if you are willing to bargain. My advice? Start really really low. If we return to China, we will definately use this service again...

My visit to China was nothing short of "Amazing" The people are so friendly and helpful. The prices are cheaper than most places. The history of China is so interesting. To see those adorable Pandas in real life really made my heart sing! Thank you again China and also for teaching me the wonderful flavours of your "Tea"..

I enjoyed this tour. The pace was good with time to yourself. The tour guide was good [Paul] and knew the history well. Time was given to take pictures and chill. Enjoyed the rickshaw ride. Which is about 15 mins long. Meal was cooked in front of us. Well cooked good tasty dishes...

Moe of a whistle stop tour once you have don ethe main sights . tour guide didn't get as involved as others but still it was an enjoyable day . special mention was the lunch which seems to be an area of variability. So all in all a good tour with the highlight for me being the Lama Temple which was amazing...

Wonderful. Booking done 1 week before, company informed of my hotel contact/room no. China tour confirmed someone will contact the night before pick up. But nothing happend. Even not amessage indicating that the tour has been cancelled. Wasted my day. I shall put warnings to trip advisor and other travel blogs to remain careful when booking with Chinatour..

The best of this tour was the Hutong and the Lama Temple. The Hutong was interesting; however, I thought we would be taken around a bit more not just to where we would eat lunch. Lama Temple is beautiful, but having some time on our own would have been nice. Beijing Zoo was PACKED, and all we did was get to the pandas and that was it. I think it should be extended to more animals not only the pandas. We had 50 minutes to roam around Olympic Square which is a huge open space where you can see the Birds Nest and the Water Cube, I would have preferred more time elsewhere such as Hutong looking around, the Lama Temple or the Zoo...

I enjoyed this tour. It is lovely to see the sites of Beijing and our tour guide was kind and informative. The thing I love about Chinatour.net is the small size of the group. If you choose to take a group tour. Many tour companies use a big bus with many people, but with Chinatour the groups are quite small. I enjoyed the Hutong tour and the lunch...

We went to this tour with tour guide, Jenny. We did 3 tours with her. She was fantastic and all tours went smoothly. We had totally 9 people and she handled all very well. We had fantastic experience all historical sites which Jenny showed us. She was fantastic!..

Hutong was very interesting and atypical, the Lama temple offered its load of interests as well. The monuments themselves are certainly worth to be seen, it is also a place for pilgrimage. The panda house on the other hand was a little disappointing. We entered the zoo and I thought we would go around a little more. We went only to the panda house, we saw two pandas and that\'s it. Mostly we were rushed through places, but we got to see a lot of things...

The best of this tour was the Hutong and the Lama Temple. Good experience with the locals. Get to know where most of the Chinese in Beijing leave and share a meal with them, prepared by them... Good stuff. Lama Temple is beautiful no comments, its a must. Panda Zoo, is real just the pandas no more no less. BUT only 3 pandas, and one of then so old that he can't move. I think it should be extended to more animals not only the panda. Olympic Square is a huge open space where you can find the Birds Nest and the Water Cube. Very nice buildings, but nothing interesting in the surroundings...
