I HIGHLY recommend the private 2 day tour of Beijing! My tour guide, Serena, was phenomenal and my driver was excellent, as well! Serena was extremely knowledgeable of the history behind each location and focused on making my experience the best it could be. We had A LOT of fun and the Great Wall of China will always be an amazing memory for me. If you have limited time, this is the best tour for the money!..

We can really recommend this tour package with Chinatour.net, We had two days only and we saw many places in short time period due to cover places offered in these days. Rita are Value for money and nothing more, guide very knowledgable and very outspoken in English. Especially thanks to Mr. David, He explained many interesting insights and History about China. Also the stops at the factories for Tea and Jade were really interesting. We bought some Tea packets and mug from this Trip, Thanks to Chinatour.net and Mr. David..

We had Private Two day Tour package with Serena and was very pleased. Both her and our driver was nice people and we got to see all the major sites in Beijing. A bit disappointing not to go inside Mings tombs, and only see the museum and surrounding buildings. Otherwise we loved it!..

My family and I did a 2 day tour in Beijing. As a first time international traveler I was very nervous about finding our way around. Unfortunately I lost my luggage at the shanghai railway station on the way to Beijing and went into a panic. our tour guide Kathy went above and beyond to help locate my luggage and showed us what we needed to do to reclaim it. She treated us like family and customized our visit based off our interest. We especially loved the tea shop, a visit made on special request. We are already talking about a 2nd visit and will definitely ask for Kathy again. I highly recommend this tour and Kathy as a tour guide. You save yourself so much stress when you have someone to help you get from place to place and to explain the culture...

I booked a private tour for two days and was impressed with the puncuality of pick up from the Hotel each morning and the knowledge and friendliness of my guide, Steve. I was able to see the major sights in and around Beijing and enjoyed each one. I can recommend this activity for someone who has limited time in Beijing...

I was very happy with my tour - I had never been to Beijing and don\'t speak the language - and had a brief two days to see the sites. David was a knowledgable and friendly tour guide and helped explain the history behind some of the lesser known (to me) sites like the Ming Tombs and Summer Palace, while making sure I had enough time to spend on the Great Wall and Forbidden City. One thing that was a bit suprising was that in some cases your tour guide will leave you to see some things on your own (lunch, visiting a Jade factory - where yes, they\'ll try to sell you things) . I would recommend setting a meeting place and time with your guide as it can be a bit unnerving to stand around wondering if you are going to be on your own in the middle of China! In other cases, David moved through a few sites a bit faster than I wanted to, but was also very agreeable to me stopping and saying I wanted to look around a bit more. That said, I wanted to see the sites and did - and it was amazing. Note to those climbing the Great Wall - you are CLIMBING some incredibly steep stairs and it\'s at high altitudes. It\'s exhausting (and well worth it) but I really wasn\'t prepared. I was luckily wearing good shoes but easily could have been caught in sneakers and that would have been tougher...

After getting the confirmation mail from Chinatour.Net, I felt secured and safe as I got friend in Beijing. I was very much excited on getting phone call from the guide before arriving Beijing. The guide also welcomed us as he knows us since last few years. The group was also too small, only 6 of us. We have visited all the sites as planned. We had been served with excellent lunch with varieties. The Climate did not favour us as it was too cold because of snow fall. Though, I enjoyed with that weather as i have never experienced snow fall before.Thank you for chinatour.net and i prefer it for others who want to visit china......

After getting the confirmation mail from chinatour.Net, i experienced secured and safe as i got friends in Beijing. I became excited on getting the phone call from the guide before arriving Beijing. The guide welcomed us as he knows us since last few years, so that it became too comfort for us for the tour. The group was also too small, only 6 of us. Both the days the lunch were too good with all the varieties. We visited all the areas as planned before. The climate was not suitable as it was too cold because of snow fall. I enjoyed this weather as i never experienced snow fall before. Lastly i thanked Chinatour.Net and will advice others to visit china via chinatour.Net...

We (four of us from Indonesia) visited Beijing for a seminar and we have 2 days private tour of Beijing. One interesting is watching Kungfu Show as additional trip. It was wonderful. Our tour guide, Jimmy is OK, very knowledgeable and spoke English well. The bad experience happened when there was a windy storm in Badaling – Great Wall and the Summer Palace was closed for a festival, so we couldn’t enjoy it. Overall, we enjoyed Beijing with friendly tour guide, Jimmy ..

The Great Wall was an amazing experience. However please ensure that you go to the Badaling section even if it is a bit crowded. The tour was pretty hectic with us trying to catch up with our "super fast" guide...

Everything in the Tour went good, the tour guide speaks well in English, we learned too much from the history of China, but we didn\'t get inside the tomb under the Ming\'s Tomb hill..., only the Temple on the Ming\'s Tomb.....

My wife and I did the 2 day coach tour of Beijing. Our tour guide, Bruce, was very knowledgeable and spoke English well. We did have much time in Beijing, so this tour package was great for us. The only thing we wish we could have done was to walk down from the Great Wall. In the description, it lists the cable car as an option, but our guide told us we did not have enough time to walk up and back down the Great Wall. So everyone in the tour had to fork out an additional 80 RMB for a round trip cable car ticket. We were not expecting that. I understand that there are time constraints on the tours, but we had plenty of time to at least be given the option to take the cable car up and walk back down. After the Great Wall we went to the Ming Tomb and then returned and finished dropping off everyone at there hotels at 3:30PM. Plenty of extra time to be able to walk up and back down the Great Wall...

I only had two days to visit the main spots and it was a great way of doing it. Tony was a great guide and taught us a lot. I recommend this tour to anyone because Beijing is too big to walk and it's much easier to visit if you have a guide. I hope to go back one day!..

I booked this tour just a few days from the internet. Since Me and my wife Syarah were only staying a few days in Beijing, we just took the 2 days tour package. I really recommend this tour and I will suggest all my friend to take this tour if they go to Beijing. The guide Ms Wendy were good and very nice. She explain me about these tour very well. The bus was ok, the driver very proper. Me and my wife enjoy all the trip we take. The meals for our lunch was good and the places were nice. This tour has give us a very nice memory about Beijing Mirwan Scott & Syarah Syanti Jakarta Indonesia..

This tour was booked on the Internet a week before I visited Beijing. Service was excellent, with guides phoning the night before to confirm tha collection time. Pick-ups were on time and both Jennifer & Andy, the guides, were very knowledgeable. Everyone on both 19 & 20 November\'s tours agreed that this was excellent value for money, all guests on both days agreed that the service was fantastic. For a short visit to Beijing, this package is a must!! You get to see all the \"important\" places!!. Lunches were good and the guides were attentive to the needs of the group. I will definitely use this company again!! Tracy Laubscher-South Africa 19/20 November 2008..

This was our second trip to China to show off to my wife's parents what a wonderful experience we had. Politics and myths will be what they are, China have shown me that people from whatever race or culture, are inherently good and hospitable at heart. Everyone showed us a great time, in fact, they went out of their way to ensure that we had a great experience. If we had hospitality like this back home, then this world would be a much better place. Our tour guide for this last visit was Rita (Morning Beauty), and when we thought that our last tour guide (Cynthia) was as good as it could ever get, Rita proved us wrong by elevating the service to the next higher level. The tour guides are extremely knowledgable and friendly and young and beautiful. Great experience and memories I will take with me forever. and we I took this tour on 23/24 May, I booked just a couple of days before online and as confirmed the tour guide called me in my hotel room the evening of 22 May and then again on 23 May to confirm pick up times. For the money paid (in cash to tour guide after day one completed) I cannot believe how much is packed in and included - We visited everything on the list and there were other places of interest added, such as Pearl, Jade, Silk Factories, Tea..

For the money paid (in cash to tour guide after day one completed) I cannot believe how much is packed in and included - We visited everything on the list and there were other places of interest added, such as Pearl, Jade, Silk Factories, Tea House etc, which was a bonus. Lunch on both days was good too. The guides (Jennifer on Day 1 - Great Wall etc, and Christina on Day 2 - Forbidden City, Temples etc) were very friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. They clearly work very hard. I was also helped by them to book last minute tickets to an acrobatics show one evening after listening to other people on the tour talk about how great it was to see. The budget tour was great (8 / 9 people) and I met people from all over the world, and have already been able to exhange emails / meet up with a couple of them. Its a great way to see Beijing, which is a huge city, and a great way to meet people and enjoy them time to the maximum. Very very highly recommended...

I can really recommend this tour, I only had two days and I saw a lot in the short time. Rita is an excellent guide very knowledgable and very outspoken in English. She really gave many interesting insights. Also the stops at the factories for silk, enamel and Jade were really interesting. The people are not so pushy - you are free not to buy anything there. Only thing to improve would be the transportation logistics. E.g. I was first to be picked up for the Great Wall tour. So in the morning I spent approx. 90 minutes in the bus before we were finally off to the Great Wall. In the evening the same thing on the way back...

If you only have a few days in Beijing- this two day tour is the way to go! The tour guides are friendly, know their stuff, and are well-spoken in English. You can not beat the price to see all these great places. The whole time was great, even the lunches! Excellent opportunity-trust me! Anthony Adams..

The guide would start talking before I was able to even catch up to them. She rushed us through the forbidden city. We didn’t even get to look into any of the rooms. And I’m very unhappy about the refund process when I had to change tickets and cancel a performance because of the virus...

We did the reservations and after the confirmation tried to contact ChinaTour but nobody has responded to us in any way. On the day of the tour beginning nobody has contacted us, nor replied on email. Thank God we didn't pre-paid the tour. Wouldn't recommend it to further tourists...

Very bad experience!! I booked ‘’Badaling’ side of Great Wall of China and I was sent for Mutiyanu trip, when I asked about the guide he left us at the reception of another hotel with the number of the manager to sort out everything. Later after SO MUCH OF BACK AND FORTH, we were sent to city tour instead on that day (1) and we were given the contact details of the tour guide of another agency to coordinate ourselves. We had to pay for our cab charges from hotel (not where we were staying BUT where were dropped) to the forbidden city from our pocket and we had to chase the driver in the overly crowded forbidden city for an hour....... Ww ended up standing in the ticket queue to enter the forbidden city.... I am so disappointed and will never ever recommend this company to anyone. WORST EXPERIENCE!!..
