It was okay. Day 1 the tour to the forbidden city was good. I think the extra tourist stop on the massage place and pearl shop was of a waste of time. We couldve spend the time walking around at the spring palace and heaven's gate temple. Day 2 i thought we started quite late at 8.30am. Day 1 we started at 7am. We got stuck at heavy traffic on the way to the great wall where we ended up only staying up there for an hour. We were suppose to be there at least 2-3 hours. We did a stop at the jade shop which we couldve just skipped and spend more time on the wall. We were suppose to do a tea stop and go to the olympic stadium on which we didnt as it was so late. We got back in beijing at 8.30pm. Traffic was bad maybe because of the public holiday. It was quite a disappointing day as i booked the tour for the great wall and ended up staying for only an hour...

I just finished your 2 day Beijing Classic Tour #178044. I had used the services of this company in the past and was happy with result, but it turned out not to be the case this time. I had a very efficiet driver amd a friendly guide but unfortunately other issues were not so positive. 1. In their description you say "from 7:30-8:00am to 5:00-6:00pm each day." In fact I was back to the hotel around 2h30 pm both days, including almost 2h of shop time, so in fact you are really selling just two half day activity, for which I paid $320 2. On the Temple of Heaven the guide said I could walk on my own so I think I probably missied most of the spots you mention on your program ("the hall of prayer for good harvest, 2. red stairway bridge, 3. the imperial vault of heaven, 4. echo wall, 5. triple sound stone, 6. the circular mound altar, ") 3. Your program states "You can choose go to Badaling or Mutianyu section". In fact, I was not asked and was taken to see the Juyongguan section of the Great Wall, unanimously considered the least authentic part of the wall near Beijing 4. The restaurant choise was really not up to the price level you are charging. The first day I was taken to a nasty place were I was given chinese food of inferior quality and dismal service ; On the secound day the choice was the restaurant at the Jade shop. While the quality here was acceptable I more than paid for the meal with the purchase I had done and it seems abusive to me that you choose a restaurant connected to a shop. This could have been an opportunity to eat some nice chinese food and experience an authentic athmosphere 5. But thw worst part is that you mention "One shopping stop each day for private tour: 1. Silk Shop in first day 2. jade museum in second day" where in fact I had to endure tea and silk the first day and jade and chinese medicine the last day ; this last visit being particularly abnoxious I find it unacceptable that for the price I paid I got this level of service..

We booked the 2 days classic tour with shopping tour in Beijing. We were joined by another 8 - 10 others where they picked from other hotels. It was a lovely and very enjoyable trip. We had a wonderful group . The tour guide, LEE and YO-YO was so professional and they were very helpful , no pushing you to make purchases unless you want to buy at your own accord. The trip was good . Very professional. The food was good and this is unbelievable. Transport was punctual. Driver was very skilful. It really makes our trip so pleasant. I will definitely recommend to my friends...

Couldn't take the prebooked tour due to sudden illness. The cancellation charges were very graciously waived off...

To much time allowed for shops. Too little time for sites, in particular Summer Palace at end of day. Visit to Opera was forgotten, although well organised when it was arranged...

Chris was an Excellent Guide and the Driver was on time and efficient. The company is very flexible with scheduling and payments. I received so much more than I expected and met some cool people from the States too. I Highly recommend this company and tour!..

China's tour.net has been great. I assume the actual tour guides are sub contractors. Terrible experience with them. I would like to comment more but as chinatour.net knows I am on their Yangtze River cruise things moment and don't have time right now...

I will give drivers five stars rated. Tour guides two stars. I felt they were more interested in getting us to spend time at the shopping stops. I was very disappointed. I would recommend to spend more money to go with a different tour company...

I hereby give you my comments: customer does not have to run after guide, guide must accompany customer everywhere, guide should not ask repeatedly customer if he knows because if customer knew he would not require guide. I expected better services although i must say that i am not completely disappointed...

The best tour we had. They are punctual and they explained the history about sightseeing very well. Only one thing they were fast to go but we understand that they have to cover all the attractions during that day. I do Recommend for the future visitors...

I enjoyed seeing all of the places during our 2 day tour, but didn't feel like we had enough time to see some of the sights. It was a bit to rushed for my taste...

We did this 2days Beijing classic tour in August 30th 2017 Overall the tour was good. but we were disappointed with the tour guide. He was not friendly or helpful. Even though it was a private tour he was rushing us all the time. We felt like he wanted to finish off the day fast and get back home. The 2 lunches we got was not so good. Took us to very cheap not so clean restaurants. Quite disappointing. Not sure whether it's the company (ChinaTour.Net) or the tour guide. confusing...

During my 72 hour free visa i took those tours to get most og my stay. First our guides were friendly and shared their knowledge of both the forbidden city and the various temples The sights were o Impressive but i must admit i was disappointed by the great wall. The wall is impressive seen from the distance but sll those people,swarming like a beehive was more tham i could take.so that part was a huge disappointed. Then the various stops werr fun and i reallly liked the tea ceremony even though you find the same teas for cheaper at the aiport. Last point, i wish chinese People were less pushy and loud. To finish the cruelty of serving living scorpions on a stick should be bannec. Nothing funny about it.gives a not so good impression of chinese prople...
