Reviews of 2 Days Beijing Private No-Shopping Tour by Scott ***
2 Day Private No Shopping Tour nightmare.
Beijing Belly isn’t pleasant. Add a brand new Chinese car with that horrible new car vinyl smell, a driver who doesn’t know how the air conditioning works, a guide who doesn’t offer any commentary for the 90 minute drive to the Great Wall except constantly asking what you want for lunch (for the 20th time no thanks I’m unwell), crazy driving, a line of a hundred thousand at the Great Wall Chairlift, and when you say please just take me back to the hotel the guide and driver chat in Chinese for the next 90 minutes ....
When I asked about perhaps we could do the Forbidden City this afternoon I was told tickets are sold out. So they dropped me back at the hotel by noon, I then took myself on the 10 minutes walk to the Forbidden City, no line at the ticket window, no problem getting a ticket, straight in, no guide, no driver, just on my own and it was fabulous.
Following morning the guide arrives for day 2 , so I sent her away. Didn’t want anymore of my time ruined , just did it on my own.
