It had always been a dream of mine to practice Martial Arts on the Great Wall of China. I contacted Nancy my rep from China Tours after booking and was told they could make that happen during my visit "No Problem". My 4 day tour was great, my guides were very professional and knowledgeable. First driver was a little scary with his driving and 10 minutes after I voiced my concerns to the guide, driver was changed out for someone safer. If only in Beijing for 4 days I highly recommend spending the extra money and getting the private tour...

A wonderful holiday that will never forget especially all the exciting places during our tour in Beijing. Foods are easy to access and also Muslim food too. Ms. Su, our tour guide has been a professional guide and explain each places we went and knowledgeable too. The weather was so nice and cold which we expected some snow but didn't happen but overall we enjoyed very much...

This was an amazing tour. And our guide Linda she was so patient and nice person. We did visit all Beijing as I think in those 5 days. And the Hotels you chose was good . And the most nice thing that everywhere we get support in the name of the agency and that was helpful . Thanks for Linda . And thanks for this trip ...

I enjoyed my Tour of Beijing very much. My guide was Ed. He gave me so much information and explanations. It was great and the stories were so memorable. I would recommend this tour. I asked him so many different questions so I kept him on his toes! Sorry, Ed for all the questions!!! My hotel was very good as well! Food was great! The Peking duck restaurant I enjoyed very much!! Very very, good!! Thank you!..

Yes, it was great trip! My guide was Eva. She is talkative, smiling... Everything was punctual. I was lucky. Because weather was good. When we visit Great Wall, as I history teacher, I was very excited. Shatan hotel was good. Hutong guide, driver and housewife were friendly. If you have limited time and want to see Beijing, this tour is OK for you. 4 days enough I think. thank you....

It was a great trip, made wonderful by our very efficient and professional guide - Ms Penny Peng. We have travelled the world and seen many guides and she is no doubt the best that we've ever had. Equipped with professionalism, coupled with great knowledge and attention to details, Penny made our trip more enjoyable. Weather in Beijing was hot and dry but that did not dampened the joy we experienced during our 5 days trip. Most of the sights in Beijing are covered in this itinerary and we have nothing to complain. I highly recommend ChinaTour.Net should you be looking at china private tours. Remember to ask for a good guide :-))..

Poor communication

  
1 of 5 Star

In all, our experience with ChinaTour.net was top notch! Our guide, Sue, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, spoke Entglish very well (although it was hard to understand her sometimes) and willing to work with our requests. Our flight into Beijing was delayed 5 hours, but they still sent a driver late into the night to get us. We only really had one complaint. We did the shopping-tour because it was cheaper than the non-shopping tour. We didn't know why, but when we went to the few shops we were required to visit, we felt pressured to buy things. Our guide explained that the reason its cheaper is because our trip is subsidized so that we will spend money at these shops. I just wish we'd known that before we got to the shops so we could have planned on spending more money on souvenirs. Overall, though, a wonderful experience. Our visit to China would have been much more difficult without ChinaTour.net...

A very nice personal guide and driver (who arranged water bottles all the time, thank you) met us in the airport and took us back to the airport the last day. We saw many things as we had asked for during the four days, and we also heard of other cultural events etc. driving the car. We liked to see the Jade-, the Pearl, the Silk, the Chinese Medicine-workshops etc., but the pressure into getting us to buy the products connected to the workshops/museums was terrible. We went to see the culture, the nature and the daily life, and not to buy a lot. The visit in the Hutong-home was beautiful. The guide could tell us a lot of Chinese history. Thank you to her...

The driver we had for our tour was excellent. He was very polite and always on time. Also, he drove in a safe manner. Our tour guide was very disappointing. His knowledge was limited to what seemed to be memorized notes. He could not answer questions relating to various aspects of the tour. Overall, he was rude and discourteous. We asked him to speak louder on a number of occasions and he acted as if he did not hear our request. For many of our questions, he didn't acknowledge that we were talking to him. Most of the time, he walked 7-10 meters in front of us and gave no information on what we were looking at. A visit to Ming Tomb was on our agenda. He told us it wasn't worth going there. We told him more than once that we wanted to go there but he did not take us. Based on the unprofessional manner of our guide, I can never recommend China Tour...

I booked a 5 days (4 night) tour in Beijing. For being my first time in Beijing and alone, it was ok and pretty comfortable because we were travelling by car, and I wasn't part of a group. It was like a personalized tour. Tour guide was at the airport waiting for me when I arrived, and they took me to the airport when I left Beijing. However, I don't think I will do it again to be honest. The tour guide Lee and the driver were always polite with me, I can't complain. Lee was there always available to take pictures, and he told me the most important aspects of each of the places we visited. The places we visited are a must while being in Beijing, including the Great Wall. Although, if you are young and you are not travelling alone, you can go to all the places on your own without the need of a tour or a guide. Except for the Great Wall, I really recommed to book a tour because the Great Wall is far from the city and it takes at least half day to get there and climb the Wall. The things that I didn't like are the following: the restaurants that were chosen were terrible, except for the Pekin Duck restaurant. The rest were so bad, I had to eat there because I was hungry and I already paid for it, but the places were terrible. Dark places, bad food quality. Also, they took me to these expensive stores exclusively for tourists where they try to sell silk, jade, jewerly, pearls, etc. The prices there are 4 or 5 times more expensive than the real price. You can get the same things in Sanlitun or Wanfujing for a very cheap price. Also going to these stores was a lost of time. Overall, it was a good experience because of all the commodities, but next time I will do it on my own. Thanks..

Excellent all around. This tour was an unexpected flawless adventure. Our guide Li and driver were waiting at the airport and drove us in a luxury sedan to a five star hotel in the perfect location. Our suite and hotel buffet and amenities were exceptional. We visited all the sites and highly recommend the acrobat show. Our guide spoke perfect English and was conversant in all areas of history and current events. We recommend walking the great wall not taking the tram. The factory trips were hysterical. Enjoy them for amusement and buy what you want after bargaining or buy nothing. We bought jade and pearls and skipped buying anything at the others without guilt. It's part of the program as all world travelers should know. We tipped the foot massagers and rickshaw driver well to reflect on American generosity. Good food and very plentiful. We asked guide to include greens and veggies in our meals, which he did.Every request was heeded. It was a bargain for all we got and the trip of a lifetime. Aplus earned...

Dear ChinaTour Team, Thank you very much for a wonderful experience. We enjoyed our holiday immensely, from pick up to drop off everything was taken care of and we had a great experience. Jenny was a fantastic guide, very friendly and down to earth, Wu was the most amazing driver I've ever had to pleasure to be in a car with, the few times we had to take a taxi we realised how exceptional his driving skills were. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience China. Our guides were professional and would always go the extra mile for us, whether it was Wu waiting until the end of a late show to drive us home or Jenny walking with us to baggage check-in to make sure we left safely. I cannot say enough good things about this tour. If you've got a chance to get away and do it, DO IT!! Thanks Jenny, Thanks Wu, Thanks Nancy & Tony. We'll be back again I'm sure. Take care, from Marie-Louise and Uan...

The whole tour was well organised by our excellent guide Laura who was ably assisted by the driver.The programme was not too demanding and there was ample time to see the main sites the highlights,for us, being The Great Wall and The Summer Palace. The Beijing Asia Hotel was a most acceptable base with a good choice of restaurants nearby. The only downside was the unexpected inclusion of visits to various factories and government shops some of which we had visited on an earlier tour...

We were very pleased with both our guide, Penny and our driver. We experienced great hospitality and pleasure during our sightseeing. Penny has a really extremely great communication skills and make us to feel very welcomed, but also she has a great knowledge of china history. Also, we are very grateful for all the other extras they had accommodated us...Penny had arranged for us to have extras like a side trip to the Olympic Bird's Nest Stadium, Dr. Tea visit, not included, but definitely an interest to us. We would definitely use China Tour again and asked for Penny to be our guide for our next visit!..

I would highly recommned this tour to friends going to Beijing. We were in Beijing for five days so this tour is perfect. Each day ended pretty early so we had enough time to go out and check the city on our own. Though for those who will be staying less days in Beijing and want to see all of these sttractions, I think they could all be combined in just two days. Before I forget, many thanks to Chinatour.net for all my bookings - hotel, airport transfer and this three day tour. It was amazing because they did not require a credit card or any sort of prepayment to book everything...

we are a group of four female friends and 3 young boys aged 12-13and took the couch tour. what a fantastic trip.I would highly recommend it to everybody whose planning a short stay in beijing. The trasportation was very comfortable and we do not have to worry what to do. our tour guide , Mr. David was very much helpful, ready to assist,friendly with a happy face, knowledgeable,speaks very good english and very dependable.He even offered to take pictures of us. Our hats off to you Mr. David.Our first day was supposed to be at the Badaling walls,but unfortunaley it was the first snow fall in the winter of 2007 and due to thick layers of snow it seems dangerous to tour the Badaling. but this really did not matter because we opted to visit the other part of the wall which I don`t remember the name. My friend`s son needed to pee and the couch was in the middle of the highway,the chauffer looked for the nearest stop and Mr.David went with the boy to the rest room without any complaints whatsoever in his face. On our way back to the hotel we asked Mr-.David if he knows where we could find some bank automats to get some cash .to our surprised he directed the driver to stop at the ATM machine station...and we were able to get cash...

My husband and I opted for the private tour package with our own guide and driver. We were very pleased with both our guide, Jenny and our driver, Liu because they allowed us to visit all sites in the itinerary but at our own pace, very leisurely. Also, we are very grateful for all the other extras they had accomodated us...Jenny had arranged for us to have accupuncture which we both had requested. Also, I had bought a pair of pearl earrings which I wasn't too happy with and both Jenny and Liu agreed to go back to the shop again the next day for me to be able to exchange for something I like even if the shop was quite a distance with some traffic! Extras also, was a side trip to the Olympic Bird's Nest Stadium, not included, but definitely an interest to us. We would definitely use China Tour again for our next visit!..
