By: Best Beijing day tour
Western Australia, Australia
Christina is very friendly and punctual. She is also knowledgeable about the places we visited in the Forbidden city. It was hot and crowded, but we had a great time on the tour.
We had fun even raining all day. The guide was excelent and patient with all our questions. We were a group of 9 people, we had a family with kids and young travelers.
Relaxed guide through the crowdedness
Got a great day at the forbidden city with our guide Christina. The communication about the meeting point was very adequate and tips to get there were helpful. The tour itself was very relaxed, despite the crowded atmposphere. We got enough time to take pictures, while the guide told us some interesting historical background stories. No boring audioguide stories.

Christina is a top notch and very friendly guide. We had a great time visiting the forbidden city with her and wished she did more tours in Beijing
Great tour with interesting info
Christina our tour guide was very helpful with the directions of the meeting point and her knowledge of the history of the Forbidden City is deep. It is a tour worth doing (just try to avoid the summer period both because of the heat and because of the many people that are there). The tour lasts fpr about 2.5 hours, with stops for history flashbacks :)
Did exactly as expected, great tour with transport there and back as stated, and dropped at a convienent location. Timing was good as well, arrived when stated. The food was amazing, nicest food I’ve had since I’ve been in china, wasn’t like a pack lunch it was more of a banquet in a restaurant, I’m very fussy and barely ate while in china but thoroughly enjoyed this food and service. Cindy was very helpful too, would highly recommend. Miscommunication regarding meeting times and toilet breaks which could be improved , make sure you know when you can go the toilet so you don’t ‘ hold up the group’ but overall would highly recommend, great price and food, transport included and a helpful guide. The time was also very good, went very early in the morning so the wall was empty, great for photos !
Christina made a difference
Our English speaking guide, Christina was awesome. She was engaging, accommodating and patient with us. We had a quick and interesting history lesson which helped us appreciate the grandeur of the Forbidden City
Must do in Beijing
However be mindful the place has a lot of tourists and you might have a better sight of it’s might in movies :). Be there early for security gates.
Thank you Sandy and Susie!
I booked the best Beijing day tour a day before my layover in a China as it was most the cost-efficient option that is all-inclusive. I definitely made the right choice!
My flight landed past 5:30am and I underestimated the time taken to reach the pick-up point for the tour. The group was so kind to wait 20 minutes for me to reach while Sandy was checking in with me over the phone. She attended to all my queries and concerns, and was reassuring and patient.
On the tour, I realised that I would not be able to complete it as my next flight was earlier than the end time.
Susie was so helpful to book a taxi for me and communicate my needs to the driver. She even waited with me until the taxi arrived. I told her if I could rate the tour more than 5 stars, I would.
All in all, I'm so grateful to best Beijing day tour for giving me the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see The Great Wall during my layover. It was truly a world wonder and being able to say I've seen it is a blessing.

Visita a la ciudad prohibida
Sin duda una visita imprescindible. Conseguimos un tour a última hora puesto que no teníamos entrada, y valió la pena. Es inmenso y gracias a nuestra guia Cristina aprendimos un poco de su historia.
