Customer Reviews

  • Must see places in Beijng
    Ferndown, United Kingdom | Nov 3, 2015

    It was a long day covering over 15,000 steps - so a lot of walking over the 9 hours (including pick up and return to hotel). Well worth the effort as the tour covers the major sites of historical interest in Beijing.

  • Schöne Führung, Guide o.k.

    Führung war absolute o.k. Leider waren in der verbotene Stadt zu viele Leute. Besser wäre möglicherweise am Morgen den Sommerpalast zu besichtigen und nachmittags die verbotene Stadt. Wasser gab es allerdings nur ganz am Ende auf Nachfrage. Zwischendurch haben andere Teilnehmer bereits Trinkwasser gekauft.

  • sehr interessant und gut organisiert

    aber schon etwas mühsam für "ältere Leute"
