Better read the fine print. Beijing Unique Tours has a 7 day cancellation policy! If you dont give them 7 days notice they keep your fee. Our party of 6 got our flights canceled on the day of departure, making us arrive after the tour. I contacted Unique Beijing Tours and asked to reschedule. They said sure, as long as we paid a fee of $62 USD. They are very polite but would not even consider anything less. The money was too important to them. Compare that to the private transfer we'd arranged to pick us up from the airport, who willingly agreed to move our service back 24 hours for free (See my review as the transfer company is excellent). I admit I was stupid not to notice the 7 day cancellation policy. But you now have been warned. These are not the type of folks you want to deal with, and not at all representative of the wonderful Chinese people we came in contact with on our trip.

I booked the "Beijing Private Night Walking Tour: Qianmen Street, Tian'ammen Square and Wangfujing Street" and I must give a great round of kudos to our guide (Cactus). Even from before we got started we communicated with her to agree on where we would meet (since our hotel had more than one building, so there were more than one "lobby" and she was very accommodating on finding out which one we were on and still made it on time for our pickup. She was very knowledgable of the city and the places we were traveling to and even though it was a very cold night (I could notice she was feeling the cold) she never complained once even though I stopped to get photos on multiple occasions. We had a lot of fun trying the quirky food on the snack street and since we wanted to try the roasted duck she took us to a great place where I assumed she called ahead because there was a line of people waiting for a table we got to skip and enjoy some delicious duck, along with the explanation on how to eat it; and at the end of the night she hailed a cab for us and gave instructions to the driver so he would take us straight to our hotel building. All in all, it was a great trip and if we ever go back to Beijing we'll probably try to schedule something else with this company (and hopefully with Cactus since she was such a great guide).

We were staying in Wangfujing Street, so therefore if I knew how easy it was to get to Tianammen Square, we probably would of miss this tour. Although we are intrepid travellers who like to work things out, so if you could not be brothered do the tour. The tour goes through the most amazing food on the planet, we ate pigeon, although the scorpions, grubs and whatever those other things were did not appeal to me to eat. It was pouring rain which did not help, although it was still pleasant walking in the warm rain. We did visit interesting shops at the end of the tour as well. Our guide was really good making sure she caught the bus with us and made sure we knew how to get back to our hotel, very caring girl indeed.
La Vacanza Travel tours are always spot on anywhere in the world, I just love this company and have great faith in what they put together tour wise.

This tour was amazing! Becky helped schedule us just right to see the retiring of the flag in Tian'anmen square. She was sensitive to our group needs and when some of our older group members struggled with the walking, she helped us travel back via bus rather than on foot. She was knowledgable, prompt, clear, and guided us in perfect English. She answered student questions respectfully, and seeing this part of the city was so fun. I'm not all for the new shops at Qianmen, but it was a delightful place to visit at the south gate of the square. Ending at Wangfujing was a delight.

The two main street locations on this tour were too touristy and pretty much a waste of time. The square was nice and beautiful at night and my tour guide was ok and all, but he really didn't offer much conversation about the area or history. It basically just felt like he was there to walk around with and that was it. My other tour guides were much much better.
