Gale took me around all of the sights and sounds of Beijing and explained an amazing amount about the history and the culture. I think I learned 1000 years of history in one day! Unfortunately we couldn't go to the Forbidden City as I booked the tour last minute, but we visited the park and I think I preferred this anyway as I could see the locals doing their thing! Summer palace was my favourite and we took the short boat tour. It's a beautiful place there. The lunch was also excellent :D Thanks for your time and I hope to have a tour with you again in future!

Had a fantastic day out in Beijing visiting most of the highlights - sadly the Forbidden City & T Square were closed due to an event but this did not deter from me having a great time in a fantastic city. Driver and guide were both lovely and very professional/helpful throughout the day - would definitely use again on future visits...

Great driver and tour guide! Knowledgeable and friendly. The tour company was great in helping us tailor a tour to see exactly what we wished for in a very short time. For sure, right from the beginning of my web request I was able to get a personal and very detailed email back giving me all the details of my inquiry plus a sample of an itinerary that would be achievable within our time frame in China. What impressed me the most was the responsive nature of the travel consultant and the fact that everything they planned for us rolled out just as expected. Every day had a new memory of the destinations, their stories and the local Chinese food was so tasty, Best holiday we have ever had!! There is no hesitation in recommending any one to book with Fantastic job well done everyone involved. Thanks again
