Major attraction in Beijing. I spent 5 hours visiting. The audio guide is a good source of information.

Easy to book, no problem at the entrance. However, the audio guide was not that easy to use during the tour and was not working very well e.i. the wifi signal was not functional in some part of the Forbidden city. I would not recommend to take it.

I'm very thankful our group of 13 people (college students) was able to book tickets for the Forbidden City before we arrived in China. Evertything worked out well for us, even when we needed to change the date we had originally selected. Thanks for that extra work!

Easy, smooth entry to the forbidden city. Just showing our passports at the entrance. Great service!

Best way to get tickets, no wait, no problems. When arrived, just showing the passport you have a fast and right access to the Forbidden City. Recommended
