The show itself was great! The venue was ok, but very crowded. Our party of six could not sit together but no couples were separated. The dinner afterward was great! Plenty of food and our guide was fantastic. If you’re visiting this country for the first time you may want to add this to your list
I want to start by saying that I've had wonderful tours with Viator and our guide and driver on this tour were wonderful. The problem was the show and restaurant were really not. I think the issue was simply that we were the only people on the tour which made the choice of the show and Peking Duck dinner probably difficult to book for the host tour company that Viator uses. The show came first and when we entered we were told that to sit up near the front we would have to pay extra. We did. The show was fine but we were told by the rest of the people in our river cruise group that the show they went to was wonderful. The restaurant selected for the Peking Duck dinner was really sub par and and pretty far out in a suburb. The duck was not crisp and the meal really wasn't good, though the server was very nice and tried hard. I need to add here that we would have happily taken the river cruise optional tours offered but were told that they were sold out which turned out to not be true. But that was why we booked the dinner and show with Viator before leaving for the cruise. We were then comped by our cruise director for the Peking Dinner they offered and it was really so far superior that I was amazed. Perhaps if we hadn't gone on the Peking Duck tour option we wouldn't have known the difference, but I've worked in many and owned a restaurant and I know food and have actually had some pretty good Peking duck in the states so this restaurant on the Viator tour was really lacking without a doubt.
I was the only one on this tour and was terribly uncomfortable when I discovered this. My tour guide was very caring and made sure I didn't get lost in the crowds of people attending this show, but he also made absolutely no effort to chat to me on the journey there or back. I also, of course, went for the Peking Duck Banquet on my own and although the food was very good, I was so uncomfortable eating alone in a restaurant where everyone else was with a party that I'm surprised I was able to eat anything at all. I would have much rather been given the option of cancelling after been told that I was the only one on the tour. The acrobatic show was amazing and really worth seeing, but being on my own, I just felt like a spare part. I was back in my hotel at 8.30 - done and dusted!
