We booked this tour on our first day in Beijing. We weren't sure what to expect, but this tour, from beginning to end, exceeded our desires for a comprehensive tour. We were picked up at our hotel by our tour guide, Leo and a driver. Traffic was heavy and he was a little late, but he called ahead to let us know. The car was comfortable and they even provided bottled water. Leo was friendly, spoke excellent english, was patient with our questions, and was knowledgeable about every aspect of the city. We highly recommend touring this way. We were able to enjoy the day and never felt rushed or overcrowded. Leo knew the exact times for us to visit each site as not to run into crowds that were too large. The sites speak for themselves! Rich history. We made plenty of great memories and captured unforgettable photos of all of the major places. Lunch was at a local Hot Pot restaurant. One word, delicious! Thanks Viator for providing a day to remember, that was exactly as advertised. No complaints at all! Worth every penny!!
