Hi, I had a great time in Beijing with 1 day tour to Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. Although duration of the trip was short as compared to the places to visit in Beijing but it was nice whatever I could see in such a short span. The tour was nice and great. Our tour guide and driver are very helpful and kind. Please convey my appreciation to them for a good work. I will back next year and take other tours with you again!

If you don’t have many days in Beijing, I recommend you the Badaling Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square bus tour to visit the most famous places there. I just had layover time in Beijing. My flight land Beijing at 5:50am and departure at 22:00pm the same. Lisa recommended me this bus tour. It was cheap and can visit the places I prefer. To save more money, I took the taxi to wait the pick up in downtown and back to the airport after the tour. This tour was really wonderful!

Written by: Cindy Agnes ★★★★★ Added: 2015-01-15

I planned to visit the Mutianyu Great Wall and Forbidden City first, but I searched many times there is no group tour and the private tour was expensive for my. So I chose the 1 Day Bus Tour: Badaling Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square first. This tour was really good. The tour guide Yoyo was nice and we got well with her the whole day.

Written by: Sheila ★★★★☆ Added: 2015-01-05

The day trip was very nice. In the morning I did see the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Since its little earlier, there were less crowded people got a line there and my tour guide quickly got train tickets at exits and arranged all of us go inside. Each place was amazing. In the afternoon, after lunch, we had visited Badaling Great Wall. It was very crowded than Forbidden City. I suggested try earlier to visit than could avoid crowded. But it was really nice trip!

The Badaling Great Wall is highlight during our coach tour. About 2 hours at the Wall, I took cable car up and walk down with other travelers. It spent 5 minutes from bottom of the Wall to top wall, cable car is very convenient transfer methods. It looked very beautiful scenery from top side view whole wall, I liked it very much.

Written by: Rozy ★★★★☆ Added: 2014-10-18

Badaling Great Wall is really amazing. I climbed few minutes and got very tired, under my tour guide helped, I chose cable car up and down. I took lots of photos when I at the top of the Wall. It seemed very beautiful. Green trees, fresh air, although crowded visitors, I could took it clearly. I love Beijing, I love China! I will be back in few days!

Compared with Ming Tombs, I prefer Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. So I chose this tour to join Beijing main tourist attraction. As I know, Beijing’s fabulous Forbidden City is the large place complex in the world. It is No 1 include in all Beijing tours route. I suggest who come to Beijing, do not forget this unique place.

I had a wonderful and excellent day tour in Beijing with my family. The tour guide was unique, she could speak fluently English and always told a story for us. Either did see the beautiful scenery, or got lots of knowledge from my tour guide. The driver also very perfect, he could drive very smoothly. Thank you for your hark work, I will be back and take your service again.

First, I was recommended by my tour advisor. She suggested me to visit Badaling Great Wall with Ming Tombs, only 20USD for one person. As I am not interesting in Ming Tomb, she gave me another optional, like Badaling Great Wall with Forbidden City, another is Badaling Great Wall with Summer Palace. At last I chose Badaling Great Wall an Forbidden City. I t was very excellent tour, everything went smoothly. Thank you for my trip advisor.

Visited the Great Wall at Badaling with my son and it was really amazing! We were very lucky the weather was so great, with clear blue skies and fluffy white clouds all over the countryside! The section was packed with tourists that day went there – no wonder it was so popular. It was extremely hot and humid, too! We run across many Chinese ladies walking the wall with umbrellas protecting them from the sun – really smart and fashion! Highly recommend to bring some bottled water and hike along the path least crowded! Going with a tour group, it was kind of in a rush, yet we managed to enjoy a wonderful time just taking in the sights. The history our guide told us made our trek more fun and enjoyable! The trek was easy in the beginning yet got surprisingly steep and slippery in some locations – that is what made it so challenging and part of the fun! Overall, we really enjoyed visiting the wall!

I had a full day and really enjoyed a good time exploring central Beijing. I visited the iconic Tiananmen Square and the magnificent Forbidden City. It was so much fun and amazing to see Chinese style buildings up close and personal. I really liked then a lot and got many pictures taken. Our tour guide was great too.

It was a superb introduction to the history of the city and Great Wall. We walked around explored the Wall, Forbidden City as well as Tiananmen Square. We learnt a lot about the history and culture of China. We did see lots of new places and experience lots of new things. Would not hesitate to recommend to others!

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to work with the group. Enjoyed the ancient palace, Forbidden City. The palace is just huge and authentic with its architecture. Overall, the trip was really well organized. Everything is set up and taken care of when you get over there. It saves money and it relieves the stress.

Written by: Finger ★★★★★ Added: 2013-01-12

I would say the Great Wall at Badaling and Forbidden City really are the representatives of Beijing as almost everyone in Beijing will visit both of them, of course they are always crowded. Hearing the explanation of tour guide and standing in the small courtyard in Forbidden City, I like this feeling to image something happened of the day. Very good!

Written by: Burke ★★★★★ Added: 2013-01-05

It was a worth tour to visit the most representative two spots of Beijing. Including the Great Wall at Badaling and Forbidden City, it leaded us to enjoy the long history and abundant culture of China, with cheapest price and considerable supporting service. I like it very much and recommend to everyone who would like to travel Beijing.

I would like to say that our one day bus tour to Badaling, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square is wonderful that beyond my imagination. Although just one day we got to know a lot about the history of Beijing as if we have been here several times. Also I am interested in Peking Opera Show, but due to the tight time, we didn't have the chance. That's a pity! All in all the services you provide make us feel very satisfied. So we will come again in the near future, see you next time!

Few days ago, we booked this 1 Day tour to some famous places in Beijing such as Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Badaling Great Wall. It was very convenient and fast when booking as well as interesting experience during the trip. The tour guide is very kind and professional. Also, the tour was quite cheap and service was excellent. We were completely satisfied. Thanks.

Written by: MEHER AYESHA ★★★★★ Added: 2011-10-20

The tour was great and value for the money. The only thing we do not have interest is the Jade Shops and which cost about 30 min stop. Badaling Great wall trip is the most scenic. The other sites were all amazing. The tour guide was well in English and knoledgeable. This tour nice then!
