Everything from the pickup till the end of the tour was organized. Our guide, Tina has a superb personality and knowledge of the palace, Forbidden City. A tour to the ancient palace of China is also a must after hike the Great Wall. We took the best photos in several best and important parts inside the palace (which more than like a city).

Loved this tour, great start to what was a wonderful trip for my husband and I! The palace visit was worth it and interesting, it was easy to arrange collection from our hotel. We did enjoy the tour and all information that we could get. Everything I wanted it to be. Need to come back to visit Forbidden City again next time.

A cool experience in Forbidden City with a helpful tour guide. Amazing place to visit and definitely is a must do’s in Beijing. It is a huge compound with thousands of lodgings fit for an emperor has 3000 wives. End of May was not really crowded, no hawkers to sell trinkets, but once outside, it was different. A ginormous place to lose yourself for a Beijing vacation.

What an exciting place in Beijing half day tour! Once you walk in it, the experience is serene and peaceful. The sites in it are preserved well, and I cannot believe my eyes. Many invaluable assets I have never seen in one place. I love this fantastic tour with our professional tour guide Linda. We will back to China next vacation.

I had a nice time going to the Palace. There are so many areas to explore and the guide offer us a great explaination. But the half day was short to see the whole palace. It was a very impressive site steeped in history, a must see!

I should have written to you earlier, but I have been very busy after coming home from China. We had a wonderful Beijing tour, everything you organized for us worked 100%, and the guides were full of knowledge, friendly and helpful. The tour guide was extremely helpful, directing us to the proper gate and wishing us safe travel in the airport. We will surely recommend the Beijinglandscapes.com to our friends we know for their trip to China. Thank you again for an excellent experience.
