What a day! David Zhou our tour guide was excellent. He was right on time just as he said he would be. David is very knowledgeable and his English is excellent. David was very helpful, he took time to explain Chinese history which helped us better understand all the magnificent sights we saw today. Beijing is a fascinating city and David made it so interesting. David was very understanding of our needs. We are older, it was very hot today but he made sure we rested when necessary and gave us many toilet opportunities which is important. He is a very nice young man and made our visit in Beijing very special.

We also want to acknowledge Mr. Cui our driver. He was excellent, he knows his way around Beijing and we felt safe and comfortable. Mr. Cui's car was very nice and very comfortable to ride in.

Thank you to both David and Mr. Cui, what a great day.

I visited the Great Wall last year, so this time I spent my time in Beijing city downtown area. The building of ancient China was really beautiful and delicate. I also knew much culture and stories about them. Patrick was really informative. I had a great day visiting Beijing city sightseeing!

As I did not want to get up earlier, and the bus tour was started very earlier. My trip advisor, Juliet recommended private tour for us and gave us a big discount for we total 12 visitors. She arranged a very professional and helpful tour guide for us. The driver also was very kindly. He always waited us at exit of tour places. Thank you so much for Beijinglandscapes.

My family and I had an unforgettable trip in Beijing, we have visited Beijing main tourist place, such as Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace whole day tour. I would prefer Temple of Heaven as it is very sacred place for praying, but many visitors were around there. Highly recommend!

I booked the Beijing city private tour to Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace for my parents online during their trip in Beijing. They said their tour guide Lily was really good girl. She was helpful, patient and knowledgeable. They liked Chinese food very much. They also recommend me take the tour and I really hope I also have chance to take the tour with Beijinglandscapes.com in the future.

By far the most impressive day trip I did in Beijing for the last few days! All I had to do is follow my guide and take in historic sights in the city. It is really amazing to see so many historic attractions on that day! I loved them all! The Forbidden City is no doubt the highlight of my trip to Beijing. The palace is really huge and I felt kind of dizzy while moving around the palace. There were so many fascinating sights to take in inside the palace. The Summer Palace is also my favorite sight. I really enjoyed a fantastic walk in the park. The attractions were impressive too and completely blew me away! My trip to the park was more relaxing and not in a rush like I was in the imperial palace. I really loved it! Overall, the trip went just like I expected and could not been better! Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed this tour. My family and I, in total of 6 people of us, we were able to explore famous historical destinations inside the city. In every destination, we even made a couple of stops at some viewpoints where I took amazing pictures. Really enjoyed the good weather and the sightseeing during this one whole day tour. Would recommend the trip to friends!

Everything went well as planned. The Forbidden City and Summer Palace was amazing as we knew before. We did learn a lot of China history and culture from the trip. From our experience, I completely recommend it. If we had more time, I would have stayed in Beijing longer. A trip not to be missed!

Summer Palace was just a wonderful place with breathtaking sceneries! It was a residence, a palace for the emperor when summer comes in Beijing. There had a huge lake with many historical relics around the area. After the tour, we did know about history and facts about the palace. More than that, we were also had visited two other famous attractions include Temple of Heaven and Forbidden City. A great tour, nice experience!

1 day trip visited Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. Summer Palace was a very fascinating royal garden in Beijing! The scenery was so amazing and brilliant! Different from another historical site in Beijing, Summer Palace offers authentic stunning garden view around. Took lots of beautiful photos around with my family. Very happy during the trip and we had some new experience after that. Thank you!

In this one day tour, we visited many attractive and famous destinations such as, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. Every place has its own characteristic and should not be missed when come to Beijing. The most beautiful one is Summer Palace. There has a big lake and the nature sightseeing was very good. We also got enough time to take some photos and enjoy the view around during the tour. Very great tour that I can suggest to everyone!

What a great trip that I had when I visit Beijing last time. The sightseeing was very amazing and beautiful. We visited Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace in one day. It was very worth trip. Those are some must visit places in Beijing. Forbidden City is a very impressive imperial palace. We heard from the tour guide that yellow is the symbol of the royal family so it is become the dominant color in the Forbidden City. Overall, the trip was so meaningful and awesome!

Overall I love the tour! Because our time was limited in Beijing, so we only take one day Private Tour. We visited many interesting places such as, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. All of the places were very interesting and unique. We had a plenty time at each of the stops for taking photos. I absolutely love the imperial building and architecture of Forbidden City, it is amazing! We can also know about the history of royal family and the palace in China. Highly recommended tour!

Just one day, we knew the imperial history and culture of China, due to visit the imperial architectural complexes including Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. How wonderful it is! And we easily find a same point of them – they were both the imperial places in ancient China. And now the Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace have become the exercising parks for local people, and Forbidden City still is one of the attractions of Beijing with the walls within walls. However, nothing beats being able to feast your eyes on these magnificent buildings and surroundings with so much history behind them. Really worth the one day Beijing tour!
