Beijing (B, L, D)

Sightseeing: Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven
Lunch: Imperial Cuisine at Fangshan Restaurant
Dinner: Beijing Roast Duck

After breakfast, visit Tiananmen Square, the symbolical heart of China and gathering place for the masses. It is the biggest public square in the world, which can hold one million people

From here we walk across the Golden River Bridge to visit the Forbidden City and experience ancient Emperor's daily life. For 5 centuries Chinese emperors carried out their administration here. With almost 10,000 rooms, this was the centre of the Ming and Qing dynasties, a massive complex of palaces, pavilions, courtyards and gardens where 24 emperors used to live. Forbidden City was the largest palace in the world, and it was indeed a forbidden place limited to commoners for 500 year in the past. Your tour here will include private access to the Emperor's palace.

For lunch you will enjoy Imperial Cuisine at Fangshan Restaurant, located on an island in Beihai Park.

After lunch, visit the Temple of Heaven. The temple of Heaven was where the Emperor came every winter solstice to worship heaven and to solemnly pray for a good harvest. With the three blue-tiled cone-shaped roofs, a unique wooden and blue-tiled structure built without a nail, it has become a worldwide symbol of Beijing.

Tonight attend a welcome dinner banquet featuring Beijing Roast Duck.

2. What do you think of our driver service?
The drive service is excellent. But if he could understand a bit of English would be better.

Thank you for your mail and the photo!!! We are fine and I hope you are fine too!!!

1. What do you think of our guide service?
All the guides you proposed us were excellent! Very kind and nice, we have been very happy to meet them.

2. What do you think of our driver service?
The same as the guides, excellent drivers, we had no problems and we felt safe on the road.

3. Which meal makes you memorable? Please name the reason why you like or dislike it?
The dinner with you of course! :-) However the food has been very good everywhere apart the lunch on the boat at Guilin that was really very very poor. We did not like it at all.

Because we have already been in China with your T.O. and we had been satisfied.

5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?
Many parts, from the terraces of Guilin to the old part of Lijiang to the Potala Palace, everything was very interesting! As I told you this third tour was the best one for us: the weather was fine and not foggy, many interesting things to see and people is more kind in this south part of China, also the guides. We think we will do the fourth tour in the next two years :-)

No other suggestion, everything was OK

I wish you a nice day,

A very big hug from Manuela

Thank your for all your organizing and help with our trip.  Cici in Beijing, Wendy in Xian and Lee in Quilin were all fantastic tour guides.  It was wonderful to see Lee again.  She was our guide in 2014 when we visited Guilin and Yangshuo.   Your agency helped us with our trip that time too.

Thanks for the lovely tea cups - they will always be reminders of a special time our family had on our holiday in China.

If there are any websites you would like us to post reviews, we will be happy to do so.

Comment on our service from Yuyi Yeow, singapore

I must commend your team as well as our guide and driver for their excellent service and job done. We were very satisfied with the arrangements.

Thank you for your follow-up email. I must commend your team as well as our guide and driver for their excellent service and job done.

My young son felt at home with her, and she went out of her way to take care of him and entertain him during the trip. She was also very knowledgeable about most things that we had questions about. We were very satisfied with the arrangements.

I've attached a few photos of us having a great time. We were lucky to experience good weather in Nanjing as well during our travels, with no rain and warm temperatures.

  

Will definitely contact you when we next return to China.

Best Regards,
Yuyi
