Awesome way to experience the forbidden city
With Helen's commentary and guidance, we really enjoyed our tour of the square and the forbidden city. It was bitterly cold (-4c) and helen adjusted our tour to suit our interest and even found all the areas with sun to warm us up. She really knew her history and didn't bore us at all. We loved hearing about all the little details like the lion statues and the rooftop figurines. Definitely recommended and thank you Helen!
Private Forbidden City Tour
We took a tour of The Forbidden City with Helena and from Leo' s private tour's. It was amazing, we really didn't understand the vastness of the complex before arriving, each corner layered with history. Many of the more interesting sections are off the main pathway, don't be scared to wander of the main through road, lots of interesting discoveries to be made where most of the tourists aren't. Our guide Helena was exceptional, fantastic knowledge and also great fun. Give yourself at least 2 hours to really take it all in.
One of the best tours I’ve ever experienced!
Helena (hanshufang), our tour guide was absolutely amazing! She was such a joy to be with and she constantly asks if you want a picture at major sites or if you want a break or water. She knows so much historical information! She was funny as well and she navigated us smoothly throughout our entire tour and gave us the most helpful hints for when she would eventually leave us at the end of the tour. She is the best tour guide ever! All 3 of us agreed.
Great tour (again) with Leo’s
For the third time this year we chose a private tour of The Palace Museum with Leo’s and for the second time we were lucky enough to get Helen as our guide. Previously we’ve had grownups and small kids with us, this time we had an elderly relative in a wheelchair.
Once again it turned out to be a great experience. Helen advised us where the DiDi should drop us off since we couldn’t arrive by subway, and walked us to Tian’anmen.
We were able to set the pace in order for the whole group to be able to complete the marathon that the Palace Museum can be, and Helen was really helpful and flexible.
It turned out to be a very enjoyable day. We cut the normal timeframe somewhat, and at the end Helen fought her way thru the crowds and chaos by the bus stops between the Palace Museum and Jingshan Park in order to help us meet our DiDi. Can’t compliment Leo’s and Helen enough!
Thank YOU Helen - you are a sensational guide. We thoroughly enoyed our afternoon and your patience with our two young sons. Your knowldege of the area and pace of our tour was spot on. I would highly recommend this tour.
