Lisa was our tour guide this morning. She was very knowledgeable on the history surrounding the forbidden Palace, as well as related Chinese histories. She was also very patient in answering any questions that we had. The tour was well paced with 1 coffee stop in between, which was well timed as it was really cold this morning.
Enjoyed thoroughly

Sally was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well and we were thankful we had a tour guide as my daughter had been there previously with the in ear guide and she said that having a tour guide to navigate the sprawling grounds was a definite benefit.

Would very much recommend. Thank you Sally :)
terrific

Was a terrific tour. Tour operator communication and coordination was VERY good. Be advised that the hotel pick up does not include hotel return. That was ok, they secured a taxi for the return trip. The guide was great!! would highly recommend this operator.
