This was one of the best tours I’ve had. If you want to see China and particularly the major attractions like the Great Wall, The Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square then you must book this tour with Lucy.

She was early picking me up in my hotel lobby and then adjusted our schedule to fit my needs and avoid the lines and crowds. Went to The Great Wall first and she took care of me every step of the way, even buying a poncho cause it was snowing. She gave me great history and hiked the Wall with me. Once finished she took me to an amazing authentic lunch catering to my likes and order so much food I had a chance to try it all.

We then did Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City. It was amazing how she brought it all alive teaching me facts along the way. Once finished here she adjusted again having me dropped off at the train station for my train out instead of back to the hotel starting point.

It was truly amazing and an unbelievable experience. If/when I return to China I will definitely contact her to continue my experience of Chinese history! A must book!
