Long story short: if you are thinking about a tour in Beijing book it with Discovery Beijing tours! By the end of the experience you’ll feel whatever you paid was an absolute bargain.
I was traveling alone in China for business and decided to explore Beijing at the end of my trip. Based on the Trip Advisor reviews I reached out to Discovery Beijing Tours to explore the possibility of a two day tour and Qing was very responsive to my inquiries at all hours of the day. I was sent a personalized itinerary, detailed overview of what was included in the cost and advice for my time in Beijing. Needless to say I was very excited!
Joe was my driver during my stay and he was great, picking me up from the train station when I arrived from Shanghai and was a master at navigating the packed Beijing streets as we drove between tour sites. My tour guide during the two days, Kelly, was a pleasure to be around. She was personable, knowledgeable and very friendly! Her English skills left nothing to be desired and I felt like we had become friends by the end of the two days, showing each other pictures of our friends and family during our downtime in the car. We visited so many amazing spots, highlighted by the Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace. The acrobatic show that capped off the trip was impressive as well.
I will be recommending Discover Beijing Tours to my friends and family if they are ever looking to visit Beijing and hope to go back to tour more with them myself!
