The operator VisitOurChina operates with drivers that do not have a commercial license. Our bus was pulled over and we were waiting for over two hours for another bus, missed most of our toor and almost missed my flight. They also take you to places that are not on the itinerary for you to buy things.
Visiting the traditional medical center felt like a scam. We actually fell for it since it was the first stop. Ended up paying more than the tour. I was it for worn. Got my experience and will advice to be watchful for these un wanted stops . They take time away from Main events. Next time a private tour would be better .
The places the tour visits for the most part are incredible - highlights being the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. The tour does take you to other places where they seem to only push you to buy something (pearl store, jade factory, tea house and a massage therapy center). All 4 places were boring as we were not interested in purchasing anything so found them to be a waste of time. Time that could have been spent at the Great Wall and the Summer Palace, which felt shortened. The guides were nice, knowledgable and spoke good enough English, but always felt as if they were in a hurry and therefore hurried us everywhere. The lunch provided with the tour was decent. Soda and water was not included with the lunch. Overall, price of tour was good, but they need to eliminate taking you to non-historical sites.
Relación precio / contenido muy bien. Incluye dos días de tour muy buenos. si tienes pocos días en Beining es una buena opción. Los guías hablan muy bien ingles. Lo que si, como hay tanto que ver y las distancias no son cortas hay veces en que sientes que andas corriendo entre cada atracción. si, en cada parte tienes tiempo suficiente para tomar fotos y mirar lo que hay. Los almuerzos incluidos muy ricos y alcanzan bien para todos. Sacaría los puntos de compras a los que te llevan como lo es el pearl free market y Jade Carving Factor, más que conocer algo más intentan que uno compre algo. Lo mismo con la ceremonia del te, en donde si muestran distintas variedades de te pero finalmente importa más que uno compre... Lo de la Chinese Calligraphy nunca lo vimos, al menos a nosotros no nos toco.
Ok.. to begin with - the positive. The experience of walking through the Forbidden City and walking on the Great Wall was, simply, amazing.
Transportation was delayed, but understandable perhaps with the traffic in Beijing, which is horrendous.
The guide for the Forbidden City tour had good English skills and was helpful and informative about the things we were seeing - particularly at the Forbidden City.
Now - the negative that kept this from being a good or great tour.
Firstly, by comparison, the English skills for the Great Wall guide were less adequate and took some effort to understand during the tour - and she was much less informative possibly because of difficulty with the language.
On both tours, there was a bit of a sense of being taken to locations to be upsold on other products - particularly excursions to the establishments trying to sell Pearls, Jade, and Tea - which detracted from what would have been more beneficial time exploring and taking pictures at the Forbidden City and the Great Wall.
The worst, however, was the excursion to the China Medical Institute - where we were asked if we would be interested in having a doctor examine us - which I volunteered for. Prior to the examination, there was a story presented about an Emperor who declined medical assistance because he felt fine - and who ended up dying with doctors being unable to save him because he waited too long for treatment this is called the foreshadowing.
Then, after having a doctor look in my eyes, look at my hands, and look at my tongue - I was told I had frequent urination problems I don't, that I had back and neck problems I don't and then I was told I was having liver and kidney problems and that I needed 267.00 U.S. worth of herbs and they would take cash or MasterCard to pay for it... with a doctor staying me in the eye and being somewhat indignant when I declined the offer.
The tour should either axe this snake-oil portion of the tour, or at least advise people in advance that a doctor who examines you may request that you purchase medical herbs after examining you - in which case I would most certainly have declined the opportunity. It felt very uncomfortable to turn down the request for payment - and again, took away from time that would have been better spent taking more pictures and having some free time at the Forbidden City.
You get what is advertised and nothing more. Hotel pick up, English speaking guide and comfortable transportation all was good. What could have easily been included was guide commentary during the bus rides about the culture, the history, the social services, the education system. During our travel time, both of our guides spent the time on their personal devices or just chatting with the bus driver.
