Anhalt's 7 Days Beijing Tour Packages

Five Days in Beijing

My 11 year old adopted daughter and I went on her first trip back to her birth country. Her mom and sister were busy, so it was just the two of us, and we had limited time. I decided to pick one city, Beijing, and explore. I checked with a couple travel agencies, and am glad that we went with China Culture Tours and had Lily Liu as a guide. Four four days, Lily and our great driver, Mr. Jiang, met us at our hotel (Regent Beijing), and took us to the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, the zoo, the Olympic Village, and various shopping areas when we asked (but never with any pressure to buy).

Lily did a great job answering my endless questions, while also keeping things fun for my daughter who is no fan of anything resembling a museum.

Lily also took us to restaurants for lunch daily that were great, ordered a great selection of items that were all included in the price of the trip, and were not tourist restaurants (except at Great Wall where everyone is sort of a tourist).

Lily and our driver stayed in regular contact so that he would arrive quickly when we were done, ready to take us to the next place. Speaking of the driver Mr. Jiang -- it was unexpectedly cold when we were in Beijing and my daughter's hands were very cold. In the evenings on our own, we searched for two days to find her gloves, which are not easy to find in April. Mr. Jiang went searching on his own time after we were done for the day, and eventually found a store that had packed up all of its winter items in storage, including gloves. He and they then went digging through the warehouse until they got her some gloves, and gave them to her as a special gift. Nice!

Once Lily found out we did not have evening plans, she booked us great sets at two amazing shows, the Legend of Kung Fu and the Golden Mask. Both were unforgettable, and I highly suggest you go with the guider’s recommendation for the better seats, which are more expensive, but completely worth the added cost.

I also understand that advance planning and scheduling is important, and we were lucky to have Bella Ting Ting as our CCT home office travel advisor who helped set up the trip, make hotel recommendations and reservations, and wisely suggested that we switch the order of our trips to go to the Great Wall before the Tomb Sweeping Holiday when there would be lots of Chinese tourists going there. That change saves us many hours of traffic and lines, and allowed us to experience the Great Wall with very few people on it. Bella served a very important function of making you feel as though you have friends in China waiting for you to arrive and show you their fabulous country.

I can highly recommend China Culture Tours as an agency, Lily Liu as a Beijing guide, Bella Ting Ting as an advisor, and Mr. Jiang as a driver.

Hi Bella: 

Thanks for your help in arranging out trip. I actually drafted a WeChat thank-you to you while on the plane before returning to the U.S., but it failed to send. Anyway, I did just post a Travel Advisor review mentioning you, and our local guide and driver. 

Best regards,

Jeff Anhalt
