Absolutely unacceptable. From the moment Gale contacted me, she was trying to rip me off. Rude, had a bad tone with me the entire conversation. She tried to sell me a private car via “a friend” for $1k USD. The hotel was offering for 800yen ($125usd). She has snide remarks when I asked anything.

I would not recommend this tour to others frankly.
First, Unlike other tours.. you have to contact your guide first.. however.. our operator Hangtantour could not recieve my emails, calls..
and even Viator's customers service team couldn't reach them.
We wanted to cancel the tour.. but Viator said that there was nothing that they could do.
It was when we arrived at the hotel at beijing when we got the call. Very dissapointing and unconvinient.

Also, our guide, Carolin.. was nice and fun but didn't possess any real tour knowledge.
Rather than i certificated guide.. i think they just send beijing locals.. to have a good trip.
Also she forced us in to some souviner shops in the forbidden city and other places which we didn't know want to buy.

We did have a Fun time.. but did not have Fun Tour.. it was okay.. but we really wanted to hear about the history and
other things that we couldn't get out from our guide book. It was mostly about just friend talks.. or chit chatting all the time.
I would recommend to go on a group tour or a professional tour.. rather than this tour.

Fantastic deal overall. We were able to see and do everything on our list. We definitely would not have been able to do everything with a traditional tour. Would highly recommend!

We again arranged this individual tour thru Viator and fortunately we got William from our first tour of Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, etc. They way it works for individual tour, William met us at the hotel and we told him what we had already seen and what did he recommend. You pay his way as well as yours to the attractions or restaurants. We told him what we had already seen and said we wanted to see the Pandas. He took us to the zoo by subway. Again William was informative, was patient with us with our questions and an overall joy to be with. He was a wealth of information and proud to explain about his country's history and accomplishments. After the zoo we went to the old Beijing where he booked us a rickshaw ride while he narrated on a rental bike from the street. We entered a house of one of the inhabitants who was so proud to show how he lived. He obtained tickets for us for the Circus which was colorful and amazing. He stayed with us the whole time and ensured we enjoyed ourselves and returned us to our hotel. It was a wonderful experience traveling through the different modes of transport with no worries. We met many folks who just wanted to take their photo with Americans. I would highly recommend Viator's individual tour if you can get William.
