A Recent Review of this tour

Alexandra delivered as promised! She worked with the driver to navigate through the rush hour traffic, and got me through the crowds at each site without sacrificing anything. Loved Alexandra's knowledge and ability to communicate what we were seeing. Highly recommend this very friendly, energetic personality! Thanks for a great day and see you soon for other activities Alex. Lunch in the Hutong was superb too!
