Summer Palace Tours


The Summer Palace has a history of over 800 years. The 1911 Revolution overthrew the Qing Dynasty, the last Dynasty in Chinese history. Since then, the Summer Palace became the private property of the dethroned Emperor Puyi. In 1914 he opened the garden to the general public. But the entrance fee was so high that the palace had very few visitors. In 1924, the Emperor Puyi was forced to leave the Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace was taken over by Beijing government. Then, the Summer Palace was turned into a public park with the exorbitant entrance fee of one silver dollar.

There are few people know that the Summer Palace has one of the richest collections of cultural relics in China, probably in the world as well. There are 40,000 relics in collection, including many that are extremely rare. In both historical and artistic value, the collection in the Summer Palace matches the collections of the Forbidden City. The collection includes more than 20,000 relics that are under special protection as national treasures. As a part of the cultural treasures, the 4000,000 trees that also crystallize the essence of Chinese culture have been well looked after. Amongst the trees, 1,600 are more than 200 years old. Every tree has a file and is kept in the Garden's database for protection.

Our tour was very good. We were so pleased to be at the Great Wall at an early time because there was almost no-one else there (8:30-9:00). An hour later and it was full of people. Our photos looked like they were from National Geographic! This was the highlight for us of the day. An amazing experience. Truly wonderful. 

The Jade Factory was very interesting, with a lovely lunch. I would have liked to have lunch with our tour guide to talk more about China, Beijing and the people. Our lady guide at the factory was very nice. Very kind, friendly and knowledgeable. We weren’t hassled to buy and staff left us to look around and answered any questions about the grade of things we looked at.

The Tea House was also interesting but I felt the lady giving the demonstration was trying too hard to sell tea and products. I said no to her several times and yet she persisted. We did buy some things, but she kept pushing to buy something else too. 

The quick stop off at the Birds Nest stadium was a surprise and an inspired decision! Again, a fabulous building and great to see. 

Finally, the Summer Palace. We walked the corridor and I had a lovely conversation with our guide. I would have liked perhaps a further 30 minutes there, but I understand time is tight in just a single day and besides, the Birds Nest was a modern surprise worth seeing. 

Our guide was knowledgeable about the things he showed us, his English was very good (I heard others who were difficult to understand) and he was very patient. I would have liked to exchanged telephone numbers to WhatsApp with him to exchange information about China and our different ways of living, but I don’t know if that would be allowed so I didn’t ask.

I would highly recommend tours with this company and we hope to come back to China for a longer visit, so will certainly book again!

The tour was great, the company is very responsible, tour guides are fun and they know all the history of the places we visited. Nice mini buses with A/C, food was delicious. Definitely I'll say that it's worthy to take tours with these friends!!! Lisbeth ~ Venezuela

I booked the Mutianyu Bus Tour for 12 USD because it is cheaper and has only one side trip (Jade Factory). Our tour was on Oct. 30, 2018. We were picked up from our hostel at exactly 7 am and reached the Mutianyu early in the morning. As they advertised, there are no forced shopping when we were in Jade Factory. There are no hidden charges. We paid exactly 80 CNY per person in cash and nothing more. I'm happy because the mutianyu wall is not very crowded during that morning. We were able to sight see for 4 hours and went back to our meeting place by 1 pm. Since we did not book a free lunch tour, we just bring with us snacks and eat at the Great Wall. We were able to return to our hostel safely by 2 pm and we rested afterwards.
Honestly, I don't think they even profited from us. The great wall ticket already costs around 5.8 USD. The remaining 6 USD barely pays for the gas, driver and the tour guide. I hope many people can know this tour that is cheaper, legit and worth the price. I recommend this agency to anyone who's looking for a cheaper price and good service.

Travel Beijing Tour (Mr. Meng) was very prompt in replying to my queries and saw to it that we have a memorable trip in Beijing and Shanghai. We saw most of the important destinations of Beijing as we took a 3 day tour with Travel Beijing in Nov'18. Also, took a day of Shanghai tour with them as well. The rates were very reasonable and the Best part was that lunch and tour passes were included. The Bus drivers and the tour guides were so prompt (never late) and extremely helpful. Our Heartfelt Thanks and Best Wishes to our tour guides Yoyo and Jackson. Both of them were so patient, polite, and knowledgeable. They were always eager to answer all our questions with great enthusiasm and smile. Jackson went out of his way to help us buy tickets and board the train in the subway station and guided us so well so that we reach Xi'an safely. Yoyo also stopped by the reception of our hotel and requested them to book a safe cab for us to go to the airport next day. Me and my family will always be immensely grateful to Travel Beijing Tour for the amazing and memorable trip of Beijing and Shanghai. Will surely refer travelbeijingtour.com to all my family and friends. Again our special thanks and good wishes to Mr. Meng, Yoyo and Jackson (and of course the expert drivers who drove us safely around).
