  • The Forbidden City was amazing, so much to see. The clock room and treasure room were also worthwhile the see. My guide, Clement, shared a lot of the history with me which made it even better.

  • Amazing structures. Lots of history and beautiful surroundings. People in traditional costume. Very crowded but well worth the visit.

  • One of the coolest old Ancient places in the People Republic of China. Although I was with a guide, Cop we're a little bit strict but the Chinese people were very friendly. One of the men even gave our team a Chinese sweet which was awesome. The area is usually crowded but it's one of the places where everyone in the world should visit.
  • We absolutely had to visit Forbidden City while in Beijing. So much history, so much to see and learn. Very nice people.. one of the locals, very nice guy, gave us a guided tour of the entire place. He was so knowledgeable. Great experience!! A must see!!! My daughter loved every minute of it.
