Although my trip has changed to go Gubei water town last minutes due to the roadworks, I appreciate the prompt confirmation from the tour agency.

My experience with them is extremely great. Me and my mum had great time at the water town. Angie and the chauffeur, mr Zhang, were friendly too.

This is one of very interesting new spot destination around Beijing. We went there as a who.e family with grandpa and grandma and children. They have fun walking and cable car. Miss Angie, our tour guide is also very informative with any knowledge about history, education, and recent issues so we can hear from her a lot of information. The lunch is served well especially for the two of us who are vegetarian.

Well done, reccomended to use this operator and any selected destionation from this operator. Thanksss

The excursion to the countryside was great, nice to escape the hustle and bustle of Beijing. Be prepared to clime a significant amount of stairs even after taking the cable cars most of the way up. But the platform is really cool, and the views are spectacular.
