My wife and I were picked up from the hotel promptly at the appointed hour of 9am by our tour guide 'Susan'. First stop was the Wild Goose Pagoda where are tour guide gave a marvellous briefing about what we would see and why, and while there gave full and excellent explanations of what we were looking, explaining the importance of what had taken place there. Fascinating place! Next stop was the museum. Again our guide gave us very good advice about how to get around the place, mainly to focus upon what interested us directly rather than aimlessly wondering around. It was a little busy and we were grateful that the weather was cool as the press of people in the museum could have been quite oppressive otherwise. Next stop was lunch. We were taken to a genuine, local Chinese restaurant where we had an excellent, substantial and tasty meal that comprised of two dishes that we chose with advice! We were very surprised at just how good the food was as we had never had those dishes in Chinese restaurants anywhere else in the world. Following our lunch we were taken to the City Wall just breath-taking! After taking a stroll in both directions to view the ramparts and sentry buildings we vowed to return and circumnavigate it! Our last destination was the Great Mosque. Now, what was surprising upon our arrival there was that we realised that in complete ignorance, that we had walked right passed the entrance two days previously not knowing it was there. Indeed, I would sum up this excellent private tour with that fact in mind. We would never have seen the sights that we saw if we had not booked this tour, I really mean that we would not have made it on our own we would never have had the very erudite explanations of what we were looking at if we had not taken this tour we would have been stressed out for sure trying to get to these sights on our own. It was an excellent tour, the guide was excellent, and it was exceptional value for money. I recommend it!
