Overall it was a good tour. Though I'd wished we would spend more time in the Forbidden City. This was too much of a rush and explanations have been very few. We went to a pearl shop which was kinda "exit through the gift shop" style. We had to spend at lease half an hour here. That was really annoying. Also the visit to the local hospital was more a selling event. At the palace of heaven we just got some time to explore. No guiding at all here. Same for the summer palace. There it was impossible to see anything with the one hour we got. Transport was good though. Although I got at least five different pickup times.
