Shanghai Museum Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Very interesting place. Loved walking around on our own and choosing what we wanted to see. We had plenty of time at a relaxed pace.




The Bund Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Amazing sites but it was hot that day. I would have rather had another excursion than the brief walk we took.




Yu Gardens Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Our first excursion. It was the perfect introduction to China. Beautiful buildings and gardens, relaxed pace, great information.

Badaling Great Wall Rating: 5+ out of 5+

Amazing amazing amazing!!! Great amount of time given. Perfect amount of free time with lots to do. We walked just a little of the wall, took lots of pictures and had a great time shopping!!




Forbidden City Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

We spent alot of time here, maybe more than I wanted to, however since we walked south to north to meet the bus there wasnt alot of choice. The walk was long but broken up with stops so wasnt hard.




Summer Palace Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

I enjoyed the excursion but would have liked to spend more time there. The weather was very misty but it was great anyway. There is alot to see at this stop so just felt like it was a bit rushed.




Tiananmen Square Rating: 2.0 out of 5+

Not really thrilled with this stop. I am not sure that I understand the meaning and that could be part of it. Also we only got about 10 minutes there because they closed the square for some visiting dignitaries.
