We were in Beijing for three days and while our tour did cover the Great Wall and Forbidden City, we found it a bit disappointing and Ritz Tours to be rather self-serving. First we had to wait at the airport for an extra hour so that the other 50% of the people on our tour (whom we did not know) to arrive. The airport is maybe a $5-10 cab ride so it seemed a bit cheap of Ritz to make us waste time like that, especially considering we were only in Beijing for only three days total. That wiped out any possibility of being able to see a museum on the first day.

The next two days were jam-packed, with good cultural stops as well as gratutitous "friendship shops" and other shopping stops that featured prices that were 10-20 times street prices and no bargaining. There was no time for us to shop outside these "friendship shops" and no time for us to go to museums or explore the city.

We complained and the tour guide said that it was Ritz Tours policy and that he could not skip these stops. Frankly, it felt like Rtiz Tours cared about lining its own pockets more than making sure the customers were happy or using our time wisely. I would have much preferred just taking a cab to see the Forbidden City and Great Wall on the two mornings and then having our afternoons free to shop and explore the city. I will never use Ritz Tours again and will probably not use any tours since it seems pretty standard for tour companies to abuse visitors' time in order to make a small commission on overpriced stops.

Pros: Comfortable tour, got to see Great Wall and Forbidden City

Cons: Gratutitous stops, overpriced shops, low quality lunch, lots of time wasted, never gave us flight info so we had to call a lot from China
