Hi,

My wife and I have booked a full Far East Voyage on QM2 January to April 2019.

We are looking at an overnight stay in Beijing from Tianjin as part of a two day privately organised tour of Beijing and Great Wall. As a rule of thumb for long tours like this we go with the Ship Excursion programme, however this one could be quite expensive with Cunard. The first question is; has anyone done this trip with Cunard or other lines and what was the cost per couple. We have seen costs of $1600 per couple on other sites.

The second question; does anyone have any experience with China Highlights who offer the same Excursion (with no shopping) and it fits the bill for us.

Would appreciate any feedback from people who have done this with either Cunard/Other Cruiselines and anyone who has had experience with the tour Company China Highlights.

Thanks in anticipation,
