Hi! I'd like to ask how much is the tour for 3 persons? Is the rate different for a child? We'll be going to Beijing on May 23, 2014. As I have yet to book a hotel, I want to ask if you have a specific hotel area where you will pick up passengers or can you pick up wherever we are staying. Please advise. Thank you!
