It started early at 7:00 a.m. and it was the last day of spring festival. No traffic, no people at the wall until later in the morning. Cherry, the tour guide was informative, kind and patient with me. My phone battery went dead so Cherry took pictures of me which I would like her to email to me. The Ming Tomb was great, the jade factory and the tea shop. I enjoyed the entire day. Couldn't have been nicer.
This was a great experience. I read some of the reviews and was concerned about the booking, however, I simply confirmed a few days in advance and the kind guide called my hotel the night before to confirm again. They picked me up from the hotel and made everything very smooth. The guides English was very good and he shared many good stories. The timing was great, but it ended a little early, would have liked to know that so I could plan accordingly. There were some visits to a Jade market, and tea shop where they tried to push a sale, so you have to be ok with that. I liked it so much, I signed up the next day for another tour.
Cynthia, our tour guide was pleasent, knowledgeable, funny and very helpful. We enjoyed our tour. It was amazing. Thank you.

We chose a a rainy Thursday to visit the Great Wall of China, and we were very (positively) surprised when we realized we were the only people that were on the tour that day. We basically had a dedicated driver and guide who brought us to all the attractions, and we had plenty of time to visit everything in great detail. It was an amazing tour, highly recommended.
This is something that you only can experience once in a lifetime. It is truly spectacular! It was tough climbing but it was nice that our guide took us to a less busy area of the wall. The ming tombs were also awesome.
Michael was amazing--his command of the English language was excellent--his knowledge incredible.
He really made the tour for us.
We were lucky with the weather as well-and as it was fall--the beauty of the area was uplifting.
Really enjoyed. I liked the small group of 8 on the tour. Cherry was very good. They kept the tour going and told us the history.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and was friendly
The driver was friendly and got us to our destinations safely and timely
