The best tour I did during my stay. Very informative tour guide (Lee). 1 1/2 hours to go up and down the Great Wall is a bit short and you have to rush to make it to the top. My tour partner only made it half way. Very early return to the hotel, so 2 to 2 1/2 hours would be possible.

Climbing the Great Wall, an experience I will never forget. A must do in Beijing. Our guide and driver were fantastic. We love Viator, use them on every trip we take.

We didn't visit Badaling, but went to another section that was a stopping point for the emperor when visiting Mongolia. Our tour guide was very informative and helpful.

As usual, Viator provided a very interesting tour with a very knowledgeable and personable guide, As luck would have it, we were the only two people on the tour that particular day, so we had what turned out to be a "private" tour. Both the Great Wall and the Ming Tombs are, without a doubt, two of the world's most impressive sites and should not be missed when one visits the Beijing area. One word of caution, however: The word "antique" appears to be used a bit liberally in the gift shops near the Great Wall.

Tour guide is very knowledgeable of the Badaling part of the Great Wall of China. She told us to go the less crowded side of the wall so we could get a better view of the wall and take better pictures. This way we could also have an easier time hiking all the way to the top if we want to, which we did.

Wow! The Great Wall was quite the experience. Difficult climbing at times. Too many stops at "shops". Maybe there should be a tour just for shoppers. The lunch was very good. Cherry was excellent guide and answered our many questions. She gave commentary most of the time we were travelling between sites.
