The guide Thomas was fantastic! Provided great info while not being overbearing as some guides can be. I would do it again in a heartbeat! BEST GREAT WALL TOUR! I had been to the other sections but Badaling was by far the most scenic. Try to go to the great wall first thing in the morning to avoid the corwds.

The tour guide did a great job and I recommend this tour to anyone interested in visiting sites in and around Beijing.
Caroline T USA
Great tour! Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Many other stops along the way give you a good view of the city, and see things you may not have gone to see.

Excellent trip, with a lovely and knowledgable guide, Thomas. He really madde the trip for us, and we saw the best bits of the wall, the ming tombs, and the sacred path. Thomas' knowledge and language skills were excellent and i'd recommend this trip as a good all rounder from Beijing. Only down side was the compulsory shopping trips to the Jade market and Tea shops. We were the only ones on the tour, so when we said we didn't actually drink tea and didn't need to buy any, we weren't treated very nicely by the shop staff. Nothing to do with the guide though.

I booked a 'group tour' expecting a bus; however, it ended up being me, the driver and the tour guide all day. I thought the Ming Tombs were a waste of time. You see one temple, and then a mound of dirt where the tombs are said to be, and that's it. Then you go onto the Great Wall which was one of the best experiences of my life. Everyone who visits China has got to go to the wall. I was grinning ear to ear the whole time even though it was -2 degrees and there was snow everywhere. The only issue I had was that I was back at my hotel by 2pm and it was meant to be a full day tour.

Our tour guide deserves 5 stars, his knowledge and professionalism were 100 percent. The fact that the tour was carried out with two guests only was another big plus.

Perfect day in the Beijing area. The guides knowledge and history of Ming Tombs was amazing. Lunch was family style, fun! And the Great Wall was more impressive than I could have imagined. Great Tour!
Barbara G United Kingdom
This was part of a day trip we booked. We would highly recommend anyone to take a trip to the Great Wall of China. Be prepared for a steep climb, but well worth the effort as there are amazing views.
Our guide was great! His English was great, and he was very friendly. I ended up having a private tour since no one had booked the trip around my area, so it ended up being on my schedule because of that. This is my second tour and it worked out great!
Michel V Canada
Fantastic view. The guide was flexible with his time, he took us also to the Olympics installation. The Wall is a dream.

Such a fabulous day! I had a private tour as the others booked for the day couldn't get visas to enter China as a group. It was wonderful! My guide spoke fluent English, and we talked a lot about culture, festivals and life in China as well as about the history of the areas I visited. He also gave me a detour on the way home to see the Bird's Nest stadium and to attend a tea ceremony. It was wonderful. A fab day out!

Excellent, knowledgeable English-speaking guide. Humbling experience when you become aware of its history and the time and labour involved to construct.
ALLAN T USA
My family and I loved the transfers and tours. All tour guides were excellent, entertaining, and very knowledgeable.
Trichur R Australia
Very friendly and informed guide. Was a pleasure going on the tour.
Tim S New Zealand
The single most incredible thing I have seen - the Great Wall. Tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable.
Jordan Vernon B Australia
A great tour. The guide gave so much information on everywhere we went and comprehensive information about China itself that I hadn't heard elsewhere. I found the tour entertaining and well organised. It was definitely the highlight in China for me. Highly recommended.
Sheila S United Kingdom
This tour started badly when the vehicle would not start outside hotel. However a new vehicle was dispatched very quickly and off we went, just the 2 of us, on our personal tour. It was excellent and the guide included a visit to a tea ceremony which we hadn't expected. Would recommend.
Stewart F USA
What a great tour guide! One of the new seven wonders of the world - this is a must-do!
PATRICIA S Australia
This was the best! The Great Wall is amazing. It made our trip - we got some great photos.
Mary H USA
I thoroughly enjoyed my climb up the Badaling section of the Great Wall. My knees felt like jelly afterwards however, I would not trade this experience for anything. The Ming Tombs was also another dream come true. Go on this tour especially if you are an English speaking tourist.
Michael B USA
I was traveling alone and having the tour bus pick me up and drop me off at my hotel was a big plus. It is actually cheaper than trying to do the same trip on my own with taxi's, etc. Great value and the tour guide was excellent.
