Great Tour. Our Tour guide was lovely and informative. Lunch was really good and the cable car up and toboggan ride down were a pleasant surprise. Would definitely recommend this trip!

When (at last) arriving at the Wall the site is very beautiful and peaceful, BUT 5 hours transportation each way is TO MUCH!
I would recommend using the subway out to the city limit and from there travel with bus.

Awesome Awesome tour. William our guide was fantastic. I was only in Beijing for two days and my only recommendation to people doing this tour is to plan on your calves being sore as this part of the wall has a lot less people but a lot more steps. Because of rain/drizzle safety issue to use then the toboggan was closed when we went the length and then came back where we started to access the cable car. My iPhone said I did the equivalent to 90 floors! Would not have missed this for the world though.

Amazing tour. I arranged this tour on a short notice - less than 24 hours - and everything worked fine. The guide was very knowledgeable and nice. Great lunch. I really recommend.

Yes, it was well worth the amount of money I paid for the trip. The tour guide took us walking the whole section of the Mutianyu wall. Spent about 3 to 4 hours hiking and taking pictures of the wall. We also got to ride the toboggan down which was a highlight. They pick me up at my hotel and dropped me off after the tour.

Great trip to the great wall. Our tour guide, Maria was great too. We took the chair lift up and the tobagon ride down. We only had one day in Beijing and chose the Great Wall tour. We were not disappointed. Maria also recommended a dinner place, Dadong, to have Peking duck. It was yummy.

The tour was great. Our guide gave us good guidelines to follow once we were in the Great Wall which helped a lot maximise our time to see a great part of the Wall. Lunch was very good.
