Traveller Tips

The Mutianyu section is very steep in some places so I would not recommend it for the elderly or unfit.
We had an email suggesting an early pick up of 7am which was a great idea.

Kevin the guide was very disposable and avaliable to basically everything that we need to know including where to catch the cable car, toboggan, the best restaurant around with local food and how to manage the mutanyu section in the best time. Great experience !
Amazing trip and tour guide (Jamie)
Nick_K, Apr 2020
This trip was excellent! Our driver, Jamie, was really lovely and it was a really nice opportunity to talk to a local and hear more about Beijing. He drove us to the Great Wall and showed us where we should go and gave us some tips about what to look for. It was a really lovely day (even if it was cold!). Afterwards he took us to a local restaurant so we could experience a more 'authentic' experience of Chinese cuisine. Highly recommend this tour and our tour guide, Jamie!
Great experience and very safe driver

David was on time,very polite and pleasant throughout our journey. His driving was very good through the difficult traffic. Our whole experience of the magnificent Great Wall was enhanced by having a driver and private tour. We would recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you David.

Our tour was great. Very comfortable car and plenty of time to explore the wall. One of our daughters actually got sick and our driver was very patient and understanding. We highly recommend this tour and tour company!
Great trip to the Great Wall

My driver Marvin did a great job-- was at my hotel early, had a comfortable car, drove well and I felt very safe the entire time, and he helped me when we arrived and provided ticket to enter, and showed me where to go and where to meet him at the end. Overall a great experience- highly recommended!
The Great Wall
Lynn_B, Oct 2019
We enjoyed our trip to the Great Wall. Our driver picked us up promptly. He was very nice but his English was limited. He tried hard and did use a translator on his phone. He helped us get tickets and rode the cable car to the top for the start of our wall adventure. We met him later at the Subway at the bottom and he had a table waiting for us as we got our food. He took several great pictures of us at the wall but we never received them by email like he noted. It has now been over a week and a half ago. Overall it was a great trip but we were disappointed that we did not have a driver that we could easily communicate with. Reviews I read before booking stated great English speaking drivers and that was what we had expected to experience and gain more knowledge than we did.
Best ride to the great wall!

Our driver Alvin was amazing! I recommend it to everyone who wants to know the Great wall. The travel agency was super quick to respond. Alvin helps you buy tickets and goes up with us until the Great Wall for us to explain what we could know. When we went down he was waiting for us and helped us with lunch. Alvin really was amazing. He deserves 7 stars in his service. Thank you Alvin for this amazing tour.
Excellent trip to see the Great Wall

Marvin, our driver, was very helpful and ensured we had a great experience at the Great Wall. The Mutianyu section is very steep in some places so I would not recommend it for the elderly or unfit.
