private trip (for 4) to Datong in the province of Shanxi, China

The trip to Datong from Beijing was over 5 hours one way to see the hanging temple and Yungang Grottoes due to some traffic but Mr. Ma had made trip more pleasant and enjoyable during the long drive with bananas, tangerines (didn't expected). Mr. Ma did help us to find out if you are over 60 years of age, the entrance fee is free to both places. We really recommend this tour since the hanging temple is an amazing place to visit. Thank you so much Mr. Ma! We really recommend this tour

Excellent day trip to the Hanging Monastery and Yungang Grottoes

We had only one spare day in Beijing and want to visit Datong. Everyone told us it is too far to visit Datong in one day, but we found this trip in Viator. Kevin is an excellent driver, he picked-up us at the hotel at 6:00 am in the morning and we were back around 10:00 pm, a trip of 16 hours. The trip to/from Datong took around 5 hours one way. We had ample time to visit the Monastery and the Grottoes and had a local noodle meal. Though it was a long day, we had very relax day, manly because Kevin is a safe driver and he also took the time to help us purchasing the tickets, ordering our meals and answering our questions along the way. So, it is very doable to visit the Hanging Monastery and Yungang Grottoes in one day from Beijing, even at our age around 70.

Kevin was a great driver. He helped us even more than required. We asked if he knew a good local place to eat in Datong. He took us to a fantastic noodle shop. The food was great and very inexpensive.
