It was great to have the driver waiting for us when we arrived. We took longer than expected at the 24hr visa line, but the driver was waiting with a sign as soon as we got out. You don't have to worry about anything since the driver is so experienced. He'll get parking, your tickets, explain how to get up/down from the attractions. I would reccomend to anyone who wants to be sure that they are able to see the wall on their own schedule.
Overall the service was good and on time. But the driver knew very very very English. We went in mid December and it was good that they provided coats, you'll need them! Our pickup from the airport was at 7am and returned back to the airport at 2pm. However, we could have ended earlier or stayed later if we wanted to. Had a great time and would use the service again in the future!
Can't fault this personal tour...had a long layover time at the airport so i thought i would fit this in...met downstairs on arrival by my tour guide and we went off to the car with a driver waiting..on the way to the wall she kept me informed on how China has evolved and information on the part of the wall we were going to visit..journey to the wall felt like no time at all and soon we were up on the cable car to the top...she was a very good tour guide answering all my questions in very good English and on the way back back to the airport even offered a short stop at a Tea Shop..however i declined as time was catching me up for my departure and you never know how busy Beijing air might be..Over all i would recommend this tour if you have the time..
A hassle free way to see the Great Wall. company were amazing to deal with, we got stuck in the free visa line and were half an hour late for pick up. The drive to the wall was smooth and the car was very comfortable. Our Driver bruce guided us all the way up to the wall which made it hassle free. Would recommend this to anyone with a stopover wanting to see the Great Wall, a smooth and stressless experience.
Arriving at 5am I had a 10 hour layover in Beijing PEK and hoped I could get to the Great Wall. The hardest part was getting the FREE 24-72 hour visa to get out of the airport. The line was HUGE with 2 people processing. My advice is to get into that line as quickly as possible as it took almost 90 minutes to get my visa. The line is not in an obvious place so be sure to ask for directions so you're not in the wrong line. This company gave me very explicit instructions that helped the process and answered the phone when I was delayed. I finally got through immigration and out of the airport by 8am. My guide, Robert, waited an hour for me and provided a wonderful experience at the Wall. Because it was cold, he had extra jackets and gloves. We arrived at the Wall about 9:30am. Very few people were there at that time and I'm SO glad I was able to do this. TIP: I had a BLAST taking the toboggan down from the Wall! Robert got me back to the airport by 12:30 with plenty of time for my 3pm flight.
Avevamo uno scalo di 15 ore e oltre ad aver visitato la muraglia siamo stati anche a pechino città!
il nostro driver era un ragazzo davvero gentile, cordiale e simpatico oltre che molto alla mano!
ci ha spiegato molte cose sulla cultura cinese ed è stato super disponibile!
ci ha anche portato a pranzo in un posto tipico davvero buono! :) 5 stelle!
