My tour guide Sophia was wonderful, her knowledge of everything was exceptional and genuinely made me feel very at home in Beijing.

The wall was surreal and so picturesque, I would definitely recommend this part of the wall. The ski lift up and toboggan down is the perfect choice.

I had a great experience and based on what other people say about similar tours, everything is about expectations. We were taken to two sales pitches jade factory and tea house, but that is completely understandable as the tour price is so cheap that they have to bring people to this places. No push to buy anything even when I did and the experience was great. Paul our tour guy was super friendly and knew all the facts. We spend almost two hours at the wall and it was more than enough. If you feel like walking the wall from one end to the other, then certainly you need a different tour. The five of us in this tour had more than enough time so everybody was happy.

Great tour! Got to also see a jade factory more like a showroom, and have a tea ceremony. We only had an hour on the wall, allowing 30 minutes to get to the top and 30 to come down, but that was enough because it was so hot. The tour guide was great too, very knowledgeable and funny. I recommend it!

Pricipally the tour was OK. As expected, there are several stops, where someone, who wants to see the main things great wall, thombs, ... of the tour, looses time. This includes Jade carving factory, tea ceremony and similar things. The lunch was surprisingly good and the tour guide as well as the driver really fine. Finally the sky cleared completely up haveing the great wall with deep blue sky ... so, the tour is recommended anyway.

Great tour! Well organized and managed. Save driver (not necessarily usual in China...) and knowledgeable and nice tour guide. Yes, we had two shopping stops, but they were actually quite interesting and I felt no pressure to spend money. This tour is worth the money.

Liked the tour. Guide was not as personable and English was not great. Also, drop the stops at the jade factory at the end of the day. People were tired and wanted to get back to hotel. Understand this is a business arrangement, but needs to be dropped from the itinerary.

Great tour. Beware there is a forced shopping stop at a tea shop. The tasting is interesting, but the teas are overpriced.

This was a great way to see the wall and I highly recommend taking the ski lift up and the toboggan down - this was the highlight of our trip to China and I don't feel this was recommended enough by our tour guide. Most people took the cable car up and down, and were all very jealous when we told them about the toboggan! It's worth mentioning the long drive to this part of the wall from the centre of China, but it was definitely worth it as this part was less crowded.

I really enjoyed the Great Wall and Ming Tombs but we seemed to spend almost as much time at the forced sales stops. Our first stop was to a jade showroom which was for 90 minutes! Several of us were just sat around having a drink. At the end of the day when everyone was tired after the Great Wall and just wanted to get back, we stopped at a tea shop and there was a tea ceremony which lasted about half an hour. Several of us don't drink tea and the tour guide told us we still had to go in! They locked the bus so we couldn't stay on it. When we came out the tea room, the job had so many assistants that they followed us around one by one and it was so hard to escape!
