Breakfast was great and Kevin, our driver, was very helpful. The Wall was amazing--this is a great part of the wall to visit. Going early in the morning, in October, and this part of the Wall meant it was not too crowded and we could really enjoy the experience. After discussion with our driver we learned that Forbidden City was closed the next day (Mondays) so he dropped us off there on our way home, helped us avoid the crowds there, and gave us directions to get home from there.
