A great way to see an amazing section of the Great Wall with a small group of 10 people from around the world. Our guide and driver were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and their advice to take the cable car up to Tower 14 and then walk the wall for an hour mostly downhill to Tower 6 and take the toboggan slide down was excellent. Saw some amazing views and had a lot of fun doing it. Lunch at the local restaurant was delicious and huge with around a dozen different dishes for all to try. We were all stuffed and had great time.

William was our tour guide. Met us at our hotel. 1 1/2 hour bus ride to the wall. William started with an introduction to the wall history and the formation. Lots of options when we arrived walk/cable car/toboggan. Excellent experience. Stopped for a great lunch on the way back. Definite recommend.

Great tour. Friendly tour guide who took lots of photos. Arrived early and so avoided most of the crowds and had a few hours to walk the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. The wall itself is amazing with great views. Stopped on the way back to Beijing for some lovely Chinese food. Definitely recommend this tour

This is a MUST SEE landmark and I saw it with the marvelous tour guide, Viv, who made it even better! Plus, although my mobility is somewhat limited and I was warned by colleagues not to go on the tour due to the climbing, I was delighted to find a ski lift to take me up to the Wall as well as being able to ride a toboggan down again so fun!. I only had issues walking from the parking lot, but once I made it to the lift it was easy. Granted, I didn't walk that far when I got on the Wall, as there are stairs everywhere, but I had enough time to go slowly and was able to visit a few of the watch towers.

After, we went to a village for lunch, instead of being herded like cattle into the 'tourist' spots, and had a great meal, before riding back through the countryside to Beijing.

Thanks to Viv for a fabulous day.

AMAZING tour. Highlight of my Beijing experience by far. I was a solo female traveler and worried about finding a safe way to get to the Great Wall -- Urban Adventures is by far the way to go. You are paired with a small group of other travelers, and feel at ease right from the start. Our local guide, Dennis, was knowledgeable, personable, witty and kind. He made every effort to give us the experience we were looking for -- presenting interesting facts about the wall, taking note of the kinds of foods we mentioned liking to order them during the Chinese lunch, and giving us bartering tips and patiently encouraging us to shop as long as we wanted at the bottom of the wall. He even went above and beyond to walk me back to the part of town I was staying in when taxis weren't readily available during rush hour at the end of the tour. If you have any doubts about traveling solo, do this tour!

Fantastic trip. I was lucky enough to be the only one on the tour so it was great value for money. Vivian was a fantastic guide. One thing to note is the meet up point is the Sunworld Hotel, not the Sunworld Dynasty hotel which is 3 doors down the road and bigger.

This was the highlight of our trip to Beijing. We were fortunate enough to have great weather for our trip to the Great Wall, but our tour guide Vivian was simply AWESOME !!! The information she provided was superb, and she was just a joy to be around. Always making the whole group laugh and taking photos of us all. She knew all the best places to get that perfect shot, and we arrived earlier than most people, so it looks as though you have the entire wall to yourselves in the photos....The toboggan ride down was so much fun, and just makes you feel like a big kid....
Vivian also took us to a fantastic local restaurant which was the best lunch we had in Beijing. Its hard to pick at favourite thing about this tour as it was all spectacular - Highly recommended, and if you are lucky enough to have Viv as your guide, you will have the best day out in Beijing.... Thanks Viv x

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. The tour starts early at the pickup point, where we took a minibus to the great wall. During the journey to the wall Vivian our tour guide was sharing stories/information about the history of the wall, Beijing etc which was interesting and certainly helped to pass the time. We arrived at the wall pretty early, before many crowds had arrived. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it the weather was relatively poor rain/fog . However this didn't ruin the experience the fog made for some interesting photos and did clear up nicely , but on the plus side it probably did help keep large crowds away so the wall was relatively empty. Vivian walked with us to the wall and helped take pictures of members of the group and show us her favourite view points.

After the wall itself, we were taken to a restaurant away from the main tourist area. Vivian ordered us some Chinese dishes and made sure we had plenty of food to feed everyone and I think the group left very full. After that we were returned to the pickup point, Vivian also offered advice on others places in Beijing to visit.

Vivian was fantastic! She really made our group of 8 have a great, authentic Great Wall trip and lunch was at a local restaurant off the beaten path. We were treated like royalty, with local beer and shots of rice wine! We all shared plates after an early and exhausting day on the Wall. GREAT MEMORIES!!! Highly recommend this tour.

Highly recommend this tour and the passionate tour guide Vivian. Our tour was on Sunday. They picked us up at 7:00am from hotel lobby and we arrived Great Wall before 9:00am. The 1.5 hour road time was quite enjoyable. The city in the early Sunday morning was tranquil. Vivian gave us a casual talk about Great Wall, Beijing the people and the city etc. By arriving early to a less crowded Great Wall section MUTIANYU, we could avoid the crowd and enjoy the fantasitc view without hassle. The time we spent at Great Wall was about 3.5 hours. We had family style lunch in a villiage and then headed back to Hotel. No time was wasted. Well worth the money!

Vivian, the guide was very nice. She speak very good English. She explained us all kind of trips and tricks and she even made pictures for us. Arriving one hour before the other tours was very helpful. In some parts we were the only ones on the wall. This trip has NO shopping stops, which is very good. Highly reccomended, even if is a little bit more expensive than other tours. Well worth the money.

This was a fantastic tour and highly recommend. Leaving early, we bypassed the Tombs which other tours take you to first, on the way to the wall and headed straight for a less busy part of the wall, It meant that for approximately 15 - 30 minutes, we had the wall virtually to ourselves. It was a surreal experience looking out across the mountains, visiting different sections and taking it all in. Our guide was fantastic! She arranged for our lunch to be outside of the tourist area, to a restaurant in a village. The food was the best I'd had and had the opportunity to get to know some of the school children as the school was next door. It was an amazing day, I could not have asked for better.

Excellent day trip to the Great Wall of China. We were lucky to have a wonderful guide for the two of us and travelled by private car to this wonder of the world. We arrived before the tourist crowds which gave us the opportunity to take many photo's and walk many of the various stages of the wall unimpeded. We experienced the varied steps as part of the cobbled walkway, magnificent views and enjoyed an informative commentary and great interaction all day from our guide. Lunch was delicious in a small town- a perfect finish!

The early start was hard...however SO Worth it! A 2 hour bus ride, we got to The Great Wall before all the crowds and the heat kicked in. We definately had enough time to see everything.Sofia our guide was great! She also helped with advise on other sights to visit. Wear comfy shoes and sunscreen!

It was great fun, great execise and amazing local food. Even if you only have one day in Beijing, rather skip other things than seeing this monument, man-made and with a long history.
Thank you to guide Vivienne, she did her best, shot fotos of all groupmembers and provided us with a lot of information.
