Awesome Tour!! We had a really nice and informative tour Guide, William! He called us at our hotel to confirm our pick-up time to start the day! Making our way towards The Great Wall he shared information, history and hot spots! We had our first stop over at the Jade Factory which was pretty awesome to see how they carved and made jade pieces! We had our Lunch at a nice restaurant before making our trek to the wall! We chose to go up by chairlift and then toboggan ride down great fun! There are a lot of steps from small to big to steep etc. so be prepared! we were given a good 2.5 hours on the wall and found it was plenty of time, walking the wall, resting, getting our breaths back, taking lots of selfies and then lining up at the end for the toboggan ride down! The tour ended with a tea ceremony and hotel drop off ! Overall it was a great tour, great tour guide and beautiful views!
This was a fabulous experience. Maria our tour guide was wonderful, informative and really took good care of us. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Great way to see the Great Wall of China.
The best tour I have been on! Jackie our tour guide was amazing, so engaging. The Wall was obviously the best thing on our trip. Could have used some more time on the Wall itself and we were picked up a little too early to pick up other people from hotels. Could have multiple pick up points.
Overall absolutely fantastic! This one was a highlight on our trip.
A great day on this tour. Our guide William was fantastic, we learnt so much from him. There were only 6 on our tour, we went up by chairlift and then opted for the toboggan ride down, before enjoying a lovely lunch. Be prepared for a lot of steps varying in height, I personally found it quite difficult but glad I persevered. Our guide was considerate in the fact when he saw one of us struggling he'd suggest this was a great place for a photo opportunity. Well worth it.
This is a must-see for anyone traveling near Beijing. And, this is a far better place to see the wall from, as opposed to the closer in and very crowded option. Be prepared for the hike up- this is NOT for anyone who is unable to endure a vigorous climb. The steps are challenging in height at many points, but you can always stop to rest and continue on at your own pace. The views are spectacular.
Everything was great except the lunch. The food was like something you could get at a mediocre Chinese restaurant in the US.
Great tour and plenty of time to walk on the wall. Mutianyu is a great section of the wall to go to as it is not crowded. Lunch was great and also enjoyed the tea ceremony.
Gail was an amazing guide, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and a budding photographer it seems! The tour itself was super fun, and exploring the wall while learning of its history made it more interesting. Tobogganing down from the top of the wall was a great way to cap off the experience.
Excellent day! Jackie Li was very informative and has a great sense of humour. I recommend him to would-be travellers.
This tour was amazing!
