This was a great tour and our tour guide, William, was excellent. William was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The local Chinese lunch was very good. Taking the toboggan down was really fun!
This was a truly amazing day. on time pick up, knowledgeable and pleasant guide and the Great Wall was everything you might imagine it would be and more. A little bit too heavy on the factory shops and outlets x3 but other than that absolutely no complaints. Highly recommended.

This was a great tour and I would highly recommend to others. We were picked up on time from our hotel and we visited a number of places of interest that day. We started with a Jade factory visit, which was interesting to understand the carving and different types of jade available. The next part of the tour was the Great Wall and this was such an enjoyable experience. To start with, you need to take a chair lift to get to the top of the Wall, which was fun, and yes it was a chair lift. Then when you are at the top you can choose which direction on the Wall you would like to walk. This section of the Great Wall is manageable for any level of fitness, as the Wall runs along the top of Mountains and the views are spectacular... absolutely amazing. To go back down the hill from the Wall you could choose the option of the chair lift again, but we decided to do the exhilarating toboggan run all the way from the top of the Wall to the bottom of the mountain where the chair lift started from. So much fun and laughs to be had on that ride! After our time on the Wall we had an enjoyable local lunch at the nearby café with local produce, tasted amazing. In the afternoon, we were taken to a formal tea ceremony, which was well presented. We were provided with the history of Chinese Tea and learnt about the different flavours and health benefits to Chinese Tea which was all very interesting. This tour provided us with a great experience and we continue to talk about it with friends back home, as it was just something to remember!
Great day at the great wall. The guide was very helpful. Lunch was amazing.
Turned out that I was the only one that signed up for this tour that day, so I got a private tour! My guide was Gale, and was the nicest person! She walked along with me, telling me stories about Chinese history, myths and culture. The food at lunch was good, and although Gale told me a drink of my choice the first one was included, the waitress charged me for it and I asked for water!. But that's on the waitress trying to make a little side money, not Gale, who had already gone out. On the way there we stopped at a jade factory, and at a tea house on the way back. I did not feel any pressure to buy in either place.
Great tour. Gets you to the wall early in the morning when no one is there. We were the only people on the wall when we arrived. Our tour guide was very friendly, nice and his English was good. There was also a tea demonstration as part of the tour which I would highly recommend. This is a great tour if you only have a short time in Bejing and you want to see the Great Wall when there are few tourists. it was January, so it wasn't exactly peak tourist season. The driver also dropped me off at the Olympic Park which was also very kind of them.
This group tour was on a medium sized bus. Going to the Great Wall is an absolute mist do. It was worth the ride over and back. We stopped at a jade place as well. Wonderful experience. The included lunch was very good. The 65 per person cost was a very good value for sure.
Our tour guide was awesome! She knew a lot about the history of Beijing as well as the Great Wall itself. She even went out of her way to take us to an authentic tea house after the tour was over. I highly recommend this trip to anyone.
The guide William was great took pictures for us as we walked!
Everything was awesome including lunch...
Just an FYI for Viator in description put additional costs for team or ski car which are options when get to wall
It was very nice that the tour picked me up from my hotel even though it was located just outside the 4th ring next to Peking University. Pickup time was 6:30-7:30 am. Our small tour group 5 people arrived at the Wall by 9 am, which gave us 2.5 hours to explore. It was very nice having so much time to walk around, and the toboggan ride is highly recommended! I thought lunch was fine nice to have the price included, and as a bonus we got to see a tea ceremony at Dr. Tea once we returned to the city. Final drop off time was 3 pm. I thought Maria was very kind and informative. She even gave us travel tips for Beijing outside of the tour and was full of knowledge.
