I received a call from Jacky the night before to confirm pick up time, was requested to take a taxi to another hotel I used English app Didi Chuxing, Jacky reimbursed me later which I gladly obliged because the area I stayed is notorious for traffic jams. Jacky was my guide, in a small bus group of 10. Started with jade factory tour, then the Mutianyu Great Wall, and lastly tea house. Jacky was not pushy at the sales gallery. Jacky got the tickets for us at Mutianyu office, getting up by steps is too strenuous to reach the tower of Great Wall. Everyone heed Jackys advice, cable car up and down by the toboggan cant recall 120 or 140 yuan extra. Queued 15 mins each for cable car and toboggan. Time at the Wall approx 1 hr, which suffice given the heat/sun and steps. Our guide Jacky did not follow, but that was fine we roamed on our own.
- Turn right, trail leads up the higher hill and more picturesque, extremely steep steps but has hand rail, moderate fitness needed, to and fro approx 30mins.
- Turn left, easy and flat trail, this is a long trail but you can turn back any time
Jacky is fun, professional and courteous, his English is good by Chinese standard...he worked hard, and he deserved tips for the work well done.
Driver was fine in the morning but moody at the evening due to bad traffic jam.

The tour included a trip to the jade museum and Chinese tea factory. The hike itself wasn’t straneuous, walk at your own pace. Alice our tour guide provided a lot of useful information about the wall and other notable historical sites. Enjoyed the tour.

Jackie was such a great tour guide. We learned so much from the just the van ride over to the great wall. The Jade factory is very nice and we were able to pick up some very cool souvenirs for our family members back home. The tea ceremony was also a very unique and good experience.

I really had fun on this tour! Stunning view with a very supportive guide Kathy, who took all of my photos. She well explained the history of the wall and assisted me as i traveled in solo.

Mutianyu tour is better she said as its not that crowded unlike on the other route and best time to come are after holidays for you not to catch many people and enjoy the view on your own.

Amazing visit to Mutianyu in Dec. Would recommend visiting at this time because it is the non-peak season. Guide was very caring and kept ensuring that we were dressed warmly enough for the climb up the Great Wall. The visit included a tea-appreciation session.

We had a really wonderful guide in Cynthia who provided a lot of detailed information regarding history and culture. I had a great day at wall where we got to spend a lot of time at the wall itself. We had an excellent lunch in a restaurant at base. This day was rounded outwith a visit to a Tea house where we had opportunity to sample various types of tea.
Would definitely recommend this tour
