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.

A must do tour while in Beijing!! Michael our guide was so nice and provided us with some great side activities plus the Great Wall. That feeling you get to be in one of the wonders of the world is unique. Loved the Great Wall!!
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 was the experience of a lifetime. Our guide was most informative and entertaining and everything went according to schedule. We were picked up and delivered to our hotel as per advertised. The tour was GREAT.
The tour was great despite traffic to and from Mutianyu. But even better was the tour guide. Very flexible. Very funny. Very knowledgeable. And kept up with us the whole way we opted to walk up to the Wall rather than take the cable car. His name was Gau sp? although pronounced in American English as Goo and he really made the trip.
