If you’re looking to see The Great Wall on your layover, I can’t imagine a better way to do it. The driver met me at the airport with my name on a sign. He was extremely nice and helpful throughout the entire journey. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I’m so glad I booked this tour.
Our driver, David Lee, was very punctual, we left at 6:30AM on a pleasant drive till Mutianyu and got there before 8AM. He helped us buy our tickets and we toke as much time as we needed to walk around the Great Wall, after that he was waiting for us at the same spot that he parked. David was really nice, the things that he didn't know how to say he used the translator, so we had no problem what so ever with communication.
I recommend this tour since it is private and money worth it. They also offer water, bananas, wi-fi and we got a little panda at the end.
PS: get there early and you will have the Wall only to yourself.
David picked us up promptly and was a very good driver. He had water and snacks for us enroute. He pointed out sites along the way and even gave us some video information about The Great Wall prior to our arrival.
Once we arrived, he escorted us to the ticket counter and purchased all the necessary tickets on our behalf. He made sure that we knew where to go thereafter.
He was waiting for us upon our return and even had a nice birthday gift for me since we were there for my 50th birthday. He also made a couple of stops for us on the way back to our apartment.
We would definitely recommend this option for an easy way to get to the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu and explore the wall on your own. We left Beijing at 7 a.m. and arrived before the crowds.
Tony picked us up right on time at our hotel & provided EXCELLENT service! He showed us exactly where to go and was friendly & helpful & his English was very good! The car was brand new and very comfortable. I would DEFINITELY recommend their services in Beijing & the Great Wall excursion without hesitation.
Visiting the Great Wall of China was an amazing experience!I have nothing but good things to say! If you're a solo traveller and want to experience the Great Wall of China at your own pace then this tour is a good choice. My driver was Xing, he is very kind and friendly. He picked me up at my hotel lobby on time with a sign holding my name. During the drive he offered bottled water and a battery pack to charge my phone, as we arrived he also helped me purchase tickets.
As you are experiencing the Great Wall of China, your driver waits at the bottom for you. Xing was very patient and told me to take my time and that when I was on my back in the shuttle to give him a call so he could turn on the airconditioning in the car early as it was very hot day!
On the car ride back, Xing offered more water, two bananas for me to snack on and also gifted me a Panda plush toy as a gift!
As a solo female traveller who took this tour I really recommend this to everyone!!!
My family joined the Mutianyu great wall tour on 22 May and the driver who took care of us during this trip was Hank Li. He came 30mins before the pick up time and prepared banana and water for us. Along the way, he explained to us some sights and gave us some recommendations as well. Also, he was very patient as he waited 30minutes for us to have our lunch after the agreed pick up time from Great Wall. All in all, the tour was great and most importantly, comfortable.
I was flying back to the states and had a 10-hour layour in Beijing. I booked this trip on a 1-day notice.
I arrived in the airport and breezed through customs faster than expected. I had almost 2-hours to wait till my scheduled apt and I sat in Starbucks. Surprisingly, Jack approached me after 45 minutes and was early. That just made everything easy and more enjoyable. Jack quickly took my carry-on luggage and we were off.
Jack is an independent operator. Where other bookings might be through an agency, you get an operator here that is making his living through the use of these and other listings. His price is lower than others, but Jack stays at the bottom while you do your thing at the top of the Wall. So people expecting a full-service tour need to look elsewhere. If you want to be guided to the wall and assisted in all aspects of ticketing and questions, then there is Jack. Jack plays videos in his car while driving to the Wall. He is very prepared and professional for the service he offers. I also noticed he is very accommodating and relaxed. I just had 6 hours to kill and Jack was willing to drive me anywhere. We didn't have enough time after the Wall, but Jack was open to driving me through Beijing, etc on my way back to airport. Jack's english is enough. It's not the best, but his attitude makes up for any lack of communication.
I expect to return to Beijing in the future and I will use Jack again wherever I decide to visit.
Also, I really enjoyed the Wall. I was flat out tired from walking that dam thing after 3 hours. Carefully read about the Wall before going....it can be dangerous and the steps are amazingly steep in areas. But wow..... Also, go early if possible....as when I was leaving the amount of people was 3-4x more. Also, that 1950s style ski-lift thing scared the poop out of me. I kept thinking this is China. Also, make sure you get your official certificate that says you climbed the Wall. It is across from the ticketing room. It's free but they try and sell a photo inside the cert. I just had my ticket laminated for 1.
But back to Jack....book him now before someone else grabs the date!
Amazing tour! We went October 2017 - Jack the tour guide picked us up from our hotel and provided some snacks and a drink. Took us up to the Great Wall and helped us get tickets and gave us some tips etc. There was lots of traffic there and back but Jack did everything he could to make sure we could have the full day at the wall. I would highly recommend this to anyone and I would like to thank Jack for giving us such an amazing day!
This tour was great! Our driver was so nice and picked us up early enough to get us to the wall when almost no one was there which was great for photos. He had snacks and water available and helped us out purchasing tickets and letting us know which ones where which! He then tooks us to the airport.
