Kevin was on time and picked us up in a nice new van - very comfortable drive. Very safe driver!!!! Kevin dropped us off, got us checked in and got our lift tickets. Wonderful day and wonderful views of the Great Wall. Wonderful experience - highly recommend!!!!! Kevin met us at Subway and took us back to hotel. Thanks Kevin for great experience!!!
Our trip was great! The driver picked us up at the hotel and drove us directly to the wall. This part of the wall is the best, not overly crowded, in fact very few people early in the morning.
Car was on time
Driver had limited English but was friendly and helpful
Mutianyu was beautiful
Every thing went so smoothly, I think we would have enjoyed a little more history, but the experience was phenomenal.
Our driver Kevin was great- on time, safe driving, and helpful with suggestions. Highly recommended for an easy trip to the Great Wall!
I highly recommend this tour to anyone that is not only looking to fulfill what, for most of us in the USA, is a once in a lifetime experience of walking on The Great Wall of China, but also have the fun and excitement of taking a ski lift up and a toboggan ride down. The views from the ski lift and the wall are magnificent! The toboggan ride sooooo fun! The private car with English speaking driver made the day relaxing and stress free. Our driver, Kevin, met us in our hotel lobby at 8:00 a.m. We proceeded to the car. Kevin gave us some history of China as well as hints on maneuvering and shopping during our stay in Beijing. When we got to the wall, he escorted us to the entrance. After we were done on the wall, we met Kevin back at a pre-designated area. On the way back to Beijing, Kevin offered to take us to any other site we may have wanted to see in Beijing. Due to jet lag, we declined. Seeing the Great Wall of China via ski lift and toboggan is the only way to go! Going through Viator who made the visit so easy is, in my opinion, also the only way to go
The driver, Kevin, suggested to leave very early in the morning. He picked me up from the hotel at 6:45, as promised on the phone. We picked up 2 other tourists on the way, but I wasn't bothered by that at all. I had to wake up before 6 a.m., which was a bit difficult, but this turned out to be a great idea, as there were very few people on the wall when we got there. When we left, it started to get crowded, so I really appreciated the fact that I could enjoy it at my own pace without bumping into people all the time. Also, I had the afternoon free afterwards. I would have liked to get some information from him history of the wall/area, interesting facts, but there wasn't much time and I am not sure how he could have done that, if he was focused on driving. I was happy with this tour and I recommend it to everyone, as Kevin delivered what we agreed on and seems like a reliable and helpful guy.

A really worth while tour lots of information provided on the journey to the wall and back. Plenty of time on the wall where we went for a really long walk along the wall. Views were amazing. Good lunch at the end of our walk. A truly great day out.
Great trip, we didn't want to do all day group tour, this trip was well affordable. Driver Bruce got us there nice and early before the national holiday crowds kicked in. Mutianyu has a great stretch of renovated wall - note there is one company that runs an older chairlift up and optional toboggan or chairlift again down the toboggan was great fun and very safe a different company runs a modern cable car.
Kevin was a great guide and very helpful throughout the entire tour. I would highly recommend Viator and Kevin!
