I highly recommend booking this tour if you wish to avoid packed tour buses and a quick travel time. I believe the 8:00am departure is necessary as we got to the wall at around 9:00am thanks to our friendly driver Mark in which you can enjoy the wall without the hustle and bustle.

Great Wall of China is amazing! We booked the private trip with English speaking driver as it was highly recommended.It was a good choice. Our driver Kevin was fantastic.He spoke very good english, he had lots of knowledge which he shared with us about China,the history, people,life in China. Pickup/drop off point from our hotel. Kevin took us to Mutianyu Great Wall, explained what is best to do and we went to discover the amazing Great Wall. Kevin was waiting for us at the entrance. It takes about 2 hours to walk one side of the wall. On the way back ,we asked him to stop somewhere for lunch. Kevin took us to a fantastic restaurant, amazing food,amazing dumplings. I can say that it was the best food we ate in China.
If you book a tour with Kevin,you will definitely have great time.
And the last thing, going there in the morning is great,not busy at all. When we will leaving ,it was getting busier.

Take this Private Mutianyu Great Wall Tour! Kevin was our knowledgeable guide and took care of everything perfectly. He picked us up on time and we drove about 1 hour from central Beijing, arriving early enough to avoid any crowd. This tour is exactly as advertised with no wasted time on shopping or side trips. This is a real travel destination experience and is almost impossible to accurately describe other than to say it is truly one of the wonders of the world. We spent 3 weeks in China on a self planned trip and I highly recommend this tour. Ask for Kevin as your guide and you will have a fantastic adventure. tour date - Nov 21, 2017.

Great experience! Our driver Kevin met us at our hotel right on time and it was a joy to talk to him on the way to the wall. Once there he got our tickets for us and showed us where to meet him when we finished walking around. I would definitely recommend Kevin and this tour to everyone wanting a fun, hassle-free experience to the Great Wall.

Prompt pickup by Oscar who took us around the wall and dropped off at the airport. This is not a guided tour so be prepared to explore on your own. We only spent 2 hrs on the wall but I recommend at least spending 3-4 hrs. Oscar also took us to a great lunch spot which served authentic Beijing cuisine. Overall a great experience and whilst slightly pricey would still highly recommend it.

Kevin was great, picked us up on time and dropped us off where we wanted - the olympic park! Told us some history around beijing and the wall and let us relax on the way to the wall as we were both quite jet lagged still. A very independent tour which is what we wanted, Kevin helped us get our tickets and showed us to the cable cars and let us have several hours to do as we wished. Kevin recommended somewhere for us to eat which was very good, tasty and cheap! Dropped us back promptly and with suggestions of other things to do on our stay in Beijing! Superb.

To anyone who wants to take a tour of the Great Wall, BOOK THIS TOUR! Kevin was an amazing driver for my girlfriend and I and we are not regretting signing up with him one bit. Kevin met us in our hotel on time and walked us to his van. He spoke English and was very informative about the surrounding areas in Beijing on the way to the Great Wall. When we got there, he asked us if we wanted to take the cable ride or walk to the top, and he also asked how we wanted to get back from the Wall which the options are Chair life, the slide or walking. We opted to take the Cable ride to the top and also opted to take the chair lift down from the wall.He personally paid for these and got us our tickets, which we paid him back later. He then led us to the entrance and let us have our alone time for 3 hours. He waited on us the whole time and met us by the Subway restaurant when we were done, he asked us if we were hungry and wanted to grab a bite to eat before we left which we did, and then he took us back to our hotel. The drive from our hotel to the Great Wall was approx. 1 1/2 hours each way and we're talking about Beijing traffic folks. This traffic is CRAZY! Kevin held his composure the whole drive which I commend him on. Also at the end of the tour Kevin gave us a parting gift from his company which we are using as gifts for our families. Overall I have no complaints with this tour, it was A-1, Kevin was awesome, the drive was awesome with a clean vehicle. To sum it up once again... BOOK THIS TOUR!

If you want to walk on The Great Wall of China,You need to take this trip. My wife and I went to China with a travel group of 12 people,we were the only ones to sign up with Viator,we were also the only ones to actually walk on the Great Wall. There are 1100 to Fourteen hundred step up to the Great Wall,and maybe harder to walk down. Take the lift up and ride the toboggan sled down,it's a lot easier.
