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.
best day in beijing! thank you! perfect, prompt, kind, knowledgeable. we had the best day ever on the great wall. thank you so much!!
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.
Kevin showed our family a great day around the Great Wall. He spoke great English and gave us some insight into the culture. He really customized our tour, which was necessary given our young children who had limited patience for an only-hiking day. In the end, we went to a Jade gallery to see some amazing Jade and embroidery artwork, went to see the amazing sights at Mutianyu portion of the Great Wall, and then had a great time with the toboggan ride after the cable car ride up then Kevin took us to the Chaoyang Theater for an amazing acrobat show just as memorable as the Great Wall!. After that, he dropped us off to an amazing restaurant for some of the best Peking Duck in the city. We would definitely enlist his services in a future trip! What a full and memorable day!
My wife and I were extremely pleased with our experience. Kevin was our driver / guide.
Unfortunately, due to heavy rains, the Mutianyu section of the wall was closed. Kevin had a GREAT back-up plan and took us to a different section of the wall. There were barely any tourists at this section of the wall and it felt like our own private tour of the Great Wall! It was incredible. Kevin also gave us a great recommendation for Peking Duck in Beijing and dropped us off at a restaurant of our choosing after we visited the Great Wall. He was very helpful and flexible!
The fact that Kevin had a Plan B in case of bad weather and that the plan was incredible makes the money we spent on this tour completely worth it. He also speaks great english, which was a huge plus for us! I highly recommend this trip, especially if you want the peace of mind that you will be able to see the Great Wall come rain or shine!
Our driver Kevin was professional, helpful and informative. The Great Wall experience was very memorable, due to having plenty of time to walk both the well trodden path and more remote parts of the wall. Having Kevin there to transport us in comfort, answering any questions we had and assist us made it an amazing experience.
Our driver Kevin was very prompt, punctual, fluent in English and friendly. He showed up on time at our hotel and the car was clean and good too. We then drove to the great wall and Kevin explained how to get in, the hike and the different routes. We hiked for about 2 hours and met with Kevin outside the wall post our hike. He then drove us back to the city and on our request took us to an amazing schezuan lunch place which we loved very much. Highly recommended!
Brilliant trip. Really easy to arrange and everything went smoothly. Our English speaking driver was a guy called Kevin. I couldn't recommend him more. Polite, friendly, informative and brilliant English. It was the trip of a lifetime.
our guide picked us up from our hotel in Beijing, our tour guide was Jenny and she was awesome.
very friendly and helpful got us to the great wall and helped us stop and look for a couple of items on our way back to the airport.
booked last minute by phone the evening before our tour and the representative on the phone found a tour that accommodated our schedule.
would recommend using this tour company to anyone.
Had a great time with Jenny, our driver who navigated the streets of Beijing like a pro and got us to the Great Wall quickly. She also got us our tickets, waited for us at the bottom, and even helped us order lunch afterwards. She was really wonderful and I would highly recommend booking!
This was an excellent tour all round - I have been to the Great Wall on two other occasions previously, but this was by far the best tour service that I received and at a great price too. I really could not have asked for anything else from this tour - thanks, Kevin!
While this isn and #39;t a true and #34;tour with guide and #34;, it was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted to explore the Mutianyu section of the wall at our own pace. Kevin spoke good English and was flexible with the amount of time we spent on the wall. It was my favorite day in China!
This was a great trip and a great value. The highlight of our trip to Beijing! Our driver Kevin was awesome! He spoke wonderful English, he was on time, answered my questions, and fun to be around. After the tour of the Great Wall he took us to a great restaurant and then to the Pearl Market. I invited he and his family to visit us if they ever make it our way. A! You will not be disappointed.
Absolutely THE BEST experience ever. Our driver (Kevin) called us the night before to confirm the trip, give us a time for pick up, and confirm our hotel location. This was very comforting. He was on time to pick us up with a spotless van and spoke perfect English. Very informative and friendly. A++
Kevin was very friendly. He was also on time in the morning and in the afternoon. He told us about the best parts of the wall. Thanks for the great service!
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.
