Amazing tour! The private car was comfortable and pick-up dropp-of were smooth. Mutianyu was not crowded and the ski-lift to climb up and the sliding carts to go down were a lot of fun! Our guide was knowledgeable and a very sweet person! The lunch was at a local little restaurant and it was pretty good. She took us through the crowds of the Summer Palace and was patient with our desire to climb every possible tower to take photos! She took many photos for us as well. This was a wonderful decision and a wonderful tour!

This is a fantastic day! Our tour guide Alice and the Private Driver were lovely. Alice was very informative and we could see she genuinely cared to make our day perfect. The Mutianyu part of the Great Wall is well worth the drive - less crowded. Extremely satisfied with the day!

Great tour- good value for the money. Clean car, professional service. Our guide Roy was incredible. So knowledgeable! The history lesson alone in the first 30 minute son the car ride was terrific. Highly recommend you request Roy as possible, and Mr. Sun our driver, was so kind and helpful, too. Hopefully you do this trip when the tobagen ride is open at the Great Wall - looks like so much fun. Unfortunately, we went during winter so it was closed. But I can't say enough positive accolades about the tour.

What do you say about this tour.... Awesome!!!! Our tour guide Bella and our driver were awesome... Proud of their country and the history of the Chinese people. The wall was incredible and the toboggan ride down was a blast. The history behind the wall and then lunch at a local restaurant was excellent the food was locally grown and you could taste the freshness. The Summer Palace was amazing and we ended at a Tea House for a tea ceremony. Truthfully, our daughter wanted to go more than us but it was great and a lot of fun.... Great people, great time and 5 stars!!!!

We could not have been luckier to have such a great, unique, private tour to The Great Wall and Summer Palace. Evelyn our tour guide and driver was amazing! They made the trip-sweet, full of information and hospitable. We would definitely choose Viator tours for our next trips. Thank you so much for a wonderful crew!!

Very happy with this tour.

Bella our tour guide was available the night before to confirm our booking, arrived slightly before time to collect us at the hotel, and made sure everything ran as clockwork. I'd happily book another tour. A very very good experience.

Our family of 5 took this tour in late June and got a great guide, Bella! She was friendly and informative - she paced the tour, coordinated well with driver for pickup and drop off, communicated well and took us to a great lunch place. Bella was awesome and we had a good time. Thanks Bella!!!

Eva was great!! Very friendly, knowledgeable and organised. If I was recommending this to anyone I would suggest maybe just doing the Great Wall alone in a day. It's a pretty big day especially if you're not fit. Not impossible by any means, but after the Wall we were all exhausted and requested the short version of the Summer Palace, which is obviously not ideal. Overall all a BRILLIANT day and highly recommend this tour AND Eva!!
