It wasn't necessarily just the sites we visited that made this as enjoyable... it was our tour guide, Nikki! We can't say enough positive things about her. She was SUPER informative and very educated on the history of the Ming Tombs and Juyongguan segment of the Great Wall. She definitely made this tour exceed all of our expectations. This is a must do .... and ask for Nikki! Oh, and the sites themselves? Definitely worth it! Check out the photos and see for yourself.

Both Sarah, the tour guide, and the driver spoke English, they were very organized, and always on time. Sarah was very friendly. She taught me a lot about the significance of the Juyongguan section of the wall and about the history and culture of Beijing. She seemed to know a lot about many different subjects. I have visited Mutianyu and, personally, I found Juyongguan to be more beautiful. The visit to the jade factory was a wonderful surprise. I did not know about it and would have never known to schedule a visit if it had not been added to this tour. I hope to go back, you need to spend more time there to really appreciate everything that they have. Take your credit card! The meal provided at the jade factory was delicious and the restaurant itself was photo worthy. The service throughout the jade factory was impeccable. The Ming Tombs is huge. I loved the museum. It was wonderful to see such extravagance and to listen to Sarah explain the history behind it all.

Private tour is exactly what this is. We were contacted the night before by our guide, Leo, who made arrangements to meet us at our hotel. He was waiting for my wife, son and myself in the lobby the next morning. He lead us to our van, which we had to ourselves the entire day. We left at 9 am and got to The Wall at Juyongguan at 1030 am. The guide bought tickets and lead us to the starting point. We had two hours to explore. The weather was excellent and we hiked to the top and then back down. Had plenty of time to enjoy ourselves. The guide met us at a prearranged spot and we went to lunch at a Jade Factory. Lunch was outstanding and consisted of Kung Pao Chicken, Peppered Beef, a Pork dish, sweet peas, soup and rice. We bought some jade items, this was a no pressure place and a nice atmosphere. We then spent the afternoon at the Ming Tombs. Our guide explained to us the history behind the Ming Dynasty and was very knowledgeable on the subject. We stopped by a Silk Factory, there was a little more pressure there, but it was still a comfortable shopping experience. My wife bought a nice jacket for roughly $88. The guide then took us back to our hotel, ending a very pleasant tour experience. If you book this tour, you won't be disappointed.

The tour guide Erica was great and very knowledgable.
The driver was a bit rough on the roads.
The Wall was stunning - have to be fit to do this climbing tour. Had my Fitbit on and we did equivalent of 77 floors !
Ming tombs were incredible.l Go on a Monday when there are few tourists.

The Jugongguan was well worth a visit - the climb was extremely steep in places and the higher you climbed, the volume of people was also reduced, albeit we saw very few tourists climb to the same level as us. Since it was on one of the National Chinese Holidays, all the locals had gathered to climb the wall so it was very crowded, so hanging on to the handrails became a challenge at times as the locals would just sit down and block access to the handrails. We were told that the locals prefer the steeper sections as it is good exercise for them and tend to avoid the sections which are not as steep. Our private tour guide said that there were no toilets at the top - he was wrong, unless of course he has never walked the distance that we did in the hour it took us to get to a relatively high spot, where the wall divided. We had clear blue skies so views were breath-taking when we got to the top, so well worth it.
