Great Wall tour was amazing. James the tour guide was very helpful and spoke good English. He was very accommodating throughout the day and made us feel at ease throughout the tour with no pressures. He gave good advice and a had a good knowledge of Beijing. The lunch was very good, albeit a little too much for us. I would recommend this tour as good value for money.

All went very well. The tour guide, Joyce, called on time to schedule pick up from hotel and was on time in the morning. Car was waiting with the driver and we had a nice ride up to Mutianyu. Joyce was excellent and I enjoyed discussing with her China history and the special aspects of the Great Wall. Upon arrival Joyce effectively and quickly arranged everything and we found ourselves on the chairlift with a wonderful view of the mountains and the great wall. On the wall Joyce was very helpful in suggesting the route and encouraging me in the tough climbing spots. She was patient and very helpful. It was a wonderful, and tough experience. A must for everyone. We celebrated the end of the tour with sparkling wine and great snacks. On the way back we had a great Chinese lunch and arrived happy and safely back to the hotel. Ask for Joyce!! She is great. The entire experience was wonderful. Great wall is unbelievable.

This tour is a must do, we did it in style with James who was the best tour guide ever, kept us informed, knew every piece of history, local knowledge, collected amazing snacks for us to eat, it was suppose to be a small group tour and we were the only ones on this tour, so plenty of attention that is for sure. James goes out of his way to make sure the rest of your holiday is well informed, you are safe, he is always on time, speaks great English, makes sure the driver is on time, going where is suppose to. The driver was a great driver as well. James you made our tour to the Great Wall absolutely fantastic and we will never forget you. If we go back to Beijing we want JAMES. Sitting there with our special food and wine gets plenty of envious looks I can tell you.

We only had one day to go to the Great Wall and it turned out it was pouring rain on the day we went. The weather didn and #39;t stop us going and despite the weather our tour guide was so positive and also endured the rain to show us around. Champagne followed at lunch. It was the best day!!

An absolutely amazing tour guide, full of energy and enthusiasm. Great way to see the wall and I would definitely recommend the toboggan down from the wall.

This was the highlight of our trip in China.

An amazing experience! The views were outstanding, the tour guide was fantastic, offering a lot of great information about the Wall and China itself. Plus every other tourist was jealous of our snacks and sparkling wine picnic. It really is a must-do trip.

I can and #39;t say enough good things about Beijing and all that we saw! The Great Wall was a bucket list item for me to celebrate my 50th birthday, and James was gracious enough to allow us to bring a special bottle of and #39;66 Dom Perignon champagne. He was an excellent guide - very pleasant and knowledgable

Great tour to the Great Wall. We did join this tour as a little bigger group after a regional company meeting. While any visit to the Great wall is already impressive and memorable the team did provide picnic for us on top of the wall and top of one of the watch towers. Certainly an unforgettable experience for all of us. Special thanks to our tour guide Candy for the well organised and informative day.

We had a great experience with our guide, Rockie, on a picture perfect spring day. Rockie was knowledgeable and friendly and took us on a fun adventure to a watch tower ruins where we enjoyed champagne and snacks. We rode the cable car up and recommend doing that, as the steps and walk along the Great Wall are challenging and it gives you more time on the wall. We did the tobaggan slide down and that was fun too. Only hiccup was the horrible traffic we encountered, but it was a Saturday, so lots a people were on the road.

The day started off cold and rainy, but turned out to be a great day. The guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. The driver was also very good. It was a fantastic experience.

We were completely satisfied with our hiking tour at the Mutianyu Great Wall. Our tour guide - Rockie - was knowledgeable, friendly, and knew how to keep us informed, but also allow us to feel completely unstructured. The day just moved along. Our driver was extremely efficient, and knew how to best get us through Beijing traffic.
I'm glad we selected the hiking with picnic. There was not pressure, no shopping, and the picnic snack was a great break while on the Wall. We had lunch at a local restaurant after leaving the Wall.
This was my second trip to China, and first to Beijing. The Mutianyu Great Wall is incredible! I never dreamed I would be walking the Great Wall, there it was. The facilities at the base - the greeting center - were new, clean, and pleasant. They fit the surroundings. The wall offered incredible views.
I highly recommend this tour.

We ended up being the only ones on the tour. Awesome experience and the champagne was a nice touch! Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and very patient as we took hundreds of photos.

This tour was the highlight of our visit to Beijing. Our guide, Judy, was amazing. Very informative and friendly. The Wall is simply breathtaking and the picnic on the Wall was really special. Other tourists were jealous! Highly recommended!!

Our guide, Daniel Wang, was the best. He knew everything from the history of the wall to the cost of living differences between Beijing and the US. We went all the way to the infamous tower 23 (which is a very steep hike at the end). The champagne picnic was a nice snack (yes, try the yak jerky!) and the lunch at the garden restaurant was delicious. And after it all, Daniel gave us valuable info on some of the things we were planning to do with the rest of our trip and left us his card to call him if we had any troubles. Daniel Wang truly covered it all and then some. Thank you, Daniel and Viator

Excellent tour, our guide Daniel was extremely knowledgeable and well versed. Daniel provided a very nice picnic inside the wall and after the tour we had a fantastic lunch at a nearby restaurant.

It was freeing to let the tour guide handle the logistical hootenanny while I was able to simply enjoy the rustic beauty of this magnificent structure. Our tour guide was friendly, professional, and timely. She balanced well our need to have privacy at times, but her company was enjoyable nonetheless. She shared a lot of history with us about the Great Wall - some bits more unnerving than others! (I won't ruin the surprise) ;-). The only areas that could be improved were largely out of our tour guide's hands, such as traffic and the general zoo that is overcrowded China. LOVED the picnic. Be sure to bring walking shoes and extra water.

My family of five took this tour to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. The service was fantastic. I corresponded with the company prior to our trip (through Viator) in order to advise them that my family included three parents in their 70's with mobility issues. The company also confirmed our tour in advance and provided a contact name and phone number just in case. They showed up promptly at our hotel on time with a clean van, a nice driver, and an energetic tour guide (Jimmy). The guide took good care of us and was especially attentive to our parents. The day we went it was 110-degrees on the wall, but Jimmy took good care of us. The guide provided us with a picnic (snacks) and champagne in the shade...other visitors passing by were jealous! We saw so many wonderful things in China, but our tour to Mutianyu was the highlight.

This was amazing in Winter with Snow on the wall and very few people around. Tom was a wonderful host and he carried our snacks and drinks all the way to a high turret. Tom was very patient and caring and will be planning another trip again with my sister and hope we get Tom again. A great experience and well worth doing.

Without a doubt the highlight of our trip to Beijing. John, our tour guide, could not have been better. He was extremely generous with his time, and his knowledge of Beijing and the Great Wall was outstanding. At no time were we rushed and the picnic on the Great Wall was envied by all other tourists. We finished at a resaurant which was also of high quality and lots, lots of food. Our driver Mr Shing is a gentleman and could not have been more helpful or friendly. If you do nothing else, do this tour. Ask for John and Mr Shing. Simply excellent.

I would definitely recommend this tour. We were fortunate to be the only ones on the tour. John picked us up at hotel on time and spoke good English. He was very informative on the history of China and the Great Wall. He highlighted the key areas to have our pictures taken and promptly offered to take our picture. We had a memorable picnic on the Great Wall with a picnic blanket, Chinese snacks, and a bottle of champagne. We were definitely the envy of passing tourist and one commented that we knew how to do it right by having a picnic there with champagne. The lunch location and cuisine was definitely an introduction to the local cuisine. A stop by the Olympic Park was a nice added bonus. Many thanks for a memorable day!

Fantastic section of the Great Wall with not too many other tourists. Great restaurant for lunch after. Guide and #39;s English was not great - hard to understand him.

We enjoyed this private tour very much. Our guide was Jonathan and he did a very nice job and was fun to spend the day with. This part of the wall is less visited than Badaling. The wall itself is a series of steps and it's steep in places, but it's very beautiful. We enjoyed the picnic and sparkling wine. We also enjoyed lunch at a nearby restaurant. Fun day!

We were exited about this trip with Joyce. The smog and temperature was high, but we walked the wall for about 1.000 m. The bubbles and a marvelous China lunch was much appreciated. Joyce and her driver did their utmost to make the day unforgettable.
Thanks Henny and Trees
