Excellent trip!

I booked this Badaling and Ming tomb bus Group tour for my sister Lauren, she said the tour was great, and the stories tour guide told were really awesome and informative. Group also visited a Jade factory and tea house. The Jade factory and tea place were very nice too. The overall tour of the Badaling Great Wall was simply amazing and a fabulous experience. The Ming Tomb got a lot of history. Truly impressive Wonder of the World! The Great Wall at Badaling was great and appreciated the opportunity to have more time on the wall, great tour, go it is so worth the money, excellent day!

What a fantastic day! Very good tour guide service!

This was a great tour! Our tour guide Sandy was well informative, approachable and made the tour bus ride between stops pass quickly. The Badaling Great wall and Ming tomb were interesting first stops before our visit to a jade factory where was also had lunch. Without a guide like this, you are missing out on just how big a feat, it was wonderful to see the great wall. Tea shop were informative and good deals were available if you were interested. We would recommend this tour in a heartbeat.

This was a great trip. Our guide, Leon, did a great job keeping us informed and together. Although our group signed up for Badaling, it was too crowded and the bus couldn't get through so we had to go to another part of the wall. I'm just thankful we were able to get on the wall at all. Leon had the foresight to get us there hook or crook! Thank you Leon for a good tour experience!

Everything was well organized. Our guid was very nice.
