What people are saying about Great Wall of China

Pretty good way to see the Great Wall at Mutianyu!

I took the 12 noon tour. We left a few minutes after 12 to wait for the other members of the group. The instructions on how to take the subway to the meeting point (Please take “Subway line 2” and get off at station “Dong Si Shi Tiao”(东四 十条). Following the signs for exit C, you will find yourself outside the Beijing Swissotel Hotel where the bus parking spot is just 50 meters to the east) were quite clear except the phrase "the bus parking spot is just 50 meters to the east." It would have been clearer to say "turn right and walk towards Chaoyangmen N St. The bus should be 50 meters to your right." The guide Mr Qiang spoke clearly and loudly in understandable English. He explained in details what to expect and provided those who did not book entrance and cable car tickets the opportunity to buy them through him. The bus was clean and nice. We had more than enough time to hike from Tower 14 to 20. I love the mountains behind the wall! The cable car line down was pretty long.

I wish there was more time at the Great Wall

great day trip, good tour of the forbidden city, a jade factory, tea factory/chinese medicine place and the wall. However, the queue to get up to the wall in the cable car (also, cable car wasn't optional, we all had to pay for it) was at least 50 minutes plus 50 minutes down, we were given two hours so obviously we were late getting back to the bus and still only had max 30 mins on the wall. Tour guide was excellent though. Also, we weren't told the pick up time and location until 7.30pm the night before - perhaps give warning to your customers of when they will receive the message as we were a little worried that we had not heard anything.

Great way to hit the tourist sites fast!

This tour was really interesting and hit all the major tourist attractions in one day while also providing some more cultural attractions in the form of jade and tea. Since I was on a tight schedule it was excellent to be able to see it all and still have enough time to enjoy the city on my own before leaving. Our tour guide was knowledgeable which brought the depth of history to the places we visited. One recommendation: get the cable car ticket. If you don't get it now, you'll end up buying it when you're there because otherwise it takes like an hour of uphill walking to reach anywhere nice on the Great Wall.

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.

Really good tour to a not crowded part of the wall

The Mutianyu part of the wall is really a good part to visit especially in the afternoon! There are not many people there and our tour guide Tony was really helpful and gave us tips what to see at the wall. He also made sure that we knew our options of going up or down and we could buy the tickets directly via him. And on this tour you don't visit some shops which force you to buy stuff. I would give this tour even more than 5 stars if possible :)
