I did 4 days with the BUA's guides and it was a great experience. I really liked the fact that the groups were small (we were 2 the first day, 3 the second, 6 the third and 4 the fourth). The guides were very nice. For example, I was with Michelle the second day. My friend and I asked her... More

My husband, 15 and 12 yr old sons and I took 2 different tours with this company and highly recommend both. First the Mutianyu Great Wall with Lina. Lina was spectacular - friendly, well organized, engaging and patient with our endliess stream of questions about the Wall and life in China in general. We took a mini-bus to the Wall... More

Very interesting tour, taking in the markets and walking through the Hutongs. The home visit was great, and although we got the make the dumplings, it would have been good to also see how the stuffing was made with the ingredients we had seen being bought. However, I would thoroughly recommend this tour as you will get to go to... More

Spent the day at the Mutianyu Great Wall with our guide Jerry, who was very knowledgable and accommodating for our small group. The 7am start was a bonus, beating the main crowds heading up the Wall as we were leaving. The 'Stairway to Heaven' was challenging, but well worth the view when you get to the rampart. Lunch was delicious,... More

What a full day of walking and adventuring! Michelle took us to see the Temple of Heaven Park, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and Jingshan Park. We used the metro (and yes the Beijing metro is crowded but it was fun and oh so cheap to use) and walked to our destinations, so we got to see a lot of... More

I highly recommend this tour if you want to see the Great Wall. Rather than the more touristy Ba Da Ling, this tour goes to Mutianyu. The great thing about this tour is that it leaves early. As a result you get to the wall before all of the tour buses start to arrive and you have plenty of time... More

A nice change from large group tours. Our guide, Michelle, met us and we took a local bus to get into the Hutong areas of Beijing. This was a great start to mix with the locals. We then walked through the streets of a hutong tasting the various sweets that locals eat. This led us to a local market where... More

I really enjoyed the walking tour of Beijing street food. Even though I was late, and at the wrong meeting point, my guide Michelle was waiting for me with a smile. Her knowledge and insight of the markets was only outweighed by her friendliness and accommodating nature. Within the first 10 minutes of the tour I felt like I was... More

Great day trip very well thought out. We took to the wall early and had a good hike up to a high vantage point. Our guide was excellent and gave us good information on key historical points. We had lunch in a farmers rural restaurant which was fantastic. The tour ended with some reflexology to the feet!! Much needed after... More
