Paid 470 rmb per person. We booked it because it brought us to Mutianyu Great Wall which is about 85 km from the city n... More

This was booked through our hotel, The Hilton Wangfujing £180 for 2 adults to see the Great Wall of China - plus added extras! The tour guide was nice enough, David I think, he didn't give us much history of China, talked more about the cars.... The Great wall was worth seeing but on the way back we stopped at... More

DONOT USE THIS COMPANY...this is my evaluation of the Hutong Pedicab tour - it's billed as a pedicab tour...I was in the pedicab for maybe 5 minutes and the driver asked me if I could walk, so we walked around the neighborhood. Later the cab was called back we were in it again maybe 5 minutes and he told me... More

Grayline is a well known brand in the tourism industry and I booked my tours blindly while in beijing. I don't think Grayline Beijing is actually run by Grayline. What i booked was a private tour turned out to be a Mini bus Tour. Our Guide started having political & personal conversations which made me highly nervous. As is the... More

I went on the full day tour to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. The trip is listed in the Gray Line brochure. Here are the details of the trips and my feedback. In short Gray Lines owns all the stops you go to. Its the largest tourist trap I have ever seen. Included: Visit to the Stone Place:... More

My family and I had thought that by spending a bit more money than average on a tour, we'd be getting a great experience - we were never so wrong. The brochure looked great from an initial read: Great Wall, Ming tombs, exterior of Olympic Stadium. Reality? 1 hour at the Great Wall, not even going to the one opened... More

My husband and I booked a tour at the grayline reception desk at Crowne Hotel Wangfujing. Only after paying for the tour did we decide to check out grayline's reviews on tripadvisor. Seeing mainly negative comments, I was highly skeptical of the company and the experience I might have. We booked the tour that includes Tiananmen Sq, Forbidden City, Temple... More

The tour is very expensive and canned. Good tour of the Great Wall but the rest was staged and almost a scam.
