Spent a fantastic day with Paul on a biking and hiking day trip to the Great Wall while visiting Beijing. Paul is a very attentive and knowledgeable guide who took me to a very quiet part of the wall for what was a truly memorable day out.

On recommendation from a friend I contacted Paul to take a visiting friend and I on a tour of the Great Wall during a very quick trip to Beijing. I had visited the Great Wall before at the Badaling section and was disappointed by the crowds and the tourist feel so I didn't want to put my friend through the... More

My wife and I booked a great wall tour with Paul on half day's notice and fortunately he was open. We went to the Huanghuacheng section of the wall instead of the more crowded Badaling or Mutianyu sections and we are so glad we did that. The hike was a little tiring but so worth it with such beautiful scenery... More

My husband and I did the Huanghuacheng Tour with Paul at the end of a week long stay in Beijing. After spending days navigating big crowds at other tourist attractions in Beijing, having the opportunity to see the Great Wall in solitude, with absolutely no crowds, was amazing. Huanghuacheng is a great stretch of the Great Wall and from there... More

Thank you for the perfect non-touristic trip to the Great Wall. Paul was very friendly, perfect on time and a safe driver. After a short photo stop at the olympic city he even helped us to order some delicious dumplings in a traditional shop.

Dear Cathleen, I'm very happy that you could review me. The farmer restaurant we ate is very popular for Beijinger, everything you did that day is same as local people do. I will not take my clients to tourist area where can give me some kickback for ever. I like your couple. Thanks again. Paul. More
