My group (3 ppl) hired Paul to take us to the Great Wall of China (Jiankou) for a more authentic experience. I had travelled to the Great Wall as a child but it was to a very touristy area so it felt crowded. This time around I wanted to experience the wall before it was restored and a more adventurous...

My husband and I booked the Jinshanling Great Wall tour with Paul. It was important for us to hike parts of the wall that were not restored and we wanted a decent hike. We got it! The areas of the Wall we hiked were virtually empty of other tourists; we felt like we had the whole thing to ourselves. It... More

We booked a Tour with Paul on Easter Sunday 2015 and everything worked like a charm! He arrived in time to pick us up from our Hotel, drove safely through traffic to the countryside to the Great Wall. Arriving there, we did quite a nice walk through non-touristic parts of the Chinese Wall. He is a very kind and guide... More

It was perfect, super comfortable, easy and rich in discoveries as much for the number of things that we have seen as for the things learned on the Chinese culture. Every good review on him you read is true! Everything is by car, the value for money is very good, you eat in nice places and taste new flavours. Paul... More

My sons and I visited Beijing in May for 5 days, and fortunately met Paul at the Forbidden City on the 2nd day. We were a bit skeptical at first being approached by a stranger to go on a private tour, but the photos Paul showed us, and the fact that we were hoping to go to a more remote... More

Thank you for the once-in-a-lifetime tour! We took a private Great Wall hike with Paul from Jinshanling to West Simatai. Paul was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Pre-trip, he was responsive on email - providing quotes and answering my questions. He was able to customize our departure time in order to maximize our touring time. He... More

We booked a tour with Paul. He was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. He picked us up at our hotel. We spent one day visiting the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven. We spent another day visiting the great wall. We chose to ride bikes for 15 K and then hike to the wall. It was the highlight of our... More

During Easter of 2015 my wife and myself had a great guided trip to the Jingshangling Great Wall tram with Paul, whose services were recommended by a friend. After all the stories about the crowded Badaling I never expected to be almost alone in the Great Wall!! Great plan to go a little bit further. So in overall, It was... More

Paul is a great guy very kind and helpful. We booked the Huanghuacheng Great Wall as promised there were no tourists and that was perfect for me to take photos and enjoy the surrounding. He picked us up from the hotel at 9am and took us to few stops before going to the wall, we stopped at the Olympic park... More
