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

I booked a day trip to see the Jiankou section of the wall with Paul on May 7, 2014. He arrived at my hotel promptly at 8am. Paul is a Chinese gentleman who speaks good English, and when I say he is a gentleman, I truly mean it. He was extremely well informed about any questions I had about China,... 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. At the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng we climbed all in all 4 km from one watchtower... More

Paul took us on an excursion in the Jiankou section of the great wall a few days ago. My coworker and I had limited time to go (had to catch the 5:50 high speed train back to Shanghai), so Paul volunteered to pick us up extra early to start our trip. He arrived promptly at our Hotel to pick us... More

Our trip to the great wall was arranged through our hotel. Paul, our guide, made the day enjoyable, informative, and memorable. I was with a colleague from Australia (I'm from the U.S.). For a reasonable fee (from our vantage point), we got a private car, a driver and the separate guide who went by the western name "Paul." We both... More

My boyfriend and I visited Beijing from 6/27 to 7/1, and Paul guided us for 3 days. Our main attraction of the trip was of course the Great Wall, but we wanted to go with a private guide like Paul who can speak English and know the history. I cannot say enough good things about Paul, his professionalism, knowledge about... More

Last weekend was my first time in Beijing, so, of course, I wanted to go to the Great wall. However I know that many parts of it are very touristic...so I started looking for an alternative. That is how I found PAUL via Great Wall Expert ( phone number:(0086)13501083880 / www.greatwallexpert.com). Paul was waiting for us at 8am in our... More

I was invited to deliver a series of lectures on music at Minzu University in Beijing. The institution generously arranged for my colleague, wife, and I to take two sight-seeing visits with Paul (to the Great Wall and to the Forbidden City). My preference on these types of outings is to be IN the scenery as opposed to LOOKING at... More
