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

Dear Sarah Williams and Alyssa Harmon, Thanks a lot for your excellent review. You know that your hotel is not only very far away, but also very difficult to find. So I insisted on driving your back at your hotel after the acrobatic show, the taxi service is not good sometimes in Beijing. your are so young and so beautiful,... 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

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

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

Paul took us on an excursion in the Jiankou section of the great wall a few days ago.

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
