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

After researching the various options for my recent trip to Beijing, I was completely satisfied with outstanding level of service, knowledge, and individual attention provided Paul. My goal was to experience the Great Wall away from the crowds using an experienced private guide to learn about the history and take some memorable photographs while visiting the Jiankou section of the...

We visited the great wall with Paul in April 2014. We did the 1.5 day trip including an overnight stay on the wall. The tour was excellently organized. We were picked up at our hotel and driven to a remote, beautiful , pristine section of the wall. On the afternoon of the first day we walked up to our camp-site... More

This visit remains one of our best merories of China. A great scenery & Paul as a guide made the experience really enjoyable. Paul has been very nice all along: he talked about the history of the Great Wall, sang a mongolian song for us, gave us a present at the end of the walk, and precious pieces of advice... More

During ten days in Beijing for teaching and observation in the music department at Minzu University, our hosts kindly arranged both Sundays with Paul for me, my colleague, and his wife. On the first Sunday, Paul arrived promptly to our hotel at 9:00 a.m. as scheduled to pick us up for the day. We discussed our options as to which... More

Myself and a work colleague went on the 1 Day Jiankou Great Wall Hike with Paul on 4/4/2014 while we were visiting Beijing. We had an absolutely wonderful experience. The 8 km hike was sometimes challenging but always fun, the Jiankou portion of the wall did not disappoint. It was pretty fantastic - an experience I know will never forget.... More

We hired Paul as our guide to Jiankou section of the Great Wall and it has been a great experience with him. Please see below, for my wife's review, but on top of that I am going to add my opinion. I highly recommend Paul as a guide. I found him to be genuine, honest, patient, kind and sharing. He... More
