I had booked a trip via Viator about a week upfront. It was supposed to be a small group trip to the Great Wall including a foot massage afterwards.
I met up at the pick-up location, only to be told by my guide Cherry that I would be the only one! So I had a private tour to the Great Wall on a cloudless, sunny, cold day in November. We left at 7am in Beijing which meant we were there at 8:30am. I climbed up the stairs to the Wall and was rewarded with a STUNNING view in peace and silence as I was ALONE up there!!! Guess you know how rare this feeling is in China ;-)
Only little downside was that the initial 4h Great Wall hike were only 2h as my guide had to be back in town by 1pm. However, I managed to take an extensive walk, great pictures and took amazing memories with me. Once I went back down at 10:30am it was already starting to get busy and full - so it's worth being early out!
The foot massage was amazing and well deserved after this day and the hikes the days before. Cherry was a fantastic tour guide with lots of enthusiasm and great knowledge. Well planned and very punctual. Can only recommend booking trips with Urban Adventures!
