          The guide picked up from the hotel in a very comfortable car and provided us snacks & water. Ling explained us all the story behind the Great Wall and took care of the tickets. I would highly recommend her. Thank you very much for this amazing day!

          Thorough tour of cultural and historical sites in Beijing
          Our guide covered many of the places we wanted to visited and was very thorough in explaining the heritage sites. The travel was also very convinient as they provided a driver. Our guide May was very helpful and provided suggestions to enhance the itinerary including a visit to a teahouse and a theatre water show. May was kind and very accomodating to us. The pace of the tour is great if you want to see a lot of places within a small timeframe and snap a few quick photos along the way.

          Great Wall of China shenanigans
          It was truly amazing and Kong Li is a wonderful guide. I would recommend him to anyone! He provided water, bananas and gave us all the useful info we needed. Took us to the Great Wall and back safely.

          Enjoyable and exciting tour to The Wall
          I don't know why I always thought that getting to the Great Wall of China is much more complicated. But taking this tour with Mr. Kong made it very easy and enjoyable. The communication with him was very smooth from the beginning, he explained the details of the tour and suggested the best time for us to leave from the hotel. We left early morning, it only took 1,5h from the hotel and 9am we were already at the top of the hill at the Wall. We took the old fashioned opened cable car to the top and then slid down on the toboggan - both ways made the whole experience even more fun! We could spend as much time as we wanted, Mr. Kong was waiting for us and then drove us in his comfortable car back to the hotel while explaining us more about the city and interesting sights we could go see next time.

          My layover trip to Beijing
          Finally, I have visited and seen that the Great Wall of China, which was in my list of must see places and with the assistance of you, guys, starting from planning the whole itinerary with Lin Kong in the beginning and picking me up from the airport to those wonderful destinations in Beijing and back with a great person Alvin, this trip was much better than I had expected. The car was very nice, new one and very very comfy as I got private individual tour ☺️👍🏻. Alvin’s russian is very good 👏. One more thing to admit is that the trip was very safe and reliable, which is indeed very important for people coming to a new country for the first time. Many thanks, guys, and wish you all the best

          Great Wall
          We had a great tour. Our guide was Kevin. He worked really hard to insure that we had a good time. And we did. I highly recommend this tour. They really cared about us. The Great Wall can’t be accurately described in words. You just have to see it. We spent two hours walking on it. We planned for one. There is too much to see. Kevin didn’t miss a beat. He was just happy for us. Great tour! Kevin was the best guide we can imagine.

          An short but excellent experience in Beijing
          We only had 2 nights and 1 day in Beijing. Kong looked after us from start to finish. They arranged transfer from train station to hotel, and transfer from hotel to airport morning of departure. They tailored the tour perfectly for us. We chose to do Great Wall and tianamen square for our activities. They will drop you back to hotel or to restaurant anywhere in Beijing at the end of the day. We got an option of Sedan, or Tesla which was 1200RMB or Mercedes V class for 2400RMB. Ling was our tour guide and she was informative, charming and very patient throughout. She had our tickets pre booked for Tiamamen square, sorted out tickets at the Great Wall and also came along - very good tour guide and lovely person. If you have the extra budget i would highly recommend the Mercedes Vclass. The seats are massage chairs, recliners, heated and has phone charging pads, great big sun roof and windows. We got the vclass for all of our transfers and loved the experience. Thanks again guys

          Rita was an excellent guide! It was a busy week due to Chinese New Year. So book early in advance. We were not able to see the Forbidden City but made up for it by replacing with Ming Tombs. Overall, great tour and would highly recommend.

        I travelled to the Great Wall on Christmas Day with Alvin, who was excellent company for the journey there and back. Despite some tricky road conditions after snow fall, I always felt completely safe and relaxed with Alvin. His English was great meaning we could have a conversation the entire journey. Once at the wall Alvin assisted in getting all tickets etc. needed and waited at the agreed spot until the cold got to me and it was time to leave. Thank your a wonderful experience.

        Kevin met us at the airport as agreed, and he was very easy to communicate with. He speaks excellent English and is a very good driver, getting us to the Mutianyu section of the great wall as quickly and safely as possible given that it had snowed the night before. He arranged everything for us once we arrived at the wall and made the experience seamless. He also took photos for us! Highly recommended and would happily hire Kevin again if we return.

        The tour was very nice, simple but without any issue regarding logistics. The driver assigned (Mr Guo) came to my hotel on time with a very comfortable car (only for me) and the journey started. During the trip to the great wall we had a nice small chat .. he spoke English so no communication issues. The car had it A/A and water for me. At the arrival to the great wall he gave me the indications and tips about the tour, he came with me to the entrance, with tickets ready and came also to the top of the great wall with me .. after that he gave me 3 to 4 hours to walk around the place and waited for me at the parking place. We exchanged contacts so we could contact each other in case if any requirements. When I finished he took me back to the hotel again with good logistics and no issues. I specifically like this because I'm the kind of person who likes to visit this kind of tourist places with out a guide next to me all the time. So for me perfect. Recommended !!

She was amazing and very supportive, we recommend to use this trip if you want to save some time! Many thanks Lillian for all picures you made during our visit, thank you so much!!!!

        An amazing trip to a must-see destination. Our driver (the lovely and very polite Kevin) picked us up from our hotel promptly at 8am to drive us to Mutianyu. Drive takes about 90mins depending on the morning traffic in Beijing. Once there, he picked up our tickets, plus tickets for the cable car and toboggan (not included) - note, if you have spinal issues, I would avoid the toboggan. It was an unforgettable experience, but requires a long time holding an uncomfortable position!

        No tour along the wall, but it isn't really necessary. The scenery is simply spectacular.

        After about 3hrs on the wall, we returned to the car park where Kevin was waiting to take us back. Didn't use the full 8 hours, but we didn't need to, and any longer we'd have started to freeze! We went in mid Winter, and it was COLD. Absolutely incredible experience, though. Very highly recommended.

        We started our day traveling from Beijing city to Great Wall at 9:30am. The journey took us 2 hours. Arrived smoothly. Jim our English speaking driver is very friendly. Mutianyu Great Wall was easy to climb. Cable car services was a breeze not too crowded during the month of December. My kids enjoy the Toboggan ride going down.

        Great trip to the Great Wall. Driver gave some very good advise to go up with the lift and not with the cable car. Prooved to be absolutely right! We left the hotel early in the morning and I was one of the first tourists up there - makes Schuhe difference to the hours later in the day

        I wasn’t unsure what to expect when I booked the private tour with Kevin, and My husband and I were beyond pleased with the his customer service. He arrived at 8am sharp to pick us up and let us take a nap on our way to the Great Wall. He was kind, helpful and was able to drive us to a further point where most tourists would have to walk otherwise. At the end he made a stop at a stone carving place and then helped us quickly arrange tickets to the Tiananmen Square (that was huge, cause it would have been complicated without his assistance). He spoke great English and made us feel comfortable the whole time. It was our first time to Beijing and if we go back, I’ll be sure to reach out to him again. If you’re looking to do a private tour, I highly recommend him.

        David was our tour guide and driver for the Mutianyu Great Wall. Overall, everything was easy and delightful! David picked us up from our hotel in Beijing and drove peacefully out the wall. He presented us with the two options for getting to the top: either an enclosed gondola, or a chair lift up with the option to take a mountain

        The tour was very well organized. We had a comfortable ride and enough time to enjoy the spot, buy souvenirs, have some snacks etc.

        ling Huilan, our tour guide, is proficient in English and she is extremely kind and helpful. She guided us throughout the whole tour and helped us also with the local vendors(e.g Translating for us in order to buy souvenirs and do some shopping)

        I strongly recommend them
