I initially had a difficult experience getting out of Beijing Airport. Upon arrival, took 4 hours after landing to secure a 24 hour temp visa. Wasn’t a great first impression. I thought I had to cancel my tour since I wasn’t going to be there in time for the 8:30 pickup. Support was really amazing on email and sympathetic of my situation. They told me not to worry and the driver will wait until I get everything sorted. But I was given a heads up that I couldn’t do both of the attractions due to time constraints. It has been a lifelong dream to see the Great Wall, so I elected to make sure I got to visit there no matter what. The company honored a small Refund for not being able to visit Summer Palace :( which was appreciated. The moment I arrived at the hotel, Susan my awesome personable guide and the driver made me felt at ease from the very start. Although I was very jet lagged I was too excited. Had a great conversation with the bunch about American movies and Chinese culture. We made a pit stop to a local lunch spot (which was included), food was delicious! Probably the best freshest Chinese food I ever had. Soon after we head over to the Great Wall. Had to take a brief bus transfer over to the cable cars, the ride up the car was amazing in itself. So simple compared to what type of effort (I can’t imagine) it took to climb and build 2,000+ years ago. Soon as the cable car opened and I took my first step onto the Great Wall, Magic was in the air. The views, the people, the history...Pictures nor words don’t do justice. My guide Susan was a trooper walking the harder part with me. But she also let me climb ahead and waited around (held onto my backpack) until I returned. She Took great photos for me... I’ll cherish the photos and experience forever. Highly recommend!

We went for day trip to Mutianyu great wall in Feb.

Although we booked a small group tour, we were the only people so ended up with private tour.

The weather was great. Our tour guide Jimmy was great - knowledge, perfect english.
He managed to get us there before all the queues and so we got the wall to ourself!
We took the ski lift up and tobbogan down.

Lunch was great, authentic and nothing too weird.

The driver was prompt (no waiting around), car clean, with bottled water available.

Summer palace was beautiful, and our guide took us to all the key areas.

Would strongly recommend the tour and our guide Jimmy.

We had an awesome trip to Beijing. All thanks to our amazing tour guide Linda. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows very well how to navigate the crowd. We toured with her for 2days and she showed us around Great wall, Summer Palace, Forbidden City and Lama temple. Being peak rush season, Linda made sure we leave early and avoid the crowds. She was very sensitive to the fact with two small kids she looked for shorted possible routes and we don't waste time lining up for tickets. We also saw an acrobatics show and I must say here Linda really went out of her way to get us the best seats ever. She made our trip very memorable, comfortable, simple and hassle free. She is extremely good in English and highly recommend her. She is the best!

This tour is a fantastic choice if you have a day spare in Beijing. This section of the wall was different to see the other parts of the Great Wall that we saw. The guide knew a lot about the history of the Summer Palace and this was nice to look at.

Just husband and I took the private tour or the Great Wall and summer palace. Our guide was Susan who was absolutely wonderful! It was golden week, so we left at 7 am for our tour which was perfect. We had our section of the walk almost to ourselves. Many tourists were arriving as we left. She took many photos of us at the wall in great locations. We really enjoyed hearing all of the history, culture and even everyday life. We were early for lunch, so we stopped at a tea House and had a tea ceremony. This was a free extra opportunity for us and was wonderful! A great surprise for our tour. Lunch was fabulous and was at an authentic small Chinese restaurant. We told our guide what we liked and she picked out a perfect lunch. We enjoyed the summer palace as well. Overall, I kept telling my husband this was my favorite day of our trip. Susan was just wonderful! Our driver was also great. He had a very nice car and was dropped us off and picked us up at great spots.

This was a very good tour. Susan did a good job as our tour guide. She let us go at our own pace. She was good with time and directions. She took us to a very, very good place for lunch. It had a lazy susan on the table but there was nothing lazy about our Susan, the tour guide. We had a great time on our trip to the Great Wall and to the Summer Palace.

Anson was our guide for the day. He was excellent! He knew which section of the wall to show us to avoid the crowds, made sure we had plenty of time for photos and provided plenty of history on both its construction and China in general. His enthusiasm and energy maintained throughout the day, with a stop at lunch (where he had organised our table and delicious food for our arrival), the Summer Palace (with lots of interesting facts) and then a brief stop near the ‘Bird’s Nest’ on our way back to the hotel for a few more photos. Both he and the driver kept us safe, on time and ensured our tour was very much enjoyed and one to remember!

My husband, 17 month old son, and I did a private tour of the Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace with Jimmy in March 2019. It is our most favorite and memorable experience of our trip to Beijing. Jimmy was prompt and full of knowledge. He told us about the incredible history and stories of the Wall and Summer Palace in such a way that was so interesting and captivating. Our car was comfortable and the driver was great. It was such a relaxing fun experience. Jimmy was so interesting and chatty. It felt like we were with an old friend. He was so great about taking photos and making sure we got all the shots we wanted. Our 17 month old loved him and Jimmy soon became his new play mate. Our experience with Jimmy on this tour was so amazing that I reached out to him to ask if I could book another tour of the Forbidden City with him. That was an equally incredible experience. My husband and I both agree, there is absolutely nothing else Jimmy could have done to be a better tour guide. He was a perfect in every way! I highly recommend this tour, but Jimmy will elevate the experience!
