We had a 8 hour layover in Beijing. Everyone told us that we would risk missing our flight if we tried to visit the Mutianyu Great Wall, but we decided to give it our best shot. We downloaded the DiDi app, which is like China's Uber, and went on a hour long ride to the base of the Great Wall. Once we got there, we had to get on another shuttle to get to the gate. Then, we got on a ski lift, which felt incredibly unsafe and risky, that took us to the top of the wall. It was early in the morning and there was no one else there. We took our pictures, walked along the wall, and marveled at how beautiful the view and the wall itself was. The wall was covered with millipedes by the way, if you're scared. They've installed a slide that you can go down to get to the bottom of the Wall, but that looked too unsafe to try. We were able to just barely make it back in time to catch our flight. It was so worth it!

We had Harry take us to the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace and other Beijing highlights for 4 days and had a fabulous time. We had our 2 20-somethings with us who thought he was cool, too. We arrived at 3:00 am in the morning Beijing time almost 2 hours ahead of schedule and were so worried that we wouldn't be picked up but Harry was there to greet us. He speaks excellent English, and is a great driver who navigated the insane Beijing traffic calmly and efficiently. He took us to a great local massage place to ease our tired muscles with rates that were unbelievably good and to a restaurant that served the BEST Peking Duck that we'll probably ever have in our lives. His van was comfortable and able to transport all 4 of us and our large bags with ease. He even took us to the train station and took charge of changing our train tickets to Xian, to a Chinese drug store when we needed lip salve and a Starbucks for a our coffee fix. None of which we would've been able to do since we don't speak Chinese without much pain and suffering. He was the best ever!!

I am always hesitant on hiring a private driver Because you never know who they are or how their personality is like. But after emailing back and forth with harry I felt confident and I trusted him.

He picked us up at the time I had asked to take my family to the Great Wall. He was very friendly, not pushy and had great English. His van was spacious and clean! It was very cold that day but he went with us up the Great Wall of china and took a few pictures for us too before letting us have our own personal time.

Later on he took us to a restaurant with great food! Then he dropped us off at the temple of heaven. He was patient and kind especially when my 3 year old started to act up and not eat and taking forever.

I would definitely recommend him to everyone and anyone who is going there. I hope he can come visit my family and I soon in Los Angeles so we can take him around 😃

When I booked this experience I expected to receive two things:
1) A private tour guide to provide historical & cultural information regarding Beijing & the Great Wall
2) A successful drive to and from the Great Wall
We received the following:
1) A driver who did not provide any information or point out a single landmark. We later found out he could not even tell us the name of one of the most famous buildings in China, the Great Hall of the People in the Forbidden City.
2) A drop off at the wrong hotel after confirming twice he knew where to drive. This incorrect drop off led to additional hours in traffic and missing our dinner reservation during our 1 night visiting Beijing.
Also, as noted under the “What to Expect” section of the tour posting it stated “During the tour, if you wish to have a lunch, your driver guide will recommend you some nice Chinese restaurant for some tasty local food” therefore we asked for a recommendation. The driver’s recommendation resulted in us purchasing very bad food, and at a high cost at a restaurant we did not know only accepted cash.
To put salt in the wound I requested a refund for this experience from TripAdvisor and received 10% of the full amount paid. Thanks TripAdvisor... I won't be utilizing your services in the future.

We stopped over in Beijing on the way to Japan recently, and wanted to spend the day discovering the Great Wall. We chose Harry based on TripAdvisor reviews and were extremely happy with our choice. We arranged a private day tour with Harry. He picked us up at the hotel and drove us to the Wall where he accompanied us up to the top for photos. His van is very comfortable and he provides water. Once on top he allowed us as much time as we needed. I could have stayed all day it was breathtaking but also very challenging in the heat. We walked for 3 1/2 hours with an 11 year old and I thought this was a great effort for us! Harry met us at the entrance again where we ate lunch - delicious dumplings! On the way back to our hotel Harry recommended a Peking Duck restaurant close to our hotel and we ate a fantastic meal there that night thanks to Harry. I would highly recommend Harry to anyone looking for a private tour guide in Beijing. He is relaxed but attentive. His english is excellent. He is a pleasure to deal with and made our day in Beijing just perfect. Thanks Harry!!

We booked Harry for a full day to the Great Wall and he recommended a cooking class local to the Wall over lunch time which was fantastic and really personal and private.
I honestly cannot recommend Harry more. He was so reliable arriving early to pick us up at the crack of dawn from our hotel and drove us so safely in his lovely car to the Great Wall. Fantastic English, so friendly, chilled and fun to talk to. He made the whole day an absolute pleasure, so fun, easy and memorable. he is so professional and really looks after you.
I'd recommend an early start to the Great Wall then booking the little dumpling cooking class for lunch just a short walk from the Great Wall. The food was the best we ate in Chin and it was so lovely having Harry join in with us and get to know him even more.

Do not hesistate to book him for any activities in Beijing.

We did a private day trip with Harry to the great wall of China at Mutianyu on the 28th October 2017 which worked out really well. We are a family of 5 from the UK ( 3 children aged 8, 6 and 3) and Harry picked us up in his new 7 seater Buick. Harry kindly arranged for a child seat for our 3 year old at no additional charge. Harry is a good driver and we felt very safe on our 2 hour journey to the wall. The car has bluetooth and so we streamed audio from out iPhone's on the journey which made the time pass quickly. Harry's English is pretty good and we were chatted about various topics during the day. Harry has a tourist permit and this allowed him to park right next to the cable car (other tourists have to queue for a shuttle bus from the main car park.) Harry accompanied us on our walk along the wall from watchtower 6 - 16 and back. He was able to give us some facts and answer questions about the wall. We returned by toboggan, which was great fun. All our children were too young too ride this alone, so Harry took one of our kids down. We had lunch in a local restaurant and Harry helped us to order a few things. We then travelled back to Beijing. Overall a great day, and would thoroughly recommend Harry as a private tour guide, which for a group of 4 - 6 does not work out that much different in price to a group tour, but which made it a much smoother and easier trip, especially with a family.

Harry picked us up in our hotel in Beijing for a day trip to the Great Wall (Mutianyu) and the Summer Palace. We left early in the morning to avoid traffic and lot of tourists at the Wall. Harry speaks fluent English and drives safely. His van is super clean and very comfortable with leader seats. Harry makes you feel great during the whole day trip and explains you a lot about the sightseeing. He organized all the tickets needed for you, so that you avoid queueing. Harry is a great professional. We definitely highly recommend HARRY to anyone willing to visit the Great Wall!!
