We contacted Jimmy just in the evening before the day of our visit to the Great Wall and we had, more than a driver, a guide, language facilitator and travel companion for our trip. We made the best choice, initially because we wanted to keep our luggage in a safe place as we had to go to the airport afterwards, but he offered us much more: help with the tickets and formalities, local food recommendations, a brief description of the monument, local legends and interesting details which made our visit to the Great Wall much more meaningful. We will definitely contact him again when we come back.

Jimmy was an excellent tour guide. He helped from the beginning by telling us a good location to book a hotel. His English is proficient. Everything went smoothly. Jimmy picked us up at our hotel and even helped us book tickets for the forbidden city for us to do after the Great Wall tour. We even left some personal items behind in Jimmy’s van and he was sweet enough to drop them off at our hotel later. 10/10 recommend.

I used to live in Beijing and used Jimmy on a number of occasions. I recently went back with friends and we hired Jimmy while in Beijing. He was absolutely amazing - he is very personable, friendly, knowledgeable on the history, and his driving and English are great. I'd highly recommend Jimmy for anyone.

After searching long and hard for a Great Wall tour that was affordable and avoided the shopping stops mandated by many, we found Jimmy...hooray! He and the driver were both awesome. Jimmy knows a lot about the Wall and Chinese history in general...plus he speaks English fluently. They picked the four of us up in a very comfortable van, dropped us back at the hotel, and handled all other logistics. Jimmy is knowledgeable, responsible, and conscientious. All we had to do was listen, learn, and enjoy!

We were at Mutianyu on Christmas Day. It had snowed the day before...so the skies were clear and the crowds minimal. It's an inspiring place! I highly recommend both Jimmy and the Great Wall.

I couldn't have hoped for a more knowledgeable or professional tour guide than Jimmy. He has fantastic patience with our 17 month old boy (and also with my wife and I at times!). The whole day was perfect from start to finish. I thoroughly recommend Jimmy and will be using his services again.

One of the best experiences we had in China. Jimmy was prompt. He showed up in time and also he suggested to meet earlier to have a better experience.
Jimmy took us to one of the best spots, clearly told us about the history and helped us to see and walk the great wall. The whole tour was fascinating and I totally recommend it.

Thank you 🙌🏻🤗🙌🏻Jimmy for an ⭐️amazing day at Mutianyu Great Wall! So much knowledge of the history of the Wall, 🇨🇳 China and Beijing and all spoken in very good English, Jimmy was the perfect guide and font of information for the tour. His driver 🚙 was very experienced and courteous delivering us safely to our adventure and back to the hotel. We travelled up by cable car 🚠 with Jimmy explaining the layout and where to go then after a while he left us to walk as much of the length and breadth 🚶‍♂️🚶🏻‍♀️of the Mutianyu wall as we desired. We proudly conquered the climb to Tower 20! (Which is not for the faint hearted❤️) ⭐️I have no hesitation in recommending Jimmy. ⭐️

My friends and I just finished the tour of the Great Wall with Jimmy! I would definitely recommend this tour as we had such a great experience. Jimmy picked us up at our hotel at 6.30 am as he suggested an early start to avoid the crowds. We took the 1.5 hour journey to the wall and the queues were moving fast and were minimal for China. We were advised by Jimmy which way would be the best way to get up the wall. We opted for a cable car up the mountain and a toboggan down the mountain which was so much fun! We had almost 2 hours of walking at our own pace on mostly flat surfaces which was perfect! We then finished the tour and picked a lovely Chinese restaurant before we left the grounds. He also advised us on where we could eat when the tour was finished! Would definitely recommend Jimmy as he took us away from the crowds!

A friend and I did Jimmy's Great Wall trip on September 4, 2018. Jimmy picked us up promptly at our hotel and while he drove us to the Great Wall, he answered all of our questions we had about the Great Wall and told us lots of information that we never knew. Jimmy knows his stuff and his full of knowledge about the Great Wall! Once we got to the Great Wall, Jimmy took us through the village and to the tram and told us exactly what we needed to know in order to have a great Great Wall experience. If you want a tour guide that will walk with you on the Great Wall itself while you yourself walk on it, then this is not the tour for you. My friend and I just wanted a guide who would provide transportation and logistics while my friend and I did our own thing on the Great Wall-and that's exactly what Jimmy provides! He safely transported us back to our hotel as well. Our Great Wall experience was everything we wanted it to be! Thanks Jimmy!
