          Amazing place and driver
          Had an amazing time today with this activity! We went together with 6 friends and had Mr Tian (田伟) as private driver. He was very friendly and accommodating. He helped us buy the tickets, dropped/picked all of us at our different hotel locations and even offered us some water and Coca Cola in his car. The place itself is also stunning ! A must visit if you’re around. We highly recommend to have Mr Tian as driver if you’re planning to go.

          Great views
          We had a great visit, which exceeded our expectations. Our driver, Mr Tian, was polite and considerate. The views of the wall were spectacular, and the water town turned out to be much nicer than we thought. We took the gondola up and back down. The standard length of the trip is 8 hours, but we felt we needed at least an hour longer to really enjoy the views after nightfall.

          Safe and quick drive to Simatai
          Zhang Bo was an excellent driver. I felt very safe and comfortable with him. He offered me water during the drive. Picked me up in the hotel lobby and was waiting for me on the arranged spot at Gubei water town. Although Zhang Bo only knows a few words in English, communication was very easy with the translator app and just our face expressions :) Five stars well deserved!

          Great experience with the Great wall private transfer
          Today I had a great experience with private transfer to the Great wall. Driver Tian Wei arrived on time to pick me up in the hotel,car was very clean. I also appreciated that there was bottled water,as I forgot mine in the hotel, and fresh fruits. It was a pleasant detail. Tian Wei was helpful and professional, he drove carefully and helped me with tickets on arrival. He speaks chinese,but its totally fine as google translator helped a lot,so everything went smoothly. I had my 3 hours to enjoy the wall. It was very nice and comfortable experience, literally nothing to complain, just one big thank you! I highly recommend this service!

          Fantastic Experience to Jinshanling Great Wall with private driver
          Our driver Tian Wei 田伟 师傅 was so helpful! He got to our hotel lobby earlier than the expected pickup time. His car had adjustable reclining chairs with leg rests, along with bottles of water and coke. He was even had cherries and bananas too which was really impressive! His driving was so smooth too. Tian Wei was a great help in getting our tickets smoothly! Before the hike started, he took out two ice cold water bottles from a cooler in his car which we were extremely thankful for during the hike. He even offered to bring us to an affordable quaint lunch spot for some food after our Jinshanling Great Wall. A fantastic experience and I felt very welcomed and safe throughout!

          Great Day at the Great Wall
          We had the best tour guide Jack and the best driver 孙志升。When you book through Discover Beijing Tours, they made sure everything was covered. As recommended by the guide, we moved our itinerary to avoid the peak dumpling festival. Take note that at the visitor centre, everyone has to get off and take their internal shuttle. The guide bought us return tickets on the funicular. Very worth it as climbing up and down the wall can be exhausting . Jack also knew where are the photogenic spots. Our tour was very efficient. Driver 孙’s standard was top notch. Brought us there and back safely. Car was very clean.

          Great day at the Great Wall
          We had a wonderful trip to Badaling. Our host chauffer Jason picked three of us from our hotel on time at 8:00 and drove us to the Badaling part of the Great Wall. The car was clean, air-conditioned and stocked with water, which was very helpful for the hot weather oustside. We could communicate main things in English. At Badaling, Jason guided us all the way to the Wall, making sure we passed the ticket booth and cable car entrance. All in all the journey was amazing!

          Great driver makes a difference for our trip to the Great Wall. Look for Mr Zhao Jin Fu who is punctual, considerate
          Our driver, Mr Zhao Jin Fu, also double up as our guide and recommended Mu Tian Yu instead of Badaling as our visit coincide with a public holiday. He is punctual, helped to take pictures and assisted us in our walk under the extremely hot weather of 36 degrees. He is patient with the elderly and willing to climb more with my kid. Even though the package provides us with a driver, Mr Zhao is more than our driver. He is considerate and also provided a box of snacks for my kid. We are fortunate to meet Mr Zhao Jin Fu. He makes a difference in this trip to the Great Wall.

          Excelent spot, less crowded.
          Or driver, 张建我 (Zhang Jianwo) was amazing. He picked us up from our hotel and drive us safe to simatai. Our trip was transport only, but he put us an audio to explain the history of simatai and walked with us all the way to Gubei. The place was so nice we decided to stay more time and he waited for us. The trip includes 9 hours, it takes 2 hours to get there and 2 back, and 5 hours there is not enough. Consider staying more time up front. Overall the trip and service was excelent!!

          The most convenient way to explore the Great Wall without crowds
          We booked the 9-hours tour, the tour booking process was smooth. The driver met us at the hotel lobby and took directly to the Jingshanling Great Wall cable car entrance and bought the entrance tickets for us. We also purchased separately the cable car tickets to go up onto the wall itself (a good way to save time). One way by car takes approximately 2,5 hours from the center of Beijing. We started our tour at 11:00 and around 13:30 we were at the cable car. On the wall upon leaving the cable car, we took the West direction and went till the end, the last parts of the wall in this direction are original and have never been restored (but safe). From there we went down to where we started (cable car entrance) from the Taochunkou tower. We were at the cable car entrance at 16:30 (the driver told us to be back at 17:30 and we thought the way down from Taochunkou tower will take longer considering that the exist close at 17:00, in fact the way down by foot from Taochunkou tower to cable car entrance takes around 15-20 minutes only). We didn’t have a chance to explore East direction, so if you want to want to explore both directions, make sure to book more than 9-hour tour. If you want to explore the Great Wall without crowds (in fact, almost alone!) - going to Jingshanling seems to be the best option. The driving was very comfortable!
