Our family traveled with Leo's. We are two adults and two children under the age of 13. We received very good service from Leo's. Our driver was fluent in English and understood our questions and comments very well. He scheduled a time to leave that was appropriate and avoided traffic. He also informed us of other things to do while in Beijing. The car ride was comfortable.

I think the only negative was our daughter (10 years old) was dressed like it was a hot summer day and it was actually chilly on the wall, so she was cold for the walk on the wall. Our driver could have warned us about that when he picked us up.

All in all though a very good tour.

We visited the Beijing area in April 2018 and used Leo's tours to do the Jiankou to Mutianyu hike. The hike itself is a great way to experience the Great wall - first on the unrestored areas, and then on the restored sections closer to Mutianyu. The hike starts in a small village area on a simple wooded trail. This is a decent ascent - perhaps 800 ft or so as we estimated - to reach the Great Wall section near Jiankou. When you reach the wall, we used a bit of a broken down section with some stacked up stones to actually get on top of the wall section. This "access point" is only about chest high on an average person but the stepping stones are a bit shaky. Once on the wall, your biggest hiking challenges are now behind you. You'll encounter various "trail" conditions on the wall and through the towers - sometimes stepping over the "rubble" along the wall top sometimes stepping through some light bushes, and sometimes walking a bit close to the edge of the wall when the wall's a bit high - all of which which we found very enjoyable. We wanted to see what the unrestored sections are like, and this was a great way to do so. You'll generally be descending as you head toward Mutianyu and the restored areas.

As for Leo's services, we were most pleased. We used a driver only rather than a guide. Our driver James was a very pleasant and helpful person. The day we hiked was a bit rainy, making it questionable whether the trail through the woods to the Jiankou section would be reachable. The team at Leo's was very patient and helpful, offering lots of advice as we made choices. Ultimately we chose to hike up the wooded trail to Jiankou, and our driver accompanied us on the trail most of the way up until he was sure that the conditions were acceptable on the trail. Leo's staff also checked with us off an on during the hike. We made easy arrangements to meet the driver at the end of our hike. The staff from Leo's was knowledgeable, easy to reach and very prompt and reliable in their responses. We really enjoyed meeting James and were very impressed with his kindness and personable nature.

This was a great service. Our driver Jason was great. Showed up on time and spoke good english. He showed us where to go and told us where to meet him for pick up. We even accidentally left a hat in his car when he dropped us off and he drove back to return it. Thanks Jason! It was a great hassle free day.

This experience on the great wall at Mutianyu, was unbelievable and the main reason it's because of my driver Ma.

First about the service, he picked me on time down my hotel, we had a smooth drive to destination, then Ma lead me during the climbing with few stops to take some pictures on some spots he knows, Ma brought me on the roof of one of the sentinel, we brought some treats and a very good home tea and finish with fun pictures , with no one around us and a wonderful weather.

He explained me all the indication for the next meeting point. Then after few mistakes of my part Ma was very helpful in case I couldn't call him, he charged my phone with some credits, I missed a point he came by himself pick me up the station to came down with him .

We left the morning at 6.30 am finished the wall at 1.30pm and back at 3.40pm . He took a really care of me.

I highly recommend them, thanks to Leo and thank you very much Ma.

Officially, we had to scrap the trip to Jiankou due to weather, however, the driver took us to Mutianyu and gave us really good directions for how to still get on the wild section of the wall instead. Our driver was on time (actually, a few minutes early) and was fun to chat with about life in Beijing. He got us to the wall, and since it was snowing, we virtually had the place to ourselves. I highly recommend this service.
