          Amazing Experience
          We decided to drive to Jinshanling and had a great day. Our driver Yu Yongtai picked us up directly from the hotel and drove us to the ticket counter. We were able to communicate very well with his translation app. He was very helpful and polite. He had enough water for us with him for the journey and the way to the wall and the air conditioning made the journey very pleasant. We got a few tips from Yu Yongtai and then hiked up the wall. The view was breathtaking. The section of the wall was not crowded at all and we hiked for three hours on the restored and unrestored parts of the wall. Afterwards, Yu Yongtai drove us back to our hotel. It was a trip that we can only recommend!

          Five-Star Experience with Zhang Bo
          My friends and I booked this trip to Jinshanling with Zhang Bo and we had an excellent experience. Mr. Zhang met us at our hotel in central Beijing with a placard that read our names. We then drove just over two hours to the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall. Having been to another section of the Great Wall before, I am very impressed with Jinshanling. The views are fantastic and there were only a small number of other hikers. We decided to hike from Mid-Gate to East Gate and met Mr. Zhang up the road. I suggest others take note that certain sections of the wall are quite steep and strenuous. In addition, I feel the price is reasonable given the driving distance and wait time - we departed from our hotel at 8:00 AM and returned at 4:30 PM (giving us about three hours on the wall). Overall, this was a five-star experience. As a last note, I advise any foreigners leaving Beijing to Jinshanling/Simatai to bring their passport. Since the wall is outside of Beijing in Hebei province, you pass through a police checkpoint as you return to Beijing. This is easygoing, but you must produce your passport.

          The best birthday I’ve ever had
          William Kuang was the best guide we could have asked for, me made sure we had a great time while hiking and also took some stunning pictures of us. Really recommend doing the tour with him. It was my birthday and it was 100% worth the visit.

          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.
