Worth every penny! I met the guide inside the airport, everyone spoke English, were knowledgeable and the car was safe. It was really cold so the guide was ready with free jackets in the event you left your coat on the plane.
You guide yourself up and through the wall but again very safe.I would book another tour with this group.

I can’t recommend booking with these guys enough. Everything was made so easy with full directions to get out of the airport and our amazing tour guide Sherry was waiting for us. She was absolutely fantastic and so informative. A great photographer too! She snapped some awesome shots of my partner and I :) Not only was the tour perfect, but she also took us to a local traditional Peking duck restaurant and helped us order, she even paid when they wouldn’t except Visa and let us pay her back after. 10/10. Such a great way to spend a layover!! And they make it so stress free!

It’s strange to review something one technically hasn’t gone on, but I must cite at least this excellent hospitality and professionalism of Mr Yan and his team. My sister (who is an Indonesian) had some issue at the immigration so we could not leave PEK airport during our layover (the officer could not reveal much). We were so bummed as we looked forward to this tour after all the sterling reviews (and booking it months when we booked our trip).

Once I emailed Mr Yan about the issue, however, he followed up with a refund—and it was all so expedient without any hassle imposed on us after all the flying and queuing we had to do, no question asked.

Thank you very much for going through all that hassle for us, Mr Yan, and we are sure to recommend anyone who may be keen on such tours. We hope also to join one of your tours soon :)

We had a layover in Beijing and we decided to take a tour to see the Great Wall. The opportunity to see the Great wall was amazing,but the guide wasn't informative at all. She said like 10 sentences on a bus and when we got there she got us tickets +plus she got us tickets for cable car (extra payment). Then she said come to this spot in 2 hours that was it. So honestly I don't see any reason to include information that there is a professional guide with a group. And I also don't think that price for this tour was reasonable, we paid 85$ each.
The positive thing was that the pick up and the drop off was at the airport.

My friend and I had a14 hour layover. Our flight arrived ay 5am and our connecting flight left at 7:40pm. We selected to just see the Great Wall. We drove with 5 other people in a mini van to the Great Wall. There is a short hike to the entrance where you take a ski type lift up the hill to the bottom of the Great Wall. There you climb to the stairs that bring you up on top of the wall. It is unbelievable too finally be there.
The view is stunning and the fall colors are just beautiful.
We found prices quite high for food and souvenirs. What made the tour even better was our guide Lisa! She was full of knowledge and fun to talk to.

This tour is a must do! The Great Wall is truly magnificent and if it’s not on your bucket list it should be. Herbie was our guide and he is a big part of why the experience was so great (of course the Great Wall gets some credit, too). Herbie is very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information on the drive to the wall as well as during our stay at the wall. He was friendly, accommodating, flexible and a lot of fun. He provided guidance on the best place to buy souvenirs (more expensive at the top) and let us skip the lunch break at our request since we were enjoying our time up on the wall so much. He not only gave us information on wall, but on a variety of other topics and was very appreciative of all of our questions. An added bonus is that Herbie is an excellent photographer and he knew all the key spots to take photos from and even offers fun, creative poses. He has talent! Our driver was Mr. John and he was an excellent driver and quite charming even with the language barrier. His car was luxurious and immaculate, a sedan that felt like a limousine. If given the chance you must do this tour and ask for Herbie!

This worked out perfectly. The tour company provided great instruction on the procedure for getting out of the airport and provided a document to help with customs although we did not need it. Our guide Herbie was awesome and our driver Mr. Jung got us to the wall and back in one piece. I would high recommend this trip! Depending on where you land the 24/144 hour visa counter can be a bit tricky to find, we had to walk backwards through one of the fever scanning gates, which seems odd at an airport, but everyone at the airport in Beijing were friendly and helpful.

Perfect amount of time to get a bit of history in while we waited for the next leg of our journey. Car was comfortable and the scenery was beautiful on the way. Took the ski lift up and the toboggan back down which was fun! We then got to sample local food and shop for gifts. Got back in plenty of time to make our flight. Lisa was a great guide!

If you are like we were and had a 8+ hour layover in Beijing, this is definitely the way to go! The instructions to get your visa-free passport stamp were a little intimidating, but extremely accurate and helpful. Our guide, Jade, spoke great English, was extremely knowledgeable about The Great Wall/Chinese History, and she was THE NICEST person we met while in China. Once on The Wall, she had great recommendations on the best places to take photos, she pointed out great tidbits of information, even gave us advice on which souvenir shops were best. The only advice I would give that they don't tell you is to have a little more US dollars on you than you think you will need. Not included in the tour is a chair lift to the top of the Wall as well as a toboggan ride down. This costs about $18/person. We took this tour on the tail end of a long trip in other parts of Asia. We knew we needed to pay the balance of our tour, but didn't know about the lift/toboggan. I wish I could have given Jade a bigger tip, but it was literally all the US cash we had on us.
