          The hike from Jinshanling Great Wall to its east end is one of the most beautiful sections of the Great Wall of China. All the towers on Jinshanling Great Wall were constructed firmly and beautifully. Each tower has its unique feature and look. There are relatively less crowded here at Jinshanling Great Wall, and it is a nice place to explore the Great Wall around Beijing.

          Wonderfull Beijing Great wall & Forbidden City Private Day Tour
          We had great time with wendy, who’s coordinating our tour. This private tour for 4 pax already including delicious lunch and tea-tasting and Great wall and forbidden city. Our driver was kind and patient and our tour guide, wendy, could communicate well in English. She made sure we are comfortable while enjoying at the same time! I will definitely recommend this tour company.

          Amazing experience at Gubei and Simatai! Great Wall section
          Truly amazing and enriching all-day experience with Jack! He really wanted for us to enjoy the views and to transmit the history of the Great Wall and Gubei. We could understand him without problems. Super friendly and helpful. The only negative thing was that due to a delay in the highway we had to speed up a little in the sightseeing of Gubei. Our driver was friendly and kind. Very comfortable car. They gave us options for dinner and the restaurant was authentic Chinese style and delicious. Mary Ma was so kind and thoughtful! We could notice that they want us to enjoy the experience (more than a focus on the money). Totally recommendable!

          Winter magic in Mutianyu
          What an absolute fantastic experience. A clear winter afternoon going up the slope to admire a beautiful sunset on the mountains around the Great Wall at Mutianyu. Everything was perfect, starting from the airport pick up by our lovely guide Wendy, being driven in a comfortable car and enjoying an "almost private" visit. The cold of the late afternoon was not a deterrent but instead added a spark of magic with the snowy landscape. We completed the experience with traditional Chinese food and tea tasting. Back to the airport right on schedule for our connecting flight. Seamless

          Beautiful experience with Wendy
          My girlfriend and I had a beautiful time in Beijing with our tour guide Wendy. We had never been to China before, and we had a long stopover in Beijing on our way to Australia, and now I can safely say that this was the best way to spend the day. Wendy picked us up at the airport and took us to see Tienanmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall. She was very knowledgeable and happy to answer to our many questions. Also, the car was incredibly comfortable and way above our expectations. I can’t recommend this tour enough. It’s well worth the money!

          Amazing organization for my tour in China
          I read about Beijing Tour on TripAdvisor, I had a look at the review, at their website and I decided to contact them in order to organize my whole trip to China (Beijing, Xi’An, Shanghai). I told them my itinerary idea and they helped me to make it fit perfect for the time I had to spend in China. The staff was so good, so polite, so kind and so quickly to answer by email at any of my question. They booked for me the hotel, the tour guides with the drivers, and the train transfers between the cities I visited. My trip was simply perfect, the hotel accommodation were beautiful and clean and pretty near to some sightseeing of every city. The guides were well prepared and spoke a fluent and good English, they helped me a lot with chinese language and gave me some advise on where to eat or to do special thing in my free time. Also the driver were so good, punctual and good driver even if they didn’t speak English. Even once I was in China they quickly answered to every my question. The price was fair. If I will go back to China I will book for sure again with them. I absolutely reccomend to book any kind of tour with them, you will not regret.

          Poor Experience. Mary Ma provided very poor customer service
          Poor experience. Refused to design an itinerary per the specifications that I had requested. Terrible customer service from Mary Ma the Sales Manager, who was rude and rigid in her communications

          We had a breathtaking experience!
          We were picket up by our charming guide Angela at our hotel. Angela was eloquent and engaging and made the trip fun and interesting. At Angelas recommendation we took the chairlift which gave us a really nice view of the wall. We went on a Tuesday afternoon, there were almost no other tourists, so it seemed like we got the Great Wall almost to ourselves. The Great wall was a breathtaking experience! We got down using the car slide/toboggan. Overall an excellent trip!

          Great experience !
          Brilliant experience. We were picked up at 8 on the dot as organised the evening before with our guide calling us at the hotel to ensure this was suitable. We had about 1h30 drive to Mutianyu but the car was very comfortable with water and aircon. Jack was a brilliant guide - he gave us an interesting overview of the history of the Great Wall and was super friendly! He was great to talk to and super organised once we had arrived at the wall. We just had to give Jack the money for the cable car (or you can get toboggan) upon arrival which was easy and he was quick at retrieving them. Then he led us up to the entrance of the Great Wall and gave us instructions at every step so we were not confused and knew what part of the process was occurring. Jack gave us so much valuable history and interesting facts - showing us certain sections of the wall, asking us questions and highlighting key parts that were valuable for us to see and know about. He took us to ideal photo spots and ensured he followed our pace, ensuring our comfortability. We couldn’t thank Jack more for making our experience so interesting and insightful and I’d definitely recommend this company if you want a guided tour or if it’s your first time going to the wall as the process was so smooth and enjoyable! We were dropped back at our hotel at the time given online and didn’t feel rushed at all during our experience - it was the ideal amount of time for us!

          Private Tour of Mutianyu Great Wall and Hutongs
          We had a great guide in Jack, who spoke very good English and was our guide for the day. Jack was so enthusiastic in wanting to show us as much as possible in the time allowed and give us all the history and background to the Great Wall and then the Hutong and local surrounding areas. Also plenty of photo opportunities. We had fantastic visibility and weather, cold but very sunny. The views of the Wall and surrounding area were beautiful. Walking and taking the rickshaw tour around the Hutongs was really interesting . I booked the trip having found the company on Tripadvisor and was really most impressed by the speed of response to all inquiries as it was a private day out for a group of four, that we were able to plan with them, also the acknowledgement of payments and where, when and by whom we would be met for our trip. Would definitely recommend them.

          Wonder of the world
          Walking through the Great wall is a totally different experience. You can imagine the architectural excellence and hard work put in by thousand of workers to make it a reality and is a real symbol of survival of mankind.

          Private tour: Greatwall and Huaibei Ski Resort
          Our tour was customized according to our request. Vicky, who’s coordinating our tour has been very accommodating with all my queries. Worth the money considering that it’s a private tour for 3 pax already including delicious lunch and tea-tasting and jade lessons! Our driver was kind and patient and our tour guide, Angela, could communicate well in English. She made sure we are comfortable while enjoying at the same time! I will definitely recommend this tour company.

          Very nice trip!
          Today we did the half day wall tour. Jackie came for us at our hotel, perfectly on time. The drive to the wall was great, the driver drove very safely and Jackie told us so much already. He knows all about the wall, China and has an answer to every question asked. He helped us with other things as well, such as places to go and travel schedules. Very friendly, qualified men. China is pretty overwhelming for us and we couldn't have done it without him. Thank you very much!

          Experience of a Lifetime: Private 2-day Great Wall Tour
          Booked a private 2-day tour from Gubeikou to Jinshanling for Day 1 and Jinshanling to Simatai West for Day 2. Our tour guide Jack was outstanding. He shared his passion and extensive knowledge of the history of the Great Wall. He was the consummate professional, making sure that we were well care for. Our driver was excellent--prompt and professional. Sissi, the trip advisor and coordinator, made the process simple and seamless. The hike was strenuous and challenging, even for experienced hikers like us. Bring good boots and any supplies (e.g. first aid, etc.) for the hike. It was an experience of a lifetime!

          Huanghuacheng Great Wall & Eastern Qing Tombs Tour - Awesome!
          I took a private tour (my English speaking Guide David, the driver and me) to climb the Huanghuachneng portion of the Great Wall. David was an excellent guide who spoke very good English. The entire experience was awesome. Because this is about 2 hours outside Beijing, its less crowded and since we were relatively early, there were few people on the wall. I spent about 1.5 hours on the wall because I climbed up the wall for about 45 minutes and the same amount of time to return. Climbing the wall is not for everyone because the steps are 16 to 18 inches high, while some are shorter. I was able to do it, but most visitors don’t go far and simply take a lot of pictures. Nevertheless, no matter how you experience the Great Wall, it’s a once in a lifetime experience and recommend it to all to do. We also visited the Eastern Qing tombs and found that to be a rewarding experience. I would recommend taking this most memorable tour.

          Fantastic Company - Highly Recommended
          Our group of 16 used Tour Beijing on three occasions on our recent visit to Beijing. Firstly a private transfers from the airport to our hotel in central Beijing. We encountered major issues getting through immigration (over 5 hours but that's another story!) but Jackie our English speaking guide was still waiting for us in arrivals which was a huge relief after the stress of immigration. On Day 2, Jackie was at our hotel at 7.00AM to take us on our whole day tour of the great wall - two parts, the Badaling and Mutianyu Sections - what a fantastic trip and I can't praise Jackie highly enough, an absolute gentleman with a wealth of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble for him. On Day 3 we had booked a coach without a guide to take us directly from our hotel to Tianjin International Cruise port. Again the bus was there waiting for us at the agreed time and the Chinese driver who, despite not speaking any English, was absolutely fantastic, driving safely and giving us a comfort break half way. I cannot praise Tour Beijing highly enough, from the seamless booking through Vivian in their Beijing office to the delivery of our trips FANTASTIC! Outstanding service from a travel agency I highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.
