Best tour guide ever!! Ronner explained all the details of the city, the Great Wall, and the Summer Palace to us. He was so helpful to consider our requests, and we got to change the original program a little bit. When went to eat authentic Peking Duck, which was probably the best we've ever had in our life. If I ever come back here, I'd definitely book with this company again.…

Travelling from London to Beijing, with a 7 hour 55 minute layover before our next flight to Manila, we researched what we could do with all that time and made contact with ChinaToursNet to see if we had enough time to do the private layover tour to Mutianyu. The team were really helpful and reassuring that we would have enough time for this and gave us really detailed instructions for where to go and what to do when we landed to get our fingerprints scanned, apply for the temporary 24 hour transit without visa and how to get to the location in the airport that our guide would meet us at. In the weeks before we went, we saw the news of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan and in the days running up to our trip, news that the authorities were closing down many popular public places as a precaution during the New Year period and we were worried this would affect our ability to leave the airport and see Mutianyu. We did not need to worry! Although Mutianyu was closed, we are so grateful that our guide, Jenny, made alternative arrangements for us to see the Huanghuacheng section of the wall instead! It was an unusual but unique opportunity to experience seeing part of the Great Wall of China in these circumstances. There were maybe 30-40 other people on top of the ramparts for the hour that we were up there; this involved a little bit of a steep hike but it was exactly what we needed after sitting on a plane for 10 and a half hours!! We saw lots of elderly people making the trip back down with a walking stick, it’s just a little bit steep and steps are broken rocks in some places but I think would be okay for someone with reasonable mobility. Everything was very quiet and peaceful so we were able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings with the frozen lake, the low sun in the sky, and everything about our journey from the moment we left the aeroplane to meeting Jenny, being taken to Huanghuacheng, exploring and returning went smoothly. Thank you for the snacks too!!! :) Thank you so much for making this possible even under the circumstances and I hope this information helps any other travellers going soon or who are considering a private tour - we are very grateful and appreciative that this could happen at all, so for it to feel so special was a bonus.…

I booked this tour last minute and was immediately contacted saying they were able to accommodate us. Linda was our tour guide and she was GREAT! She was very personable, very knowledgeable with the history of the Great Wall and Water Town, took lots of pictures for us, and finished off the day with a stop for authentic noodles before dropping us off at the train station. I would highly recommend this service and Linda as a guide!…

what a trip! joining the group tour was the best decision i made after travelling solo for business and having a layover in Beijing. made a lot of friends and i didn't get bored for even a minute. The whole arrangement was unique and worth the affordable rate i actually found out about it last minute but they worked through my schedule to make it available in the almost full spot. thanks again and i hope to visit china for an extensive tour with more time…

I honestly can’t say there were any low points on this trip in fact the views and scenery were unreal. Coming back home I feel like I have seen so much in just three days in the Beijing tour. the itinerary arranged included must see tourist spots as well as other smaller non touristy yet incredible places which I would never have gotten to see without this tour. I had always wanted to hike to the Great Wall at Badaling for more than 20 years and the Beijing trip was an absolute adventure that fulfilled my dream. The guide was great and paid such good attention and made sure everything was well taken care of. Cannot recommend this trip highly enough.…
