I concur with all of the previous reviews that this is a standout on many levels.
Take the tour through the hotel on a private car with tour guide Lilly.
Robert, one of the managers had a great idea: instead of leaving the hotel at 9:00, have al leisurely breakfast, read the complimentary newspaper and enjoy the solace of the courtyard.
Leave at 11:00, stop if you wish at the silk factory, and tea ceremony ( no one there either) and arrive at the Great Wall around 2:30. Unreal !!! All of the buses are gone, no one on the wall, it was spiritual. Its your tour go when and where you want, just don't follow the crowds.
Robert thanks again you made our trip to Beijing.
Also recommend Bike Beijing also unbelievable way to see the inner city from a bike.
I also want to thank the incredible staff: Ada, Icey, Yolanda, and Coco and many others to make us feel special and your valued guests.
