We had Casper as our guide on this trip and she was extremely knowledgeable and interesting as a guide. The tour itself was really interesting especially the visit to the arts district - I wish this part could have been longer. I could have easily spent the whole day there.

We visted the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall on an Urban Adventures tour. We left early for the wall and to our suprise we were out there with only 4 other people. It was a really magical experience!!!. Our tour guide was Eddie. He was friendly, personable, answered all our questions and was very keen to make sure we had an experience we would never fortget. What more could you ask for!!!

Linda, our guide, was great.
She taught us so much about China, its people, history and culture. We really enjoyed our visit to the Great Wall.
Linda took us there very early in the morning, so that there were virtually no tourists for at least an hour, and we were free to enjoy the landscape and the quite - and take some amazing pictures.
She also took us for an amazing lunch in a local restaurant, where we tried genuinely original Chinese food, which was absolutely delicious!
Overall a great experience!

My friend and I booked this trip to the great wall, and as we were the only ones to book for that day we were given a private tour which was great. This trip starts early (at 6.30am) but the early morning is definitely worth it, as we were able to get to the wall before most other tours and so were able to have lots of photos on the wall before everyone else arrived. The part of the wall that we visited (Mutianyu) was easy enough to walk, and most of it would be easy enough for an older/less fit person to walk. The views from this part of the wall are spectacular, and you are able to see part of the unrestored wall from this restored section. Our tour guide Linda was fantastic, she was by far the best guide we had whilst in China. Her English was very good, and her friendly, enthusiastic manner, ability to answer all our questions about the wall, as well as about general life in China was great. Linda took us up to the wall, walked part of the way with us, took some photos for us, and then left us to explore for around 3 hours. We then went and had a nice traditional lunch in a cafe in the countryside. The only suggestion I would make is for this tour to include the price of the soft drink at lunch, it feels a bit stingy to not include it. We were then taken back to Beijing where we had a relaxing foot and shoulder massage which was a perfect way to end a fantastic day! I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough.

Ni Hao BUA!

We may took the longest path of Great Wall from Beijing than others Great Wall sites. and its doesn't matter about 2 hours or more. Its was Amazing Views of Jianshanling Great Wall - shown difference of province to Hebei, or to another country of Mongolia has paid all the journey. Its may about one to two hours walk to the top, enjoyed the oldiest memories and shares the stories of the natures with peoples during the walk.
Linda' whose guided us so friendly and kindly shares about the history again and again in order, we remember of the history of China instead of just Great Wall - Jianshanling.

Thank you China!
Thank you Great Wall!
Thank you Universe....
Let's keep History Beautiful!!
