Climbing to the second and third towers at the Great Wall of China is no easy feat and you had better be in pretty good shape. The walkway narrows to two people wide, one person going up and one down. The steps are very steep and thankfully there is an iron railing that one can use to help lift yourself from one step to the next. However, just visiting the Great Wall is an fantastic experience so don't miss a chance to see it even if you don't climb those stairs.

Mr Ping is a fantastic driver and guide - funny, kind, friendly and incredibly helpful. A terrific guy with excellent English and a willingness to go the extra mile for his clients. Super double recommended!

Mr. Ping gave me an excellent tour of the Great Wall and the Summer Palace. He was very helpful, giving me anecdotes and history passages along the way to the Wall. He was always reachable per e-mail and phone, and was punctual the morning of the pick up (even if it was Dec.25th and -15C). Highly recommendable at a good price.

Mr. Ping gave us an excellent one day tour for a price of 1000RMB which was reasonable given the excellent personalised service. He gave us helpful advice by email beforehand which enabled us to make a plan that suited us. Picking us up at the airport, he took us straight to the Great Wall at Jinshanling, where he gave us clear instructions about how to complete our intended hike to Simatai. When we lingered too long at the end to enjoy the sunset, he came looking for us with a flashlight. He found us excellent local restaurants for lunch and dinner, and delivered us to our hotel in Beijing right on time. We found him knowledgeable and informative, and we enjoyed his company. Highly recommended for a memorable Great Wall experience.

My wife and I contacted John well in advance of our trip to Beijing to arrange a trip to see the Wall. He was quick with his responses and follow ups and picked us up at our hotel right on time. He was very friendly and had a good deal of information to share with us about the area. He handled buying the passes and took us up to the wall himself and then met up with us later for the trip back.

My wife and I were at the end of a very long trip so we declined John's offer to show us some other sites in Beijing which were part of the tour. On the way back to our hotel he did go out of his way to show us some areas that were visible from the highway.

Really worth the money and a very good experience. If we are ever in Beijing again we will definitely contact John again to show us the rest of the city.
