We joined a tour group in Beijing but wanted our own personalized experience of the Great Wall. One reviewer at Tripadvisor recommended Victor as a guide/driver and we were very pleased. We contacted Victor and described our lifetime dream of experiencing the sunrise at the Great Wall away from the hawkers and hordes of other tourists. Victor arranged for us to stay at a Bed and Breakfast (modest breakfast) so that we could hike up the Great Wall Trail at dawn. It was a beautiful sight, made all the more special upon seeing a prayer flag at the peak. From atop, we can see the other hikers (using binoculars) also hiking the opposite mountain since the village is in a valley traversed by the Great Wall. Afterwards, Victor drove us back to Beijing and took us to Old Beijing, a local restaurant for hearty Peking Duck, rickshaw at Behai Park, and the Lama Temple. Since our tour had only 2 days in Beijing, we were glad to skip out and spend the day with Victor on our own schedule efficiently and enjoyably. Being sisters who don't speak the language or know anyone in Beijing, we felt safe walking unfamiliar streets with Victor but yet be catered to what we wanted to do and see. Our lifetime cream of seeing the Great Wall in solitude and sanctity would not have been realized without Victor. we highly recommend contacting Victor at Chinapeace88@sina.com. You will not regret that you did!
