* A traveler said: "We booked this tour through Viator and had a driver named David. He spoke english almost fluently and had a keen interest for history. He was very service minded and aided us though all practical details we needed and picked us up in the lobby of the hotel. It was interesting to talk to him on the drive to and from the wall, and he was happy to share his knowledge and opinions on things we asked curiously about. |The trip was splendid. To be driven to one place and walk the wall to another and be picked up there was the best way to experience the wall. During this trip you walk on sections that are very well restored and sections that are more natural read: not restored and pretty much in ruins. However no art of the wall was in so bad shape that you needed to be concerned about it. On the contrary it was exciting to experience the wall in different kinds of conditions. You really got the feeling of walking on historic ground. |Both the starting point and the arrival point has been building up ticket offices, cafes etc and are really being upgraded to handle more visitors in the future. |We could not have had a better day on the wall. You need to have some minimum of physical condition to walk the distance. It is not very far, but it takes longer than you think because of all the steep climbs, but it is definitely worth the effort. We didn't find it too hard. In fact we loved it! We had nice weather and brought some picnic stuff with us."

* A traveler said: "I was on a business trip to China and left a couple days early to explore Beijing. I really wanted to see the wild wall, away from the tourists, and am so glad I found this tour. My guide Gerry was outstanding. He met me at my hotel at 7:30am and took care of everything until we returned around 5pm. It was about a 2 hour drive from the city center to the trailhead. Then we had about an hour of a tough trail hike to get to the wall (this was the most strenuous part). The wall was absolutely amazing, towering above a huge valley surrounded by very tall mountains. We spent about 2 hours hiking the wild Jiankou section and saw very few other hikers - it was pretty special to be in such a beautiful place, getting to experience the historic wall first hand and without the crowds. Gerry took me on the Ox Bow section, which was pretty steep, but well worth the view and experience (there is a shortcut to bypass this section for the faint of heart). Once we got to the Mutianyu section, it got pretty crowded, but this was only for about 45 minutes until we got to the cable car to go down. After the hike, Gerry took me to a great restaurant serving local food and it was amazing. This tour was by far the best part of my trip and if I make it back to Beijing, I will definitely do it again. Thanks for an amazing day, Gerry!"

* A traveler said: "Lisa our guide picked us up in our hotel at 8 am and was by far our favorite guide of our whole trip! She really knew how too navigate the cities and train station using cars and taxi services to get it done. THis tour is great for people in Beijing for awhile and want to experience a different city. The bullet train is an experience in it self but we had already done a bullet train so we were old pros. Tianjin is a much nicer city than Beijing and much more laid back and less chaotic. The porcelain house is amazing and we really enjoyed the Tianjin eye. We had lunch at a Hot Pots which my wife really wanted to try and Lisa our guide was more than accommodating. We really had a nice day with Lisa who sat on the train with us and we exchange points about our cultures which is my favorite part of traveling. My suggestion if you book this tour to request Lisa as she is amazing!"
