* A traveler said: "We chose the private tour of the Mutianyu Great Wall. Our English speaking driver was waiting for us outside our hotel when we came down at the agreed upon time (we chose an hour earlier than the standard time they give you.) He drove us to the Wall, bought our tickets for us, showed where to catch the chair lift and showed us where he would be waiting for us when we finished. We was polite and efficient, and we like being able to walk the wall the way we wanted without a being in a large tour group. We met back with our driver at the restaurant at the bottom and had lunch. We were back at our hotel in early afternoon. We chose Mutianyu as it is fairly close to Beijing without being as touristy as Badaling (though Mutianyu is plenty touristy in its own low key way). We are very happy with our experience."

He is the only guide in our China travels to come right up to our hostel instead of making us walk to a bigger hotel for pickup. He provided snacks and water, helped take some photos, and generally provided great conversation and recommendations."
