Good Tour with helpful and reliable guide

We had a reliable guide, Yuly. She has full details on the history of the site and really helpful and co-operative in our tour. Only downside are the 2 stores that we were taken to visit, Jade and tea house. Feels awkward with the sales persons following us everywhere. Other than that, tour is great.

Great experience of the Great Wall

Lovely day with nice guide. On time to get in the bus in the morning, Yoyo was very lovely and I had a splendid day - also because the weather was amazing. A bit too much time on the wall would have been good and not sure the Ming Tomb are worth that long stop.

It was a lot of fun, our guide Paul was very patient and excellent. Perfect amount of time at each location, the Ming tomb and Mutianyu Great wall were just spectacular, plenty of time to explore the Great Wall. Make sure you wear comfortable sneakers as it was not an easy trek along the wall, and the lunch was delicious with a range of dishes provided for us, the stops at the Jade factory and Chinese tea house were very interesting too, a trustworthy and well-organized tour, all in all, I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Beijing and the tour was affordably priced!

Was looking forward to this tour but was greatly disappointed. Our Guide Henry was not very enthusiastic and getting information was like pulling teeth. His english was good but he really seemed like he did not want to be there. I would have skipped the ming tomb and spent extra time at the Great wall. The location was fantastic with not many tourists. Lunch was ok.. The added tea shop was nice. I think Henry just need to be able to offer more information and history.

The opportunity to visit the Great Wall at Mutianyu is not to be missed. You even have the option to experience the realistic steps or a more traditional steps and walk along the wall as you desired. The lunch was fine and the tour guide purchased all of our gondola tickets to expedite the process. The small group tour was extensive including visit to a Jade Factory and Tea House and the tour guide was very knowledgable and spoke good English. Note that Ming Tomb requires a lot of stair climbing, but visiting the tomb itself can be skipped. This is a very long tour 12 hours in part because of traffic in and around Beijing.

I booked group tour package to Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs for 2 pax through Viator. We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Nancy, was very knowledgeable and she spoke fluent English, and she was also happy to answer questions about the places we visited, there were several Chinese dishes tea was included in the package, other drinks were paid separately. The Mutianyu section of Great Wall and Ming tomb were impressive, the visit to Jade factory and tea house was especially nice. Overall, I was satisfied with guide and driver service. All round a great day - I highly recommended this tour.
