    Quick and amazing!
    Our flight was delayed getting in and David Li was patiently waiting, ready to whisk us away to the Great Wall. He had water and bananas, taking good care of us as he orchestrated a very quick transport, ATM visit, and ticket purchase for the wall and cable car. We made it back in time for our departure flight and could not be happier with the tour. Now we plan to come back to see more.

    Perfect Great Wall Experience!
    Look no further - If you’re planning on visiting the Great Wall of China DEFINITELY do this! Our driver, David, was SO friendly and accommodating. Communication was so easy before and during the trip. He picked us up from the hotel and since I just landed the night before I expressed I needed to find an ATM to take out local currency for the duration of my stay. He drove me to the closest bank, waited for me and even treated us to some yummy bananas! He gave us some great tips and insight on the Great Wall and helped us purchase the tickets we wanted! All in all, this is the only way to do the Great Wall. Hassle free, kind, deluxe service. I would recommend David to everyone!

    Fantastic Easy Unforgettable Tour
    Our guide David Li met us properly at our hotel with easy communication. The days prior to the tour we were given contact information and our drivers direct line. He went above and beyond for our day trip. We arrived late the day prior and didn’t have time to take out any cash, he made a stop just for us to take out some money on our way! When we arrived at the Great Wall he assisted us in purchasing the tickets! He was able to get us tickets for the open air Chairlift that takes you up the wall and the luge that takes you down, I highly recommend! David was so knowledgeable about all the do’s & dont’s he even helped us find some great coffee, we were in desperate need. Extremely easy communication our entire trip, no pressure to rush back or any additional stops for purchases like bus tours. Highly recommend & Great Value!

    Great guide!
    This is perfect if you want to see only what you want! This driver was excellent and took us to the great wall, recommended which way and which tickets to buy, so we had a great time with this. Then he took us to the Summer Palace, and to other places we asked. Great communication with driver through wechat and also with the tour owner. The driver gets extra points, because my daughter left her sunglasses in the car and he returned them the next day! I would definitely recommend this tour!

    Great trip to the Great Wall!
    Our driver, Jack, was right on time and catered to our needs. He was super friendly and was not upset at all when we came back down a little later than expected due to the long wait for the toboggan ride. Highly recommend this over taking a bus. Very relaxing and had a great experience at the Great Wall.

    Wonderful Private tour great Wall,heaven temple and Tienanmen square
    I can highly recommend Jack and this company.we had only 15 hours for the transfer for our next flight, but it was enough to visit the great wall, the heaven temple and the Tiananmen Square. They are very professional. Wonderful car. Punctual. Driver very safe and helpful. He has basic English but enough to explaine us the needed things. He did also for us all the tickets for the great Wall. Free Water and fruit, we enjoyed Beijing and the Chinese culture. Thank you very much! I would like to chose again this company! Regards, Salvatore

    Great Wall trip
    What a great trip. We had an overnight layover in Beijing and decided to try seeing the Great Wall. We were picked up promptly by our driver Sam who was very nice and very helpful. He showed us where to go and helped us with our timing to get to our flight. He was there right on time after the Wall to take us back and got us back to the hotel in plenty of time. He was very pleasant to ride with and the car was comfortable. We would definitely recommend Sam and the tour company.

    Excellent and patient service
    I highly recommend this service!! Upon booking, manager and coordinator Jack Wang, was very responsive and worked through all the details prior to the trip. We communicated through WeChat in English and he let me know who was assigned as the driver along with the car type and license plate number the night before. The day of the transfer, Mr. Sam Li arrived 5 minutes before scheduled. He made the visit to Mutianyu Great Wall extremely smooth and easy as I was traveling with my elderly parents, who are not as mobile and are slower moving. Mr Li was an excellent and safe driver and was very patient, helping my parents in and out of the car, up and down stairs. He showed us where to get the Cable car tickets and escorted us to the shuttle bus that’s took us to the cable car entrance. He even had bananas and water for us to take along! After coming down the Wall, he took us to the Chinese restaurant inside the Wall’s Park and recommended the dishes to get that are more well known. (Get the dumplings!) Then after lunch, he took us to a roadside market to buy local fruits and chestnuts - which my parents very much enjoyed. Throughout the day, I was able to communicate with him through WeChat (there is an English translation option in the app so he can write in Chinese and I was able to easily translate) so as always able to find each other. Although his English is basic, you can see Mr Li really wants to help you have an enjoyable time. My parents do speak Mandarin, so they were able to converse and communications was not a problem for us. I had planned a second attraction as part of the transfer, but given my parents’ pace, we ran out of time for another location since the service is for 8 hours. But I didn’t mind at all because we all had a lovely time! Thank you Mr Wang and Mr Li!

    Friendly and professional!
    I had a great experience going to the Great Wall on this tour. My driver Tony Lin was courteous, friendly and helpful. He drove me through the country side to the wall, offering helpful information, gave me instructions about how to best access the most interesting parts and was there to pick me up. For anyone with a layover or who wants to spend a day walking the wall, I would recommend.

    Clean, safe, easy transport to Great Wall of China
    This is perfect for those who want an easy and safe transfer from the airport to the Great Wall. I would suggest that if you have the full day to consider going to the Forbidden City as well (although I'm not sure how much the cost would differ). Car was very clean and nice which was nice considering Beijing airport can be quite overwhelming. Another benefit is that Owen did not take me to any tourist traps or stop at any shops. Owen included banana, oranges and water for breakfast once I entered the car. Owen did not speak English, but with the translator app we were able to have full conversations. He answered every question I had and did a good job having a conversation with me even though I speak zero Chinese. Jack speaks more English I think, but Owen was very nice and pleasant and took very good care of me. I will call Owen next time I am in Beijing :)
