Summer Palace and Jingshan Hill Visit
I booked Martin as a driver to the above 2 places and he was really informative and helpful along the way. Also recommended really delicious restaurants for our meals. Highly recommend to book him if you are in a tour here, regardless if it’s to Great Wall or other locations.

24 hour layover in Beijing - Great Wall Visit
We booked Martin, who picked us up at the airport, brought us to the Wall, helped buy tickets and brought us through the shuttle and entrance gate and left us to hike the wall for 3-4 hours. When we returned he drove us back to our airport hotel. The drive was less than 1.5 hours each way. The car was a nice, spacious and clean VW. We were given plenty of water and Martin spoke good English. Overall we were very happy with this transport option and would highly recommend.

Great experience with Martin
I highly recommend this tour. Martin was our driver. He greeted us warmly at our hotel lobby and drove safely to the Great Wall. He helped us purchase tickets for the shuttle bus and cable car and gave us great recommendations. At the end of the tour, he was very accommodating and drove us to a restaurant.

Excellent service to visit the Great wall by Martin
We would highly recommend using this service for your trip to visit the Great Wall. Martin picked us up at our hotel, drove us safely in his air conditioned car to Mutianyu. He walked with us to get our tickets and helped plan our time at the wall, giving us good tips. He helped us purchase our tickets to go up to cable car. Once we were done, he dropped us back to our hotel. Great experience all around. Thanks Martin!

Unforgetable and safe
In transit in Beijing for 24 hours, this activity was tailored to allow me to see the Great Wall of China, have a delicious meal in a typical restaurant and come back, without stress, to the airport to catch my flight to Manila . This package is fully personalized, the guide Mark, took me at my hotel, and left me at the airport on time, according to my needs. Totally safe, the exchanges are informative and it was so nice to enjoy Mark's experience and knowledge. I recommend without hesitation this activity that is worth its weight in gold.

Easy and professional Great Wall trip
We would highly recommend mr wu if you’re looking for a day trip to the wall. Everything was smooth and easy - we didn’t have to wake up too early and we were still almost alone at the wall due to the speedy (but safe!) driving. Mr Wu gave us lots of useful info and then left us to explore in our own time before arranging a lunch at the bottom of the wall.

Excellent day trip with Nancy and Mr. Su
Had a very wonderful experience with my family seeing The Great Wall and Summer Palace. Our tour guide Nancy was incredibly nice and helpful, explaining the history behind everything we saw, taking us to all the best spots, and even took us for a delicious authentic Beijing lunch. Our driver Mr. Su was also incredibly nice and even stopped to get us all a big case of water for the day, which was very necessary considering how hot it can get in the summer. If you're planning on visiting these spots, definitely go with these guys, you will not be disappointed.

Mutianyu Great Wall & Summer Palace
We had an amazing private tour experience on our first family trip to Beijing. Nancy our tour guide was excellent. She gave very insightful and detailed information regarding the historical aspects of both attractions. The modern air conditioned minivan was expertly driven by the driver Mr. Shu. We also asked for authentic Chinese cuisine for Lunch, and were taken to amazing Restaurant with excellent local Beijing style cuisine. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. This was the favorite tour of our trip to China. I highly recommend them.

Excellent service by Ma
Ma came early to our hotel to pick us up for this trip. He was very good at responding to us on WeChat. The trip to the Wall was a bit long, but there was water and the car was clean and the temperature was perfect. Ma asked us to let him know if we had any requests for bathroom breaks or coffee stop. When we got to the Wall he got us our tickets and when we asked about the ski lift, he went with us to buy those. He then walked us to the shuttle bus stop that takes us up to the Wall and waited for us to finish. After we were done with our walk, I texted him that we were coming down and he was waiting for us at the bus stop. Ma is an attentive and friendly driver. He answered any questions for us and gave us lots of recommendations. Definitely recommend him!👍

Great trip
Our driver Martin made us have the best trip to the Great Wall at Mutianyu! He picked us up at our hotel, drive us safely to the entrance of the cable car, bought the tickets for us (except the cable car ticket, not included), took us to a nearby restaurant and then took us back home safe and sound!

James provided a great service.
I and my friend came to Beijing for a business trip. We got a day to spare. James’ service was recommended by my local friend. We requested a half-day Great Wall tour. The service was great. He came to pick us at the hotel lobby on time. He basically handled everything for us including purchasing the tickets and suggesting a route that fits our schedule. The trip was great and we really enjoyed it. I highly recommend it.

3rd time a charm
Marvin from Mark's group "Your Guide and Travel Consultant in Beijing" toured us. It was 3rd time to this section of the wall and a great one. Marvin was an efficient and friendly guide. He was always available and helpful. The lunch was good and the overall price excellent. The wall was like before awe inspiring. A joy to share thos with my daughter and friend, and not have to worry about logistics (because Marvin did all the heavy lifting!!).

Beijing Mutianyu Great Wall Visit
We had a great time with our visit to the wall. Our driver Marvin was also great and very professional. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking to avoid any hassles from tour busses or any other transportation alternatives. Marvin drove us right to where you get tickets for the chair lift/cable car so we didn’t have to take a 40 min shuttle bus there. He was also considerate and made time for us to grab food and cold drinks when we returned from the walk. Highly recommend going in the morning as it was not as busy as the afternoon.
