About
If you have just one day in Beijing, the Great Wall and Forbidden City are definitely the top two in your list of the ultimate things to do. As the world’s largest public square, Tiananmen Square needs to be seen in person to be believed. No visit to Beijing would be complete without a walk through the square, whose historical legacy includes Mao Zedong’s announcement of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949. At the center of Beijing sits the most enduring icon of the city: the Forbidden City. Home to 24 Ming & Qing Dynasty emperors, this is the world’s largest palace complex. The Great Wall is one of China's most iconic sights. Mutianyu Great Wall is the longest fully resorted section of the Great Wall measuring 2.2km with 23 watchtowers. Considered to be the most family-friendly portion of the Wall and the best part of Great Wall for photography, Mutianyun Great Wall is less crowded and has better architecture than other sections with more watchtowers.

The guide (in our case Grace) was a really fun person and knew a lot about the places we chose to visit. She also helped us to pay in the local currency to avoid paying more money for some things that we wanted to purchase. The driver was also really helpful and as one of my friends was feeling cold in his feet, he took him to buy warm socks that would help him. I'd definitely recommend it as they are very economical and fun people to take a trip with.

I don’t even know where to start. So I’ll first say how handsome he is, polite, professional and prompt. He spoke basic English but was a sweetheart and told me where I needed to be on time and was always there was by for me. I felt totally safe and he even gave me a jacket and gloves to make sure I was warm on the wall.

Being fashionably cute was a big mistake, thank goodness I had Sneakers too lol. I would do it all over again, it was a full day but a pleasurable and professional cool experience. I even had to go to the atm to get more cash out and Hou walked me there to make sure I was protected. Go with these people, they do what they advertise.

Thank you for everything.
