Tony picked us up right on time at our hotel and provided EXCELLENT service! He showed us exactly where to go and was friendly and helpful and his English was very good! The car was brand new and very comfortable. I would DEFINITELY recommend their services in Beijing and the Great Wall excursion without hesitation.
Visiting the Great Wall of China was an amazing experience!I have nothing but good things to say! If you're a solo traveller and want to experience the Great Wall of China at your own pace then this tour is a good choice. My driver was Xing, he is very kind and friendly. He picked me up at my hotel lobby on time with a sign holding my name. During the drive he offered bottled water and a battery pack to charge my phone, as we arrived he also helped me purchase tickets.
As you are experiencing the Great Wall of China, your driver waits at the bottom for you. Xing was very patient and told me to take my time and that when I was on my back in the shuttle to give him a call so he could turn on the airconditioning in the car early as it was very hot day!
On the car ride back, Xing offered more water, two bananas for me to snack on and also gifted me a Panda plush toy as a gift!
As a solo female traveller who took this tour I really recommend this to everyone!!!
My family joined the Mutianyu great wall tour on 22 May and the driver who took care of us during this trip was Hank Li. He came 30mins before the pick up time and prepared banana and water for us. Along the way, he explained to us some sights and gave us some recommendations as well. Also, he was very patient as he waited 30minutes for us to have our lunch after the agreed pick up time from Great Wall. All in all, the tour was great and most importantly, comfortable.
Amazing tour! We went October 2017 - Jack the tour guide picked us up from our hotel and provided some snacks and a drink. Took us up to the Great Wall and helped us get tickets and gave us some tips etc. There was lots of traffic there and back but Jack did everything he could to make sure we could have the full day at the wall. I would highly recommend this to anyone and I would like to thank Jack for giving us such an amazing day!
This tour was great! Our driver was so nice and picked us up early enough to get us to the wall when almost no one was there which was great for photos. He had snacks and water available and helped us out purchasing tickets and letting us know which ones where which! He then tooks us to the airport.
Jack was a wonderful guide and I highly recommend him! He was very friendly, the car he picked us up in was very comfortable, and he provided snacks and drinks and wifi during the ride. He also helped us buy tickets at the wall and patiently waited to allow us to take our time and enjoy the sights. If I return to China, I would definitely book a tour with him again!
My driver Jack was really wonderful to spend time with for the day. He was knowledgable of course and had a great vehicle for us to ride in. It was a one person tour just me, picked me up early at the hotel near the airport for a quick journey to this part of the wall. Absolutely 100 recommend this wall visit for a short trip and Jack is super. I would do this again with my wife if we go back.
Jack was such a great help and guide. My husband and I went to China for our honeymoon and wanted to see the Great Wall. I picked this experience because it was flexible with timing. Jack picked us up from our hotel with snacks and water for us. He was a great driver even with all the traffic. He showed us a great video on the history of the Great Wall. He also gave us a dinner recommendation by our hotel on our way home. He gave us a lot of great info about Beijing and was a joy to have. I highly recommend.
In short: Taking this tour with Jack Wang was the best part of my two week vacation. If you want easy booking, clear meeting instructions, a pleasant and safe ride, a kind tour guide, and a once in a lifetime experience, book this tour.
I wanted an early start to my day to beat the heat and the crowds and Jack agreed to pick me up at my hotel at a very early hour. He had water, snacks, and wifi, and was an extremely safe driver. He told me right from the start that because of some recent storms, the government had closed some of the wall access points but that he was communicating with a local guide and we would still try. We headed out to Mutianyu which unfortunately was closed this is very rare as I understand. Jack was very communicative with me, called his local contacts, and we went instead to another Wall access point in a town nearby. Because I was a solo traveler, Jack not only showed me the way to get up to the wall from the road, but he lent me an umbrella as a walking stick because the paths were slick and hiked up to the start with me for my safety. Really cannot stress enough how kind and helpful Jack was especially to a solo female traveler who could not speak Chinese. While my day was a bit unexpected because of the closure, I'm sure the regular tour is just as special and that Jack makes sure you know where to go.
After I finished exploring the wall, Jack brought me to the Ming Tombs and Sacred Way, both times helping me buy the correct ticket and showing me where to enter and what I should make sure to see. I even requested on our way back into Beijing that he drop me at another location besides my hotel and he not only did so but suggested a hutong and park to explore and made sure I was headed the right way.
Again, I had the best day thanks to Jack. I felt safe and clear about where we were going and there were no tourist traps or stops that I did not request. Go on a day trip with Jack - you won't regret it!
