    My guide Lillian was fantastic. She was friendly, communicative, knowledgeable and informative. She was also considerate and thoughtful.

    The Great Wall of China was amazing and having a private tour guide is definitely the way to go. The day was very hot so keeping well hydrated was very important.

    My girlfriend and I had an amazing trip thanks to our tour guide Leon Tian. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and fun to talk to. I highly recommend Leon as a tour guide!

    I truly enjoyed this tour. Angel led the way again. She is a real trooper. They say you are a Hero if you can climb up to and walk The Great Wall. She does it all the time, so that tells you great she is! I had been to Mutianyu, but I feel like this section was much better. The first half of the wall was in original state and felt more Authentic. The second half had been remodeled. The views were fantastic. It was the perfect day. We only saw maybe 50 people in total. If you are looking for a wall visit that is not super busy like Badaling and some of the others, this is place to go. Be warned though, there are some steep climbs. You're the best Angel!

    Well, planned trip. The time on the Wall was enough to take excellent photos and enjoy the sights. Good feature is the organisers pick up from the hotel. The price is too high in my opinion. I think that tickets for a toboggan and cable railway should be included. The experience was amazing, but the additional costs were not. It was amazing to take part in the traditional ritual of tea making, and also see the craft jewellery-making process. I really recommend this trip.

    This was truly off-the-beaten path and an unforgettable adventure. My mom and I did this tour together with Justin and it was incredibly fun. While there were times when we encountered some obstacles, he confidently led us through and helped us go at our own pace. When we got to the top, the views were unbelievable and Justin even pointed out some popular photo spots. After our hike, we went to a great local restaurant (I recommend you get beer as a beverage). Overall, we had a great time with Justin and would come back again!

    Not to miss trip to see unrestored parts of the Wall, amazing views, very good & friendly guide who clearly knows the way and can navigate this part safely.

    Provided water, walking sticks and a lovely lunch in a local restaurant.

    Car & driver are excellent as well.

    Don’t attempt it alone - need to navigate the woods & avoid closed off & dangerous sections of the wall as local gvt is blocking access.

    What an amazing and awe-inspiring day! The Yellow Flower Great Wall hike with Dom is a day out to remember. We went last week, early April, and the mountains were cloaked in white blossom, making them look almost as if they were covered in a light dusting of snow.

    The hike, which sometimes became a bit of a scramble, was enormous fun and you got a real sense of achievement to reach the top and gaze across the mountain peaks.

    Dom was an excellent guide, very personable and easy-going, yet a real professional. There was never a problem if you wanted to stop to take photos, or for a breather - and we did both plenty of times! Despite the effort required, Dom somehow managed to make the day relaxing, perhaps because there was no rush and we could just do it at our own pace.

    If you want an up close and personal experience on the Great Wall and see it in its natural unrestored splendour, I highly recommend this trip.

    This kind of excursion cannot be done without a person knowing very well the itinerary and also the right persons. It was a great experience for me, I highly recommend.

    We did the Mini Group Tour: Beijing Forbidden City Tour with Great Wall Hiking at Mutianyu with Dan as guide. It was a wunderful day with a very well organized tour, which we enjoyed very much!

    The trip through the forbidden city was a little bit less detailed than I expected but still very nice. You basically just follow the very touristic route straight through the core of the city and the guide will tell some instersting stories or facts about the buildings and artworks.

    The stay at the Great Wall was amazing, we really took a lot of time for a hike along the wall and Dan answered all questions in detail. But keep in mind that you have to pay an extra 15-20 US$ for the caple car. They offer you to walk to the wall but I am not sure if that is really an option because than you would not have a lot of time at the wall itself.

    The only thing which was really bad was the lunch. Dan told us there wouldn't be any good chinese restaurants in Mutianyu so we would have to eat at Burger King. After we ordered at Burer King the WORST meal of our whole trip in Asia, Dan left and came back with some amazing chinese food for herself from a little place just around the corner. We were sitting there asking ourself why she didn't tell us about this place beforehand but nobody explained to us why.

    For future tours: PLEASE give people the choice where to eat lunch! Besides that we had a great day! Thank you again for everything Dan!

    We had a day with private tour guide to visit Temple of Heaven, Tinanmen square and Forbidden City. Our guide Ruby was great, very knowledgeable and thoughtful. We learned a lot about the history. We would highly recommend Jenny’s tours for swift communication and amazing service.

    This is an excellent one-day trip to spend some time in the scenic landscapes outside Beijing. The schedule is well organized so each stop can be appreciated without rush and Jeffrey is an amazing tour guide! Very informative conversations and very willing to even adjust the schedule upon our request. Very comfortable and highly recommended experience!
