    The bullet train ride was very smooth and comfortable in 2nd class and sight seeing was fun. The Porcelain House was unique and worth the stop. We toured the city via taxi which was enjoyable and allowed us to get around quicker. We had experienced Eyes before, but it did not disappoint in the view of the city and beyond. We stopped for lunch at the hotpot in the local mall and it was fantastic. Our guide Lisa was informative about local area and did a great job of making our day enjoyable.

    Great Wall, whichever part you wanted to visit he is the man to go to. We chose to take the cable car up and down and walk the Wall from Mutianyu to Jiankou - it was unbelievable, words just can't express how amazing the whole experience was. The views, the feel of the history in every step and stone. We didn't want to leave, it was so magnificent. We would highly recommend Jonny for whatever part of the wall you want to visit, the difficult for the very fit, or the more gentle parts for the not so fit. He does overnight camping on the wall, whatever you choose to do you will enjoy.

    It's a beautiful section of the Great Wall, with little crowds. Our group was the only one on the wall section, and after the first 15 min we had all spread apart enough that it really felt like you were alone on the Great Wall. There were plenty of bathrooms along the wall (very clean actually). There are vendors setup in some towers with cold drinks to sell you. They never bothered us, and we actually really liked having an ice cold drink. This is a very hilly section of the wall, and was pretty challenging. But the nice part is that the starting point is actually really low to the ground, so you don't have to hike up this big hill to actually make it onto the wall. The hills definitely start after you're on the wall itself, but it was nice to have the access point be really easy.

    Fantastic experience. I just went with myself and my dad and our tour guide, Jimmy. We went pre-pandemic, this is a late review. But when we went it was fantastic. Since it was just our small group it was very personal and we could tailor the day to whatever we wanted to do. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and history.

    If you want visit the Great Wall „off the beaten track“ this is your tour. Both sections (Gubeikou and Jinshanling) that we visited have been almost empty (during the week). Our guide Leo was fantastic, not only as a guide to the wall but as well as photographer bringing his own professional camera (he is also offering special visits to forbidden city with a focus on photography).
    We can really recommend booking your trip with Beijing Walking Tours.

    We had a great day trip to Tianjin. Sunflower Li was very responsive to all our questions and provided Maggie as our tour guide. Maggie was fantastic and took us to all the key sites and we also had a very nice authentic Chinese lunch. We walked across the frozen river which was a neat experience. Seeing all these European styled homes blending with the Chinese homes was very neat. It was a terrific day and I would recommend both Sunflower Li and Maggie for any future trips.

    Leo went far and beyond what was called of him for me on my trip to Beijing. He not only arranged a English speaking driver to take me to the wall but also informed me and answered a multitude of questions I had about Beijing! Even when my questions had nothing to do with what I had paid for! I would highly recommend booking through him because of this alone! He truly made my trip so much easier! Thank you Leo

    We had a perfect day tour out of Beijing at the Terracotta Army in Xi'an. Sunflower Li from Sunflower Tours organized everything with care and detail for my family. Early in the morning, Sunflower picked us from our hotel and helped us going through the Rail Station until we were comfortably accommodated in the train to Xi'an. When we arrived in Xi'an, Kris was waiting us and conducted a fantastic tour to the Terracotta pits, with very knowledgeable info about China, Xi'an and of course, the Terracotta Warriors and its incredible history. It's a must-see if you're planning to visit China. Imagine the effort to build 8.000 warriors with such level of detail and differentiation! You can stare for a long time appreciating so rich details and face expressions. Also known as the Eighth wonder of the world!

    We always dreamed about a visit to the Great Wall but never imagined how good it would actually be. The tour guide spoke english and meet us with a welcome. The hike we took was out of this world, the views from jinshanling were so beautiful its hard to describe with words. Our Tour guide was excellent he was with us all through the hike and taught us about the Great wall and had in-depth knowledge and interesting stories we never heard. A truly fantastic experience we will never forget! Thank you Great Wall Adventure Club!

    We have been knowing Xiaowei for a couple of years now. He is a genuinely lovely and hard working person. He puts his passion into everything he does.

    His Jinshanling tour is wonderful. You get picked up from your home, travel to the wall in a comfortable and clean car and can either choose to walk up to the wall or take the cable car.

    Xiaowei knows the Jinshanling wall very well and has discovered the best photo spots. The golden mountains at sunset are just spectacular and offer a magical surrounding to capture some wonderful memories.

    A group of three of us booked this tour and were the only ones on it, which was awesome. Miko was our guide for the day, and although we've been on some great tours with GREAT tour guides, Miko was the best guide we've ever had. His English was perfect, and from the very beginning of the tour he was honest and hilarious. He entertained us during the drive to the Wall with stories about himself and about China, and the two hours went by super fast. The route we took once we got to the Wall was 10 km and had a lot of stairs, descents, and some slippery areas in trails away from the part of the Wall we had to bypass because it was still being used by the military. I am a terrible hiker, but Miko was patient, slowed down when I needed to and helped me balance during the super slippery areas. Every difficulty of the terrain was worth it, though, because we were the ONLY people on the Wall until the very end of our trip. It was hot and sunny for our trek, so we had incredible views. Lunch was delicious and it was great to have more time to talk with Miko about life in China. He even helped us set up another private tour for our last day in Beijing, which was so appreciated and made our vacation that much better. We couldn't have asked for a better Great Wall experience with a better guide!
