My lucky day - jsut me, the driver and the tour guide

I was lucky to be the only person doing this tour that day - so we had a VW limo instead a van. Nevertheless, Bob, the tour guide, spent all his attention to me, explaining all details, as for group, off course mor personalized. At the Great Wall I had about 90 minutes for myself. Cable car was out of service, due to strong winds. I decided for the "left part" (more steep) and enjoyed. After Badaling we went for lunch in jade factory (actually I do not like those shopping tours, but they are part of allmost all tours). After that, we visited the chang ming tombs. On the way back we had a stop (I guess also common for all other tours) at a tea house. Because I was alone on the tour, we we a bit ahead the schedule back to hotel, which was not bad, as we saved a lot of time, beeing one person only. All in all a perfect day (considered, that I normally do not go for package tours, but had a private guide in fact).

What a fantastic day! Very good tour guide service!

This was a great tour! Our tour guide Sandy was well informative, approachable and made the tour bus ride between stops pass quickly. The Badaling Great wall and Ming tomb were interesting first stops before our visit to a jade factory where was also had lunch. Without a guide like this, you are missing out on just how big a feat, it was wonderful to see the great wall. Tea shop were informative and good deals were available if you were interested. We would recommend this tour in a heartbeat.

Excellent guide - David. Super nice. Two shopping stops are a joke...

Ridiculous prices at shopping can buy same stuff 70 % cheaper everywhere else. Jade factory was the biggest joke...they tell you about jade for 5 min and then go go quick to our giant store with joke prices and spend there 40 minutes....tea was much nicer as they at least talked a lot about tea....but prices are a joke again.

great experience to walk on the great wall

it was wonderful to see the great wall. it was a perfect day, Sunny no smog so could see for miles around and nenjoy the splendour of the wall.
