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.

This was a great trip. Our guide, Leon, did a great job keeping us informed and together. Although our group signed up for Badaling, it was too crowded and the bus couldn't get through so we had to go to another part of the wall. I'm just thankful we were able to get on the wall at all. Leon had the foresight to get us there hook or crook! Thank you Leon for a good tour experience!

Perfect Tour
