After the Great Wall Marathon we went with our guide Jimmy to the beautiful viewing platform. Jimmy was very helpful, always ready to give information about China in general and a lot of fun. His English was very good and he even spoke a few sentences in Dutch. I'd recommend Jimmy as a guide anytime!
