It was worth to take this guided tour in Beijing. This was not my first time in Beijing, but this was my first guided tour in Beijing. I learnt a lot. Thank yo very much!

Lily was an excellent tour guide, who not only gave us an excellent history lesson on the wall and its history but most importantly, you'll experience the Wall in an uncrowded VIP tour in a group of fewer than 10 people. There are no hidden costs, no pressure to buy anything extra during the trip, and you can choose to pay for any additional transit at the wall such as a Cable Car or hike all the way up to point 20 on your own with the option to sled down in a Toboggan for 100 CNY. Lily will take you up to Gate 6 which is where you'll be coming back down to when you choose to slide down or take the cable car. If hiking a steep hill (its Steep) is not your thing, take the cable car up and down. After you finish, the traditional Chinese lunch in the nearby village is just as spectacular offering the utmost privacy and without a large tourist group. Looking forward to doing another tour with Lily in the near future.

My friend and I were lucky enough to have Lily as our tour guide for our trip to the Great Wall. She was very knowledgeable about different areas of interest and spoke great English. The authentic lunch we had only added to the uniqueness of this opportunity. Lily went out of her way to show us a few places we were interested in Beijing after our tour. She was a fantastic tour guide with a bright personality. Highly recommend!

I encouraged my fiancé to do this tour with me, despite it being winter in Beijing (quite a shock coming from Australia). Coming up to the trip I was worried the weather would be horrible, but was pleasantly surprised with the day being clear, sunny, and a cool -15 degrees. We were picked up by our tour guide and driver to find we were the only 2 on the tour! The car and driver were exceptional as was our tour guide. She was informative, bubbly, a great photographer, spoke English extremely well and went the extra mile showing my fiancé and I to the pearl markets after the tour finished. During the tour we arrived early before the crowds, were given free time to explorer the wall ourselves and rode toboggans back down the mountain after getting the chair lift up. We then had a delicious home cooked lunch at a local families home (which doubles as an AirBnb). Despite the temperature, my fiancé and I actually got quite warm during the walk, so don’t let the temperatures during winter deter you from coming. Once on the wall, if the sun is out, you’ll be warm enough in pants and a T-shirt (we stopped off layers of jumpers but needed the extra layers for the toboggan and when in the shade). Overall this was an incredible trip and I feel very lucky to have had such a joyful, wonderful tour guide.
