This really was a busy weekend in Beijing due to the holiday. Our trip on the train didn't start out well because no seats were available. However, our guide went above and beyond to do whatever it would take to get us something and she eventually succeeded. They picked us up on time at our hotel and dropped us off. It was a worthwhile trip and we had a great lunch also.

We spend another great day with Lily. And we did not make it easy. We changed times, add a friend last minute and gave wrong passport details. Lily sailed through all of these issues and we had a great day. Despite it being freezing. Part of the wall was also closed because of fire risk. But again she had other potions and we could spend great time on the wall. Lunch was perfect and huge. Loved the bullet Train experience. Was my first. Thank you for everything Lily

It was different, but takes to long to get there and back. NO time there to do everything the add says. The guide was very good at her job and fun. Had to take the regular train back, for some reason. Felt like I was cheated out of my money, by that. If you have money to throw away, and a whole day with nothing to do. Then take this trip.
