Miko was our tour guide, and did a great job explaining all about the history & construction of the Great Wall, his English & knowledge are excellent! For the tour itself, I've been to multiple stops along the Great Wall, and Jinshanling is now among my favorites. I would recommend the cable car ride up (which was not included in the tour price, instead of the 30 minute + walk up to the Wall). As my focus was on the Wall itself, Miko worked with us to maximize our time on the Wall. While the night view of Simatai is amazing, there's really not much "walking" permitted at night (and as difficult as walking the wall can be, it's for the best). I will go back to check out Simatai again, during the day, when I can walk & explore this section. Thanks again for a wonderful tour!
