First of all, we have made arrangements with Mr. Leo for the private tours late in December 2017 when we planned to fly to Beijing. Our itinerary was planned out and we paid for the initial $100 deposit for both the Great Wall trip and Forbidden City/Tian’anmen tour, so everything was set. Then our flight got cancelled due to bad weather conditions. Mr. Leo was kind enough to “postpone/reschedule” our tours to a later date (whenever we made it back to Beijing) and use up the deposit we already paid for. Thank you Mr. Leo! We finally made it to Beijing this March 2018 and were very happy with both tours! Mr. Eason was our most dependable driver for our trip to Jinshanling Great Wall. He was very knowledgeable about its history as well as events and happenings in and around Beijing. He gave us a heads up about not flying drones (which was strictly prohibited during the government meetings that was currently taking place at the time) and we didn’t know about that! He even gave us local restaurant recommendations and drove us through “Ghost Street,” a strip of restaurants where most locals go to, on our way back the the hotel. We fell asleep during the drive to and from the Great Wall and he didn’t mind one bit! He even gave us a cell phone to contact him just in case we needed to while at the Great Wall, which came in handy when the Shuttle drivers came to pick us up and we weren’t sure if they were official Great Wall Shuttle drivers. Overall, Mr. Eason made our whole Great Wall experience enjoyable and stress free! Thank you Mr. Eason!

Ich habe für einen (gut) englischsprechenden Fahrer angefragt, der uns vor Ort mit dem Ticketkauf behilflich sein soll. Genau das bekamen wir auch: Wir haben uns schon Wochen vorher eine Abholzeit ausgemacht. Dadurch, dass es unsere erste Chinareise war, haben wir uns natürlich nach dem Fahrer gerichtet. Er sollte am besten wissen, wann man losfährt. Wir haben uns 6:45 Uhr ausgemacht. Am Tag davor bekam ich nochmal eine Mail, in der der Fahrer die Abholzeit bestätigt hat (hat sich auf 6.40 Uhr geändert). Unser Fahrer war Jason und er war überpünktlich. Sein Englisch ist wirklich sehr gut. Wir konnten ihn alles fragen und haben uns richtig lange und gut unterhalten. Bei der Mauer waren wir eine der ersten. Wie versprochen half er uns beim Ticketkauf und hat uns auch sonst alles weitere erklärt. Wir haben die Option mit der Gondel rauf und runter genommen. In der Gondel passen maximal 2 Personen rein. Die Scheiben der Gondeln sind leider schon so milchig, also war die Aussicht dementsprechend. Die Mauer selbst war ein Traum. Hier und da mal ein paar Touristen. Manche gingen in die entgegengesetzte Richtung, manche waren schneller, manche langsamer; wir waren eigentlich so gut wie immer alleine. Wir waren am Tag davor beim Mauerabschnitt "Mutianyu". Auch dort war es schön, bloß war es mit Jinshanling nicht zu vergleichen. Hier war keine Liftstation im Bild, oder Strommasten. Es war einfach nur die Mauer und die Landschaft herum. Jason hat uns erzählt, dass dieser Mauerabschnitt eher selten gewählt wird, weil er so weit weg und etwas teurer ist. Dadurch, dass wir in Mutianyu und Jinshanling waren, kann ich sagen, dass Jinshanling die bessere Wahl war. Eindeutig.

We hired a driver for the day to take our family of 4 to the jinshaling section of the wall. Needless to say it was the highlight of our China trip. Andy was our driver (B package) and he picked us up promptly at the agreed time at the hotel. Andy was a safe and informative driver - who drove us there safely and back. He was a wealth of information and spoke perfect English - gave us some tips and helped us get our tickets and set us on our way. He was then patient and waited for us to return. With little children that section of the wall took 4.5hrs to complete but it was amazing!!! Loved every minute of it! Having a private driver helped to make the trip out there easier as it was a good 2.5 hr drive from Beijing.

Our tour guide was Jason. Jason arrived on time at 6:30AM, and took us in a private car to Jinshanling. Jason was very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable - a true professional. His English is excellent, and he has a great sense of humor. Jason checked in to make sure he understood what we wanted to get out of our experience, and made sure all of our needs were met. We felt liked we gained a friend by the end of our tour. Jason taught us a lot about the history of the Great Wall. He was able to answer answer all of our questions. Jason is also willing to converse and offer his perspectives on Beijing and Chinese culture if you wish to go in this direction. I would definitely recommend this service and Jason specifically. This was a wonderful experience for us.

This was just what we needed and wanted for a daytrip to the Great Wall. We picked the 'medium' english option and our driver was fantastic-answered lots of questions for us on the way up and back, but also gave us time to rest and relax. It was really nice that he had cold waters in the car. He got us to the right spot at JinShanLing, helped us get tickets, and walked us to the entrance and then we hiked (took us about 3 hours) the JinShanLing portion which was SO cool. We saw maybe a half a dozen other people total. The hike was gorgeous-quite hilly up and down but not so strenuous that I was exhausted at the end. I wasn't really sure what to expect but it certainly exceeded my expectations. We had dinner plans but the driver had offered to take us to a local restaurant as well Would highly recommend if you want an independent but relaxed experience. If I'm ever back in Beijing I will use these guys again.
