We would highly recommend this tour. Our guide Roy was friendly, funny and knowledgable. The scenery is breathtaking, especially the first unrestored part of the wall where you can see the wall in its natural beauty and where you can avoid the crowds before meeting up with the restored part of the wall which is also spectacular. I also recommend the cable car and toboggan which was a lot of fun. The lunch was also fantastic local Chinese food. Very tasty. Fantastic day all round.

We had a wonderful day with Jimmy and your driver. They took excellent care of us. Jimmy is great. It was a difficult hike for everyone initially, but he kept our spirits up and was very professional. He was particularly good with my wife who had the most difficult time of the group. Lunch afterwards was excellent. In the time we've been in China, that was our best meal by far. The whole experience just had this authenticness to it. Never done anything like it before and will never forget it. Very happy. Very satisfied.
