We booked our tour through Catherine Lu agency Tours. We have just arrived to this amazing city the day before being somewhat tired from a long flight. When we arrived to our hotel we were pleasantly surprised that our tour guide has already contacted the hotel to confirm the time. It was really reassuring. Our tour guide was Lena. She arrived earlier and introduced herself. What can we say. Thank you so so much Lena. It was an absolutely amazing day. Your knowledge of history, culture is superb. One of the best private tours one could have in their lifetime. Everything was superb. We are so impressed and would not hesitate at all to ask her for assistance next time. We had such a great day on the Wall. There is so much to see there. The lunch that she has organised in a local restaurant away from the touristy area was superb and the food was to die for. Thank you again, Lena. We can't praise you enough for your knowledge, organisation and such an amicable personality. Thank you.

We expected a nice private tour to the Great Wall, but this experience was so much more than we had in mind. The day started at 7AM, when we were whisked away in a very comfortable van. Cold water was waiting for us on our drive to the wall. The drive out to the wall included information about Beijing and Justin was very fluent and knowledgeable about the city and its ongoing development. The driver was very smooth and made our trip out to the wall a very safe one. After walking up to the first tower, it became apparent that this was going to be a good day. Justin matched the range of hiking experience our group had, and made sure everyone got safely up. What awaited us were breathtaking views without crowds. We were the only ones on the wall for the first hour of the tour, making photography a breeze. The mystique of the wall was all around us, and we really were able to soak in the history and importance of the wall. Justin was happy to answer any questions, and laid out the history of the wall and its function through the ages. He truly cared that we had a good experience, and got all the little things right that make all the difference. We never felt rushed, and truly enjoyed our experience. In talking to Justin, we got a feel for what it’s like to live in China, and he was happy to answer any questions we had about Chinese culture and history. The long hike gave us views from multiple parts of the wall and plenty of photo opportunities. We met some very nice people along the way, and ended the experience with a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. All the food was excellent, and this tour package is a great value. We’d do it again in a heartbeat, and Justin and the driver really made it an awesome experience.

Really amazing tour of the Great Wall! We were guided to a section of the wall which is not very touristic, where you can fully enjoy the nature around you and the experience itself without crowds. Our guide Justin was great and very experienced having hiked this and other sections of the wall for years. We booked 48 hours before the actual date of the tour and everything went very smoothly. Justin left us a message at the hotel where we were staying to confirm the pick up time and also provided his phone number in case we had any questions. He picked us up at the agreed time and we started our journey. We reached the starting point of the hike after two hours driving. We climbed part of the mountain to reach the East Gate of the Jinshanling section - very easy walk. The hike from the Eastern to the Western Gate took around 3 hours and was truly amazing. It is not too difficult, although it does require some energy, and neither too wild but surely felt very authentic as we were alone through most of the path. Truly recommended!

My husband and I had a wonderful day trip to Jingshanling. Very few tourists in this part of the wall (we didn't see anyone else until the end of our walk as we approached the cable car area). The landscape is stunning. A huge thank you to our guide Nico, who has a graduate degree in history, is very knowledgable, speaks English perfectly, and was a pleasure to spend the day with. I highly recommend him as a guide.

We booked the trip the day before, only a couple of hours before our flight. We received confirmation and a personal text message before we took off. The guide and driver were on time and absolutely lovely. The guide taught us some interesting history on the way but also let us nap on the 3 hour drive. He accompanied us on the walk and made sure we were safe and then took us to a delicious restaurant for lunch. The wall was absolutely breathtaking and the whole experience was perfect. So lucky to have seen the wall during snow.
