Everything about this day tour was amazing! Our tour guide Ray was on time, he was highly informative and very patient with us. The pace was relaxed, the coaster was comfortable and Mutianyu was awesome. Probably the best thing about it was our lunch. Most tour meals are only sub-par but we had an excellent meal at an authentic local restaurant and the food was more than enough for our group. Viator reviews definitely got this one right.
Initially we were a bit worried about getting all of this done in one day, but our fears were put at ease from the onset of the day. Lilly, our tour guide called early in the morning to re-confirm pick up time and location and greeted us on time. Our driver was excellent and the vehicle was very comfortable. Along the way Lilly kept us engaged by providing a general history of the areas that we drove through on the way to the great wall. The great wall is simply spectacular and once again Lilly did a great job explaining everything to us. The lunch was probably one of the best meals we had during our entire stay in China.
Even though it was very cold, this was also a blessing in that the lines to the forbidden city and Tiananmen square were very short and also us to take our time and fully enjoy the day.
All in all this was one of the best tours we have taken on Viator and would highly recommend taking the tour with Lilly.
Must Do! Was perfect when only in china for a short amount of time! May was awesome!
An absolutely fantastic choice! Made the reservation a little last-minute, but it worked out brilliantly! The tour company agreed to pick us up at our hotel, although it was outside their usual area. The guide - Joyce - was just great! She was very knowledgeable, and made sure she gave us a great tour. Due to the time of year, most places were virtually 'empty'. Since this was the private tour, we were able to adjust the schedule to fit our preference. Joyce also made sure to accommodate our dietary needs. The tour itself was just an appetizer - can't really get a proper tour of these things in one day. Nevertheless, Joyce came through. The Great Wall and the Forbidden City were simply spectacular! Tiananmen Square was closed due to some bigwigs' gathering, so we had a little extra time. Again - flexibility, and we were able to do a couple of side things that would not have been possible otherwise. All in all, well worth it and highly recommended!!
My wife and I wanted to visit Forbidden City and the Great Wall in a single day, so this tour was perfect. Lisa and the driver were punctual, waiting for us in our hotel lobby early in the morning. She speaks fluent English and is an encyclopedia of facts and dates. We saw and talked about the most important aspects of the sights ie: Tiananmen Sq. and Forbidden City for approx. 2-3 hours, then we headed over to a local restaurant near Mutianyu to have lunch. Lisa ordered for us after making sure we werent allergic to any particular food and everything was delicious and paid for. Then, we went to the Wall, where tickets and lifts were also already purchased. Lisa gave us a little lecture about it, walked with us about 5-6 watch towers and even took pictures. Cant say enough nice things about Lisa and the driver Im glad we chose this private tour.
We had a great day with our guide Linda and driver. Linda was knowledgeable and flexible, adding a last minute stop for us at a cloisonne 'factory' so my 9 year old could see how it is made. Thank you for a great day trip!
This tour was great! That tour guide Lisa was an excellent help, very clear explanation during the tour places, funny and enjoyable. I highly recommended!!
Linda came and picked us up from the hotel together with Mr. Sun the driver, we first went to the square, afterwards to the forbidden city and then lastly the great wall. Linda was great, she explained to us the stories, the history, added a few things on top which was very interesting. I would recommend Linda again and again!
Very informative and wonderful experience.
Without doubt a Bucket List experience!
As guide and tour, Lisa provided an outstanding personal experience for us. She was personable, highly versed in Chinese history, very flexible took us shopping after tour! and for that she deserves special thanks.
We had an amazing day beginning at Tiananmen Square, the opulence of the Forbidden City followed by a private lunch before heading to the majestic views at the Great Wall. No lines or waiting, VIP experience at every location. We rode the Gondola lift up to the summit and the Toboggan down highly recommend.
Lisa is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide recommendable!. We truly enjoyed walking the square and climbing the wall with her. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relief to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment.
The atmosphere is so special that it really felt as though we toured with a friend even posing for selfies w/us. All respect for Lisa who does a great job there a true sample of excellent tour guide!
