Worth every penny! I met the guide inside the airport, everyone spoke English, were knowledgeable and the car was safe. It was really cold so the guide was ready with free jackets in the event you left your coat on the plane.
You guide yourself up and through the wall but again very safe.I would book another tour with this group.

Fantastic Layover Tour
Jan 2020
A friend and I wanted to make good use of the Layover time in Beijing. I looked on here to find a company and this one popped up. I spent some time communicating with Daniel Yan who was very nice and had good English. Even after we had a loss of communication before we had confirmed the tour (probably my fault), I was able to book the tour just a few weeks before with the same itinerary. We paid a deposit on paypal (50USD) even without a PayPal account and were sent a confirmation email and instructions on how to find our guide on the day.

On the day, we ended up being slightly late (approx 30 mins) to meet our guide Herbie due to being confused by the immigration systems. We messaged the number given to us and met our guide at the location as promised who took us to our car. The car was very nice and clean and the driver seemed friendly and opened the door for me as I got in. There was a bottle of water and a big coat for us both.

We were driven to the car park of the Great Wall and on the way Herbie was very chatty in the car and we asked him questions about where he was from and Chinese culture which he answered very well and showed a good level of English. There us a Subway and toilets located next to the car park

My friend and I thought we would walk up to the Wall which would've taken approximately 30 minutes. In the end, we both decided we were better off taking the chair lift and then the toboggan type slide on the way down - looking back on it, we are so glad we chose to do that. I believe it was an extra 120 Chinese Yuan so approximately £14 or $18 USD each. Herbie paid for us and we paid him back when we got to the airport.

As we arrived when the Wall had just opened, it was so quiet and peaceful going up on the chair lift. Furthermore, as it had snowed, the mountains behind us as we were going up were just beautiful. When we got to the Wall we walked in between the different towers and parts of the wall and going up and down a lot of stairs, which some are extremely steep so we were glad we hadn't walked up. Herbie was a fantastic guide and told us a lot of history about the Wall. Not only was Herbie a great tour guide, he was a great photographer too and took many photos of us and showed us the best locations to take the photos and was not afraid to give us direction for our poses ;).

Before we left to come down, Herbie offered to order us a Subway to pick up when we got down, which was a very kind request. Before you get to the toboggan slide you do get a few locals trying to sell you things, but we walked past and it was fine We then went down the toboggan slide which was a lot of fun and easy to control. They do take a photo of you going down and you can buy this if you want ( we didn't).

We were then driven back to the airport. At the aiport, Herbie helped me to use the cash point (it was in chinese) to withdraw the money that we owed. We managed to get the bus to our terminal and get through security etc on time.

Overall, this was a fantastic tour that was well organised. Our highlights were the gorgeous snowy scenery, walking on the Wall, the friendly tour guide Herbie who was informative and funny, having a private tour with just us 2 at a very early time of the day with practically no one else around.

Worth every penny, and definitely definitely an experience we will both never forget.

Thank you to the company

A great disappointment
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had a layover in Beijing and we decided to take a tour to see the Great Wall. The opportunity to see the Great wall was amazing,but the guide wasn't informative at all. She said like 10 sentences on a bus and when we got there she got us tickets +plus she got us tickets for cable car (extra payment). Then she said come to this spot in 2 hours that was it. So honestly I don't see any reason to include information that there is a professional guide with a group. And I also don't think that price for this tour was reasonable, we paid 85$ each.
The positive thing was that the pick up and the drop off was at the airport.

Fantastic Layover Tour to the Great Wall!
Jan 2020 • Couples
I can’t recommend booking with these guys enough. Everything was made so easy with full directions to get out of the airport and our amazing tour guide Sherry was waiting for us. She was absolutely fantastic and so informative. A great photographer too! She snapped some awesome shots of my partner and I :) Not only was the tour perfect, but she also took us to a local traditional Peking duck restaurant and helped us order, she even paid when they wouldn’t except Visa and let us pay her back after. 10/10. Such a great way to spend a layover!! And they make it so stress free!

My missed opportunity
It’s strange to review something one technically hasn’t gone on, but I must cite at least this excellent hospitality and professionalism of Mr Yan and his team. My sister (who is an Indonesian) had some issue at the immigration so we could not leave PEK airport during our layover (the officer could not reveal much). We were so bummed as we looked forward to this tour after all the sterling reviews (and booking it months when we booked our trip).

Once I emailed Mr Yan about the issue, however, he followed up with a refund—and it was all so expedient without any hassle imposed on us after all the flying and queuing we had to do, no question asked.

Thank you very much for going through all that hassle for us, Mr Yan, and we are sure to recommend anyone who may be keen on such tours. We hope also to join one of your tours soon :)

Fantastic group!
My friend and I had a14 hour layover. Our flight arrived ay 5am and our connecting flight left at 7:40pm. We selected to just see the Great Wall. We drove with 5 other people in a mini van to the Great Wall. There is a short hike to the entrance where you take a ski type lift up the hill to the bottom of the Great Wall. There you climb to the stairs that bring you up on top of the wall. It is unbelievable too finally be there.
The view is stunning and the fall colors are just beautiful.
We found prices quite high for food and souvenirs. What made the tour even better was our guide Lisa! She was full of knowledge and fun to talk to.

The Great Wall
Jul 2019 • Family
Perfect amount of time to get a bit of history in while we waited for the next leg of our journey. Car was comfortable and the scenery was beautiful on the way. Took the ski lift up and the toboggan back down which was fun! We then got to sample local food and shop for gifts. Got back in plenty of time to make our flight. Lisa was a great guide!

Great way to pass some time during layover
Jun 2019 • Solo
With a layover of 20 hours I had plenty of time on my hands that I somehow needed fill with things to do. So this tour was a great option. Annie picked us up from the airport and as all of us were a bit early we were able to leave half an hour early, giving us more time to spend at the great wall. During the trip to the great wall Annie was able to tell us quite a lot about Beijing and the wall itself, given she’s a local. We were dropped off at the entry of the Great Wall after being given a brief introduction on which routes we could walk. Meaning we had the freedom to just roam around for several hours, taking in the scenery and sun while getting a good workout for our legs climbing up all those stairs of the Wall.
Afterwards they were kind enough to drop me off right in front of my transit hotel.
Altogether I would really recommend this trip to anyone who’s interested in a bit of adventure in between flights, but doesn’t want to bother organising everything themselves. I could not have asked for a better guide than Annie and Daniel was really helpful with coordinating everything as well.

Amazing tour with Herbie
Jun 2019 • Family
We booked this trip 2 days before our layover, the company were brilliant in explaining exactly what we needed to do when we arrived in Beijing. Our wonderful guide Herbie was waiting for us. Herbie was brilliant from the offset. His knowledge of the wall was second to none, he took photos for us and explained the history of the wall. This company and especially Herbie offered a 1st class service would 100% recommend. Thank you.
