I LOVED this tour! It was the best thing we did in China. In addition to the Great Wall being an amazing thing to see, Lucy was a fantastic tour guide! She took us to two different parts of the wall - one that wasn't very crowded and one that was totally remote. She took a ton of great photos for us. It was just me, my husband and Lucy. We also had the best meal in China at this small little village. It was TOTALLY worth it to hire a private guide, and Lucy was so knowledgable with strong English.
Visit 2 different sections of the great wall!

First things first, our guide Lucy was incredible! So accommodating, polite, knowledgeable and well prepared!!she stayed with us the whole time, explained everything, answered questions and walked with us. We were driven in a nice private car with a driver.. I cannot recommend her enough!!
We went on a Wednesday mid September 2019 (sunny day, perfect weather) to the Mutianyu part Which is more touristy but with our private tour we had no crowds at all! We got there before all the big tour buses and were leaving at the time everyone else was arriving... Great for 2 tourists that hate hoads of tourist. Thereafter we went to an authentic Chinese restaurant and the food was delicious! After we went to Huanghuacheng Water gate part of the wall Wich had absolutely no tourist at all, we were on our own climbing the very steep part of the wall where you can see the lake and dam that breaks up the wall.. The views are incredible and there is no price for the amazing sights of the original wall with no people and just you there enjoying a nice day and a challenging hike up the highest towers to take the best photos.
If you want to avoid crowds and get a true experience when visiting the wall, I highly recommend this tour, you get the best of both parts and in my opinion is worth every penny!
Ask for Lucy, she is very sweet and helpful and if like me you hate big groups of tourists, this is the only way to actually enjoy the vist to the wall.
A amazing day at the Great Wall of China

This tour was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend it. Our guide David was excellent, he picked us up at the hotel on time, gave us a lot of interesting information about Beijing on the way to the Great Wall, and was always friendly and answered any questions or requests we had. We accessed the first part of the wall by ski lift and went down on the toboggan which we all enjoyed. When walking on the wall, the view was wonderful. We then drove to a local restaurant - the meal was delicious -and walked the second part of the wall after lunch. There were hardly any other people on this section and it was well worth doing too. Just make sure you have good shoes as it is very steep with no steps at times. We'll always have fond memories of our trip to the Great Wall.
