The guide was knowledgeable and funny. The food OK but not much of it. Worth the money. An enjoyable day.

This is a good time to visit as you remove the crowd. A small group (10) makes it easier also to visit the site. Taking the cable car is a must. The provider was professional in explaining this without forcing the participants. The pick up from the hotel is also very helpful as Beijing is big and it’s not easy trying to get directions in English.
Price is right and an OK tour, especially if your first visit to the Wall

There was enough time to spend at the Wall (maybe a little long if you had been there before as I had) and the Ming Tombs. The tomb is a bit underwhelming and involves lots of stairs, but it still was a snapshot of another era in China. Lunch was decent. The stop at the jade store was annoyingly long, especially if you have no interest in purchasing jade. The prices are not cheap, even if you are. There is another stop a tea shop. The tea tasting room was enjoyable and I actually learned a lot, but the prices in the gift shop afterward were shockingly expensive. Our guide was OK, but he spent so much time pushing the jade and tea. I would have appreciated much more time spent on the histories of China, Beijing, the Wall, the tombs, etc. Yes he did talk a little about some of those, but it was largely all about the jade and tea when he talked. But for the price, if you cut the crap pieces out, you are still going to the tombs and Wall for a decent price, so I would recommend it; just bring your headphones.
