very professional. right on time, at your own pace, the place itself is fantastic and very private -i didn't see more than 10 people in the whole walll stations- you can go by foot or cable car once in the great wall.
Great private transit and tour with Jack
victor_k_blanco, 18-01-2020
We had a great experience with this tour company, and Jack as our driver and tour guide. He was early at the hotel for pickup, fluent in English, and had a comfortable minivan with plenty of space. He gave us just the amount of information and guidance we were looking for, while giving us plenty of time to explore the Great Wall on our own. He had great advice for avoiding the crowds and the best views. Would absolutely use this tour company again.

We booked this before we came to china and the experience was easy and stress free! Driver who speaks English waited for us at the hotel lobby on time. She then took us to the great wall, offered us some fruit as snacks on the way there. She brought us the ticket and helped us choose ehich route to go up the wall and came down. She came up with us, took some photos, then went down first so we can take as long as we wanted to explore the wall! Highly recommend this. U do not need a tour guide for Great wall. Just an english speaking driver to help u get to wall and u can just enjoy the rest of ur time there!
Best way to see the Great Wall

The guide picked us up directly from our hotel, he surprised us with fresh fruit and bottled water. He maintained great conversation in English and brought us to the wall promptly. During the drive he showed us an informational video about the Great Wall.

When we arrived at the wall he told us the best ways to get to the top so we could explore the wall on our own, and told us he would meet us at one of the restaurants near the entrance. We took the cable car up, and walked the wall for a few hours and then took the cable car back down to meet our guide, he offered us time to go grab some food, and we did and then he took us directly back to our hotel.
Went very smoothly, just wished the driver would have been nicer.

The pick-up was on time, the car was great (almost new, with air con and seatbelts) and there was a car seat for our toddler (as we requested, no extra charge).
The driver had a special access pass that allowed him to bring us all the was to the cable cars entrance; we didn’t have to take a shuttle, unlike many tourist bus that we saw when we arrived. This saved us some waiting time before getting to the wall, which is very nice.
My only complaint would be that the driver, Kevin, wasn’t sympathetic at all, never smiling, barely answering our questions. I read in some other reviews that he was very kind, so I am afraid that his attitude that day might be due to homophobia, since we are a LGBTQ family (two moms). That feeling tarnished my experience, which was otherwise memorable.
