Once arrive at the The Mutianyu Great Wall, you’ll enjoy a less hurried experience and take time to marvel at this wondrous structure and the surrounding hillsides.

Our tour guide Susan was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. We talked a lot about the tour and many other things. Everything was smooth. Highly recommended.

We had only a few days in Beijing and wanted to see the Great Wall hassle free. Susan was an amazing guide for our day at the wall and summer palace. She gave us tons of interesting historical facts along the way. The pacing was perfect we didn’t feel rushed but still finished right on time. She definitely maximized our day to see the most interesting parts. The car ride was comfortable. Pickup at the hotel was a nice service. Highly recommended on any visit to Beijing.

A colleague and I had a few days R&R after completing a work project and decided to take a tour. I went on TripAdvisor and found this Summer Palace and Great Wall with English speaking guide. We were picked up promptly at 8am by Susan and driver. She had so much knowledge and an excitement to share, I was amazed. She truly went above and beyond anything I expected. Thank you Discover Bejing Tours and Thank you Susan for an unforgettable day.

I booked an 8 -9 hours trip to visit Summer Palace and Mutianyu The Great Wall of China for myself and my husband. I have to say that from start to finish this was an Amazing experience! Once in a lifetime! A day we will treasure it forever. Our guide was Yang and we also had a car driving us from our hotel to all those places and returned back to our hotel. Yang was brilliant, knowledgeable about the history of China (we learned a lot about it), enthusiastic, patient (we were a bit slow),lovely person to be around. She was with us every step of the way and attended all our needs. ( toilets stops, slowing down, information about everything will interests us) and very reassuring. I will definitely recommend this trip and most importantly the guide. We had the most wonderful time! Was tiring but a must of having someone around who speaks the language. We were provided with plenty of water, delicious lunch ( like the locals) and impressive views! On the way up the Wall we took a cable car which was brilliant! We had a lovely weather, 22 to 26 degrees celcius. Yang took lovely pictures for us and I can't thank her enough for her kindness and patience. We wouldn't been able to have these experience without her. We had the hotel in the centre of Beijing however the distance between those two places and back could be within one hour to 2 and half hour drive each way, depending on the traffic. Thank you very much Yang, you and the lovely driver made our day! You made us feel welcome, reassured and very well looked after!
