Our guide Tracy was awesome, from the moment she collected us from our hotel she shared her knowledge and personal experiences of all the sites on the way to the Summer Palace and the the Great Wall. We had audio aids for the walk around the Summer Palace, which made it easy to hear about all the key features, despite the busy venue. We stopped for a lovely lunch at the foot of the Great Wall and Tracy gave us an excellent history of the Wall before taking us up, also making sure all the party were comfortable as some parts of the wall are steep and difficult to navigate. On our return to Beijing, there was an issue causing the traffic to be even more slow and eventually stopped the traffic. Tracy and her driver came up with a brilliant alternative plan to get us back to the hotel. She took us on an impromptu tour of the Beijing underground. Which was a fantastic and fun bonus. Tracy took us to the door of the hotel to ensure we got there. It was a very professional and impressive and one we would highly recommend.

The tour was well organized, our tour guide was friendly. The knowledge she shared was unfortunately not more than you can easily find on Wikipedia. We can recommend to go to the Mutianyu part of the wall. Even though we had to wait in the queue quite a while on the wall itself it was not too crowded. And no doubt: The Great Wall is an impressive Must-see on your trip to China.

The trip was good, the restaurant that we were taken to could have been better. The quantity was good but the quality was ordinary. With the choice of restaurants available, I thought that our restaurant was underwhelming. But the worst part of the trip was that the driver + guide was at times rude and unaware of the cultural & national sensitivities of the foreign nationals (we all were Non-chinese in the trip). He asked some insensitive & uncomfortable questions to the fellow travelers around race, ethnicity and nationality. It got a bit tense before the fire was doused by the others. The trip was good, the guide was terrible.
