The tour was nice. Our guide (Mr. Valon) met us at the hotel and waited patiently for all of our members. He was very knowledgeable about the tombs. We were not interested in the multiple shops and sales pitches that were offered throughout the day, as our time was limited. The Great Wall was enjoyable, although the smog did take away from the view. We had an air-conditioned bus and were brought back to our hotel in a timely manner. It was also a reasonable value.
