We couldn't be picked up at our hotel since the hotel was a bit out of the city center. The driver and guide met us at the agreed meeting point on time. We were a total of 7 participants on this trip. A nice group of people. We visited the jade factory before The Ming Tombs and lunsj at Mr Yang. We then visted The Great Wall and finished with a tea ceremony in Beijing. The visit to the jade factory and the tea ceremony were interesting, but the main focus was on sale. The lunsj was good. The guide, Andie, did a great job and gave us a lot of interesting information about The Ming Tombs. The highlight was walking on The Great Wall. Great job by driver and guide! This day was the highlight of our stay in Beijing...

Picked up as promised at 8am from hotel. Took several attempts ( 6 or 7 I recall) to contact ChinaTour to organise pick up the night before until I got one of their opertators. I booked a private tour, as I wanted to see as much as possible through the day without waiting for others. The tour lasted until 7pm when I was dropped off at my hotel. A good long day with a guide and driver to myself. Due to the national Chinese holiday the traffic was atrocious (not the tour or the guides fault, so I have not considered that in my scoring). At the Jade factory/shop we hung around there for sometime, while the guide continually looked at her watch. Not sure what she was waiting for as i was long ready to move on as I wasn\'t interested in buying anything. In the end of the tour we stopped at a tea ceremony after which I was taken round the tea shop. When I said I wasn\'t going to buy anything then we left the shop. Guide wasn\'t very good in taking photos, as evident in the attached picture. I had no choice but to delete most from my phone...

This was a very nice tour at a very reasonable price. The Great Wall was incredible. They picked me up at my hotel right on time at 7:30am and there were 5 others on this tour. We decided on the trip to do the new gondola ride to the top. It cost an additional 100 RMB, but it was well worth it. It took you close to the highest point around where you could see forever. You definitely want to do this on a nice day because the view was incredible. We happened to do it on a nice Saturday and there were 1000s of other people there, but it was worth it. We were pretty much on our own on the wall and we had 1 1/2 hours to explore. Probably would have been nice to have a little more time. The traffic getting there was bad, but it was much worse if we'd come later. So you want to get there early. We then went to a Jade factory (didn't buy anything). We had lunch at the Jade Factory, and it was surprisingly good. It was a first class lunch. We then went to Mings Tomb and that was also interesting, but it didn't top the Great Wall. Our Tour guide Jenny did a good job of explaining what everything was there. After that we went to a Tea House and tasted tea's that we could buy. (didn't buy anything). Then they dropped me off at my hotel around 5pm. It was a great day. I highly recommend this company for a quality tour at a very reasonable price. I know they have the stops at the two places to sell you stuff, but that's why they can do it so inexpensively...

I booked on Chinatour.net through online method. Its a great experience with this group. They are very prompt in pick up and drop. The 1 day tour - as first time visitors - was wonderful - our tour guide Katchy was very informative and very good communicator, especially in English which made us very much comfortable. The lunch served was really excellent. We will definitely be using Chinatour in the future! I would highly recommend using this tour group...

The 1 day tour - as first time visitors - was wonderful - our tour guide Maggie was very informative, our tour was 5 people - the perfect size. We were able to move quickly and saw so much on this tour! The tour is also just the right price - we will definitely be using Chinatour in the future!..

This was the perfect tour for me and my eight year old daughter. Our tour guide, Kathy, was extremely knowledgeable and 'kid-friendly', as my daughter asked lots of questions. The dining experience at the Jade Factory was one I'll never forget. From the moment we got picked up from our hotel until we dropped back off, the entire experience was incredible!..

GREAT Tour!!!! we start with the Ming Tombs and then to the Great Wall! Our tour guide, had excellent English and was extremely friendly and willing to answer all questions, and with excellent knowledge. We have booked the Tour over the Internet, at the same evening our Tourguide called me and told me all the important things for the next day! Es war eine super Tour, wir fanden es über das Internet und hatten es am Abend zuvor gebucht und wurden keine Stunde später angerufen das es morgen früh los geht! Die Begleitung und der Fahrer waren super net und sprachen auch perfekt Englisch! Preis-Leistung unschlagbar!!..

We found this tour after trying unsuccessfully to book with another tour company - their website just hung on the confirmation page. Anyhow, this company was much less expensive and we felt we got a great deal for our money. Our guide called us the night before to confirm our reservation and arrived on time the next morning for our tour. We were most interested in seeing the Great Wall, but the Jade Factory and Tea Shops were also interesting and fun. Lunch was fine, our guide spoke English quite well and we were very happy with the whole experience. I would definitely recommend booking this tour to anyone who wants an inexpensive and well run visit to the Great Wall!..

We were impressed by the punctuality as well as the efficiency of communicating on line. We visited the Jade factory, (where we had a lovely lunch), Ming tombs, Great Wall. A great day. At the end of this tour we booked 2 other services with ChinaTour.Net because of their efficiency. We would recommend ChinaTour.Net to all...

This tour was excellent! The guide was knowledgeable and the driver was good. The lunch had lots of tasty carbohydrates, but more proteins (poultry, seafood or meats) would have made it much better. Overall, I highly recommend this tour and ChinaTour.Net...

The Tour was Really Great. our Tour Guide Ms. Suzan took very good care to us, she is young and energetic. We were a small group of only 5 Pax. We visited the Great Wall at BADALING which is a really great Part of it, but walking and going up and down will really make you exhausted, need to be fairly fit. We had Lunch at JADE shop " restaurant" which was Good. Then We visited the MING TOMBS , there were Fantastic. I really enjoyed this tour Very Much. Guide & Driver were both excellent...

Bus Tour for Visiting The Great Wall and Ming Tombs was great. Our guide Jenny spoke excellent English and made the tour quite fun for us. She was extremely helpful and very much cooperating and cared alot.The Great wall was extreme fun with the cold, foggy and rainy weather. SHOULD WEAR SOME GOOD GRIPPED SHOES WHEN RAINY. The bus was very comfortable and drivers driving was very safe and excellent and right on time. Next time i visit beijing or my friends visit i would really recommend them to take this tour. :-)..

Excellent tour it was !! Very well organised and planned. Being a female and travelling alone , I was a little skeptical initially but it all went away once i met our guide Jenny and the other people on the tour.Jenny spoke great english and made the tour quite fun. We went to the great wall in Sept end and I think its the best time to visit. Perfect weather and visibility. I highly recommend booking a tour with ChinaTour !! you wont regret it...
