1 Day Tour : Great Wall and Ming Tombs
Average Rating: 4.37 of 5 (Base on 350 travellers reviews)      Write a Review

This is Angela from Philippines-- me & my friends visited Beijing last March 15-19, 2012. We actually booked 2 tours with ChinaTour.Net.. The last we did was the 1 Day Tour : Great Wall and Ming Tombs.. We picked the wrong date to be at the Wall as the fog was so grand that we didn\'t see anything!! But we really appreciate our driver for his diving skill as he was able to get us in/out of Badaling in one piece despite zero visibility on the road.. Me & my friends, together with our Australian, Finnish & American tour buddies should be disappointed for the fog weather but we still manage to have fun on the wall....

I had the best day with Jenny my tour guide. She picked me up on time from the hotel and explained the day. I couldn't have picked a better day, it was sunny and clear. Jenny spoke english really well and professional at all times. Thank you Jenny. Highly recommended!..

Five of us booked a private tour online right before we left for Beijing. At the beginning, we were not so sure, but it turned out a great and beyond expectation. Our guide, Ray, was very knowledgable, polite, very patient and considerate. We got picked up and dropped off right at our hotel. He took us to Jade Museum which were included in the package. We had a great time and nice memory we would cherish forever. I would highly recommend ChinaTour.Net to anybody which likes a professional tour. Thanks, Ray for your kindness...

I was very satisfied with the tour. If anything, it exceeded my expectations. My guide, Jenny, spoke excellent English, was very knowledgeable and accommodating to my needs. In addition, she was very friendly, and we saw all of the major sites in Beijing. I would recommend this tour without any reservations to my friends or to anyone going to Beijing...

We booked our tour of the Great Wall online and everything went well, with our tour guide Tony contacting us the night before. The whole day was a great experience with no-pressure visits to the Jade & Cloissonne factories and a sumptuous lunch as well as the Ming Tombs visit finally ending up at Dr. Tea for teamaking demonstration. Tony's knowledge was extensive and interesting. A highly recommended value for money tour...

We booked our tour via the internet early evening of 31 March 2010 for 1 April 2010. Immediately we had a response. Later on in the evening our tour guide contacted us with the arrangements. The next morning she was on time to pick us up at our hotel. We toured the Great Wall and Ming tombs. She even took us on a sight tour for free to the Birds Nest staduim. The tour even included lunch with visits to a tea room, jade market and silk factory. At the end of the day she even arranged taxis to take us to our hotel because of peak traffic. Jenny our tour guide was very professional. We had a fantastic time.The tour was also value for money. Would recommend China Tours to other friends...

A very well organised tour to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs. Excellent tour guide, Nicola. Nicola is very knowledgable and has very good English skills. Money well spent and would recommend to others. Airport to hotel pick up service also was great !..

The tour was good but we had quite bad weather, so we didn't see the surroundings of the Ming Tombs or the Great Wall properly (it was really misty and raining). The guide spoke English well and she was very friendly. Because of the bad weather I think that the guide should have told us more about the history, etc. since we didn't have opportunity to enjoy the views. It was interesting to visit jade jewellery museum/shop, one shopping place and silk museum/shop. The lunch was ok. In overall the tour was ok and luckily we had possibility to visit the Great Wall another day when the sun was shining and the sky was clear (amazing view)...

We enjoyed the tour and the food was very good. They were on time picking us up at the train station and on time dropping us off. Our tour guide Wendy did a wonderful job keeping us informed with the historical backgrounds of all the places we\'ve been. Thank you ChinaTour.Net for giving us a good time...

Despite of the company was a little desorganized first, (they didn´t call me the night before since I arrive Beijing very late at night, I called their phone and informed them about my arrival and room number in the hotel, and then they started asking me again the tour I had booked....and a lot of thing I had had in my confirmation e mail...) The tour was excellent , i booked a bus tour , but in the end I was the only one, and a car with a private guide piked me up, for the same price!!that was so nice. With ema, my guide, we have a lot of funn and she explained me everything I wanted to know!!I told her...Thanks to shared my dream with me! heheh! It was very nice I am very happy for that experience!!...

The tour was excellent for so many reasons. My travel partner, Amrita and I booked the tour in the evening before the scheduled date and we immediately got a confirmation. Fantastic!! The tour guide Wendy called us at night and picked us up in the morning as planned. Seeing the great wall for the first time was breath taking. This was the highlight of the tour.

In my 2-day tour spent with her, I learnt about Chinese history more than what I learnt when I was in school :-D She is very well-informed and spoke in English very well. Attached is the photo of our group with Wendy...

We booked the tour in Australia on the net, and we had prompt email confirmations. Tony also "spoke" to me online to discuss aspects of the tour. We received a call the previous night from Eric our guide, and he picked us up promptly the next morning (7:50am). We had a full day, and had more than enough time at the Great Wall and Ming Tombs. Eric was interesting and an excellent guide. We visited the Jade Factory (had a lovely lunch there) and the Silk factory (bought a quilt!). the time in the shopping components were fine. We travelled with two young children (7 year olds) and the guide accommodated them well. Would highly recommend the tour and Chinatour.net...

The tour was great and we had a fantastic day. We were collected from our hotel at about 7.30 am and returned there at about 7.30 pm! We visited not only the wall (where we had plenty of time to walk the whole section) we also visited the Ming Tombs and several shopping outlets. Our guide was very informative, funny and responsive to our needs and requests, with an excellent balance between sightseeing and shopping. It was a definite highlight of our trip and we thoroughly recommend it to anyone who would like a great day at excellent value! Just do it!!..

We had an absolutely fantastic day. We were collected from our hotel, on a 12 seater bus, visited not only the Wall and the Ming Tombs but also some great shopping outlets on the way. There was a very good balance of time spent at the sights and at the shops - we elected to visit one more shop on the way home and our day lasted 12 hours! It was great value. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny and attentive to our needs. We recommend this tour to all - it was fantastic value for money...
