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

In general the tour was okay, the tour guide friendly and the stop at the Great Wall was great. The visit at the tea shop with the tea ceremony and the visit at jade factory were mainly intended for shopping purposes, just that you know. The reason why I rate the tour with only two points is that the stop at the Ming Tombs was cancelled spontaneously at the day of the tour. I would not have booked this specific tour if I had known before. Of course I cannot judge if this happens regularly, but I was very disappointed...

Appalling experience. We booked a full day at the Great Wall but we were put on a split tour visit in error. China Tour rebooked the trip for the following day but due to an administrative error the tour operator failed to turn up. It was our last day in Beijing and we had to book a private taxi to take us to the Great Wall. A totally incompetent service which caused us a lot of stress. We did receive a full refund and apology but no compensation for the additional expense of making alternative arrangements at no notice...

The tour guide was on time to pick us up at the hotel. The first stop at the Ming tombs is just a quick stop over and not a tour of the main areas. It felt like we spent more time at the shop than here. We then had "lunch" at 10am. After this we went to the great wall which the majority of the bus wanted to climb but we were told we must take the cable car (seemed like an option on the website but it was not really once we arrived there - this cost 140 Yuan per person) waited in line for 1 hour and 20 mins. They dropped us off where ever we wanted on the way home which was good cause we went shopping afterwards. Overall the guide was good but the cable car saga made us feel disappointed with the tour...

The car was very comfortable and a nice surprise, but the driver took some unnecessary risks and we almost had accidents on two occasions. There was no need to drive that way. The "guide" was a nice lady, although she was not a tour guide. She mentioned one or two facts about the Ming tombs, but no explanation or anything related to the wall. That said, the price was very reasonable, so no major complaints...

The tour could not have been better organised, it was excellent. Starting off with a visit to a jade factory, which was really interesting. Then on to the Ming tombs, and as a bonus you were driven through some really attractive countryside, it was a real pleasure to be out of Beijing for one day into the peace and calm of the countryside. After the tombs on to the highlight of the trip, Mutianyu for the Great Wall. First some lunch in a nice buffet style restaurant, and then on to the chair lift. After the wall, first stop was a tea ceremony which was a real treat, and then back to Beijing to visit a silk factory, again well worth the visit. Everything was very well organised, and the guide was simply excellent with a very good level of spoken English...

70 minutes at the Great Wall (additional 140RMB per person to get up by cablecar), 30 minutes at the Ming Toubs (very few explanations by the guide) We started at 7a.m. and returned 7p.m. Only 100 minutes sightseeing. The rest of the day was driving (the small bus was very unconvenient) and shop visiting. The purpose of the trip was to get additional money, more than anything else. I did this kind of trip the third time in my life, and it was the worsed one...

My tour was okay. I wish my tour guide had shared more historical facts and general information about the Great Wall of China...
