Great overall tour. Sights were amazing and it's a great part of the wall to see. Jacky was a great and funny tour leader. He told us lots of jokes and historical facts on the way to the site. Things to consider for those booking this tour.
1. You will be taken to 2-3 sites where they'll be trying to sell you things. Things like jade and pottery. It all seemed pretty authentic goods to me but was very expensive.
2. The wall portion is only about 1.5-2 hours of an otherwise 9-hour day. Enough time to see the sights and hike at least some portion of it but just know it's not a HUGE amount of time.
3. Traffic is very bad both ways. Mostly within and around the city proper. Not outside. Just hope you're among the last to be picked up and first to be dropped off :
4. It was great that they didn't harp on tips. I still tipped since it was a great experience.

This was the most exciting day of my trip to Beijing : The day started with our tour guide, Jackie, meeting us in our hotel foyer. From here, we made our way to the emerald factory. I wasn't too keen on making this stop when I initially booked the tour, but I must admit that it was quite enjoyable! It was fascinating to see the artists in action as they carve up the emerald into an array of statues and souvenirs. There was quite a bit of time spent on the tour bus, but thankfully, Jackie kept us entertained with stories about the Pandas, Chinese traditions, family life etc. Next stop was the great wall. WOW! What a remarkable part of the world! We caught the cable car up and looking back over my shoulder as we creeped up to the wall took my breathe away. It is truly spectacular !! We spent about an hour and a half on the wall itself. Although, I could have spent the whole day there! This was my only criticism of the trip - perhaps a little more time on the wall would have been nice. When you get to Mutianyu, you will be given the option top choose between two cable cars companies. Be sure to go with the company that has the option to toboggan down the hill. The toboggan is a whole lot of fun and highly recommended. Although, you also have the option of returning by cable car if you wish. The lunch provided for us was great and the visit to the Cloisonné factory was an interesting. On the way back to Beijing, Jackie stopped off at a tea house. I wasn't aware this was part of our tour, but it was a welcome addition. I would have had no interest to visit the tea house prior to the tour, but I am so glad we had the chance to stopover here. Here, we were ushered into a private room and learnt about the different types of Chinese tea and how to prepare them. The tea was great and our English speaking host was very knowledgable and entertaining. All up, this was a fantastic tour and I highly recommended it !!!
