I went to the Mutianyu section of Great Wall with this tour, with Emma as our tour guide. It was the highlight of my trip to Beijing.

Mutianyu is a bit further than Badaling, but it's far more quieter and peaceful section of the wall. You will have more time by yourself and your companions for sure.

But what stood out for me was our guide, Emma. She's an amazing guide to the place, who is super enthusiastic about showing the place to you, and equally excited to take really awesome pictures of you. She speaks really good English, almost with a native accent; you will never feel lost with her guidance. She's also very friendly person; I had great chats with her about many things regards to Beijing. I also appreciated her accompanying us to a show that we wanted to catch after the great wall visit, to arrange our tickets.

The food arranged by Emma and her company is quite delicious as well.

All in all, the visit to Mutianyu was the highlight of my trip to Beijing, and I have Emma to thank for that.

For anyone reading this review, I sincerely say, you cannot go wrong with taking this tour. It truly worth money.

This was an amazing tour! I highly recommend visiting this section of the great wall. It was not crowded when we went, and our guide was so knowledgeable and fun. The lunch was delicious, and the rides up and down to and from the wall were so fun! Highly recommend!

Thank's to Emma for the great trip. While we drove to the great wall, she told us a lot of story's. The whole group enjoyed the local meal before the hiking started. Emma went with us along the wall and some more interesting story's.
Also when we drove back to our meeting location, she talked about today's China and the sights we saw at our route.
A big thanks to our always cheerful guide Emma.

Best regards

Our guide Emma was fabulous - full of energy and very informative! The driver really knew what he was doing too.
This tour gave plenty of time to see a lot of the wall, I didn't feel rushed and got to see so much.
I would recommend this tour to others thinking about going to the wall!

Great tour with a guide who was knowledgeable and very fun. Emma knew all the best places to stop and take pictures. Lunch was tasty and everyone had enough to eat. This section of the wall is not as popular as others and on the day we went it was almost a private tour! We took chair lift up and tobbagan down. This is the best route. The wall is impressive and you climb 100's of stairs. Be prepared for sore calves the next day! Overall a real good value for the money.

Emma was our tour guide; she did a wonderful job and we had a great trip. We were a little confused of where to meet up at the beginning, but that was resolved quickly. Tasty lunch and super fun toboggan ride down. So glad we did this adventure

Highly professional, comfortable, and very fun tour! Emma was really helpful, knowledgable, and a great tour guide. We had a GREAT time. Thank you!

P.S. the cable car ride was GREAT and so was the slide rail 😃

P.S.S. - helpful tip if you are a U.S. tourist and are accustomed to toilet paper in bathrooms... sometimes bathrooms throughout beijing don’t have toilet paper. Best to bring a toilet paper roll with you if you want it 😆

This small tour was a group of 15. We met at Dongzhimen subway station at 10a and rode (~1.5 hr) in a mini bus to the Mutianyu section of the wall. Our tour included lunch at a local restaurant with either chicken or vegetarian dishes available. Not the best Chinese food I had during my trip but good enough for energy that you definitely need before hiking the Great Wall. Our guide Emma was excellent in explaining about the wall... which direction was more difficult, what was located at each watchtower, etc. She asked our group who wanted to go with her to the unrestored part of the wall, which I did. I’ll tell you that it is DIFFICULT but definitely worth it! You’ll take plenty of rest breaks which you’ll need bc you’re literally climbing up and down the mountain in some very steep areas. I hike at home and still found this challenging. Take plenty of water! She’s good about keeping safety in mind first and making sure everyone stays together.
After the unrestored portion, there is still time to go and take iconic photos along the restored part. Emma helped me capture some great photos with me in them since I was the only one of the group solo traveling.
At watch tower 6, you have the option of taking the lift up and the tobaggan back down. I highly recommend this bc it’s a time saver (the tour only allows 3 hours at the wall) and it’s a lot of fun! 100 CYN.

Side note... We did this tour on a Tuesday, which Emma said was a great choice. I didn’t know at the time, but apparently on Mondays the forbidden city is closed for maintenance and lots of people go to the wall, then the following day when the city is re-opened, this portion of the wall empties out. So, I really lucked out. Book a Tuesday if you can, not as many people and you can really appreciate the beauty.

Our experience with Emma guiding our Great Wall tour was perfect! She is kind, knowledgeable, warm and entertaining. The meeting place was easy to find (thanks to the detailed directions and photos provided), the tour left on time and the 90 minute drive was interesting because Emma used the time to provide historical facts and background about the Great Wall and China. We have 5 children (ages 5-14) and Emma stayed with us during the tour and helped motivate the younger kids to keep walking when they were tired. She really is a gem! The chairlift up and the toboggan ride down were great- safe and fun for the kids! I highly recommend this tour. It is an excellent value, led by a fantastic guide and with a delicious lunch provided. We loved our time with Emma and can't rate this high enough!
