We left Beijing early but to be expected with the traffic, first stop and by the time we arrived, a welcome stop at the Jade factory, I know, I had read the reviews and expected the sales pitch but I was pleasantly surprised by the items on offer (sales items at the back of the shop near the coffee bar!) Hubby's credit card took a bashing here with pandora style beads and family ball, a must apparently as we have the perfect family of 4! lol Then off to the WALL, our guide was a character, bubbly and boy could she walk fast, cable car lift up and an hour to walk the wall, as a hiker, I didn't think this would be enough but with all the little steps up and down an hour was plenty and the over priced beer (roughly 8.50) at the wall was dutifully paid as we were knackered and welcomed the final toboggan down! We went off for local lunch and for a scenic tour back down the mountain, a lot of snoring later, we arrived at the Ming Tombs, interesting but once in a lifetime so it ticked the box and we headed back into the city. The Tea Room, I know another sales pitch and a taste of proper Chinese Tea but they were good and Hubby's credit card took another beating. Oh well.... as I sit at home drinking it now whilst reviewing, was it worth it, yes definitely .... Thank you for a memorable day

This was a great tour for the price. We started at the Ming Tomb which was beautiful (short visit, but that’s really all that’s needed); moved along to the jade factory which was very interesting - and given time to shop there as well before having lunch in the adjacent restaurant (lunch was very good and plentiful); then we visited the Great Wall which was fantastic, but be prepared to hike from tower to tower, it’s more exhausting than it’d seem; after wearing us out at the Wall, we finished with a tea ceremony which was very pleasant. Paul was a great tour guide and gave us a lot of information. The only option I’d prefer to have in the future is a tour with no children... being stuck in a van with screaming kids through traffic is also quite exhausting.

Not the best day, but we did get to visit the Great Wall.

Not the best start to the trip. We were not collected from our hotel as arranged. When we contacted our guide he had been given the wrong hotel. Bizarrely when he had contacted the wrong hotel the night before, the hotel had confirmed we were staying there! This resulted in us having to get a two-hour taxi ride to the Jade factory to meet the bus. We completely missed the Ming Tombs. The Jade factory was very expensive and just an opportunity to be exploited. We didn't buy anything. However, the lunch was very nice. We were reimbursed in full for our taxi ride as we had got a receipt (good job as the firm only offered us USD 8 at first!) We continued with the tour to the Great Wall. Our guide Lee was very nice and very informative. Unfortunately the wall was extremely busy at Badaling at the time of our visit. Just bad luck on our part, but the views were amazing! Finally we visited a tea house. Not really a tea house, more a five minute tasting in an upstairs room, then a hard sell for the large shop. Not the best day, but we did get to visit the Great Wall which was the main focus of our day.

Our trip to the great wall was fantastic. Haha is the best tour guide anybody can ask for. The information she gave us was extremely informative and we learned a tremendous amount of new information about their culture. The transport was comfortable , the planning of the day activities was excellent. We enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend this to anybody. But my suggestion would be to make sure you get Haha as the guide and she is excellent and knows the history of the Chinese culture off by heart. A wonderful day out!
