The 1 day group tour to the Badaling Great Wall and Summer Palace was a value tour for the money. All of these 2 attractions are far from my hotel in Wangfujing area and not convenient for the traffic. The tour guide Rocky's English is very good and I think he had live in the outbound for many years. We like to talk with him also the other guests.

The tour was fantastic. I will definitely recommend it to my colleagues that will visit Beijing. Thank you for everything!

We booked the Great Wall and Forbidden City bus tour first, but our tour date is Monday and the Forbidden City will not open. So we had no choice and changed to Great Wall and Summer Palace bus tour. This tour was cheaper and it never let us down. The Summer Palace is also worth visiting imperial palace. We enjoyed the tour very much.

The Badaling Great Wall and Summer Palace bus tour is one of the bus tours I found on the website. These 2 places were the places I most want to visit and this tour was also the cheapest one I found. I was a little worried first but the tour service was really good during the tour day. Highly recommend this tour to tourists who want to take the group tour.

As I really wanted to visit Badaling Great Wall with Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. To my surprised that day is Monday, and it is not open, so I have to change my idea to visit Summer Palace instead of Forbidden City. Luckily, the Summer Palace was very amazing. The most attraction I really need to see is Badaling Great Wall was brilliant, even if so many travelers there, it was really nice place for relaxing.

The tour was very great. Only 30USD per person that I could join whole day trip, include hotel transfer, entrance ticket, transportation, English tour guide and a very delicious lunch. Wow, it was really deserve you to take it! I would definitely recommend this tour as a must see day trip! Your company was very excellent!

We enjoyed the Great Wall tour very much. We visited Badaling Great Wall and Summer Palace 2 sightseeing places also the jade factory and pearl souvenir shops. Not very interested in the jade but we bought something in the pearl shop. We liked the Chinese lunch in the tour very much. Our tour guide Linda was very nice and helpful.

I was very interested in the China Great Wall and Summer Palace. I visit them last week. It was winter in Beijing now so there were not many green plants there. But you will also feel and see the great and Chinese character buildings there. I also knew much culture about the buildings from Leo(our tour guide). And I hope I will also have chance to visit there in summer next year.

Written by: Leandro Antenor ★★★★★ Added: 2017-07-12

The winter in Beijing was really cold and we got sick when we arrived at Beijing. So tourists need to pack warm clothes in winter visit there. We postpone our tour without any extra fee and it made us happy. The Great Wall of China was really amazing and great work. The Summer Palace was also beautiful. We saw the beautiful picture of the Summer Palace before in summer, so I hope I also have chance to visit there next time in summer.

I was getting up very earlier, my tour guide Lee, picked me from my hotel at 07:20am on time. Then we started our day trip with other guests. Totally we had 12 in a group and stayed in a coach. This tour was arranged very well. On my way back to hotel, I had a short quick pass in bus to see Olympic Stadium. It was very unique sightseeing. I took few pictures there. Excellent!

First it was really a pity that on that day was Monday and I had no idea about every Monday Forbidden City is closed. I thought I might no chance to visit Badaling Great Wall with city scenery. As my trip advisor suggested me to visit Badaling and Summer Palace, also they had bus tour on that day, and total 5 guests in one group. This tour was not what I need, but it was really great, as Summer Palace was a very nice park and very huge. T thought I was really worth to take a short. Thank you for your help.

I want to say thank you to my tour guide Leo for the tour. My mother can’t walk too much and I brought the wheelchair for her during the tour. Leo really helped me a lot about this. He helped us get on the Great Wall and give us more help all the way. He is really a good guy. About the tour, we also enjoyed it very much!

Written by: James Olson ★★★★★ Added: 2014-06-15

I wanted to take the Great Wall and Forbidden City first, but it was Monday on my tour date and the private tour is too much for me, so the tour operator recommended me the Badaling Great Wall, Summer Palace Bus Tour. Lisa told me the Summer Palace is also a famous imperial garden. I had no choice so I took this tour even though it is a little pity I though first. But the tour is really amazing and Summer Palace is unexpected. The imperial style architecture and beautiful natural scenery is awesome. Thanks to Lisa and I never regret taking this tour.

Never thought highly of the Great Wall before but this trip really changed all that. The wall itself is as impressive as it could be and what really made it so special is the wall was built on steep mountains. The snaking wall is perfect for hiking and the experience is incredible too.

The Summer Palace is also my favorite sight and I did enjoy the visit to the garden to its fullest. The garden is beautifully landscaped and I had a fabulous stroll through the ground. Very impressive.

Overall, the day-trip really completed my trip to Beijing and I really enjoyed every minute of it!

It was really a wonderful that I had in Beijing. I enjoyed an incredible walk on the Great Wall at Badaling and relaxed myself with a stroll in the Summer Palace too. I really enjoyed every minute of it and had a lot of fun. Our tour guide was fantastic and very funny. I just would not have had so much fun without her on that trip!

Written by: Marcos Vidal ★★★★☆ Added: 2014-02-26

I really had a great walk that day and had fun too. It was just incredible to walk on the Great Wall and take in the fresh air and enjoy outdoors outside Beijing. The Summer Palace was lovely and beautiful too. The stroll I did there was just fantastic! Would not have it any other way! Marcos Vidal

It is well worth taking this tour as it gave us a great overview of Badaling and Summer Palace. Unfortunately it was terrible weather when we attended however we still really enjoyed the tour! The guide was fantastic and answered all of our questions. Would definitely recommend the tour to everyone who want visit Beijing!

Written by: Marcell ★★★★★ Added: 2013-05-10
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of it. It was kind of short but we've seen two represented historical sites in Beijing in only one day such as, Badaling Great Wall and Summer Palace. Besides the attractions, our guide was also very informative and friendly. She even answered all our questions with a smile. She is also really knows and loves her city. I would recommend this excursion.

It is said the Summer Palace is most beautiful in summer, but in my sight it is still beautiful in winter. Less trees and plants make it more solemn, and I enjoyed its stories very much. They are mostly about the Dowager Cixi who is a famous female in Chinese history. It is said many people in China thought she destroyed the China in Qing Dynasty, but I thought she has ability no matter what she did.

Choosing this one day bus tour to visit the Great Wall at Badaling and Summer Palace was the most interesting choice. Even it was winter, the Badaling Great Wall was still crowded as the cold wind cannot stopped the passion of visitors. And the Summer Palace was the flourishing place for local people to skating. Wonderful day!

Written by: Armstrong ★★★★★ Added: 2013-01-05

As one of the most famous world wonder, the Great Wall was the main destination of this Beijing trip. Maybe the reason of weather, the Great Wall at Badaling was not crowded as the TV described. It met all my expectations, is the excellent architectural skill of Chinese nation. Once standing on the Wall, it is a truly a landmark of China, so you cannot visit China but not visit the Great Wall.

Written by: Kelly ★★★★★ Added: 2012-10-26

Great trip in Beijing! It was an autumn day, I was full of enthusiasm to enjoy the majestic Great Wall at Badaling. The whole body of the Wall was surrounded by the colorful leaves, seemed like a shy girl. It is said the Great Wall at Badaling is one of the most beautiful places in Beijing to enjoy the autumn red leaves. I thought I was lucky.

Written by: Cedric ★★★★★ Added: 2012-07-15

How nice day! We spent half day to have a stimulating tour to the Great Wall at Badaling, and the other half day to enjoy the beautiful leisure park in Summer Palace. Owing to this seasoned local travel agency and the interesting tour guide, we had a memorable experience in this Beijing bus tour. Thank you very much!

Written by: Taylor ★★★★★ Added: 2012-05-28

How brilliant place to visit for Summer Palace. Tour guide leave us 3 hours for a relaxed visit. The Tower of Buddhist Incense has lovely views of lake and the city beyond. Then, Badaling Great Wall, seeing one of the 7 wonders of the world is an awesome experience. Perhaps due to a nice day, the Great Wall was packed with tourists. The construction of the wall amazed me, it is immense. For me, this was a highlight of our Beijing tour, truly spectacular!

Written by: Jebbriel ★★★★★ Added: 2012-03-22
I'd like to say that I really have a wonderful trip to Badaling Great Wall and the Summer Palace. It is so crowed seems like there is some festival going on everywhere in Beijing attractions. Like a serpent trough the mountain, Badaling is the most "touristy" section of the Great Wall. Restored, it is walkable but steep at some places. I like Summer Palace very much. Although just visited tiny portion of it, I was indulging in them. The combination of natural beauty and artistic expression in the walkways and courtyards and railings provide for a very tranquil yet stimulating experience!

This was a very memorable tour. The pick up is on time and everything was well coordinated. Our tour guide Linda was excellent and accommodating. She told us a lot about many interesting stories of the historical sights. The great wall and summer palace were really worth to visit! I strongly recommend them. Thanks.
