Dear Juliet,

Good morning and my family enjoy our tour in Beijing. Under your arrangement, everything was well organized. The meals were very delicious which we all enjoy them especially the one in the hutong. We like the Chinese cuisine. Our tour guide Linda gave a surprise birthday cake for my friends. Certainly we will contact you again for our next tour in China.

We are from USA, it’s our first time have a chance sightseeing in Beijing, China. The first destination is Badaling Great Wall - one of the wonders of world. We really enjoy it. We consulted this tour first, they gave me a professional reply then we booked it online. They picked us up on time in the morning with coach in good condition. Our tour guide Leo explained the history and culture about Great Wall and Changling for us, he is a very nice guy.

There are about 15 people on the bus during our tour date and Emma told me this tour is popular in Beijing. We visit the most famous Great Wall and the Ming(Tomb) only cost US$20/person. So I think this is the reason why this tour is so popular. But the service was also good. Emma was very informative and the driver was professional. We have a good day!

An unforgettable experience, it takes a whole day to explore the Badaling Great Wall and Ming Tomb. The Great Wall is wonderful so much it hurts. The tour group is regularly and the other guys are nice. The driver drive safely between Badaling and the hotel I stay, good driver to be honest.

Dear Beijinglandscapes,

I used Beijing Landscapes as a tour company to see Beijing on 1 day tour. The tour guide spoke English well and contributed hid unique flavor to the tour, all enjoyable. Additionally, the tour company emailed me and left messages at my hotel to inform me of pick-up times. Everything ran smoothly and was convenient for a busy traveler. I highly recommend Beijing Landscapes!

I visited the most famous Wall of Beijing, named Badaling, is very amazing and I climbed up the Wall took cable car down, enjoyed very much. I already recommend my friends about this tour and your company, they are keen to visit next month, and very exciting. On the Wall I met lots of friends from different and talked about this tourist attraction, they are booked with another company and more high price then you offer, next time they will also use your company, cheaper and super service, no matter tour guide or the driver, and I paid tips to excellent tour guide and driver.

Thank you very much for your nice service.

Best regards,

Dear Juliet,

I should have written to you earlier, but I have been very busy after coming home from China.

We had a wonderful trip, everything you organised for us worked 100%, and the guides were full of knowledge, friendly and helpful, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I already told this exciting trip to my family, they are all expecting to visit China, hope have chance to visit there with you next time!

The following is my experience that I want to share with guests from all over the world, it is really amazing one day tour in Beijing I met!

Pick-up from your hotel between 7:00am and 8:30am, and then drive to Ming Tombs (50 miles away from downtown about one hour driving). The thirteen Ming Tombs are the best-preserved Chinese imperial tombs with 500 years history. You will visit Changling, the head and the largest tomb of Ming Tombs, where Emperor Yongle (the first emperor in Beijing) and his Empress Xu were buried. The sightseeing on the Ming Tombs takes about 1 hour. The visit to Ming Tombs finishes at about 10:45. Before having lunch (11:30 am), you will have 45 minutes for a short visit of Jade Carving Factory. The jade carving is a famous special Chinese product, a blend of the excellent skill on carving and Chinese traditional cultures.

Having traditional Chinese lunch at restaurant. After lunch, driving to the Badaling Great Wall. The hike on Badaling Great Wall takes 2 hours. Badaling section is the most famous and best-preserved wall. Its highest point at Badaling is some 800 meters above sea level. Cable car is available and optional. On the way to your hotels, we pass by the Olympic Green, having a distant view of both the National Stadium - the “bird Nest " and National Aquatics Center - the Water Cube, taking pictures in coach. After that, you will have a chance to enjoy the Chinese traditional Silk arts. After the tour, transferred back to your hotels.

Thank you very much again for your service!

Warm regards,

Dear Beijinglandscapes,

Thank you for arranging everything for me for the Great Wall Tour.

I book it online and receive a reply very soon it makes me suprised.

I know everything details in the email and it really make me feel comfortable.

Wendy call me the night and tell me the pick up time for my trip at 07:20am. I wait in the lobby and find Wendy very easily for she wear a red shirt.

The first trip is to the Ming Tomb, the trip to Ming Tomb is really require a tour guide, otherwise I could only see some building and trees. The scene here is beautiful and Wendy tell us many hisotry and culture about the Ming Dynasty. I am very interested in the Ming Shang Cong, I'm not sure about the spelling. Wendy tell me he is the only emperor whom have one wife in whole life in Chinese history.

And then we visit a Jade Carving factory, there are various kinds of jade here. And some of them is very beautiful. I buy a couple of eardrop and cost RMB200, I like them very much.

The lunch is in Chinene food, I like Chinese food. After lunch, we visit the Badaling Great Wall. The Great Wall is magnificent, it is the main target for my tour in Beijing. A place built along the mountain. I walk on it and visit about 2 hours. The weather is hot and I drink many waters.

Then Wendy guide us to the parking place and the driver Lee is wait for us here. When we get on the bus, the air-condition make me feel very comfortable.

On the way back to the hotel, most of us feel tired and want to have some relax and sleep. Wendy make silence in the bus and tell the driver make the temperature higher. I feel well and have a nap.

After we visit a silk factory, there are many silk here such as carpet, handkerchief, sheet, embroidery, clothes. More beautiful and cheaper than in my country.

My tour end at my hotel and I really have a good day. Thank you for all.

With Best Regards

Wow, so meaningful tour that I made a lot of friends on the whole journey. We were just like a big family helping each other on the Badaling Great Wall hiking. I saw the charming sceneries of Badaling Great Wall, fresh and dazzling! Sunlight is very soft offering us a cozy environment!

The tour was well paced and a good way to see Great Wall and Ming Tombs in a few hours. The tour guide was excellent, friendly and helpful. Although it was a bus tour but we got very personally care from the tour guide. She told us, everybody on this tour the details about the tour and guided us well. Everything went smoothly till the end of the day.

Written by: Rosemary ★★★★★ Added: 2013-05-15

The trip was really great! There was enough time to visit and explore the Great Wall and Ming Tombs. Bus tour is also giving us relatively cheap price to explore the Wall, so it is really worth it. A nice trip for discover how beauty and magnificent the Wall with limited time. I totally recommend this trip!

Written by: Jeremy ★★★★★ Added: 2013-05-06

I enjoyed the trip very much. Although in some spots, tour guide might a little bit rush but we did able to see important or major sites in each attraction. The travel guide spoke English well, was helpful and knowledgeable about the different sites. Great Wall is a great and really worth place to explore for anyone who comes to Beijing. Must visit!

Written by: Luis Trenker ★★★★★ Added: 2013-02-15

It is the cheapest way to visit the symbol of Beijing, and it is the rare memorable experience in my life. Really surprise when we arrived the Great Wall at Badaling, it is said that this section is the highest section of the Great Wall. Even though it was cold winter, crowd still was the characteristic of the Great Wall. But you can understand why it is one of the world wonders when you get there. It is huge, it is amazing and it is wonderful! If you visit it without tour guide, the Great Wall Museum is a worth place to enjoy the vivid history and culture of Great Wall. Words cannot describe its spectacular, just experience personally!

Written by: Jackson ★★★★★ Added: 2012-05-24

Excellent tour in Beijing. How incredible to see Badaling Great Wall as the highest part of Great Wall. Perhaps due to summer, it was too crowded. We climb the right side of Great Wall, it was rather steep but a hand-rail. I would love to go again or another part of the Great Wall in next Beijing vacation. Make sure you have a very good walking outfit when visiting this place.

Written by: Alfred ★★★★★ Added: 2012-03-23

I cannot tell you how pleased I am with my experience today. It is a full day traveling to Badaling, Ming Tombs and the Olympic Stadium with a knowledgeable and experienced tour guide with only 20 USD. Climbing to the top of Badaling Great Wall, enjoying the beautiful scenery around, I feel very proud of myself. Also the environment in the Olympic Park is very comfortable with fresher air. Listening to the sing: You and Me, I remembered the incomparable opening ceremony of 2008 Olympics. See you beautiful Beijing! I will come again in the near future.
