We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Beijing Travel Tips & Beijing Weather
1.Most of the city's tourist attractions are historical sites or folklore tour that are not affected by the change of season. Therefore. Tourists can come to Beijing all year round. Weather forecasts are available on major media and through the telephone service.

2.Keeping from Peak Holidays: It is wise to avoid traveling in China during Chinese holidays when it is the time local Chinese are touring around. The most crowded seasons in China are Chinese Spring Festival ( usually in late Jan or early Feb.), International Labor Day ( May 01 to 03 ) and National Day ( Oct 01-07 ). National Holiday is the most crowded time for travelling.
