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.

Tips to your tour guide and driver

Travel Tips:
1. Wear casually and pay attention to the climate in Beijing.
2. The Chinese love fireworks, and before, during and after Chinese New Year, everyone sets off huge quantities of fireworks and firecrackers. Take great care while you are out walking even on busy city-centre streets. If you are tempted into buying fireworks, make absolutely sure you know how to light them.
3. With buses, cars, semis, bicycles and pedestrians moving in every direction, road crossings can be daunting.
