We had a 12hr layover in Beijing and wanted to walk the Great Wall. I messaged Dong the night before, he was quick to reply and was able to pick us up right after we got out of customs and dropped us off with plenty of time to catch our flight home (plus there was time to get lunch on our way back to the airport)! It was an amazing experience, Dong made everything easy, and even brought us jackets because we had no warm clothing. Would definitely recommend.

Booking was easy. Dong's instruction for the meeting place and getting the 24/144 hr visa was accutate and easy to follow. Just be aware that theres a lọt of climbing and hiking ơn this non- touristy part of great wall. Optional food trip was a great experience of local Beijing cuisine. Punctual and courteous Dong made my trip something to remember and would repeat later with my active family.

Dong was an excellent host! During our layover in Beijing, he and his wife made us feel very welcome and were very sweet. We got a chance to tour the Great Wall, go to a local mall, eat local food, and made it back to the airport in time for our departing flight! Thanks so much for your warm hospitality! We would highly recommend booking with Dong!

Such a cool, unique experience - a very private spot on the wall that tourists don't know about! I was able to see the Great Wall in between flights for an eight hour layover. It was super cold and Dong gave me his jacket too!

Dong was very helpful in showing us around. I was travelling with my young 14 month old daughter and he helped me carry her in his arms to climb the great storey steps of the great wall. I don't think I would have been able to make up the great wall without him. he also gave us options on which location to see the great wall the busier location or the not so busy scenic location. My mother had a bad knee and was preferring the lift car to go up the great wall. But he helped her get up the less busy location and it was the better choice thanks to Dong. Dong is also a great photographer. He takes amazing shots of us at the great wall. He also took us to Tinamen square Temple of God and forbidden city. However please note that Forbidden city is closed everyday at 3:30pm if you plan to go. Dong also gave some basic information about the places we saw.

Dong made visiting the great wall simple and personal - most people visit the wall on a big tour bus but Dong was able to be flexible with our plans (we had to fly out the same day) which was incredibly valuable to us. We had a great time getting to know Dong and talking about life and culture.... while walking on the Great Wall of China! Thanks again Dong, what a special trip this was.
