What To Expect

Two famous locations for cultural experiences around Beijing are the Simatai area of the Great Wall and Gubei Water Town. You'll be visiting both these locations, exploring their landscapes, and learning about their past and significance to Chinese culture. Starting in Gubei Water Town, you'll see the famous Mandarin Duck Lake Reservoir that holds the water flowing through the town itself. Admire the northern architectural style of its carefully preserved old buildings, standing in elegance and full of street shows, before proceeding to the next destination close by. Against Gubei Water Town's lake is the Simatai area of the iconic Great Wall of China. This UNESCO World Heritage site has been partially restored, allowing you to climb up upon the battlements to take in the marvelous views of the jagged mountains and their greenery. The view changes throughout the seasons, casting new colors with every visit. Your tour ends back in downtown Beijing at the drop off.

    My name is Marisol Banks ..I signed up on October 12 for the Samatai Great Wall day tour ..the night before Michelle called me that I will be picked up in my hotel with 3rd ring location..unfortunately she sent a Uber driver to pick me up to drive to the meeting location...the problem the driver picked up more customers on the way to my meeting point.. instead of 5 km 15 minutes drive to the meeting point the drive took more than hour so the bus tour left coz I was late..I felt so disappointed for missing my long awaited Great Wall walk but what angered me most that I have to walk from meeting point to my hotel coz most taxi drivers can’t understand English..when I arrived in the hotel am looking for the tour agency thru Klook but you did not provide information so I have to send you messages thru your inquiry..I demanded a refund and you should talk to the tour agencies that provide your services to follow proper business protocol so this incident does not happen will be best the company should have their own drivers who will pick up customers rather unknown drivers for our safety...I forgot my tour reference number so just get the information from my email address..thanks for giving me the opportunity to express my ordeal on this incident 🙏
