What people are saying about City Tours in Beijing
Cool tour and this section of the Great Wall with adjacent beautiful Gubei Water Town is just amazing. Smooth transport and pick up from hotel, Susie our guide was great and we got to hike on top of the Great Wall for around 90 minutes. Takes the full day given it's further away from Beijing than the more crowded sections like Badaling or Mutianyu.
My tour guide Mike gave us the background history of great wall, which is informative. He gave insights on what to look out before we start our climb ...... which is helpful so that we know what to look out for!! In addition, Miake is also very resourceful and informative whenever I asked advice on Beijing even though is not related to this trip!! I truly enjoyed my trip there as he ensured all of us are taken care of.

Mike is our English tour guide, because of him we were able understand the tour information, he gave facts not only about Greatwall and it's history, but as well as Beijing itself, which is additional bonus factor to us tourist. I have learned a lot of history about Beijing. I can guarantee that Klook is the most reliable tour booking so far.
And of course the foods were GREAT, they offered the best of the best of traditional Chinese Cuisine along with the tour, we also didn't wait for long time to order, food were served immediately. By the way this is my first time booking with Klook and I will make sure to book again once I will travel again.
For easier understanding of
my classic package n attraction:
*Klook worked with local bus transport co for return transfer Beijing City fr/to Mutianyu Great Wall
*Pick up at my hotel lobby located between Beijing 2nd and 3rd ring road (good to check with operator via Klook to confirm if your hotel is within pick-up area). If doesn't then you need to make your way to bus departure pt near Swissotel, possible via subway
*Klook upon booking will send confirmation followed by tour voucher
*Local operator will send email confirmation and on lobby pick up time. Will also call accommodation reception to convey message if pick up time changes

C:- Chairlift (RMB 120 rtn, 100 for one way up or down) to/from tower 6. Option to take toboggan slide down
**I chose cable up to level 14, walk down to level 6 and take toboggan down to base level
Note that Great Wall is constructed over series of mountains terrains so while you head down from the higher level to lower level, you actually still had to walk up and down (sometime) steep path of the Great Wall. And it gets very tiring
