    Didn't spend enough time at the great wall of china. Spent more time at a jade store and tea store trying to sell us overpriced items. Plus the tour guide was fighting with one of the customers, then Talking Chinese to the driver who drove like a nut. Looks like he moonlights as a Triad member.

    This all day tour was a great deal at 32! Becky was our guide for this tour, and lead our small group through the ins and outs of the tour spots. She gave thorough explanations and histories and allowed enough time for us to check out each spot. We went to badaling, Ming Tombs, jade factory also where lunch is, and a tea house, which added up to an all day thing that lasted until about 5:30-6pm when we got dropped off back at the hotel or wherever you want inside beijing.

    While the guide and the driver were great, Badaling is actually very crowded and people can push and shove a bit on the climb. I am not sure if Mutianyu is any better. That is my only complaint.
