    We did the Simatai - Gubei Water town trip with our driver Lily. She was right on time at the hotel and throughout the trip she was kind and enthusiastic, dropped us of right in front of the gate. Good service, would definately contact Leo’s again for future trips.

    We have been to 3 other sections of the Great Wall and we highly recommend this trip for families & couples because your access to the wall is right from the water town. The water town is very quaint & beautiful itself, with 5 star lodging, restaurants, shopping and activities. The amenities provided in the town, makes the trip to see the wall a lot easier for families with kids, couples wanting a romantic trip, or older people needing a bit more comfort. This section of the wall is very picturesque, views of the wall go on & on, walking is very steep and doable for folks who are fit, otherwise take the cable car and take water with you. Leo’s Tour was great, the staff is very responsive, accommodating to your special requests and very informative. Mr. Ma was our tour guide and driver. He was excellent- try to book him if you can. He is a safe driver, provided us with water, was very informative, handled everything for us and made sure we had a great trip. He also takes great pictures, which he shared with us to make it more memorable. We will go back again and. Book again with Leo’s your and request Mr Ma as our guide.

    We used Leo’s tour for two days. The first day was Simatai Great Wall with English driver. The second day was Forbidden city and Summer palace with tour guide. Both the driver and tour guide are very professional and friendly. They tried their best to accommodate our needs. We’re really enjoyed both days. Highly recommend.

    I was traveling solo through Beijing, and I wanted to have an ability to visit the Great Wall on my own time. My driver/tour guide was Jason, and he was promptly awaiting to pick me up from my hotel, and drove me very comfortably to the Gubei Water Town. He took the time to walk me to the admission counter to help with purchasing my tickets, and even took some time to show me the map and make a recommendation for how to best spend my time. I really appreciated the tips he shared, and how easy he made my day trip to Gubei Water Town. The wall was breathtaking, and a great location to choose if you want minimal crowds. I recommend going early in the morning to avoid the afternoon rush. I highly recommend Leo’s Tour Guide and Driver Service. Jason was an amazing host.

    We were very happy with the organization of the tour company and Jason, our english-speaking driver, who helped us wherever he could. However, during Chinese holidays the water town and the Great Wall will probably be very crowded.

    When I contacted the company to inquire about a private tour, they were very prompt in replying. They picked us up at our hotel on time as promised, and gave an overview of the history of the wall and Gubei Water town. Our driver was Jason and he was very knowledgeable and friendly and spoke English well, and helped us communicate in getting the admission tickets we needed to enter the town and for the Great Wall visit. He was also very flexible with our schedule and what we wanted to do that day. Gubei Watertown is a quaint area, although not a 'real town', it was recreated beautifully and is gorgeous lit up at night. I would recommend this company for anyone who wants a personal driver to Gubei Watertown and Simatai Great Wall.
