    I just completed my Water Town and Simatai Great Wall tour and could not recommend it more! I decided last minute to book a solo trip last night and definitely have no regrets. Marco picked me up at 7:30 in my hotel lobby and we drove the 2 hours to Water Town where we strolled through the town early enough to avoid the crowds. We then grabbed the cable car up to the Wall and even though it was overcast and chilly the views were breathtaking. I even got history lessons along the way which I very much appreciated! After walking back down we stopped at a restaurant in Water Town for lunch and had delicious food and great conversation. If you have a free day in Beijing and want to see the Great Wall and a traditional but tourist friendly town I would definitely book this tour!

    My friend and I wanted to be away from where the crowds are. We also felt that the Great Wall alone wouldn't be enough to fill our day. Gubei was a very interesting addition to the Great Wall. Probably it was even the better part of the trip. If you don't mind of a 2 hours driving one way, it's a perfect itinerary. Our guide Linda was kind and patient. We stopped a lot to take our photos. Linda also took some good photos from us (my friend and me) together and sent them to me via e-mail. She didn't talk too much, but in my point of view this was the right thing. The driver also was very handsome and did a great job. If joining the crowds at Badaling isn't your thing, Simatai & Gubei is more than just an alternative.

    This is the best tour I’ve even taken- every penny and time spent on this was totally worth it! Lily my guide was outstanding, she picked me up from my hotel and took me to the Water Town and then to see the magnificent Great Wall in the night illuminated. Lily was super friendly, accommodative and patient with all my request. She explained to me the history and significance of the place. I love taking pictures wherever I go and lily was super patient with that and also helped me click some amazing pictures. Seeing the Great Wall at night through the Watertown was great experience and I recommend this to everyone. The drive to the water town was also very scenic from Beijing. The next time I am in Beijing, I will only tour with Lily!!! She is the best!!!
