What to take on your trip
We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes. Flip-flops or heels are not very good for walking on the Great Wall / city sites for several hours. It always helps to be prepared, so check the weather forecast to see if rain, snow or very cold / hot weather is predicted. If weather extremes should occur, our drivers & guides will do their best to keep you dry, warm, or cool depending on what is needed.
Hire a guide or just a driver
Visiting with tour guide you will learn about the culture and history of the place on a deeper level and from a local’s perspective. A guide is your personal resource. You will be able to ask as many questions as you want. However, the cost of tour guide hire is an additional expense, whether small or large. Usually English speaking guide (not driver, two separate persons) costs 550RMB –750RMB per day, 8-9 working hours.
If pre-travel research and a good guide book is sufficient for you, then a much less expensive option is to hire a Non-English / Chinese speaking driver to take you around. You won’t get as much of the history, but driver can take you to the sites, wait for you and he knows where to take you and when to bring you back. If any problem arises please call our office (+86 185 1025 4530) if there is any misunderstanding with the non-English speaking driver.
Meeting & recognizing your driver / guide
Your driver / guide will hold up a sign with your name at the hotel lobby or outside apartment, an Airbnb, or inform the receptionist of your hotel to meet you.
Purchase entrance tickets in advance or not
It’s not necessary to purchase tickets in advance. The ticket office at the foot of the Great Wall is open daily. Cable car / toboggan tickets are available at ticket office either at the entrance or on the top. You can usually waltz up to the door and get right in—maybe you’ll have to wait all of five minutes in line.
Drivers always waiting at the sites
Your driver will wait until you finish the visit of any sites, and will take care of your belongings. A cost for the car, their food and accommodation will always be included in the driver’s fee.
