Private guide for 4 to the Great Wall

by Callavetta

We would like to take a Sunday trip to the Great Wall and would like a private guide for four English speakers, one mobility limited. Anyone have experience with someone they particularly liked?

Hello Katherine,

When I was in Beijing I had the concierge at the hotel hire the guide. My experience is that they hire a driver, then a guide - but your hotel might just get you a driver - unless you actually also want a guide. I know I probably paid a little higher than I should but I had the guide plus driver for an entire day, including the drive to Mutianyu for $150 USD.

Which part of the wall do you want to see? I read that Badaling is closer to Beijing, but more restored - so I went to Mutianyu, so I can relate my Mutianyu experience as far as the person who is a little limited.

First, the restrooms have stairs - should be OK, but these are mostly the squat restrooms, I don't really remember if they had sit down toilets at the wall. Why do I mention the restroom first - well, you'll probably want to stop here before going to the wall.

You climb some light stairs and then take a gondola which will take you to the wall. When I was there, one of the Special Olympic teams was there, don't recall which country, but some of them had artificial limbs, and another carried a wheel chair - not a very easy feat because parts of the wall are pretty challenging.

There are about 14 towers in one side, and a handful of towers in the other, and most people just walk around. Getting to the end can be challenging - I did it, but I was glad when I finally got back, and my guide, who I had asked to stay behind was all worried because she said she did not know too many people that went to the end. So ... I say this because you may want to think and or plan what you will do when you get there. Will this person do a little walking?

This wiki link has a little explanation and better yet they also have a link to the official site that explains a little about Mutianyu and lists a couple of agencies that can do private tours (although they also do regular tours). You would need to make sure and tell them you don't want to be stuck in any factories. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutianyu

Hope this helps.

We just returned from our Beijing trip and hired Alvin to take us to the Great Wall. He was highly recommended by others in VT.

Alvin was very reliable and he provided very valuable information on the Great Wall and China. He can design a agenda based on your need. It was money well spent.

His price ranges from $730RMB to around $850RMB, depending on the type of car.

You can email him at alvinbenton@yahoo.com.

Travel Tips for Beijing

An elderly Chinese man passes...

by 550Mall

An elderly Chinese man passes by a clothing stall selling T-shirts and vests promoting Beijing's bid to host the 2008 Olympic Games July 11, 2001. As Beijing's bid to host the games enters the home strait, big business is drooling at the prospect of the largest marketing event ever in the world's most populous country. The International Olympic Committee will vote for the host city on Friday. The Chinese capital of Beijing is considered a front runner to win the vote.

Watching Diving

by SLLiew

At the mesmering Water Cube Aquatic Center, it was exciting watching diving.

For Beijing Olympics, there are 8 diving events. Men and women 3m and 10m for both individual and synchronized (two person) events.

China has been the major power houses but often do not sweep all the events. This time, China won seven out of eight gold medals, the lone medal going to Australia when the Chinese favorites falter under pressure.

Diving is like ballet in the air before a clean splash into the water. Great to watch. Need to understand that different sommersault dives have different level of difficulty which give higher scores if done perfectly. In the final, there are 5 dives each and a poor dive will be disastrous.

The Battle field

by peperoni about Silk Market

I call this place a battle field,because you have to "figth" harder to get good prices,they will try to kill you with their prices.
Everything is fake,but many are really good imitations.
Don't be intimidated when they seize you,.......look look friend louis vuitton,bla bla bla
It´s a bit confused,but be concentrate to get a good price.
Ex. if they ask you 2.200 yuan´s for a gorotex jacket,,very expensive of course.
....put your price,don´t be afraid put 50 on the calculator,they tell you you are killing them,it´s the term they use.so the deal begins until the final price for this exemple shouldn't be more then 150 or 200 yuan's.
It´s a funny way to do bussiness,remember to have always a smile in your lips.
Good luck.

Bright Lights and Crowds

by junkgirl about Wangfujing Street

The stores on Wangfujing stay open till about 9 or 10pm. The Mcdonalds just outside SunDongAn Plaze until midnight, blasting it theme song at full volume from open till close. At first i thought there was a club nearby but soon realised it is McDonalds that was pumping the volume.
You can go into Wangfujing Food Street which runs off Wangfujing Street where you find not just interesting food (scorpion and seahorse skewers!) but souvernirs too. Don't get too pissed off with the waiter/tresses trying to convince you, almost dragging you to dine at their humble restaurant though, they are just doing their job. Almost all of them are non-Beijingers from villages or towns and they may not be aware that their persistence is rude to some
Crowds start to disperse close to midnite but there are hawkers selling all sorts of stuffs (baked sweet potatoes, dvds) after the stores close.
It is nice just to stroll along the pedestrian mall, people watching - locals chew on their 'ping tang hu lu' (candied fruits) while shopping and non-locals wandering around. Anything
