My partner and I went on a great wall tour with Cathy and Xie in May 2023. It was an awesome and stress-free way to see it. Cathy took us to the Huanghuacheng section of the wall which was pretty quiet due to it being the early morning and being further away from Beijing. If you want to avoid the crowds I'd recommend visiting this section. Cathy has a lot energy and is very outgoing, which made the day most interesting. She has lots of facts and knowledge about Beijing, the Great Wall and Chinese culture. We also saw the Mutianyu section which was moderately busy but still enjoyable, it has great views and the reconstruction part gives the impression of what it once looked like "back in the day". Cathy was more than happy to take endless pictures of us. I'd recommend this tour with Cathy if you want a stress free, everything taken care of experience.
Dear Ross; Thanks so much for your lovely words, I had really amazing day with you and Amanda, lots of fun and memories, at Huang Hua Cheng and both Mu Tian Yu, hope a great journey back to country, and welcome back to Beijing again in the future : ) Best regards Cathy
