Jinshanling Bus Tour: Who's the Best?

Jinshanling Bus Tour Reviews: The Great Wall Adventure Club

I was recommended by a friend to book Jinshanling bus tour to bring a family from Canada to visit Beijing in October 2019. I booked through Great Wall Adventure Club and found their service is one of the best among all the Great Wall tours in Beijing.

The Jinshanling Great Wall lies on a branch of Yanshan Mountain, at the junction of Luanping County, Chengde City, Hebei Province, and Miyun County, Beijing. It takes 2.5 hours by bus to get there. It's a little long than going to Mutianyu for a tour, but it is worth the effort. According to the New York Times, "The stretch of wall between Gubeikou and Jinshanling, is considered a prime example of Ming dynasty construction."

The following reviews are from the customers who have toured Jinshanling in 2019. Hope it'll be useful if you plan a tour to Jinshanling with a direct bus from downtown Beijing in 2021.

The Reviews of Jinshanling Bus Tour

  • The Great Wall Bus has a very good service, comprehensive guide, very comfortable bus, and its own rest area, where you can drink free tea, especially on New Year's Day when it is cold. The place can rest really special good. There is also a buffet on the second floor with plenty of food, 60 per person, which is super cheap here.
  • On the first day of the New Year, I chose to go up to the Great Wall to play at the Jinshanling Great Wall, not as convenient as going to Badaling. The Great Wall Bus guide Wang Jun gave a detailed and patient introduction of the attractions and various notes, 9:30 to climb and 12:30 to return to the Great Wall Bus newly opened rest area. Affordable now. All in all, had a great time, kudos to Great Wall Bus and kudos to the Wang Jun tour guide.
  • This is my first time in Beijing, and I'm glad I chose Great Wall Bus to go to the Great Wall. It was very comfortable and convenient, and our guide, Wang Tao, explained the history of the Great Wall on the bus. The most important thing is, they can help you to buy the tickets, so you don't have to queue up, and you don't have to figure out how to get there.
  • Today, our tour guide Han took us to the Great Wall of Jinshanling, he was very nice, warm and generous to the tourists, explained the introduction carefully and patiently, and answered the questions raised by the tourists in time.
  • Climbing twice is very sore, intermittent questioning life, sustained cheer. The medical workers are free, thanks to the guide, Lao Zhang, the country and the party. The next time I will bring a friend to come.
  • Guide Zhou's service is enthusiastic, professional, patient and serious, very good, next time friends come to look for him!

  • For the first time, I took my children to the Great Wall in Jinshanling, and the experience was very good, the vehicle was brand new at eight o'clock in the morning, and I arrived at the foot of the Great Wall soon after the enthusiastic and professional explanation of the guide from Xiao Zhou, and the return time was very clear at three o'clock in the afternoon.
  • The first time to the Great Wall to choose Jinshanling is right, choose Jinshanling is wise, the whole pure play, no additional spending, the leader Tan Wei is very professional, choose Jinshanling first free ferry costs, the second is cheap to buy tickets and cable car tickets and directly to the hands of tourists praise, direct air conditioning big passenger, I also slept a sleep ha, climbing. After the Great Wall back in a special rest area, the price is also very reasonable, very satisfied, took a lot of photos, all are blockbuster feeling, super value. Once again, I would like to thank Tan Wei for his excellent presentation. I didn't come for nothing.
