“We didn`t have any problem during the trip, everything was perfect but we had problems before the trip with the organizing company. We visited a jade sculpture - jewelry company and it was expensive place, so we didn`t buy anything but pretty cool, we enjoyed it, then we went to Ming tombs and had a great Chinese lunch! After that we had 2 hours at the Great Wall which was enough for us and we had a great time there, the views are gorgeous! We walked up (it`s just 15-20 minutes) and took the slide downward and it was awesome! Then we drove back to the downtown and visited a teahouse where we could try some very nice (and expensive) teas (included in the package) and then back to our hotel. Like i said there was no problem during the trip, car was good, driver was good and the guide was friendly. Before the trip we had communication problems with the company, they didn`t answer to our messages on Bookmundi or to our emails, not even when we called the costumer service! They only replied when someone from Bookmundi emailed to them too on the day of our trip. So we took the trip one day later.”
