We took this private tour in winter because it was less crowded. Though it was cold, the scenery was very good and there was no other people in our photos. Great!

The Badaling Section of the Great Wall was well-preserved and had good facilities. We took cable cars (at extra cost) which provided us a great bird's eye view. Privated car and guide were cool.
