The absolute star of our tour was undoubtedly the wall. It was a truly amazing experience to visit and to be a part of this stunning and impressive structure that holds such a special place in the history and soul of China.

We enjoyed our hike on the Great Wall. Chenney was an excellent guide and spoke very good English. He was patient with us as we were not the fastest hikers. We started on the wild wall which we all very much enjoyed the authenticity of and finished on the refurbished wall which was just as beautiful in a different way.... More

We spent ten wonderful days in China with two of our nearly adult children, and hands down consensus was that this was the best day of all. I think it was one of the most magical days of my life. I chose Great Wall Hiking based on their reviews and comprehensive website which outlines the demands of each hike and... More

As a small group with varied hiking experience we opted for a private tour with Peter as our guide. The entire day and experience was enjoyable from start to finish. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and on our drive to the trail head Peter showed us maps and gave us a very interesting and informative primer on... More

We did the one day small group hike, Simatai West to Jinshanling section with Great Wall Hiking. They promise a maximum of 8 people but our group was only 4. Our guide, Peter, was very knowledgeable, spoke excellent English and was really nice. During the drive to the starting point he told us the history and gave us each a... More

It rained part of the day when we were hiking. This made the first part of the walk challenging and in someways more fun. My right thigh definitely had a work-out! Our guide and the driver were great. It was a highlight of our visit to Beijing.

3 of us had a short 5 day trip in Beijing and of course, a visit to the Great Wall was on our list. We were not keen on visiting the slightly closer and much busier sections of the Wall, and decided to join the 'Small Group, Highlights of Great Wall Hiking-Simatai West to Jinshanling' day trip. We are VERY... More

Great hike on the Wall; very well planned and executed by the "Great Wall Hiking" team; tour guide and driver were very good; pickup at the hotel at the agreed time; good introduction and explanations; We saw and experienced the old (unrestored) and new part of the Great Wall. Would book it again.

A great day out. Climbing and walking along some of the steep slopes is physically taxing, but there are ample rest stops. Take a water bottle, and a sweat towel.

We did a 5 hour day tour starting on an older unrestored part of the wall and ending at a restored section. It was a truly awesome experience! We like to hike so we took the most demanding day tour, thinking there would it would be the least touristy of the bunch. And it was, for the first hours of... More
