A Must do experience

What an awesome experience. Climbing the mighty steps, very uneven at times varying from a single step to a four step height. Lots of vantage points to enjoy the view.

The Simatai West to Jinshangling one-day small group hiking tour was a fantastic chance to take in the true magnitude of the Great Wall. The meeting time was 8am at Dongzhimen Station where we met Tao, our tour guide. It's about a 2-hour drive to Simatai, then a hike up to the Kylin Tower of the wall itself. The hike... More

I booked this hike based on TripAdvisor reviews, and I could not be happier with the experience. I did this hike as a solo woman, and felt comfortable and safe the entire time. My guide, Yaxin, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and allowed me to hike at my own pace. Don't be fooled like I was, this is a real... More

My experience with Great Wall Hiking was an excellent one, both before and during my hike the service delivered was reassuring and of a professional standard. Before setting out to China I dealt with Kathy at Customer Services via email her prompt efficient and detailed replies made me feel no question/inquiry felt too silly or unimportant to ask!

As part of a 5 week trip across Asia my four friends and I decided we wanted to explore the Great Wall. I found Great Wall Hiking here on tripadvisor and we selected the Jainkou to Mutianyu route. The reviews were precisely on point! Our amazing guide Peter met us at the hotel and we boarded a nicely equipped van... More

Well worth the extra time to travel to Simatai to see the Great Wall. It was very quiet, and the guide was very good. Also the food was great at the end. I would strongly recommend this trip - local Chinese seem to be amazed that the area is so quiet. Tip: If you arrive at the meeting place on... More

I decided to escape the City and visit the Great Wall for a 2 day trek, I found out about Great Wall Hiking after reading the positive reviews from TripAdvisor. I really enjoyed the experience and Yaxin (AKA Eason) was a wonderful and attentive guide. Yaxin was full of interesting information, he was very patient when I was getting tired.... More

Basically it's a private tour of the Great Wall where we were picked up at our hotel by our driver and our personal guide (Cheney). The driver dropped us off at this remote, ruined section of the Wall and we walked through (with our guide) to the established (tourist) section and then after a gondola ride we me our driver...

This was a really good day! I'm very grateful we could organise it at very short notice (48 hours). Yaxin was our guide and he was really good giving us information on the wall as we were progressing on the hike. He even re-enacted some of the actions that may have taken place there under attack! Great fun! The beginning... More

This was a great trip. They picked us up at our hotel right on time. The guide was excellent. The hike is a bit strenuous, but well worth the effort. The guesthouse was nicer than we expected and the dinner was delicious.
