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.

The tour was something I feel we could've organized ourselves without the help of Great Wall Hiking. Our family of 4 took the Jiankou to Mutianyu (gwpa15) one day private tour. I chose this tour because I personally wanted the family to experience the nonrestored section of the wall. During the tour, our guide informed us that part of the... More

Dear Pak Sam T First of all, thank you for sharing your experience with us! I’m very sorry that you are disappointed with the experience on the Great Wall. It was a raining day and our guide was really concerning the safety of your group. However, we should be flexible and meet clients' special requirement. I’ve informed all our guides... More

This was a great experience! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 mile hike first climbing the old wall and then the new wall. Our guide was great! Very knowledgeable and easy to get along with.

We had a great day with Cheney, spoke excellent English and had lots of stories to tell about the history of the wall and china in general. Would highly recommend. The views are out of this world and Cheney took photos on his camera and emailed them to us that evening. Great customer service

I booked this full day Great Wall tour as I wanted to get away from the crowds and other reviews of the tour were really great. I am happy to report that the tour far exceeded my expectations! The tour was comprised of 6 people from the U.S. , Switzerland and Germany, and was led by tour guide Yaxin and... More

Private one day hiking tour. Picked up at our hotel in Beijing and driven about 2.5 hours to where our hike began (good driver, comfortable van). Hiked about 1 hour up to the wall and about 2.5 hours on the wall. Many watch-towers, spectacular views. Bring a camera! Our guide was Tao who is very knowledgable, friendly and considerate. Enjoyed... More

We did the private one day walk (GWPA15) from Jiankou to Mutianyu. You are collected at your hotel and taken to the start of the walk. The start of the walk is a 30 minute steep zigzag walk up through a lovely wooded area on a dirt track. I thought that I might have bitten off more than I could... More

Having lived in China for over two years before deciding to finally check the Great Wall off my bucket list, I decided I didn't want to do it at Badaling or Mutianyu with all of the other tourists. Having heard about the so-called 'Wild Wall', I was excited to see the wall without a million selfie-stick toting tourists to ruin... More
