We are a couple looking to climb the Great Wall in August and first enquired about the Simitai to Jinshaling hike. So glad we did as the service was great and our guide Robert was so informative, spoke clear English and never rushed us during the climb. It was truly a great day out and one of the best days...

I booked the Simitai west to Jinshanling trip. I emailed the website and asked if there were any small group tours. Kathy promptly emailed back to say that there was a single who had booked the Simitai to Jinshanling trip and that I could join. It ended up being 3 of us on the tour. Our guide was Cheney and...

Booked this as a small group tour, but was the only one. I was amazed to find that I basically had this part of the wall to myself, we saw few other tourists. It was so quiet and serene compared with the congested bustle of all the other tourist attractions in Beijing. These are the only photos of my brief... More

I recently went on the 2 day hike of the Great Wall. It was honestly one of the best things I've ever done. While initially being a bit overwhelmed with the city of Beijing it was so nice to drive away from the hustle and bustle and start the hike of the Great Wall. Robert my tour guide was an... More

Great group size, super guide who did the little things to make the tour special. From photos which he took and he e-mailed, to a snack for an energy boost, he thought of it all. A very good amount of information and backgound was provided without boring us. I've already recommended this to my friend.

Everything about the day was great... Cheney made the trip entertaining, informative, and safe... the part of the wall we chose to hike was amazingly picturesque and devoid of tourists, no wonder they called it the photographers' route. The 3.5 hour hike featured both new and old parts of the wall and approximately 20 towers. It was truly an amazing... More

I booked a one-day private tour for Jiankou to Mutianyu and I absolutely loved it. For cost efficiency, I considered getting myself to the Great Wall and doing it on my own, but in the end I decided to go with the tour and I'm so glad I did because it was worth every penny. I got to see parts... More

I had a great experience with Great wall hiking. The guide Tao was great, high energy and good English. He was considerate of all in the group. He made it very enjoyable. They are excellent and prompt with email, I was able to use paypal to pay, and they did not demand all up front, only $30 deposit, and I... More

This tour was much more than just seeing and hiking the Great Wall for my family. Our guide Cheney helped introduce us to the history of China, and the lives of people in China today. It was great to learn about China while we avoided the crowds and saw some beautiful scenery!

I did the 10k hike with my two adult children on a very rainy 2 July. The first 2k ( to the first tower) were very tough for me. Not too bad for the kids but even their legs were sore the next day. With the rain it was very muddy and slippery. This is not a maintained trail. One... More
