There are many agencies which organize treks of the Great Wall in Beijing, but I was extremely happy with GreatWallhiking. Firstly, you get an English guide who is extremely friendly and is interested that you get a nice experience. I took the 1-day tour. They arrange an air-conditioned shuttle to and from the Great Wall, and even a nice post... More

We had an absolutely fantastic day hiking two sections of the Great Wall - a 10K hike over the course of a Saturday. Guide Robert from Great Wall Hiking was absolutely outstanding. We are experienced hikers so he drove a good pace while providing a huge amount of value in pointing out parts of the wall, discussing the history of... More

The trip to the Great Wall I did with Great Wall Hiking was excellent from reservation back to drop-off. I was very impressed with their communication when I first contacted them, and the back and forth to get that confirmed and such was excellent. The trip itself went very well and was a nice blend of a hike to see... More

Please note that due to the time of year (early December) I had a private trip with Peter as my guide; if you join a group trip your experience may be different. Although early December can be quite chilly and lacks vegetation (it's 20-25 degrees Fahrenheit out) it's a great way to see the wall if you want some privacy...for... More

Many thanks to the guide Mr. Wu for a great day of hiking. 6km of easy pace and amazing view. The only downside is the driver who refused to take us to the destination on the way back, because of the traffic jam. It was an embarrassing moment. Luckily we got there as planned. Minus that, it was a great... More

I booked myself on the small group Simatai West to Jinshanling one day hike after reading the other positive reviews on TA. On arrival at the meeting point it transpired I was the only one booked on the tour that day & therefore got a private tour for the price of a group tour - lucky lucky me. I was... More

We chose Great Wall Hiking one day private tour at Mutianyu for our trip in January 2014, in a group of 4 people. Peter was our designated guide and he was more than we could ever hope for: he offered us all the information about the Great Wall part we were about to visit, has great command of English and...

My wife and I booked a private hike on the Simatai West to Jinshanling potion of the Great Wall in mid November 2014. We chose Great Wall hiking based on a recommendation of a friend who used their services twice - and we were not disappointed. Our interaction with the team at Great Wall began over email with Kathy and... More

The memories of this walk will stay with me for ever, what an unforgettable experience. Great Wall Hiking were great, everything was arranged perfectly. If you want to experience the Great Wall, including the wild parts bereft of tourists, in just a day, then I can't recommend Great Walk Hiking highly enough

We chose the Jiankou to Mutainu hike because it was longer and on an un-retouched section of the Great Wall. We could not have been happier with our choice. The hike was up was stunning and the Jiankou portion unreal. Peter, our guide, allowed us an extra challenge of a loop in the Great Wall. With 70 degree slopes it... More
