My mother and two of my friends booked a private tour with Great Wall Hiking and did the Highlight of the Great Wall from Simatai West to Jinshanling. Peter was our guide and he was amazing. We were very lucky as the air was clear and it had snowed the day before so the views were AMAZING! Peter was an... More

We booked this review based on previous positive tripadvisor reviews. We were looking for a small group that avoided the main tourist traps (Badaling). Hiking the Great Wall from West Simitai to Jinshanlin was so much fun. From the breathtaking views the entire way, to the informative background provided by our guide (Robert), to the delicious meal we enjoyed at... More

I scheduled a one day walking tour using GreatWallHiking and I could not be more satisfied. After researching the Great Wall, I knew I wanted a remote and authentic experience. As a Westerner in China I wanted a guide and personal experience exploring the Wall. GreatWallHiking and our guide, Peter, provided an unforgettable experience. Peter picked us up in a... More

Hiking the Great Wall from Jiankou to Mutianyu was one of the highlights of China for our family. This hike allows people to see and walk on both the unrestored sections of the Great Wall as well as the restored sections at Mutianyu. By doing this hike you get the best of both worlds. My husband and I hiked with... More

You have to keep moving to different sections for the best Great Wall experience and Great Wall Hiking seems to have you covered. I have hosted dozens of excursions to the Great Wall for more than 10 years. Yes, even going Badaling back in 2005. Then I "discovered" Mutianyu and began taking people there. After the tourists overran Mutianyu, we... More

Great wall is a very amazing place of the world and i got the opportunity to hike to the top and there was no end. You can see three to four entrances to the great wall. I thoroughly enjoyed through out the journey.

I had a fantastic experience with Peter and two other tourists. Peter knew what looked like all the best spots for photos and was happy to let us move at our own pace. His English was great which made communication easy and he was able to share a lot of the wall's history with us too. Besides the wall, he... More

Walking the great wall was the highlight of our trip to Beijing the beginning of February. Yaxin was an excellent guide on a 10k tour which started at a fairly remote area. Parts of the hike were fairly steep and the views were excellent. Because it was off season, there were not many other people at the wall. At the... More

The trip was well organized from start to finish. From maps and written handouts given and gone over in the van ride. Drinks provided to stay hydrated. Great meal at restrurant at end. Our guide "Peter" was very knowledgable and english was not a problem. One feature of the hiking tour is that you climb 300 m by dirt trail... More
