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

This was an absolutely amazing experience made even better by the fantastic service we received. Our guide was knowledgeable with excellent English and we were picked up promptly from our hotel and returned comfortably after the hike.

This was definitely the highlight of our three weeks in China! We hiked 6km from Simatai West to Jinshaling. It was absolutely breathtaking (great for photos) and we saw maybe only 10 other people on the wall for the duration of our hike (one of the advantages of using this company - during Winter they are one of very few,...

Havnig checked out other tour operators, we decided to go with Great Wall Hiking on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! We had a great day visiting Jinshanling and Simatai with our tour guide Cheney, who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Comfortable transport to and from the wall was provided as well as a delicious meal... More

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
