This company was far the best ever. Our personal guide, Cheney, was the best and extremely very helpful and useful. My husband & I are not young by any means so he was there to help me get over some of the very big steps that were hard for my legs to handle. He answered all our questions and then... More

We had a fantastic day escorted by Robert who was extremely knowledgeable , friendly and good company. We walked to watch tower 23, which was quite challenging but were aided by the walking poles that Robert had brought for us to use. We were supplied with plenty of water and snacks along the way. We tobogganed down after which was... More

Overall, this was a well done experience on the part of the tour group. Everything was straightforward to get setup. The hike was nice, especially the early section through the less restored section of the walk. It was a national holiday in China, which I suspect would have added visitors, but we had the wall mostly to ourselves for much... More

My husband and I took a one-day hike with Peter and had a wonderful experience. We are so happy we hired this tour and visited a part of the wall that was more remote than the restored parts closer to the city. If you want a scenic and memorable day hike, we highly recommend this walk. Peter shared with us... More

My husband and I are glad that we hired a tour guide. Our guide was Peter and he was great! He is very knowledgeable and explained the history of the Great Wall in details. He also took lots of pictures for us!!! Our hike was a day trip including a 2+ hours drive from Beijing to Jinshanling, and the actual... More

I had a brief break on a hectic business trip, and decided to go visit the Great Wall. I wanted to experience not just the rehabbed section, but also the original 600+ year old structure. This hike allowed both, and I have to tell you, it was an outstanding experience. From the initial inquiry via email, through to my hotel... More

My guide was great. Knowledgeable about the Wall and the history and the areas nearby. There is plenty of time to go at you own pace. Never felt rushed. Loved being in areas not well used by tourists. My pictures are beautiful even though spring hadn't arrived yet. The homestay had great food and I was very hungry after hiking.... More

Two things describes better this hiking tour: 1.- The choice: how they choose to meet the Great wall, from the unrestored part to restored. First you meet the original wall and discover it just like it was after years, then you meet the restored part just how it was at the very begining. 2.- The guides: Robert is a great... More

Fabulous and professional service - and no communication issues! We were picked up from our hotel at 7:30 am by a master driver in a mini bus! Our guide - Peter - was excellent, and gave us a very clear explanation regarding the history of the wall, it's location and lots of other tidbits. The drive took 2 hours, and... More

Great Wall is a experience nobody should miss if visiting China. Several tours are available with different lenght. I decided for the 5 hours hiking tour to see part of the "original" not restored wall, as well as the restored part. The hike is worth every minute on the wall. I booked a guided tour on www.greatwallhiking.com. The booking was... More
