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

Excellent day trip to hike a section of the Great Wall with few other visitors at the outset. Group size was only 4 which allowed us to go at our own pace. Our guide, Tao, was very friendly and knowledgeable and did a great job taking care of us. The guide and driver were at the meeting point prior to... More

My husband and I just returned from an amazing day at the Great Wall. A great hike, made even better because of our guide, Cheney! He was friendly, organized, and incredibly knowledgable about Chinese History and the history of the Great Wall. The day started at 7:15am, we had requested to start the day a bit earlier than 8 and... More

We were keen to get away from the tourists when we visited the wall and that's exaclty what our tour guide helped us do. We really had the experience of a lifetime walking along about 10km of the wall. We started in a remote location with barely anyone else around. The guide had everything prepared, even superglue for the sole... More

This was a great trip out. Our guide Tao met us in our hotel lobby at 8am and we drove about 2 hours to the drop off area. The driver was careful and calm and got us there safely. Tao recommended that we get some sleep on the way there as it was a hot day (about 32c) and the... More

I have traveled quite a bit and I must say this was the best organized tour I have ever been on. Peter is amazing- he has incredible knowledge (he even gave us a 4 page summary he wrote of the Great Wall history),speaks amazing English, and was incredibly flexible with our group (a school group of teenage boys). Additionally the... More

We recently hiked the Great Wall taking the GWPA15-Trail of Great Wall Hiking tour. I made the decision to book through the GreatWallHiking company based on other TripAdvisor listings and research of the company's website. I did not do an exhaustive search on pricing with other companies, but really appreciated up-front statements by the GreatWallHiking company concerning their practice of... More

An amazing day! My friend and I booked the Simatai to Jinshanling hiking tour. We wanted an experience that was about the Great Wall, not about getting us to the next attraction or sales pitches on pearls. We definitely got what we wanted out of this experience! Our guide was Robert and he was just wonderful! We met in Beijing... More
