Our family of 2 adults, 2 teenagers did an overnight camp on the wall with China Hiking and had a great time. Thanks Fred and Heidi, you thought of everything! Great company, great food - watching Heidi cook up a feast over one small cooker was an experience in itself. We'll definitely be looking to join you on future tours.... More

I did the Jiankou to Mutianyu hike in November. I really enjoyed being able to see both unrestored and restored sections of the Great Wall. The round trip transfer was comfortable. Lunch was fun and a nice way to get to know the other hikers. Worth every penny. Ron

My hiking trip to the great wall with Fred and Heidi was one of the best highlights of my stay in China! We went to a part of the wall which is far away from the tourist crowds yet still intact and in its original authentic shape. Walking on top of the Chinese wall through a rugged mountainous terrain is... More

Really enjoyed getting out of the bustle of Beijing. What I liked about this hike firstly, is that they didn't cancel last minute as other companies have done. Secondly, they met at a decent time of day, ie not too early, and at a convenient subway. Well organised, small group and decent mini bus. Good price for a full day... More

Thanks Heidi and Fred for a great day out from the maddening crowd. I booked a day trip and experienced dream of a life time. Transport, lunch (delicious), professional guides and atmosphere was exceptional. To have a chance to see, exploare and walk along the ancient wall with no other tourists was absolutely magnificent. I only wish I could have... More

This is a once in a lifetime experience. Definitely the best thing I did in Beijing and easily the most memorable part of my time in China so far. Check out more photos, video and my full review of our trip to the Great Wall at Gubeikou with Fred and Heidi on my blog: http://bit.ly/greatwall1

Our one day hike on the wall was truely excellent and the highlight of our trip. Fred and Heidi were always contactable and easy to communicate with. The lunch provided was great and suitable for most dietary preferences. Away from the city and usual tourist hotspots, the hike provided us with amazing views of both the mountains and Wall. Our...

Excellent choice for those who want to see the real Great Wall, not the crowded and recently renovated Badaling which lacks any spirit of it. We booked a day trip and had an amazing experience: delicious lunch before climbing, breathtaking landscapes and the Wall just for ourselves for few hours, with no one to bother. This is how you really... More

It's a two hour bus ride from Beijing, but worth it! Starting with a delicious lunch at a nearby farmhouse. Then a lovely hike on an unrestored section of the Wall during which we saw 8 people!

Amazing and relaxed trip thanks to fred :-). We had enough time to enjoy the wonderful view over the ladscape, no hurry. Fred choosed a non touristique part of the wall, so that we could enjoy it almost on our own
