In July we did the overnight Great Wall hike with Fred and Heidi. It was just a wonderful and great experience. The part of the Great Wall was spectacular, and truly wild. Certain sections are nothing for the faint-hearted, but our kids had great fun. The organization of tents and sleeping bags was just great. Fred even made it possible... More

Me and my girlfriends hiking trip with Fred and Heidi to the wall were simply the best day out of our 7 days in Beijing. We were picked up at a central metro station and had a 2 hour drive to a part of the wall. We then had lunch at a local small city. After lunch we climbed a... More

After spending a day at forbidden palace with several million tourists I wasn't down for another tourist adventure to the Great Wall. Luckily I read about Freds private tour and signed up. It was only a 3.3 mile hike but with over 1.3k of climbing it was a good hike considering the heat. You can view the hike here http://www.strava.com/activities/187149937

We stopped for a delicious lunch at a local residence near by then head a short trip to our starting point. Loaded up with approximately 12-13 kilos in my backpack(tent, sleeping items & water provided by vendors... More

I did the 2 day - camping trip to the Gubeikou section of the wall ( a "wild" section) Heide and Fred are excellent! The entire trip was excellent and no worries about communication, payment or me no speaking any Chinese! - Thanks Fred and Heidi for a memorable experience.

If you are not the type of person who wants to run through the Great Wall with million other tourists, take two pictures and rush back to Beijing, then the China Hiking tour by Fred and Heidi is what you are looking for. We had two amazing days with magnifique sceneries, authentic local food and great guide. Seeing the sunset... More
